Mark your calendar and come on board!

Capt. Mark Thesier is fond of saying to his passengers as they head out for an enjoyable scenic Edenton Bay cruise on the “Liber-Tea” — “This is loud as we get, and as fast as we go.”

In other words — Not loud. Not fast.

The “Liber-Tea” is a beautifully appointed comfy six-passenger tour boat powered by an eco-friendly electric motor. The only sound you’ll hear is the water rippling past the hull. No exhaust fumes to spoil your wine and cheese repast. No engine noise to keep your girlfriend from hearing you say, “Will you marry me?” (Or whatever you want to say.)

Bring along family and friends — the “Liber-Tea” comfortably sits six on its padded seats, and there’s a table for you to spread out your goodies. Plus there’s a canopy to keep you cool in its shade. The “Liber-Tea” is definitely the way to meander around the bay!

Capt. Mark will regale you with interesting stories about Edenton and the beautiful bay it is nestled on. For instance, did you know that there is a special Cypress tree growing in the bay that the sailors kept rum tucked in? You’ll be an Edenton Bay expert after you get back to land!

Completely seaworthy, regularly safety inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard, you will feel entirely comfortable bringing along young and old.

Special theme charters are available, whether they are something you put together or one of Capt. Mark’s specialities, like his sunset tours.

So don’t just settle on seeing Edenton by walking our streets. Go out on the water in the “Liber-Tea” and see it from our beautiful Edenton Bay!
