Cape Fear Sailing Charters
A typical trip includes the Intracoastal Waterway, the Cape Fear River, and a turn on the Atlantic. From Southport Marina in downtown Southport, our journey to the Atlantic Ocean takes us past the Oak Island Lighthouse and historic Southport to the juncture of the Cape Fear River. Battery Island and Fort Caswell salute us as we venture out into the Atlantic, passing between Bald Head Island and Oak Island. What a thrill to see the open water with the rollers breaking on the beach at Bald Head Island, Frying Pan Shoal, and Jay Bird Shoal! Come sail with us as we introduce you to the way of life of the sea.
Our sailing charters are perfect for you next big event! Whether you are celebrating a wedding, anniversary, birthday, graduation, or any other bid day, we would love to celebrate with you!
