The Wilmington, a state of the art fully enclosed and wake-cancelling catamaran, accommodates up to 49 guests, carrying them away from the bustle of town and out into quiet waters the during the Sunset Cruise. The ship’s built-in sound system plays quiet music, while its soft lighting casts minimal reflection onto the cabin’s windows. Guests can drink and snack on food, or simply take in the sights and enjoy cool evening breezes.

Alternatively, guests join Captain Doug on his favorite trip to the upper reaches of Cape Fear on the Blackwater Adventure tour. The banks, largely unchanged for more than 400 years, hug the river’s curves with dense thickets of cypress, which now conceal the regional history of Native Americas and early colonial settlers. Birds, sea turtles, and other wildlife also lie in wait to pose for a photographer’s lens.

Guests can also head south of Wilmington and back in history for the Down River maritime history cruise. Topics, which change weekly, explore the river and those who have traveled it, such as North Carolina pirates and blockade runners.

Wilmington Water Tours

Moved by their love for the Cape Fear River, Wilmington Water Tours' owners decided to found Wilmington Water Tours in order to share with others the history and the beauty of the area. The owners' passion soon garnered attention, and

Today, they own the Wilmington, a completely covered catamaran that can accommodate seating up to 49 people. Groups board the vessel to explore the waters of Cape Fear. They cruise the historic harbor, 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. Passengers can join the staff on sunset cruises as they feature local musicians to wash away the worries.

An addition to the Wilmington, the Bizzy Bee Water Taxi now transports passengers from three stops on the Wilmington side of the river to the USS North Carolina Battleship.
