This is a nice boat ride to Masonboro Island. We were with a group of kids (a school fieldtrip). The captain and all of his employees were very knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor. The students learned about ecosystems, conservation, and history.

Capt.Jack & 1st mate Hal were both really funny and congenial. Gorgeous views and well worth the price.
