Cape Lookout

See wild mustang horses at Cape Lookout National Seashore. The protected area comprises 3 barrier islands -- on Shackleford Banks is where you’ll see the horses. Take a ferry from nearby Harkers Island, and explore the undeveloped islands that await. In addition to horse watching, enjoy fishing, shelling, camping, climbing Cape Lookout Lighthouse and touring historic villages (Cape Lookout and Portsmouth Village).
