Owner description: Go to the website. Captain Harvey Ferrelle offers excellent boat tours around Tybee Island and I would like to write a review regarding the same. I cannot find a street address. He meets you at the marina where he keeps his boat on the very small Tybee Island.

“Another AMAZING trip with Captian Harvey!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

As our family (mom, dad, 9 year old boy & 7 year old boy) was planning our 2013 trip to Tybee Island a boat ride with Captain Harvey was a MUST for all of us! Just as our trip in 2011, this trip was amazing! Captain Harvey is a true Tybee local who is so knowledgeable of the area- we learned so much from him! From dolphins to tides to lighthouse restoration efforts, Captain Harvey patiently explains it all. We love that his boat accommodates only 6 passengers which allows a private tour for our family. The boat is clean and this cautious mommy always feels her family is safe with Captain Harvey. Captain Harvey's boat tour will be on our Tybee Island agenda EVERY time we visit the island.

“Book Early”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

I booked this as a surpise for our two girls and husband so they could see dolphins and to something different on our vacation.It was a wonderful surprise for all of us .Captain Harvey gave all of us a history and eco lesson so good our kids didn't realize what he was doing, he kept them involved from the start. The dolphins came right to the boat,and he knew just where to take us for shell hunting . We all hated to see it end, we had such a good time. Book early !! Don't miss this .

“Hidden gem. Personal tour, with a wonderful & knowledgable Captain!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2013

flyer many trips to Tybee and tours on other boats we opted to try to find a tour that would show us something new and different. Captain Harvey did not disappoint. From the first phone call we knew we had found what we wanted. What we got was a personalized tour from a true CAptain and gentleman. Captain Harvey was concerned about the weather ( as we were), as there had been scattered thunder storms in the area. So we decided to go out earlier to beat the rain. We headed out into the back bay toward Little Tybee. We saw many dolphins. Saw a couple up close as they approached the boat to check us out. We also had th opportunity to see several smal black tipped sharks. we also saw countless herons, egrets, and other shore birds as we toured the back waterways between Tybee and the main land.
We also learned a lot from captain Harvey about little Tybee, the Eco system, the Cockspur Light House and the wild life.
I would highly recommend Captain Harvey to anyone interested in seeing the beautiful back waters of Tybee.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

I toured with Cptn. Harvey about 4 years ago and just recently took my husband with me for a second tour. Harvey is like family! He told us all about the history and the beautiful nature. We saw wild dolphins and several types of birds. I highly recommend this tour!

“A delightful morning trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2012

My daughter booked us a 2/3 hour cruise with Captain Harvey the Saturday after Thanksgiving. We wanted to see the backwaters of Tybee. Captain Harvey gave us a wonderful experience. We learned so much about the Eco system of this area and tidbits of history.....both way past and recent! His presentation of information was done in a relaxing, conversational way making us feel like we were out for the morning with a friend. We would certainly recommend his tours to anyone.
