Friends of ours just emailed me asking who, besides, St. James Plantation, has accessibility to the Intercoastal Waterway? I thought perhaps even Cape Fear River would suit their needs for a small boat to enter the water. They believe St. James is out of their ballpark financially and for the life of me, I can't think of any Brunswick County plantations? Any Wilmington/New Hanover? Thanks for the input, guys!

There are 4 public boat ramps (free) in both Brunswick County and New Hanover County, plus the one at Southport Marina that charges $5. No need to buy behind a gate in order to launch your boat.

If your friend is interested in Pender or Onslow County, there are numerous public boat ramps giving access to the Intra-Coastal Waterway.

We spent this morning kayaking on Dutchman Creek, which we accessed via the launch site at the Wildlife area on Fish Factory road. There are three excellent ramps, in the Wildlife area, there is no charge. This site provides easy/quick access to the Intracoastal.

WRP also has a ramp that provides access to the Intracoastal via the Lockwood Folly.

Although not on the scale of the SJP marina, WRP has the day marina at the Riverhouse on the Lockwood Folly and the corral where residents can store their boat, motorhome, trailer, etc. There is also a small day slip facility, on the Intracoastal to park a boat, while at the WRP beach house, on Holden beach.

You have listed boat ramps, but what about actual marinas if you don't want to trailer your boat?

As far as plantations in Brunswick County, the following have marinas: SeaScape, St James and Winding River Plantation. This was information I obtained from the Carolina Plantations site at: Retirement Communities North Carolina | Brunswick County Real Estate

There are other commercial marinas which you can locate in the yellow pages. A Google search turns up four in Southport, and one each in Ocean Isle Beach, South Brunswick and Supply.

This might be further inland than what you are looking for, however You can look at Northwest Creek Marina in New Bern / Fairfield Harbour.
