The Homer Smith Marina docks are the best docks we’ve seen on our 3,000+ trip. The Marina raves about them on their website, deservedly so. Free laundry, 2 loaner cars available even during COVID, location a short walk from the lively town center & nice owner. The only aspect missing that we would have appreciated would have been a dockhand to assist in windy conditions upon arrival.

Wonderful people, docks in great shape and pretty new. They are building out their clubhouse and will be done soon. And, reasonable rates for it all. Definitely will be back.

The manager called to check on our arrival time and was waiting by the dock to help with the lines. Additional amenities not listed include a shower, wifi, free laundry and lounge.

Great marina. Very professional, efficient and responsive service. A couple of short blocks to Main Street shopping and restaurants. Docks are in excellent condition.

Staff is always friendly and helpful. Owner took time to help us get a technician to repair fridge. Best place in Beaufort.

Spent 2 nights at Homer Smith Docks in July 2020 during trip from Annapolis to Beaufort and back. Great location in Beaufort. We availed ourselves of complementary ice, bikes, laundry, and marina car. Car was essential as we had to restock galley and also had to get a new crank battery. Highly recommended as a convenient and friendly stop on ICW.

This was our first stay at Homer Smith but we've been to Beaufort many times. This recently renovated marina is fantastic and a great alternative to Beaufort Docks - easier to dock (no current), less expensive, and excellent staff. And now that the old bridge had been removed there's virtually no traffic and an easy walk to restaurants etc. Plus there's a great sunset view. Highly recommended.

Great communication and provided all of the service needed.

Nice spot and great staff. Be careful on your approach to stay close to the docks. The green marker is too far to the left and we accidentally grounded as we approached the fuel dock.

Clean, convenient, helpful and friendly staff. Electric included in slip fee. Low price diesel ($1.56/gallon). No appreciable current, unlike Town Dock.

Matt did a good job getting us in to the marina - they have a well marked channel, just need to know where to look for it. If you have not been there before, be sure to ask. Nice facility, close to town.

We love stopping at Homer Smiths - beautiful docks, nice people and a short walk to town.

We stopped here for a few days to let some weather pass, and we’re grateful to have discovered this gem of a marina. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location was perfect for exploring downtown Beaufort.

Another great stay! Tony, Matt and the rest of the crew always provide great service- from docking to wifi (new OnSpot wifi) to the easily obtainable courtesy car. Easy walk to the Saturday market or downtown. We were on the new "D" dock this time in the protected corner spot D1 and were very happy. Easy in and out. I know we will return.

by shelleywparsons on Jun 27, 2019
We really liked how quiet this marina was. Docks are in great shape, and the staff was very friendly. Free ice and a short walk into downtown Beaufort were a bonus.

Great docks and service

by tjastro on Apr 04, 2019
Friendly staff. Nice short walk into town.

by bobhaze101 on Nov 05, 2018
We stayed here because of good reviews and we'd never stayed here before, in our favorite town along the ICW. The floating docks were great, Clark the dockmaster was super-helpful, the laundry (free) and head/shower (only 1) were nice and clean. The reasons I gave 4 stars and not 5 were that the Wifi was intermittent at best, and we were docked next to a couple of working shrimp boats, and their crews were busy most of the night evidently getting ready for a trip. All in all, a nice marina in a great town.

Best floating docks in NC. Staff was very nice and opened the gas pumps up early so I could get on my way.

by deising on May 26, 2018
We enjoyed the excellent docks and electrical power, terrific bath/shower, and the use of the courtesy vehicle for provisioning. Owner, Tony, was a very hospitable host.

by caldonia on Apr 10, 2018
Free (nice) loaner car, beautiful floating docks, good rates, good electric, free pumpout and very helpful and friendly folks. Really enjoyed our stay. Keep in mind that you will be sharing docks with working fishing boats. We didn't use onshore facilities (bathhouse, or free laundry).
Status: Open

Taking transients. Fuel, pump out and courtesy car available.

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.
