Captain Mark was great. We saw at least 50 dolphins. So beautiful and so fun! Highly recommend his private tour for great dolphin info.


My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our 90 Minute Dolphin Tour with Capt. Mark! We saw so many dolphins, tons of oyster shells that we were able to keep a few as souvenirs, and were lucky enough to see two manta rays on our way back to the dock! Capt. Mark was SO knowledgeable. We peppered him with loads of questions and he came through with flying colors! He even made a miracle catch of my granddaughter’s baseball cap that flew off when we were going full throttle!!! I highly recommend this tour! Thank you Capt. Mark for helping us create a wonderful family memory!


Captain Mark delivers - we saw two dolphins before leaving the no-wake area! I agree with all of the other reviewers - this was an excellent tour. Getting to stand on the shell-created banks left quite an impression on my 14 year old son, who was expecting a 1.5 hour lecture. Afterwards, the 14 year old asked if we were going to do this again next year. If you know teenagers, you understand that this is the highest form of praise. Thank you Captain Mark!


We had an absolutely fantastic experience on the 90-minute dolphin boat tour with Captain Mark! From start to finish, everything was perfect. Captain Mark was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and the marine life, making the tour both educational and exciting. He went out of his way to ensure we had the best possible experience. We saw numerous dolphins up close, and Captain Mark expertly navigated the boat to give us the best views without disturbing the animals. The boat was comfortable and well-maintained, and safety was clearly a top priority. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a memorable and thrilling dolphin-watching adventure. Thank you, Captain Mark, for a great day on the water!

We had a great time on the dolphin cruise with Captain Mark! We saw TONS of dolphins and was one of the highlights on our trip to Hilton Head.


We had a fantastic outing from the moment we met Capt Mark on the pier through saying good bye at the end of a great adventure. Capt Mark made sure that we saw as many dolphins as possible while telling us all about the life of a dolphin. The trip was fun and educational for our party of 5. Grand parents, mom, dad and our grandaughter. Our 9 nine year old grandaughter told us she had the 'best time ever!' Thanks Capt Mark; we'll be back with our other grandkids!


This was our first boating type of excursion for our family and we booked it solely based on reviews of Captain Mark and being it was a private tour. It was an amazing, relaxing, very informative, and beautiful morning spent on the water with Captain Mark. It exceeded our expectations and our children (ages 4, 9, and 13) loved it also. He is so friendly and fun to be with. It was a very memorable part of our trip to Hilton Head and well worth the money spent. We'd book with him again!


It was a beautiful early summer day. Our family including a 5 year old really enjoyed our time on the water. We saw dolphins and loved seeing a flock of birds diving for fish. Captain Mark pulled up a crab trap and our grandson loved seeing the crab. He was especially good with young children. We got several recommendations for other things to do on the island. We have tried two and they were marvelous. We will go again next year.


This tour exceeded every expectation. There were 6 of us - including our 2 adult children and their boyfriends. Captain Mark is a great guide - knowledgeable, polite, considerate and flexible. We saw our first dolphin before we left the dock! Mark knows exactly where to go to find the most dolphins. We were also treated to multiple ray sightings - so exciting. One of our daughters tends to get motion sickness and Captain Mark was very sensitive to that. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour!


Great trip. Got to see so many Dolphins and even some rays at the end. Capt Mark was excellent. Easy to get on the boat and off. Great that the trip started at the Marina as you were out in open water sooner
