We had a great time on the Sunset tour! They were able to make room for our big group, even when we added people at the last minute! The sunset was beautiful, the Captains were friendly and had great stories. It is a great way to celebrate a birthday or any other occasion. We will definitely take another tour next... More

We highly recommend Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours for families who want to do a little fishing in Wilmington. Call Captain Joe to do a 2 hour tour, staying on the intracoastal and inlet where the water is tranquil and everyone catches something! Perfect, low-key outing and reasonable rates for families. Bring quarters to park your car!!! Enjoy!

We made same day reservations for the sunset cruise. Finished dinner a bit early and started for the dock. We arrived @ 6pm, trip wasn't to leave until 6:30pm, but there the boat sat. I thought the private charter was to be finished by 6, that Capt Joe mentioned on the phone. We boarded and the boat left the dock.... More

Had a fabulous day at Masonboro Island! Got some great shells. Will definitely use this service again. Great trip for my family of 4.

We had a private tour for our family of 12, including three 9 yr. olds. Capt. Joe and his first mate (Kirk - I think) were terrific. The sunset tour was very relaxing and informative at the same time. They provided a 'behind the beach' tour filled with WB facts, water fowl and fishing information. They patiently answered the kid's... More

I took my children, 4 and 6, on the Pirate cruise offered by this company. I would not recommend this trip. The boat is a pontoon boat with plastic chairs set up on the deck. A costumed and rather salty-looking pirate sits at the front, and all the children sit silently around him. I know that pirate had some interesting... More

Great personal and personalized service. We called Capt Joe and said we wanted to go out to Masonboro Island sometime in the next few days. He checked the weather and tide charts and suggested when we should go for seclusion and good shell hunting. He took us out to the island and asked when we wanted to be picked up.... More

We (my husband and I)had a wonderful low-tide tour (3pm) of shorebirds and saw close to 20 different ones. Cap't Joe is an ornithologist and is very knowledgeable about birds and the area ecology. We went down the coastal inlet to Masonboro Island.

The sunset tour turned out to be a ride around marinas listening to the cost of various boats and how much the houses were worth. Yea. I'd assume by the other comments the more focused excursions would offer more, but this trip, although pleasant, wasn't really worth the time.

We took our son's family (4 children 2-11 years) on the pirate tour to Masonboro Island. We had a great time especially the 6 year old boy. Following the pirate, searching for, and finding a treasure fascinated him and his 4 year old sister. A lovely beach to search for shells. I plan to try the birding trip in the... More
