This is our story

Welcome to North Carolina’s Cape Fear Coast! We are Ocean Outfitters, Southeastern North Carolina’s premier retailer of sportswear, footwear, sunglasses, t-shirts and more.

Original owner Susan Davis first opened the doors to Ocean Outfitters in 1985 at the Southport Marina. Today, at its new location in downtown Southport, the store is owned by Patrick Jones and Susan’s son Brandon Vannoy and his wife Tracy, and has become a staple of the town of Southport.

We invite you to stop in take a look at what we have to offer; a variety of products from apparel to beach chairs, and everything in between. We are the area’s largest provider of Southport, Oak Island, Caswell Beach and Bald Head Island t-shirts, as well as a vast selection of apparel from the preeminent brands. Whether you are a local or just visiting our charming community, we look forward to the opportunity to serve you. See you soon!

Patrick, Brandon & Tracy
