The Captain was vey knowledgeable and personable. He conducted a wonderful historic tour for our retired teachers group. I highly recommend this. One of our ladies was the guest driver for part of the time. He kidded around and made us laugh.

Today we took the river tour and it was way more fun than we ever expected. The guide/boat guy was great. We didn't expect there to be so much interesting history in the Wilmington riverfront. Definitely a must-ride.
