Currituck Sound is a shallow body of water bounded on the east by the northern most part of the Outer Banks. These are referred to as the "core banks" Currituck is known as the "Sportsman's Paradise" as is a major wintering spot for many types of waterfowl. On a clear day you will see the Currituck Light on your port side to the south as you pass Knotts island. Right beside the lighthouse is the Whale head Club, a grand old hunt club that has been restored and is open to the public for tours. As you travel south you will pass Churches Island on the port side and Bell Island on the starboard. There are many submerged pilings and other hazards in this area.
