This was our first time on the river and we loved it. What a nice way to see some of the Cape Fear River. It does get hot on the boat.

They say that one of the most magical parts of a day is the Sunset. Then add that to cruising on the Cape Fear, Live music, tasty drinks from our full bar with tasty cold drinks...this is the beginning of a memorable night

Totally enjoyed the sunset cruise my love. The crew was amazing and very helpful and friendly. And we really enjoyed the music.
