Best part of our vacation. Capt. Monty is amazing. So knowledgeable and personal to everyone. He talked about the history of Beaufort that intrigue all of us. I would recommend this activity to anyone looking to get on the water. He pulled up to the shore to let us swim and look for seashells. Awesome, awesome, awesome!

Capt. Heather (aka "Capt. Z") did a terrific job entertaining our group consisting of mostly college students. She kept things interesting and lively and was very informative. Safety was a primary concern and that was reassuring. We got to see beautiful islands and even got to see the wild horses. It was a lot of fun and a great value for our dollar. My advice to travelers is not to drink three beers on the boat because there's really nowhere to go to the bathroom. Save your beer for after the trip.

Captian Monty was the best. Very knowledgeable about the area, took an interest in thr passengers and answered all our questions....we didn't ask him anything he couldn't answer. Saw horses, a blade eagle, and even a loggerhead turtle (which even Captian Monty was surprised about). Highly recommend, reasonable price, would go again.

We took our 9 year old son out for the day. We saw dolphins and came just a few yards from the wild ponies at the Rachel Carson preserve. Capt Monty and Capt Z were so lovely to spend time with and talk to about the region. It was just a really beautiful relaxing day. One of the best days of our whole vacation! I highly recommend especially if you are interested in learning more about the ecology and history of the area.

This was our 3rd time to the area in 7 years and we've gone out with Captain Monty every time. He's seen our girls grow up and revels in it. As always, he made us feel like we were family and treated us as one of his own. His knowledge of the area and its history is fantastic and he's happy to share. Our trips to the Crystal Coast wouldn't be complete without a visit to Shackleford Banks, Harker's Island, Rachel Carson Reserve, the Lighthouse or the oyster farm (not all in one trip mind you). A charter with Seavisions is a must if you're in the area.

We spent an enjoyable morning with Captain Monty and Captain Z touring the islands around the Rachael Carson Reserve. Our young grandchildren had a chance to find sea life on the islands and to see many of the beautiful wild horses. Captain Monty arranged our itinerary to avoid windy conditions but still give our family group a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful area. Both Monty and Z were informative and interactive with both the children and the adults. All in all a fun day.

Perfect day out on the water with Captain Amy. We explored islands, shelled, swam, and saw the horses. Learned a lot about the area. So much fun.

My sisters and I chartered a boat through Captain Monty and were met by Captain Amy for a tour of Shackleford Banks, Cape Lookout, Harkers Island and Carrot Island. What a wonderful adventure!! Captain Amy was great -- gave us wonderful information particularly about the wild horses we saw on the islands. Highest recommendations for this experience!!

We had a great time with Captain Amy. We spent 5 hours with her island hopping. We swam, looked for shells, and spotted lots of horses. It was a wonderful day and Amy is a wonderful, informative captain who made us feel very safe on our boat rides. She was also great with the little ones. We will have to do this again! So fun!

Captain Amy was fantastic with her communication before and during our trip. She shared historical info about the area including information about the horses.
She packed tons of water and reminded us to drink a lot. She helped us collect some creatures ( like crabs and whelk) to learn more and observe before safely releasing them. We enjoyed learning more about the history of the area, collecting shells and seeing the horses! Thank you for a wonderful family trip!
