Sunset Dolphin Tour Of Jekyll Island – Look What We Saw!

Last year Clay and the family and I took a morning Dolphin Tour courtesy of Jekyll Island Boat Tours. While there, we learned that they also do a sunset dolphin tour and couldn’t wait to get back this year to experience the boat tour at sunset. We were, very nicely, given a discount as a thank you for posting both times.

Sunset Dolphin tours begin at 7 pm and are approximately 90 minutes long. I have to say that it is amazing to head out on the boat in the daylight and watch the sun go through various stages of sunset over the water. From twilight to sunset…. it is incredible!

I have a video, below, that shows just a little of what we saw on our sunset dolphin tour. I apologize for the bounce and blur in the video and photos. The tide was turning and it was hard to hold the camera still on the waves. You could feel the waves banging beneath the boat! Even though it was a little bouncy, it was still very relaxing and the sound of the waves actually had a calming affect. Clay and I both agree that even if we never saw the first dolphin, this tour would be well worth taking. Watching the sunset, listening to the birds, and feeling the waves is enough to lull you to sleep.

Not that the tour is boring. There’s nothing boring about it. It’s just super relaxing. On this years tour, we had the honor of having Captain Pablo and Captain. Captain Pablo did most of the talking while the other captain sailed the boat, although he gave us some info later on in the tour as well. Throughout the tour, the captains give info on the various things you see along the way. Shark Tooth Beach, Driftwood beach that isn’t drift wood at all, a sunken shrimp boat that was beached at low tide, the lighthouse, water-park the marine life and more. It is a very interesting tour to take!

Seeing dolphins isn’t a guarantee but we were lucky enough, both times, to see several dolphins on our tour. We had gone out pretty far this time before we began seeing them. But once we did, they seemed to swim right around with the boat, giving us all great views from all sides. I wish y’all could have been there with us!

The highlight of our daughters time on the boat was when Captain Pablo let the kids take a turn at the wheel! She LOVED being captain for a moment.

The highlight, for me, was that incredible sunset. You can see how the light changed throughout our tour, in the collage below.

I’m not sure if we’ll get to go back to Saint Simons Island again. But, if we do, I plan on heading to Jekyll Island for a dolphin tour each time! I’d go every week if I could. It never gets old!!!

Here is a slideshow featuring photos from our sunset dolphin tour and a quick video is below that.
