We have been coming to Beaufort for the past 13 years and have never been on the Crystal Coast dinner cruise. So we decided we were going to finally do it this year. Don’t!! For $106- the food was mediocre at best. Bbq ribs or bbq chicken w/potato salad, Cole slaw or side salad and hush puppies. Tea or water in small plastic cups with no ice. Cheap plastic cutlery to eat with. Then- for the actual boat ride. The captain pointed out ponies (that were never seen) and dolphins. No other landmarks or 411 was given the entire time. Definitely not worth the money and the smaller boat tours are definitely better & more informative and personable.…

I'm sorry. But I expected to spend more time out the horse island and ocean scenery. However the trip spent its time through the harbor area. Not very interesting if advertised to be a NATURE tour.

Excellent tour comfortable seating and knowledgeable crew. Would highly recommend for those wanting to do just a boat tour and not disembark anywhere. Snacks and bathroom a definite plus on the vessel.

It was a lovely day on the water. We didn't see any dolphins, but that can't be helped. We did see several of the horses on Shackleford Island. The problem was that the boat's speaker system was not working and although the guide appeared to be quite knowledgable, he was unable to project over the boat, which was full, with many small and very loud children.…

If you have the time while in Beaufort, NC, you must take the Wild Horse & Dolphin Scenic Cruise. We went on the 4:00pm cruise and it was the best experience we had taking any small boat cruises. George and Bobby T. was the Captain and crew and George was knowledgable and entertaining. He was on the top of his game this day and had us going when he saw man a fishing on Carrot Island, he stopped the boat and excitedly had us all look and proceeded to tell us it was a wild human. When asked how he got where he was, George stated he didn't know because he was wild. All had a good laugh. Even thought the cruise is an hour and a half, George took his time making sure we saw and heard a lot of information. Heading back to the dock, George saw Dolphins and strayed course for everyone on the boat to see them. Well worth the money and time and if you have the time, please go and check out the cruise out.…
