Sunset Harbor

DESCRIPTION: From this launch you can paddle East or West on the Intracoastal, or you can paddle South and turn east on the Davis Canal. You may also travel up the Lockwood Folly River from here.

DIRECTIONS: From Wilmington, take US 17 South towards Myrtle Beach. Turn left on Rt. 211 and drive about 5 miles to Sunset Harbor Road SE. Take this road to the end, where the boat access can be found.

Difficulty Easy to Moderate, depending on how far you decide to travel.
Hazards Boat traffic and wakes in the Intracoastal, potential choppiness in open sections of water.
Time Depends on how far you want to go.
Serenity Not much if you travel east, although the waterway and Davis Canal are scenic. Traveling west you can enter marshes that are off the beaten path.
