    No pets, did not go ashore. We went 1 mile or so up and local waterman are considerate as you can easily move through crab pots. Left a big open area 8 ft deep, great holding, and had it all to ourselves. Anchored at 35-33.58.5 N 076-28.56.7W. Area is called Upper Pungo anchorage turn NW FROM R24.

    Good protection from all directions except the south which can be had by moving farther up the creek. This spot offers easy shore access for your pet on a sandy beach. Verizon has LTE service at 3 Mbps.

    Drop your anchor in 10 ft of water, it won’t move.

    The anchorage is never crowded and is protected from all directions except the south (if you need southerly protection, you can move farther up the creek by the anchorage area).

    There is a sandy beach for pet relief. The sunsets are beautiful. Verizon has LTE service at 3 Mbps. Just drop your anchor in 10 ft of water.

    We use this anchorage everytime we go south. It's protected and has a sandy beach for shore access for our dog. Anchor in 10 ft of water.
