We rent sailboats from Kevin at the marina. You need to check the schedule for barges/container ships coming through the channel headed to/from Wilmington port. The area where river, intracoastal waterway, and ocean converge can get busy at times.

Beautiful views. I love harbors and this one didn’t dissappoint ! Not as big as most but has everything you need plus there is a little restaurant which is nice for breakfast especially when you sit outside to enjoy views

This is the largest power and sailboat marina in the area, it is not the loading point to bald head as someone else indicated. A full serve location close to town, and an easy walk to the restaurants.

We walked in the evenings and loved the walk to the marina, particularly the gazebo walk out over the marsh at night, its lighted all the way, although you might want to wear some mosquito repellent! The movie Safe Haven was filmed here.
