we have a lot of groups ask of about Tours on Oak Island. We do offer tours of Oak Island but we are located in downtown Southport. We are about a 15-20min drive from Oak Island, Caswell Beach, St. James, and Boiling Spring Lakes.
The tours and cruises we offer go to many different locations depending on the weather. The areas on oak island that we normally see are parts of Fort Caswell on the eastern tip of Oak Island. Fort Caswell was in Old fort used during the Civil War. It was also used during World War Two to monitor the Cape Fear River for German submarines. Another area we sometimes travel to is the back side of Oak Island down the Intracoastal Waterway or the ICW for short. This trip is very relaxing and much calmer than the Cape Fear River Tour. There are plenty of birds such as white ibis, great egrets, snowy egrets, and many different types of Herons. We also see the area the old fish factory used to sit on. After that if we have time we will go to the Old Oak Island Bridge. Before that Bridge was built there was an old swing bridge in place. That bridge would swing to the side and allow ships to pass by. Then it would swing shut and allow cars to go back to their normal traffic pattern. There are still some remains of he old swing bridge and if time allows us, we try to get as close as we can to the old swing bridge.
When coming to Southport from Oak Island, St. James, or any of the surrounding areas, don’t forget to eat of one of he delicious local restaurants such as Fishy Fishy or Provisions Company.
