Experience the Ultimate Eco-Tourism Adventure Weekend at Frying Pan Tower!

Discover a world of natural wonders and thrilling experiences on Frying Pan Tower, located 32 miles off the coast of North Carolina and rises 135′ above the Atlantic Ocean. Join us for an unforgettable weekend where you can immerse yourself in the tranquility of serene sunrises, fiery sunsets, full moon gazing, and Milky Way starlit nights in a pristine dark-sky environment.

Relaxation Beyond Compare

Relax and unwind on the expansive helipad, where you can recline in a deck chair or gently sway in a hammock while embracing the cool ocean breeze. It’s a unique vantage point that allows you to connect with a 360-degree view of the ocean.

Underwater Adventures

When the elements align, take an exhilarating ride on the hoist down to the sea, where you can swim amidst a vibrant underwater world teeming with brilliantly colored baitfish, patrolled by razor-toothed barracuda, and observed by sand tiger sharks below. Whether you’re a surface snorkeler or an experienced SCUBA diver, this is an adventure of a lifetime.
