Boat trips near Emerald Isle

I have read in the paper and in a few postings here that you can catch either ferries or private boats to out islands for shelling. Does anyone have details on this (where, who to contact, etc..) or know where to find them?

I'm not sure about the shelling, but you can check out Bear Island (Hammocks Beach State Park). A passenger ferry will take you there--very secluded.

Trips out of Beaufort are also available....everywhere you go on Emerald Isle are flyers that have ads for these types of trips. Loads to do in Beaufort and it has alot of history. Beautiful seaport town.

harkers island nc has ferry service:

cape lookout- 252-728-3575

local yokel- 252-728-2759

calico jacks- 252-728-3575

some of these will take you out and pick you back up when you want. i would suggest either near the light house or "wade shore" on shackleford banks because they have bathrooms. call and speak with them, see what they have to offer.
