Did not end up going because I’m having a hard time finding a way to book a charter or tour on a tugboat

Five us were treated to a water tour of the Cape Fear area. Captain Nancy and First Mate Doug were funny, friendly, informative and generally great tour guides as well as boatsmen. My confidence in their professional seamanship was already high since I knew both were long time members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, and I knew safety would be their first priority. I highly recommend touring on NO WAKE with Captain Nancy.

The tour went above and beyond any boat tour I have ever experienced. The Captain and her first mate were very knowledgeable and amicable. My boyfriend and I took the tour together and we both really enjoyed ourselves. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone in the Southport, NC area.

Had a great time aboard the "No Wake" with Captain Nancy and her competent first mate Shirley. The tour was extremely relaxing, and is a great way to see Southport from the water. Captain Nancy has a book of photos on a number of her adventures, and its well worth asking her to bring it out. Our favorite stories were about her dogs, and of some of the amazing things the Coast Guard has done in and around Southport. Well worth you time.

My wife and I booked a tour with Captain Nancy on our weekend getaway to celebrate out 40th wedding anniversary on April 7, 2013. Nancy and first mate Shirley were a joy to be with for our two hour tour. The courtesy they extended was first class and we had a terrific time. Captain Nancy and Shirley posess a wealth of information about the waterways, the surrounding sights and the wildlife. Just ask for the "book" and Nancy will produce a binder full of pictures, citations, bird id bands etc that will add to your enjoyment. The best $25.00 a piece you can spend at Southport and the Bald Head Island area. We had the honor of meeting 4 Coast Guard crew members while on our tour. A delight for us! We are fortunate to have such dedicated, intelligent young people protecting our country. Thanks for the great weekend to Nancy and Shirley.
