Come experience what the very lucky as residents live and breathe on a daily basis. Let me help you enjoy the creek, river and bay the way the locals do. You will design, with Captain Gene, your own very special memory builder aboard the NATHALIE, the perfect boat for the area. We are comfortable and quiet yet fast when we need to be. In addition to watermen’s heritage tours on his own vessel, Captain Gene is one of the Captains of the Cove at The Tides. So it isn’t unusual to see Gene end a charter aboard the NATHALIE and hop onto a cove cruise with Tides guests. As with all watermen’s heritage captains, your trip will be safe, memorable and fun.
Let your imagination be your guide, or select from the following possibilities:
Hands on educational tours of crabbing, oystering, and pound nets
Trips to area waterfront restaurants
Wildlife. Species include osprey, Eagles, herons, kingfishers, pelicans, dolphin
Bring kayaks on board and explore far flung locations
Bay crossings to Tangier Island
Day trip to Cape Charles for golf
The NATHALIE is a 26′ Steiger with a 100 square foot open deck, shaded if desired, with enclosed pilot house, comfortable seating for all guests and powered by a quiet, low emission Honda 225 outboard.
All trips depart from The Tides Inn (Irvington, VA) unless otherwise arranged.
