Beautiful small southern town, nice marina with easy access and everything within walking distance. Planning to stop back next season for a longer stay.

We enjoyed our stay for the Independence Day fireworks!! Chris helped us find our slip as we are new to Dockwa. It would be helpful if the assigned slip was included in the email reminder so that all of the needed information is available in one place. The Manteo Marina is very easy to approach with our 42' sailboat and convenient to restaurants and shops.

Dockmaster Chris was a big help. Had a great time in Manteo

Manteo is always a nice stop. If you’re on a T-head, you’ll want to rig your fenders horizontally to bear against the pilings. Pay close attention to the intersection where the Manteo Channel turns off. If you are coming from the north, the red markers will switch from port side to stbd at the junction.

Love this place! If not for having to cross the Albemarle Sound it would get 5 stars. Be vigilant about the weather forecasts. Always have a plan but NEVER stick to a schedule!

Fantastic marina. Location is perfect being right in the center of Manteo. We were able to walk to all the shops and restaurants. The marina has nice and clean bathroom and showers just steps from the slip. Also just a short boat ride to the sandbar. We'll definitely be back.

Lovely town, wonderful bath house/ laundry. The dockmaster is part time and was not on duty when we came in with 18MPH winds. Also pilings…no cleats!

Made a reservation on Friday for a 2 night stay. No response and the Dockwa reservation expired without a confirmation from the town. No call back or email. I hear there is no dockmaster there any more since Covid. Sporadic hours and not a good experience for manteo. We probably won’t be back to manteo after our experience.
Marina Response:
Sorry you missed us your reservation was made at 16:57:28 our office closes at 5:00pm.

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.

by Robert B. - Verified user on Sep 19, 2023
The only thing that was missing are the dock cleats
