Atlantic Ocean with While Tale

A Whale of a Time at Frying Pan Tower: Restoring History, Protecting Wildlife

Here at FPTower Inc., our mission goes beyond simply restoring a historic landmark called Frying Pan Tower. We’re dedicated to protecting and preserving the incredible environment surrounding the tower, fostering education and research for future generations.

A Surprise Encounter

Recently, our team at Frying Pan Tower had a truly unforgettable experience. While gazing out at the vast expanse of the Atlantic from our recreation window, we were treated to a magnificent sight: a North Atlantic Right Whale, breaching and frolicking about 1,000 feet southeast of the tower!

This critically endangered species finds vital habitat in the shallow waters surrounding North Carolina, and witnessing their playful behavior served as a powerful reminder of the beauty and fragility of our marine environment.

Ocean Stewardship Through Observation

The 135-foot-tall Frying Pan Tower offers a unique vantage point for observing the wonders of the ocean. Our high-definition camera sits atop the tower, continuously scanning the surrounding waters in real-time. This live stream, broadcasted on various social media platforms, allows viewers worldwide to witness the incredible marine life that calls this area home.

More Than Just a Tower

Frying Pan Tower serves as a testament to human ingenuity and a vital platform for scientific discovery. By restoring and preserving this historic structure, we gain a valuable tool for understanding and protecting the delicate balance of our oceans.
