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.
The Kenney family has owned and operated Blackwell Point Marina for 14 years. All new piers, water and electric service was new in 2016. Located on Smith Creek in Oriental, North Carolina. Just past Day Marker #10 on the right. The following is a list of amenities we offer:
If you have any questions or requests, we will do our best to see you and your vessel are treated as our special guests.
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.
Height Marker Day Boards are posted at eye level on the bridge. The water level is at a measured point on these Height Markers to allow the boater to see what the current clearance is.
