Full description

Discover the wonders of Hilton Head Island on a guided cruise. Spot resident bottlenose dolphins playing in the water and learn about the landmarks you pass, including the Harbour Town Lighthouse. Enjoy a memorable sunset and fireworks show.

Once you've met your group at the meeting point, travel first around the Hilton Head coast and take in stunning views of the shoreline. Look out for resident Atlantic bottlenose dolphins as they play, feed, and swim around the boat.

Along the way, pass by the iconic Harbour Town Lighthouse, an impressive, 90-foot (27.4-meter) tall beacon renowned for its candy-striped exterior. Learn about the rich history and diverse ecosystem of the island from your guides as you soak in the scenic views and sail past landmarks.

Later, sit back and relax as the sun begins to set, painting the water’s surface in a vibrant array of hues. Find out why Hilton Head has been named one of the best destinations for sunset viewing along the East Coast of the United States.

After the sun has fully sunk below the horizon, round off your trip with Hilton Head’s weekly fireworks show.

Was disappointed, I understand that they cannot guarantee dolphin sightings but the only ones we saw where way off in the distance. Also, I had assumed that we would be able to observe the fireworks from a much closer distance. We watched the fireworks from at least a mile away.

It was an awesome adventure with many bonuses in thus beautiful area. Especially with a full moon in the evening. The two best bonuses were Captain Jack & Dawn. They kept us informed, entertained and very safe. Highly recommended!
