We want to say Thank you very much for such a fabulous job the whole crew aboard the Crystal Coast Lady did for us Saturday night for our Wedding. It was the fairy tale wedding that we had always dreamed of. I have never had such a more professional crew to work with. Every detail was taken care of and we could not ask for any better of time. It was truly an unforgettable event. Thanks very much for making our dreams come true! - Brian & Karen K.

We went on the dolphin cruise when we were on vacation June 9th, and the 10th. We did 1/2 day fishing. There was 4 of us we had so much fun, I would like to thank the captain for making me at ease. I was afraid of getting the motion sickness, he guaranteed me I wouldn't get sick. He was right. If you want to have fun just call the Crystal Coast Lady. - Marcia P.

Thanks so much to your whole crew on the Crystal Coast Lady on Saturday Aug 20th. Our wedding reception was very memorable thanks to your crew. The cruise was wonderful and relaxing and my guests all had the best time. It was a beautiful end to our funfilled wedding day. - Sherry N.
We wanted to thank you for all the generosity you showed our seven year old son Kyle during our pirate cruise on Thursday. You and your crew were most kind in showing him a great time both aboard and ashore. Not often a 7 year old gets to wheel a cruise boat out of a harbor! Since I stayed closer to the boat with our oldest son Ryan it was only when I downloaded my wife's pictures from the treasure hunt did I fully realize the full kindness and effort of the entire crew. They carried Kyle on their shoulders greatly helping him get through the deep sand ensuring he could focus on having fun and being a seven year old boy. Once more, a heartfelt thank you from my entire family. We we're lucky to find such a crew. Fair winds and following seas.... -Bob, Ruth, Ryan, Noah, and little Kyle (aka Squeak)
On behalf of the Marine Corp OCS/Basic School Class, I would like to thank you and your staff for a wonderful afternoon cruise Friday. The boat looked great, the staff was wonderful, the heavy hors d'oeuvers were excellent, and the cruise was informative and entertaining. Of our reunion events, your cruise was my personal favorite. If our reunion returns to the Cherry Point area, I am certain we will look forward to another cruise with you. -Joe S.
All of my classmates had a great time on the cruise. We thought the food on the buffet was delicious and the captain and crew were very accomodating. A lot of people have said they would like to do the cruise again on our next reunion in 5 years. As you can see, we really enjoyed the evening. Having grown up in Beaufort and spending thousands of hours swimming, boating and playing on Taylor's Creek and Carrot Island, the cruise down Taylor's Creek, "The Cut" as we have always called it, was especially enjoyable to me. We all think that the Crystal Coast Lady is a great asset for Beaufort and the Crystal Coast. -David ECHS Class ReunionOn Apri 25, 22 (New Bern) newcomers headed to Beaufort and boarded the Crystal Coast Lady cruise boat along Front Street. We just about had the boat to ourselves so it was easy to move about the double-deck craft. Shortly after leaving the dock, the captain pointed out some historic homes in Beaufort including the home of Blackbeard the pirate. Turning about, he told us to be on the lookout for wild horses on Carrot Island. As we were enjoying our buffet-style lunch on board, the captain spotted a few Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and everyone scurried portside to see them. Then, further up on Carrot Island, we saw a lone wild horse drinking water along the bank. What began as a chilly, cloudy Wednesday turned out to be a beautiful sunny, brisk afternoon on the blue-green waters of the Crystal Coast!- Jerry and Susan
Our family threw my fiance and I an engagement party on the Crystal Coast Lady last week and it was amazing! We had a group of 70-80, the boat was rented out for our party, had a dj, lots of wonderful food and two bars. The staff on the boat was absolutely wonderful, incredibly attentive and made our experience one we will never forget. Our guests has a great time and we would recommend this cruis ship and staff to anyone looking for a special party, event or evening. Best engagement party ever! Thank you Crystal Coast Lady Cruises! -Ashley W
Boarding the Crystal Coast Lady with heavy heart on June 6, knowing my friend died only four days ealier, I sought solitude and headed for the uper deck. When the Captain motioned me into the cabin I forgot everything but being on a boat on the water. That day I became so in tune with Mother Nature and happier than I can ever recall. If I overstayed my time there, asked too many questions or rambled, please forgive me. But THANK YOU for allowing me to do so. You did a very good deed. Please forgive me if I was slow in departing. Thank you for geting my purse for me and thank you especially for returning my solar shades left behind left behind in excitement over the cruise. Standing on the Inlet Inn's widow's walk the follwoing morning, knowing I may never return, a bit of my heart sailed away too. But I brought home memories of the most wonderful time I can ever recall having experienced. Again thank you for your kindness. - Ruth
This was our second trip to the crystal coast, and loved shelling on Shackleford banks. The last time we were there we used another company that just dropped us off. Then we found this brochure for this company at first we were a little nervous going on a "pontoon boat", but when we got there it happened to be quite a surprise. It was by far the highlight of our vacation. Capt. Georgie and Doug were the most friendliest and fun crew we have ever met. From the time we left the port to the time we returned Capt. Georgie had us laughing the whole time. Doug went above and beyond to ensure we had a great trip, from teaching us about wild ponys to the history of the island. It was a great experience!!! We are coming back to the crystal coast next year and are deffinatly making trips with these guys. By far the best tour company in the business!!!!- lane6fly
