A visit to the town of Wanchese is a visit to a charming, quiet village whose heritage in the fishing industry is unmistakable. Throughout history, the town has flourished as a fishing town due to the proximity to Oregon Inlet and the surrounding bodies of sound waters. Today, it is home to the Wanchese Seafood Industrial Park which serves as a hub for East Coast-based marine businesses such as seafood processing plants, boat builders, and fishing supply vendors. Although the marinas primarily house commercial fishing charters, there are also plenty of tourist charters available.
