Leave the dock and the adventure begins.
Enjoy the sun, the breeze, the salt air
Look around – there, over on the piling, there’s a pelican, or osprey, or cormorant. And is that a porpoise over there?
Can it be ‘Freeze Dry 56’? *
No matter what the weather might be, you will find comfort on the boat. In warmer weather the sea breezes will keep you cool as we motor along. In cooler weather, the roll-down curtains and heated interior will help you stay warm.
There are tables and chairs, and plenty of room to move about.
Sit up front on the open deck and feel the wind in your hair and sun on your back, or sit inside in the shade and shelter from the wind.
We carry all the safety equipment, too, life jackets stored right overhead, fire extinguishers, marine radio and the security of twin engines.
Children are safely surrounded by railing completely around the deck.
There is a ramp to help you get on and off the boat, and we can help our guests with limited mobility.
What is there to see? Tours can include the scenic areas along Banks Channel and the Intracoastal Waterway, Shinn Creek and Mott’s Channel, the beauty of the salt marshes, the yachts traveling through the area, and all the beautiful waterfront homes and boats.
And of course, the trip to Masonboro Island
* ‘Freeze Dry 56’ is a frequent visitor to the area. Remember ‘Free Willy’? ‘Freeze Dry 56’ is a porpoise that escaped from Florida’s Marine Land. He is a wild porpoise, but has learned to smile and be friendly and try to tempt people to feed him. You shouldn’t, but I heard he likes bologna sandwiches . . .
The name comes from the tattoo on his dorsal fin, like a brand but instead of using a hot iron to burn the brand into the skin, the identification mark is made by freezing, like having a wart removed.
