This is the Captain’s favorite trip! We head up the Cape Fear to explore the upper reaches and black water systems of the river. From the Rose Hill Plantation to the mysterious Black River, the exploits of the early explorers and history of the basin comes alive. The Cape Fear is still largely unpopulated and looks much as it did when Wilmington, North Carolina was colonized in the late 1600’s. Cruise runs daily Tues-Sat.
