For an Island with one traffic light, there is quite a bit of fun to be had on Topsail. In addition to a myriad of water related activities, such as fishing and surfing, Topsail also has a number of great restaurants, galleries and even a museum.


Belle of Topsail
The Belle is a great party boat, ready for your next event with an open-air top deck and a large bar. During the summer season, there are four Pirate Cruises daily, with the final cruise of the day setup as a dinner cruise. Kids and adults of all ages can join in the fun as the 48′ Raven chases the Belle down the Intracoastal Waterway. The Raven pirate ship is outfitted with 12 cannons, large square masts, a crow’s nest, and most importantly, energetic pirate re-enactors.

Missiles and More Museum
Opened in 1995, the Museum was the dream of the late Betty Polzer. Her goal was to promote the history of Topsail Island. Thanks to her persistence, the museum was established in the Assembly Builiding located in Topsail Beach. The building, constructed in 1946, was used by the government to assemble missiles for secret operations that were carried out on Topsail.

Museum Hours:
The first week of April through Mid May, Monday through Friday, 2 to 5PM. Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day weekend, Monday through Saturday, 2 to 5PM. After Labor Day weekend through mid October, Monday through Friday, 2 to 5 p.m. The Museum welcomes special arrangements for schools, church groups and organizations to tour the Museum.
