We joined Captain Monty on a 2 hour tour that was very enjoyable. There were 5 of us including our two grandchildren ages 12 and 14. He was very knowledgeable about the island and this portion of the Carolina Coast. Additionally he has a good understanding of the history of the reserves. My oldest granddaughter loves horses and that was... More

Captain Monty took us on a wonderful excursion to Shackleford Banks on a windy, cold Sunday afternoon and made it very special. Our family including our 19 month old grandson enjoyed an "off the beaten track" adventure. He provided us with no end of detailed, knowledgeable commentary on the area, was anxious to accommodate our interests and was a delightful... More

My girlfriend and I spent an OUTSTANDING Sunday afternoon with Captain Monty! From initial contact to the final photo, the entire experience was amazing! Captain Monty responds to e-mails promptly and provides all the info you need to schedule your visit. He customizes the tour based on what you want to see and do, so if you want to hang... More

We are still smiling after our day with Captain Monty. Everyone in our group (ages 15 to 70) voted this the highlight of our trip. We had been to this area before with a "group tour", it is absolutely worth the cost difference to have someone show you the sights that only the locals know about. We plan to make... More

I consider myself local to the area, know the beaches pretty good, but have never had so much fun. We chartered Capt. Monty for a half day and he charmed us to no end. He is an excellent tour captain, just the right amount of fun, information and sightseeing. It was an all day Zen. He knows the region, but... More

Came to Atlantic Beach with the family and only booked one thing...Captain Monty. Best decision we made by far. He treated me, my wife and daughters (ages 7 and 4) like family from the moment of first contact a few weeks before coming down. We wanted to keep the girls entertained and boy did Captain Monty deliver. We took a... More

My mom and I recently took a trip out with Captain Monty to the Rachel Carson Preserve to see the wild horses. We began seeing wild horses within 10 minutes of arriving. Captain Monty is very knowledgeable about the history of the wild horses as well as the history of Beaufort, which my mom and I greatly enjoyed. After all... More

My daughters (aged 13, 12 and 10) and my wife and I did a half-day tour with Captain Monty on our first day of vacation in the area.

My 3 sons (ages 7, 10, and 11 years), my husband, and I took a trip with Captain Monty on Wednesday. It was awesome! My sons absolutely loved it and asked me to write a review so that others would learn about this trip. Captain Monty is incredibly knowledgeable and answered the unending questions from my kids without hesitation. We... More
