Have an Adventure on the Water With Nautical Excursions

(The Triangle Trend) — Human beings are mostly water. Is it any wonder then, that we long to be near the water, on the water, and in the water? Your means to that end is Captain Dwayne Eury, owner of Nautical Excursions. Welcome aboard your bridge to liquid pleasure. 

Nautical Excursions offers fishing charters, sunset cruises, relaxing boat adventures, customized boating trips, birthday parties, group events, and/or half or full days of recreational fun at Shearon Harris Lake in New Hill in southwestern Wake County. The boat can accommodate up to eight passengers and is well equipped for both your comfort and safety. 

In addition to the recreational, Eury offers the education required by NC Wildlife for all new boat owners born on or after January 1, 1988, including the state-required NASBLA Boating Education course. New boat owner specifics like trailer unloading and loading, pre- and post-cruise checklists, docking, rules of the road, and boating safety operations to name a few. 

As a lifelong North Carolina native who grew up around lakes and the ocean, it is no surprise that Eury’s love for the water led him to become a US Coast Guard veteran. There, he gained valuable navigational and boating experience. He is currently a member of the USCG Auxiliary and holds a USCG-approved Captain’s license. 

Eury’s extensive experience puts you in good hands. His goal, as noted on the website, is to provide you with a safe and most enjoyable water adventure. 

Shearon Harris Lake, a man-made lake that was completed in the early 1980s, is ostensibly there as the cooling waters for the same-named nuclear power plant’s reactor. However, as you tour the lake under the careful eye of Captain Dwayne, you realize that Shearon Harris Lake is so much more. 

This asymmetrical lake, with endless nooks and crannies to delight in and explore, has no shortage of wildlife both in and around its calm, warm waters. Bald eagles, hawks, and egrets are a frequent and beautiful sight soaring overhead while you cruise around the lake. And, as host to a few bass fishing tournaments in the last few years, Shearon Harris Lake has earned a well-deserved reputation as an excellent fishing lake, boasting plentiful populations of largemouth bass, channel catfish, and black crappie. 

And, while you sit comfortably in the Nautical Excursion mothership, you’ll see a wide variety of other lake top activities including jet skiers, fishermen, kayakers and canoeists, paddleboarders, powerboaters, pontoon aficionados, and so on. So, whether you’ve come to birdwatch or people watch, you won’t be disappointed.
