Took the cruise on Sunday evening. The ride along the Christina River is very relaxing, and nice. The crew is super professional and, on the top you have food to enjoy! Bar prices are very reasonable. I recommend you take it and enjoy it!

The best independence day I've ever had. All you can eat crabs, chicken, 2.00 bottled beers and a whole evening of music and fireworks on the river. Sadly, it has come to an end.

Better than I expected! The crabs are meaty, seasoned well, and cooked perfectly. The sizes varied, but there were lots of mediums, a handful of larges, and a few smalls. In addition to the crabs, they have fried chicken and cornbread. They're good as well,...More

Best to google Wilmington River attractions for more info. I tried to post the website, but am not permitted to do so. Quite silly, in my opinion. A nice ride but not sure how much longer this season it will run.
