Dolphin Watch: Best Beach Vacation Activity


Whether you’re planning a week-long beach vacation for the family or just escaping for a long weekend, you should make it your mission to find the best beach vacation activity. There’s always spending time along the shore, and with 60 miles of white sandy beaches that create the Grand Strand, we’re not ones to argue against a day in the sun and surf. But when you’re ready to crank up the adventure and create lasting memories, a Murrells Inlet dolphin watch tour is where you need to be.

Often mentioned as one of the best beach vacation activities for the family, couples, or singles, dolphin watches with Crazy Sister Marina offer beautiful sights and an experience you won’t soon forget. You’ll not only get to see the dolphins, but thanks to our experienced staff, you’ll also get to learn about these fascinating animals and other marine life in the area.

Best Murrells Inlet Dolphin Watch

The Crazy Sister Marina in Murrells Inlet offers a safe, comfortable dolphin watch, with daily tours at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Your entire family will ride the TURSI-OPS, a brand-new custom-built vessel. Our dolphin watch boat is custom-designed with individual seats and 360 degree viewing to give you the best opportunity to view and experience wild dolphins in a way that no other vessel can. When you take part in our interactive Murrells Inlet dolphin tour, we’ll not only introduce you to the dolphins, but we’ll help you understand how and why they do the things they do.

Our captain and crew have more than 15 years of experience finding and studying dolphins and other marine life in the Murrells Inlet area. As you take in the sights on the tour, our staff will share dolphin and sea-life facts you may not know. The Crazy Sister Marina dolphin watch is a special adventure for another exclusive reason: our team is the only local dolphin watch that has a hydrophone on board. If conditions allow, you may get to hear the dolphins vocalizing.

More Than A Dolphin Tour

In addition to the dolphins, your tour will also reveal other sea creatures native to the area. Spend some time observing sea turtles, stingrays, sharks, osprey, eagles, and herons. The area comes to life with beautiful inhabitants during each tour.

The experience of our staff extends beyond the animals you’ll see during the tour. The Murrells Inlet ecosystem is a unique landscape of plants and land animals as well. As we navigate the waters, your guide will explain the area’s natural flora and fauna, so you best understand how the various species survive in our unique environment.

The Crazy Sister Marina team is convinced you’ll have such a great time on the dolphin watch, you won’t want to get off the water. Explore the area on your own with our jet ski rentals or get even closer to nature with our 90-minute guided kayak tour. The dolphin tour family fun activities can all be enjoyed with the Crazy Sister Marina team.
