1. Wilmington: Wrightsville Beach Sunset Sailboat Cruise
Discover offshore sailing, Intracoastal Waterway transits, or relax in secluded anchorages on this sunset sailboat cruise from Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington. Learn about sailing, marine life, and local ecology from your captain that has been sailing for over 30 years. Be greeted by your captain at the Trails End Boat Ramp and be escorted to the ship. Hop aboard and get acquainted with the spacious deck that provides passengers with unobstructed views. Go inside to the relaxing interior that is covered in warm hardwood. Make your way through the Intracoastal Waterway to uncover the dynamic beauty of the barrier islands that help to protect the shores of Wrightsville Beach from the full force of the Atlantic Ocean. Watch as the sun casts its pink and golden glow over the water. Keep an eye out for local birds that like to nest on the beach like the yellow-beaked 'least tern' and puffin-like 'black skimmer.' Return to your starting point at the end of your sailing tour.
