Fonvielle Jr., Professor Emeritus in the Department of History at UNC Wilmington, explores five famous urban legends with the skills of a professional historian. The stories have been told and retold for many years, in one case more than 200 years, but what is the truth behind them? What really happened and what do the legends reveal?

Moved by their love for the Cape Fear River, the owners decided to found Wilmington Water Tours in order to share with others the history and beauty of this region. Their passion gave rise to The Wilmington, a fully enclosed and handicapped accessible (with some restrictions) motorized catamaran, which can accommodate up to 49 passengers. Come explore the Cape Fear River on one of our many cruises!
