Boaters and fishermen will appreciate the town’s seven marinas with deep sea fishing charter boats and golfers will find a host of courses within a few miles of town. It’s easy to get to your new Beaufort home by land, sea or air- NC Route 70 offers convenient access to I-95, the Intracoastal Waterway passes along the waterfront and the Morehead City- Beaufort Regional Airport is just minutes from downtown.
Beaufort is proud to be the home of the North Carolina Maritime Museum featuring artifacts recovered from the shipwreck thought to be Blackbeard the Pirate’s flagship as well as the Duke University Marine Laboratory where scientists study conservation issues in coastal and oceanic ecosystems.
