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.

Though they seem like calm cruisers, boats in the Hurricane FunDeck series can unleash their power at the blink of an eye. Like a beefed up pontoon, FunDeck models are perfect for a family that wants the luxury and comfort of a pontoon, but the speed, power and performance of a deck boat. Instead of depending on pontoons to keep the boat afloat, FunDeck models utilize our exclusive Category 5 Hull to create the smoothest, most stable ride possible while delivering unmatched performance. FunDeck boats provide the most space, comfortable seating and accessories of the Hurricane family without sacrificing much power.

Landmark

Frying Pan Shoals Light Tower

In the shoals off the convergence (where they merge) of the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean, the Frying Pan Light Tower has emitted an automated beacon since 1979, when its crew was removed. The platform rests on four, eighty-foot steel legs. The tower extends forty feet above water and forty feet below to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. The tower is equipped with a fog horn, radio beacon, and computer in addition to the automated light. This adapted Gulf Coast oil drilling platform, known as a "Texas Tower," was built in Louisiana and brought by barge to Frying Pan Shoals in 1966. Prior to the light tower, lightships had marked the shoals for 112 successive years with only a four-year break during the Civil War. The first Frying Pan Lightship was anchored in 1854 in the shoals. Its two, forty-foot high lights helped guide sailors into the Cape Fear River and to the port of Wilmington. Only fear by officials that a hurricane would blow the lightship from its anchorage brought the end of the long tenure of Frying Pan Lightships.
