"What is better
than an unexpected treasure?"
The Chicamacomico Life-Saving Station
Historic Site & Museum in Rodanthe, the northernmost village on
Hatteras Island, could be the most overlooked attraction on the
Outer Banks. For years I have driven past, Now that I have
visited...I can't wait to return."

Island Breeze, Hatteras, NC
With its two stations and five
outbuildings, Chicamacomico (pronounced chik a ma COM i co) is the most complete site of remaining
life-saving stations in North Carolina and one of the nation’s
most complete sites. This site is located on Hatteras Island in
the village of Rodanthe on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Our purpose is
to restore, preserve, protect, educate and interpret the rich
history of these valiant men and their dedication to the U.S.
Life-Saving Service, as well as interpreting the history of the
buildings and artifacts. We are open to the public from
mid-April through November, and provide our visitors with tours,
programs, reenactments and special events.
