The dolphin adventure was beyond fun! I did not think I would really see dolphins but they were interactive and playful and I had a blast. I would definitely recommend and be back the next time I am in Tybee Island.

I was apprehensive when boarding the boat on Captain Derek's Dolphin Adventure; not because of anything to do with the establishment itself, but because I had never been on a boat in the ocean before! However, Captain Gator and First Mate Rebecca quickly put my husband and I at ease. Their lively banter and interesting historical facts made the boat... More

The crew Rebecca and Captain Gator were incredible! They knew just where to find the dolphins and they even had them surfing in our wake...we are somewhat local and will be back!

This tour is excellent. Captain Gator and Captain Chris were good with my daughter, who was very nervous about being on a boat.

We took the sunset tour, all of us had an amazing time!! Fun and informative and very kid friendly and engaged the girls attention the whole trip. They played music that the girls danced to. But best of all saw so many dolphins that towards the end the girls just wanted to dance and enjoy the ride. Sunset was gorgeous!!

My husband and I went on a dolphin cruise for our anniversary with Captain Derek's Gator and Rebecca in December 2016! The dolphins were very active and getting to see several lighthouses were absolutely amazing!

My family and I live about 30 minutes from Savannah, we were looking for some fun over the MLK weekend and decided on this. Rebecca was a great first mate and had great information. Gator was a delightful captain and both were outstanding host! We also saw several dolphins and highly recommended this to anyone interested!!

A company that still believes in customer service and is doing it right. If you are expecting a luxury liner, then go somewhere else, but if you are looking to have a great time and see Dolphins, while learning a little about Tybee island, then this is your place. We went Dolphin watching with three your children. The first day... More
