A Great Time

We went on "Spirit Of Harbourtown" for a day in Savannah.. The captain and crew did an amazing job and were having a great time along with everyone else. I would definitely recommend this cruise as it's a fun way to visit Savannah while you're in Hilton Head..

Nice Experience

Went on a dolphin watch and it was a really nice experience for us and our almost 4 year old. The staff was very professional, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Was such a nice scenic relaxing ride in between the excitement of seeing the dolphins.

Awesome Evening

Had an awesome evening with Vaptain Justin and all of the crew. Saw a pod of dolphins and an amazing sunset and a great storm brewing. Lovely bunch of men who took great care of us. Will do this again when we comeback. Thank you Vagabond❤️
