To the south of North Carolina's town of Wilmington, and just off the coast from Southport, lies a cluster of islands carved up by inlets and creeks. Smith Island and Bald Head Island are the largest of the group and add to this southern coastal prominent that separates Onslow and Long bays. Shifting sands, lying just below the Atlantic's surface, extend 28 miles from Bald Head Island and the entrance to the Cape Fear River. This navigational nightmare, called Frying Pan Shoals, gives away the reason for the name Cape Fear.
