Frank Erwin, author of the brief blurb below, is a good friend and an MTOA Board of Directors member. Captain Frank gives good advice on where to safely drop the hook in this popular port of call!
The neat anchorage is in Taylors Creek just in front of the Beaufort Town Docks – (252)728-2503…lots of current…try to come in only at slack tide… you can also anchor out in the creek in front of the docks…usually crowded on weekends… but 3 dinghy docks and very cruiser friendly….very historic and 2 pre-revolutionary cemeteries…. or nearby and protected is Town Creek Marina – http://www.towncreekmarina.com with plenty of room out front for anchorage.
