Boat or Ferry
“Oregon Inlet Fishing Center is great way to see the daily catch of fish from one of the sport fishing fleets. The captains go out daily to catch tuna, mahi-mahi, wahoo, king mackerel, and more! You can book a charter there or just head down around 3PM to see the boats come in with their catch. There are restrooms, tackle shop, gift shop, and a convenience store on site. There is also a public boat ramp and Coast Guard station on site. ”
