        Very knowledgeable and helpful dock hands.
        Laid back marina, great place to stop. Great atmosphere due to the friendly folks running it.
        Showers are super clean and they provide towels, soap, and shampoo.
        Tiki bar is cash-only.
        All-in costs seem to be about $2.25 a foot.

        Great help getting us in. Adequate depth under our 4' keel. Bathrooms good. Restaurant was closed, but we've eaten good food here before and were disappointed we arrived on the only day closed during the week. However, great meal at M&M's restaurant a short walk away. My wife likes shopping in this little town.

        7-2-17 . Last time here 7 1/2 years ago and just as great then as now!. Left Belhaven for Oriental. Tom and Joe helped us tie up. Tom owner. Pole docks with small finger slips. Tiki bar and Toucan grill still open and food great. Wifi strong as is Verizon. Great dog spots right off back of boat. Showers great- even provide towels.Very sheltered marina and Joe-dock hand- the best. Don’t know yet re the w/d or cable. Small grocery less than a mile away- nice for bicycle ride. Still one of our very favorites! Ice cream across is a musty stop!!

        The Oriental Marina is in downtown Oriental, has twelve slips, and is much more protected than other marinas in the area. It has a full service hotel, a restaurant, and exceptionally clean showers. Once there, most all of Oriental’s shopping and eating facilities are within a short walking distance.

        Located just off the Neuse River across from the ICW entrance to Adams Creek, this marina is within the quaint village of Oriental. The harbor entrance is a quick turn to starboard just after the breakwater entrance to Smith & Greens Creek, and well before the highway bridge. The marina is at the dead end of the harbor, and has dockage available in several fixed slips. Fuel is available and the marina has a pool and a restaurant. There are a few nearby stores and other restaurants. Oriental is a favored harbor location for sail boaters. There is also a good size commercial fishing fleet that uses the harbor.

        We do very few marinas, but we love this one. Great showers, friendly staff, and good on-site restaurant. A bunch of us were stuck there for three days because of the weather and the dockmaster drove us to the grocery and a fresh produce market. We have also gotten rides back from the grocery folks after walking the mile to get there. A good chandlery-hardware store-gift shop a half block away and lots of good restaurants. Not to be missed!

        We spent a week at Oriental Marina. Very nice and helpful marina personnel. The only negative I find is the lack of pump out capability. Especially in light of a week’s stay.
        We enjoyed a meal at M&M while enjoying a lovely sunset. Also, there’s a very nice art store, Down East Canvas & Gallery, located just across the main road (at the bridge) from the other Oriental marina. Lovely original watercolors. Additionally, the store owners do marine canvas work.
        One item of note. We needed to get to a pharmacy as well as having the desire for a larger grocery store. A lady heard me asking the marina personnel how far a walk it would be. After learning the trek could be at least 10 miles, she offered to drive my wife and I, strangers to her, to handle the errands. One of the many examples of the great people we’ve met along our way.

        Below/south of Belhaven is Oriental…you need to stop in Oriental, NC on the way down the ditch… Very Very Very cruiser friendly, low key and down to earth!!! First choice for dockage is the Oriental Marina…this is the original, small marina (maybe 12 slips) in the old part of town – it has a pool and restaurant immediately there, and you can walk everywhere (actually, you can walk everywhere in Oriental no matter where you are) - – this shows a webcam of the dozen slips at Oriental Marina.
        Make sure you you stop – you can anchor out just above the bridges – bear to port at the fork and anchor… dinghy dock at the east end of the docks of the Oriental Marina.

        Oriental Marina, good location, friendly folks. A few good stores nearby to get whatever you may be missing, the local supermarket is within (long) walking distance.

        I know from my last visit [to Oriental] that there are several restaurants within walking distance, the best being Toucan Grill at Oriental Marina. A grocery store is about 1 mile away from
        Oriental Marina. Oriental Marina is very animal friendly. Limited number of slips, maybe 10? There are 2 ‘Free’ docks adjacent to Oriental Marina but they have always been occupied and they are shallow. The basin Oriental Marina is in is easy to access and their slips are very well protected. There is also a well equipped ships store and provisioning store 1 block from Oriental Marina. Oriental downtown is small revitalized 3 or 4 block section with some gift, antique, and knick knack shops and some restaurants and snack shops. Fresh seafood available in season otherwise fresh frozen.
