Great wifi. A little bit of a walk to town. Docks are very nice. Small marina, not super deep but ok. Would stay again.

Nice family owned and operated Marina. A few blocks from downtown but quiet and accommodating for a very nice stay.

Magical little town. The marina was perfect for us. Steve was helpful and very kind. Use of the golf cart was a bonus.

Steve and the folks at Blackwell Point were VERY accommodating when we found the public dock to be full. Mainly sailboats here, but the dock tenants were friendly, helpful, and gracious to us powerboaters. Use of the golf cart to get to town was an extra bonus!

Blackwell Point Marina is owned and managed by someone who understands boats and boaters! The docks are excellent, facilities are clean and you are welcomed with true "southern hospitality". The slips are open to beautiful views, easy transiting in and out and in a nice quiet location. Whether you are looking to stay a week or a year, we highly recommend Blackwell Point Marina.

As you enter Oriental Harbor, you will notice a fixed bridge. This bridge leads to Smith Creek. The bridge has a fixed height of 45'. Please consider your mast height before you decide to head towards Smith Creek.
