A GREAT TIME SEEING AND LEARNING ABOUT DOLPHINS "We really enjoyed our time on the water today with Scott. We saw lots of dolphins and Scott was very informative about the dolphins behavior and also shared quite a bit of information about the islands surrounding our tour. It was great to just have our party on the boat and to be so close to the water. Highly recommend.” Leigh E (Port Royal, South Carolina)
“We had a great time on the dolphin tour! Scott was a great, laid back, guide. We saw tons of dolphins and had a wonderful time on the water.” Joshua G (Local 6 Star Guide)
“Did the 2-hr disappearing sandbar trip yesterday and had a blast! Found some great shells on the sandbar and we saw quite a few dolphins in the marshes. Captain was great about letting us stay and get pictures as they were feeding. Plenty of birds around and even saw a small shark feeding along shore. Laughed the whole way back as we bounced over the waves." Vickie M. (Los Angeles, California)
BEST TOURS IN HHI! "If there is only one adventure or boat tour you decide to do on your vacation, it should without a doubt be a tour with Commander Zodiac. Our family has been going out with them for many years and have been out 5 times in last 2 months.... it’s the one thing our entire group can agree on! The captains are amazing, no matter who you go out with.... definitely owe Cpt Scott a huge thanks for making our trips memorable. The boat ride is always exciting and informative. We have done the dolphin tour, salt marsh and vanishing island and would recommend them all!” S. Hampton
WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE "We had a great time on our excursion with Captain Todd. We saw a lot of dolphins very close up, went to the disappearing island where there was a lot of star fish and even got to see the unique amazing strand feeding by the dolphins in the marsh. The kids loved it and so did we!” Jodi (Chapel Hill, North Carolina)
