Seavisions Charters was great to be able to photograph the wild horses. Captain Monty took a group of us photographers out several days, over to Rachel Carlson preserve, Horse Island and Shackelford banks, he was very knowledgable about the area and the horses and helped us find the horses. Had a great time. Would recommend.

He was very knowledgeable about the island and this portion of the Carolina Coast. Additionally he has a good understanding of the history of the reserves. My oldest granddaughter loves horses and that was... More

Captain Monty took us on a wonderful excursion to Shackleford Banks on a windy, cold Sunday afternoon and made it very special. Our family including our 19 month old grandson enjoyed an "off the beaten track" adventure. He provided us with no end of detailed, knowledgeable commentary on the area, was anxious to accommodate our interests and was a delightful... More

We are still smiling after our day with Captain Monty. Everyone in our group (ages 15 to 70) voted this the highlight of our trip. We had been to this area before with a "group tour", it is absolutely worth the cost difference to have someone show you the sights that only the locals know about. We plan to make... More

I consider myself local to the area, know the beaches pretty good, but have never had so much fun. We chartered Capt. Monty for a half day and he charmed us to no end. He is an excellent tour captain, just the right amount of fun, information and sightseeing. It was an all day Zen. He knows the region, but... More

Came to Atlantic Beach with the family and only booked one thing...Captain Monty. Best decision we made by far. He treated me, my wife and daughters (ages 7 and 4) like family from the moment of first contact a few weeks before coming down.
