The Coastal Railway Swing Bridge is typically closed from about 9:30 am to 11:30 am during weekdays, but will open on demand. Contact the bridge attendant on VHF channel 16 to request an opening. Call the Dock Attendant on VHF 16 or by phone at 252-944-6661 when you get near the trestle and he will give you wind and current conditions and meet you on the dock to get you settled in.

Lovely town with historical buildings and a beautiful riverside walkway. Fixed docks with helpful and super friendly dock hands. Tide of 6”, loaner bikes to get to Food Lion . Restaurants etc. located right off the docks. Great place to wait out bad weather.

Helpful staff, clean restrooms, good location and inexpensive. Tight slip for larger boats, ask to be put on the docks T. We were on F dock and restroom/shower were far away. Traffic on the river and prevailing wind will make you rock at night. We would stay again if visiting.

We arrived hours earlier than expected and had just approached the free docks. The dockmaster recognized the name of our boat and placed us in our slip ahead of the specified check in time. He was very cordial and helped secure our sailboat. They even hauled our garbage away for us! The docks are well maintained and the bathrooms and showers are clean and well supplied. Downtown is just a block away for those who like to shop and dine. We checked out a day early as Tropical Storm Ophelia was headed toward our home. As we left before the office opened, I left a note in the drop box and we were only charged for the one night. I would highly recommend the Washington Waterfront Docks to any boater.

The fixed docks are in good repair with convenient power pedestals and water. The dock staff are all very helpful and attentive. Their facilities are very clean with two shower/heads. Very nice town with convenient dining and drinks at different price points depending on your choice. We will be visiting again.

Super stay. Very helpful dockmaster squeezed us onto a day dock so we could get water and power. $10 for 6ish hours. (They’re flexible). We’ll mostly anchor nearby as our boat is self sufficient, but come to dock on occasion for water top off instead of running the watermaker in turbid water. Beautiful town and worth the visit.

Washington is a great small town that really embraces the riverfront. Transient docking is along the long face dock at the foot of the park. We were there on a weekend and there was constant activity along the whole waterfront as well as downtown. Marina office and showers/restrooms are a bit of a walk from K dock but we are self contained and rarely use marina facilities.

The docks are great. Dockmasters are very helpful. You can walk to many restaurants and shops. Can’t beat the price.

A perfect place to spend a weekend! Docks were in great shape and staff came right down to meet us and help with lines. Bathrooms were clean and serviceable. So much to do (and eat!!!) within a short walk. It was an easy ride for our friends from Raleigh to come visit. Would definitely stay here again.

Washington, or Little Washington as we say in North Carolina, is a lovely town with some great restaurants. The marina is a nice facility in the heart of town. If they had floating docks I would give it five stars. The dockmaster is a great representative for the town!
