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 have traveled to topsail island for years this being our first to try the belle topsail. We did a dinner pirate cruise which was awesome. My son is only 6 and at first he was scared. The cast then noticed this and had him be a part of the skit. He loved it! We also went on a dolphin... 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

A total let down. Complete garage. The billboard signs coming into topsail, the website, and brochures all are completely miss leading. Makes it out to be some fabulous "cruise" "show" with a "buffet style dinner". It's a slightly over sized pontoon boat that claims to seat 49. Not enough seats. They had wooden stools to make up. The buffet consisted... More

We had three 10 to 11 yr. Olds do the pirate school and they enjoyed it. The rest of us did the sailing where we were captured and it was thrilling. We had several younger ones on the boatbwith us and a few were frightened. It was a good show but difficult to hear all that was taking place. I... More

On July 20 2013, I had my wedding on The Belle. I had a total of 13 people with me on my special day. Captain David & Mrs. Sharon done and excellent job along with the Raven. I would recommend this to any and everyone! Everyone was so professional and have great attitudes. The food was awesome too! It is... More

We did the dinner cruise with 2 boys age 11 & 9. We loved the music and wonderful care the crew gave their guest. Once the pirates showed up we used the water cannons to keep them at bay. The pirates were fun, entertaining and exciting we all four enjoyed the dinner and show. This is a must attraction for... More
