Informative tour of a beautiful river with a friendly crew. What more could you ask for? Oh yeah a bar if you’re interested.

This is one of those wonderful things to do in Wilmington. I live here and go out on these occasionally. Excellent thing to do when people come to visit.

We chose to do the sunset tour with live music while we were in Wilmington for our honeymoon! It was so fun, and we met a lot of great people! The staff was so nice, and the live music was great. I feel that the price for this was also affordable for a date night. We also loved the bar! So cool to have themed drinks and other options as well.

The tour was fully booked. There was a group of six to eight people in the rear of the boat that milled around and visited. They were loud and talked and laughed and paid no attention to the speaker. It was distracting and disrespectful to all. They made it difficult to hear the narration. Nothing was done to ask them to be quiet.

Sorry for the noise level. It is a very hard situation to control. We are thankful it does not happen often, but once in awhile you do get some rude folks that just don't care. If you are available to join us again, please give me a call & would love to treat you to another cruise.
