What’s a trip to the Outer Banks without some time spent on or in the ocean or sound? Outer Banks boat cruises give you a way to explore the beach from a watery view. Boat cruises can vary between a tour, a charter boat at your command for a day, taking a ride at a marina, a sailing lesson or a quick cruise around the coast as you watch the sun set. Depending on how much time you have, boat cruise lengths might be half an hour or a day-long event. On Outer Banks boat tours, you might have the opportunity to search for dolphin frolicking through the waves, watch the sunset at the close of a perfect day or just zip around the coast where you can view the rugged shoreline. Ships’ individual captains and mates, who will take you on idyllic trips where you can lounge in style on the boat, lead Outer Banks charter fishing trips.
