Soundside Tours makes a splash

It’s time to be out on the water! Meet Captain Mike and Karen Blanton who offer specialized private charter excursions for small groups and families to see the Crystal Coast. Their unique approach includes not only dolphin watching, sandbar exploration, and sunset cruises, but they have a second
charter boat that can accommodate overnight stays at Cape Lookout. Their combined 30 years of industrial sales, engineering, retail/wholesale business, and management – and of course experience as a USCG Captain – make this team ideal for their entrepreneurial venture.

First Rung funds were used to secure lifts and slips for convenient boat access from Emerald Isle to
Beaufort, including a hurricane safe marina.
