New no-wake zone in Sunset Beach goes in effect July 1

SUNSET BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A heads up for boaters as a new no-wake zone at Sunset Beach goes into effect Sunday.

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission announced that the no-wake zone extends along a 200-yard portion of the Intracoastal Waterway from west of the Sunset Beach boating access area to east of the Sunset Boulevard bridge.

The commission approved the no-wake zone to make the area around the busy boat ramp and bridge in the narrow, shallow portion of the Intracoastal Waterway safer.
