Last week my wife and I joined two other couples on a sunset cruise with Captain Les Pendleton and his lovely wife Suzanne. What a nice evening. In talking with Les, we found out that he is the author of quite a few books, both fiction and non-fiction. One in particular, 1600 Trump Avenue, is a great read. We highly... More

Don't choose to go on either the bus tour or the sail. Experience both! Les and Susanne are wonderful guides. The bus tour is both fun and educational and is a big help for both deciding what to do and where to find it. Take this tour as soon as you can after you arrive. The sail is less tour... More

Lez and Suzanne are great communicators - keeping us up to date on the weather changes. Once we got word we had a great time, they give you freedom to move around and as you sail they educate you on the surroundings. Highly Recommended!

We had a wonderful evening and The captain and his wife were wonderful, making the trip most enjoyable. We had never been on a sailboat before and are thankful we made this choice. I only wish the trip included closer views and information around New Bern. We will definitely plan to do this again when we are in the area.

My husband, brother-in-law and I enjoyed a great 1.5 hour cruise on the 41' "Two Peas" on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. We had originally booked for Saturday, but we had to reschedule due to tropical storm Hermine, which was still making itself felt on Saturday. But Sunday was perfect! It wasn't too hot, too breezy or too calm.... More
