Easter Eagles Island Cruises

Sunday, April 20th at 11, 12, 1, 2, 3 and 4pm, $10

Got company?  Do you have family visiting and not sure what to do after lunch... then join us for a 50 minute cruise on the river.  Even hours go north and odd hours south.  Do both north and south cruises for a total of 1 hour and 40 minutes on the water for only $17.

Wine Tasting

Wednesday, April 30th at 6:30pm, 2 hours, $38

David Koebly from Country Vinter will be our wine specialist for this cruise leading you through four secret wines.  Wines are complimented with olives, chocolates and fruit.

Cruise to Southport

Sunday, April 27th, 11:00a.m., $55

Tucked away just below Wilmington and the mouth of the Cape Fear River and just 45 minutes or so above the South Carolina state line you'll find Southport.  Centuries of boating men and women have left their mark on this village.  If you aren't in a hurry, come aboard and cruise down river with us to explore it.  Stede Bonnet, the Gentleman Pirate, was repairing his vessel in a nearby creek when he was captured.  I venture to say if you stop here for a day, you too will be captured by the charm and visitors' welcome attitude.

All day cruise, from 11:00 - 6:00pm for only $55.

Ron and Raphael

3 Bridges Pass

3 Bridges Pass!  This pass allows you to stay on board for 2 consecutive Eagles Island cruises, giving you a total of 1 hour 40 minutes on the river for only $17. We alternate these cruises on the hour so that you can enjoy both trips at a great value.

Even hours will venture north along the historic downtown riverfront and behind Eagles Island towards the Brunswick River.  You will get up close to the Battleship, learn about rice plantations, and view shipwrecks, flora and fauna. 

Odd hours will take you south as we cruise to the State Ports, learn about the importance this port played during the Civil War and learn the history of the Wilmington ship yards and how the river has served NC from the time of the earliest explorers.

Snacks and drinks are available for purchase on board.  Cruises leave on the hour between 12:00 and 4:00pm.
