Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Southport:
Nostalgic, stunning and hospitable.
Long serving as a protective boating harbor, Southport is situated at the mouth of the Cape Fear River, the intracoastal waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. However, the city itself is noted for its quiet beauty and hospitality.
Sprawling oaks and historic homes set a nostalgic scene reminiscent of gentle, laid-back times. But don’t be fooled. Laden with antique shops, historic sites, restaurants, art galleries, parks, and the Southport Maritime Museum, there is much to do if you seek a little bustling activity.
Bald Head Island is well worth a day trip, featuring stunning natural environments. Stroll or relax on the beaches or visit one of many attractions here. Oak Island is also ideal for exploring and boasts the Oak Island Lighthouse in Caswell Beach.

Bras Across the WaterOctober 05, 2013
Our whimsical and fun event is designed to raise awareness of Breast Cancer, and to raise monies for the American Cancer Society in support of Breast Cancer research. The actual event consists of a carnival-type gathering on the docks in and around the Harbourgate Marina, with: -- Live radio and local TV broadcasts; -- A live band; -- A Bar-B-Que Cook-Off Contest; -- Local vendors; -- Breast cancer informational booths; -- A Chinese auction; -- Games, Raffles, and so forth. The bras which are collected are all attached to a rope in a “Chain-of-Hope.” The highlight of the event occurs when the collection of bras are literally “Strung Across the Water!” October 5, 2013 from noon until 4pm Call 843-399-8711 for more information
