Expected to find more shells. Last year was dropped off at the inlet and had more shells than I could carry.
Wet Skiff ride. Bigger boat was better
The trip was good. Just would suggest that the four hour trip doesn't give time to take the beach shuttle out to the point. That was a big reason we wanted to go to Lookout was for the shells and when called to make reservations, it was not mentioned that there wouldn't be time to get to the point.
A little more time at Cape Lookout would have been nice. We were rushed to get back to the boat on time. Our captain, Tom was awesome! Really enjoyed listening to his stories about the area.
the boat ride took 1 hr+, but was advertised as being 45 minutes
Thank you for a great experience! Captain Tom was knowledgeable and fun, and we learned so much more than we expected! The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was the boat itself. The captain was great and we felt perfectly safe at all times, but we thought "ferry" implied a bigger boat. We had no idea it was a tiny boat with no roof or tarp until the confirmation email said it would be a "20 passenger skiff". It would have been nice to know before paying. We got wet but that was actually fun and no big deal. We will definitely book again and maybe try the ferry from Harker's next time. Thanks Captain Tom!
You need to do a better job to describe the boat and how wet you will get if it is rough. We got there safe and back but the boat from Beaufort to the Lookout I would expect most days to be bumpy and wet, not described this way in your ad.
Our tour guide was very informative and friendly. It was a beautiful day, I just wished there were seats instead of benches to sit on. I wanted to look out at the water during the ride, but had to twist around to do so. On a short ride it's no big deal, but this was the longer ride. Other than that it was great!
