About


Ensign Harbor Marina is a quaint and protected marina with 29 slips located just a few miles from the heart of NC’s sailing capital, Oriental NC. Ensign Harbor is a state of mind getaway. It is a place to reset from harried life...to enjoy the breeze [with a glass of wine or a beer]...or to cast your line. The area offers world class fishing for trout and drum. rina offers ten acres of natural landscape for you to enjoy and explore...no concrete...no traffic...just serenity.
YET, anything you might need is just a few miles away!

Located on Brown’s Creek in the tiny coastal village of Whortonsville, NC, the marina is just a short jog off of the Intracoastal Waterway as it passes through the lower Neuse River. We have 29 slips with 30 Amp power, water, clean and well appointed bathhouse with showers, clubhouse and WiFi service. The controlling depth at the marina is 5.5 feet and we have slips that can accommodate catamarans. We welcome sailboats and motor vessels for long and short term slip rentals. Please visit us soon!

We recently had the ABSOLUTE pleasure of waiting out a storm at the Ensign Harbor Marina and spending time with new owners, Lourdes and Todd Best. They were incredible hosts!!! If you are a transient sailor, we highly recommend you check this place out as you make your way along the ICW. You will feel welcomed and well cared for during your stay. It’s a beautiful place and quite safe to wait out a storm. The marina is part of their ten acres that will one day soon include horses. We are three months into a year living on our boat. We’ve stayed at a number of marinas and met countless people. You never know what you’ll experience when pulling into a new place. Well, Ensign Harbor Marina and owners, Lourdes and Todd Best, are certainly at the top of our list. Gems for sure!
