Captain Dave provided the perfect morning trip for my daughter and I. We cruised through some of the inland water ways, and even managed a little fishing. Let's not forget the perfect weather Captain Dave brought for us.... ;->
Listen, if you need to be reminded how good people can be, how fun, how competent and kind, then David is your captain!! You will not regret a moment or dollar spent, I swear. We needed time on the water and a little bit of healing, and he provided us with both!!
Dave was communicative leading up to the boat ride and extremely pleasant to talk to. He took us to a sand bar and to figure eight island on our boat ride and we cruised back to the public boat ramp after the sun set. This was exactly the birthday boat ride I was looking for for my wife and the perfect end to our vacation in North Carolina. Highly recommend Dave!
Thomas and Lisa were amazing hosts. We had a lovely time and learned so much about the area. The boat is very fun and comfortable and the music was great.
Excellent Trip! Clean boat, shaded sections, great communication, Thomas & Lisa are awesome. Felt like I was hanging out with old friends! Beautiful views. Definitely book them you won’t regret it.
I use this app often, and Thomas and John have provided the best service I have ever experienced!!! They were super communicative, kind, fun, and a blast to get to know. They showed us the most beautiful parts of Wilmington AND brought drinks and breakfast for our party of 6. We will definitely schedule more time with Salty Ventures 12/10 would highly reccomend
