• Blackwater Adventure

    This has become our signature cruise & Captain Doug's favorite.

    Join us as we head up the Northeast Cape Fear River to the upper reaches of the black water system of this mysterious river.

    The Northeast Cape Fear River is still largely unpopulated and looks much as it did when Wilmington was colonized in the late 1600's. We will cruise through the Castle Hayne Aquifer and by the bluffs of the Rose Hill Plantation.

    This journey is comfortable, relaxing and inspirational.  Photographers, birders and nature buffs will love the variety of wildlife & native plants that adorn the river banks. Your time with us will present you with the opportunity to see osprey, alligators, sea turtles & river otters, just to name a few. Bring your camera so you won't forget the untouched beauty of this Black Water Adventure.
