Dolphins are a lot like humans. No wonder humans are so fascinated by them! We are both intelligent mammals, have nearly the same body temperature and love to play in the water. There are 32 species of dolphins known, some living in the cold oceans and some in warmer climates, like rivers in the Southeastern United States. Bottlenose dolphins are the most common dolphins in this neck of the woods and fairly easy to spy from the Atlantic coastline. Bluffton, South Carolina’s May River Dolphin Tour and Pepper’s Porch restaurant owners, Brian and Lorene, fell in love long ago with the May River and the dolphins that fascinated their three children. The tour captains are Coast Guard certified, fun, and operate right out of historic downtown Bluffton—the only operators to do so.
Experience the beauty of the lowcountry surroundings and view the wildlife found in this unique natural habitat. You’ll see blue herons perched along the river in the trees, perhaps baby dolphins, or maybe even a herd of dolphins working together to feed on fish along the bank of the river. Not many humans have seen that! Bring the kids, the tour seats 11, but takes no more than 6 on the large 24-foot, covered, comfortable pontoon boat. If you’re going to be in downtown Bluffton, make your way over to the public dock by the Church of the Cross, book a tour with May River Dolphin Tour and experience the May River’s dolphin magic close-up—and don’t forget your camera!
