Moss Landing Marina is the clear choice for staying in downtown Washington. It's a short distance off the ICW, but worth the trip. Very nice facility with spacious bathroom/showers, a world class captain's club, and awesome sunset views. The docks are all floating and built of composite material. There are several neat restaurants to enjoy in the quaint downtown that's literally next door. You can walk there in 3 minutes or you can even borrow a bike from the marina's ship store to go explore the town. We look forward to our next visit.
Our new Marina on the Pamlico River provides a safe harbor for your boat and a comfortable home for you and your family in the historic town of Washington, North Carolina. The modern marina that includes 92 boat slips ranging in sizes from 30 to 60 feet is designed to accommodate both power and sailing vessels up to 60 feet.
The Marina at Moss Landing occupies a sheltered, prime waterfront location along the Pamlico River, within an easy walk to the charming, coastal town named for our first President. “Little Washington”, as it is sometimes called, is located 25 miles from the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) and only 65 nautical miles from the southernmost tip of the Outer Banks. Washington, North Carolina is located along US 17, the major coastal route along the eastern seaboard.
When it comes to boating, the waters of the Pamlico Sound are second to none with the Pamlico, Tar and Pungo Rivers providing wide river access to the ICW. The areas mix of fresh and saltwater makes for excellent year round fishing. Sail the same waters Edward Teach, the infamous pirate Blackbeard, once scoured. From pirate ships of yesteryear to today’s mega yachts, these waters can accommodate boats of any size.
After a day of boating, you can visit the North Carolina Estuarium next door or revel in the rich Civil War history of Historic Downtown Washington, a coastal riverfront town full of shops, restaurants and southern charm. The laid back, relaxed atmosphere is inviting.
