Our family enjoyed cruising the river and learning a few facts about Wilmington's History. For the ticket price, you get what you pay for. The guides were very friendly and we enjoyed our time.

We had an absolutely wonderful scenic tour of the Cape Fear River and the back waters around Eagle Island.

Even though it was cloudy and bit of drizzle we had a great time on our tour. The narrative was very informative and interesting getting to learn about the local community history. Wow, it is a great way to get to know about Wilmington.
