Dolphin Watching Tours

Cruise with us on an adventure and see Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins in their natural habitat. At Anchors Away Sailing Charters, we cannot offer assured dolphin views on each trip but do encounter them on most of our tours. We offer Hilton Head dolphin-watching tours, cruises, dolphin watches, and encounters. Our Dolphin Cruises, Wildlife Watching, and Nature Watching combine the best of Lowcountry and Barrier Island tours, wildlife tours, and eco tours in a thrilling and affordable adventure.

A Memorable Sight

Our dolphin-watching tours take you on a cruise to enjoy watching dolphins playing in their natural habitat in the Hilton Head Island waterways that include the inlets and salt marshes. You get to get up close with these intelligent creatures and learn more about their social structure, behavior, and feeding habits. Our wildlife-watching tours are perfect for the whole family.

Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins are known for their playful nature, beauty, and friendliness. Our guests are always amazed by the gracefulness of these lovely mammals. Our covered boat will provide you shade from the sun while providing the perfect vantage point for seeing the dolphins and other wildlife.

Our dolphin-watching tours will cruise down the elegant North Side of Hilton Head Island in Port Royal and around Pickney Island for our guests to watch not just dolphins, but also egrets, ospreys, manatees, sea turtles, bald eagles, herons, pelicans, and a wide range of marine life and shorebirds. Our guests always love our wildlife and nature-watching tours.

Dolphin Sightings

All our dolphin cruises and wildlife-watching tours are fully narrated by our USCG Licensed Master Captain. Get aboard our cruise and travel the beautiful waterways off the spectacular coast of South Carolina. Our captain and first mate will keep you entertained and engaged while pointing out the dolphins, other wildlife, scenic views, and landmarks.

Watch the playful dolphins while you cruise through the waterways. Our nature-watching tours are perfect for both young and old nature lovers.

You will get to experience more sights from more coastline, as our dolphin-watching tours follow a very large route in the region. Besides the dolphins, seabirds, oyster beds, saltwater marshes, yachts, South Carolina lighthouses, historical sites, homes, and more.

You will be cruising with a Captain who has logged several years' worth of sail time / powerboat time. Our Hilton Head dolphin tour is the best way to witness all the highlights of the island while getting incredible wildlife and nature sightings.

Wildlife Watching

Our wildlife-watching excursion takes place on our ‘Knot the Office’ Catalina sailing yacht or our ‘Knot On Call’ Chaparral Suncoast powerboat or ‘Seas The Moment’ our new Dufour 390 Sailing Yacht. We will explore the salt marsh estuaries while circumnavigating Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, the 4,053-acre wildlife sanctuary on our powerboat Knot On Call.
