Please plan ahead: Ferry--scheduled for maintenance January 6-April 6, 2020
Traveling through Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Fort Fisher on Pleasure Island leads you to the Southport-Fort Fisher Ferry Terminal. This "Drive On" Ferry leaves from the tip of Fort Fisher at the mouth of the Cape Fear River, and docks two miles from the historic town of Southport. The enjoyable 45 minute one-way trip is filled with unique, beautiful views along the Cape Fear River. Once the "all clear" is given you can leave your car and either go to the observation deck or to the front or rear of the ferry. This is a perfect scenic cruise or transportation for a day trip to Southport.
