It will take you about 20-25 minutes from King James Colony to reach the ferry, but isn’t that what Sunday drives are all about?

Passengers are welcome to get out of the car and explore the ferry, enjoy the views from the lounge or the observation deck. The trip is 45 minutes long, but don’t worry, restrooms are available in the lounge, as well as a vending machine or two. The best part is the whole adventure is absolutely FREE. That’s right, there is no charge to ride the Currituck Sound Ferry!

Only about four minutes from King James Colony in the other direction is the North Landing Bridge, which crosses over the nearly 3000 mile Intra Coastal Waterway. Although the Intra Coastal Waterway was originally built for commercial reasons, the waterway now is booming with recreational activity as well. In the fall months, you can go to marina and watch the millionaires in their yachts traveling south for the winter. -Or if you have a boat or jet-ski, you can put your craft in the water for a small fee nearby the bridge.

    King James Colony is such a great community. The large lots are fantastic for horses, kids, or what have you. I just love the community! And some people may think it is located “far out” but it isn’t. It only takes a minute to be near the stores and stuff.
