There’s nothing like a Savannah dolphin tour for getting you out into nature. The opportunity to see Atlantic bottlenose dolphin up close and personal just makes it that much more exciting!
Adult, Atlantic bottlenose dolphins extremely common all along Georgia’s coast. They can get up to 12 feet long and weigh as much as 800 pounds! It’s easy to find them while you’re here. They can be spotted from beaches, docks, and even seen cruising up local rivers.
Spotting dolphins from shore is catch as catch can – you never know when or even if they’ll show up. Savannah dolphin tour operators know the local dolphin’s habits, though, and will take you to where they are. Usually, this means out to where the animals are hunting and feeding. You’ll get a thrill seeing them in water, frolicking and playing together as they hunt. They may even come over to inspect the boat!
Don’t expect the boat to chase or lure the dolphins in, however. These animals are federally protected. Touching, chasing, feeding, or otherwise interfering with wild dolphins is against the law, so don’t expect to get too close.
It’s not all just dolphins either. Don’t forget where you are! Your Savannah dolphin tour will also undoubtedly treat you to views of Riverstreet, the Waving Girl statue of Florence Martus, Fort Jackson, Fort Pulaski, Cockspur Island lighthouse, Tybee Island lighthouse, and more.
