Captain Mike's Dolphin Tours
Come aboard Capt. Mike’s Dolphin Tours and watch the bottle-nosed dolphin playing in their natural habitat. These fun loving, aquatic mammals are the most intelligent of creatures next to man and are unusually friendly. They frequently come right up by the boat.
The tour departs daily from Lazaretto Creek Marina, heading toward the Atlantic ocean, passing by shrimp boats and boat docks that portray the charm of an old fishing village. The boat passes by the Cockspur lighthouse (built in 1856), offering a view of historic Fort Pulaski. Approaching the North Beach of Tybee, the tour provides a scenic view of the Tybee Lighthouse.
View an abundance of nature as you are traveling: hammocks, beaches and marshes; wildlife from sea turtles to birds in addition to our friendly bottle-nosed dolphin. The dolphin/sightseeing tour is often described by visitors as the high point of their trip to the coastal area.
The tour will last approximately one hour. One hour and 15 minutes for the sunset tours.
Tour rates are $15.00 for adults, $8.00 for children (3 to 12), and $1 for infants (2 and under) plus tax. Reservations Recommended.
In compliance with federal regulations, there is to be no feeding or touching the dolphins at any time.
Sunset Cruises - Available May through September
For a delightful excursion, indulge yourself in the soothing and relaxing affair of a Tybee Island sunset from the unique vantage point of the water. Watch the sun set fire to the sky as the water glides past the boat. Bring a perfect end to your day by watching the sun’s magnificent reflection on the water as it slowly sinks beyond the horizon. Along with the beauty of a summer Georgia sunset, you will have an experience of which memories are made. Prices for the sunset cruise are $18.00 for adults, $11.00 for children and $1 for infants (2 and under). Advance reservations are required.
