A very low-key, beautiful marina in a lovely, historic town. Friendly dockmaster and boat owners nearby.

Nice marina in a quaint little town. Channel entrance is challenging but there is a YouTube video to help with navigation. Would definitely stay here again.

The waterfront shops were nice but the marina was horrible. You could not get anyone to answer the radio or phone to assist with docking or departure.

The only thing that was missing are the dock cleats

Great stop and very reasonable price.

Nice marina. I wish every Marina would provide pre arrival information like this Marina. The sent slip assignment, approach video, all codes and passwords and a MAP of the marina so you know exactly where you are going. Dock master works in museum during the week so not on docks to assist, but answered all questions by phone and was very helpful. Great little downtown with shops and restaurants. Nice quiet Marina. Did not use facilities so can’t comment. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect. We will be back soon.

Nice municipal marina in a quaint historic town. Docks are well maintained, but fixed wooden docks with no built in fenders or cleats. Dock master is only on duty weekend afternoons, but is still responsive to emails (Thanks for the warm welcome, Chris). No Wake zone is followed by local boaters, so very restful. Local car rental company (B & R) at the Ford dealership beats national prices, but limited availability as to cars and timing. Overall a good experience so we'll be returning.

I have a 38' boat with an 11'8" beam. My boat barely fit in the slip they assigned me. Location of the marina is great! Walk off your boat and you're in the middle of town. I'd stay here again but request a larger slip.

by Scott O. - Verified user on Jul 17, 2023
Although we had an excellent stay, our assigned slip was occupied when we arrived on a Sunday after hours. Likely not the fault of the dock master! Excellent communication via email and dockwa.

by Bobby H. - Verified user on Jul 17, 2023
I had a great stay. Everything is close, convenient, and quaint. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is that no boat trailer parking is provided. Fortunately, my hotel allowed me to park it there.

No service. Office closed. No dock attendants. Emergency number on office door was not answered. Restrooms dirty.

We really enjoyed staying at the marina for the 4th of July celebrations! Great view of the fireworks right from the boat. We will certainly repeat the experience in the future.

We had a great 4 days here. Good communication from the Dockmaster. Manteo is a great little town. We came up from Beaufort, NC for a family wedding and the marina made a great place to stay. Good ole NC charm and hospitality!

by Jeremy H. - Verified user on Jun 26, 2023
Great location, very sturdy fixed docks. All services are close. Town water is treated but a little earthy (noticeable in restaurants too) we draw 5’ and approach from Albermarle Sound is straightforward using Aquamaps & USACE sonar data. Definitely worth the trip & using Dockwa makes reservations easy since dock master office is only manned part time, answers VHF16 only from 12-4. Outside these hours self serve , a clear map of the marina & slip location is automatically emailed with your reservation.
