EARLY BIRD SPECIAL

Enjoy what Captain Stuart Wescott calls a guaranteed dolphin watch tour June through October. Not only scenic, the tour on the Captain Johnny is incredibly educational. Learn about the bottlenose dolphins that frequent our waters.  See them mate and birth on many cruises, and enjoy their playful behavior. 

Breathtaking views abound. There is plenty of elbowroom aboard Captain Johnny so no one misses seeing these creatures in the wild. The boat is covered for sun protection with a restroom on board. It also is Coast Guard inspected. Learned, local crews are available to answer questions about the Outer Banks. This is the kind of trip that enlivens and refreshes guests as they cruise across the water with wind in their faces!

Want to see a glorious Outer Banks sunset, too? Then choose their sunset dolphin watch. The tour departs about two hours before sunset, which varies week to week. You will be given a departure schedule when you reserve tickets. Tickets are only sold the week of the tour. Reservations are preferred, for the tour sells out early. It runs Monday thru Friday weather permitting unless a private tour has been scheduled.

So what do we mean by guaranteed? If no dolphins are found, paying passengers may ride again free during the current season (with some restrictions).  Office hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Trips are scheduled at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and sunset cruise is 6:15 p.m. Call us at 252-473-1475 for tickets!

Outer Banks Nature Spots

Outer Banks Nature Spots

With 150 miles of pristine coastline, and some of the East Coast's largest swaths of undisturbed maritime forest, the Outer Banks is a popular destination for nature lovers. As an important spot on America's "Flyway," which is the route that migrating birds take on their northern and southern treks across the country, the Outer Banks is the temporary home to hundreds of species of birds. Combine this with the number of deer, foxes, waterfowl, fish, turtles, and even alligators, and it's clear that the Outer Banks is truly a wild vacation destination.
