This Marina is very friendly - the staff working the store were very pleasant to deal with. You can call ahead and talk to real people! Pros: Within easy walking distance to town, clean facilities and store is well stocked (Wine plus Craft beer cave!). Cons: Can be a bit wavy depending upon wind as not deeply sheltered. Lessened with fenders and spring lines. Dockhand assist hours are limited, just like most others, so call ahead.

Nice quiet marina. If you want a pump out at your slip ( as advertised) make sure you get assigned a slip where the pump out station is. Wave action through the C dock entrance gets rocky when wind is against the current. If it’s going to be windy ask for a deeper slip. Nice they have a slip map online so you know where to go in advance. Call the phone number, radio seems to not be monitored.

Love New Bern and this marina allows easy access to town. Very convenient access just off Neuse River and fair price on month stay.

Just left Nov 2021 and stayed longer then we expected but have to say only good things about the Marina. Mark the owner always did his best to accommodate us and other boaters. Paula at the Galley store makes the Best sandwiches we loved the Blatt! The Beer cave is amazing and wine selection is impressive along with other gourmet treats. Walmart is not walking distance but drivable and someone at the marina always has a car it seems like to lend. The town is adorable and walking distance which was maybe the best part of our stay, enjoying the town.

I like this marina. Small but my favorite by far in New Bern. Nice staff, fair price and a superb location. This was my 5th stay here and I will be back. Thanks Dockwa for making the reservation so easy.

Mark, the owner, is a very nice man, however, his marina is very tired. Many of the planks on the floating docks are curling up at the edges and are dangerous. We found many of the planks on our finger pier to be soft and soggy to the point that I feared falling in. The WiFi is worthless. Mark has great pump out at the docks and the location can’t be beat.

Great location, excellent assistance from Stan docking & pump out. The Galley Store is a pleasant surprise-quite upscale with fine wine selection, truffles, & a few basic supplies - definitely not your typical BP gas station! The staff were kind & very helpful. They are quite short staffed, & it (& perhaps the residual financial hardships from the hurricane) is reflected in some overdue maintenance items-several soft dock boards, “soft” 50 A breaker, (the other breaker on our post was fine) & an abundance of duck poop on the finger docks. Overall the docks are sound and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here in future.

Nice place to stay with a couple minor hiccups. Friendly staff and a dockmaster (the Santa Claus looking guy) who was very helpful docking our sailboat in windy conditions. Facilities are modern and pretty clean. Well stocked ship's store. The problem was that the fuel dock and pumpout station were not available even though their advertising said they were there. We went to another nearby marina for those services.

Easy in/out. Great location within 2 blocks of downtown. Marina store offers many locally sourced products and the staff are very helpful. Breakfast sandwiches are exceptionally good! New Bern is a great destination well worth the short run up the river after exiting Adams Creek.

This is a great marina in a great location with good, friendly service. Have stayed here before, sorry to take one star off from my original review as the marina's courtesy truck bit the dust and is no longer available. The truck was a real perk...I hope they replace it.

Nice staff. Close to downtown.

Nobody answering at the VHF, poor docks. Pump out not working and waves coming directly inside the Marina...

Great staff and reasonable rates.

Made several attempts to hail the marina on VHF 16. No response. Made several cell phone calls. No answer. We tied up in an open space. Went to the store to check in. We had to move the boat. Day two on departure store was closed for a festival. Needed ice. Manager would not open store so we could get ice for departure.

We love staying here when we visit New Bern. The store has a great selection of craft beers, wine and goodies! Great town to walk around and shop and eat! Friendly helpful staff

Staff was super helpful

Overall, the stay was nice. The location is convenient to the small downtown area of New Bern, NC and the docks were well-kept. The adjoining store was nice and had basic boating supplies and groceries. The only significant problems were the scum on top of the water in the dock area, that mildly stained my fiberglass boat hull, at the waterline, and the fact that the water heater in the showers was not working. No one at the facility knew how to fix it so we took cold showers on a cool evening. Not fun. The next day, the owner didn't seem concerned and laughed-off my respectful and calm comments, and he didn't offer any kind of refund or discount on the dock fee. We'll probably return but we will check the showers for sure, before paying for the dock space.

Perfect location for exploring downtown New Bern. Store has an amazing selection of gourmet food items! Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
