Our Featured Activity

Lookout Cruises

For 27 years, Beaufort has been the home port to Lookout Cruises one of the premier water cruises on the Crystal Coast. They offer a far-reaching range of adventures that will have Carolina coastal fans of all ages soaking up the sun and enjoying the best of the Southern Outer Banks. This is a must do event while visiting Beaufort.

All excursions take place onboard a 45’ ft. long catamaran with cushioned seating, lots of shade, large clean restrooms, and enough room for 42 passengers. This ship-shape vessel embarks on a wide range of cruises and adventures, which includes short sunset sails and moonlight sails puts you in front of some unbeatable views of the waterfront. Dolphin watches are common and often dorsal fins can be spotted just a few feet away from the boat.

For a true adventure, sign up for a Cape Lookout Cruise, which provides transport to the National Seashore, a catered lunch, and plenty of shelling and sightseeing opportunities. With so many explorations available, and so much water to cover, Lookout Cruises introduces newcomers to all the beauty and wild joys that this pristine parcel of North Carolina has to offer. It’s no wonder Cape Lookout National Seashore was named “Best National Park Beach” by USA Today.

A trip aboard Lookout Cruises will prompt you to pull out your smartphone to snap a photo.
