“Entertaining and Reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We took the 1 1/2 hour scenic lunch tour. It was very pleasant, the captain kept up a narrative of the various islands and historic buildings we passed. For $25 each we had a decent lunch and an enjoyable cruise. We were up on the top of the boat which is enclosed but with large open plastic windows that rolled up and out of the way. From there we were able to see over the shrubs on the beach and saw a herd of wild ponies on one of the islands. It's kid friendly and the captain allowed several children into the pilot house (one at a time) to "steer" the boat. Beaufort is a really pleasant little town to spend some time and this cruise was a nice addition.

“A Boat Trip that didn't Disappoint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

We recently did a "boat-trip-a-day" tour of the Southern Outer Banks and the Crystal Coast Lady did not disappoint. We took an afternoon cruise and saw the wild horses on Shackleford Banks, dolphins along the ICW, and had a great history lesson from the friendly captain. Great value...boat was not crowded...and the upper deck made for great sightseeing. A great way to see Beaufort from the water.

“Happy, Happy, Happy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

My niece and I went on the Wild Pony and Dolphin scenic cruise aboard the big white boat and had a great time. Since it was early April, we had the boat almost to ourselves with about 15 others on board. The Captain was very knowledgeable and even had the 'down east brogue'... My niece is still talking about how he said Chimleys for chimneys and how he was able to spot dolphin just by the swirl at the top of the water. Our pictures of the ponies are already displayed in the house! Overall excellent trip and we hope to cruise with these folks again soon, either on the same boat or their new pirate ship!
