    Perfect location to go with family or friends. Beautiful beaches and vacation homes. The restaurants we dined in were very clean and the food I would rate as a C+ to A. All in All in my humble opinion you cannot go wrong. ENJOY!

    We arrived a little early for our vacation rental, so we walked out on this pier. Only $1 per person. We saw a few people catch fish. We enjoyed hanging out there and taking some pictures.

    Captain Don conducted a relaxing, comfortable and informative pontoon tour. He was very interesting and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this unique and enjoyable tour of the intracoastal waterway!

    This is our second time using Ollie Raja and once again a great time. I took out my two nephews and son (ages 9, 13, and 16) for a 1/2 day intercoastal trip. Capt Lane was exceptional. He had knowledge of fishing this area and patience with younger fisherman. Another successful trip with fresh black drum fillets for dinner. Will continue to use Ollie Raja anytime I'm in the area.

    Rented a pontoon boat for a full day. The guys (4 of us) fished in the morning, then we docked at Provisions and met the rest of our group for lunch. Took the rest of the group out in the afternoon and hit a couple secluded beaches, and went up a couple rivers exploring. It was a lot of fun!

    Pros
    From the moment I arrived and met the backdrop staff, following up by meeting the front desk staff. Both gentlemen were exactly just that! Very friendly and accommodating and filled with information. The view upon your arrival is spectacular not just with the beautiful homes but the views of the waterway and the sound of the ocean in the distance.
    From Tbox to green the golf course is in Fabulous condition and considering how hot it’s been lately the fairways were outstanding.
    The beverage cart girl must’ve had five twins because I saw her about every 15 minutes. She was very friendly as well and a great conversationalist
    At the end of my round I met the bar staff and they were a joy to talk to and quick to make sure your glass was full. I weighed it for nothing!

    CONS
    After the second hole I got stuck behind a threesome. An elderly member and his two grandsons. They decided to turn the golf course into a driving range and hit three or four balls on every hole. Most holes took 15 to 20 minutes to play. Considering I was on their tail ,not once did they even address me. They finally left after nine holes and I picked up another Group of members. They too would not allow a faster single to play through. I could see two open holes in front of them but they show no signs of golf etiquette. Their attitude is “it’s my golf course if you don’t like it leave.”
    It’s a shame the members show no signs of golf etiquette.
    I know some will say you should’ve just skipped the holes and came back. But that is not golf etiquette in any way shape or form.

    Sadly, CPT Scott merged into another company whom I know nothing about. The new company may be fantastic, I just don't know. I don't see tubing as one of the new company's options.

    Hands down the best massage I've ever had! Julie's technique is the perfect combination between relaxing and deep tissue release. I wish I would have booked the appointment the moment I arrived. Treat yourself. You will not regret it!

    Replenish your soul with a trip to this horse farm and wild horse preserve hidden away off the beaten track in Supply, North Carolina. Bill and Sue have created an oasis not only for the wild horses they love, but also for the visitor lucky enough to stop by and spend time with them on their farm. While Bill busied himself about the endless chores associated with maintaining the operation of the farm, Sue led us methodically through an education into the location, habitats, species, and habits of the various wild horse herds found in North Carolina and the Eastern United States. Her talk was illustrated with a collection of beautiful photographs featuring the very horses we were about to visit in their pasture. Sue knows each of these horses by name and has a story behind each one of them. Following this fascinating introduction, which held the interest of everyone in our group, young and old alike, we climbed aboard the hay cart to be transported to the various pastures/pens where the horses live. It was feeding time and time to replenish fresh water buckets. Whoever in the group wanted to participate in the feeding process was encouraged to do so, and, of course, take the opportunity to spread some petting love on the horses. Since it was springtime, there was plenty of loose hair on the horses to brush off with the grooming tools. The kids loved the whole experience. When I reached out to Sue after the visit to tell her how much we enjoyed it, she said "Our hearts and souls go into this farm and the privilege of sharing it." I strongly advise the reader to reach out to Sue and schedule a visit (by appointment only) when you are in the area, and support their mission generously.

    Absolutely Amazing Lesson.

    The guys were great with our kids ages 6-12 and they all loved it! In just a few minutes they had our six year old catching waves! Amazing staff all around a wonderful experience.

    Great option for working on your game but make sure you have exact change. It’s $7 for large and $4 for small. No way to get change. But it’s a good place to practice.

    Just returned from a lovely vacation on Holden Beach and rented jet skis for our family through Holden Beach Watersports. We had five adults, one teen and one child. You will be asked to leave your credit card and anyone driving the jet skis will leave his/her driver's license. Also, I recommend Croakies or some other type of strap to secure glasses/sunglasses. They will sell you one for $8 that is pretty useless, really, but better than nothing. Good instruction given for operation. Be sure to steer clear of the docks along the Intracoastal Waterway. The sheriff (also on a jet ski) will "pull you over" for a warning, otherwise.

    My family of four booked one 2 hour lesson with Nick and Cooper. It was the best experience I’ve had on a beach ever. The owner, Nick, was absolutely dedicated to giving us a positive surf experience. He even loaned us rash guards as we arrived unprepared. He has 12 years of experience teaching surf lessons and he graciously shares his knowledge and experience with you. You learn the vocabulary, and safety rules as well as how to get up on the board. Both instructors were patient and helpful. Initially they guide you to the right wave, then teach you how to do it yourself. We all had a wonderful time. These memories will last a lifetime. Thank you, Nick and Cooper for a wonderful morning in the waves.
