Cruisers who are willing to take a 6.4 nautical mile sojourn off the AICW, west on Pamlico River, can center broad South Creek, off the (what else) southern shores of Pamlico River. The marked entry channel lies east of Indian Island.
Shortly after entering South Creek, Bond Creek will come abeam along the southern banks. Like Captains Phil and Aven (see below), for many years we have found a very secure place to drop the hook on these waters. However, even though you will spot a few private homes from these waters, there is not really a place to go ashore, and certainly no provisioning nearby!
If you don’t mind being on your own ground tackle, we are in Bond Creek, just up the Pamlico River on the port side. It is a great hurricane hole with lots of room protected from all sides.
