    Please excuse me adding to my previous comments on Northwest Creek Marina but, with the passing of Hurricane Irene recently I really feel it’s worth adding:
    The standard of preparation and service at this marina went WAY beyond anything we have experienced in any other marina.
    During the storm (“during”,mind you) the staff were OUT ON THE DOCKS checking and adjusting the boats’ lines and hauling boats when needed.
    Carol & I were safely tucked into the hotel overlooking the marina throughout the storm and took videos (which can be seen at HurricaneIrene.Muttlets.Com) of the staff working in 60mph winds and water up to their chests.
    Several owners had left headsails up and the staff went round removing them and stowing them safely (remember, Irene was expected to be a cat2+ hurricane on arrival). They had lines strung across the marina channels to reduce any damage which might be caused if a boat did break away. They dismantled all the mains power units.
    After the storm, we had power back on the docks just as soon as the power company had returned power to the Fairfield Harbour area and all the cross channel lines cleared ready for the next weekend.
    I can’t say enough good things about this marina. It just keeps getting better!
    Please see HurricaneIrene.Muttlets.Com. They really earned the money we pay there and more (although I won’t tell them that, just in case!).

    Carol & I bought our boat (Whitby 42) in February ’11, local to New Bern. We berthed her here at the marina intending to stay a month. The marina and marina staff and the staff of the Hurricane hotel/restaurant were so pleasant and helpful and the work we got done was done so well and promptly that we extended to 3 months. Then, in addition to the friendliness of the people (staff and berth-holders) we decided that we should really be cruising here while we had the chance… extension to 6 months!
    We have lived-aboard in many marinas up the east coast but we totally agree that this is the most enjoyable one we have stayed at (although not live-aboard). We live in Florida and have to feel confident that the boat will be well taken care of; and we are. The staff are excellent at the marina.
    We know it’s a long chug or sail up to New Bern but this place is well worth a visit at least and if you are leaving your boat for a while, this is one of the most reliable places to do so. If you want work done on the boat, there are people who will set a schedule and actually stick to it (what a concept!) and do a great job (am I allowed to mention Harvey Smith, a very local diesel expert who does tremendous work at an excellent rate?).

    Called there in March 2010. Good slip rates for long-term boats. Quite competitive for what you get. Many amenities (A fitness center – wow!). Too far up the Neuse for us, but well worth considering.
