    This trip was a amazing! I planned it as a surprise for my wife and I on our 10 year anniversary, we both had a blast, the dolphins came right up to the boat and there was plenty of them the whole trip. Our guide was awesome as well. Lunch was delicious, we ate at the crab shack and the food was very good, it was hot inside with no ac but we'll worth the heat and the wait. The lighthouse was beautiful and lots of wind at the top which was nice as the 178 steps up was very hot, but worth it to see the views and feel the wind at at top.. The entire tour was above our expectations and I would definitely definitely definitely recommend this tour to anyone in the savanna area looking for a great day adventure

    Loved seeing the dolphins. Captain Eric was awesome. Was not comfortable with the amount of people on the boat considering COVID. The bus ride over to dolphin boat ride was also packed. Only 3 people were masked out of 37. The bus driver was funny and informative. I do feel Kelly tours could have advised it would be a full bus as I would have chosen not to ride.

    This is more than just a dolphin tour! It starts as soon as you board the bus with info as the tour guide drives through downtown Savannah. Get an awesome meal at the Crab Shack. Then it's the wonderful dolphin tour with great guides. Next, you go to Tybee Island Beach where you can go look at the lighthouse, grab a snack, hut the beach, or all of the above! Great package deal!
