The Topsail Island water excursion consists of meeting your Captain on the dock and heading out in a calm harbor in Hampstead, then down the ICWW (Inter Coastal Water Ways). Here you can enjoy the views of Topsail Island by water, spot a dolphin, birds of prey, etc. Then we can pull into a small alcove/ tributary and onto an uninhabited Lea Island across from Serenity point at Topsail Beach. Here one can collect shells, fish or play in tide pools, or just take in the view of the ocean coming through the Inlet surrounded by NC pristine beaches. After we will depart Lea Island and continue back via waterways and marsh channels. We can adjust on the go if you want to do or see other things or do other activities. Kids either like to drive the boat or tube. In the end we will end up back on the dock in Hampstead. Or if you want to be dropped off in Wrightsville Beach, Surf City or Topsail Beach. Lets be creative and see the sights in a unique way. The trip will last 3 hours. Hang on to your hats, lets have some fun on the water. Welcome Aboard.

Over 20 years as a certified U.S. Coast Guard Captain, what they call in the biz "The Yacht Captain". I am actively managing and Captaining larger Private Yachts from Florida to New York (yeah, like the "Below Deck" show). When home I have been giving boat tours of the local Topsail, Surf City and Wilmington area to my AirBNB guests for the past 4 years. I enjoy taking people out on the water and offering a high quality cruise on NC waters. Welcome aboard as guests and depart as friends!
