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).

Marina Response:
Robert, i apologize for the electrical issues you had and thank you for bringing it to my attention. We had that corrected yesterday. If you should stay with us again and need help tieing up, call me and will be glad to come help. As for the restaurants, again i apologize if they were not to your liking but i have no control over them. Hope you will consider staying with us again. Thank you for your time. Lee Everett, Dockmaster

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.

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.

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.

The only negative review I would have is that I came in one afternoon and another boat took my slip and moved my reserved sign off my slip.
