“Last year The Flying Pirate was my first half marathon, and after hearing all of those medals clinking at the after party, I had to sign up for the Double Dare Challenge this year. I also bullied a group of five runners to come with me from Raleigh, and everyone loved it.  It was phenomenal. I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for such a good race!  I am one of the slower runners, so I spent more time on the course than many and I know what I'm talking about! ;)”

Hatteras - Ocracoke Ferry

Hatteras - Ocracoke Ferry

The Hatteras / Ocracoke ferry is one of the most popular of the seven coastal ferry routes that are orchestrated and managed by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT.) Open for everyone, with daily runs that occur 365 days a year, the short 40-45 minute island-hopping ferry provides an integral link for Ocracoke Island to the rest of the Outer Banks, and provides visitors of all seasons with an exciting way to enjoy a coastal day trip. For a little bit of completely free entertainment, hop aboard via car, truck, bike or even just on foot, and discover a scenic boat ride that's just as thrilling as discovering the island of Ocracoke itself.
