“Great Service!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Just got back from Cape Lookout. Used Calico Jack for the trip over and it was GREAT! My 6 yr old grandson enjoyed the ferry ride as much as he enjoyed the island. We saw wild horses, dolphins and when we got on the island he got to hold a baby loggerhead trutle that the ranger on the island had found. These people are great to work with you on your needs. Highly recommend. Thanks guys for the excellent job!

“A great ferry service”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Always use this ferry service when visiting the Cape Lookout seashore. Very good service, and reasonable rates. Call ahead to make sure you will get a spot on the boat. A trusted company for years.

“Cheap, efficient, & friendly.”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

We called several ferry services looking for the best value & a way for only 2 people to get out to the cape lookout (on an off season Friday). This ferry was the only courteous & helpful one we talked to! For this reason we went to calico jacks & as we passed the other ferris we noticed they were really slow. When we got to this one he was running 4 boats! We got over to the cape right away (no wait) & he stopped in route to let us take some pictures of the horses. They were timely, friendly & only $10! We would absolutely use this service again.

“Great service and dog friendly”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We read the reviews before coming to Harker's Island and decided that Calico Jacks was definetely the ferry service to choose. We loved our experience! We took this ferry for two round trips- once to Cape Lookout and we enjoyed it so much we went the next day over to Shakleford Banks. We arrived first thing in the morning both days and were happy there were other customers to share the fare with- otherwise it wouldve been too expensive for just the two of us. Mike was our ferry operator and he was so friendly and welcoming which really added to our trip. Our dog was also welcome on board and she had a blast with the breeze in her fur. Mike stopped close to Shackleford Banks so we could see the wild horses which was a nice touch!
