Beaufort & Cape Fear Inlets

I''m going down the ICW this summer. I want to go offshore for the portion from Beaufort, NC to Cape Fear, NC. Can anyone who has done this share some local knowledge please? Are the inlets straighforward to navigate? Any offshore traffic to watch out for, e.g. fishing fleets, etc? Crew of just 2 and I expect a 20-24 hour passage, so some night sailing or motoring is planned. (the boat is 40'' w/ 6''1" draft.)
