We offer group trips, events, team building activities for groups starting with 12 people and up. Whether you have a family gathering, corporate event, team building activity, youth groups like Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Y Guides, churches, military groups, and others – we’ve got you covered! We operate on two NC rivers: Cape Fear River and Deep River, covering a total of 43 river miles. We offer calm relaxing paddling, river-tubing opportunities and exciting, challenging river-sections with Class I-III rapids (depending on water level). We also operate a riverfront, delicious, American-Style restaurant called Mermaid Point, located right next-door to Cape Fear River Adventures in Lillington. Full bar, warm & welcoming indoor seating, outdoor patio seating, live music and plenty of outside room for any activity is all available for that perfect day out and about with friends! All our regular river trips are suitable for group outings. We offer meal options before, after or even during your river trip. For smaller groups, we offer either catering style serving or ordering “off the menu”. For larger groups, catering style dining is generally a better option. We also accommodate land-based group activities with optional private refreshments. Music bands, kids’ inflatables, and outside games can definitely be a part of your next event! Call us today to arrange your next perfect day out!
Any section that we operate on the Cape Fear River or Deep River (Endor Paddle) are suitable for a group trip. Decide if your folks would enjoy a calm paddling opportunity, river tubing, a longer day on the river, or if you might be up for more challenging and exciting sections on the water. Please see our Choosing River Trip guide and our Trip Summary page to go over the trips that we offer.
Welcome to Mermaid Point, which happens to be a significant place on the Cape Fear River, more about it later...

Delicious eats and drinks, full bar, and outdoor patio seating overlooking the beautiful Cape Fear River. It’s all available for your enjoyment on your next group event.

Play field games, invite a band, inflatable slides or trampolines for kids, bon-fire, it’s all easily accommodated right in front of the river in a beautiful setting as an optional addition to your group activities.
