“Loads of FUN!!!”
Review of Tugboat Tours

Tugboat Tours
Reviewed 28 July 2012

If you are looking for an adventurous way to view Southport and the surrounding area from the water, give Capt. Nancy a call!! You won't regret it!! She is a qualified USCG crew member and is very knowledgeable about the area. Her tugboat, the NO WAKE, holds up to 6 passengers, and life jackets are supplied. You won't need them though- Capt. Nancy & her first mate Shirley are very skilled and very professional!! The cruise takes you through the marina, past the waterfront restaurants, and on up the Cape Fear to Price's Creek Lighthouse. From there, you will head past several islands inhabited only by birds- it is fascinating to see!! Head on to Bald Head Island for a close-up view of Old Baldy before heading back past Ft. Caswell and the Oak Island Lighthouse! On our cruise, we saw turtles and porpoises playing in the river! If you are lucky, you will even get to see a freighter up close- but don't worry, Capt. Nancy knows what she is doing and there is never any danger- just fun!! The cruise is reasonably priced at $25 per person, and it is a real bargain! If there is a certain area you want to check out, just let Capt. Nancy know. While on the cruise she discusses out various points of interest and can answer any questions you may have. This is a great cruise for the whole family- give Capt. Nancy a call today and make your reservations!! You won't regret it!!
