Why We're Different From Other Tour Boats

  • We carry a maximum of 6 passengers which allows for an intimate atmosphere on your cruise.
  • We don't do fishing charters, therefore, we are more flexible in scheduling your event. 
  • Reduced operating costs that are passed on to you in the form of lower rates.
  • We  depart from the Southport Marina, in Southport, NC
  • For your convenience, for an additional charge, we can pick you up almost anywhere along the waterfront that has safe access by boat and car. (See examples on the right. Call us for other locations.)

See the sights from a different perspective.

Tom's more than 56 years of boating experience and Joan's 33 years of teaching team up to complement each other as they share information about points of interest both on and off the water. Their "On-the-water Limousine Service" enables you to treat your family, grandchildren, and guests to unique experiences tailored to your needs, including (but not limited to), dolphin watching, boating to restaurants for lunch or dinner, sunrise and sunset cruises, wedding events, or just getting out to view waterfront properties for purchase consideration. We operate out of the Souhtport Marina but, for an additional charge, can pick you up almost anywhere along the waterfront that has safe access by boat and car. (See our Why We're Different From Other Tour Boats in the box below or call us for costs for other locations.)

Capt. Tom (a U. S. Coast Guard licensed captain) and his wife Joan provide non-fishing excursions/boat rides for vacationers and residents on Parrot Head II, showing parties of up to 6, the sights of the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), Southport, Oak Island, Bald Head Island, Holden Beach, Wilmington and the Cape Fear and Lockwood Folly Rivers from a uniquely different perspective that only the waterfront can provide. Cruises have included lunch and dinner boat trips to restaurants in Wilmington, Southport, Ocean Isle Beach, and Bald Head Island. A special treat on any trip comes when we are visited by our local dolphins.
