We took the sunset cruise with Captain Doug and his wife Diane. We had an absolutely delightful time. The trip was entertaining, the weather was beautiful and the acoustic guitar player/singer was enjoyable. We are local residents and have never been on a Wilmington Water Tour before. But, I can assure you, we will certainly do it again. Next time will be the Blackwater Tour. You can also sign up to receive their emails giving you information about upcoming special events. Whether you are a visitor or a local, this is sometihing you shouldn't miss!

We had a wonderful tour, the captain is full of knowledge along with a wry wit! The accommodations are very comfortable, with a spacious bathroom and a full bar and snacks available. Bring a sweater, a camera and binoculars!!!

We had a delightful twilight boat trip at Wilmington Water Tours. Views of Wilmington, 2014 Best American Riverfront (USA Today), and area were gorgeous by night. The music, singing, and harmonica by Randy McQuay were phenomenal. The boat was immaculate and had a lovely bathroom. The crew was congenial and the captain knowledgeable. We recommend this two hour tour to visitors and locals! We will go again.

Take lots of pictures. Sunset was awesome. We danced the night away. The guitarist although good was very fidgety and we barely got 6 songs out of him. Narrator and staff were wonderful. Attentive and fun ...

From Our Editors

Wilmington Water Tours' owners decided to fulfill a lifelong dream, bought a boat, and took to the waters. The owners' passion for boating and local history soon garnered attention, and with the help of some friends, they founded Wilmington Water Tours to show off local history and sights.

Today, they own the Wilmington, a wake-canceling catamaran with a fully enclosed, heated cabin capable of seating up to 49 people. Groups board the vessel to explore the waters of Cape Fear. They cruise the coastline, watching the silhouettes of buildings transform into molten-colored spires in the sunset. They can also explore the history, wildlife, and mysterious channels of the Cape Fear River. Sometimes they just absorb the sounds of the state, inviting a musician to play on their Acoustic Spotlight tour as they drift down a river or pull loop-de-loops in the harbor.
