Sailing is synonymous with Oriental and for good reason. Protected harbors, steady prevailing winds and wide open waters come together to create a sailors paradise. Include a tight knit and active community of boat people and you’ll need no further reasons to make Oriental your sail boats home or just another port of call. There are plenty of motor boats in the area too, taking advantage of uncrowded waters and abundant fishing. Local outfitters will help you find a boating adventure that is just right for you.
