The 1 hr boat ride is not worth the time or money. Nice scenery, few birds, no Dolphins and poor jokes of the "guide"/owner makes the situation even worse. Do not do it.

We enjoyed our boat ride down the Inter Coastal Waterway--nice to see the area from a different and informative perspective. However the host captain's running dialog got a little tiresome when he veered off the local info topics on to his personal opinions.

My family and I vacationed on Topsail Island in August of 2015, and had a great time. Our evening on The Belle of Topsail was a lot of fun. The Captain(s)/Bartender(s) and Admiral are very friendly and knowledgeable about the waterways. They are funny and personable as well. The drinks are cheap and strong. I mean, where can you get...

The boat is tiny and the food is sketchy. The captain and wife are very nice though. Bonus: There is a full bar. The pirate show was entertaining ish but long. The captains semi-inappropriate jokes were slightly enjoyable. After the Pirates finally left they turned on some wedding music and people tried to dance. Then it started raining. The Pirates...

We've been coming to topsail for over 10 years and this was our first time leaving the beach house for something other than dinner. Our kids (8 and 11) had a great time fighting off pirates! I didn't want the tour to end. I can't wait to schedule another trip next year!

This has to be the best entertainment opportunity between topsail Island and Myrtle Beach. The crew and captain actually care that you have a good time. The food is delicious, the entertainment hysterical, the ride fantastic and that's if you don't drink! Can't be more excited about it - will return every time we vacation in Carolina.

If you stay on Topsail Island, taking a tour on the Belle of Topsail is a must! It is a little pricey, they serve a buffet dinner, but it is very entertaining. I didn't really care for the dinner part, but the tour and the being attacked by pirates, well, that was awesome. The crew is friendly and believe it... More

Our 8th,9th, or 10th time on the cruise and it keeps getting better. The food has changed and it was delicious!!! BBQ was awesome. Great dinner and even better show. Pirates taking over was awesome. The Pirate playing with the Belle of Topsail afterwards on the way back to the dock was even better. Pleased with the show and will... More

We went on the Belle of Topsail with several friends for a birthday celebration and had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the pirate show. Kids had fun with the pirates and everyone had a good time.
