        Visited here recently twice. A great stop and stay for at least two days. Rent car from local Ford dealer is best. The channel while challenging for first timers is actually easy. This channel is a good example of fear of unknown.

        Cruising News:
        What a swell place to spend a couple of days. All of the docks are in good repair, and most of the city has recovered from Hurricane Irene. There is an excitement in the air as if something was about to happen. Children actually play in the streets here. The waterfront invites residents and tourists alike to walk along its length. BBQ pits and picnic tables! Park benches! I keep looking over my shoulder to see if Norman Rockwell is drawing all this, or is it really happening. Someone should make a list of the best Cruisers Restaurants and put the Full Moon Restaurant and Brewery at the top of that list. Their shrimp and crab enchilada is the best in the whole world. Come tie up here. Eat here. You’ll like it here.

        Manteo is a local cruising destination for DOVEKIE and we usually stay for a week (the 7th day is free) at the Waterfront Marina. We come here for all the things there are to do. In town there is the Boat building facility of the NC Maritime Museum and a replica of the Roanoke Marshes screw-pile lighthouse, as well as shops and restaurants. Several excursion boats leave from the waterfront including a pirate experience for young children and parasailing boats. Across from the waterfront is Festival Island with its museum, good film, replica of the Elizabeth II sailing ship, living history encampment, Indian village, art shows and concerts. The Pioneer Theater shows one movie at 8:00 PM and costs $5.00 admission. On Saturday morning a craft fair/ market is set up near the waterfront. There is a fine bike path from town to the northern end of the island where one will find the Ft. Raleigh National Historic Site, the Waterside Theater (Lost Colony and other productions), and Elizabethan Gardens. There is also an NC Aquarium a little out of town. We are here June 14-21, 2010.

        Greetings from Manteo, NC,
        If you are still headed north and are not past Oriental yet one should consider heading from the Oriental/River Dunes Marina area out to Ocracoke and then up the Outer Banks to Manteo.
        This past weekend (always the first weekend in June) was the Ocracoke’s “OcraFolk” music & storytelling festival. What a great weekend to be anchored out in town, along with 27 other boats in the harbor! It’s a great stop and a neat town to visit, the anchorage is well protected with pretty good holding! If you are headed that way BE SURE and hold to green #11 as you are headed into the harbor, bad shoaling on the red side of #10!!!
        Manteo, NC is also a nice stop, complete with a free city dock to tie up to. The town is very quaint with lots of little shops and eateries, omelettes at the Magnolia Grill should not be missed!
        Life’s2Short has really fallen in love with the state of NC and all the wonderful cruising it has to offer. Don’t be in a rush to get north, slow down and enjoy all the Outer Banks area has to offer. Gads, it sounds like I’m a poster boy for the NC travel & tourism council……
        Hope everyone is enjoying the water under their keel!

        We were traveling South in early June on our sailboat. Coming off of the sound to begin the trek to Manteo I found to be “confusing” ; once rounding the Northern section of the island the channel was quite clear all the way into town.
        This was our second trip and stay in Manteo by water. My wife especially enjoys staying in Manteo – obviously the shops which are also suffering this year and some gone due to the economy. One of the items that really makes this a great stay is the park across from the docks; beautiful grounds and free concerts if you catch it on Fridays. Last year we saw the Chinese Acrobats and this year we caught the NC Symphony ; outside , under the stars and FREE. Excellent stop. Ortegas on this trip was good and Poor Richards for standard fare sandwiches, burgers etc.
        Having a 48 ft. mast we had to take the route from Manteo down to Wanchese and out to the Pamlico. All well marked and as opposed to last year I found point of transition from Green to starboard to Red Right return marked very well although the numbers have apparently changed ; did not match the chart marker numbers – had I not been through here before I may have really been confused because of this number situation.

        Manteo – we sailed from Ocracoke there last year and loved it. Caught over 50 Spanish Mackeral on the way in and stayed three days. The city dock folks were friendly and it is an easy walk over to the Elizabeth II. Rental cars are sparce so reserve in advance.

        We went to Manteo the next day, the Sound was calm. Plenty of crabpots though. You only have to follow the markers into Manteo, and you’ll be fine. The channel going out Roanoke Sound has the red markers on the left, the cut channel into Manteo has them on the right (you’re returning). Keep that in mind and you’ll have no problem. Had a very good dinner at the restaurant 1587, I think it is, next to the Marina.

        We visited Manteo in June 2009. No shallow spots in the channel that I recall. Our route from Manteo was through the channel east, then north that leads into Albemarle Sound. I nice restaurant, the Full Moon, is directly across the street from the town dock master’s office. Friendly people in town. We enjoyed the side trip to the Outer Banks. Very nice clean showers and laundry at the marina.

        A word of warning.. as you enter the channel to Shallowbag Bay channel be sure to keep the green marker (coming from the north) to your right AND DO NOT ENTER THE CHANNEL until you pass the green marker. We rubbed bottom by entering too soon.

        John and I have just completed our visit to the Outer Banks, NC (after leaving Coinjock) and found it to be very interesting and well worth the stop.? We based our visit in Manteo, on Roanoke Island at the Manteo Waterfront Marina where Carl Jordan is the dockmaster (252-473-3320.)? This is very centrally located and many restaurants (our favorite, Full Moon Cafe, was right across the street) and shops were close by. We rented a car from local Ford Dealer R D Sawyer which picked us up and delivered us back to the marina–a la Enterprise.? (Enterprise is located ‘out on the island about 30 minutes away’.)?
        We drove out on the Island to Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Hatteras and saw most of the sites including the Wright Brothers Memorial. I would recommend this stop which is a little off the beaten ICW track.? From Hatteras we crossed the Pamlico Sound and Neuse River to join back with the ICW and ended this part of the journey in Beaufort, NC.

        Trish and I did this trip this past November on our way south. We went from Elizabeth City, where the mayor stopped by and spent an hour or so with us aboard Great Expectations; a very friendly place, to Manteo where we stayed at the Waterfront Marina.
        The trip was about 42 statue miles and quite uneventful with the exception of where you turn to starboard to enter the channel to Manteo harbor. There is major shoaling there and the buoys are confusing at this spot. Just take it slow and be careful to follow the right marks. We made it into Manteo without issue but gently hit bottom on our way out.
        We really enjoyed this stop. It was lovely, boater friendly and not crowded. I am sure you will enjoy it as well.

        We arrved in Manteo, Roanoke Island on June 2nd after two worthwhile days at the national park dock (you can anchor free in Silver Lake or pay 60c ft with Golden Age pass) on Ocracoke Island. This dock was the PT Boat dock in WW2 when they were deployed to respond to the German subs crusing our coastline in the early days of the war. What an interesting place—market where you get fish swimming in the morning for evening grilling, nice beaches, time moves a little slower here. The North Carolina Teacher Education Center rep gave of a tour of the old Coast Guard Headquarters which they have renovated for upgrading teacher skills–kind’a teachers Camp David retreat.
        The town dock here in Manteo is a great location from which to enjoy local activities and tour the Outter Banks. Will be here till 8/1 when we head to the Chesapeake with extended stops in Baltimore and month of Sept in DC.
        Based on our trip up the Pamlico if weather is favorable in the future we will use this route verses the Pungo Canal etc to go north and south as we have done that route a number of times now and advantages are out weighed by the abundance of stumps and deadheads that are ever present –besides Manteo and Ocracoke are stacking up to be absolutely wonderful places to stop with tremendous variety of history and current day attractions.
        Thanks again and safe travels.

        I’m at Shallowbag Bay Marina (http://www.marinasouterbanksnc.com) – a first class facility at reasonable rates. Grocery stores, pharmacies, a liquor store and a great little family restaurant called TL’s are all within walking distance. Manteo is a bike ride away – but with plenty of things to do and see. And the Outer Banks themselves (Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills etc) offer just about every experience you need for a holiday or stopover visit – including good fishing, good sailing and endless beaches.
        So much so, I’m thinking of wintering here so that next year I’ll easily have both Chesapeake and the Outer Banks wihin easy reach.

        We just spent a delightful couple of nights at the National Park Service docks at Ocracoke, on the Outer Banks, North Carolina. Docking here is reasonable to begin with, and use of the lifetime senior passport makes cost 60 cents a foot in season, 30 cents a foot off season, $3 or 5 for power. Close to the ferry and tourist area. A definite hidden gem.
        PLEASE NOTE THAT THE NPS LIFETIME SENIOR PASS IS INCREASING IN PRICE THIS AUGUST, FROM $10 TO $80 (I’m sure that will bring down the deficit). If you are age 62 or older, please consider purchasing this pass now.

        We are currently at the NPS docs and they are up and running. This is pre-season, but there have only been a few boats in and out. Dockage is $1.25 per foot per night, power is $2.00/$5.00. There is an updated sidewalk leading to the village. We had a great meal at Dajio and a great one at Eduardo’s Taco Truck. We enjoy the relaxed pre-season vibe on Ocracoke!

        Regarding the comments on whether or not the National Park Service Docks repairs have been completed, according to an article in the local newspaper, yes they have. http://www.ocracokecurrent.com/91315 I was unable to find any current information on the NPS website.

        As of @ 1000hrs this morning theses docks are officially closed til further notice, slated for the end of May, but tentatively. I tried calling the phone number given and got a perennial busy signal. Then called the Park HQ, spoke with a very nice young woman (Karen) who told me the above. I can’t find this anywhere on the NPS website, however. Karen tells me the docks are being renovated, water/power peds, etc. She also was less than optimistic that the work would be completed close to schedule because the weather has been against the project. Fingers crossed, Snowbirds migrating north….

        At the moment we are tied up at the Park Service Dock. We are waiting for someone official to throw us out. The docks are in sound shape but under construction. There are new cleats, large enough to hold a battleship and new fire extinguishers. That is it, no water or electricity. The lady in the office told us we had to move but at the moment we are under a tornado watch. With the heavy weather coming I prefer to remain. Which we shall until someone official throws us out. Our government at work; leave a perfectly good dock to anchor out in bad weather. makes you feel good to know these people always have your best interest at heart.

        Cruising News:
        There is a large barge at the National Parks Service Docks at Ocracoke. They are replacing the pilings for the spare dock for the Ferries.
        They have closed most of the second pier from the ferry and all of the dockage along the water front in front of the spare ferry dock. According to the Park Service Rep, that part of the docks will be closed for about three weeks.
        This reduces the no of boats that can tie up to about 6 +-depending on the size.

        We had a great charter out of Washington on In Concert, a Saga 409 that we bareboated from Carolina Wind.
        Made it to Ocracoke the first day for two nights including dinner at the Back Porch and lunch at Howard’s. Then we were off across the sound to Adams creek to follow the ICW south to Beaufort and and a wonderful two nights anchored in Lookout Bight. Back up the ICW for a quick stop for wine in Oriental, a night anchored in Bonner Bay before the final leg back to Washington.
        I do believe coastal North Carolina is the best cruising area on the east coast – I was very impressed!
        As you asked, I visited the public docks in Ocracoke to assess the dinghy dock. The office was closed and the only floating dock appeared to be in association with the adjacent ferry dock and locked behind a dock fence. A sign (see photo) hung in the office window regarding its use, but again, it appeared locked and unavailable.
        I’ll make a couple phone calls back to the village and if I get more details will let you know.
        Your info and cruising guide were right on it’s with many thanks for your efforts that we had a great trip.
        Cheers,

        They are sandblasting the ferry dock. Noise levels are very high and annoying. If we had known about this we would have made alternate plans. I would not recommend the federal park service docks at this time.

        The National Park Service Docks are a nice and inexpensive stay in the jewel of the Outer Banks. The Pamlico is seldom an easy crossing, but Ocracoke is worth the effort. Lots of history, shops, restaurants, and golf cart rentals. Everything you need is right here.

        We spent 3 nights at Ocracoke Island a couple of years ago. It is a lovely spot with lots to do. The US Park Service docks are not fancy, but are more than adequate. Several good restaurants are within walking distance and the beach is within biking range. Be sure to check out the picturesque lighthouse.

        Subject: Shoaling in channel to Ocracoke NC
        Cruising News: Hi Claiborne, we arrived at Ocracoke yesterday, 31 May 2010, and noted that shoaling has extended around Day Marker Red 10B. Stay to the green side for plenty of water. The shoal extends about 40 ft or so into the channel from the red side starting about 200 ft south of R 10B and going 50 ft or so north of the marker. One sail boat was aground just before we arrived and we heard another one was aground this morning (6/1/10). The ferries are passing between Green 11 and Red 10B without problem by staying to the green side. That was the only difficult spot we saw in Big Foot Slough Channel.

        This is our first visit to the Outer Banks and Ocracoke – what a delight! We are staying at the National Park Service docks ($0.60 ft with the Senior Pass), nice fixed docks, very substantial. We were lucky arriving early afternoon on Memorial Day; saw about 20+ boats heading the other direction after being here for the holiday weekend. The dock was almost empty when we arrived but tonight is almost full with boats arriving for the festival this weekend – the 11th Annual Ocrafolk Festival, Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday June 4-6th. We were planning on leaving Friday but now it looks like we’ll be here a few days longer.

        We have stayed at both the Park docks and Anchorage Marina. If space is available I would go with the Anchorage Marina. The park docks dock pedestals are very rough and there is only 1 working 50 amp connection that I did not trust, so we ran the genny for 3 days. The Anchorage Marina is expensive but it is worth it atleast for my family as they like the cable TV and the pool. You know the saying if Momma aint happy nobody’s happy.

        Unless you have a Golden Age Passport from the National Park Service (for those of us 62 years young) when you arrive, you will need to get one to be eligible for the reduced dockage fees. They are not sold at the ferry terminal where you register your boat. They are sold at the campground, which is a good five miles away (it seemed longer). New topic: The only on shore restroom facilities are the ones used by the ferry passengers, and they can get grody to the max. No reflection on the Park Service – there are just tons of tourists using them. In spite of this shortcoming, realize that, as a boater, you are paying far less than the average tourist per night at this location. For some very interesting and unique shopping, try the Village Craftsman. It’s off the beaten path, but worth the visit.

        We stayed in Ocracoke for four days the week of July 12. Arrived in a 30 knot southwester from Oriental and docked at the empty National Park Service Docks on the north end of Silver Lake (first-come-first-served, $1.25/foot/day and $3/day for 30 amp electric, no dockside showers). The docks are very rough and badly in need of maintenance; make sure your fenders are adequate. One boat did join us before we left on Wednesday. All of the restaurants we visited were good: smacnally’s at the Anchorage Marina, Jolly Roger, Back Porch (try their Vietnamese style Bluefish dish). We usually try to go to Howard’s but have heard relatively bad things about them in terms of service and food quality recently. Ashore this time of year is the usual mix of tourists from the upper banks and the ferries down for a day trip (very crowded in town, not so much at the docks or the beach). There is still a shoal building out from red 10B and from auxiliary uncharted green can 9C. You should give them both a wide berth when exiting or leaving from Big Foot Slough Channel .

        {We spent] two worthwhile days at the national park dock(you can anchor free in Silver Lake or pay 60c ft with Golden Age pass) on Ocracoke Island. This dock was the PT Boat dock in WW2 when they were deployed to respond to the German subs crusing our coastline in the early days of the war. What an interesting place—market where you get fish swimming in the morning for evening grilling, nice beaches, time moves a little slower here. The North Carolina Teacher Education Center rep gave of a tour of the old Coast Guard Headquarters which they have renovated for upgrading teacher skills–kind’a teachers Camp David retreat.

        A pool, the shower and restroom facilities made this marina worth the expense to this sailor on his second trip to Ocracoke. Another benefit is that you are not as close to the ferry dock and thus not subject to the crowds and the noise. The staff was quite helpful in securing my boat. You can rent bicycles and motor scooters from the dockmaster, and enjoy the bar adjacent to the docks. It’s a short bike ride to the lighthouse from here – a must see experience. Though it is closed to the public, it is a wonderful challenge to photographers. Come early, or late, though, to avoid the crowd.

        The marina is a little sketchy for boats drawing more than five feet, and the channel is narrow coming ( sailboats are advised to “hug the greens”), but the marina owners were very hospitable. They cooked up a big dinner of fried fish, hush puppies and fixins just for our club. They knew we were coming, of course. On the down side, the showers leave much to be desired and some of the boats along the outer dock had some polarity lights coming on because of some power issues. But all in all, we had a great one-night stay.

        Hi Claiborne
        We just arrived at Big Trout after calling Edna and Frank at home (they did not answer the Marina number, but it is very early in the season – March 14). Frank met us at the dock when we arrived at 6:30 PM and was very accommodating.
        The Channel in was never less than 10 feet – we stayed about 30 feet off the green markers as one of the posters suggested.
        Thanks for the recommendation – we found it in your book and then went to the website. We had planned to go to Manteo, but a 5 hour bridge closure yesterday at the Onslow bridge kept that from happening.

        Hi Claiborne,
        As you wisely suggested, I talked to Edna Summerlin, owner of the Big Trout Marina with her husband Frank. She assurred me that it was recently dredged, and I could expect 8-10 feet of water. We plan to be there on Tuesday, July 14. I’ll let you know what I find. It is a great place to go. Edna and Frank are most accommodating, and the food at their restaurant is superb down home cooking. We will be cruising in North Carolina for two weeks, with our southernmost point Cape Lookout Bight. Your book is our Bible in NC. Thanks for writing it and making it available.
        Best regards,
        Norman
