Deep blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean greet the bright tan sands of Cape Hatteras National Seashore where a lone chair waits
Saving You a Seat

National Park Service

Feel the fine grains of sand between your toes as you head out to the best surfing location in the eastern United States of America, look up at one of the darkest skies east of the Mississippi River, cast your line into the surf, watch a myriad of wildlife migrate through, or take a deep breath of fresh sea air as you put your worries behind. All these and more recreational opportunities await you at Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

Join a park ranger for programs throughout the National Seashore to learn more and experience your national park in meaningful ways. Check at visitor centers for program times and locations.
