About


Manteo Waterfront Marina is owned and operated by the town of Manteo and features a walk to everything location in the heart of the Manteo historic district with stores and multiple restaurants easily walkable. Slips feature water, electric, cable TV and WiFi.

The Manteo Waterfront Marina is located in a tranquil setting less than a mile from the Roanoke Sound. It is a small, deep, and well-protected harbor, and can accommodate vessels up to 150 feet in length. The marina has only 53 slips available, making it perfect for that extra personal service. There are approximately 20 transient slips and 33 slips dedicated to seasonal and annual boaters. Rates are based on length-of-stay and size of boat. Pump out service is available at the marina and fuel is available nearby. Casual dining, shopping, and supplies are all within walking distance of the marina.

All slips feature 30 and 50 amp power, cable television, and free WiFi. The air conditioned comfort station located at the marina features separate men's and women's restrooms, clean showers, and coin operated washer and dryer. Boaters come to Manteo for its coastal charm and relaxed atmosphere. For information on what's happening in Manteo visit: www.discovermanteo.com

The Town of Manteo also provides free overnight tie-up with no services on a "space available" basis; or you may anchor in good holding between the Waterfront Gazebo and Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse and take your dinghy to the dock. Anchoring in Shallowbag Bay, Doughs Creek, and Scarboro Creek is restricted to 10 days in any 30 day period.

Approach


Take 90 degree right at marker #10 and proceed to the marina leaving the brown topped gazebo to port.Note: Pay attention when you turn in from the Roanoke Channel into the Shallowbag Bay Channel. There is significant shoaling at G29 in the Roanoke Channel to R4 as you turn in to the Shallowbag Bay channel. There is plenty of deep water but you need to go all the way to R30A before you make the turn into Shallowbag. Then stay close to G3 and G5 and far away from R4. The rest of the channel down to R10 is fine but stay 10-15 yards off the red side to have the deepest water. This is as of April 2017.The depths in the channel will support 7' draft once the shoal is avoided. YOUTUBE on the water approach video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNIMU1Uspqg

This used to be a great marina. It still is for facilities but not for the services provided. Since Carl retired they have part time dockmasters who have other duties in municipal government. We arrived on 4 SEP for the Labor Day weekend. No response on channel 16 and voice mail hell on the phone. We had to find our slip ourselves and had to handle the lines as well. In addition we came with 3 other boats and they squeezed two of us into slips that were entirely too narrow. I have a 13'6" beam and we were in a 14' slip. by the time we put the fenders out we were jammed together as if we were rafted on the sandbar. This is nothing more than a municipal government failure.

Manteo is always a great boating destination. Easy stroll from your boat to unique local shops and restaurants overlooking the harbor; history; music; ice cream! Dockmaster Carl retired in June, 2020, so the town has assigned his many jobs as additional duty to employees of the waterfront Maritime Museum. Response to radio calls on 16 may be tardy. Reservations by dockwa only. Shortsighted and uninformed political leadership of the Town of Manteo is responsible, not the museum folks - they've got great skills and attitude and will help when they can.

Marina is within walking distance to everything! Marina wifi was excellent and bathrooms were very clean. No cleats on the dock just pilings so we weren't prepared well for that.

Hi there! We LOVED our stay! The only reason I give 4 stars is that we could not get a hold of the marina as easily as most from the water or when we got there. Calls went straight to VM and Marina did not answer channel 16. We didn't know if we were in the right place until after we docked. But, once we got there, a gentleman (don't remember name) came out and helped us with a few questions. So that's good:)

The marina is clean & well kept. It’s just a few steps down the dock to town filled with restaurants, cafes, clothier’s, kayak/boat rentals, ice cream & novelty shops and more. Grocery & hardware stores are close by too. Make sure to visit the Roanoke Island Festival Park, easy walk over the bridge from the marina and more cool things to do there. If you like to walk or run they’ve a scenic path around the park perimeter to enjoy. There’s a museum & replica of an old sailing ship that’s a treat to see & visit. The marina prices are reasonable and overall a great stop not to be missed on the ICW.

Pleasant stay at Manteo waterfront Marina. Everything within walking distance. Clean accommodation. Will definitely stay again on our trip south in the fall.

this marina is a pleasant getaway for a weekend, the amenites ample. Docking is easy fixed docks, location is great for people watching, walking to eateries, and shopping. The nearest grocery store is about 1/2 mile from marina, but a pleasant walk thru the quiant streets of Manteo. It's a bustling area in the summertime, otherwise rather quiet in the off season. Reaching this marina can be a bit tricky thru Shallowbag bay as you'll need to nearly hug the markers as shoaling has caused shallow entry into the area. check your maps/charts and go slow.
