Since 1984, the historical charm of Southport, North Carolina and surrounding islands has been a picturesque location for film-making. This week the State Port Pilot reported the movie makers for ‘Safe Haven’ a novel by Nicholas Sparks set in Southport are lining up locations for film production, with confirmation expected any day.
According to the Pilot producers were spotted this week around the Yacht Basin, Senator Rabon’s home, Old American Fish Company bar, and Fishy Fishy Cafe. Preproduction crews for the movie have set up offices in town and are scouting storefronts, homes and other coastal locations.
Did you know Seawatch at Sunset Harbor is located 11 miles from Senator Rabon’s home, Fishy Fishy cafe, and the Yacht Basin? As a matter of fact, one of our favorite spots to visit and entertain is the cafe and we just love ‘Safe Haven’ filmmakers are interested in this beautiful setting for their movie.

Southeastern North Carolina continues to be a popular vacation, retirement, 2nd home and relocation area, and as a point of illustration, today we borrow some recent news from a local attraction. The USS North Carolina Battleship, which sits about 30 minutes north of Seawatch, announced their attendance numbers were the best they have seen in 18 years. From their press release:
“We are honored by the number of people who continue to visit and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Battleship coming to Wilmington and assuming duties as the State of North Carolina’s Memorial to those who served during WWII,” states Captain Terry Bragg, Executive Director of the Battleship North Carolina. “As the growth trend continues, it is special to all that so many still care about the crew and the history of this magnificent vessel.
Brunswick County (Seawatch at Sunset Harbor) and New Hanover County (Wilmington) are separated by the Cape Fear River, the home of our beloved battleship. After many years of service, most notably during World War II, the USS North Carolina was moored along the river in 1961. In 1962 the ship was dedicated as the State’s memorial to its World War II veterans and the 10,000 North Carolinians who died during the war.
We here at Seawatch are very proud of all service members that served on the USS North Carolina, and are thankful to all who serve in our armed forces.
