  • Lead the group to and from Beaufort on a beautiful ride along the ICWW at approximately 30MPH
    • We will provide tide info, bridge clearance and opening schedules.  If you boat requires an opening, we will not leave you behind.
    • There will be opportunities to use the head on your boat, we will slow down occasionally for this.
  • Help you get your Garmin electronics setup to record a track on our way up, making navigation home easier if you decide to run ahead or behind the group.
  • Put together a list of restaurants with menu choices and phone numbers.
  • Show anyone how to use Uber, a ride sharing app that makes getting around Beaufort by car very easy.
  • Make time and suggest a place to purchase fuel for the run home.
  • Provide you with a suggested list of items to bring with you.
  • Provide you with plenty of free time to enjoy Beaufort!
  • Answer any of your questions…or try our best!
