Visit one of the most unique and beautiful locations on the North Carolina Coast. Although only 28 nautical miles from Wrightsville Beach, Bald Head Island feels like a world away. The northernmost area in the US where palm trees grow naturally, BHI has endless marshes and forests along with an abundance of small town charm.

To travel by boat and stay aboard only enhances the natural beauty and truly gives the feel of the island lifestyle. The trip from Wrightsville Beach is fantastic as the scenery changes constantly.

You’ll start by heading south on the Intracoastal Waterway down to Carolina beach. Next we head under Snows Cut Bridge and out into the Cape Fear River. Once in the shipping channel we’ll encounter Sunny Point which is the largest military amunitions terminal in the world.

After avoiding the off limit areas we’ll meander down the river until reaching the quaint town of Southport. From there it’s just a quick trip accross the mouth of the river into the Bald Head Island Marina.

The Nautic Star 230 Black provides exceptional comfort and plenty of power which allows for a smooth ride down the river while still making good time.

Grab a golf cart or bike and explore the car free streets, play 18 holes on the championship golf course, relax on the pristine beaches or make the trek up to the top of the 1817 lighthouse “Old Baldy”. Whatever you decide to do, a private cruise down to Bald Head Island will make it a vacation to remember.
