I've taken family, friends, and clients out on the Henrietta, and we've never been disappointed. Delicious food, great service, and a lovely tour on the water.

The Henrietta III left Wilmington over a year ago. There has not been a replacement. For a great tour of the Cape Fear River try the Wilmington Water Tours.

We have been on the Henrietta many times and it is always fun to travel around the Cape Fear via paddle boat. A great way to see the Wilmington skyline!

Bought and sailed away a while ago you will not find the Henrietta at the Wilmington riverfront. There is plenty more to see though.

We wanted to take a lunch cruise on this boat but it was sold in 2016. The owner told us it was too much work and was no longer able to do it.
