Quite possibly the worst experience I've ever had on any vacation I've ever taken. We ended up on a 20 passenger boat, no bathrooms, no concessions. I was completely soaked during the boat ride. We ended up Walking through horse trails tromping through horse doo doo to see 2 horses, and NO SHELLS. Brochure EXTREMELY deceiving. Do NOT do the... More

Seriously impressed with how this grand dame of a boat is run --- Captain George was so kind to bring our two young boys aboard during a quiet time and we had a ball once we were on board with the trip we booked. Such a great move to have a bowsprit area for the kiddos where they can "steer"... More

Because our family members can't handle too much sun, we chose Crystal Lady Cruise for the late afternoon cruise. Unfortunately it was an expensive disappointment. They promised dolphins and wild horses. We saw about four horses in the distance. They were too far away for our grandsons to really see and we saw no dolfins. The sound system was hard... More

We have come to the crystal coast for years and I don't know how we missed this until this year. We had a great time. We went on the Monday fried chicken dinner cruise. Food was good. Crew was great. Even with some rain for part of the cruise, there was plenty of overhang that you can stand under if... More

The group I was in had 2 seniors and an older adult. No one had trouble boarding or walking around on the ship (There are a couple of steps but there was help on both sides of the steps). The lunch was surprising really good. We saw the sights (mostly man-made... I think it was too hot (near record heat)... More

We had a fabulous day fishing! The staff was friendly, we caught around 30 fish between all 4 of us, the boat was super spacious and clean, and my sons were allowed to "steer" the ship. Fabulous memories made with the Crystal Coast Lady! Thanks mates! :)

We went on the crystal coast Thursday sunset dinner cruise. It was a great time, amazing value. The food was good. The staff was very nice, even offered to take a few pictures of us and gave us life preserves to pose with. This is well worth the ticket price. If you are going to be in the area for... More

If seeing wild horses and dolphins are your primary reason for taking this boat tour...there is a very good chance you will NOT see either. If you expect to get anywhere near the open ocean you will NOT. The tour turns around and covers the same route twice. Basically your viewing the same points of interest you can view by... More

A beautiful relaxing way to end a day after a sunny hot time at the beach. The crew was gracious in welcoming the guests. Food was very good-Low Country Boil- and plentiful. Throughout the tour the staff called attention to things to watch for. It was great for us-we live in Morehead but it was wonderful for our guests from... More

We planned this trip especially for the dinner cruise with local country singer Bryan Mayer. While my husband wasn't as impressed because the volume was at a point where you could barely understand the words he was singing, it was overall an amazing little concert cruise. The BBQ dinner was yummy, and the cruise itself was so peaceful and relaxing.... More
