What are your Memorial Day weekend plans?

Posted on: May 22nd, 2017 by Charles (Rip) Vanwinkle No Comments


Hey y’all!


We are super excited for this weekend! It’s the “kickoff” of the summer season and we have numerous kayak tours going out. If you’re looking for a fun adventure over the weekend, you’re in luck! We have some availability on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Tubbs Inlet tours. Enjoy your morning on the water with us and still have enough time to spare for a full afternoon on the beach. There is also a kayaking Twilight Tour scheduled for Saturday evening at 6:30pm. This is honestly one of the most breathtaking ways to catch the sunset on the water.


Not interested in kayaking? No worries! Sunset Cruises on the charter boat are also available. Watch the sunset and relax as your Capt. cruises you around the waterway. It’s still possible to see a dolphin or two! Half-day and full-day fishing charters are are the schedule too. Let’s cast some lines together!


If you have any questions or want to book a tour before they fill up, call or text 910.833.2418. These tours are filling up quickly and this weekend is going to be beautiful on the water!

Spring Break 2017

Posted on: April 12th, 2017 by Charles (Rip) Vanwinkle

The weathers gods have certainly shined down upon us this spring break. The water is warming ahead of schedule, the winds are light and variable and the tides are moderate. All of which adds up to perfect paddling conditions. Dolphins have been in abundance in the waterways and bald eagles have been seen fishing on most trips. These trips are extremely kid friendly. We stop at secluded beaches on each trip to get out and explore and look for shells and critters or just to stretch our legs. Food and snacks are welcome and there is always time and opportunity for a nice break. Give us a call at 910-833-2418 to book your spring break adventure.
