        Deep Point Marina, NC
        Deep Point Marina, near Southport, NC. Great marina, we were the late arrival so we were on or near the fuel dock. This was in front of the ferry station, as the ferry docked at the landing the wakes were more than you would expect at a dock, so the rocking from the ferry as it came and left was an issue until after 1:00 am and started early dark thirty the next morning.
        The marina is very nice the crew are great and Curtis treated us very well. A beautiful pool is near the dock masters office, just a short walk. We took full advantage, it is still very warm.

        Just left Deep Point Marina and can’t say enough great things about the staff, facility and the other boaters I met there. Everyone was extremely hospitable and ready to help with whatever you needed. Historic Southport is a good two miles away from the marina so a ride is needed. Also, there are no grocery stores in historic Southport so you need to go a little farther to get to a Food Lion or Walmart. However, there are lots of great restaurants in Southport. Try Loco Joe’s for an incredible pork sandwich and Bernie’s for a deep fried croissant! Docking fee was extremely reasonable and since we arrived in December there was a special on top of that for staying three days. We will come back!

        Deep Creek Marina: I had to hole up in this marina last spring to wait out a storm, facilities were above average, free use of the washer dryer, nice pool and a great friendly bunch of people. The staff was great, helpful and friendly. Fuel; available at a decent price. Only drawback was the very busy ferry terminal next door. I would highly recommend this stop to anyone AND the prices were reasonable.

        This marina is located on the western shore of the Cape Fear River just north of downtown Southport. Deep Point has floating docks with slips and T-heads and is the operating terminal for the Bald Head Island Ferry. This marina is just a bit south of the NC State Ferry terminal for the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry. It is near the Cape Fear River channel Red marker 20 (nun buoy).
        Fuel is available and, seasonally, there is a café in the ferry terminal. Travel into Southport requires a taxi or a car ride. Taking the ferry to visit Bald Head Island is a convenient option when stopping here.

        Thanks to Cruisers Net we found a new jewel of a marina. In Southport, NC we “just went in for fuel” to the new Deep Point marina because we noted a very good price on fuel. Rob the marina dock master made us feel so at home that we ended up staying two nights and the price was right. $1.14/ft. with our Boat US discount. The baths and showers were extra clean and new, the pool looked great and the staff was so friendly and helpful. We definitely will be returning. The people can make or break the marina experience.
        Thank you Cruisers Net for keeping us informed and helping us to save some money on fuel and I am sure this service helps to spur competition in the fuel market. I know that we don’t even consider buying fuel from a marina who will not respond to your price inquires. Keep up the great work.

        We have had an outstanding experience at Deep Point Marina. It is a new facility made great by the Rob Gandy and staff. They are truly committed and caring for cruisers. Rob has certainly gone above and beyond for us during our stay. Also, the basin is so protected, we weathered out two strong cold fronts here barely feeling the wind at all. I highly recommend Deep Point Marina.

        Deep Point Marina was one of our best stops on our south bound trip from Stoney Point, New York to Fernandina, Florida! They were still under construction at the time we were there, but the hospitality we received was unmatched. These people really care about their customers. The dockmaster (Rob Gandy) even loaned us his personal vehicle to go to the local grocery store. We will always make Deep Pointe Marina one of our stops when traveling up and down the east coast.

        Not a cruiser any more (cruising is how I discovered this place!) but live here full time. There are lots of choices on where to eat. Here’s the list during full season. Off season, many will close or reduce their hours. It’s too early to tell right now.
        Here goes:
        Open to everybody:
        At the Marina:
        Delphina (Opened 5/3 for linch; Should open 5/17 for dinner): Mexican, Southwestern, Cuban. Full Liq. Everything under $14
        SandPiper cafe: Great Premium Ice Cream and Super coffee/ cappuccino.
        Mojo’s at the Harbor: Full Menu, Full Liq. Could be great cruisers bar but not. Pricey! Soft serve and and Snow cones.
        Will ‘O the Wisp: At the sail shop on the marina. Self serve beer and wine. Also have Luna Pops (a fruit based popsicle known in Mexico as Paletas. Outrageously addicting and refreshing! Best place to hang out and socialize.

        Elsewhere on the island:
        Peli: At the Bald Head Island Club; by the Tennis courts. Breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Open to everybody and you do NOT need to be a member. About 1mi from marina.
        Maritime Market cafe: At the market mid island. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Market is slightly more expensive than mainland markets ans has most everything. Good selection of Beer and wine. About 2 mi from marina.
        Mike’s Bites: at the east end of the island. Take away only. Mostly premade sandwiches. We do expect changes this year but are not known just yet. About 4mi from marina.

        Available with temporary membership to transients (temporary memberships are available at the marina and are about $20. Rates may have gone up):
        Bald Head Island Club: Two dining rooms, great food and full use of facilities: Pool, tennis, croquet, exercise room. Golf is extra. About 1mi from the marina.
        Shoals Club. East end of the Island. Dinning room and Sandbar Grill. About 4+mi from the marina.
        That’s it. If I can supply any more information please don’t hesitate to let me know.

        Claiborne,
        We are here at Bald Head Island Marina on the end of A dock. Made “reservations” by phone. Entrance had a crane working on the S side of inlet as we came in and were able to dodge it. The current was ebbing but didn’t note it as I was trying to miss the crane. Went to fuel pier first, Will helped us there and loaned, us an adapter (50 to 30 amp) for the power. He ran around to help us tie up and plug in. Good friendly service, floating dock so goes up and down with the tide; so did not notice any current in the marina. The marina appeared less than 50% full, but was told that those slips were owned. The marina is busy with the ferries, vehicle and passenger. We bumped at the slip, but that was the wind. Most people did not seem to be on their boats so the small restrooms were not a problem.
        We ate lunch at MoJo’s the dock side restaurant, pot roast sandwich, excellent ( I ordered it out of curiosity) My wife had grilled chicken sandwich with bacon, very good, for dessert we split a creme brûlée cheese cake, out of this world! We were too full to go back for dinner. For lunch the next day we had chicken caesar wrap at the Maritime Market, best we ever had. However this is about a 3
        mile walk, one way.
        In general a friendly, laid back place would come again.
        Good sailing,
        Bob

        We spent two nights tied up at the Bald Head Island Marina. Marina staff were excellent. We rode our bikes and also rented a golf cart for a few hours. The Marina restaurant was excellent. On the negative side, there can be a significant surge inside the marina . We were at C dock and danced around for two days. We did have a great time and will return .

        Bald Head Island is at the mouth of the Cape Fear River where it meets the Atlantic Ocean. When going south down the Cape Fear River it is located further southeast past the point where the ICW leaves the river at Southport. The inlet to the marina is on the west end of the island, or equivalently the east side of the river. It is well marked and framed by two short rock jetties. The current on the river runs fast and entrance into the inlet must take that into account. Additionally, the inlet channel shoals and is routinely dredged to maintain ferry access to the island. Transiting at mid to high tide is prudent.
        The marina has floating slips and T-heads and good space for transient boaters. There is one restaurant and a ship’s store in the marina plus restrooms and showers. Fuel and a pump out are available. Kayaks and golf carts can be rented to use on the island (there are no cars allowed).
        This marina is an excellent jump off point for boaters going offshore headed south. It’s only a short 30 mile trip to the Little River Inlet at Myrtle Beach.

        We think Baldhead is also a great stop, with a lighthouse within walking distance of the marina that you can go up in and have a great view. Most of the other North Carolina lighthouses are well off the path of loopers, so this is a good reason to stop at Baldhead as well.

        This was our destination for Saturday morning. We took our boat so we could come and go as we pleased. I reserved a golf cart ahead of time at http://www.riversideadventure.com/Carts/tabid/127/Default.aspx. This is the only transportation on the island as no cars are allowed. The roads are narrow paved passages. It is a wonderful way to enjoy the scenery.
        The lighthouse (Old Baldy) has a museum you can visit. Also a short walk and you will be at the local Post Office. Across the street is the most peaceful looking church you would ever want to attend.
        If you take the road on the beach side there will be parking places all along the way for a short walk to the beach. At the end of the island is the point a beautiful beach area to set up for the day. But be sure and stop by the market to pick up what you need for a picnic lunch.
        After a very enjoyable morning we headed back toward the marina. A beautiful place to dock or rent a transit slip for the night. This is definitely a place you will want to spend some time.
        The afternoon was spent heading out to one of the reefs to do a little fishing. Caught a couple of blue and sea trout, nothing to brag about.

        In the Cape Fear/Southport NC area you are just 3 miles from Southport to the harbor on Bald Head Island. It is well worth a visit if you have time. Good restaurants, historic village, beautiful homes, and wide open beaches. You can stay overnight at the marina there.

        We stayed at the Bald Head Island Marina last December. We hadn’t planned to, but we were chased in by 12ft-18ft seas (bigger as we entered the Cape Fear River due to an opposing ebb) and 35kt+ winds after rounding Cape Fear. After entering the river at dark and just puttering around until daylight, we kissed the ground quickly at the marina. The pros: Nice docks, decent showers/facilities, nice employees, two restaurants attached to the marina, protected basin, beautiful beaches and scenery within walking distance. The cons: Expensive, grocery and all other stores require expensive golf cart rental, everything is pretty expensive since it’s an “exclusive” island, wireless was NOT free. One other note – before we entered the entrance channel (somewhat narrow, and when there is a flood tide you’ll get SEVERAL knots of current through the channel) we called the marina to check depths (we draw 6′). They told us we would be fine. We got there, made our turn towards our slip and immediately grounded in soft mud with 5′ showing on the sounder. We pushed through the mud and were able to almost make it to a T-head, where we waited for high tide to tie up to it. Apparently, spring tides have a major effect on depth at the marina. The island IS beautiful and it was nice to visit there. By the way, they just built (are building?) the Deep Point Marina just up the river and were very excited about it. It’s supposed to be a lot less expensive with nicer facilities, and one of the former mayors of Southport will be the dockmaster (and he’s a VERY nice guy and proud of his town).

        The company is Zimmerman Marine and has a wide-spread reputation for being among the best. Someone told me if I ever needed repairs to go to Zimmerman Marine, which has five locations. Amazing that my accident happened right at a Zimmerman Marine base at Southport Marina, NC. Tell anyone that this is a very polished and professional company. They made a difficult situation much easier and it’s obvious that the company is trusted by the insurance industry.

I called SPM and they were quick to offer a courtesy dock for inspection. Then I called Zimmerman Marine, remembering they were on site. By the time we arrived there Steve, the Zimmerman tech was waiting for us on the dock. We quickly determined the raw pump had split, pumping sea water into the bilge overheating the exhaust port side. Steve went to check for a replacement part. There was not one available that day. So, on his on, Steve called around and found a good used part, drove way out of his way to get it, came back and installed it and we were on our way in about 3 hours. Steve saved our family weekend trip and was fantastic to work with. Great service is sometimes taken for granted. I did not want to miss this opportunity to give the staff at SPM and Steve from Zimmerman a big shout out THANK YOU! 5 star service and very reasonable price!

        As the Marina Manager at South Harbour Marina in Southport I also heartily endorse Hank @ Carolina Yacht Care. Our laundry is right at the end of the dock but we have also used Hank for his shuttle and other services. He is dependable, professional, and his extra customer service efforts certainly makes my marina look good too! He can be trusted to give my customers good value.

        Spent 4/30 to 5/6/13 at Southport Marina. This was our first visit and won’t be our last. We stayed several days longer than planned due to weather. Marina employees are great. The facilities are very good and kept clean. The marina is a short walk into town. Nice farmers market on Wednesday. Numerous restaurants and shops. Marina has very good outside help for any boat problems (Snyders Marine). We rented a car for 3 days and took ferry to Fort Fisher and the NC aquarium. Overall, a great stop-over.

        We stayed there about a week ago. It is a class A marina. The dock master and dock hand were very good at giving us directions and catching our lines. We don’t use shoreside facilities, so I can’t say anything about shower and bathrooms. However, the docks and grounds are very neat and clean. The marina is within walking distance of the main part of Southport and restaurants.
        I would rate it very highly and recommend it to others. It is also very easy to access, right off the ICW.

        This newly renovated marina is in the heart of downtown Southport. It is within walking distance of the commercial fishing harbor and many restaurants and stores. The entrance is directly off the ICW on the north shore just after passing the fishing harbor on the starboard side when headed south.
        Water depths need to be watched here. Transient boaters are usually docked on the face dock that forms a long T-head with the dock office in the center. Water depths are fine in that area, but elsewhere low tide causes some very shallow spots. Fuel is available and there is a small ships store.
        Southport is also a quaint southern town reminiscent of Beaufort, SC, and is well worth a visit. The marina is well maintained and conveniently located.

        This year, we stayed at the marina. The laundry room has two 30 minute washers and two 45 minute dryers. They are $1.75 each but they get the job done with no extra quarters.
        The marina has floating docks which are in excellent condition and the finger piers are long so you can go bow-in and have room to back out.
        When we landed at the gas dock, we met Captain Jeff who is the most nimble and well informed dock hand we have ever seen. He will take good care of you.
        The wifi works fine here (we were near the main building so I don’t know about the piers out in the 3rd world area) and has no “cyper-hoops” to jump through to use it.
        The town, which is a short walk from the marina, has many bar/restaurants and shops, mostly antiques. We liked the bar at the Cape Fear Restaurant, 101 West Bay Sreet. Say hi to Gary. The Walmart is about two miles from the marina.
        This is a truly, well maintained marina with many gregarious live-aboards and, in my opinion, worth the cost.
        Regrettably, the marina Tiki bar is closed but you can create your own tiki bar experience because the bar is still there and boaters hang out there even there is no bartender.

        As one who has lived in Southport for the past 38 years, and as the Harbor Host for this area, I think that it would be a loss if you did not stop and visit Southport. We have a beautiful little town, with oak tree lined streets, restaurants, shops, a maritime museum, pirate history, civil war history, great boating, golf, tennis, fishing, sailing, great marinas, and, most of all, great people. I will agree that my opinion may be a little biased however.
        In my response to you two days ago I failed to mention that there is some free dockage on a first come basis in the Old Yacht Basin just east of the Southport Marina. This free dockage is well explained in Skipper Bob’s. One of the choices is a fixed t-head that the City of Southport supplies in this basin, which is in front of our house. Just room for one boat, with 15 amp. power and water. You could run the generator for AC, but again, on first come basis.
        Our town is a little crowded this weekend. Southport is the host for North Carolina’s Fourth of July Celebration annually. On the weekend of the 4th we go from 2500 residents to approx. 40,000 residents and tourist for the 3 day event. The celebration concludes tomorrow, Monday, with a parade, fireworks, crafts, food, etc. You have already missed the sailboat regatta, which was yesterday.

        South Harbour Village Marina has one of the best Italian bistro’s [in town] I have ever visited. But it is not walking distance to town which is really no big loss. Southport Marina is closer to town within walking distance and is also a great place. There are a few good eateries in town. If you like golf and total protection from the busy ICW try St. James Plantation Marina just south of Southport proper. All are really nice, you can’t really go wrong.

        We stopped here on 5/1/10 and were somewhat dismayed at the cleanliness of the shower and laundry facilities. The facilities looked like they had not been cleaned in several days. They also looked like they had been abused, hopefully not by cruisers. We have stopped here before and things were pretty well maintained, but not this time.

        The marina boat population also looked reduced from out last visits. When asked about the numerous empty slips, we got the ole “economy” answer. We think otherwise. Hope we are wrong.

        We did have breakfast at PJ’s and it was great.

        Also, check out their maritime musuem.
        Don’t think there is a real great resturant around. We did eat at Loco Jo’s which is where it seems everyone gathers after work for a drink. Their fresh fish was well prepared, but the place is nothing fancy

        The marina was fine, but we also went to Fishy Fishy after reading the comment above, and if that was the only shrimp and grits I ever had in my life, I would never have them again. Shrimp was almost raw, sauce was so much not to my liking that I left half my dinner. It will be hard to convince either of us to eat out again for awhile.

        Cruising News: This is definitely a town to not by-pass. We’ve been in a slip in the marina for a few days. The last time we were here was at least 7 years ago and it was definitely nothing to write home about. The transformations are amazing. A great amount of creativity and detail went into the planning of the entire layout! We continue to exclaim to each other about how beautiful and inviting it is.
        Now for the restaurants! We live to eat, unfortunately—not eat to live! This morning we had breakfast at PJ’s, just across the street. The food and service were great. It’s a very popular place and there was a continual stream of patrons coming in for brunch. Last night we’d planned to go to the Provision Company but the wind died down and the mosquitos, the size of hummingbirds, were attacking in droves so we opted for inside seating at Fishy Fishy! Bill had Fish and Chips, I had the BEST Shrimp and Grits I’ve ever had, and we both had wine for under $30!!!
        We’ve ridden our bikes all over this town (which doesn’t take long) and there are so many cute shops, antique stores, cafes and bars–and a Super WalMart is a mere 2 miles up the main drag.

        Cruising News: Good News. The Ferries passing this marina and turning the face dock into a (not so) thrill ride all night long are moving to a new terminal. Within the next 30 days they will no longer operate from Indigo Plantation. The new terminal is up the Cape Fear River. This will make Southport Marina an even better place to stay.

        Came here late in the day low on fuel & hoping someone was still at the marina as most fuel docks close at 5:00 pm. To my delight these guys are open till 7:00! After fueling the dock master hinted that if I hadn’t had a good meal in a while to try the Italian restaurant on site. Their dockage rates are extremely fair at only $1.20 a foot & gave me a BoatUS discount on fuel & dockage. The restaurant was definitely what it was cracked up to be. Being solo I sat at the bar & enjoyed the banter from the locals that came through waiting for their tables. Ben the bartender made sure my glass was always full. I had the duck. Excellent! The Marina showers are hot & clean & I cant say enough about this place. 5 stars!

        I gunk hole as much as I can to keep costs down. With a big cold front, I pulled in for a couple nights at South Harbor. It was a record low and despite the challenges the cold weather brought they take care of business no matter the conditions. This is a good stop for 3 things- waiting on the weather window coming in, or heading out, from Cape Fear, and catching a football game at the Dead End bar & grill which is right at the dock and open 7 days/nights even off-season. The other advantage is they are directly on the AICW and not one meter off the route. A welcome oasis after all the inevitable current and traffic on the Cape Fear River.
        When you get off the river, try to stay on the outer transient dock – get your fuel right there and enjoy the best, sunny views.

        Dead End Saloon/Fish Factory Grill just completed a major outdoor deck re-modeling to make the dining more comfortable and very often features live music. The owner has operated waterfront restaurants in both Baltimore and Southport so she knows how to do it right!

        Have always loved this marina. It’s great if you have dogs it want a good walk as it’s near a terrific park – Dutchman Creek Park. The deli/market is all deli only selling gift items & luncheon meats & cheeses. Not really a market. The “new” restaurant “deadend saloon” was terrible. Just bar food mostly & not very good. My $10 salad (without meat) had a good amount of rotted lettuce. I told the waitress & she said, “oh.” No offer for a substitute or price reduction. My rail Margarita was $8.50 & hubby’s rail martini was warm & $7! Pricey drinks, mediocre food & fair service make this place a “do not return.”

        Due to the limited number of anchorages, we have spent the last few nights in marinas, at Oriental Marina (recommend) and last night in South Harbour Village Marina (recommend). Today, we decided to take a down day and do a bit of maintenance, laundry, grocery, etc. The only thing that keeps South HVM from rating five stars is the lack of a courtesy car. It cost me $28 in taxi fare to get to Wally World for groceries and to a replacement for the coffee pot that went bellyup this morning. More to come as we continue South.

        We came down topless in good weather from Morehead. The canvas shop doing our repairs is near South Harbour Village Marina so here we are. It is only 1.5 nm west of Southport by water but seven miles on unbikeable roads by land, with no courtesy car available. Another boat condo. A golf course and an airport are nearby, but there’s not much here for transients other than fuel, an Italian restaurant, and a bar/grill. The Italian was OK last night, we’ll try the pub tonight. Southport would have been more fun.

        We did . . . eat out the next evening further north at Joseph’s Italian Bistro. It is at South Harbor Village Marina and has not failed to serve up excellent, real Italian food since the day we ate there shortly after Hurricane Isabel when it first opened. This is no chain; it’s a “real” restaurant owned by a guy who truly knows how to cook.
        I love their linguini with white wine and garlic sauce with clams or frutti di mare. For meatball lovers, Joseph’s mom makes a mean meatball. It’s not only just like mama used to make– it’s a real Italian mama making it right now.
        Their desserts look great but the dinner portions are so generous, I don’t think we’ve ever partaken.

Nice restaurant, Deli, small store items, and art gallery store that sell items made by the St James Residents only. We found the art gallery to have some very beautiful items. The Restaurant had both indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the marina. Fuel dock with both gasoline and diesel. Laundry machines 1 dollar each. Hot showers/bathhouse, all on picturesque, landscaped grounds, walking sidewalks, tranquil setting.

        St. James Plantation “IS” a very nice stop. Great walking all over the roads next to the marina and viewing the beautiful homes. Four 18 hole Golf Courses right on the property.
        We stayed there in late Nov for a week then left for home for the month of Dec. Arrived back after New Years 2010 and headed for FL. Very secure place to leave a boat, and great monthly rates.

        I can’t believe I’ve never stopped here before. We heard about St. James from several friends and had to try it ourselves. All I can say is that this place is not to be missed by cruisers. At $1.05 per foot and a great restaurant, grocery store/deli, easy access fuel dock and very helpful staff …… it’s a steal !!!!! We will stay here for sure on our trip back north and hope to be able to enjoy the Tiki bar in warmer weather.

        Subject: St James Plantation Marina
        Cruising News: We really cannot recommend this place except in extremis. We called two days ahead for a reservation. We were told then they had no power cord adapters to lend. The young man on the phone told me what kind we’d need. We bought one at West in Southport. We provided our boat dimensions during the conversation and he repeated them. When we arrived, we discovered they do not have full floating docks, they having floating finger piers. This means one has to spring half the boat. Not a problem except the thumb cleats on the pilings are too high and on the wrong side. Then there is the dockhand who grabs your lines and starts securing the boat with out regard for instructions from the helm. Then there is the information you have just been put in a slip that has too little water for your draft at low tide…”but it’s soft mud…so it’ll be okay.” Then there is the discovery that the young man on the phone has told you the wrong kind of power cord adapter. Then when we arrived in the office the two men there carried on a desultory conversation for nearly two minutes without greeting us. When I pointed out the problem with the adapter, I got the three most hated words in the English language “sorry about that” followed by “I’m glad your not pissed about it.
        ” (When steam was coming from my ears.) When we were given the slip agreement to sign, I needed my legal counsel. Turns out it appears it’s not truly a marina. It seems to be a dockominium and some portion of your transient fees apparently go to the owner of the slip. Which may explain why we were shoehorned into an unsuitable slip when there were hundreds of feet of
        (unsold?) easily accesed deep water docks available. When we asked what they proposed we do for heat on the coldest night of the year so far, they suggested we run our genset in the slip. They said, “there’s nobody here to bother.” However we later discovered the boats both sides of us were occupied. Nice grounds, completely indifferent operations.

        As you mention it is a really nice stop, very reasonable for the area but not much of a provisioning stop unless you get a rental car.

        Excellent restaurant, I know, but I’m told shallow water at 3-1/2′ (?) at docks may be a problem for you and still no fuel available?

        What a wonderful weekend! Hooked up the boat early Friday morning and headed out to Oak Island, NC. The weather was great low 80’s and a nice breeze in the air. Once arriving we soon found our motel/marina.
        Always a little concerned about booking a place sight unseen but what a pleasant surprise.
        Blue Water Point is an older motel but very clean and well kept. The place offered us everything we needed. The boat landing and marina is there on site, so once unpacked in the room we were ready to unload the boat and park the boat in the marina. They even had a special parking area for us to keep the trailer.
        Our room was on the bottom floor and on the back side which was perfect as there is a sea wall that wraps around the motel offering an alternate fishing location right outside your door. They have benches and rod holders all along the wall. We enjoyed it so much we just spent a couple of hours setting out there relaxing after a long day.
        If you don’t own a boat but still want to get out on the water the “Princess” is charter boat that stays docked at the marina. She offers fishing trips and also evening cruises. The captain also manages the motel and a great person who is very knowledgeable of the area.
        Talking about knowledge just check out the locals at the marina’s “Fisherman’s Wharf” Add a couple of drinks and who knows how big the catch of the day really is?????
        Last but not least one of the top restaurants on the island is also on site. It opens at 5:00 and the crowds would gather around to wait to get in.
