Had a blue sky day, boat left at 3:00 p.m. for a 2 hour tour on a Friday. The Captain was knowledgeable on the history of New Bern as well as up to date on New Bern happenings. The river was very beautiful and calming, a great way to start the weekend.
Seen lovely homes on the Trent River to include Nicholas Sparks home and his ex-wife's house which was being built down river. A comment was made by someone who hadn't been to New Bern in a long time about "he had forgotten how much money was in New Bern". Seen an old plantation home, seen the property owned by heirs of the Minge (Pepsi Owners) and the heirs to the Hanes underwear property. Lovely homes and docks, alot of history about Union Point and the Civil War in New Bern, learned about the old drawbridge and the new drawbridge as well as Former Governor Perdue's help with the new bridge.
Great time, great people on the tour. I learned about the Armed Forces Vacation Club from a couple visiting from Ohio. Will have a chance to go on vacation soon.

Smooth riding boat with a narrated tour. See homes (Nicholas Sparks), wildlife and some local attractions from the Nuese & Trent rivers. $25 was a good value.

Very calm and informative ride. You see a lot of the buildings from the rivers. 2 hour cruise is too long for small children unless you bring drinks and snacks.

Awesome boat tour. Great captain and first mate. Two hour tour that went through both the Trent and Neuse Rivers. Great history lessons about New Bern.

Took our 3 kids on this tour and so happy we did it. It had been very hot there the whole week we were there and I was not sure I would be comfortable going with the heat. The boat was covered so you are not in direct sunlight. The tour guide was great, he is from Ohio (I think) and recently moved to new bern full time. He was full of knowledge and so funny, he and the captain had a good rapport and made us feel very comfortable. He gave ideas of where to eat and visit while there. This is something I would do again. Highly recommend.
