Historic Wilmington Cape Fear Area

Enjoy a relaxing ride on the river on our comfortable catamaran as you learn more about Wilmington, NC from our friendly captain and crew. Gain a new perspective on our history and our ecology as we share fun facts and historical anecdotes as we cruise along the Cape Fear River.

On the even hours, we cruise north along the Historic Downtown and Eagles Island where you see the past come alive. Capture unique views of the Battleship, learn about rice plantations, and view shipwrecks, flora, and fauna on this 50-minute adventure.

On the odd hours, we head south under the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to the State Ports, learn the history of a WWII Wilmington Ship Yard along with current facts while watching tug boats, container ships, and pleasure boats… bring your camera along, there are photo ops in every direction!
