Stayed at Town Creek Marina for a night. Staff were really nice and helpful. Unfortunately the marina was in need of repair; we had no power or water. I couldn’t recommend it.

I had mechanical problem and SeaTow recommended this marina because they had mechanics. Steve Tulevech was service manager and handled problem. Their mechanic fixed problem and the charge was very reasonable. They also have very good restaurant with seafood at reasonable prices. I recommend this marina. They have parts department if you need any parts or mechanical supplies.

We are staying at Town Creek Marina tonight. Stayed here before. Very friendly pleople and nice Restaurant. However the rate you mention is wrong. They charge $2.40/foot. They still give the 25% boat US discount which brings it down to $1.80.

I’d highly recommend the Town Creek anchorage over the Taylor Creek anchorage. We stayed at the Town Creek anchorage for a couple of weeks in December of ‘09 while waiting for a good window to Charleston. We always held well, never really saw a west wind that we cared about and it’s an easy dinghy ride around the corner to the town dinghy dock. I don’t know if the Town Creek Marina is still in business, but the restaurant there was pretty good (excellent steamed oysters and shrimp in season). They were also pretty nice people – one guy who worked there gave me a ride to the gas station to fill my dinghy tank (their pumps were shut down for service). If you don’t mind walking (which we never did), the Piggly Wiggly is literally 1.0 miles from the anchorage, and the marina didn’t seem to mind us tying up our dinghy. Things might be different during peak season vs. December though.

Town Creek marina. Where do I start? Nice friendly helpful people. They do need to work on communication skills with their own
employees better but their attitude is good overall. They got us into some tight spots coming in and again trying to pump out and again trying to pump out again on our way out. The pump out never did work and its not particularly easy to get to. Made more difficult by them not telling us until we were upon it that there is a shallow area and you need to cut a corner….hard to not go aground. This could have been avoided in our face to face talk when we scheduled the pumpout.
As we pulled in, we had a perfect approach, with hand waiting at the dock……then as we got closer, he left and ran to another boat which was already tied and secured to help them with their spring lines……which made us have to circle and approach again…..twice.
He was a kid….a nice kid we became fond of but again…….such a busy marina needs better skills and communication.
The restuarant on site is excellent. Staff is family oriented and likeable and helpful. We just got the feeling they are in over their heads with so many boats…….and they are not set up to be as attentive to transients as they could be tho they did try.
Clean facilities and dog friendly with of course lots to do nearby. We will probably stay somewhere else on our way back south tho. We were fairly frustrated when we left.

just wanted to forward a truly great cruising experience.
We have an electronic 5 KW generator (BTW: I will never again, if at all possible, buy another fancy genny with all the bells and whistles, give me the old fashioned, if it runs it generates) that had yet another electronic sensor go bad.
We were in Beaufort NC and I called Town and Country Marine (the authorized generator warranty repair facility). Eric the tech drove over to the Sanitary Restaurant ($10/night, no hook ups) and took a look at the problem and said he would order parts. We proceeded to go over to Beaufort Town Docks ($2.25/ft I believe, plus electric, grade c bathrooms), where we stayed for two nights (didn’t need the genny here so no hurry on parts). I called Margie at TCM and she asked me what I was doing paying for slip fees at BTDs; she told me to get right over there, no slip fees, since they were doing the work.
Due to a bunch of circumstances, we ended up staying at TCM from Thursday through Wednesday morning. Eric made several trips to the boat, troubleshooting
the problem and getting parts. When it was all said and done the bill was only $17.50 for part shipping, as the generator was still under warranty.
They treated us like Royalty, let us use the facilities, courtesy car. Everything.
I wouldn’t even begin to promise everyone that anytime you stopped for maintenance work you will get this type of royal treatment. The most important thing was they kept us informed. Told us what was happening; when there was a delay, we knew about it. They treated us with the best of customer service. And yes they advertise in the Waterway and Maptech cruising guides.
So when you swing through Beaufort NC, and you need a slip for the night or if you need some work done, give Margie or Steve a call, and tell ‘em Happy Clamz
sent you.
