Took this cruise when family members visited last July. Nice calm ride with a narrative along the way. Crew very friendly, helpful and informative.

This was a last minute addition to our Wilmington getaway. We were super happy with the tour - we decided to take the round-trip tour - up the river and then down the river. It was relaxing, informative and very fun. The drinks weren't too shabby either! What a nice surprise! We will definitely recommend and return. Thanks!

This was a short - 50 minute - tour that was packed with historical and environmental information and insights. Inexpensive but really fun

Living in Maryland and owning a house these past several years in Wilmington where we will end up retiring, we decided to have our wedding celebration on "The Wilmington" this past Sunday. Diane and Doug (the owners), Ashton, Donna, and Eric made our day spectacular! As we worried about every detail, they went above and beyond pleasing us more than we could imagine. A formal ceremony on the boat, catered with a full course hot meal, fresh flowers, music, dancing, a photographer on board - a small intimate wedding of our dreams! They were so pleasant and easy going to work with and became our friends forever. If we ever had the need to host a small party or just enjoy one of their tours ourselves, we would definitely hop aboard their boat! Thanks to "Wilmington Water Tours" for a day to remember!

Had a lovely and entertaining Cruise with Captain Doug who was incredibly informative, funny and learned SO many things about the lovely Black River-Cape Fear River. Loved the whole experience and would gladly go again to try out the other tour options.
There was lots of books on the History on board about the River and Binoculars to see the birds that Captain Doug was incredibly informative about.
Drinks on board were yummy and little snacks available for purchase. Restroom on Board as well.
Everyone we spoke to involved with the Cruise was incredibly friendly and accommodating.
