        We spent a windy night here in July 2013. Excellent holding in mud and great protection from all but northerlies. No apparent landing.

        I was told that there is a town ordinance prohibiting anchoring longer than one week in Bath Creek. I left my boat on the hook there for two weeks and was threatened with a “violation” by some town official. Paul Minor at Bath Creek Marina was nice enough to come out and warn me.

    • Blounts Creek Anchorage (21.8 Nautical Miles off the AICW, on Pamlico River)


      Blounts Creek Anchorage

      Location: south of Blounts Bay and marker #2, and north of the charted 15 foot fixed bridge
      Minimum Depth: 8 feet (see special note below)
      Special Note: the entrance to Blounts Creek from Blounts Bay is extremely tricky and inadequately marked. The use of a GPS chartplotter is mandatory, and, even then it’s possible to find the bottom. This anchorage should only be entered by adventurous skippers piloting craft that draw 4 feet or less
      Swing Room: sufficient room for vessels as large as 36 feet
      Foul Weather Shelter: Superb, as good as it gets
