Bald Head Island Ferry
For most of the year, ferries leave the mainland on the hour and the island on the half-hour, beginning at 7 a.m. The winter schedule may be abbreviated, and the summer schedule expanded.
Round-trip tickets cost $23.00 for adults, $12.00 for children ages 3-12. There is no charge for children ages two and younger. Tram service to your island destination may be provided based on ticket type and availability. A discounted "no-frills" ticket is available at the Bald Head Island Marina for same-day round-trips that originate on the island and require no baggage handling or tram service.
Tram reservations should be made by calling (910) 457-5003 or online at www.baldheadislandferry.com.
General Lot Parking is $10 a day Memorial Day-Labor Day and $8 a day the remainder of the year. A ticket is issued from an electronic parking device upon entering the lot. You will need to present this ticket to the parking lot attendant for payment upon exiting the lot.
If you’re coming to the island just for the day and won’t be needing tram service, you can rent a golf cart by the hour or by the day from Riverside Adventure Company, located a short distance from the ferry landing. Advance reservations are recommended by calling (910) 457-4944.
