The Oceanana was opened in 1959 by A.B. Cooper, Sr. and was marketed as "The Family Playground of the South." Generations continue to return year after year. The Cooper family still owns and operates the property to this day.
The Oceanana offers 3 oceanfront venues:
Unlike many other oceanfront venues on Bogue Island, Oceanana's beach is privately owned. Clients enjoy the ability to rope off and reserve any area of our wide, white sand beach for their events. Take advantage of on-site accommodations at the Oceanana Family Motel and delicious catering options from the Oceanana Pier House Restaurant. Use the Contact bar on the right to talk to Desirée about your dream beach wedding.

Talk with Desiree. She was so flexible and responsive to our needs, both in the planning months before the wedding and on the big day itself. As it turned out, the big day was the day Hurricane Matthew came ashore. The plans for a wedding on the beach with guests seated in chairs overlooking the sea and the dunes were blown away, but Desiree suggested both wedding and reception in their Pier House Restaurant. The newlyweds were married in front of the big picture window overlooking the beach and we were able to decorate the venue and set up music and buffet for the best wedding and reception you can imagine. We had the time of our lives. Unforgettable! No one could have been more attuned to our needs than Desiree, Sammy, and everyone at the Oceanana.Sent on 11/04/2016

The Oceanana Staff and especially Desiree was so wonderful to work with this wedding. In the months before the wedding she was so helpful with vendors names and phones numbers locally for the catering and also the event rentals. With us not being local it was a real help to us with her providing us with names and numbers to contact them. Desiree was always willing to answer questions and taking the extra time to help with reservations and anything that was needed. It was also nice to have her and her staff available the day of the event if anything was needed or any questions that may of come. We are really thankful for all the help that Desiree and the staff of the hotel gave to us and our families during this special time.Sent on 11/17/2014
