“Relaxing and Informative”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

My wife and I were in New Bern visiting my daughter and her familty. When we started looking for something to do, at a reasonable price, we happened on this cruise. We weren't disappointed. The boat is a large, comfortable catamaran that takes a leisurely trip up the Neuse and Trent Rivers. The Captain also served as tour guide as he provided a very informative history of New Bern and the surrounding area. I had no idea that New Bern played such a large part in the history of North Carolina and that there so many interesting people who lived in the area. I would recommend this trip to families or couples who want a peaceful sightseeing tour. The dock is accessible and the parking is free.

“Great Experience!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

My family and I were looking for something different to do so...we came upon this tour boat of New Bern and went for it. So glad we did! We all had a great time, the narrator was very informative and the staff super friendly. This was really my thing... a nice relaxing ride and a great way to check out New Bern without dealing traffic and my legs really needed the rest. The only thing I was missing was a glass of wine...

“Tour New Bern by Boat!”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

Went on a trip with my family to New Bern ,NC. Wanted to do something different. Had done the trolly tour in the past. Found a brochure for the Lookout Lady, a tour boat on the waterfront. Went on the tour and my family and I loved it. Would highly recommend. Learned alot and the boat ride itself was so nice and relaxing. Definitely something different to do. We loved this!
