A marina that is included in the Albemarle Loop but not listed in our North Carolina Marina Directory is Hertford Bay Marina on the Perquimans River off western Albemarle Sound. Below are praise by Henry Zalegowski and the marina’s description sent to us by Town Manager Brandon Shoaf. Access to the new free town dock is limited to vessels of less than 33ft air draft.
We stopped Hertford North Carolina yesterday, everything was close by, the bridge tender was the politest bridgetender I had ever talked to. The docks were in very good shape better than most marinas Electric Power and Water, definitely a stop you have to make going on the icw.
