What You'll Get


Rivers were humanity's first true highways, transporting goods, driving economies, and enabling humorous kayak jams. Navigate historic waterways with a drink in your hand with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one BlackWater Adventure boat tour from Wilmington Water Tours (a $25 value), plus a $5 credit to use at the gift shop.

Setting out from the Cape Fear Riverwalk, Wilmington Water Tours' black-water excursions provide an inimitable way to see the cypress-lined banks of American history. The 2.5-hour BlackWater Adventure explores the upper reaches of Cape Fear's untouched vistas, serenely floating past wildlife such as egrets, wild turkeys, bears, alligators, runaway child stars, kingfishers, and ibises. Along the way, Wilmington Water Tours’ knowledge-stuffed guides will shower travelers with tidbits of information on Cape Fear's rich history, including Native Americans, early European settlers, and Civil War blockades. For a tipplingly terrific trip, enrich the experience with an offering from the boat-borne bar. Board your adventure 15 minutes before departure, which takes place at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday.

About 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.
