Pembroke Creek/Edenton Downstream Anchorage – Claiborne’s Review

Anchoring opportunities on Edenton’s waters are limited. There is one shallow haven to consider if you pilot a boat with limited draft. Some local sailcraft are regularly berthed at mooring buoys on the waters of Pembroke Creek west and north of marker #4, near 36 03.436 North/076 37.139 West.
There is barely room for visiting craft as large as 40 feet to anchor, but be warned that depths run as shallow as 4½ feet. Protection is more than adequate for all but strong easterly winds. A pleasing assortment of local homes overlook the northerly banks.
A fairly long dinghy ride downstream on Pembroke Creek will bring your dink to the breakwater enclosed Edenton City Marina Docks. Here you can temporarily moor your dinghy hard by a set of public launching ramps. Edenton’s downtown/historic district lies within easy walking distance.
