Discover Wrightsville Beach’s oasis of outdoor experiences that last well into autumn. Experience why our island was named one of the country’s best SUP hubs with a SUP Yoga class from Wrightsville SUP. Dive into our crystal blue waters for a WB Diving excursion. Beginners and experienced divers alike will enjoy a scuba exploration of historic shipwrecks located just off shore. Walk or jog around The Loop or stroll to the island's South End and look for migrating shorebirds. Navigate the waterways yourself with an ASA-certified sailing course from Blockade Runner Sailing Center or enjoy a private scenic sunset sail aboard Zoe, Soundside Adventures’ 35-foot sailboat. Thanks to fall’s milder temperatures, it’s easy to stay active in our island town on both land and sea.
