We were very happy with our stay with the exception of the wifi and weekend staffing. The marina was well kept, bathrooms and showers were clean and a nice park area to walk dogs or kids to play. My complaint was that there was no weekend staff to greet us or assist with docking. Additionally, the wifi reception was only strong on the porch of the office marking working from the boat impossible. We would recommend this marina to friends and will certainly return ourselves.
Grounded out at low tide drawing 3.5 feet Suggest bow in only
Very friendly and helpful staff!
A great facility at a reasonable price, inclusive of power, wifi, showers. Close enough to shops and restaurants. Lee was great at short notice with storm coming, he met us at docks to help with lines. Thanks Lee.
Docks in great shape, floating, all facilities very clean. Staff is super helpful. Great protection from the last N/NE Gale. Next to a small park that is constantly being cared for.
This was a great stay close to restaurants and stores to reprovision and the dockmaster Lee was very helpful, definitely would stay again
Dockmaster Lee was great on the phone, and very welcoming and helpful when we arrived. We’ll be back!
Strong current parallel to dock. Very shallow on shore end of docks (<3ft). Nice park by docks. Limited amperage on power pedestal breakers for heavy usage boats. Dockmaster very helpful.
Great location. Harbormaster is professional and very courteous offering assistance at every step of arrival and departure. Current can be challenging. Recommend arriving and departing near slack water. Many great restaurants in walking distance.
Very friendly people. The installations OK.
Excellent service by the dock master and staff on a very busy (and windy) afternoon.
Really nice people and very helpful and we loved the acess to shops and restaurants. Easy access to docking slip We really enjoyed our stay. We recommend it highly
Very nice facility. Really enjoyed the live band at Alive at Five. The Dockmaster Lee is super friendly and always makes sure our stay is perfect.
First class! Dockmaster is completely on top of things. Great service. Nice to be remembered as a repeat customer and welcomed like a friend.
Dock Master was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived and docked for the evening. The facilities were very clean and modern. The location is within walking distance to many restaurants and great shops. We will definitely dock here again. Thank you for hosting us.
Great place to stop and rest. Easy to get in and out. Slips are in great condition with good depth (we draft 8 feet, no problem) facilities are clean and many places to eat. The nicest people, the place has a safe friendly atmosphere.
Everything was great: location, staff, facilities. Ace Marine hardware within walking distance and several good restaurants nearby. Would stay here again.
Dockmaster Lee is outstanding, very welcoming and runs a great facility. The docks are in great shape.
Great stay! Nice docks and beautiful evening views.
Current can be a bit tricky. Time your arrival around slack tides.
Very nice friendly dock master, bathroom and showers nice and close to dock, the shower curtain in men’s room needs to be replaced. Close to restaurants and marine store which was nice as well. Boat was rocking a lot with the wind pointing right at it but that was just the weather.
The slips are excellent with wide finger piers and floating docks. The negative is the position of the slips is such that the prevailing SW winds and open water results in a rocky night onboard.
Facilities were nice. Docks were clean and neat. Lee the dockmaster checked on us a couple of times and was very pleasant.
Very difficult place to dock with 2knot current running perpendicular to the floating docks. Wait for slack water, and possibly local volunteers will help with lines. Power boxes were damaged, with only 1 screw holding in the 30 & 50 amp sockets. The 30 amp breaker kept tripping at 22 amps, so we used one side of our 50 amp splitter to get the full 30. Close to expensive and noisy restaurants (on a Tuesday).
Very nice!! Clean restrooms, hot showers, enjoyed our stay!
Highly recommend! Great location and docks.
Morehead City Transient Docks was very good to us. We stayed there well over a month as live-aboards on our way south. The dock master, Lee, was very kind and helpful. The location was great as it was a short walk from many restaurants and several parks. The bathrooms were convenient and clean. We enjoyed our time at the marina and the area.
Great Docks! We stayed right across the road and the convenience was wonderful. Lee Everett, the dock-master, was very helpful and made our stay simple!
Dock easily accessible and very clean. Didn't use facilities. Hope to use again.
Floating docks are in good shape and pricing is good. Dockmaster Lee is friendly and accomodating, but is not very experienced. We have a cat, and as such we were put on the E end face dock.This dock is very shallow at low tide near the seawall, so we should have gone bow in toward the wall, but he told us incorrectly it did not matter, leading to our rudders sitting on the bottom at low tide. Fortunately they have a skeg to protect them. We would be fine bow in as low water depth was 7'+ at other end of dock. Location is excellent for access to restaurants and Morehead City waterfront attractions. Power, water and Wifi access is good and restrooms/showers are not far away as there are only 10 slips. No laundry facilities or ice at office. The park onshore has Sat evening concerts (ending at 8:30pm) in the summertime - easy to watch from on board. Marked down from 5 stars due to lack of full facilities and lack of knowledge of dockmaster putting us on the bottom.
