These are not the first comments of unhappiness with prices at the Beaufort Municipal Docks we have had expressed here. Price can easily be blamed on the economy, but attitude and service should never be compromised. Despite such dockage problems, the town of Beaufort, NC is still known as a real success story along the Waterway, and this wonderful port of call remains one of our favorites, anytime, anywhere!
Used to like going in here. As others have stated prices are high and most of staff has an attitude. I believe they are city employees with no concept of customer service. Would recommend city hire a contractor to operate facility. Similar to what Fernandina Marina did with great results.
Morehead Yacht basin is much better and only $6 taxi ride if you want to eat in Beaufort.
I used to stop at this dock every time north and south until about 7 years ago we got into a dispute because their fuel price was so much higher than Jarrett Bay. His comment was that maybe I should just stay at Jarrett Bay. Have not been back since.
