On Christmas Eve's day we zipped out to the Savannah River and received the gift of a beautiful day of fossil finding. Our guide Bennet and his brother pointed us in the right direction and let us loose. We found all sorts of treasures. Bennet was very knowledgeable and entertaining even for those of us who know the area. This... More

Our captain on this private charters name was Brit. He was a wealth of knowledge, but a fun, outgoing, full of life southern fella. We laughed, and he told us the history, the science, behind everything. From the marsh lands, to the animals, to federal rules (never feed the dolphins or its a $10,000 fine!) I didn't realize how everything... More

We had no expectations but we're thrilled with the depth of local knowledge, nature and navigating skills that Dave had. It was the most... More

My husband and I wanted to go to Little Tybee Island but were having a difficult time finding a charter that was reasonably priced. We found Sundial Charters had what we were looking for and after calling and posting to FaceBook we were able to connect and make plans for them to take us to Little Tybee. Captains Dave and...

While enjoying our beautiful and illuminating adventure with Renee and her husband Dave, I told them that we were relative newcomers to Tybee Island. We'd visited before, but never for more than a few nights. This time, we booked through Mermaid Cottages and took a week by the marsh. I asked Renee, longtime Tybee resident, and Dave, lifetime area resident,... More

I have been looking forward to this fossil trip for at least a year and it was very well worth the wait-I will do this trip again as soon as I get back to Tybee Island. Thank you so much Capt. Heidt and Capt. Padgett-you two are the BEST!
