Cape Fear Riverboats Founder Capt. Carl Marshburn Recieves NCTIA Award For Tourism Contributions | Wilmington & Island Beaches, 11 Mar 2012 [cached]
Wilmington, N.C.: Cape Fear Riverboats founder and Wilmington native Captain Carl Marshburn has been awarded the 2013 Charles J. Parker Tourism Excellence Award for an Individual. The annual award, given by the North Carolina Travel Industry Association (NCTIA), recognizes outstanding contributions made by individuals to the state's tourism industry.
This year's award recipient, Captain Carl Marshburn, is a boat captain, businessman, and a strong advocate for tourism and history. In 1987 when there were only a handful of visitor attractions located in Downtown Wilmington, Marshburn envisioned the historic district as a major tourist attraction. He saw the need for a riverboat cruise to accurately interpret the region's nautical history, natural beauty and the unique ecology of the Cape Fear River. Naysayers gave the business only six months, but against all odds, Marshburn proved them wrong as his cruises gained in popularity. Marshburn vowed to provide Wilmington's citizens and visitors with a cruise boat they could be proud of, and 25 years later he still honors that promise.
Kim Hufham, New Hanover County TDA president/CEO and past president of NCTIA, presented the award to Capt. Carl Marshburn during the North Carolina Tourism Leadership Conference Awards Ceremony on October 3rd at Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club in Southern Pines.
"Captain Carl Marshburn is a tourism leader.
has long been the motto of Captain Carl Marshburn and the Cape Fear Riverboats crew as they continue to offer the finest in Southern hospitality, entertaining hundreds of thousands of passengers who have boarded the Henrietta II and III for nearly 12,000 cruises.
