Love using Dockwa and love the Carolina Beach mooring field

Stayed on a mooring ball for several days in November, 2020. Larry (harbormaster) is super helpful and friendly. Moorings are well spaced and held in a 40k blow. This has very easy access from the ICW. We came in to the ICW up at Wrightsville Beach, came down to Carolina Beach where we spent a couple weeks (the rest of our time on the hook in the anchorage just north of the mooring fields), then down the Cape Fear river and back to the outside at the Cape Fear inlet. Gave us a nice and safe 20 mile stretch of the ICW, some excellent time at Carolina Beach, then back out to the outside.

Always a nice visit here. We were in a mooring when Tropical Storm Eta came through with 45 mph winds. Was great to be on a town mooring that is inspected.

Easy in easy out 👍 what more could you ask for!

The mooring field is the best stop along this part of the ICW.
The harbor master for the mooring field is one of the most pleasant and helpful persons you can wish for. Thank you Carolina Beach.

Simply simple, we make this a must stop North & South. Quality mooring, easy access, what more could you ask for?

Outstanding location with friendly service.

Nice quiet anchorage with new equipment. Each mooring ball has a pennant with a thimble on it to run your mooring line through.

We reserved two nights on a mooring ball. Arrived Saturday about 4:30 and no balls available. We anchored and cancelled the first night reservation to get a refund. Larry called us shortly thereafter, apologized, and offered a free night on the town dock. We declined, but we thought his responsiveness was excellent. This used to be the problem here, but Larry has really cleared that up. In spite of our disappointment we still gave 4 stars because Larry is doing such a good job.

We had a great two nights. The mooring balls and lines were in good shape and the weather was fabulous.

Carolina Beach has become one of our favorite stops - keeps getting better!

Great spot! We stayed for 2 nights. Called ahead for instructions and Larry, the very kind dock master, told us to pick any open mooring ball and if we needed anything at all to call him. Dinghy dock was very close to mooring balls. Bars, restaurants, hardware stores, and grocery stores not far. We have bikes, so we spent the day running errands and then a couple beers at Good Hops brewing where we played a round of disc golf (for free). Love this funky beach town and mooring field. We’ll be back!

Always a pleasure at Carolina Beach. The moorings are well placed and easy to catch. Close to the dingy dock.

Larry is very nice- great location for 1 -2 block walk to into town/beach. Minimal amenities- great rates. floating dock with 35’ distance fixed dolphin poles. 55’ is max. No wifi. I would definitely go back for another short stay,

Stayed on well kept mooring ball. Nice Publix was a 3/4 mile walk. Beautiful beach was one block from the East public dinghy dock. Ate at the Sea Witch Cafe outside, tables apart for Covid. Food was good casual food, all alcoholic drinks were half price on Wednesdays, and live country music started at 7PM. Nice stay.

Larry, the Dockmaster, is such a nice man. So helpful and friendly!

Great mooring field convenient and affordable
by lkarty on Oct 07, 2020
This was our first stay in Carolina Beach. The area was lovely and we had a first class dinner at the Surf House. There are decent bike lanes for getting around on bicycles and the beach was beautiful. A nice Publix grocery is only about half a mile. There are only two transient slips but if you can get one, the price is terrific!

One of our favorite places. Convenient to restaurants, shopping. Dinghy dock is a one block walk to the beach. Mooring balls and penants in great shape.
by seashanty on May 19, 2020
Very nice stop. Easy in and out from the ICW. Balls have a good length heavy duty pennant with a large thimble to accept two 3/4 to 1” lines. The field tender Larry was very nice to deal with..friendly and helpful.
Thanks for the very nice review! Hope you will visit Carolina Beach again soon. Have a safe trip. Thanks, Larry Harbormaster CB.
