In Savannah you’ll find all types of sightseeing tours. Being a city near the ocean, one type of tour you can find in addition to the traditional trolley tours and guided walks is a dolphin tour. Dolphins are one of the most interesting of all animals and a boat tour is a popular way to spend some time in the ocean just off Tybee Island, Georgia looking for these amazing creatures. Sure, it’s possible to spot them if you are sunbathing on the beach, but its more likely you will get a closer look if you go on a dolphin sightseeing tour. Dolphin watching is a favorite of almost everyone. If you have ever been fascinated with dolphins, then consider the highly rated Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tours on Tybee Island. Captain Mike’s Tours is based at the Lazeretto Creek Marina and has been showing the residents of Tybee Island, Savannah and everyone who visits our area the dolphins for more than twenty years.
Getting to Tybee Island
It’s about a 20 - 25 minute drive from downtown Savannah to Tybee — one of the barrier islands along the Georgia coast. Tybee Island is where you go to sunbath, splash in the ocean, take photographs on the Pavilion or take a walk along the beach. Captain Mike’s Tours give you a chance to see Tybee from the ocean, see lots of dolphins, shrimp boats, and get a view of the Tybee Island Lighthouse and the Cockspur Island Lighthouse. Dolphin tours depart daily and run about ninety minutes.
For ten years running, readers of The Tybee Breeze have voted Captain Mike’s Dolphin Tours as the best adventure tour in the area. Every day Dolphin Tours depart on the way to showing you the bottle-nosed dolphins that populate the waters off the Georgia coast. The dolphins are friendly to humans and will sometimes come closer to the boat.
Other Boat Tours
Other than dolphin cruises, Captain Mike’s also offers Sunset Cruise Tours during the warmer months of the year from May through September. As a member of the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace Circle of Friends, the company also is a big supporter of the Girl Scouts of the USA and offers Girl Scout Troup tours.
Whether you come with a friend, your entire family or on a special group tour -- enjoyment and relaxation are going to be what you find out on the water with the dolphins and the friendly staff of Captain Mike's Dolphin Tours.
