Beaufort, NC Marinas and Inlet

Hello Sailors,

Devante's Dream is planning a layover of a few days in Beaufort NC around June 1st, 2010. She's a 39' sloop.

I'd like to get Marina recommendations for ease of provisioning, laundry, etc..

Also, I know that the inlet at Beaufort is subject to shoaling. Anything we should specifically watch out for?

TYIA,

Eric

S/V Devante's Dream

The town marina is nice but the current can be very swift making docking ann experience. The inlet should be no problem.

WELCOME..
we live in morehead, just over the bridge...

town creek marina is in beaufort and caters to transients. I am friends with the owner. he is a great guy... super nice....

portside marina in morehad is just beside the port, and also caters to transients. town creek has an onsite restaurant, portside does not, but portside is just beside the morehead waterfront which has some good restaurants and bars.
just done on the other side of the morehead waterfront the city has just finished some transient docks with new bath house, etc..

town creek may have laundry facilities but the others do not...

we keep our boat moored just out in between portside and the town docks...

mabey we will see you guys

if you visit town creek, tell the owner steve that the more handsome, better shrimp pita making steve said hey.....LOL

as or shoaling, not a worry there.. plenty of water available to all these..
if you are coming from the south and traveling up the icw enter the morehead waterfront ( if you choose there) from the east side next to the port if it is low tide... the west entrance can get as shallow as 4-5 feet... every where ellse is 15-30 feet

Enjoy Beaufort. IF you like Tapas, check out Aqua resturant, just behind the main drag. If you need any boat work done there, let me know, we are good friends with a master carpenter (does amazing things with wood), and he knows everyone in town and will steer you in the right direction (ex cruiser).

I wouldn't be concerned about shoaling in the Beaufort inlet. It's a class A inlet - very large ship come through it. We just passed into it a couple of weeks ago and never saw anything near worry depths - we draw 6'. I seem to remember 40+ feet of depth.

Morehead City Yacht Basin marina doesn't have the current problems and is more private.
The inlet is excellant, you should also make an effort to stop at Lookout Bight.

Are Portside and Morehead City Yacht Basin the same marina? They appear to be in the same basin?

It looks like Portside is on the Southside and Morehead City Yacht Basin on the North. Both are listed in Boat US.
