Welcome to the Frying Pan Tower live cam at Cape Fear, North Carolina. This ocean cam is affixed to the Frying Pan Tower, 34 miles off the coast of Cape Fear, North Carolina. The tower was built in the 1960s to warn ships of the shallow waters nearby. Though GPS navigation technology means this tower is no longer used for its original purpose, it’s an important ecosystem for marine wildlife and provides a beautiful view of the sun rising and setting over the Atlantic Ocean.
What is the Frying Pan Tower?
The Frying Pan Tower, a surplus Coast Guard Light Station, is located far out in the Atlantic Ocean 34 miles off the coast of North Carolina. The tower is being restored by volunteers through FPTower Inc. a 501(c)3 nonprofit for future generations. Our goal is to restore the facility for research, education and enhancing the public’s knowledge of our oceans. For more information please see www.fptower.org.
