What you can expect

Make fantastic memories of Hilton Head during a dolphin-spotting cruise on the Atlantic. Your captain explains the history of the beautiful area as you traverse local waterways to the ocean, where you can snap photos of playful Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and local seabirds.

Step aboard the Vagabond, a comfortable sightseeing vessel with 2 decks for fantastic ocean views. Your captain narrates the journey as you set off through the Calibogue Sound, passing the resort-like Harbour Town and South Beach on the way. Catch sight of the Tybee Island Lighthouse, first lit in 1867, as well as the 1837 Haig Point Lighthouse and modern Harbour Town Lighthouse, built in 1969.

Throughout your cruise, keep an eye out for seabirds like egrets, herons, and pelicans sitting atop the water. Once you reach the Atlantic, your captain helps you find pods of lively Atlantic bottlenose dolphins that frequent the area. Spend time snapping pictures of the intelligent creatures as they breach the surface and leap into the air, and then return to port with a new and unforgettable experience.
