Great sturdy mooring lines with balls. Perfect place to stop off the ocean to rest. The mooring balls are well far enough apart and so sturdy. We felt so secure we slept sound. We only had one rolling from a fishing boat that ignored the no wake sign. I would stay again.

Very nice mooring tackle, excellent location with plenty of good restaurants, grocery, and hardware stores. Extremely nice dinghy dock walking distance to everything, I used Uber to the state park as well. Larry is extremely knowledgeable and patient while I worked out credit card payment with Dockwa, highly recommend.

This is a safe and as evening progressed quiet place to spend the night. The dingy dock provided access to take the bosons mate (our dog) to shore. Mooring line was easy to pick up. We will stay again if opportunity presents itself. Thanks!

Harbor master is outstanding! The mooring balls are in excellent shape. We stay often and will continue to stay on the mooring balls. Thank you! TripleF.

Excellent mooring tackle. Great location. Dinghy dock on beach side is at south end of mooring field. For west side access where most of the bars and restaurants are, dinghy dock is at far south end of bay. If you have a deep keel be careful at the entrance.

Very pleasant mooring, a lot of boat traffic but most were courteous with their wake, easy walk to the beach from the dingy dock, will definitely be back.

Larry is the best, called to make sure everything was satisfactory and had a nice catching up from our previous stop a couple years ago.

It wasn’t easy to hook up to the mooring due to wind gusts of 15 to 20 knots. Great once I got tied up. Great dinghy dock and a beautiful beach for walking or even surfing!

Excellent location, very close to beach and town. Great access with dinghy. Perfect for paddle boarding.

Easy in/out. Good mooring master, friendly and helpful. Convent location.

Excellent mooring field with easy line pick-up. Dinghy dock was close by, in excellent shape and only a couple blocks to the beach. The public dinghy dock a the south end of the harbor gives easy access to great restaurants.

Stayed for 3 nights on a mooring ball. Great breeze the entire time. Used the dingy dock to access the beach 2 blocks away. Also drove the dingy over to Carolina Beach Inlet, pulled the dingy on shore and had the beach to ourself.

Wonderful stay in Carolina Beach. We stopped last year but late in the year so most things were closed for the season. This time we spent a couple of days to explore. Nice town, great food and the best True Value Hardware store anywhere. Thanks very much!

Great mooring! Great location. Had a great time with my friends in the Southport Yacht Club. We’ll be back!!

Excellent location. Even with the shutdowns of Covid19, at least we could take our puppies ashore for some really nice walks. Publix and hardware stores were really close for some needed essentials.

Felt very secure. Painters are in excellent condition and boaters in area were very courteous when passing. Highly recommend this mooring field!

by Roberto R. - Verified user on May 21, 2020
This is the best mooring field anywhere on the east coast from Massachusetts to Florida. I love that one can pick up any ball they want rather than maneuvering around a tight mooring field trying to find a particular number. The pennants are new and lines are clean and dry, wrapped in a bowl on top of the ball. Perfection when it comes to moorings!

We routinely come up here during the summer and enjoy it each time. Early morning activity from fisherman getting underway can get a bit noisy for an hour or so...perhaps just on weekends. Mooring balls further from the landing dock may be quieter by not as convenient. Small grocery one block away has ice and other supplies.
