November 17th – Sunday
Civil War Prisoner Exchange with Dr. Chris Fonvielle

Do Not Miss This One!


Dr. Chris Fonvielle will join us as we cruise up the beautiful Northeast Cape Fear River in her fall colors, bringing her Colonial and Civil War History alive. Our final destination is 25 miles upriver from Wilmington to Captain Doug and Diane’s house in Castle Hayne. We will then return to Wilmington with a second group being shuttled up from Wilmington in a very comfortable ride.

Chris FonvielleOnce at our destination & in the spirit of tradition and for fun we will transfer our passengers in the form of a “Prisoner Exchange.” We promise not to abuse you too much, but as you know, not all prisoners survived their ordeal.

Make your reservation for either of the trips, but please do so soon. Dr. Fonvielle’s trips are always well received and tend to sell out quickly.

There are two cruise options.

# 1. Up river 9am to 12pm. We will depart from Wilmington at 9am for a 3-hour excursion to Castle Hayne. Return on Shuttle to Wilmington.

# 2. Down river 12pm to 3pm. Board shuttle at 11:30 am from our office in Wilmington. At 12 pm we will board the boat in Castle Hayne and return to Wilmington at approximately 3 pm.

Tickets are $55.00 per person.
