When you buy your live event tickets on LivingSocial, your seats are guaranteed to be next to each other.


This is your private boat taking you on an intimate tour to see dolphins in the wild, up close and personal! Just your group (up to 6 passengers) cruising the waters, watching dolphins eating, playing, and socializing. As a Low Country Master Naturalist, your Captain will provide an in-depth narration of the ecology around you detailing what makes Hilton Head so unique.

You’ll get all the time you need to see these beautiful creatures as they spend their days cruising the Calibogue Sound. See Hilton Head’s storied landmark, the Harbourtown Lighthouse from the water. Cross over to the other side of the Sound and see Daufuskie Island.

While on the Sound you’ll have a chance to glimpse other creatures that call the low country home; mobula rays jumping out of the water, spinner sharks breaching the surface, sea turtles coming up for a breath of air. Hundreds of species of birds that make their way through their migratory periods. This trip is a wonderland of wildlife to behold.

My family had a wonderful experience with Captain Mark’s Dolphin Tour! Our girls, ages 2 and 6, had so much fun (as did my husband and I). Captain Mark was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. He was engaging with our kids, and super patient with our 6-year-old’s nonstop questions :) We saw many dolphins, had a fun ride on the boat (the kids loved that we got to “go fast”), and enjoyed the views of the island along with Captain Mark’s informative commentary. A great experience and some great family memories made. Highly recommend Captain Mark and the Cross Island private dolphin tour! We hope to come back to do it again one day!

We took a 90 minute boat tour with Mark today. He was fantastic! Very flexible, great communication and very knowledgeable about the area and ecosystem. We learned a lot. We saw over 15 dolphins. Mark even let us stop at the shelf of shells so we could pick a few out. Great time!

10/10 experience. We absolutely loved Captain Mark!! He was super knowledgeable about the area, gives great recommendations, and had really great energy. We got to see so many dolphins and lots of different bird species. He even covered the seats with towels before we got there so they wouldn’t be too hot to sit on. This experience was absolutely worth every penny and I will gladly be doing this again!
