Incredible Team Building Day!

Easy from the initial inquiry on! Kristi helped tailor our afternoon to what our group would like even accomodating 26 people (two boat rides of 13)! Arrived to beach chairs , bocce ball and cornhole set out with the set table scape nestled into the dunes a bit on Masonboro Island. Cape Fear Seafood Boil knocked it out of the PARK with the food & presentation!! We had the best time and maxed out our 3hr event! Thanks Kristi, Captain Aimee and CF Seafood Boil!

Fun, informative afternoon cruising the intracoastal waterway!

Captain Brian was an excellent captain and host for the this Carolina skiff afternoon tour of the waterways around Wrightsville Beach. Very knowledgeable about the history and wildlife. We learned a lot and really enjoyed Captain Brian's company and boat. Highly recommend for a couple or family looking to relax on the intracoastal waterway.

We are already looking forward to our next excursion!

Our family had a memorable day learning to paddle board, we also got to swim, shell hunt and just relax. Captain Ian was wonderful. He listened to our requests and found the perfect spot to anchor. Our family members ranged from 5 to 89 years old... fun was had by all!

What a Fun Day With Epic Excursions

Our family booked 1/2 day with Epic Excursions and it was a wonderful experience. We cruised around for a time and then stopped at an inlet and did paddle boarding and swimming. The owners, Kristie and Captain Ian were awesome. This was our best day on vacation yet. They are both excellent at what they do. Yahoo for Epic Excursions.

Best day celebrating our anniversary on the water!

Celebrating our anniversary, my husband and I enjoyed a 3 hour private tour of the waterways surrounding Wrightsville beach. We did some exploring via paddle boards, saw views of the ocean and intracoastal, as well as local “hot spots” only accessible by boat. We did see dolphins while paddle boarding! Captain Ted was friendly, laid back, very knowledgeable about the area, and a great Captain! Highly Recommend!!! If you enjoy the nautical life, you won’t be disappointed

Perfect Bachelorette Party with Epic Excursions!

Went on a boat cruise for my bachelorette party and it was absolutely perfect! Everyone at Epic Excursions was a joy to work with. Kristi and Captain Ted were the BEST! Will definitely book again next time I am down :)

Private Boat Charter

We used epic excursions in the week leading up to my wedding to do a private boat charter with my family! They were one of the only companies I could find that would take our group of 9 on a captained charter and we had an amazing time! Our captain Ted seemed to know exactly when we wanted to engage with him, and when we wanted some private family time! We connected to the boats speaker and played our own music while cruising through the waterway and then parked at Masonboro for a private beach experience. Ted was also very knowledgable about the Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington area and we felt extremely safe with him. We will definitely do this again next time we return!

Corporate Island Dinner Outing

We were hosting a corporate meeting here in Wilmington and wanted to provide them with a fun, local experience. Epic Excursions transported our group out to an island and hosted a seafood boil with drinks and dessert and had the beach setup with tiki torches, bonfires and seating. They had an absolutely wonderful time. Kristi coordinated the event and she was so helpful and responsive. They handle all the details and ensured that the group had a great evening. We can't say enough good things about them!

Amazing 50th Birthday Celebration

We had an amazing day with the Epic Excursions Crew. We went on a private charter to Masonboro Island for my Husband’s 50th Birthday and it was EPIC! The captain and the crew was very accommodating with grilling burgers on the beach and setting everything up. Best day ever and highly recommend a trip with this awesome crew.

18th Birthday Camping on Masonboro Island

I took my son and some friends for his 18th birthday to camp and play on a barrier island. We grilled out, played in and along the ocean, had a fire, and slept in the tents. It was a great birthday getaway! Ian and staff are super easy to work with and very accommodating! I definitely recommend them. Go have an Epic Excursion today! You’ll be glad you did.

We all loved the sunset cruise!

We loved the sunset boat ride with Ian the first time that we had to bring our family and friends last weekend. Totally relaxing boat ride while sipping on a glass of wine. We all loved it!! I will definitely recommend Epic Excursions to all my friends and family!! The glamping experience looks awesome. I will definitely sign up for that!

Captain Ian & Kristi made our work event fun and exciting. Our team had the best time cruising the waters, paddle boarding and relaxing on a sand bar. I would highly recommend this type of event for any occasion. It appeals to everyone. Huge plus that on their boat you can take a large group. Definitely a 5 star experience!
