What people are saying about Hilton Head Island

From beginning to end, this was an excellent choice!! The crew were wonderful! We learned so many new facts about dolphins. The only somewhat negative comment I could say was that the captain had a clear view of the sunset at one point but didn’t stop the boat until it was behind some trees. I love seeing the sun setting straight to the water. Other than that, we would highly recommend!! Especially for families!

The cruise was absolutely wonderful. The crew was very welcoming and the service was outstanding. We were very pleased with our meal and the scenery during the cruise was absolutely beautiful.

It's was great . We are from Byron Ga. celebrating our 12th anniversary. The food was delicious. The staff was super friendly and the ship was very clean. We will be back.

We enjoyed our trip we see a lot of dolphins and get to watch the sunset and double rainbow!!! What a great trip!

Great ride for 90 minutes! You won't be disappointed.
