Owner description: Cruise the Cape Fear River in style on this elegant riverboat that offers narrated sightseeing tours, lunch and dinner cruises and romantic moonlight trips.
Reviewed 11 August 2013

The Henrietta was a very nice riverboat and is the biggest on the Cape Fear. We wanted something extra to do and this seemed like a good choice. If you're not into history it was a little boring but the view was great along the river. They offer a bar and a snack bar as well as air conditioning on the second deck. I personally wanted to go on it because it was featured in an episode of One Tree Hill when Nathan and Chris play riverboat poker.

We had a fabulous dinner cruise - the food was amazing and the service was great! Definitely worth the price!

Tip: Eat a snack before boarding/don't plan to eat until an hour or so after boarding depending on when your table is called to the buffet.

I would recomend another boat tour. This tour was good but I heard from friends that we met said that the smaller boat tours were alot better tour. We didn't have lunch so on the way back to the dock we just sat outside on top to take in the other side of the river. When you go down the river on the tour you will hear the history of the river and on the way back you just sat there and look around. I would not do this tour again.

I enjoyed the narrative tour down the Cape Fear. It was very beautiful and informative. I found getting to see the docks and large gantry cranes very interesting. The boat was well maintained, but a little dated. We were moved from the regular tour to the lunch tour (lack of customers for the afternoon?). I am grateful we didn't pay the $10 per person for the cold cut lunch- it really left a lot to be desired. It's a fun activity to do and a chance to see a different part of Wilmington.
