Match: Dolphin & Whale Watching
Absolutely Amazing!!!!! Captain Zach was very friendly and knowledgeable (very skillful navigating the waters) :) We saw lots of dolphins on our tour and other local wildlife.
Captain Rich took us on the dolphin watch and sunset cruise and maintained a great balance of providing information about the island and the natural surroundings vs. tracking dolphins wherever we saw them (often).

If you want a great experience with dolphins and a great paddle in a kayak with a knowledgeable guide, take the Kayak Hilton Head tour on Broad Creek during high or low tide.
