“Great trip! This was a great cruise! .”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

We booked a sunset cruise on the Solomon T because of the reviews on Tripadvisor. What a great decision, I looked like a genius to my family. Bert and Becky were excellent tour guides, very informative, but also extremely personable. We were very appreciative of their knowledge and experience handling the boat. I would whole heartedly recommend them, and schedule another tour with them when we are in Southport again.

“Wonderful Tour”
Reviewed 29 June 2011

We recently had the privilege of taking a sunset tour aboard the Solomon T. I traveled with my 19 year old son and his girlfriend and we all had a wonderful time. Captain Bert and his lovely wife were so knowledgeable about the history of Southport and the surrounding area. We have a part time residence on Oak Island and have been visiting the area since 2004 and love to gather as much history as we can. Captain Bert and Becky asked us what we were interested in and then they took us to our particular areas of interest. Along the way we learned so many new things about the history of the Southport area. Just at sunset we were able to see two huge cargo ships pass each other on the Cape Fear. That was really a sight to see! The boat is wonderfully restored and makes for a very comfortable ride. You will definitely want to add a Solomon T tour to your list of things to do when you visit Oak Island.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 25 June 2011

We recently booked a tour with Bert & Becky. We love the Southport-Oak Island area and envy those with boats and sailing know-how and have wanted to get out on the water ourselves. On our last visit our 2 year old son decided he wanted to go ride in "mama's boat" and was persistent over several days in his request. Luckily we came across the Solomon T tours. Bert & Becky recommended doing a shortened tour to give our little one a taste of sailing on the river. They were patient with him and helped us get him into a life vest. We saw an osprey nest and lots of other boats which delighted our son to no end. Becky had some great sea life toys which he enjoyed looking at too. We look forward to taking another tour with them soon!

“GREAT BOAT RIDE”
Reviewed 23 April 2011

Call ahead to schedule. We had a great time! We were a party of four, inc. 2 teenagers. We were lucky enough to see a family of dolphins off Oak Is. Capt. Bert is a fantastic guide. Ask him anything about local history or environment. Don't forget to ask him about a local canine hero, Bamboo a little terrier.
