Visit pristine beaches, view Banker horses & more in this Beaufort floating tiki bar cruise

Our new “Carrot Island Swim Stop” trip allows you and your group extra time to not only see Beaufort, but to have your Captain safely beach the tiki boat so you can walk the sands of Town Marsh and Carrot Island or simply enjoy the water longer! Shackleford Banks is part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore, and as such has no permanent development, leaving its pristine beaches and unique Banker horses untouched by the noise of modern times. They are a wonderful place for a hike, sightseeing, or even a calm day at the beach where you boat over, toss out an anchor, and enjoy the weather.

Our excellent captains can accommodate a variety of requests: Bird Shoal (on the backside of Carrot Island) is quick and easy to get to – weather permitting – and allows for swimming and relaxing while watching for ponies. On this longer tour, we can also take you around the tip of Bird Shoals where you can see Shackleford Banks – all you have to do is ask!
