About Us

Jim Shinn is a retired 27 year USCG veteran and a Licensed USCG Captain.  Jim and Katrina are longtime residents of Eastern North Carolina and Virginia, with over 30 years of boating experience. Knowing the area, they both fell in love with Southport and made it their home.  We want people to experience all that Southport has to offer.  On our Cape Fear Cruise, sit back, relax and enjoy incredible sights of our beautiful coastal area.  Water views of Bald Head Island, Oak Island, Southport and the Intracoastal  Waterway.  Don't forget your cameras as photo opportunities will present themselves and you don't want to miss it....egrets, herons, seagulls and an array of wildlife up close and personal.  It's always a great day when you encounter the dolphins at play.  Please feel free to share your photos on our Facebook page - we love to share the fun!  We also offer our Sunset Cruise where you can witness panoramic views of the most spectacular sunsets.
