Sightseeing

The Ferry is closed temporarily for upgrades. Undoubtedly one of the best deals in town is the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry ride. Costing a mere $5 for a carload, this convenient way to get back and forth from Southport to historic Fort Fisher, the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher, and Kure and Carolina Beaches is not only cost-effective, it's a fun and scenic ride. Pay attention to the schedule and arrive early, especially during the busy summer months; reservations are not accepted. Any size car, RV or trailer licensed for highway use can be accommodated for a variable fee. Pets are allowed but must be leashed or remain in your vehicle at all times. You may bring stale bread to feed the birds - just be sure to feed them at the stern! For full details visit the website.

Until the last few months of the Civil War, Fort Fisher kept North Carolina's port of Wilmington open to blockade-runners supplying necessary goods to Confederate armies inland. By 1865, the supply line through Wilmington was the last remaining supply route open to Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. When Ft. Fisher fell after a massive Federal amphibious assault on January 15, 1865, its defeat helped seal the fate of the Confederacy. Hours and Location Tuesday – Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Closed Sunday, Monday, and most major holidays Admission is free 1610 Ft. Fisher Blvd. South Kure Beach, NC 28449
