The state of North Carolina is known for its traditional Southern charms and its proximity to both rivers, lakes, and the Atlantic Ocean. It features many historical points of interests and annual festivals, and there are numerous water activities to enjoy. Boaters can easily find a well-run marina near town to explore the region’s many attractions.

Given North Carolina’s towns and their ideal locations between the rivers and the ocean, there are many different adventure opportunities for visitors to enjoy. This state is close to a variety of bodies of water, many of which are only a short drive away from the well known towns and cities like Charlotte and Wilmington.

When visiting North Carolina, we recommend visiting Lake Norman. The lake is known to be the lakeside of the destination of Charlotte— the largest manmade body of water in North Carolina. The area gets to experience seasoned climates, so boaters can enjoy a vast selection of water experiences that they might not be able to try as easily elsewhere. The water activities in the Charlotte area are as varied as the waters themselves, with boaters being able to schedule and rent guided fishing charters, powerboats, yachts, sailboats, canoes and kayaks. If you’re looking to rent a boat on Lake Norman, check out some of the GetMyBoat boat hire that are docked on All Seasons Marina.

Another location that is filled with water experiences North Carolina's Mountain Island Lake. The lake can be found northwest of Charlotte, following the course of Catawba River. Although the main function for this lake is to provide fresh water access to the residents of Charlotte, Mountain Island Lake is also a publicly open boating spot of locals and visitors of North Carolina. Fishing is one of the most popular activities in Mountain Island Lake primarily because they can try the brackish waters of the Catawba River. Guided fishing charters and boat hire is available for interested anglers visiting the lake. Expect to catch a variety of fish like bluegill, largemouth bass, and catfish

The Outer Banks of North Carolina is also a destination where many people like to spend their time on the water. The Outer Banks is a barrier of islands of the coast of North Carolina and famously known as the country’s first National Seashore. Their endless shores, open sea beaches, vacation homes, boat hire, and diving sites makes this a popular destination for many visitors traveling to North Carolina. As for on the water activities, the Outer Banks does not disappoint. Expect to find sail boats, jet skis, motor boats, fishing charters, kayaks, and canoes to rent out during your stay.

Aside from water activities in North Carolina, the state also hosts a number of exciting festivals that celebrate a wide range of art forms. Cucalorus is a renowned independent film festival, and the Cape Fear Independent Film Network puts on an annual film festival for those interested in filmography and visual arts. Music lovers might want to see if their boating trip coincides with one of several music festivals that take place annually in Wilmington, such as the North Carolina Jazz Festival and the Cape Fear Blues Festival. There’s even an azalea festival – the North Carolina Azalea Festival – which is sponsored by the Cape Fear Garden Club, and takes place every spring with a street fair, concert series, interactive displays, home and garden tours, exhibits, a circus, art shows, and a parade.

North Carolina offers the quintessential Southern town experience while also offering both freshwater and saltwater attractions. Its historical and cultural features add to the natural beauty of its surroundings, while its water activities and marinas will ensure a lasting appeal for boaters everywhere. Boaters will never forget the times that they have enjoying in-town festivals, historic sites, and water adventures in North Carolina.

    John made our boat rental so easy for the first time renting and going out on Lake Lanier. He was highly professional and went over everything we needed to know before sending us on our way. His boat is beautiful and made for a very comfortable ride on the lake.

    Classic Pontoon Boat For Rent - Lake Lanier, Gainesville, GA

    John did a thorough and thoughtful job with pontoon boat safety & operation knowledge transfer. As a fellow captain I appreciated his approach. John’s boat is in great shape and our boating excursion on the north end of the lake was a lot of fun.
