Last week I posted about having picked up a captain job for a New Bern, NC based tour boat on the Trent River.   Now, stepping off our Gemini catamaran is often for reasons of introducing local folks and tourists to points of interest on both the Neuse and Trent Rivers.

Captain Dave owns the tour company and is seen taking a group on tour. (Diann and I were coincidentally on board a friends yacht with fly-bridge.  Photos are good taken from Satin Doll II’s upper deck.)

As a sample of sights along the 12 mile tour…………….

One of the homes on the tour is that of a famous author's ex wife.

The Croatan National Forest is close by. Bog grass and Cypress trees can also be seen on the Trent River tour.

All the tour’s time slots have advantages as they fit passenger’s schedules. Most relaxing, however, is the last one of the day which often reveals sunsets and twilights on the return voyage.
