Have reviewed these great folks before but we recently had a large group of family in and we took the ride again. We had a few younger kids with us and adults of all ages. We were on a tour with a "school"group of young kids. We all had such a good time and the Captain as usual was so interesting- he really held the kids interest. The transportation is clean and comfortable with a restroom and refreshments available. This is a must do whenever we have out of town guests - no matter the time of year. Always something to see and learn...we highly recommend them if you are in downtown Wilmington. There are a lot of choices of tours but you can be sure you won't be disappointed here!

It was a very enjoyable and fun trip on the water. There was live music playing and nice options to buy at the bar.

Went on the hot dog cruise for Father’s Day! It was wonderful! Expected it to be full of children with their dad’s but it was mostly couples.
