We took a one hour boat tour with Captain Tom onboard his beautiful Pursuit center console. He is very knowledgeable of the area and we covered a lot of area for a one hour tour. If you're looking for a great no stress ride look no further. I highly recommend Parrot Head Charters.

My boys and I (16, 16 & 8) went on the 1-hour tour and had an amazing trip. It was a great start to our next to last day in Southport. It was a windy morning but we felt safe and really enjoyed seeing all the boats, birds, lighthouses and islands. We learned so much about the area and helped us learn what/where we want to visit the next time we are in Southport/Oak Island. We highly recommend Captain Tom and Parrot Head Charters! It is definitely worth the trip!

We just finished a “slow” 2 hour tour with Captain Tom, and loved it. We had our 5 & 8 year old girls, and my husband’s parents with us - a total of 6. Tom was right on time, easy to work with, and shared just enough information to keep the tour interesting for everyone, without being a lecture. We’ve been visiting our family here for 10 years, and this is probably the most fun outing we’ve had in the area. Highly recommend Parrot Head Charters for a lovely time on the water.

My wife and I took our two grandsons (age 8 and 9). All of us had a great cruise. Captain Tom was very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. We took the two hour tour and it was the perfect amount of time. Viewing sites from the water gives a new perspective. Looking forward to going out again. Thanks again Captain Tom, we recommend Parrot Head Charters highly.

My little grandsons had a wonderful “slow” cruise with Captain Tom aboard his nice comfortable day cruiser. We were pleased with his easy manner and capability, and we all enjoyed his comments and history as we toured the Southport waterfront and even went to see Old Baldy lighthouse at Bald Head Island. We reserved the cruise for only an hour, but we all felt it was long enough for “starters” with the youngsters. This is a GREAT add-on to a visit to this charming and quaint spot.... would definitely book in with the Parrot Head 3 if time permits! Betsy I.
