Moved by their love for the Cape Fear River, the owners decided to found Wilmington Water Tours in order to share with others the history and beauty of this region. Their passion then created “The Wilmington,” a state-of-the-art, fully enclosed and handicapped accessible motorized catamaran, which can accommodate up to 49 passengers. Wilmington Water Tours is based in Historic Downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. We are here to serve the city and the exciting, always changing riverfront. We offer daily narrated cruises and private charters. Passengers board the vessel to explore the waters of the mysterious Cape Fear River, while also learning about the history, wildlife, and ecology of this waterway and surrounding area. A new addition to Wilmington Water Tours is the Bizzy Bee Water Taxi which now transports passengers from three stops on the Wilmington side of the river to the USS North Carolina Battleship. Come downtown and visit us… hop on the Bee or take a cruise on the Cat. Guaranteed it makes for a great time on the river!
The Wilmington is the first and finest state-of-the-art catamaran to serve Historic Downtown Wilmington, NC. She has a wake cancelling design and is fully enclosed (heat if needed). She is handicap accessible and offers a flexible layout for comfortable seating up to 49 guests. All ABC permits and spacious restroom complete our package.
