We've all seen those dolphins jumping in the air and splashing about in the dolphinarium, but did you know that you can head out on a boat to see them for yourself? Not only is it a lot more exciting than sitting around watching some little creatures in a pool, but it's also an intimate way of interacting with nature. The boat heads out in search of dolphins, so there are probably better places to be if you're not a trained dolphin swimmer.

You'll need to book one of the dolphin tours in Sydney (these are independent operators who use the boats owned by Harbour City Cruise), but most companies offer two-hour Tasmanian sailing excursions. Most tours depart in the morning, but if you'd prefer to see the dolphins up close at twilight, sunset and night-time excursions are available. For safety reasons, you'll also need to bring your snorkel gear. You could even go fishing while you're out there. The water is calm enough to get some underwater action, so you'll be able to see a lot of the dolphins in their natural habitat.

If you're on board one of the boats with a private garden, it's a good spot for having an early afternoon picnic. The captain can see the dolphins before anybody else, so it makes sense for them to be in charge of the tour. You can tour a few boats, though, to decide which one suits you best. Dolphins are not only intelligent, but they're also beautiful creatures. It would help if you considered taking an independent cruise to see them in their natural habitat. Also, the dolphins have been known to have a bit of fun with the boats, so it's good to see them having fun too.

Enjoy an unforgettable dolphin tour experience in the beautiful Hilton Head Island. This gorgeous place is brimming with sightseeing endeavors that are sure to delight. One of the best ways to get out and enjoy its stunning environment is on a cruise, and the Private Sunset Dolphin Tour allows you and your loved ones to get a VIP experience! 

Meet your boat at Palmetto Bay Marina where you will embark upon an unforgettable sunset journey. The boat is gorgeous and offers ample space for lounging. Feel the fresh air and the sun on your skin as you cruise through sparkling sapphire waters. Along the way, your licensed captain will give you some great details about the area and its magical ecosystem. This eco-narration is perfect for those who love animals or just want to get an overview about the wildlife that makes Hilton Head so special. 

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife. From fish and birds, you will find an array of creatures around Hilton Head Island. Of course, the star of the show is definitely the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin. Your captain is familiar with the area and the dolphins' behaviors, so he will be able to bring you to the best spots for dolphin viewing. Witness these stunning creatures in their natural habitats as they frolic in the waves made from the boat! It's a great experience that you won't be able to have anywhere else, so be sure to attend! 

Top off the evening with a dazzling sunset. As the sun begins to set over the horizon, you will be greeted by a painted sky decked out in gorgeous reds, oranges, and pinks. A Hilton Head sunset is the perfect way to end your trip! Be sure to check out other notable activities and attractions in the area, and enjoy your time in Hilton Head with a vacation package or hotel booking!
