My husband and I were going to spend the day in Wilmington. Having never been there and not having any time to plan we just took a shot in the dark and hoped for the best. It was a really hot and humid day and saw that the riverboat tour was starting in 30mins so we decided to jump on that and tour Wilmington from the water. It cost us $54 for the tour and lunch.

There was some history and intresting facts. Some nice houses but that was it. The rest of the tour seemed to be pointing out industrial sites that we were passing. The lunch was a buffet which just had cold cuts to make a sandwhich and a salad. I wish we had known that because we probably wouldve went to a nearby restaurant if we had time. By the time the tour ended we only had an hour to kill before we had to meet up with someone and that did not give us enough time to explore much more of Wilmington.

pretty average trip but i love the water so it escaloates, a bad day on the water is better than a good day at work

A nice looking boat with a friendly crew. I would skip the dinner though, really nothing special. The buffet dinner changes, but ours was chicken and ribs and baked beans and coleslaw. Banana pudding for dessert. Sweat tea. Alcoholic beverages are extra. Crew was very nice.

Took the lunch tour (without the lunch) for a 1.5 hour trip. The narration was on the first half of the trip towards the mouth of the river. The return trip was unnarrated. A pleasant day with a breeze but I think I would have enjoyed more history as so much has happened here that is likely more interesting than the piers and loading docks for the container ships plying the ocean.

We've been several times with different groups of people for several of the shows and had a blast every time. Good times!
