Captain Dick was very nice and patient with our group. We got to see several pods of Dolphins and when we would spot a group he would venture near that area. It was a good day!

Fun dolphin tour----and we DID see several dolphins feeding in the bay. Learned a lot about the ecology of the bay/river. Some history also. This is a really good way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny day. Well worth the money.

Pontoon boat ride up the river. The crew was looking real hard for dolphins, unfortunately we did not see any. Good summary of the history of the town and some of the river front home. Got some great pictures of Ospreys sitting on a pole.

I'm afraid the reviewer of Nov 21 has me confused with my friend Capt. Tim Deckard of Cast Away Charters (beaufortcastawaycharter.com); we don't fish from the Prince of Tides, but offer both public and private tours of the Beaufort River.
