Scout 222 Sportfish Deep V

This 222 is an all around performer with the capabilities of a much larger boat.

She is a serious fishing boat that is also adept at taking the whole family out for a day on the water. Scout hull designs are known for their sea keeping abilities, and she will keep you comfortable and dry in rough weather. Her 100 gal tank gives you incredible range. She can do everything you ask of her from zipping out to your favorite fishing spot, to towing a water-skier, all in the manageable and economical package of a 22ft boat.

Age 45
18 years on the Island

Never far from the water, Captain Dick was born in California, raised in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes,” and has spent the last 18 years enhancing Hilton Head Island, with his variety of talents and interests.  A motivated, optimistic humanitarian, Captain Dick is a true builder at heart.  He derives satisfaction and fulfillment in helping all he encounters, to create delightful and exciting memories.

A motivated, optimistic humanitarian, Captain Dick has always derived satisfaction and fulfillment in helping all he encounters, to create delightful and exciting memories.

Fascinated by the ocean and it’s inhabitants, Captain Dick is inspired by the charming mystique and playful nature of dolphins.  Similarly, to his journey as a father, dolphins awaken his senses to embrace presence in the moment.  As a representative of the mysterious depths of planet Earth’s oceanic universe, these blissful, adventurous sea creatures are an enchanted reminder for him, to have appreciation for the present and passage of time.  Each precious moment, with dolphins, reveals how time has a way of traveling backwards, from present to past and future to present, in the blink of an eye.

Both professionally and personally, Captain Dick’s positive influence has been seen and felt on the island since 2003.  Beginning with homebuilding/construction, to fostering fun and entertainment through restaurant management.  Presently, Captain Dick remains active in developing and maintaining peaceful and supportive home environments, not only for his own family, but also through his two Visiting Angels Home Care franchises, which have served the Lowcountry, under his ownership, for nearly the past decade.

In his free time, Captain Dick enjoys being outdoors, Father-son French toast and bacon Sundays.  His favorite day of the year is Halloween.

      Captain Brody

      Age 36
      22 years on the water

      At 14yrs old I started SCUBA diving and found a love for the water.

      Little did I know how much that would directly affect my life.

      At 18 I started off working in kitchens and racing Soling sailboats on Wednesday nights and weekends in Lake Michigan. After seven years in Wisconsin my culinary career brought me to South Carolina where I continue to cook, fish and boat as often as possible.

      In the past year I’ve decided I want to spend my time sharing my knowledge and love for the ocean with all.

      Today I went out on the water with captain Brody with Hilton head dolphin tours, I cannot explain to you what an amazing time I had. We got out on the water perfectly on time, went to the sandbar, played music the entire time, then headed to Daufuskie to round out the day! Captain Brody found us dolphins multiple times and was a wealth of information about the water and what’s in it. He even has misters for a hot day! I 100% will be doing this again and so should you!

      Captain Brody took us out on a wonderful sunset tour. We had 4 adults and 2 kids. We saw a ton of dolphins 🐬. My husband said the only thing better would have been if a dolphin hopped on board and gave him a kiss 😂. But seriously he was knowledgeable and we had a great time. He spent extra time with us until the sun had completely set. Would highly reccomend and plan to make it a tradition each year.

      We did the booze cruise as a bachelorette party and I can’t even explain how much you need to book this!!!!!(Yes all the !s are needed) We had SO MUCH FUN! Capt Brody was awesome and took us all over Hilton Head. We connected to the boats Bluetooth and played jams the whole trip, went to the sand bar and hung out, and even got to see multiple dolphins! MAJOR BONUS- this boat is also used for dolphin tours so Capt Brody knew where to take us to see dolphins and they come close to the boat! 👏🏼BOOK 👏🏼THE 👏🏼TRIP! 👏🏼

      We had a great time on our dolphin tour. Captain Brody was great. Very informative and friendly and easy going. He even let us go longer than our 2 hours as we were watching a bunch of dolphins playing. Highly recommend their dolphin tour and would use them again. Thanks Captain Brody!

      Having spent almost a decade on the Island, I have never seen or even heard of a Dolphin Experience like we had! It exceeded our wildest expectations. Perhaps once in a lifetime but so well worth it!

      Awesome time! Me and my girlfriend took the 2 hour dolphin tour! Captain Brodie was a AWESOME host! The boat will seat 6 people, but it was just the two of us! Amazing time on the water, and we saw multiple dolphins and even a baby hammerhead shark! Well worth the money! Brodie is full of information! Be kind and tip if you go! Next time we come back, I will be in touch with captain Brodie!

      We had the best time with Captain Brody! We are four girlfriends who booked a sunset cruise, and we were not expecting such a fun Captain, great music, dolphins, and the wealth of knowledge he had about the area. He came as a recommendation to us, and we plan to use him for every visit going forward!

      Wow. What a great time. Captain Brody was great. Very knowledgeable about dolphins, their behaviors, and the best areas to spot them. We were not disappointed. We spent more than 30 min in one area because they were all around us. Thank you Captain Brody for a wonderful and memorable afternoon.

      First time visiting Hilton Head and Captain Brody made it so amazing that we already want to go back! Right from booking the trip with him, he kept us updated with everything from what we need to what might happen if bad weather comes through. So many compliments to the Capt and Hilton Head Dolphin Tours, definitely be booking with you guys again.

      This boat trip was the highlight of our vacation! Captain Brody was the best tour guide we have ever had! He made sure we saw dolphins. We ended up in a pod and they were playing. If we hadn’t saw dolphins, the time on the water was awesome! This tour will be the first thing I book next time we are in Hilton Head!

      Vanishing island tour was such a good time. If you're looking for a relaxing, hidden sandbar experience, this is it! We were able to take the dogs (PET FRIENDLY! ). Hidden away from the crowd, this place was so nice. Very enjoyable. Would suggest for anyone looking for a relaxing time out on the water!
