We have bounced up and down the Carolina coast for years collecting treasured memories on beaches, fishing boats, parasailing, hitting the surf and over-eating at great restaurants!!! Wonderful days indeed. And yet for this last Carolina Beach trip we wanted something unique. Chartering the Ava Grace and Captain Pete turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Captain Pete and First Mate Dale took us out into the open sea, up along Wrightsville Beach and finished it off by cruising down through the intercoastal waterway back to the marina.
The kids got to sit up at the bow and of course Captain Pete had them man the helm to cement their experiences. Eating our packed lunches on the bow gave us more time to spot dolphins and other sea life.

Fishing boat options abound at Carolina Beach but chartered sailing options are limited. Especially if you want to go out on a larger boat. The Ava Grace has cover from the sun, a working bathroom (head), and plenty of room above and below deck. Also, she has state of the art sea-going gizmos to dazzle any kid normally glued to Minecraft.

Yes, we will be going out again!
