Fun Fall Activities on Roanoke Island

Fun Fall Activities on Roanoke Island

Fall is the perfect time to book a trip to Roanoke Island. Whether it be avoiding the large amount of tourist that flock to the island in the summer, taking in the natural beauty that can be seen or enjoying one of the many fun activities the island has to offer, there’s really no end to the things you can see and explore at this time of year.

If you’re planning a trip to Roanoke Island this fall, be sure to do your research and consider these three fun activities. Each of these are perfect for families, weekend getaways with that special someone or anything in between.

Outer Banks Seafood Festival

Held in mid-October, The Outer Banks Seafood Festival is one of the more anticipated events of the fall season. Located at the Waterfront Event Site in Nags Head, the festival offers a wide selection of seafood creations that every seafood lover will enjoy. The event will also offer other food and drinks as well as live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, arts and crafts, and other children’s activities.

This year’s family-friendly festival will be held on October 16th from 10:30am to 6:00pm.

Dolphin Tours at Wanchese Marina

Another fun activity for families is the Harbor Star dolphin tour at Wanchese Marina. On this tour you will have the opportunity to see bottlenose dolphins up close and personal in their natural environment.

Visitors regularly see the dolphins feeding, playing and teaching their babies, all while riding in the spacious and remodeled 50-foot Harbor Star cruise boat.  

Dolphin tours are available four times a day until October 31. No matter what your itinerary may be for your trip to Roanoke, we strongly suggest taking a few hours for this thrilling experience.

OBX Ghost Tours

If you’re a fan of Halloween and are looking for something on the spookier side, the OBX Ghost Tour is a great way to get into the spirit of the season.

This guided tour will bring you through downtown Manteo, where your guide will recount spooky stories from the haunted history of the island.   

Roanoke Island and the Outer Banks have long been considered to have some of the most haunted beaches in America, so be prepared for a “fright” filled evening.

No matter what your plans may be for your fall visit to Roanoke Island, NC, make sure you have a comfortable and convenient place to stay while in town. Island House of Wanchese Bed & Breakfast is the ideal option when you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing place to rest after a long day on the town.
