Just got back from Ocracoke, our 14th trip, but first time to Portsmouth. You really need to decide what you want from this trip. Portsmouth can be quite buggy with mosquitos... read more

My wife and I took the ATV trip and lives it! The village tour was not available due to being over run with bugs and standing water but that's not we wanted to go. We wanted to go over and hit the private beach with the ATVs and just be out on the secluded beach. My wife loved the unique... More

If you want some adventure during your vacation then this is the trip for you !!! We had a wonderful time shelling, watching birds and just hanging in the surf . Our guide was so laid back and easy going it just made for a super relaxing day. I will say we were warned about the bugs but we did... More

I made reservations to go to Portsmouth in May for my August vacation. They were aware it was just me, myself, and I. They said in May via telephone that was fine, but would I be willing to go with another party as it was easier for them. I said that was fine. I never heard anything from them on... More

I tried to get reservations for a trip for my wife and my self two months in advance, and was continually ignored by this company. I called first in April, and got an answer on the phone, but the man informed me he was at the store, and would call me back at nine in the evening. No call came... More

Yhe old village is one of the worst areas, especially have rain. The beaches are wide, basically bug free and great for shelling. Now comes the... More

This is a quick boat ride from Ocracoke to Portsmouth Island. Then on the ATVs and out to miles of white beaches - nobody but your tour group and your guide. It is stunningly beautiful. Driving the ATVs across the island is a blast. The shells laying everywhere are mind blowing. The guide is friendly and very knowledgeable about the... More
