Very nice place to stay. Staying an extra day.
We stayed in the mooring field which is directly off the beach in the downtown section of town. We only traveled to the Municipal Municipal Marine once to pickup guests. The dingy ride was a very long wet ride (approximately one mile?) We saw no reason to make this trip again even though the bay calmed down during our stay. The staff was very helpful during our short visit. The city dock near the casino has a small dingy dock which we used for the balance of our stay. Lots of restaurants and shops in this area. We would visit again but may opt to anchor just outside of the mooring field as many local visitors did while we were here. The only drawback to using the dingy dock is that it is limited to four hour in a 24 hour period. However I don’t think they enforce this. However, I wouldn’t leave it there overnight. The dock is closed from 3:00am to 7:00am. That would be very easy to enforce. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would return again.
Dock master met and helped us dock our boat. Gave us the rundown on services and a 10% discount for their onsite restaurant. We did not eat there but it looked like the house was full.
We have stayed here in several occasions. Nice restaurant and a good marine store available onsite.
Although they were closed for the holiday, the Michele the Dockmaster called me and advised me that I could stay on the gas dock. She would send out an attendant if we needed any help. We did not. Again having stayed here on several occasions we knew the dock. They get a five star for having a staff member call us. Would have been nice to hear from someone at the previous night stay in Beaufort moorings.
Just an overnight on a mooring ball. They were closed for the holiday so little information was available. But, because I have stayed there several times before I knew which moorings were available for a boat my size.
