We did the sunset cruise as a last minute idea for something to do while in Beaufort. It was absolutely amazing! Great crew that was very accommodating and informative. The view..... no words to describe how beautiful it was! You got to do this cruise!

Captain Steve, Lisa and first mate Mandy are the perfect hosts! Steve's vessel is a huge catamaran that slices through the water effortlessly for a very comfortable ride. In the past 10 years visiting the Crystal Coast and Beaufort we have sailed every year. The sunset cruise is very relaxing and the Cape Lookout tour from noon-6:00 pm is best.... More

This was our favorite part of our short trip. The Cape Lookout sail was fantastic. Yes it's 6 hours; 1.5 hours out, two stops, and 1.5 hours back. Steve is a friendly, skilled and calm sailor bringing us in among nice swells and sprays at 12+knots. The boat holds up to 38? passengers yet our trip included 15 which was... More

You couldn't ask for a more beautiful day or lovely experience. Staff was friendly and informative. They handled the catamaran with efficient skill. We enjoyed shell hunting along a great beach and then visited the Lookout lighthouse. It was a nice day and we all enjoyed ourselves.

For Visitors and Locals alike. This is a MUST DO experience. Do it every year and never fails to be less than one of the best experiences of the season. Safe, Fun, Educational and Beautiful. Steve is an excellent Captain and the Look Out Cruise is just the BEST! Catered by Beaufort Grocery and the beautiful crystal waters, wild ponies,... More

Family of four (boys 11/8) hailing from NY, first time in Beaufort. Our first excursion was the a.m. dolphin cruise. It was a lovely way to begin the day as well as the vacation! The vessel is immaculate. Captain Steve is knowledgable and welcoming. The boys had a blast sitting on the ropes and assisting with the raising of the... More

Decided to take the six hour cape lookout cruise on Sunday the 31st of July. From the moment we boarded till our departure, we were treated as if we had exclusively chartered this beautiful catamaran even though there were over twenty on board this sail. There was always plenty of drinks available including ice cold beers for the bargain price... More

We took the 6 hour cruise to Cape Lookout and strongly recommend this trip for anyone who enjoys sailing. When I booked the trip the staff was very helpful and informative. The trip was one of the best cruise we have taken, and we have gone on similar trips in many places. The captain and first mate were excellent from... More

What a fun tour. Captain Steve I believe his name was, was awesome. He knew history, he knew all about sailing, he was a very knowledgeable man. His son was with him and he was as well. His first mate I believe her name was Mandy. She was so great in doing what she needed to do, was friendly. A... More
