This is our second eco trip (July 2010 & May 2011) with Don Watkins, the captain. The man knows what he is doing and seems to always get eagles to appear on cue. Snacks are provided and being health conscious individuals, he has tailored the snacks appropriately. His wife makes a wicked good hummus. We recommend Triangle Boat Tours whole... More

Wow! This captain thought of everything to make our trip relaxing and enjoyable. I am going to keep this in mind for an afternoon or evening out when I have out of town guests to show off the gem that is Jordan Lake.

Capt. Don gave a great tour of the lake. We saw a young bald eagle, a fox, lots of cormorants. There was plenty of soda and water to drink. When it cooled off as the sun was setting he brought out blankets to those who got cold and we saw a great sunset.

We enjoyed our ride from start to finish. Saw birds galore--bald eagles, osprey, herons. Ducks too. The air was fresh and the water calm. A great time with good friends. Cap'n Don took good care of us. Would definitely do again.

We were looking for a fun, easy, and unique way to celebrate my 40th birthday with our three small children and some friends. I saw a sign for Triangle Boat Tours, so I called them up and got lots of good info to fit a boat trip into our weekend of fun. We rented a larger campsite (C40) on Jordan... More

Two weeks ago our group of 12 women went for a ride on the pontoon boat with Captain Don. We saw many different types of birds including osprey, eagle, great blue heron and cormorants. Captain Don was very personable and informative and the trip was complete with drinks and snacks! I highly recommend this excursion! Offered: Ecotour, Afternoon Tea, Sunset... More

Captain Don was so much fun! He was professional and courteous and made our outing great. We had a group of seven of us ranging in age from 17 to 80. The younger folks took part in the tubing, which was tons of fun, and the older folks enjoyed being out on the lake. Don knew a great deal about... More

I highly recommend this company if you are looking not only for a fun and relaxing time on Jordan Lake as well as a company that is friendly and professional. This is the total package. My girlfriends and I took a sunset cruise and had such a great time on this boat. Don't miss it!

My son and I went out on Jordan Lake with Captain Don and Heidi, and I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had in a long time. The ride was beautiful, and the time we spent playing at the beach was wonderful. My son had the time of his little life (he's 19 months... More
