A Hidden Gem, Cape Lookout Harbor


Over the years we have been privileged to visit some truly wonderful anchorages in remote places like Greenland, Svalbard and Labrador. But you don’t have to travel to the high latitudes to discover a real gem.

On the way south this fall we spent five glorious days at Cape Lookout Harbor. Despite the anchorage’s location just 10 miles from the bustling harbour of Beaufort, North Carolina and even though the annual fall migration of boats down the Intracoastal Waterway and offshore was still in full swing, we rarely had more than half a dozen boats sharing this anchorage that can easily accommodate a hundred.
