As the days get longer, they get warmer. Now that our evenings are pleasant and sunny in Wilmington, it can mean only one thing: It’s time for Cape Fear Riverboats to start up evening sightseeing cruises!

Beginning in May, take a cruise on the Cape Fear River Wednesdays through Sundays at 5, 6, and 7 p.m. We board at our dock on the Riverwalk at Water and Dock Streets—you’ve probably noticed our ticket booth.

We Have the Best Sightseeing Cruises on the Cape Fear

The cool breeze off the Cape Fear River and the warm spring sunshine are a great evening combination. And there’s good reason we’re the oldest continuously running cruise company in Wilmington, NC. Our evening cruises on the Capt. J.N. Maffitt, John Knox and Jacob’s Run are scenic, entertaining, and educational—and lots of fun.

Sit back, relax, and enjoy educational and entertaining narration by our captain. Learn about:

  • The history and importance of the Cape Fear River
  • Fun facts about TV shows and the film industry in Wilmington
  • Aquatic, bird, and other wildlife in our area
  • Sites of interest along the Cape Fear
