Had the opportunity to take a beautiful evening tour on the Waterbug with Captain Bob Friday evening. I have been on his tour several times and he always amazes me each time with more stories and information about this beautiful town. Captain Bobs knowledge is far superior to any book or web site about our wild ponies, nature preserves and marine life. We were so fortunate to see a herd of ponies today. You must take this 45-60 minutes tour and enjoy nature at its best with either Captain Bob or Captain Peggy. I give it three thumbs up And a big Hooray!!!

Rode the Water Bug this afternoon. The vessel was helmed by Captain Peggy and she was soo knowledgeable!
We even got to see the wild horses. Thank you all for a wonderful, adventurous hour!

Waterbug Tours will be one of the highlights of your trip to Beaufort. With Captain Bob at the helm, armed with volumes of information and a great sense of humor, you will enjoy seeing the wild horses (and new colt), oyster beds, historic homes and the beautiful landscape of Beaufort from the water. Don't miss it!

Captain Bob showed us the shoreline of Beaufort and shared some history with us with his witty repartee. We were lucky to see the wild horses on the island as well as a new foal. A must boat trip!

My family and I went on the sunset cruise with CAPT Peggy. She was great and gave us a lot of information on Beaufort. Highly recommend the tour.
