Captain Gator and captain Mac kept the trip informative and fun. It was a beautiful day. We saw lots of dolphins including a momma and baby. It was great getting out on the water.

3 generations of ladies went on this boat outing, 23-73 years in ages. We all really enjoyed the experience. We saw some stunning sunsets and dolphins were everywhere following our boat. Would definitely go on the boat ride again.

Absolutely loved this tour with my parents in Tybee. Chris was our tour guide and he knew a lot about the area and was very nice. The dolphins were of course my favorite part since they are my favorite animals. I was not disappointed. Two of their boats made big waves and the dolphins performed a fun show for us... More

We took the daytime tour with Captain Gator and first mate (Rebecca, I think). We saw several dolphins, lots of birds, and enjoyed the water tour of the area surrounding Savannah. The Captain and first mate were knowledgeable and personable. It was a beautiful, fun, easy-going time.

We had a fun boat trip with Captain Gator. Saw quite a few dolphins. We enjoyed the first mates narration of the tour. The only reason we didn't give a 5 rating is that the seats were somewhat hard and uncomfortable.

We had a great time with Captain Gator! He and the first mate located a few pods of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins. They were jumping, flipping, and even mating. It was chilly, but they brought a few blankets for us to use and allowed us to bring any and all beverages onboard. I'd definitely recommend this tour!

Our family went on a sunset tour and absolutely loved it! They played music and gave so many interesting facts! Not sure who was more excited the kids or adults?! The sunset was phenomenal! And dolphins were really active! We visit Tybee Island every October and we definitely plan to do another Captain Derek Dolphin Tour! We have recommended this... More

Going to the sunset cruise was the best decision we made all weekend! The views are breathtaking, the lighthouses are beautiful, and the amount of dolphins was definitely more than I thought we would see. Capt. Gator & Chris were very knowledgeable and kept the tour very entertaining. The boat ride was very smooth & they maneuvered around the shrimp... More
