There are only two ways to see and appreciate the natural beauty of the expansive Roanoke River Delta- by water or by air. At the NC Black Bear Festival it will be possible to get a "God's Eye View" of this natural wonder. There are over 50 miles of shore line within 5 miles of Plymouth! This is the lower part of the largest intact hardwood bottomland east of the Mississippi River. For $35 you will experience a breath taking helicopter ride over Historic Downtown Plymouth, the Roanoke River Delta and see where it flows into the Albemarle Sound.Don't miss this amazing opportunity.
