I’ll admit it. I was already partial to Captain Mike’s Dolphin Adventure, out on Tybee Island, because I like anything featuring my own name. Mike & Ike’s? Love them. Delicious. Michael Jackson? The greatest ever. Mike the Headless Chicken? Come on! Mikes rule.
So it was no surprise to discover that Captain Mike’s Dolphin Adventure was totally awesome. On our hour-long journey into the ocean, we saw probably over 100 dolphins. Seriously. They were likely the same dolphins over and over again, but well over 100 “sightings”. Jumping dolphins, playful dolphins, double & triple dolphins. One dolphin swam right alongside our boat, and I swear he was looking at me. I named him “Mike”.
The woman leading us out was great, too. While she was sharing fun dolphin facts, she’d keep yelling out where to look next. “Did you know that — 3-O’CLOCK! — dolphins sleep with one side of their brain — TWO JUMPIN, 11-O’CLOCK! — active at a time?” I don’t know how she spotted them so quickly, but her eyes were always at least a couple seconds ahead of mine.
We had an amazing time. Check out the videos and pictures we were able to capture… Dolphins are so freaking cute. And at just $15 per adult, the tour is a great deal.
