We, here at Cape Fear Riverboats feel so fortunate have been to share the Henrietta III with Wilmington residents and visitors for 15 years and the Henrietta II before her. While we look forward to bringing another boat to the Cape Fear River in 2016, we will always have a special place in our hearts for her.

Since our announcement on January 20, 2016 that the Henrietta III was sold to a Florida based company, we have received an outpouring of support and kind words from past customers, community members, and friends. Many of their memories are compiled below.

We welcome all to share your memories of her with us on Facebook Page, Twitter, or Pinterest. Be sure to  tag HENRIETTA III in your photos or by using ‪#‎HenriettaIII‬.

And remember, we are still operating the Captain J.N. Maffitt and the John Knox for sightseeing tours and charters when the season begins in March. We hope you’ll join us for a cruise soon.
