“Excellent water tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Narrator was excellent. Tour included historic sites in Beaufort but the coverage of the wild horses on Carrot island was outstanding. Great time!

“A great trip around Beaufort Sound”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Captain Bob made the trip very enjoyable, sharing his knowledge of the local lore and the area in general. It was a pleasant (and cool) way to take a tour of the Beaufort waterfront on a hot summer afternoon.

We did get to see the horses and learned about the island habitat. Informative and fun!

“relaxing, informative tour of the waterfront”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Waterbug Tour was a great overall waterfront tour of Beaufort. I learned a lot and enjoyed the relaxing pace of the boat trip. We only saw one wild pony on the trip we took, but the captain made sure to spend lots of time near it so we could all get photos. My four-year-old daughter enjoyed the ride as well. Great for individuals and families.

“Excellent water tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We had a wonderful time on the Waterbug tour. I didn't want it to end. Capt. Bob was very nice and knowledgeable about the history of Beaufort. My husband was wary about going on a boat, he didn't know if he could handle the rocking of the boat, but later said it wasn't bad. He'd like to go out again. My son enjoyed the ride as well. The other staff were very nice and very informative.
