We invite you to come and explore the Carolina Coast with

Captain Mark House. Let us personally guide you on your in-shore adventures. We know this may be the only trip you take to explore the lower Cape Fear region by boat so we want to make it the best experience you have ever had on the water.


Our charters are taken by appointment and we try to schedule water tours and fishing adventures in such a manner as not to rush your experience.


The "House Boat" is a Mckee Craft 185 center console skiff and will accomidate 2 to 4 guests. It has a T-top for plenty of shade and powered by an extremely quiet, enviromentally friendly , 4-stroke outboard motor.

You tell us what you want to do, where you want to go and when you want to stop to get your feet wet and we will get you there. We can adjust our tours and adventures based on your time and budget.

We had a great time exploring the intracoastal waterway!! Captain Mark was very knowledgeable and kept our kids, ages 11 and 9, engaged and excited. The conditions were a tad extreme as it was right at 100 degrees but he even brought and offered our girls gatorades and snacks, even though I had snacks I thought that was very thoughtful.... More

I remember that day was a scorcher but the young ladies never complained and wanted to keep fishing. Thank you very much for the kind words and hope to see you guys next season. Best Regards Capt. Mark More

Captain Mark treated my husband and three boys to a wonderful afternoon of fishing! His excitement, knowledge, and patience with our kids was much appreciated! The flexibility of the fishing excursion - tailored to the kids' ages, experience and interest - was just perfect. Highlights were the stop off at an isolated beach where they spent over an hour searching... More

Captain Mark is experienced and knowledgeable. We went to some upstream islands for bird watching, nature walk, and swimming at an uncrowded beach. Most enjoyable! Highly recommended.

Captain Mark was awesome. My two young sons and I booked a kids adventure, fishing trip, with them and it was great. First off, my boys had never been fishing and Captain Mark had them excited and loving it right away. His way of including the kids to feel like it's all about them is perfect. As a Dad, I... More

Our family had a wonderful sunset cruise with Captain Mark. He was great with our two children (ages 4 and 8); our shy 8 year old even quickly warmed up to Mark. Captain Mark was very friendly and knowledgable, and was a great tour guide. He was also flexible, and willing to tailor the trip to what we wanted. We... More

Captain Mark was great! He was very knowledgable, fun, and professional all at the same time. Boat was very clean, and he was very entertaining! We will definitely be going again when we can come back to town!

Another totally awesome trip with Captain House! My husband and I and our 2 kids had a blast going to lunch at Dockside and exploring Masonboro Island. Captain House knows everything about the islands and waterways. Can't beat it. And we can't wait for the next trip!!!
