My husband and I enjoyed our visit on the Cape Fear Riverboat. It was our first time and absolutely would do it again.

We enjoyed our boat ride, it was scenic, relaxing and very informative. We learned things we never knew about the Cape Fear river, we were surprised to learn how the river got its name. The captain and his mate were great. We really enjoyed ourselves.

My husband and I enjoyed the Sundown cruise for our anniversary. It was an enjoyable, romantic end to our night. A nice way to spent some time on the water. Beautiful views and interesting facts about the area.

My coworkers and I spent a lovely hour on the Cape Fear River one afternoon last week. It was very relaxing, and we learned some interesting history and facts. It was a nice team building event away from work. I want to do it again...More

Our captain was very friendly and knowledgeable. We took the sunset tour and the sunset did not disappoint. Timing was perfect. I think it could have been longer, however for the price you wouldn't hear complaints from me.

Short (one-hour) trip on the Cape Fear, worth the money to see a bit of the river and the State Port.
