Sightseeing and water were made for each other, and in the Wilmington area we have a wealth of both. A number of the boats also can be chartered for scenic cruises or wildlife viewing. With an abundance of marshes and sounds plus the Cape Fear River and lots of smaller streams, there’s a wide variety of wildlife and interesting flora for nature lovers to appreciate.
An interesting way to explore the Cape Fear River is with Wilmington Water Tours on a state-of-the-art 46’ catamaran, which docks at the Cape Fear Riverwalk next to Chandler’s Wharf. With seating for up to 49 guests, the ship can be reserved for all types of special events, including corporate outings, weddings and receptions, birthdays and other fun events.
