Learn, Discover and Explore the natural wonders of the Carolina Coast.

We offer family tours around Wrightsville Beach. Birding, fishing, and sunset cruises are our speciality, but we love school groups and wedding charters too!

megaATTENTION: Wrightsville Beach Specials

Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours has resumed our fall schedule post Hurricane Florence. Our staff and boats all made it through the storm safely, but the dock did not. Please call us to make reservations and we will tell you where to meet us!

Others were not as lucky as we were, and so for the rest of the year we will be donating 5% of our proceeds to local charities contributing to hurricane relief. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

FALL into Birding!

The weather is starting to change, and so are the birds on Wrightsville Beach and Masonboro Island! Join renowned ornithologist Capt. Joe Abbate on a Birding Cruise and explore the marshes and see which species are stopping by our area on their migration! You never know what you may see!


Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours is now offering a new promotional package to help you save money on multiple cruises. It’s called the Cruiser’s Club Card, and it allows you to come on several of our popular cruises for a small, up-front payment. This is a great incentive for locals, frequent visitors and parents/grandparents with kids who love to explore.
