Great stop-over mooring with close access to Carolina Beach activities. As others have experienced, we were the only boat in the mooring field. Very easy to book and pay now with DockWa. City marina and docks (including dinghy dock) at south end of basin on the edge of the commercial district are being re-built and should be done in the very near future but were not available at this time. There is a public kayak launch/small dinghy dock on the east side of the basin at the south end of the mooring field with some public trash receptacles and a 15-20 minute walk to the commercial district. Public restrooms at the city marina dock site. Ida Thai just behind the city marina dock site is AWESOME !! Carolina Beach has a very nice beach and boardwalk area. Mooring field is a great place to watch fireworks when the city is having them (launched from the beach area).
