Living in New Bern for over 15 years, my husband and I are always looking for something unique to do when the grandkids visit. Well we found one of the best activities so far. We took a two-hour sail this weekend with Les and Suzanne on their 41' sailboat the Two Peas and the weather was perfect! The two grandsons took turns at the helm while the adults relaxed and enjoyed our first sailing trip on the Neuse River. Les and Suzanne are experienced, knowledgeable sailors and gracious hosts. Can't wait to get some friends together for the sunset sail!

Les and Suzanne took us to historic downtown New Bern on a guided driving tour. They highlighted all the major landmarks and explained the significance of each. A lot of information in a 2 hour tour. Later that evening, we took their Sunset Sail aboard their 41 foot sailboat, Two Peas. A 2 hour relaxing sail along the Neuse River. This couple works well together and makes their guests feel welcomed and comfortable on their tours.

We took the Beauport tour with Les & Suzanne, and the sunset cruise on their sailboat.
The tour was filled with all the facts about this beautiful historic seaport. Fun & interesting!

Don't miss going on their beautiful sailboat at sunset. A great experience!

For my birthday, my wife arranged a day of sailing with Les and Suzanne of Palm Coast Tours. As a sailor with over 35 years experience, I can say this was definitely the best day sailing trip I've ever taken, and Les and Suzanne made it not only a real treat, but a learning experience as well, with their extensive knowledge of the local area. If you're in New Bern, and like the water, this is a "must do" while you're there. Highly recommended!

Les and Suzanne hit just the right amount of informative and entertaining in this overview of New Bern, and no one ever had a problem hearing every word. I think there were a dozen of us that filled their little tour van, and that was just right, too.
