The crew

The crew was upbeat and hilarious. We had a great time and would recommend this to family’s looking for a great trip that doesn’t take the whole day.

Wonderful experience for the 4yr old! The 10yr old loved talking to the mermaid too! Would have loved to have seen dolphins, but we know that's not always a guarantee 😉. Lovely boat ride for the whole family!
Could have been better

The mermaid encounter was a good experience for my 4 year old but I thought it could’ve been better. Out of the hour and a half, only 10-15 minutes was spent talking to the mermaid. The rest was just a normal boat ride where the lady talks about turtles and sand dollars. My 4 year old said she wanted to see more of the mermaid. For the amount spent, I think they should have more mermaid interactions.

On the Mermaid Encounter Tour we spend on average 15 minutes with the mermaid. This is enough time for everyone to talk and ask questions to the mermaid. We spend the rest of the tour looking for dolphins and other wildlife. We want the tour to be enjoyable for the entire family and most of our guest enjoy that we search for dolphins and other wildlife but also get to see and talk to the Mermaid of Hilton Head.
Absolutely Amazing

We lived our experience. We are a family of 5. My 13 year old boy liked it almost as much as my 4 year old girl. We saw our first pod of dolphins right as the boat was leaving the dock. We saw 5 different pods throughout the trip. My son loved hearing about the other sea life, especially about the great white sharks. Mermaid Nina taught the kids and us a lot and looked the part.” Professor Al-G showing added some real excitement and my daughter keeps talking to everyone about how she helped save the mermaid. When people ask how our top went, it’s all she talks about. We bought her the book they read on the boat and we read it almost every day. We also got her a small mermaid Nina doll from the gift shop. Everything was very reasonably priced and the experience was worth every penny.
