Valentine’s Day Cruise from Wrightsville Beach

Newly married owners of Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours will offer a free Valentine’s Day cruise to couples married 40 years or more to honor the tradition of marriage

U.S.C.G Captain Joseph Abbate and Alexis Abbate, owners of Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours and Water Taxi, will celebrate Valentine’s Day and weekend by offering couples, married 40 years or more, a free Valentine’s Day cruise, at 12:00pm, February 14, at their dock on Banks Channel across from the Blockade Runner Hotel.   The Abbate’s  plan to accompany the first ten couples that come to their dock on a romantic cruise around the Wrightsville Beach Area.  The blushing newly married couple wants to show these older couples a good time on their catamaran, the MV Shamrock. “We want to offer couples a unique and special date where they can spend time together and at the same time, learn more about the history, ecology and culture of the Wrightsville Beach area,” states Abbate.  However, these visitors will be asked for one thing in return for their free scenic cruise ticket—marriage advice!  Alexis explains, “Joe and I are in love, but we appreciate the fact that we can learn from successful couples, so I plan on asking for long term marriage advice from our experienced Valentine’s Day Cruisers!”

As local business owners, the Abbate’s constantly try to give back to their community and plan to continue their free Valentine’s Day cruise annually. Joe shared, “My parents celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary in August 2012.   I am inspired by their love and hope to be as happy as they are.”  Alexis excitedly stated, “We hope that one day, we can offer marriage advice to couples on our Valentine’s Day Cruises!”

Valentine’s Day Cruises are $50 dollars per couple. The tickets include select beverages, chocolate, and goodie bag. In addition to Valentine’s Day cruises, the Shamrock will be available for reservation on February 14th thru the 17th  from 11am until 4pm on the hour.
In addition to Valentine’s Day cruises, Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours offers regular shuttle service to Masonboro Island, Harbor Cruises, Guided Nature Tours and Custom Charters aboard the M/V Shamrock.
