Becky, the sunsets are fantastic on the Cape Fear River! So happy that you had such a wonderful time kayaking.

Don hosted us on a Black River 8 mile paddle, with cooperative weather. It's a beautiful spot, nice equipment to use (kayaks were cleaned from prior uses with no bilge water), and a congenial and knowledgeable guide. We look forward to future trips.

Sunin, we do occasionally see water moccasins on the river in this area. However, they are not as commonly seen as most people tend to believe. So on our kayaking adventure, this is not a major concern.
