Bald Head Island

Enjoy a day of fishing, dining, nature trails, beaches and much more on Bald Head Island. The Island has all the activities and is only accessible by boat and will guarantee you a day of relaxation or a fun afternoon lunch at its famous Mojos Restaurant. And if you’re looking to spend the weekend away, Southport Boat Rentals can get there; we will be happy to provide you with transportation to and from the island. Please give us a call for more information.


With area species such as Flounder, Trout, Sheepshead, Red Drum, Black Drum, and the occasional Cobia, you will know why the fishing in our area is legendary! The boats come equipped with rod holders, coolers, fish finders, live bait wells, and plenty of room to store your gear. The only things you’ll need to bring are your fishing poles and tackle. If you don’t have any gear we do provide guided inshore fishing trips and we will have everything ready when you show up. If you have your own gear and rent the boat to captain yourself we will keep you informed on where the fish are biting and how to get there. If you have any questions give Southport Boat Rentals a call anytime!

“The Point” on the west end is the mouth of the waterway at Lockwood Folly inlet. Well known for its fishing and scenic natural beauty, it should be on the “must do” list for any trip to our area. There is a large sandbar  you can pull up to and drop the anchor for a quick lunch or an all day hangout!
