Cape Point, Ramp 43, March 1, 2016, Sunset

Tonight we pretty much had the Point to ourselves during sunset! With the exception of a handful of fisherman catching some dog sharks. Cape Point is where the north and south swell meet. Due to the two currents colliding, the Point is a great spot for shell hunting Often time referred to as the end of the world.

Cape Hatteras National Park Service often close down the point to all vehicle traffic, and often times not open for foot traffic either. Due to the nesting and mating of the non native piping plover birds. The random closing  of the Point has been an ongoing battle with the local fisherman and the park service.

The Point is a well known place year round, local and out of town fisherman gather with hopes to catch all types of fish, depending on the season. The tourist season attracts a ton of visitors from all over whom drive out to the point to spend their family vacation tailgating at the Point.

If you have never been and are vacationing on Hatteras Island, NC, it is worth spending the money on a visitor 4WD beach permit to drive out to Cape Point! Check out a few frames from tonight’s sunset session at Cape Point.
