Great time tubing. Excellent driver and tour guide! Very accommodating with young children and adults. Also had fun at his recommendation for ice cream and mini-golf at Fantasy Isle.

Captain Scott was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. Our family of 4 had such a great time! We had a 2 hour tour and had some tubing fun. He let our kids "drive" the boat which they loved. We saw some lovely wildlife including 2 dolphins and one jumping stingray!

Had another amazing trip with Captain Scott and this time Shellby got to come too! Captain Scott is very knowledgable about the area, a very safe boater and an all around great guide! I loved celebrating my 30th birthday with a trip to Monk Island on Holden Beach West end. Give him a call to schedule a boat ride where... More

Captain Scott is truly the nicest and most knowledgeable guide our family has had in all the years we have traveled to Holden Beach. We have booked a trip with him for 4 of the past 5 years and regret the one year we missed out. Whether you are interested in exploring remote beaches for shells and nature, cruising up... More

We had a wonderful morning with Captain Scott for the third year in a row! He knows the rivers, the animals, the birds, and the plants on a first name basis. We enjoyed a 3.5 hour ride up the Lockwood Folly River and got to see alligators, bald eagles, jumping stingrays and many birds. Captain Scott can tell you about... More

I bought my husband a 3 hour Intercoastal cruise with Captain Scott for his birthday. He picked us up at the boat dock of the house we were renting. We felt comfortable with him from the beginning. He is so easy to talk to. We asked him questions the entire time. He knows everything about the area. We went to... More

I read a review on Trip Advisor about Captain Scott and decided to call him and book a tour while vacationing at Holden Beach. Our tour included knowledge of the area, wildlife, and sea life. We experienced dolphins, eagles and osprey. He is truly passionate about nature. A very enjoyable morning/afternoon with personal attention from Captain Scott.

Booked an early morning cruise up the inlet to the freshwater swamps, it was beautiful. He can tell you about the birds, fish, and life here that is entertaining and informative. We've been vacationing here for ten years and found out more details in three hours with Captain Scott on his cruise. He even answered questions my husband had on... More

We were looking for a water taxi from Holden Beach to Southport. Scott was more than accommodating. We weren't able to go because of the small craft advisory. But, he was calling and emailing to keep us updated and offering other options. We'll be in contact when we go next time! :)
