Welcome to Coconut Jack’s!!


Shark Tooth Island is our specialty! We have 20+ years experience going to this Island and are knowledgeable of all the nuances of this unusual place. Shark Tooth is a dredge spoil Island in the Cape Fear…formed when the channel was deepened to accommodate larger ships. material on the Island, dug from deep in the bottom of the Cape Fear dates to the Eocene Era, 40 million years ago! Yes, you can find awesome Shark’s Teeth on the Island but keep a special eye out for the fossils! My favorites are the little Sea Biscuits (shown here)

Sea biscuits and Teeth

Tours to Shark’s Tooth are 2 hours in duration. A quick 15 minute paddle over and back leaves plenty of time to fossil hunt. Fees are 50 per person which includes boat, paddle, Life jacket and guide. A credit card number will be needed to hold the reservation, but you may pay cash at the time of the trip if easier for you. Trips are tide dependent and go out once a day one hour before that day’s low tide. Call 910-260-4860 to reserve your trip now!

Please note: Tours limited to 6 people. Coconut Jack’s reserves the right to cancel tours due to inclement/unsafe weather.

BLACK RIVER (Note: Due to low water levels we are not currently running Black river tours, hopefully this will change soon!}

The beautiful Black River is located about an hour Northwest of Wilmington NC and feels a world apart. Kayak downstream for 4 hours with stops along the way for swimming and picnicking. Spot abundant bird life and other wildlife in this mostly unspoiled environment. This is a day trip that will take approximately 6-7 hours. More info on this trip coming soon!
