The Georgia coast abounds with bottlenose dolphins, especially around Savannah and Tybee Island. Experience these playful and intelligent wild animals in their natural habitat on a Savannah dolphin watching tour!
Savannah’s coastal location provides numerous and varied opportunities to see Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. You’ll spot them from beaches, docks, and from the banks of rivers. Some of the best views, however, can only be had from the comfortable seat of a Savannah dolphin watching tour boat.
Unlike waiting to spot them from shore, dolphin watching cruises take you to where the dolphins are. Whether it’s offshore Tybee Island, the marshlands at river’s end where the Savannah River empties into the Atlantic, or somewhere in between.
Once dolphins are spotted, your tour guide may turn off the boat engine. This increases the chance for these beautiful marine mammals to come in closer to the boat, as they often will. Dolphins often appear to be as curious about us as we are of them!
Adult, Atlantic bottlenose dolphins range in length from 6 to 12 feet long and can weigh as much as 800 pounds. The animals you see on your Savannah dolphin watching tour will be hunting for fish or cruising the bottom for crustaceans. Curious or not, feeding or touching dolphins is federally prohibited, so don’t expect to get too close.
Because you’re plying the waters around Savannah’s historic waterfront, your Savannah dolphin tour will include more than dolphins. Depending on where the dolphins are during your tour, you may be treated to such iconic attractions as Savannah’s Riverstreet, the Waving Girl statue of Florence Martus, Fort Jackson, Fort Pulaski, Cockspur Island lighthouse, Tybee Island lighthouse, and more.
