We arranged several tours for members of our family who were in Southport for a reunion. They all loved it and raved about Captain Bert and Becky. I highly recommend including a harbor tour on the Solomon T in your visit to Southport.

We enjoyed an amazing personal tour of Southport in the mighty Cape Fear River aboard the beautifully restored 1938 wooden workboat, Solomon T, with Captain Bert and his lovely wife Becky. Enjoyed every minute of being on the water, hearing the history narrative and the seeing the sights where the movie Safe Haven was filmed. No trip to Southport is... More

We had a great tour of the Cape Fear River from Southport, NC with Captain Bert and his first mate and wife, Becky. It was an interesting and educational couple of hours as they took time explain many of the sights, the seaside culture, animals and environment. We even participated in a turtle inventory to help the endangered Kemp's Ridley... More

My wife and I took our 4 year old son for a tour on the Solomon T and had an absolutely fantastic time. Captain Bert and Becky we personable and friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the local area. We cruised around Southport and Oak Island, saw beautiful wildlife on Battery Island and enjoyed the calm waters of the Intercoastal. This... More

We hopped on board a boat with room for 6-8 people, I guess, for an hour-long trip out on the water near Southport/Oak Island, Coastal North Carolina; a trip to wrap up my weekend spent walking along the beach on Oak Island. We couldn't have had a nicer day out on the water. We were lucky to see the dolphins... More

Perfect weather gave us a perfect ride. As we cruised along the intra-coastal waterway and Cape Fear River, eating our afternoon snacks and enjoying the sunset, we discussed the local history and wildlife with " Captain Bert". Slowing as we passed the Southport Marina, checking out the boats in the slips and those at anchor. When we entered a quiet... More

After reading the other reviews, my husband and I were really looking forward to this excursion. It was extremely disappointing and boring. Although Bert is an extremely personable guy with a great deal of knowledge of not only boating, but also of the history of North Carolina, the tour was certainly not worth the $25 per person he charges. There... More

We booked a sunset cruise on the Solomon T because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. What a great decision, I looked like a genius to my family. Bert and Becky were excellent tour guides, very informative, but also extremely personable. We were very appreciative of their knowledge and experience handling the boat. I would whole heartedly recommend them, and schedule... More

We recently had the privilege of taking a sunset tour aboard the Solomon T. I traveled with my 19 year old son and his girlfriend and we all had a wonderful time. Captain Bert and his lovely wife were so knowledgeable about the history of Southport and the surrounding area. We have a part time residence on Oak Island and... More

My husband and I took a 1 1/2 hr. sunset tour with Captain Bert and his wife Becky- wonderful folks. Very informative tour and fun! Do not hesitate to reserve your place on this great tour! Worth every penny.
