Loved the boat tour- you really get a totally different view of the city and the river. So beautiful. Well worth the price. Just another fun way to enjoy downtown Wilmington.

We took the Eagle Island tour. It was excellent. The captain was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was an enjoyable experience from purchasing tickets to departing the boat. Excellent service! I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Wilmington.

Our Eagles Island Cruises offer you a great opportunity to see Wilmington from the Cape Fear River. Relax, grab a cold drink from our full bar & enjoy the sites.

What a great way to spend an hour in historic downtown Wilmington’s waterfront. Captain Doug & crew were informative & entertaining. Highly recommended.

If you have 50 min. to relax while in town, this is the thing to do. Come on board, relax while taking in the sites & learning some history about our area. Thanks for the recommendation.
