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.

if you dont mind being on a big boat it was good time. If you want to get soak and be out in the heat be in the front. If not seat under the cover. If you want to be first in line make sure your standing next to the brick wall. Not the most friendly staff until they get on the boat. Only saw 1 dolphin not their fault. they tried.

We went in October, the weather was about 78 degrees. If you set upfront you will get soaked. And then you freeze the whole ride. The boat is big and we still had a full boat even though it's the off season. Too many people for my liking. We rode down to a shrimp boat (which I thought was cheating) and the birds were awful, my husband and I were so scared one would crap on us. Two woman got sick bc we were just rocking back and forth waiting for the dolphins to follow the shrimp boat. Next time I will try to find a smaller tour. However the first mate (I forgot her name) was awesome! She was a school teacher and just does this in her spare time. I made sure to leave her a great trip however I noticed not very many people at all were tipping. Very rude, please come prepared when you do any activity.

Thank you so much to Sea Screamer for giving my family an awesome dolphin tour that the kids will never forget. We came last year and there were no dolphins (right after hurricane Florence). We were given tickets to come again another time. Unfortunately before we returned to Myrtle Beach I lost my wallet and the free tickets. I emailed the company when we got here, they searched our past reservation and honoured the free voucher they had given us even though I had lost it. Amazing customer service. We saw tons of dolphins and the kids were so excited. The staff was so friendly and helpful with the kids. Thanks Again!
