About
TourH2O is the area's premiere boat tour experience! We provide pontoon boat and kayak tours of the beautiful Brunswick islands. Our large, comfortable, and reliable pontoon boats make the experience pleasurable and our USCG licensed Captains make the experience fun and safe. Our kayak tours avoid the busy and dangerous boat traffic of the ICW and tow a "private island" to a safe and tranquil area near the creeks and estuaries that are a natural habitat mecca.

Loved the 2 hour trip out of Ocean Isle with Capt. Joe! It was a beautiful afternoon and Joe gave us a few options on the Inter-coastal and then kept just the right pace as we we had cocktails and snacks. TourH2O even allowed our two dogs along for the ride! We highly recommend the trip and Capt. Joe.

What a treat! Being out on the water at sunset! Captain Jim was so accommodating, friendly and full of interesting info about the area. Highly recommend his tours. As the sun set we were encircled by at least a dozen dolphins. It was special.

Our sunset pontoon cruise was amazing. Captain Don was engaging and so knowledgeable about the area. He had a great personality and made the trip fun and relaxing! The boat was clean and spacious. Will definitely do this again when back down that way!!

We had a wonderful experience on a sunset cruise that we booked. Captain Jim was professional, courteous, and knowledgable, and above all, he was a great guide. He arrived to pick us up at our canal dock right on schedule and proceeded with our tour along the Intra Coastal Waterway and then on the river to Shallotte. He shared a lot of local knowledge during our time together, including his ability to identify many different types of wildlife we encountered during our excursion. After the tour concluded our entire group was raving about it and agreed that Captain Jim was an essential part of the experience that we had. We have his contact information saved so that we can make a tour with TourH20 and Captain Jim a regular excursion on future trips to Ocean Isle Beach.

We went on a sunset tour with Captain John last night, and had a great time. He took us where we asked to go, was very knowledgeable about the area, and made sure we could take photographs of the beautiful sky. We'll be back!

A very enjoyable, relaxing 3 hour scenic tour on the waterways at Holden Beach. Our captain was very friendly and knowledgeable, talking about the history of the islands as well as pointing out the local wildlife and attractions. We did not see any dolphins, but we did see egrets, herons, pelicans, cormorants, ibises, a young osprey and other birds as we cruised the waterway enjoying the wonderful weather. Definitely recommend when you visit Holden Beach.

This is the fourth year in a row I've gone on Tour H2O for my birthday. I've gone on other occasions, but taking my husband and kids for my b'day is getting to be a great tradition. The last two years we've taken the Sunset Cruise, which is so relaxing, and not so hot. Also, my daughter loves to photograph birds, and she sees a lot more of them during the Sunset Cruise.
