A beautiful relaxing way to end a day after a sunny hot time at the beach. The crew was gracious in welcoming the guests. Food was very good-Low Country Boil- and plentiful. Throughout the tour the staff called attention to things to watch for. It was great for us-we live in Morehead but it was wonderful for our guests from... More

We planned this trip especially for the dinner cruise with local country singer Bryan Mayer. While my husband wasn't as impressed because the volume was at a point where you could barely understand the words he was singing, it was overall an amazing little concert cruise. The BBQ dinner was yummy, and the cruise itself was so peaceful and relaxing.... More

lots of personal attention from the crew. the boat was very clean and air conditioned. however their brochure advertises "enjoy the wild horse and dolphin scenic tour" - we did not see any wildlife. if you would like to see the Beaufort and Morehead City waterfront, it is a good way to spend several hours.

We have had a few events on the CCL over the years. We love the personal attention that we have received each time! Whether its with the kids and family or just an adult event. I certainly recommend this experience for all ages! The food is amazing and local, the boat is clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly!

This company does not honor their duty. After I was given a graduation gift of a cruise in New Bern they said they did not offer that service and would not refund my money. I have a 9 month old and a 3 year old and cannot travel to Beaufort for a cruise. I shouldn't have to as they signed... More

As we have told you on the phone, we will refund the value of your gift once we receive the gift certificate. We ended the operation in New Bern several months ago. You called 3-4 weeks ago. My staff gave you an option of using the gift certificate on the Crystal Coast Lady. You declined and asked for a refund.... More

This is a nice boat to take a 1.5 hour tour of the area by water. The staff/crew are great, very personable and give details and history of the homes along the waterfront, blackbeard, various islands and wildlife along the way. The boat is large and air conditioned inside, you can also stay outside if you wish. We saw dolphin... More

The threat of rain scared away the crowds so we had the run of the top deck of the boat. The weather cleared and made for a great trip. The captain and crew were welcoming and provided good information on the sights without being cheesy or annoying! We did the pony and dolphin trip and were able to see both.... More

We took the Crystal Coast Lady Dolphin and Pony Cruise on a Sunday afternoon and it was wonderful! What a great way to spend the afternoon and see the sites from the water. The Captain and crew were fabulous from the moment we got there. It's a very reasonably priced way to enjoy the water! Thank you to the Captain... More

Our group went on the Saturday lunch cruise. We had a wonderful experience. The boat was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and inviting. We enjoyed a light lunch of fresh salad, slaw, deli meats and cheeses and a variety of breads and cookies. Beaufort is such a beautiful area and the views from the Crystal Coast Lady... More
