Bald Head Island, North Carolina is located where the mouth of the mighty Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Fear is known by mariners around the world for Frying Pan Shoals, an area of sandbars extending from the Cape that makes navigating tricky, but the fishing excellent.

*We offer offshore dive charters to the Frying Pan Tower with a Certified Dive Master.  An easy 60-70 ft. depth dive which gives an experienced diver a chance to see a variety of large fish stacked up by the 100's (amberjack, barracuda and grouper) or maybe pick up a 20 lb. lobster from one of Captain Paul's secret hot  spots
