TugBoat Cruises of New Bern, NC











Just wanted you to know we really enjoyed our tugboat cruise Sat. April 27, 2013! Our captain was Peter J. He was a wonderful guide & a pleasure to be with!    Bill & Kay



Hi,  We were fortunate to have taken your cruise with Peter last week.  There were 6 of us with my daughter and her family. ( husband and 2 children)   Peter was outstanding creating an informative and fun trip for all.  I would recommend to anyone that likes a good time.  The best,  -  Bill  New Bern, NC


We had a small overnight planned to New Bern and not much in particular to do. I found the info for the Tugboat Cruise on the New Bern visitors guide and thought it sounded perfect. We have four small children, so the 30 minute tour was just perfect for us. Our captain, Albert, toured us around, pointed out some sights, shared some funny stories and let the kids take turns driving the boat! This was absolutely the best part of our short stay. It was a unique and enjoyable experience and gave us a fantastic perspective of New Bern from the water. The boat moves slowly, so it is comfortable and relaxing. There are longer tours offered which are probably great for families with older children, or small groups of adults. - Christine, Raleigh, NC



The trip was amazing!  Peter was an awesome Captain and a great guy to be around. We could not have asked for a better day and a better Captain!  We will definitely recommend your tour to all of our friends and family. Thank you very much for this experience and please thank Captain Peter for the wonderful evening. - Olivia, Roanoke Rapids , NC



Really enjoyed the trip! Thanks! - Ashley



Thank you for a great time last night.  Apple, Cary, NC



LOVED LOVED LOVED my TugBoat Cruise. It was a beautiful night and the sun setting over the water was just AMAZING. Thank You Jim and Captain Peter for a lovely evening on the River!

To anyone visiting New Bern...I HIGHLY recommend taking time for a cruise with TugBoat Cruises. Everyone on my Facebook page love the pictures I posted of the cruise.  Again, I had a delightful time. - Karen, Thomasville, NC
