Southport Water Tours

On a whim, we decided to take the short 45 minute or so drive to Southport, NC. We had lunch at Fishy Fishy Cafe and grabbed the 3:00 pm water tour leaving next to the restaurant. The 50 minute water tour offered by Southport Water Tours is definitely worth your time and the cost of $20 per adult.
