Jarrett Bay Boatworks, a premier builder of custom sportfishing boats, began in 1986 when Randy Ramsey led the construction of a single 52-foot charter boat, Sensation, in an old tin shed. Since those humble beginnings, Jarrett Bay has constructed & delivered over 100 custom & semi-production sportfish boats and serviced tens of thousands of vessels.

Grab your pole and tackle box–the waters around the Outer Banks are home to a beautiful variety of fish ripe for the catch. Species include sea bass, trout, spot tail bass, tuna, and blue and white marlin. Whether you prefer to fish from the beach or plan to charter a boat for a full day on the water, there’s no shortage of opportunities for landing a fresh catch during your stay.
This historical maritime treasure was constructed in 1859 on the southern Outer Banks to alert incoming ships of the treacherous waters ahead. The 163-foot tall lighthouse is easily recognized by its bold black and white diamond markings and was fully automated in 1950 to blink every 15 seconds, even during the day. Efforts to preserve the Cape Lookout Lighthouse in recent years are ongoing and may result in temporary closures. Be sure to check for current operating hours when planning your visit.
If you’re looking to collect some of the sea’s finest treasures, a visit to Sand Dollar Island is your surest bet. The island–technically considered a sandbar–is accessible by boat or ferry during low tide and has more of these unique sea urchins than anywhere else along the North Carolina coast. When you’re not hunting for shells and sand dollars, the island makes for a calm and relaxing getaway from the crowds. Sand Dollar Island is the perfect day outing–especially for families with children.
Built in 1700, this historical Beaufort landmark was said to be the temporary residence of the notorious swashbuckling pirate, Blackbeard. Over the span of 300+ years, a number of legends and ghost stories have been tied to the house and the people who lived and sheltered there–from naval captains to Civil War soldiers, and, of course, pirates. A prominent example of West Indies architecture, the home is a unique attraction to drop by for a quick look and a photo. (The home’s interior is not open to the public).
Modeled after a provincial French eatery, Beaufort Grocery is the perfect stop for a cozy lunch or upscale dinner. Homey yet refined, the restaurant’s lunch menu features soups, salads, and sandwiches. The evening dinner offerings are sophisticated and delicious, with options like duck two ways, roasted rack of lamb, and smoked sea salt seared tuna. The desserts are equally impressive and unique– made in-house and rotated regularly. To-go orders and picnic baskets are available for purchase so you can enjoy a spectacular lunch anywhere.
A local favorite of Morehead City, the Redfish Grill and Bar is a one-stop shop for fresh local seafood and a cozy, casual atmosphere. Order a round of ceviche, bacon-wrapped scallops, or crab dip for the table before digging into a wide selection of delicious entrees, including crab cakes, stuffed flounder, Black Angus ribeye, or Cajun shrimp and grits. The restaurant is first come, first served, so no reservations are necessary.
