Wilmington, North Carolina is situated on the beautiful Cape Fear River.

The Cape Fear River is a 202 miles long blackwater river in east central North Carolina. It flows into the Atlantic Ocean near Cape Fear, from which it takes its name.

A blackwater river is a river with a deep, slow-moving channel that flows through forested swamps and wetlands. As vegetation decays in the water, tannins are leached out, resulting in transparent, acidic water that is darkly stained, resembling tea or coffee.
