Good Report on Upper Pungo River Anchorages, AICW Statute Mile 127.5
These anchorages lie just off the AICW, north and northwest of Waterway marker #23 and a short jog west of the Alligator River’“Pungo River Canal’s shoal-prone southerly entrance. The easternmost haven is, in our collective opinion, about as good as it gets!
We anchor here on a regular basis. It is a great location just prior to a northbound entry to the canal. Leave the ICW at marker 24 and you will see no less than 8 foot to the charted anchorage. Good holding in soft mud. It is exposed to the East ‘“ South but if it is really blowing you can find more shelter further up the creek. There is a small beach if you have pets. Verizon service comes and goes.
