The Ferryman of the Outer Banks

Record #:
Rudy Austin and his family are Ocracoke Island natives who have made it possible for people to visit Portsmouth Island via boat for 40 years. Austin’s father once worked on the now uninhabited island and started taking visitors to the island when the National Park Service took over its management in the 1970s. The Austin’s are the only ferry service and as they age, many wonder what will happen to Portsmouth Island.
