My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing cruise with Capt. Dave and another family. The weather was perfect and Capt. did an excellent job pointing out sites to see and sharing some of the local history. We’ll definitely be back!

Thank jeliker

The captain was really nice and knowledgeable about the area and its history. We were a little undressed (the water was a lot colder than we expected) and the captain had comfy blankets for us. Had a great time and would definitely do it again.

What a calm and relaxing way to see New Bern from a different perspective and learn about the rivers, the locale, and the history that shapes the area! Captain Dave is a veritable fountain of information, shares details on topics tailored to the questions and interests of his passengers, and clearly communicates an appreciation for the Trent and Neuse Rivers. We visited in November which is outside the peak tourist time for the NewBern area, but we were warmly received and made to feel welcome. The pontoon boat your was a true highlight of our visit! As we were returning to the dock, the signal sounded to indicate that the draw bridge would be raised, and seeing that from the river was a unique event for us.

We had a wonderful experience on our sunset cruise with Captain Dave, enjoying a relaxing trip up the Trent River along with snippets of information he provided on the waterfront homes. Captain Dave then headed up the Neuse and positioned us for a dead-on view of the setting sun perfectly framed between church steeples. What a great way to see New Bern!
