Ocracoke Inlet

Although all other Outer Banks inlets have come and gone within recorded history, Ocracoke Inlet has remained continuously open. In maps drawn in 1584-1587 by John White, English explorer, he identified the inlet as Wokokon. The Raleigh expedition anchored at Wokokon at the end of June, 1585, on their way to Roanoke Island.
