Wilmington Water Tours offers daily cruises and customized private charters. The 49-person catamaran "The Wilmington" with a full-bar and spacious bathroom is a favorite activity for tourist and locals alike. The Friday and Saturday morning Early Flight Excursion is perfect for early risers and bird lovers. Thursday-Sunday evening Sunset Cruises with live local music is great for those looking to relax at the end of an exciting day. Last but certainly not least, the hourly Eagle's Island cruise is a great way to learn about the history, ecology and what's next in the downtown area and the Cape Fear River. Cruises are offered year-round. Daily water taxi service along the river is available on the "Bizzy Bee," including twice-an-hour trips to the Battleship North Carolina.
