Beaufort was meant to be seen by water.   Departing from the downtown Beaufort marina at the Waterfront Park, this fun escape is the perfect introduction to Beaufort’s incredible history and abundant wildlife.

As we cruise along the waterfront, the captain shares stories about local history, beginning with Native Americans and into Spanish exploration, French settlement and English colonization.  Along the way, we’re likely to see playful bottlenose dolphins, nesting bald eagles and ospreys on the hunt.

Fun for all ages, this 1.5 hour cruise is a relaxing– and cool- break from the mainland.

 

 

Private tours are available year round!  Charters are tailored to your group and can be arranged any time of day. Simply fill out this short inquiry form and we’ll get back with you promptly.
