  • For quite some time since I went to The Outerbanks, I made a short visit to the station because I have a friend who used to work there, all the person is quite friendly! They even gave me a ride on one of the trucks by the city! haha. Unfortunately I lost the majority of photos of this day along with my old cell phone. But well, I liked the place and if you are in the area definitely recommend visiting it. Can't wait for my next visit to this palce!

  • Incredible heroes! These were men in a small boat fighting the sea at its worst or the flames of a burning wreck using rudimentary equipment that was ingenious in its simplicity. All of them were risking everything for strangers passing by their island home. Chicamacomico Station is an informative visit to the predecessor of our current day Coast Guard.
  • Great place to explore the history of US coast guard service. Friendly staff and home to some wonderful artifacts. An original picture of Wright brothers first flight and a copy of the Telegraph message sent by them announcing their successful flight were amazing to see!
  • Very nice staff. Great exhibits. Last ticket for self guided tour sold at 4pm to give you an hour to view the site and exhibits.
  • Fantastic tour!!! The ladies were very kind, welcoming, and knowledgeable!!! 😁🚣⚓🌞🌊
  • Great for history buffs. I really enjoyed it.
