We booked a family fun sail. It’s a small sail boat that holds up to six people. It was a lot of fun. Harley did a good job. Hold on tight - I had no idea how much a sail boat tilts!

Did the tour with wife plus a 12 and 9 year old. Guide was very nice but tour itself was disappointing. All we did was kayak around marsh grass. Didn't really see anything you can't see from land, was expecting to learn and see more.

We booked two sailboats for our group. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and made sure we had a great time. Even our youngest at age 5 was perfectly comfortable and loved every minute.

We took an hour long kayak tour around the marsh, my daughter, hubby, and I. Great guide, wonderful scenery and serene. We learned tidbits about the area, wildlife, and had fun. If and when we go back we would take it again.

Scenic tour of Bald Head Creek. Not a lot to see in an hour, but fun overall. Guide was pleasant. Good for first-timers.

The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. We have taken several Fun Sail trips and Dan and Justin are fun, safe and educational as well. They don't "overdo" the educational part, but we always find out something new about the area. We also have taken...More
