2013 Wild Horses of the Crystal Coast

I’m pleased to announce some wonderful changes to the Wild Horses of the Crystal Coast for 2013. I’ll be offering two different programs: Crystal Coast Wild Horse Safari and Crystal Coast Wild Horse Safari Lite. For the new format we’ll be using a boat to explore the waters surrounding Shackleford Banks. This addition will give access to photographic opportunities not available via a hiking only tour.

Crystal Coast Wild Horse Safari

The Crystal Coast Wild Horse Safari will take place over three weekdays. Scheduling this tour during the week will help avoid the sunbathers and fishermen that sometimes visit these locations on the weekend. Wednesday morning we’ll use a local ferry operator to visit the Rachel Carson Estuarine Reserve. Following that session we’ll travel to Harkers Island where we’ll break for lunch then board another ferry to explore the eastern end of Shackleford Banks on foot. Thursday we’ll be working from a Private charet boat, giving us access to locations that would be difficult or impossible to reach by foot. We’ll also get an earlier start in the morning and a later finish. This will allow us to take advantage of the best lighting conditions of the day. The Friday will be a 1/2 day session, again using a local ferry, to visit either the Reserve of Shackleford Banks depending upon the preferences of the group. Lunch will be provided for the two full-day sessions. Charter and ferry fees are also included. For lodging (not included) I recommend the Inlet Inn in Beaufort, North Carolina. Participants are encouraged to purchase of trip insurance to cover unexpected events. Cost: $825.

Crystal Coast Wild Horse Safari Lite

This program is a two-day photo tour visiting the two herds of wild horses that live along the North Carolina’s Crystal Coast. On Saturday we’ll board a passenger ferry departing from the Beaufort waterfront to visit the wild horses of the Rachel Carson Estuarine Reserve for our morning session. After the morning session we’ll travel to Harkers Island for lunch then catch a ferry to the eastern end of Shackleford Banks to photograph the wild mustangs living there. Sunday morning will be a 1/2 day session using a private charter to explore the protected waters around Shackleford Banks. This will provide soem unique opportunities to find the horses on small islands and shoals and swimming to and from the main island. Lunch is included on the first day as are all charter and ferry fees. I recommend the Inlet Inn for lodging and always encourage participants to purchase trip insurance to cover unexpected events. Cost: $500.
