The Crystal Coast is best explored from the water, and Morehead City Ferry Service will take explorers to some of the most remote and beautiful corners of this long stretch of Southern Outer Banks shoreline. Launching from the heart of Downtown Morehead City along Evans Street, patrons who utilize Morehead City Ferry Service for a cruise or a taxi ride to the outlying barrier islands will be treated to full afternoons of sun and fun along the pristine sand.

Visitors will find plenty of regions to explore just outside of Morehead City, and the Morehead City Ferry Service offers transport and tours to a number of notable offshore regions. Visitors can take a trip to Bird Shoal and Carrot Island, (part of the Rachel Carson Reserve), the aptly named Sand Dollar Island, (where fantastic shelling can be enjoyed), or “Party Island,” (which is found near the causeway between Morehead City and Atlantic Beach.) In addition, patrons can enjoy a full cruise that’s dedicated to nature and sea life, star gazing, backyard cookouts, and veritably everything in between, which are all guided by professional crews and captains. With a swarm of adventures just waiting for water fans, Morehead City Ferry Service provides a fine introduction to the best aspects of the Crystal Coast.
