Dolphin searching at Tybee and finding so much more!


My daughter and I went on the best dolphin tour I could ever imagine. Captain Mikes Dolphin Tours is located at the Lazaretto Creek Marina just minutes from  Tybee beach. The tour rate was a steal at just $15 and lasts about an hour to an hour and a half. We got there just in time to catch the next tour with very few people on board. This was not just a look out for dolphin tour. It was a very educational trip as the guide gave us neat information while we were going past Fort Pulaski, Cockspur Lighthouse, and Tybee Light Station. We were lucky enough to see several dolphins including a calf! We also watched flocks of birds follow a shrimp boat hoping for some catch of the day morsels.

The docks also gave us some photo ops with contrasting colors on the decks and boats. The trip was so beautiful as we sailed past marshes, hammocks, and the little fishing village. Afterwards, we ate a fantastic lunch at Coco’s Sunset Grille right by the water next to the tour docks. We initially drove to the marina looking to go kayaking, which there were plenty to rent, but the water was a bit rough and stumbling on this dolphin tour was just an awesome blessing! Another “must do”!

Coco's Sunset Grill is located on Lazaretto Creek  a stones throw from Captain Mikes Dolphin tours. You can watch shrimp boats come in off the patio and sunsets over the river. The seafood is fresh off the boat and the food is fabulous!  Inside is colorfully decorated  and Coco the monkey is the main star. Read more about this charming restaurant by clicking on the link. I rate this a 10!
