You can frequently see dolphins while just walking the beach or from your balcony if you're oceanfront. Early morning and dusk are usually the best times, but they may also move within sight of shore, usually to feed, at almost any time. It's definitely not an everyday thing, but you may get lucky.

There are also a number of dolphin tours that greatly improve your chances, since the captains keep track of where most of the pods are feeding. Just one example is Blue Wave, out of Murrells Inlet: http://www.bluewaveadventures.com/ There are also numerous other ones offering similar boat tours.

We were there last month for a week and we saw them 2 days from the beach. They were out for about 20 minutes maybe 4 or 5 of them. We were on the northern side of MB

The dolphins don't migrate in the manner of whales or birds. They move around, looking for the best food and most comfortable water temps. They are pretty much around the low country all year round ... sort of like humans.

We were swimming in front of the Sea Watch on July 11th and we saw three or four of them jumping out of the water maybe a 50 or 75 yards away.
