This was such a fun boat cruise and the perfect amount of time for our toddler. The staff did a great job of making it educational but also fun!

We went on a 4pm tour. My kids loved it it was there first time on a boat. They sell adult beverages (11$) and non alcoholic ones for the kids(8$)that were really good. The tour guide tells you about the area and its a nice length without being to long. There was a bathroom on the boat which is nice and a good amount of seating, though I recommend the back as it's more private for a family with little ones and has a great view. The cost was good at 50$ for 2 adults and 3 kids my youngest was free though (3and under). We got to see a dolphine when out which my girls loved, it was a great family outing and I would recommend. They also do sunset/ sunrise tours for a little more $.
I had a very amazing time at the Wilmington Water Tours! I purchased my ticket a day prior and Emily on the phone she was really helpful with my questions! The cruise was 1 hour long and the captain was really funny and informative with all the history and fun facts about the area. The cruise had a bar where you can get drinks for adults and for kids. I highly recommend to do a cruise while you are in Wilmington!
Reasonably priced. Friendly staff. The cruise was both informative and relaxing. The on board bar was a bonus! We even saw some dolphins. A great time was had by all.
Fun and informative tour. Went towards the battleship. Snacks and drinks on the boat as well as magnets and postcards all for purchase. There is a bathroom on board as well. Trip lasts about 45 minutes.
My boyfriend and I took the sunset cruise on our three year anniversary. The crew was nothing but friendly, and they congratulated us throughout the night when they found out about the special occasion. The atmosphere was great. Friendly and peaceful. There was a perfect amount of narration to learn some interesting facts while still enjoying some relaxation. Relaxing music played quietly so you could enjoy it or tune it out depending on your preference. I cannot stress enough how great Captain Mike, Hunter, and Emily were. 10/10 would go again
