Island hopping over to the nearby Ocracoke Island just got a lot easier thanks to the newly added passenger ferry, better known as the “Ocracoke Express”. This new transportation option shuttles guests from the Hatteras Ferry Terminal to Silver Lake on Ocracoke Island in a matter of 70 minutes.
At approximately 50 miles long, Hatteras Island is one of the longest stretches of island in the continental US. It is also one of the least populated areas on the Outer Banks, making it a fantastic spot to relax, fish and soak in the sun. Here at Midgett Realty, we come from a long line of Hatteras residents who take pride in our community and all it has to offer. We're happy to share Outer Banks news and fun Hatteras activities with locals and visitors alike, as you enjoy this special place.
