What you'll do

I offer a private water shuttle service. I will take up to six guests on a private excursion or a sunset cruise. We often enjoy seeing dolphins and nesting ospreys. Prices vary on the private excursions based on the number of guests and the duration of the trip.
Sunset cruises in the evening are also very popular. The sunset Cruise is from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm and is $300. If you want to book the sunset cruise you must use the private group booking. The time for the sunset Cruise varies as the time of sunset changes throughout the year. Due to covid 19 I am only doing sunset cruises and private excursions at this time.

Earl was great. Boat was clean and comfortable. The giant bean bags worked great for extra seats on the front deck. We had a great tour, perfectly on schedule, caught a beautiful sunset, and saw dolphins up close. Wonderful experience.

The sunset cruise was more than we expected. It was the highlight of our trip. We saw a lot of dolphins and highly recommend this experience.

This was a fantastic experience! Earl was great and we saw lots of dolphins. It was too cloudy to see the sunset but still a great trip. We brought our dog and it wasn’t an issue, he had a fantastic time as well!

The sunset cruise with Dave/Earl was an absolute blast and the highlight to our trip! We booked this to celebrate a birthday and had an extremely fun time! Seeing the sunset, swimming in the warm water, sight seeing dolphins and beautiful different parts of obx were a few of our favorites! Dave had bean bags for us to sit on which were an awesome plus. We could also hook up our music to the blue tooth. 10/10 recommend this excursion: )

We had a wonderful time!! Earl is super friendly and knowledgeable. We saw tons of dolphins and even though we had to do a slightly shorter trip (issues on our end), Earl was super flexible, accommodating, and we still felt like we got a great experience. We surprised my mom with this for her birthday and she couldn’t have been happier.

We met Earl for the sunset cruise and had a wonderful time. Our expectations were definitely exceeded. Earl was so kind and knowledgeable about the area. We highly recommend him.
