Excellent facilities. Free laundry (with new machines), shower and bathroom facilities are first rate. Definitely worth a stop.

Beautiful new marina where there were shrimp docks, 2 new floating transient docks along with several docks worth of boat lifts. A new clubhouse with 3 immaculate shower/toilet rooms, as well as complimentary great laundry. The boaters lounge held a small kitchen and comfortable couches to enjoy the big TV, a nice respite in cold weather. Excellent dockmaster took good care of us, and really appreciated use of the courtesy van and plenty of shopping available in Moorehead City. The marina was nicely situated in the quiet part of Beaufort, but quick walk to downtown historic district and restaurants.

Nicest marina I've *ever* been to/in. Staff was very helpful and nice, couldn't recommend them more.

Homer smith docks was wonderful! It had so many convenient amenities, especially the free laundry, really nice newly renovated bathrooms/showers and club house and the car you could borrow at any time! The dock-master Dan was super helpful throughout our entire stay and a wealth of information. We were held up arriving by a night due to weather and he kindly allowed us to tack on a night on the end of our stay to make up for it. It was the perfect stop to regroup and explore on our first ICW trip south and we hope to stop here again on our return!

Incredibly amazing! Dock master Dan went above and beyond to make our arrival on and our departure off the dock so much less stressful! Thank you Dan! The washroom, shower and free laundry facilities were very clean and much appreciated as was the courtesy vehicle when it came time for parts and provisioning. Job well done Homer Smith Marina! Keep up the great work! We'll be back!😊

Very nice laundry and bathrooms and courtesy car. Tide was ripping when we docked which was a challenge. Thank you Dan for your kindness and support!

Very helpful staff, Dan was greeting helping us in to dock and very friendly. Love the marina, use of laundry facilities and the loaner car was an added bonus to allow us to reprovision before leaving dock.

Wonderful facility. Wonderful location. Wonderful staff! What could be better!

by Keith P. - Verified user on Oct 28, 2023
Top Rate! Evens before we arrived the excellent service started. The harbor master called early in the day to confirm our ETA and then met us at the dock when we arrived. The facility is one of the best we have seen on our travels including laundry, showers and courtesy car. Added bonus is close proximity to downtown Beaufort and it’s parks, walkways and restaurants.

About Homer Smith Docks and Marina

Homer Smith’s is the go-to Carteret County marina for guests and locals, alike. Located on Beaufort’s Towne Creek, we feature 30 slips, accommodating vessels up to 100 feet. More slips are to come, as we continually grow our facilities.

Our state-of-the-art marina caters to recreational boaters, sailors, fishing trollers, area residents and seasonal visitors. Our boat slip rental leasing options allow for brief visitors and those looking for a long-term stay. We’re proud to be serving everyone looking to be in Beaufort, Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, or just anywhere on Crystal Coast.

The docks that make up Homer Smith are constructued of a BMT ML-32 floating dock system built by Bellingham Marine, the largest dock manufacturer in the U.S. Our decking is made of Brazilian hardwood, also known as IPE. The main walkways are 10 foot wide, making them more stable than others in our area. Our docks are secured by 12-inch concrete piles and the finger piers will be 32-foot long with bumper piles at each end. The harbor lights are made with marina electrical equipment and supply all power needs for up to 100-foot motor yachts.
