What a FUN time we had aboard The Belle of Topsail. We've cruised with Captain David and his wife Sharon before and try to do this every trip to the delightful island of Topsail. The cruise was approximately 2.5 hours long down the sound and back. The captain will call out points of interests but otherwise there is great music,... More

We had such fun! We would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone who wants to have a great evening: 2 hours of moving down the Inland waterway, fully stocked bar, delicious meal, entertaining captain, admiral and pirate crew! We loved it!

The cost is defiantly not worth what you receive in return. The pirate portion of the show is ok. The meal is horrid.

Can't believe we waited so long to experience the dinner cruise and Pirate show. Food was great and the kids loved the pirates. My daughter even asked if they were real pirates! Now they want to go every week.

Such an awesome thing to do when visiting Topsail Island or Surf City!! Nothing like going out as Captain David narrates along the ICW awesome music playing, then there's the pirate show that is very entertaining and gets the passengers involved, a must do when you visit

For any brides-to-be out there looking for a no-hassle, beautifully sentimental, affordable, and FUN wedding venue, I would HIGHLY recommend the Belle of Topsail. Captain David and his wife Sharon are incredible people who make you feel like you've known them your whole life. They take care of the food, the decorations, the drinks, the music (we actually chose the... More

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
