“Relaxing and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

This was a great cruise! You sail from Beaufort harbor to Cape Point Lighthouse. Along the way you cruise beside Shackleford Banks and can see the wild ponies of the shore. Included in the tour is beverages, snacks a scrumptious lunch and adult beverage for an additional cost, but not expensive. The crew is friendly and fun. I can not wait to go back to Beaufort and do this cruise again. A catamaran is so much better than a simple boat!

“Loved the 6 hour cruise to Cape Lookout.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

Great cruise from waterfront at Beaufort to Cape Lookout. Beachcombing, swimming, and visit to lighthouse plus great ride to and from the cape. If you're lucky the captain will find some dolphins to watch. Delicious lunch from Beaufort Grocery.
Take a beach towel and wear a swimsuit. Sunscreen of course, too. Maybe some extra snacks in your beach bag.

“Great day with Lookout Cruises”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

My husband I took the catamaran trip to Cape Lookout with Lookout Cruises. We left Beaufort at noon and sailed/motored about 1.5 hours to the Cape Lookout National Seashore. They severed a wonderful lunch with a variety of wraps, sandwhiches, bean salad, potato salad,etc... We had time to shell and explore on this island before we went to the lighthouse and had plenty of time to explore there too. The crew and captain of the boat were fantastic, very hospitable. There was water, lemonade and soda available all day (included in the price). At one point they served fresh fruit for a snack and later in the day walked around with a basket of small bags of chips. We didn't need anything except our towels. Very family friendly. There was a bathroom on the boat and facilities at the lighthouse. It was such a wonderful day on the water. We highly recommend Lookout cruises and will be returning to them for another trip.
