Henrietta has left Wilmington

Newspaper reports Henrietta was sold and is going to a new berth elsewhere. It was a nice attraction when it was here.

Great tour down the Cape Fear river !! Historic narration of the sites, very informative. We could walk around the Henrietta and see from all vantage points.

I've been on the Henrietta several times for their sunset dinner cruise. It's a relaxing ride and you'll see a great sunset over the river. The food is ok- not 'fine dining' but good. On th return, over the speaker system they point out point of interest and give some historical background. As mentioned, I've done this several times! Doesn't... More

We were not huge fans. Crowded expensive and the food was let then par. The views from the boat are great but over all not fun.

An iconic piece of the Wilmington Riverfront for many years the Henrietta is no longer here, sold to a company in Florida. Sad to see her go.

Dine to some lovely Murder mystery group or acoustic music and slowly glide down the Cape Fear River in this lovely old time replica of a boat from years gone by! it's really a lovely trip and the food was quiet nice!

What a fun way to spend an evening. Enjoying a cruise up and down the Cape Fear while enjoying a murder mystery dinner theater group. The food was good, the company of other cruisers was great and the entertainment was excellent. The waterfront along Wilmington Harbor and downtown Wilmington are must do's for both locals and visitors. We love it!!
