Knowledgeable and fun to talk to. The area is full of wildlife and we even lucked out and saw a small pod of dolphins on our excursion. If we come back to the area, we will bring our kids for sure.

I cannot say enough about this tour! It was fabulous. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and very nice! We had a wonderful time on the boat while being able to get great views of the sunset. This is definitely a must do for anyone visiting the area. The trip lasted about an hour long and we even got to... More

We can't say enough about the service and value provided by our new found friends at Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours. Joe and Kirby provided an excellent experience while sharing loads of local knowledge and some great music for the ride. Reasonably priced compared to many boat tours we have done in the past. We will be back next time we... More

We really enjoyed our tour. The captain is very nice and very knowledgeable. He even picked us up right off the dock where we were staying, helped us get out stuff into the boat, helped us in and out. Gave us tips on where to go on Marlboro.

I was with 3 other family members and at the last minute we decided to call and see if Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours had any openings for a birding/shelling trip. They were able to accommodate us for a trip that afternoon, and we were so glad they did! It was an amazing experience going out with Captain Jack (Captain Joe... More

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

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
