Thought the information and tone of the Captain was great with a lot accomplished In only an hour tour. We would like to thank the Captain, crew and fellow passengers for allowing our dog "Buster" along for the trip. Roy H

Lovely evening on the scenic Cape Fear. I was surprised by the wild beauty. I never knew that so close to Wilmington there was such a peaceful area. The hosts were friendly and educational! Great time with my honey!

Our little ones, ages 8 to 2, really enjoyed the boat ride and the adults loved the history of Wilmington. Overall a great experience.

The tours guides were great and very knowledgeable. And cash bar and snacks on board were definitely a plus. It is absolutely worth the price of admission.

There is no dress code to my knowledge. It is a catamaran with a nice bar, but if you happen to be celebrating and want to wear fancy evening wear, go for for it, nobody would care. Maybe bikinis would be inappropriate... More
