Casual and serious sportsmen are attracted by opportunities
to hunt and fish. Throw in a line dockside or sign up
on a large group or a small private deep sea charter.
The New River Inlet is ten minutes away for ocean trolling
or gulf stream trips. The inlet area is federal land
so you may drive to the north end out on the beach and
join the community of fishing families who fish and
cookout or tailgate picnic from their vehicle. The fall
months of September to November are the prime time when
the schools of fish run along the coast (including flounder,
spot, mullet, and bluefish) then proceed up the Intracoastal
Waterway. Fishermen crowd the Sea View Fishing Pier
all night long when the fish are running. Or bring a
gill net and pull in a cooler full. You can get them
cleaned at the local fish market or do it yourself out
back like I d o. Catch your own bait in the nearby pond
or stream or throw out a casting net for about an hour
along the canal and bring home a catch of shrimp. Blue
crabs can also be caught in cages thrown out in the
canal. Clams can be raked in the shallows among the
marshland islands or gig flounder after dark in the
60-foot wide canal. Fresh oysters are also popular in
the fall and winter months.
Duck hunting: in
the winter time is an attraction in the more remote
areas north via the AIWW.
High energy sports:
available in the area include parasailing, scuba diving,
jetskiing, tubing, cycling, and surfing. Near the high
rise bridge is a large dirt bike run and a magnificent
golf course at the North Shore Country Club. There are
numerous other courses as well.
Restaurants and Shopping:
If you need anything or just love to shop or eat out,
the Jacksonville area (30 minutes north) has one of the
largest and newest shopping districts including a Super
Wal Mart, Lowes, Home Depot, electronics stores, movies
and almost every restaurant you could name. Sneads Ferry,
North Topsail Beach, and Surf City offer every kind of
seafood restaurant and fresh fish market like the Crab
Pot, Shrimp Shack, Buddies, Mollies, or steaks at Cheri's,
elegant roof top dining at St. Regis, Italian Bella Luna,
and Rick's (awesome) Sports Bar. Of course we have fast
food favorites like Hardees, McDonalds, Dominoes, and
Subway. The Shrimp Shack next door to Ricks's sells fresh
seafood, wine, and gifts. A day trip to the Wilmington
area offers cultural attractions of the arts (pop and
classical Revolutionary and Civil War museums, cemetery,
the Battleship USS North Carolina, Fort Fisher, train
and cotton museum on old Front St. on the downtown riverfront
of the Cape Fear River, and much more. You might visit
UNC Wilmington or explore the beautiful old city park.
Getting off the island is fast and easy because this end
of the island is short and is undeveloped and thinly populated.
The high rise bridge off the island is a quick conduit
to Sneads Ferry where two other highways lead out to 4
lane US 17. Avoid the Surf City drawbridge area when checking
in or out. Not the least of the treasures you may find
here are the warm, friendly people who live and work here
and come to relax and recreate themselves here in this
small town paradise. Now, bon voyage and full speed ahead
from the Brewer family, owners of Boaters Launch, to yours.
