Ocracoke/Silver Lake Harbor Anchorage (off the AICW, on Pamlico Sound)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 04-11-2007

Ocracoke/Silver Lake Harbor Anchorage
Lat/Lon: 35 06.774 North/075 59.056 West
Location: in the heart of Ocracoke Island’s Silver Lake Harbor, east of markers #7 and #8
Depth: 8 feet
Navigation Detail: Click Here For Navigational Detail of this Anchorage
Swing Room: sufficient room for vessels as large as 55 feet
Foul Weather Shelter: Excellent, good harbor for any weather short of a hurricane
Dinghy Dock Access: the long popular dinghy dock at the National Park Service docks was destroyed by a hurricane and has not been replaced. Agile crews can climb up from their dinghy via an “emergency ladder.” It’s better to tray and find a spot to temporarily tie up your dink at the nearby (now closed) Community Store, or one of the lightly used inn docks
Nearby Provisioning: sadly, nearby historic Ocracoke “Community Store” is now closed, fresh seafood can be purchased within walking distance at the Ocracoke Seafood co-op store located on the harbor’s stores
Pet Friendly: the only way to gets pets ashore now is being lucky enough to find a spot to tie up your dinghy at the old Community Store or one of the inn docks. Once ashore, there are plenty of places to walk your pooch or “meow.”
