Friday Evening: Sunset Cruise and Pridefest Kickoff Party!
Friday, September 22, 2017
5:00 pm Departure time aboard the Crystal Dawn or the “Acoustic Cruise”. Two boats will be going out, just like last year but the name of the 2nd boat will be TBA. The Crystal Dawn will be departing from Pirate’s Cove Marina on the Nags Head/Manteo Causeway, Manteo, NC.
The traditional sunset booze cruise aboard the Crystal Dawn OR a quieter, acoustic music cruise with live singers/jam session, beer and wine only, aboard the TBA.
The Crystal Dawn sunset booze cruise features a FREE OPEN BAR with liquor, beer & wine and on-board dance club with DJ TBA. Departure at 5:00 pm from Pirate’s Cove Marina, Manteo. The cruise can be a separate purchase of $50 or buy a weekend Pride Pass to all events for $100 to save money, as a part of our Early Bird Special. On August 15th, the cost of a Pride Pass will return to the regular price of $120. The Crystal Dawn holds only 100 passengers, so make your purchase soon! A weekend PRIDE PASS is ALL ACCESS to ALL EVENTS! When this cruise sells out, a waiting list will be started on the dock starting at 4:30. This cruise WILL sell out! While enjoying this two-hour sunset cruise on either boat on the Roanoke Sound you will see many local sites including the Elizabeth Two, a 16th century sailing ship, Jockey’s Ridge, a giant sand dune, the former home of Andy Griffith, the Lost Colony Theater, shorebirds, wildlife and perhaps a few dolphin. If you are having dinner after the cruise at Pamlico Jack’s, you must call and make reservations and let them know you will be seeing the show at 9:00 pm.
