Board the 24-passenger Prince of Tides from the Downtown Marina of Beaufort for a scenic tour or to celebrate a special occasion with family and friends. We offer regularly scheduled daily tours, evening cruises,  and private tours and charters. 

Save with a combination carriage-boat ticket.

 Trips Available:

Our regular tour departs daily at 2:00 pm;  it is approximately an hour and 15 minutes, longer if we get into lots of dolphins!

We leave the Downtown Marina at the Beaufort Waterfront Park and make our way up river past the historic Old Point neighborhood to Pleasant Point Plantation.  Along the way, passengers are provided information about the homes, the ecology, and the wildlife.  We almost  always see dolphins.

We also offer evening/sunset cruises departing Tuesdays and Saturdays at 5:45pm. These are approximately two hours and departures vary seasonally.  Please call for schedules.  Small coolers are welcome on these.

Evening cruises: all seats 24.00.

These will resume when Daylight Savings Time returns.
