Mission StatementH2O 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 tours on water and on land to view the wild horses of Shackleford Banks, our MOST POPULAR excursion, and, The Cape Lookout Lighthouse. 

Our Private Boat Tours lasts 4+ hours. The tour itinerary is flexible. The typical departure time is 11:00am with all accommodated on cushioned seats. Nothing like a padded seat to absorb the waves! The best days of the week to create a wonderful memory are weekdays.  Excursions start at $399.

We offer the best way to safely social distance, to be your stress reliever, and to consider your health & wellness.  Please know that Captain Mark has already received both doses of the C-19 vaccine.

There are plenty of ways to enjoy our many miles of shoreline. By walking on the uncrowded beach while seeing our wild horses on Shackleford, take a scenic boat ride down the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to Swansboro, hopefully, see a pod of bottlenose dolphins (Flipper), or enjoy going round the waterfronts of the quaint and historic towns of Beaufort and Morehead City, and viewing the Rachel Carson Preserve, not to mention crossing the Beaufort Inlet while you see and feel the North Atlantic Ocean as you explore all from the comfort of our Carolina Skiff 21 foot Ultra Elite Series with pickups in either Beaufort, Morehead City, or Atlantic Beach.

You will be greeted by Captain Mark and his 1st Mate "Lucky" the dog.  "Lucky is amazing, I love that dog!!!  He can be in my boat anytime.” –Captain Jose P.  Should you be allergic, Lucky will wait on land.

We believe in the power of bringing water and people together. This is why our excursions create compelling memories that deliver life-changing experiences!  Welcome Aboard, Enjoy the Excursions!

Cruisin' Tiki Boat BeaufortH2O Date: March 11
A brand new "boat," well sort of a boat...It's a Tiki Bar afloat that is now in the water in Beaufort, NC.  Captain Mark was one of the first 2 passengers aboard.  It was a total of 3 Captains out for a spin on Taylor Creek with the Shack Ferry looking on, the Watercraft Centre doing a double-take and clicking photos while boaters coming alongside with the thumbs-up signal.  Not to mention the people at the marina wondering how this boat stays afloat!

This is strictly BYOB.  Then the Captain and the up to 6 passengers will provide all the fun.   Literally the new "watering hole" in Beaufort.   Captain Mark has now established himself as one of the senior Captains aboard Beaufort's Tiki Bar Boat!  https://www.facebook.com/cruisintikisbeaufort
