Captain Bly’s Shipwreck Cove is the perfect place to cool down!

With temperatures soaring in the high 90s – 100s, Captain Bly’s Shipwreck Cove is the place to cool down in New Bern, NC!

Thanks to Rich Sheridan, New Bern Now’s “Map Man” and owner of Crystal Coast Discovery Maps, for telling me about a new, fun, amusement park with water slides in town – Captain Bly’s Shipwreck Cove!

I had to see for myself so I popped in to visit the Blythe Family’s new business. Kelly Blythe and her husband run the business and Charles Blythe owns the company.

Kelly considers Captain Bly’s a “Get wet family fun center for all ages”.

They have miniature inflatable water slides for youngsters that are too small to ride the two – 24 foot water slides that end in a crystal clear and cool pool.

They also have a large miniature golf course, baseball batting cages, arcade with video games and Foosball table, indoor bounce houses, snack bar and more!

Captain Bly’s Shipwreck Cove is a perfect venue for kids’ birthday parties and they also welcome groups. Pirate Mike and his parrot, Pickles, entertain kids during birthday parties!

They have a snack bar with a large variety of tasty treats! Stop by for the local flavor of Maola Ice Cream, soft pretzels, nachos, chicken tenders, slushies, and more.

Captain Bly’s is a one-of-a-kind amusement park in New Bern. I’m predicting it will be one of the top places to visit this summer!

When I saw the water slides and crystal clear pool, I wanted to jump in; unfortunately, I didn’t bring my bathing suit. I will definitely be back to enjoy the cool water!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
