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 then created, “The Wilmington”, 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!
