About this spot
Fishing and marinas are an essential element of the Outer Banks culture. Charter boat captains and avid fishermen arrive at the marina docks in the early morning hours to begin preparations for the day. The fishing boats look formidable with their tall, sweeping outriggers, designed to increase the spread of the fishing lines and avoid entanglements. The rear of the charter boats are usually set up with 3 chairs, one of which is a fighting chair where fishermen and their rods can be strapped down when attempting to reel in a really big fish. In the early morning hours, and at dusk, the docks are lit, giving the entire area a enticing glow. Oregon Inlet is the channel that connects the Atlantic Ocean with to Pamilico Sound. This is the northernmost connection between the inside waters and the ocean on the Outer Banks. As a result, it is very popular with fishermen. Sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular at Oregon Inlet. Hatteras Harbor lies near the southern tip of Hatteras Island and also offers fishing access to the both the Inside waters and the Ocean. The Hatteras Harbor Marina is an ideal location for sunsets.
