This “On-the-water Limousine” service enables you to treat your
family, grandchildren and guests to unique experiences tailored to
your needs, including (but not limited to), boating to restaurants
for lunch or dinner, sunrise and sunset cruises, backwater creek and
bird-watching cruises, or just getting out to view waterfront
properties for purchase consideration
One of the most popular excursions is a two-hour ride up and down
the ICW during which passengers get to see the old Southport yacht
basin, part of the Cape Fear River, the Bald Head Island Marina
(weather and seas permitting), and architecture along the Southport,
Oak Island, St. James and Sunset Harbor waterfronts. These trips
usually extend to the Lockwood Folly Inlet between Oak Island and
Holden Beach. We usually encounter dolphins about 3 out of 5 trips.
Parrot Head Charters can pick you up at the Bald Head Island, St.
James, or Blue Water Point Marinas or any other place that is
convenient to you. You can contact Capt. Tom Hetherington at
