DOLPHIN TOURS aboard “The Holiday”

Adventure Cruises’ 80-foot, double-deck ship “The Holiday” will take you on a one hour and 45 minute narrated dolphin watch nature cruise along Broad Creek out into Calibogue Sound.

They feature 45 different points of interest, including dolphins and wading birds, the tides, salt water mashland and oyster beds, shrimp boats and fabulous yachts, Buck Island, the Statue of Liberty, and spectacular views of the Long Cove Club, Wexford Plantation, Spanish Wells, Harbour Town and Daufuskie Island.

This is all calm water cruising. “The Holiday” has indoor seating as well as open and shaded outdoor seating, a snack bar and restrooms. The boat is US Coast Guard inspected and licensed.

“The Holiday” sails daily year around except Sundays from Dock C at the Shelter Cove Harbour Marina. Their schedule is seasonal.

Fireworks Sunset Dolphin Watch Cruises are available Tuesday nights during June, July and August only.

CRABBING aboard “The Crabber J II”

Adventure Cruises also operates the “Crabber J II”. Berthed in Shelter Cove Harbour, this one hour and 45 minute cruise is great fun for the whole family. You will not only learn all about the Atlantic Blue Claw Crab, but they’ll teach you how to catch them as you glide through the salt marshes of Broad Creek. This is a great chance to see oyster beds, dolphins, and countless birds and other wildlife. If you’re lucky enough to catch the most crabs, you will win a free tee shirt. You won’t be able to keep the crabs (this is “catch and release” for fun), but you can keep the shirt!

Sport crabbing aboard the “Crabber J II” is available daily except Sunday from April through September only.
