The 8th Annual Pridefest Sunset Booze Cruise, featuring FREE beer & wine and on-board dance club with DJ Amy Alderman. 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 $125. 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!
Directions to the boat: After you pull into Pirate's Cove Marina, keep right and circle around the pool with the fountain as if you are circling back towards the entrance, then the road curves back towards the big bridge. Go about half way down this road and the Crystal Dawn will be a large boat just past a grove of trees.
While enjoying this two-hour sunset cruise on the Roanoke Sound you will see many famous Outer Banks 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 JJ Brewbaker's, you must call and make reservations and let them know you will be seeing the show.
