Meet the Captains

The Captains, Mike and Heather Perry


Mike first moved to Carolina Beach 20 years ago and began his relationship with the water as part of the Carolina Beach Ocean Rescue squad. From there he travelled the country, working with the ski patrol in Aspen Colorado and flipping pizzas in the Cascades of Oregon, with several other stops along the way.


After returning from his travels, Mike settled in Alexandria, Virginia and continued his family’s tradition of serving as a firefighter. This is also where Heather was from, and where the two of them met and fell in love. She too has a passion for travel, and the water, and also for her family and making people feel special. Together they created a beautiful life, helping each other smile, laugh, and appreciate every day.

In 2011, Mike and his wife Heather moved back to the beach and are thrilled to call CB home. After giving hundreds of tours for years to their family and friends who had not explored this area before, they realized their passions for sharing the experience and the area with others. Following their hearts, they decided to start Island Hopper Tours. The two Captains work great together as a team, and truly enjoy every day on the water with every person they bring aboard.

We look forward to meeting YOU!
