Cruisin Tikis Beaufort

Let Cruisin Tikis Beaufort create a memorable sail on the North Carolina Coast complete with cool breezes, saltwater and breathtaking scenery. If you are staying at the Beaufort Hotel – leave from right outside the property at the neighboring Boathouse Marina.

Morning Mimosa and Bloody Mary Cruise
The sunrises and mornings on the Crystal Coast are some of the prettiest times of the day. Meet the captain at the dock bright and early for a 90-minute trip. Get ready to experience the beauty of the Crystal Coast from the deck of the tiki boat while you have a morning drink, alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Departs Tuesday – Sunday, at 8:30 am.

Bird Shoals or Carrot Island Cruise
Bird Shoals (on the backside of Carrot Island) is quick and easy to get to, and allows for swimming and relaxing while watching for ponies.

Beaufort Sightseeing Cruise
There are few better times to be enjoying the sea breeze, the sun, and any beverages you might bring along.  As it is one of the warmer parts of the day, going to the beach is an obvious solution, but due to the tides in and around the Crystal Coast, you might also be able to create your own Sandbar Party with this 2-hour trip. Departs Tuesday – Sunday at 11 am and 3 pm.

Sunset Cruise
After the heat of the day, the sunset on the Crystal Coast is often a welcome and beautiful relief. Due to the unique alignment of the Southern Outer Banks, the sunset isn’t directly behind the beach, allowing some more time to enjoy the rays and possibly a beverage. Please note departure times for this two-hour cruise will be adjusted during the season to account for the longer days. Departs daily at 6 pm.

Beaufort by Night
Take a 90-minute night cruise, and see the sights of the Beaufort waterfront while you cruise and enjoy your favorite libation! See marine life be attracted to the tiki lights, and enjoy the quietness of the waterway at night. Departure times will be adjusted during the season to account for the longer days. Departs Thursday – Saturday at 8:45 pm.

Private Charter
Have your wedding event, private party, or special occasion celebrated on your own private tiki boat!!! With a private charter, up to 6 guests can enjoy a custom tiki cruise built to their desires. Book one or tow boats for 2 to 8 hours. You are welcome to have your boats catered, or just bring your own food and drink.
