Carolina Coastal Maritime Adventures

Carolina Coastal Maritime Adventures Unique Photographs & Artworks of Carolina Wild Horses. Guided Individualized Photo Shoots and Nature Field Trips. Preserve your memories in Vacation-Art.

Hello friends. I invite you to browse and enjoy a new website CarolinaWaterFun.com and its companion page /NCwildhorses which is dedicated to sharing unique, original photographs and artworks of the NC Wild Horses and the beaches they roam. I intend this to also foster interest in learning about and assisting in the preservation of the local heritage and culture that the wild horses are so much a part of and have infused with a special connection. Carolina Coastal Maritime Adventures practices, supports and encourages the preservation, conservation and protection of all resources natural and cultural at the Cape Lookout National Seashore These wild horses represent a free and independent spirit that is emblematic of our colonial and pioneering days. The wild horses continue to live and roam as they have done for nearly 400 years. Few other places on this continent offer us the opportunity to view this level of raw living and to be a part of the modern co-dependency. To glimpse these wild horses playing, foraging and socially interacting on the open salt-marshes and in the maritime forests is to observe a very special existence that profoundly impacts our sense of self and shines a bright light on an almost forgotten past way of life. Operating as “Carolina Coastal Maritime Adventures” I seek to capture the NC Wild Horses in their wilderness element and to bring images of their natural behavior to as many interested viewers as possible. Our page NCWildhorses will keep you up to date on new photographs, videos, cultural history research and field trips to observe and photograph. You are invited to submit your pictures, observations and related stories. Our images will be available from our web site CarolinaWaterFun.com. Adventurers can also plan and schedule personalized field trips on our boat to selected NC barrier islands and guided photo shoots to discover wild horses on the Cape Lookout National Seashore, Shackleford Banks, the Rachel Carson Reserve, the Crystal Coast & enjoy sightseeing along the Beaufort and Morehead City NC waterfronts. Our photos are available as unique Gicleé artwork with dazzling pigmented inks on museum quality canvas, as metal substrate infusions, as laser etched crystal and as traditional high-quality colored prints suitable for framing. Our artwork, named Vacation-Art™ captures vacation, wild horse sights and beach memories to share with family and friends and to re-live for a lifetime. Check us out, “Like” us on Facebook, comment on our posts, share your experiences and when you have time come down and see us. We’ll be happy to see you and to assist you in starting your collection of Wild Horse & Beach Vacation-Art™. Enjoy. Your friend, Captain Richard USCG Master

Horse pen on Shackleford Banks NC. Graceful free-ranging Wild horses would see this view as they galloped West during one of the many roundups since 1898. Fencing extends from the ocean beach to the shores in Back Sound. Overgrown and in need of mending the fencing stands as a reminder of the Bankers' care and management of the earlier herds. Today's Banks visitors owe much to those who so carefully watch-over and care for the Wild Banker Horses past and present.

NW winds 5 to 10 kt...increasing to 10 to 15 kt this afternoon. If your Wild Horse sightseeing plans include a boat trip check your tide direction and winds for best times.

Here's a view of what the Beaufort Inlet can look like with a strong wind against the tide. Taken on Jan 4 from FT Macon State Park looking toward the West End of Shack.

Tide Prediction for Jan 23 - 25. If you're boating to Shackleford Banks for some Wild Horse sightseeing take note.
