What a treat to find such an economical and at times historical tidbits thrown in as an added treat during the Prince of Tides the Harbour Cruise. The still pristine waterways that Captain Laurence traveled must be due in part to nature's tides that keep the boat traffic at bay from getting too close to the Historic Homes. (Lucky Home... More

We booked the tour in hopes of seeing some dolphins, and though the sightings were sparse, mostly tails and a few fins, we understood as they aren't pets that can be controlled. The Captain was very informative and the information provided about some of the houses along the tour that have appeared in films was very interesting. Overall it was... More

We did the sunset cruise for a birthday present for my husband. I reserved our space with a quick email. I had to chage the dates 3 times due to husbands military obligations and they were very accommodating. Very informative tour; the mate he brought on board told some stories about his great grandparents starting back around the Civil War... More

We chose Captain Dick's tour because it was the only dolphin tour we could find in the area. It didn't wow us but we were not disappointed either. I don't remember the Captain's name but he was an older gentleman. He was not an overly chatty fellow but he was polite and very informative. We learned a lot of information... More

Captain Lawrence was the Captain when we went on the tour. Ask a simple question and you get "I will tell you when we get back". My question was ..."will we be in the Cypress Wetlands area? The correct answer should have been ...No, that is in a different area and not on this tour. His answer.."I will tell you... More

Beautiful scenery, loads of dolphins and the bonus of the swing bridge in action, made for a wonderful tour. The tour was very peaceful and relaxing, as well as educational and would appeal to all age groups.

We took the Sunset Cruise in early April and enjoyed every minute of the ride. The scenery was beautiful, the homes and boats along the river were fun to see, and the Bottle Nose Dolphins put on a great show for us. The Captain gave a nice description of the natural history of the river and the various wildlife that... More

I recommend parking at Bay Street and going to the red brick ships building before doing anything else in Beaufort. You can buy a combo ticket in the red brick building. For $34 you can do the hour long river tour and the hour long carriage ride by Southurn Rose Carriage Tours. Individually, this would cost $38. The Prince of... More

Capt. Dick took us on a lovely and informative cruise of the Beaufort river. Coming from the Midwest, I wanted my kids to see some dolphins and Capt. Dick did not disappoint. I enjoyed all of the extra info we learned about the area while on the ride. Prices were very reasonable. If you happen to be in the area... More
