No problem whatsoever. Just stay in the channel and watch where the markers switch sides! You have at least 7 feet at a minimum. The channel into Manteo is also a minimum 7 feet (pay NO attention to the chart 5 ft. notation!! An 8 ft. draft
boat goes in and out all the time and I've one it on mine with 6'!) BUT...right at the turn in from the Roanoke Sound channel there is a hump at marker 29C a small green can. Start your turn at marker 30 instead and stay on the GREEN side (to your port) of the Shallowbag bay channel into Manteo until you pass marker #5. It is 54 miles from Ocracoke
to Manteo...so get an early start!
Shallowbag Bay Marina is closed and there is no fuel
there so if you need fuel
you need to stop at Priates Cove Marina just after the 65' bridge and to your port. Manteo Waterfront and Town Marina remains open and has a pump out station.
