Hey y’all! My name is Monika and I’ve lived on Hilton Head over 10 years now! After a short career in Nursing, I realized my true passion was being on the water and what I love more than anything is our Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins! I’ll take you on the water with a licensed Captain for this amazing Dolphin & Donuts tour where we'll take in the beautiful sights, have up close dolphin sightings, and snack away! I hope you grow to love Hilton Head Island just as much as I do. See you soon!

We had such a fun time! Our host was knowledgeable and personable. He went out of his way to make sure that we spotted dolphins and we did- several of them! We also trailed behind a shrimp boat and witnessed birds and dolphins hunting for food falling off of the net. What a sight! The tour also included a glimpse of Harbour Town and Dafuskie Island. The donuts they provided were a yummy treat.

The experience was nice. The Dolphins made us work a little bit that day but the crew was diligent to find them. The tour group was accommodating and informative.

The most amazing decision you can make for a dolphin cruise. They swim right up to the boat which you do not experience in the more fancy boats like the vagabond

Sara was an awesome captain with great stories and legends. She made sure we had ample dolphin sightings. Great trip for the value!!
