Eco-tours, sunset cruises, afternoon tea tours, birthday parties for kids, pirate tours, sunrise tours, moonlight tours, fall leaf tours, and fishing tours are only a handful of the types of trips available through Triangle Boat Tours.
Boating has been the passion of owners, Don & Heidi Watkins, for the last 20 years and even after eight years of sailing in some of the world’s premiere cruising areas, Jordan Lake was a treasure to discover in their backyard in the Triangle. With fish jumping and bald eagles soaring, 150 miles of shoreline to explore, plus no housing or development to spoil the views, guests will return feeling refreshed and from the experience, which is something special…true quality time! (No 3 hour drive to the coast either!)
The Watkins were in professional yachting aboard 50-120 foot sailing and motor yachts, private and charter, in 40+ countries around the world prior to relocating to North Carolina.
