Myrtle Beach Dolphin Cruises

Myrtle Beach Dolphin Cruises offers dolphin-sighting excursions on two different boats from the North Myrtle Beach area. The Sea Screamer and Sea Thunder take participants from the Intracoastal Waterway through the jetty to the ocean for a fun-filled dolphin tour.  A narrated cruise up the Intracoastal Waterway begins the 2-hour excursion, and the boat picks up speed as it passes several uninhabited islands and the jetty on the way to the ocean. Visitors will see dolphins on the tour and get a breathtaking view of the coastline. Dolphin sighting is guaranteed, or you can take another tour for free.
