While you’re out on the water, your guides will point out landmarks like the Cockspur Island Lighthouse and tell you about some local history and points of interest as well. You may even be fortunate enough to see some of the huge cargo container ships that enter the Savannah River at the northern tip of Tybee Island, headed for the port just upriver from downtown Savannah.
A tour with Captain Mike’s is the perfect excursion any time of year, but May through September sees sunset cruises available to watch the sun turn the marshes orange before it disappears behind the waving grass. November through February, you can book a historic adventure tour featuring the history of Fort Pulaski National Monument, Old Fort Jackson, the Tybee Island Light Station and the Cockspur Island Lighthouse as well as education on native wildlife. With so many different excursion opportunities, you could tour with Captain Mike on each visit to Tybee and never take the same tour twice!
Captain Mike’s Dolphin Adventure also offers special packages for Girl Scout troops and other groups like wedding parties or bachelor/bachelorette gatherings. Your crew will always be friendly and informative, as well as knowledgeable about where you might find the most dolphin activity. We can see why so many flock to this unique Tybee Island experience where visitors can see some of the most adorable sea mammals around.
