Pull up your boat or kayak and let the interpretive signs take you on a self-guided tour! The platform at the end of the boardwalk is a great place for birding and on a clear day, there's a view of the Cape Lookout lighthouse. You might even see the horses if you are lucky.

It worked in the Alligator River and on Albemarle Sound for well over a century, most of the time under the ownership of the Sawyer family. Luther G. Sawyer and his son, Steve, donated the boat to the North Carolina Maritime Museum in 1992, and it currently is on exhibit in the Boat Shed in Beaufort.
