My family and I decided to take a Pirate Santa Cruise on the Belle of Topsail. It was the best thing we have ever did as a family!!! From the sights and sounds of the ocean to the live entertainment, we enjoyed every minute of our cruise. Now we have a new family tradition!!!

If you're looking for a unique way to experience Topsail island, Belle of Topsail is the answer. I have taken both adult-only evening cruises as well as daytime family cruises with pirates boarding the boat. All have been fun wonderful experiences. (The Santa Pirate cruises in December are, by far, the best holiday event we have ever participated in.) The... More

We took the afternoon sightseeing/dolphin tour this afternoon. All four members in our party had a great time. The Captain and his lovely wife were great at keeping everyone's spirit high. The landscape was breathtaking and the Captain did a great job of pointing out the local flora and fauna and wildlife. I highly recommend a tour on the Belle

We take our boys each year and they talk about it for months. The crew and actors make it an awesome time for both kids and parents. The cast really play the parts well and blend a little history with modern fun. Food on the sunset dinner cruise was perfectly matched for the setting, drinks are VERY reasonably priced. These...

My wife and I got married on Belle August 10, 2014. Captain Dave, Co-Captain Matt and Admiral Sharon treated us like Kings and Queens, as well as our family and friends. The ceremony was beautiful, the food was excellent and the fun we had was just amazing. Our special day was better then we ever expected. We can't thank the... More

We went on the "dinner" Cruise, which I was hoping would be more of a "romantic dinner cruise" Wrong..! First: The food was more like appetizers from the frozen food section of Food Lion, not great food (and I'm not usually very picky). I would have preferred eating somewhere else prior to the cruise. Second: The Pirate show was more... More

We have been on three cruises on the Belle of Topsail in July alone. Two pirate cruises and the captains dinner cruise. Our adult guests and our grandchildren had a blast. I consider it a great deal, good food, entertainment, and a very gracious crew add up to a fun time. Over the years I have done over 20 and... More
