Congratulations! Something important has happened in your life, and you’re throwing a party to celebrate. Everybody is coming, and of course you want it to be memorable, unique, legendary- an experience your guests will remember for the rest of their time on this planet. You don’t want to be confined to a traditional venue, and we don’t blame you. So what could be a better backdrop for your social event than the largest, most pristine nature preserve in the Cape Fear region? All you need to do is show up at our dock with your friends and some sunscreen, and let Wrightsville Beach Scenic Tours take care of the rest.
Envision your group hiking over a wandering trail on Masonboro Island, an uninhabited, eight-and-a-half-mile-long nature preserve, just a fifteen-minute boat ride south of Wrightsville Beach. As you enter the dunes, you’ll be greeted by our friendly staff with ice-cold beverages and refreshments. The aroma of Carolina-style pulled pork barbeque wafts in the island breeze. We’ll have several shade structures erected in the dunes, where you and your group will later dine at a table where the centerpiece is made of freshly-gathered seashells and the food is cooked over a campfire just a few yards away.
Before the meal, you can frolick with your friends in the gentle island surf, lay out in the sun on your own private beach, or scour the beach for sea shells to decorate your bookshelves. If the sun gets to be too warm, take shelter in a chair under one of our several umbrellas and relax with a book and an ice-cold beer from the keg buried in the dunes. As the sun sinks lower over the horizon, we’ll serve an authentic down-home North Carolina meal fit for kings and southern belles alike- slow smoked barbeque with our special homemade sauce, fresh coleslaw, fire-roasted potatoes, and sweet Vidalia onions, with a tray of fresh pineapple for dessert.
But the party isn’t over yet. Stay and watch the most beautiful sunset you’ve ever seen from atop a sand dune, then hang out by the campfire. There’s no light pollution on Masonboro, so you’ll see more stars than you ever thought possible. Our island-hopping skiff will be waiting to ferry your party back to our dock whenever you’re ready to return home. But after a day like this, it’s unlikely you’ll ever want to go back.
This event is fully catered, with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages provided. We’re flexible- let us know what you’d like to have out there and we’ll make it happen. This is a fully customizable experience that you will truly never forget.
Cost: $100/ person, minimum 10 people.
