Besides being relaxing, sunset cruises offer up some of the best views to be seen by boat. The color of the sky with the beauty of the glistening water never gets old, and each day nature offers up a new scene. Our favorite time to cruise the waterways is sunset, and we have listed our top 5 reasons for taking a sunset cruise with us around Wrightsville Beach.
1. Sunset Cruises offer the best views.
It goes without saying, but on a sunset cruise the breath-taking views that mother nature produces are worth the trip alone. You can expect to see the vibrant colors throughout the trip as the sun sets over the water. The calm cruise on the intercostal waterway provides a great atmosphere for everyone to relax and take in the views. The waterways around Wrightsville Beach are filled with beautiful scenery that come to life during sunset hours. The winding salt marshes change colors as the sun sets, and the waters are swarming with wildlife. You never know what you will see along your way, but we can promise it will be amazing on a sunset cruise.
2. Dolphin sightings during sunset hours
While on the sunset cruise, keep an eye out for dolphins! Watching out for dolphins is a fun activity no matter what age! And it seems the dolphins like to make their appearances during sunset hours…which makes a sunset cruise that much more amazing! Grab your cameras and not only enjoy the ride, sunset, and being with family or friends, but also keep an eye out for dolphins. Dolphin sightings are very common in the waterways surrounding Wrightsville Beach, and it is very likely to see one on a sunset cruise.
3. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some quality time
The amazing thing about our sunset cruises is that the boat has 23 feet of deck! You can enjoy the sunset with your whole family or make it an intimate couple’s adventure. Whether it is a group event, college friend reunion, or a 50th wedding anniversary gift, our sunset charters can hold up to 6 people.
4. Unwind with an adult beverage
Although the sunset cruise features one complementary glass or red or white wine, you are more than welcome to unwind with your drink of choice and any snacks you want to bring along! We invite you to BYOB and watch the sunset with us! Whatever the occasion, wine always makes it better!
5. Sunset cruise with paddleboarding
Before the sun sets, why not add on paddleboarding to top off a perfect day? When you book a sunset cruise, just tell us that you would like to add on paddleboarding and choose the amount of boards you will need! We will take you to the serene waterways away from the boat traffic where you can explore the wildlife. It’s great for beginners since the intercostal waterway is much calmer than the ocean!
