The Carolina Runner

The Blockade Runner Beach Resort is at it again with a wonderful addition for their guests! We are also very grateful that they are offering this added feature to this year’s Flotilla experience.

The Carolina Runner is a custom-built 40′ craft that includes a bar, loading ramp for easy shore access to Masonboro Island, complete modern toilet facilities, and many other amenities for groups up to 40. We are going to run several tours per night for the Door to Dock lights tour that the public will be able book online.
