Report from Belhaven/Pantego Creek, AICW Statute Mile 135.5

Belhaven/Pantego Creek Anchorage is found on the waters of Pantego Creek, off the Pungo River, west-southwest of unlighted daybeacon #8. The town of Belhaven is within easy dinghy distance, and there is NEW dockage available at the recently opened city dock. (see http://cruisersnet.net/?p=81838)

Belhaven anchorage is much the same today as it was when we first read about it in your “Cruising Guide to Coastal North Carolina” – plenty of room to anchor in 10 ft but still having a couple of shallow places near G11. You can still anchor beyond the daymark, which is within rowing distance to the National Wildlife provided boat ramp, where we left our dinghys. Additional dockage for dinghies is provided by the city at mid-town, but it’s a higher step up to land. I’ve heard it said that Belhaven is not good anchoring because of the soft mud but in the several times I have anchored here there’s been no trouble in up to 20 knots of wind. River Forest Marina still has diesel, water and pump out and charges $1.50 per foot for dockage. At a separate location River Forest also has a full service yard with an excellent mechanic.
We ate out at the one restaurant we could find, Fishhooks, where we had cocktails and and excellent meal at very reasonable prices. An Ace Hardware is in the middle of town and has it’s own library (of all things) with very inexpensive used books for sale on an amazingly wide variety of subjects.

Belhaven has new town docks in the center of town with no fee ! No electric or pumpout for free but nice.
The best seafood we have had in a long time is 4 blocks from the dock at Georgies in Belhaven. Georgies is a great value too.

We stayed at the new town dock at Belhaven, NC this last week.
Narrow entrance, but basin to turn around. Room for three to four boats depending on size. Tie to poles, no cleats. No water or power, No assistance unless someone is there.
Right in the middle of town, short walk down to Georgies Sports and Oyster bar, where the seafood is great. Sitting at the bar the guys will shuck your steamed oysters. We rafted up to companion boat comfortably for the night.
I would stay here again.
