Southport stands at one of the world’s crossroads, where the mighty Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Her past is tied to both the river and the sea. It is a story of exploration, piracy and commerce; of pilotage, salvage and fishing.

The North Carolina Maritime Museum at Southport tells the story of the Cape Fear region’s people and their relationship to the water – a tale of tides, wind and ocean.

Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
