Hatteras Village, where the Hatteras Marlin Motel is located, is the southernmost village on Hatteras Island. This village is probably best-known for its world-famous offshore fishing fleet. There are several Hatteras Village marinas, including Hatteras Landing, Teach's Lair Marina, Hatteras Harbor Marina and Oden's Dock, where headboats and charter boats are available to take visitors fishing in the sound, inlet, or even the beautiful blue waters of the Gulf Stream. Each afternoon, crowds gather at the marina docks to watch the boats and tired but happy fishermen unload their catch of the day. It really is a sight to see! Scuba diving charters for exploring the many shipwrecks off our coast are also available, as well as parasailing, kite boarding, and dolphin viewing tours.
