    We went on a campfire crabs and constellations tour. The kids were amazed. They got to learn how to catch ghost crabs safely. We got sand fleas/ saw females with eggs and return them safely to the ocean. We cooked marshmallows, and ate s’mores over an open fire and looked at the stars. They learned about the constellations. It was a beautiful night an amazing experience, and we are going again this month. This is for kids and families of any age. We had teenagers and middle school elementary and even the little kids there was something for everyone to learn and enjoy! This is the best kept secret on the beach!

    We took 2 ferries: Cedar Island to Ocracoke, and Ocracoke to Hatteras Island. What a great service. We reserved the first ferry in advance (only $15) and the second is a drive-up and get on service with ne reservations (and it's free!). Really great and easy, so no issues at all.
    I wonder if they could make more of the service though - the visitor centre at the Cedar Island end is almost empty and not very welcoming. No drinks or snacks available. On the ferry, there's a machine which is reluctant to dispense anything, holding on to all snacks as though its life depends on it.
    I really feel that, given we were on board for over 2 hours (1st ferry) and over an hour (second ferry) they could make more of the journey? Perhaps that's just me being a tourist?
    However, the ferries were a great way to travel to the Outer Banks so highly recommended.

    It’s been many years since I’ve been to Hatteras and this General Store stood out as a shop I remembered visiting. All these years later I returned and it’s still a great gift shop. Love their chocolates too!

    Our mother/daughter shelling adventure with Captain Tami was the highlight of our trip! I would give it 100 stars if I could. She has truly put her heart and soul into this business and made extra sure we had the best time! It was our dream to find some great shells and sea glass and we were blessed to find both. This was a trip we will never forget and can’t wait to come back again!

    My wife and I spent a wonderful hour at Family Jewels in 2013. She shop, while I chatted with Wendy about her store, her art, and her family. My wife and I have stopped in each year since.

    Thankful we were able to be booked for a 3 hour trip in under a week notice. Kelly was a great boatmen & knowledgeable on the area. We felt safe going out with are young kids.
    We chose clamming and shell hunting. We all enjoyed the clamming. Found 60 clams. Kids also found hermit crabs to their delight.
    While shelling, Kelly put out some real treasures for out boys to find.
    This was the highlight of the trip to OBX. Our second time using Godspeed Charters. Highly recommend.

    I feel very fortunate I found Ty Luckett because he knows his craft and how to communicate what’s right and wrong and sees your mistakes right away for correction making lessons with Ty simply a 100% positive experience. I totally recommend anyone who desires to get good quickly and solidly, to call Ty. I assure you there is no better! Thank you Captain Ty!

    Great trip! - Caught the boat limit! Captain Jay and Mate Garrett were incredibly professional and operated like a Swiss watch! Will definitely be back on this boat with this crew!

    The Marina was really nice as well with taking care of the fish and vacuum seal and freezing until we left the island at the end of the week!

    Went on a 1/2 day near shore fishing trip. Captain Brian is very professional and the boat is top notch. Lance was our 1st mate and excellent at his job. We caught some decent Spanish Mackerels, and our teens had a great time. This was a test to see how they did on the water. No sea sickness, so we are now planning a full day offshore trip next time.

    If you like to fish and you want to go our for the day or a half a day, give this guy / company a try. He is very smart and knows how to catch fish. The weather was good and we had a blast. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to do something outside.

    Bottom Line: The Captain of this fishing charter (John) is a good boat-handler and knows well where to find Bluefish and Red Drum. If you have experience fishing, know how to handle yourself on a boat, and don’t mind taking orders, then this charter is for you. But if you are new to fishing, or expect patient instruction, or are sensitive to being bossed, this charter is NOT for you.

    Spent a morning with John recently and my buddies and I generally enjoyed our charter. Each of us caught several fish, and John caught an equal amount, handing us rods to reel the fish in. We had the fish filleted back at the dock for a reasonable price. Fish dinner the next day was delicious.

    TIP: Bring your own food and drink since no consumables, not even water, are provided.
