Delightful, family-friendly cruise along the Trent River. Captain Jack and Marilyn filled us in on local history and the surrounding fauna and flora! Boat is comfortable and shady. Cold bottled water provided. We will definitely go again if we are back in New Bern!

Captain Jack and Mate Marilyn entertained us as we smoothly cruised seeing beautiful waters, homes and nature. It was a relaxing and very enjoyable evening adventure. It was like spending an evening with old friends.

We took this tour on a Friday morning and it was relaxing and informative. Jack and Marilyn are an interesting couple who are very good at sharing their knowledge of boating and New Bern. An enjoyable morning.
