Information about dolphins in the Lowcountry.
You don't even have to take a boat ride to see some dolphins around Hilton Head Island. You'll often see dolphins swimming along the beachfront, especially toward the south end of the island and in Calibogue Sound along South Beach.
Dolphins can sometimes be seen from the end of the pier in Harbour Town and from the public boat landing under the Cross Island Parkway Bridge near Palmetto Bay Marina.
Seeing dolphins from land usually means just a quick glimpse as they pass by. You'll always get a better experience by taking a boat tour with an experienced guide.
