About Us

Adventure Yacht Harbor

Capt. Charlie Roach and Sheryl Roach

Nestled in a protected harbor on the Halifax River, part of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.

This quiet, peaceful harbor has been welcoming boaters and guests from all parts of the east coast for over 50 years. Since World War II, boats came here to be safe from prevailing winds and wakes off the Intracoastal Waterway. Located in a tree-lined quiet residential neighborhood on the Halifax River called Wilbur-By-The-Sea, it is one of the few unincorporated areas of Volusia County boasting neither a condo or hotel but exclusively beachfront homes.

Fishing and boating are top activities in the area. Inshore fishing includes the world-famous Mosquito Lagoon, known for bass and trout fishing. The nearby Ponce de Leon Inlet is a natural opening in the barrier islands and access to world-class offshore fishing along with the historical reputation as one of the most treacherous inlets in the southeast since 1565 when the entire French fleet of Admiral Jean Ribault was wrecked by a hurricane here.

Capt. Charlie Roach and Sheryl Roach purchased Adventure Yacht Harbor in 2010, and have continually made improvements to the facility, its services and the community. They also own and operate Boondocks Restaurant, the on-site casual waterfront dining that has been a favorite spot for many locals and visitors through the years. “It’s great food at a good price,” says Sheryl. “The fishermen love the “Cook Your Catch” special too!  After a long day of fishing, who wants to cook?”
