My son (9), sister, and mom (74) all enjoyed this quick tour of the marsh areas around OBX. Interesting facts and lovely scenery. Only problem? We should have signed up for the longer tour!

Amazing time was had by all. Our guide's knowledge of the water plants, wild life and local history was excellent. We stopped at numerous locations during the tour to explore our surroundings. This was money well spent and will most likely book this again.
