I Took A Tybee Island Dolphin Tour And This Is What Happened
As a Savannah native, it’s pretty pathetic that I’ve never taken a dolphin tour before. So when I was given the chance to accompany our videographer on Captain Derek’s Dolphin Adventure Tour, I jumped at the chance.
Tybee Island is known for its quirky, vibrant atmosphere, so I was excited to get the authentic Tybee Island experience.
This is Captain Chris. He made commentary during the tour, telling us all we wanted to know about dolphins, pointing out landmarks and recounting stories of Tybee Island locals.
I called ahead and asked if food and beverages were allowed on the boat (they are) and, since it seemed like the ~vacation-y~ thing to do, I packed personal bottles of bubbly for the tour.
We had to go super slow in the no-wake zone at first, which I barely noticed because we were passing such cool sights…
…like the Cockspur Lighthouse:
…and celebrity houses:
…and Tybee Island’s historic North Beach:
I half expected the big boat to be crowded, but Captain Derek likes to keep his tours intimate.
Which was great when it came time to spot dolphins.
And there were PLENTY of dolphins to see. No wonder Captain Derek has a “Dolphin Guarantee”!
I’m not the only one who had a total blast, either. Look at these happy people!
