Boat Safety Tips

Boating options On the crystal coast

Buy a Boat

This is obviously the most costly option and not always possible.  I've heard that financing can be reasonable, but after that you must consider possible boat trailer, boat storage, dock fees, gas, and maintenance.

Phone a Friend

They say the thing that is even better than having a boat is having a friend (or family member) with a boat.  If you are lucky enough to be invited on a boat, remember to ask what you can bring and that you are typically on the captain's schedule.  

Call Fins2Feathers

My good friend, Luis Herron, would be happy to customize the day trip of your dreams. Luis is awesome.  By the end of the trip, he'll be your friend, too!  Call or message Luis to book a trip:  252-646-9730.

Rent a Boat

I wish our area had a "boating club" like I've heard about in other areas, but we do have places where you can rent a boat.  Ask google!

Take the LookOut Catamaran Cruise

I've taken this several times and it is very enjoyable and easy!  If you take the all day trip, lunch is catered by Beaufort Grocery.  What more can you ask?!

Book a Ferry

Ferry services are available to and from several locations!

Go to Radio Island

Probably the closest feeling to being a boat that you can get without actually being on a boat.  Accessible by car.  Located between Morehead City and Beaufort.  Bathrooms are available.
