Minutes away from Brunswick Plantation and Golf Resort, the Historic Calabash Waterfront on the Intracoastal Waterway  offers deep sea fishing and Maritime Adventures on the Atlantic Ocean…a Scenic cruise minutes upstream!

Calabash Town sealThe charming coastal community of Calabash began as a small fishing village known as “Pea Landing”. As it grew, it was named Calabash after the gourd that grew in the region, as the Calabash River was thought to be a gourd -like shape. Calabash… “The Seafood Capital of the World” got it’s name from the Calabash Style Seafood created there by celebrated southern cooks! Perfectly fried shrimp and hush puppies with honey butter is a Calabash delight! There are now 30 seafood restaurants in a one mile radius of Calabash to keep up with the demand!
