Dolphin Encounter

Every trip is a unique experience. Dolphins abound in the Hilton Head waters, and you'll enjoy the thrill of seeing them up close aboard Island Explorer's safe, comfortable boats.

Our experienced Captains engage, entertain and educate young and old alike.


Watching for Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin is a big part of this tour, and they nearly always abound in Broad Creek and the Calibogue Sound. Two hours gives us plenty of time to find dolphins.


Hilton Head tides create an ever-changing environment. On the High Tide the salt marsh is filled with water and the horizons are broad and deep. The scenery is magnificent. On the Low Tide the ocean recedes to reveal the complexity of life in the marsh.

Something For Everyone

Choose a cool, early morning trip. Bask in the midday sun. Or enjoy the serentity of a Hilton Head sunset. We offer cruises throughout the day.
