Boat Access Areas & Marinas


Exploring the Brunswick Islands by waters is one of the best perspectives. If you've got a boat, kayak or paddleboard – whether it's your own, or one of our local adventure outfitters has hooked you up – you'll have access via public ramps and kayak and SUP launch sites to the Intracoastal Waterway, rivers and creeks located throughout our coastal towns.

Public access points and marinas, many of which are maintained by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, feature wide, paved ramps with plenty of parking space for vehicles and trailers. Additionally, there are many private marinas with daily, weekly and seasonal slip rentals as well as ship stores and fueling.
