This was a very relaxing ride along the river and the guide told a lot of stories. We did see dolphins though it would have been nice to spend a lite bit more time in the area to get a better look at the dolphins. We did the early tour at 11 am. This was good as it was cooler.... More

We enjoyed this river tour on our most recent trip to Beaufort. (Well, most of us. Our youngest acted like a hyena the majority of the boat ride. My apologies to our captain and the other guests.) We enjoyed seeing the houses, learning a little history, and watching the dolphins play. It is not a long tour or overly informative,... More

I rode on the sunset cruise today narrated by Capt. Lawrence. It was an awesome experience. From the moment we stepped on the boat, I noticed that not only was I comfortable and had my shoes off, so were the other guest on the boat. Capt. Lawrence was Great. We were all friends by the end of the tour. We... More

We took an evening boat ride with Captain Lawrence and it was amazing!! He was very informative and so funny. We got to see dolphins, a turtle, Osprey nests, and many other wonderful sites along the tour. We would recommend this to anyone visiting the area and even to the locals as it was such a beautiful ride! We will... More

Captain Dick offers a tour of the river at varying times. We took the tour at 2:00 pm. Tour lengths vary slightly, but generally last from just over an hour to about an hour and a half. The boat (The Prince of Tides) is a large covered pontoon style. The tour is $20 per person, and tickets can be purchased... More

We took this tour on a very cool November morning. We have ben on many river,harbor bay tours and this was was good but not great. The captain gave us the history about the city, the intercoastal waterway,and the flora and fauna of the river. The scenery was beautiful too and we saw several dolphins and lots of birds. My...

Went with my husband on this pontoon boat tour of Beaufort and the Beaufort River. Captain Dick is very informative about many topics. We learned about the history of the city, the birds, the marsh, the river, the homes, and even got to see a mother and baby dolphin feeding. I recommend spending the $20 to see Beaufort from a...

We recently went on an evening cruise on the Prince of Tides with Captain Lawrence. The weather had been iffy all day, but he was great about communicating with the passengers and even took us out a bit early to try and beat the bad weather. Turns out, the weather was perfect for the cruise and we saw one of... More

We had the opportunity to take a river tour of Beaufort on the Prince of Tides boat with Captain Dick. While he was knowledgeable of the history of the river and the city I would rate the tour as average. I don't fault them for the few dolphins we saw he did seem to favor the left side of the...
