Welcome aboard Tybee Island's fastest, most enjoyable boat cruise. We have over 700h.p. to get the action going. Dolphin love to play alongside our boat. Enjoy such sights as Ft. Pulaski, Cockspur and Tybee lighthouses, barrier islands and the Brown Pelican. Dolphin Guaranteed. Large restroom aboard. Coast Guard approved for up to 90 passengers on both boats.

Pretty sure you can still see them but there is no swimming with them. It's a boat ride and they take you around we're they are. And they do guarantee your trip if you do not see any they will take you out on another trip

I'm sorry, there is no whale watching. Trip Advisor places both activities into one category. However we do offer Tybee Islands number one dolphin tour.

We never saw or heard anything about whales. If you think that is a possibility I would call the business - they are great about answering all your questions.
