from Sea Screamer- Myrtle Beach Dolphin Cruises
Come join us on the best dolphin tour in Myrtle Beach. The Sea Screamer is a 65 foot 1993 Navigator tour boat powered by turbocharged Detroit Diesels, totaling 1500 horsepower. The Sea Screamer holds approximately 141 passengers. Everyone is able to sit and when the Captain gives the okay you are able to walk around. There is a canopy over several rows of seats on both of our boats. The boat locations are only 3 miles apart.

Cruises are 1½ to 2 hours long. The tour encompasses 3 distinct experiences starting with a narrated cruise up the Intracoastal waterway. Then picking up speed and passing several uninhabited islands as well as the jetty heading out into the ocean. The second part of the tour is heading into the ocean to find and view the dolphins and the third part is picking up speed to view our beautiful coastline.

This is a wet ride so dress accordingly. There is a dry box on board for valuables. We do suggest a bag or case to keep cameras and phones dry so you may take pictures. Sun glasses and sunscreen are also recommended for this tour.

If you want SEATING UNDER THE CANOPY please arrive early because boarding is done by group #. Group #1 will board first and will include several parties who arrive the earliest. Check in is inside the Captain Juel’s Hurricane Restaurant and is 45 to 30 minutes before boat departs.

All passengers must check in and get a boarding pass before boarding. The boat departs promptly at scheduled times so please allow time to park, check-in, etc. PARKING is half way down Mineola Ave on the left hand side. Look for the Sea Screamer parking sign. Walk towards the waterfront to the Captain Jules Hurricane Restaurant and enter the Restaurant for check-in.

My Family loved the dolphin tour. The only thing is they require to be 45 mins early and it takes a while to load the boat. They need a better game plan on loading the boat.

My husband and I absolutely love this tour. I loved it so much two years ago that I requested to go again today. The captain does his very best to ensure that you see dolphins. If there is a shrimp boat near by, then you will most certainly see dolphins. The speed boat was a good time in and of itself. No complaints here. You get a little wet but we were dry by the end of the tour. Give it a try. You’ll love it. I’d say it is appropriate for ages 3+ and I can’t wait to do it again. Get there 30 min to an hour early and go inside of the restaurant (Capt. Juel’s) to get your boarding slip. They accept cash for tips but they are not push about it!

This was our second tour. The first one was on the Thunder. This one was on the Sea Screamer. This was a free trip from last year because we did not see any dolphin. We are ages 44, 26, 16,14, 13, and 11This year we saw dolphin. It was an amazing sight. It was at least 8. Four were jumping together. We booked a second tour before we came down because rather you see dolphin or not the tour itself is fun. Molly is always helpful. She will take pics for your family and help whenever she can. Bring money for tips. You also have an option to purchase a family photo for $20. It is well worth it. The boat itself was clean and fast. The captain is funny and personable. Even the gentlemen at the ticket booth is pleasant. I like the seats on the Thunder better but I am old. The kids thought the seats were fine. We cannot wait to go out again Thursday. Best advice bring a towel and a light jacket.

What an exhilarating experience. Running up and down the ocean at high speed and then moving on to the Shrimp boat where we encountered Dolphins feeding off the cast away from the boat. What a treat!

"Didn’t See Any Dolphins and Still A Great Time!"

Unfortunately we booked our tour for a gloomy rainy day and they canceled, allowing us to reschedule. The next time we were supposed to go was also gloomy but they still continued the sightseeing tour. We arrived and although the place is a little rundown and you meet inside a bar haha we were welcomed and had a great time. Upon boarding, our captain said we were almost guaranteed not to see dolphins. We had the option to go out anyway and enjoy the rainy boat ride or get a refund. We were told we would definitely be soaked and most likely see no dolphins. As it was one of the last few days of our trip, we decided to take the boat ride as we were prepared to be wet and were going to be wet if we decided to go back to the beach on such a rainy day. We went out onto the water and had a fun time! Was cool to see the boat go so fast, feel the choppy waves and be informed about the waterway by our captain. No dolphins were seen but it was still a memorable trip. The best part? They have a no dolphin policy where if you don’t end up seeing any, you get a free card to come back again....that never expires! We will definitely be returning next year when we come to the beach! Definitely recommend!

We went out on the Sea Screamer and did not see any dolphins. 😕 However, we had a blast the captain and first mate were awesome! We are going back before we leave to try again to see some dolphins. I did take Dramamine just in case I got sick to my stomach.
