My girlfriend and I were considering using our Jon Boat to putz around some of the other coastal areas in NC. If we launched from where the Ft. Fisher ferry picks up, is there a place to moor on the island without paying any fees?

Just curious as to the other ways to get to the island without using 2 different ferries. Thanks!

There is a creek that runs behind the marina on Bald Head which is easily accessible by a jon boat. There is a small beach area where the creek meets the river and you can beach your jon boat there. There is a walkway leading over to the marina from that small beach area. All land up to the high tide line on any island (including Bald Head) is public property so they can't charge you to beach your boat and I doubt they'd try to anyway. However, I don't recommend leaving the boat there for more than a few hours and definately not over night.
