    We were based here for 5 years and LOVED it! Multiple high quality restaurants nearby, 2 grocery stores within walking distance, lots of great shops and a movie theater just across the street. This town also does lots of special events (First Friday, Dare Days, Parades, Etc) so keep an eye on the Town's website.

    We just loved this location! The marina - has fixed docks; staff is present off-season on the weekends - full time in the peak season; if you wish to pump out off-season you'll need to do it when staff are there. No issue at all with the docks being fixed as there is no tide. Did not use the amenities as we had no need to. The marina is right in the town of Manteo on Roanoke Island and is charming! We really loved it! The town is great for shops and restaurants; a waterfront dock over a mile long; lovely parks; movie theater, etc. The island has lots to offer from reprovisioning, cycling paths, walking, the Island Farm is a must visit along with the Lost Colony National Historic Site. Two thumbs up for sure!

    We hoped to spend a few days in Manteo, but ended up spending only one night as we needed to head south for schedule reasons. Weather and bridge closure robbed us of spending more time here. The marina staff were awesome! The WiFi is the best I’ve ever seen on my boat 55MB!! Shopping is close by (easy walking distance) including groceries. The docks were new and sturdy.

    The only negatives are there is no security -anyone can walk the docks (and they do!) and these are fixed, not floating, docks. Oh, if you have a catamaran, they can accommodate you!

    We will return!

    Very nice marina. Thanks George for your assistance and local advice. Marina is extremely convenient to Manteo town attractions/businesses. Laundry/shower facilities are excellent--clean and air conditioned. Just a side note about the town--there are no full-service breakfast restaurants closer than one mile.

    The stay was shorter than we had hoped due to the place being very popular on weekends and holidays. The town is neat and tourist oriented with pleasure boat trips running from the marina. Some wake / ground swell was working its way in during our stay. Would go again for sure

    We stayed at the free dock, which was more than adequate. The dockmaster gave helpful directions over the radio and assisted with tie-up. Wifi worked at the docks as well as the office. We visited post Hurricane Matthew and the channel navigation is unchanged. Great town to walk around; restaurants, Piggly Wiggly and hardware store with propane fills within an easy walk.
