Our Boats

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.

Captain Dick

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.

      This tour was the highlight of our trip to Hilton Head. A great way to spend the morning. We saw so many dolphins. Captain Brody was the best! He even recommended some local places to eat 🙂

      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!

      We had the best time and saw so many dolphins! At the end of the ride one was right next to the boat following us. It was an amazing experience and I look forward to doing it again!

      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. (Gina Davis is my alias. 😜) 530p on 8/10/20 for the 1 1/2 hour tour.

      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!

      Went on a crabbing adventure unfortunately the crabs were not cooperating that day but the captain had his own traps out so we got to see some blue crabs still.

      Captain Brody was a perfect 10! He was very knowledgeable with dolphins and educated our kids on all the wildlife to be seen! His boat was clean and relaxing! Perfect for the 6 of us! We hope to make this a yearly adventure with him! 🐬

      Tried to schedule the fireworks tour but they don't start until mid June so we did the vanishing island instead. Bring sunscreen and a towel! It was really fun having the tide come in, you actually get to see the island vanish. Thanks Hilton Head Dolphin Tours.

      Husband and I were down from Ohio and just wanted time on the water. We scheduled a dolphin tour but really just wanted to see the sights. Captain Brody was happy to oblige. When it got too warm we hopped in the water quickly. Thanks captain!

      Went on the historic Savannah cruise and saw one of the world's largest container ships nor us or the captain knew it was coming in that day. It ended up being a big deal. Savannah was nice way to spend an hour the Candy shop was delicious.

      We went with Hilton Head Dolphin Tours for a sunset cruise we asked if we could bring adult beverages they had no issues with that. The tour was 2 hours we saw the sun set with the light house in the background. The sky was amazing. Hilton head dolphin tours knows where to go!

      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!

      My daughter scheduled a dolphin tour she found on google called Hilton head dolphin tours I was not expecting too much, I was pleasantly surprised. Capitan Brody was very easy going. We ended up extending our time on the water to eat at Hudsons. We saw lots of dolphins and really enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely recommend them.
