    The upper reaches of the Pasquotank River to Dismal Canal and Goat Island are the most beautiful that we have experienced in extensive NC cruising from Swansboro to Norfolk. We do use the southern side of Goat/#11 and find good holding and protection in 8 – 9 feet of water.

    Goat Island Anchorage is located along the Dismal’s Pasquotank River, just before you reach the bustle of Elizabeth City. It’s your chance to experience the swamp for a peaceful night at anchor, tucked safely behind mosquito screens. Listen for owls and frogs, seemingly in the wilderness, but safely within earshot of homes hidden along the oxbow canal.
    It’s an ideal anchorage: wide and deep yet boasting all-around protection. You can anchor anywhere in the oxbow behind Goat Island, selecting a spot to get the best protection for the night’s forecast.
    Goat Island even has a small dock with a boardwalk (the Goat Island Camping Platform) where you can go ashore to explore or land a pet.
    The anchorage is well-positioned for both north- and southbound staging. Only 7 miles to the south, you can treat yourself to dockage at one of Elizabeth City’s free options: Mid-Atlantic Christian University Docks, Jennette Brothers Bulkhead, or the Elizabeth City Courtesy Docks and Bulkhead.
    And cruiser-friendly Elizabeth City is the perfect pit stop, with many stores and restaurants, and free rides to and from the local supermarket.
    Best and see you On the Water,
    Captains Mark & Diana Doyle

    Goat Island is a great spot. We liveaboard at Lambs Marina and frequently go anchor out for a weekend at the island. Very peaceful, save for the occasional PWC or powerboaters blasting by.

    The anchorage “behind” Goat Island is peaceful…holding is good and protection is excellent….if you’re real lucky and leave early you may get some awesome reflections on your way North or South!
