Re: Safe Charter locations during Hurricane Season?
Ok, I'm in the process of pinning down a charter out of Oriental in the Pamlico Sound. I'd appreciate any suggestions from people who are familiar with the area. We prefer wild areas and anchorages, rather than marinas and towns. The charter operator suggested anchoring near the mouth of the North River.
I'm wondering if it's feasible to make it from Oriental to Cedar Island Wildlife Refuge. If it is, is there any place to get to landfall by tender, or is it all marsh and mangrove? The operator said that the prevailing winds make a sail to Ocracoke a bit challenging and unpleasant.
A trip to the outerbanks and Cape Lookout seem to not be feasible in a four day charter.
