Come join us on the best dolphin tour in Myrtle Beach. The Sea Thunder is a 65 foot 1997 Aqua Bay Marine tour boat powered by turbocharged Cat Diesels, totaling 2100 horsepower. The Sea Thunder holds approximately 141 passengers. Everyone is able to sit and when the Captain gives the okay you are able to walk around. There is a canopy over several rows of seats on both of our boats. The boat locations are only 3 miles apart.
Cruises are 1½ to 2 hours long. The tour encompasses 3 distinct experiences starting with a narrated cruise up the Intracoastal waterway. Then picking up speed and passing several uninhabited islands as well as the jetty heading out into the ocean. The second part of the tour is heading into the ocean to find and view the dolphins and the third part is picking up speed to view our beautiful coastline.
This is a wet ride so dress accordingly. There is a dry box on board for your valuables. We do suggest a bag or case to keep cameras and phones dry so that you may take pictures. Sun glasses and sunscreen are also highly recommended for this tour.
