Southport-Fort Fisher Ferry Switches to Off-Season Schedule

Residents and off-season visitors of Pleasure Island should note that the Southport-Fort Fisher Ferry will be switching over to its fall and winter schedule on Saturday, October 1st.

The Southport-Fort Fisher ferry, the only ferry that services New Hanover County, will put the seasonal change into effect tomorrow morning, with the first departure leaving Southport at 5:30 am.

While the off-season schedule won't differ very much from the peak season schedule, the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry will not be offering 10 am and 12:15 pm ferries leaving Southport, and there will be no more 10:45 am and 1 pm ferries leaving Fort Fisher during the weekdays.

The Saturday and Sunday schedules will remain the same throughout the year.

Ocean Rescue and Life Guard Services Come to an End with the Season

As the season comes to a close, so does the end of ocean rescue and life guard services in the Pleasure Island area. The regular lifeguard season runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day, with limited guards on patrol through mid-September. While the beach is still plenty enjoyable this time of year, it’s extremely important for swimmers and surfers to use caution while being active in the water as there is no one on duty to watch over them.


The Carolina Beach Police Department Annual Bicycle Rodeo

On Saturday, September 10th, the Carolina Beach Police Department (CBPD), in conjunction with the Town of Carolina Beach, hosts their annual Bicycle Rodeo, a free event from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Carolina Beach Recreation Center at 1121 N. Lake Park Blvd. in Carolina Beach. The event features bicycle safety information and demonstrations, safe riding habits, bicycle repairs, bicycle registration, raffles, free t-shirts, entertainment, games, and food.

Last year’s Bicycle Rodeo began with fittings for brand new bike helmets for kids, provided free of charge. Then they got to test their bicycle safety skills on an obstacle course with real-life situations that teaches kids to look all ways before crossing streets, walking their bikes safely across cross walks, recognizing traffic lights and stop signs, identifying rail road crossings, handling their bicycles correctly, and avoiding obstacles like stray dogs. The skills kids learn at the Rodeo help inspire confidence to ride their bikes safely and have fun doing it.
