Joseph was a well informed guide who is passionate about the river and its history. He was responsive to our requests to do more paddling rather than island hopping. The confirmation email gave a complete list of what we needed to bring.

We spend this year Mother's Day paddling along Cape Fear River and marshes, it was beautiful. I called Don on Saturday afternoon asking if he could fit the three of us into a kayaking tour next day. All groups were full, but he managed to find a trip for us and it turned out perfect. We paddled to the islands... More

My wife an I went on a 3 hour morning kayak, near Fort Fisher and Zeke's Island. Don took us through marshes that we would have been lost in. We saw lots marsh-birds - plovers, herons, etc, as well as some migratory bird. There were mid-day storms rolling in, but Don tracked the weather perfectly and got us back to... More

Fun late afternoon kayak trip on Cape Fear River. Don, our guide, was exceptional. I was having a little problem with my back, which I never mentioned, and he was very attentive to help me in and out of the kayak. A true gentleman. We found shark teeth & a few other goodies on the islands. The sandwiches were very... More

My husband, Dave, our friends Nate and Anahita, and I had such a wonderful time kayaking with Don on the Black River and through the Three Sisters Swamp. During our trip, Don was an awesome guide and provided great fun-facts about the wildlife and Cypress trees. We didn't have a lot of kayaking experience, but by the end of our... More

My husband and I had an enjoyable and memorable kayaking trip on the Cape Fear River. We highly recommend Mahanaim Adventures, who provided us with a great guide, a picnic dinner, and a perfect timed trip to experience the sunset. We will definitely be back when we are in Wilmington again.

My husband and I took the guided tour to Shark's Tooth Island with our 2 kids, ages 10 and 12. We chose tandem kayaks with the kids and were glad we did-- The winds and current would have made kayaking solo tough for our children. Don, our guide, was very concerned with our group's safety and made sure throughout the... More

Excellent sunset tour. Don was knowledgeable of the wildlife, the island, the houses surrounding the beach and Wrightsville Beach. The kayaks were comfortable. We kayaked out to an island and had a gourmet picnic lunch that Mahanaim Adventures prepared. We got back in time to enjoy the sun setting. We will definitely be back soon.
