Our boat tours are true eco excursions, we are all about exploring remote places. The tour boat is a 18 passenger U.S. Coast Guard Inspected vessel, it was custom built to specifically experience nature and wildlife, designed for shallow water uncharted type excursions. We get as close to all the sights as possible, we can literally park our tour boat on the beach. Tour boat is open air, with upfront covered passenger seating with 360 degree unobstructed views, you are literally seated along the edge of the water.  The captain will transport you to the best places to view the sights, from wildlife to lighthouses, all while you learn about the maritime history of the area. The open air small boat experience provides an immersion with the landscape, all while allowing us to quietly and closely approach the natural environment in away no other tour boat can.  *THIS IS NOT a slow cabin cruiser wine and cheese type tour, short ferry boat ride or booze cruise that only go around in circles for a few miles. Your captain will cruise at speeds which will require you to hold on to your hat, this tour is for you if you think wind and a sea spray make for a good day.  We cover all the local sights, exploring over 20 miles of area waterways, including the back waters channels of the lower Cape Fear Riverand ICW waterways around Southport, Oak Island and Bald Head Island.
