The reason I was somewhat satisfied is two things were upsetting, I understand the captain letting a child sitting and steering the wheel for a short time, but on our trip there Captain Tom let a girl steer for quite awhile. First he stood over her and would turn the wheel with her help but then he turned his back to her and the front of the boat to talk to her parents. This went on for quite awhile and we and another set of passengers didn’t appreciate it. I was getting ready to say something to him but he then took over. I didn’t pay to have a 5 year old girl to steer the boat. Then on the return trip he again let her do it, but thankfully only a short while and then he kept her eye on her. I think if you do that, it should only be less than a minute, enough for her parents to get a few pictures. The second time she steered she made a turn that made him then take over the wheel. The second thing was how upon entering Beaufort, he got in a disagreement with another boater about him going too fast causing a wake. Fingers were exchanged between him and the other boaters. Totally inappropriate. The speakers on the boat weren’t working properly, so it was hard to hear the captain talking. Other than this, we enjoyed our trip.

I enjoyed the trip and the crew did a fine job with interesting history and stories but I found the captain’s seemingly anti-government bent a bit strange for a company holding a federal govt contract. Not that I necessarily disagreed with the comments and also understand the desire to provide some local color with the stories but I’d be worried some may take that the wrong way and an overly sensitive NPS official possibly take real offense.
