This was an absolute awesome dolphin cruise. The captain was very informative and the deck hands were beyond outstanding. My mother wanted to go and we were concerned about getting her up on boat because she is in a wheelchair. These guys got her up and were so nice. I highly recommend you take the trip

My family went on a dolphin cruise today and we loved it! I had been on a fishing trip with Voyager earlier this summer with some friends and it was great, so when we took our family vacation, my wife and kids wanted to go out on a boat while we were here.

The cruise was very relaxing and captain Brian Davis provided a nice narration of local history as we passed by little fishing towns and marinas, plus he also revealed some hidden gems along the way that we would have never discovered on our own! There were no dolphins today, but I can’t blame the captain for wild animals not showing right on cue.

The crew, Andrew and Tyler were attentive and helpful, although at one point they were busy dropping a net off the back and could not help passengers who wanted drinks. The net was all part of the cruise and people just have to wait. The crew pulled up some sea life and everyone got a chance to hold a small stingray. My 2 kids were really impressed. Andrew was great with my kids as he showed them the stingray. The captain continued in his best attempt to find dolphins but they didn’t show. We were out in the ocean for about 30-40 minutes, but it seemed longer.

One thing we liked about this boat, compared to other dolphin boats is how we could walk all around the boat during the trip, and it has an inside cabin with comfortable benches and tables to sit at. We didn’t have any trouble getting snacks or drinks.

Overall, it was a very enjoyable trip, despite not seeing dolphins, and worth the money. Captain Brian and his crew made it a trip to remember. We will definitely be back next year to do it again!

What an awesome experience. Our family did the Dolphin Cruise this morning and we all had a fantastic time. The seas were a little rough but come on its the ocean. We were lucky enough to actually get to see dolphins which were a huge bonus as no one would ever be able to guarantee that. We even got to see a small 4 ft shark swimming around BONUS. The crew and captain were nothing but friendly and knowledgeable about the area the waterway in which we traveled and I would highly recommend this as an adventure for everyone and what a wonderful picture you have the option of purchasing at the end. Thanks again for a wonderful experience. Team Fowler, Windsor, ON, Canada

We went on the dolphin boat tour a week ago and loved it! My daughter is about to turn 5 and it was her first boat ride. The crew was AMAZING and even sang Happy Birthday to our daughter! We were able to see a dolphin, baby shark, squid, and a puffer fish. The crew let our daughter touch and hold the squid and the fish. This will for sure be something we do every year when we go on vacation! Thank you for the great experience!!!

Had a great day with captain Greg. He told us all about the history of the beach on the intercoastal waterway, and out into the ocean we went seen shrimp boats and they threw out a fishing net and caught some sea life for us to look at. Great day…..Awesome

We took the Dolphin cruise and saw a few dolphin.. The crew was friendly, helpful and funny.. The captain had a good sense of humor… We also took the night fishing cruise the next night.. Caught a shark..and so did many others.. Again the crew was amazing.. They also clean the fish/shark for you.. I can’t wait to go again…

Dolphin Cruise-Myrtle Beach

Four Tips For A Myrtle Beach Dolphin Cruise

You have been looking forward to this day. You decided to embark on a dolphin cruise adventure, and you’re trying to find some ideas about where to begin. Doing a little research before you plunge into the adventure may bring some beneficial results. In this guide, you are going to learn important suggestions each person or family on a dolphin cruise Myrtle Beach should know. But before proceeding, let’s learn the main differences between a dolphin and a porpoise.

People normally use the terms porpoises, whales and dolphins in describing marine mammals that belong to the order Cetacea, and use them often interchangeably. 

However, there are some differences between them.

Dolphins are far more prevalent when compared to porpoises. Majority of scientists are in agreement there are 32 dolphin species-and 5 closely related river dolphin species-while there are only 6 porpoise species.

The harbor porpoise, for example, has small pointed flippers, and no beak. Its dorsal fin is not only small but also has a triangle shape. The difference basically comes down to their fins, their figures, and their faces. Dolphins have prominent and “elongated “beaks” plus cone-shaped teeth. The curved or hooked dorsal fin of the dolphin differs also from the triangular dorsal fin of the porpoise. Basically, dolphins have leaner bodies while porpoise bodies are portly.

To communicate with each other underwater, dolphins make whistling sounds via their blowholes, while scientists are quite certain porpoises don’t do this. Simply speaking, dolphins are more talkative than porpoises.

The wild winter weather has made it a great time to take advantage of a dolphin cruise. Below are a few tips to help you prepare for your trip.

Dolphin watch Myrtle Beach

Do Dolphins Hibernate or Migrate

Dolphin watch Myrtle BeachIt is winter here in Myrtle Beach and we spend the time getting our ocean going ready for spring. We are still going on deep sea fishing ventures, but you will have to wait until spring for the next Dolphin Watch Cruise.

You may be wondering, however, where do dolphins go in the winter?

Dolphins need to breathe just like humans, so every 30 minutes or so they need to surface and breathe. For this reason, dolphins do not hibernate under water. Also, they do not migrate as a group or family unit with a pattern that anyone can define. This does

Consider This About Dolphins

As we mentioned, they do not hibernate given they do not have an  involuntary breathing respiratory systems like other animals as well as human beings. Breathing is an intentional act they need to think about.  One interesting fact is that only half of a dolphin’s brain actually sleeps at any given time.  How do we know? Electroencephalograms conducted by scientists. For approximately eight hours a day they sleep and off (kind of like humans at work.)

Sleep Patterns of Dolphins

Dolphins need to rise to the surface to breathe through what is called a blowhole about every 30 minutes when they are in deep water. This will happen more frequently if they are in more shallow water. Sometime a dolphin will rest close to the surface of the way with their blowhole exposed or they will swim very slowly in pairs in a semi-conscious state. When this is happening, they keep one eye open and that eye is not correspond with which half of the brain is sleeping. Usually dolphins will swim in sets when sleeping and keep one eye open and focused on the other dolphins.

Migration

There is no definitive migration pattern for dolphins and they do not move to another location in large groups like other mammals. There is some evidence that some do move in the winter season, however, not a great distance like geese or other types of birds. In areas, other than Myrtle Beach, where the weather is more extreme such as the North Atlantic coast, some dolphins will migrate south to warmer waters.

A study was done in the United Kingdom where dolphins migrated to southern Cornwall and then moving north as the weather became warmer. However, scientists could did not observe a specific pattern to their migration.

As spring starts getting closer we start thinking of warm summer days and there is no better way to spend family time than taking a long dolphin watch cruise with the Voyager crew. Don’t let another summer go by without treating your family to this great adventure.

Why not go ahead and buy a gift certificate and add this to your summer schedule now.
