Food is meh but the ride is nice. Travel along the scenic Cape Fear River for a few hours. Murder mystery dinners are cheesy but fun. I would recommend this for tourists who want to see the area by boat.

Decided to take a sunset sightseeing cruise on the spur of the moment. The cruise was fun, relaxing and informative and all for $20 each!

Good time on the lunch cruise. Enjoyed learning about the area from the captain narrating on the cruise. Lunch was turkey, ham, chicken salad sandwiches with side salads. Enjoyed being about to move around the boat.

Although my new bride and I did not choose to ride this piece of history, it was a beautiful site to see. It seems to be a local favorite as well.
