What became of the Henrietta II?

The Henrietta II has moved its port of call and even changed it’s name. According to Helen Ward, vice president of Cape Fear Riverboats Inc., the boat still delights seafaring partygoers under the name of Black Eyed Susan in Baltimore Harbor.

The Henrietta II graced our waterways from 1988 to 2000. It was replaced by a much larger boat, the Henrietta III. The newer riverboat can accommodate 600 people and hold up to three functions at once, whereas the Henrietta II could only carry 100 people and offer one function at a time. The Henrietta III also has a galley to prepare food, something that II did not offer.

What happened to the tour boat on Greenfield Lake?

Are Wilmington’s tour boats owned or operated by the city?
