Journey by Air, Land or Sea
With the right planning, the journey to your destination can add to the fun of your coastal North Carolina vacation. If you're coming from the north, consider taking the scenic route and stretch your legs on a ferry ride from Fort Fisher to Southport. Arriving and leaving from Wilmington's International Airport is typically a breeze because of the airport's small size and distance from the island. By far the most popular way to arrive to the island is via a road trip through North Carolina's scenic highways and byways.
