Reawaken your inner traveler.  Adventure awaits.  Exploration: the action of traveling in or through an unfamiliar area in order to learn about it.  H2O Captain Eco-Tour Private Boat Excursions is an authorized permittee of the National Park Service's Cape Lookout National Seashore to be able to perform boat tours on water and on land guide services to view the wild horses and discover great shelling on Shackleford Banks, our MOST POPULAR excursion.

Our Private Boat Tours last 2 to 12 hours depending on which excursions you choose. The itinerary is flexible. 

•    The typical departure time is 11:00 am from our new home on the protected and quiet waters of Coral Bay Marina in Morehead City. From this departure point, you will ride on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to see the wild horses and look for seashells on Shackleford Banks or Sand Dollar Island, go to the Cape Lookout Lighthouse or other destinations, for example, Beaufort, Swansboro or Oriental. So many options click here.
• H2O Captain Eco-Tour Private Boat Excursions offers eco-conscious terrestrial and marine life sightseeing and walking tours along the Crystal Coast. From our wild horses to enjoying pods of Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins along with an occasional sea turtle during the day as well as during our Sunset Cruises.
• Our boats' design offers all passengers a safe ride and optimal comfort. Onboard the boat, guests will be delighted with the open-air views from all seats, with its wrap-around walkway. The easy-to-use boarding ladder is a great way for guests to literally wade into the clear coastal waters and quickly get back aboard. We use our boat with the guest experience being top of mind. Welcome aboard!

• H2O Captain is NOT a ferry boat! Passengers can see and talk with each other as well as with the Captain, and can sit very comfortably for an extended period of time, hence, Captain Mark can even set up a dining table for your Sunset Cruise or lunch if you wish to dine on the H2O Captain Ultra Elite boat!
•  To get out of the heat of the sun or Mother Nature's rain, we have a bimini to stand under.
•  In addition, any excursion going to engage in discovering great shelling will receive as their keepsake, an official H2O Captain shelling bag!
