Sail in the North Carolina Maritime Museum’s fleet of traditional wooden boats, cast a line with a cane pole, join in games or just relax and enjoy the music and spectacular view of Gallants Channel.

An old fashioned, family-oriented picnic and lots of activities are free.  

Maritime Day reflects the gratitude that Americans have for the maritime industry and the benefits it brings to the country. It also recognizes ships and seafarers who have held a special place in the nation's history.
