Today we took the river tour and it was way more fun than we ever expected. The guide/boat guy was great. We didn't expect there to be so much interesting history in the Wilmington riverfront. Definitely a must-ride.

The Captain made the voyage entertaining and enjoyable. Extremely informative and very personable. I lived in Delaware all my life and didn't know many of the items he talked about.

Captain Hynson's boating lessons, historical narratives and hysterical interactions with the passengers would make this a great value, even if the boat never left dock! My kids (ages 11 and 13) each got turns at the wheel (with the Captain close by enough to easily...More
