Featured Business of the Month
by Tony (Lem) Phillips
The History Center is very proud to have Wilmington Water Tours as one of our Business Members. In fact, we are just plain proud to know these folks.
We have taken several of their cruises up and down the Cape Fear River and many times accompanied by local historians narrating our journey. Folks like Dr. Chris Fonvielle and Beverly Tetterton tell us so much of what we never knew.
You really have to visit Wilmington Water Tours website to fully appreciate all the ways in which you can be entertained whether it is a Sunset Cruise, or a lazy day cruise sipping Bloody Mary’s, you will find something affordable and fun to do.
Captain Doug Springer and his wife, Diane Upton, returned to Wilmington in 2004 to pursue their dream of life on the water. The Wilmington is the first and finest state-of-the-art catamaran to serve Historic Downtown Wilmington, NC.
The Wilmington has a wake cancelling design and is fully enclosed (heat if needed). She is handicap accessible and offers a flexible layout for comfortable seating up to 49 guests. All ABC permits and spacious restroom complete our package.
Come downtown and visit us, you’ll be impressed with our 46′ catamaran, The Wilmington.
Their investment in the custom design and state of the art catamaran The Wilmington, the first vessel of hopefully many, allows us to provide a wide range of offerings.
Give these folks a look and let them know that you too are a member of the Federal Point Historic Preservation Society. And remember, they will donate a part of the ticket purchase price to the History Center for every ticket purchased by members.
