Whether you want to revisit the past, satisfy your curiosities, discover the arts or explore your true nature, you can do it from the heart of the Inner Banks – Washington, North Carolina. Washington City Docks, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, has proven to be well worth the journey up the Pamlico River, as John Clark attests below.
Great little marina off the beaten path. Location is right in the downtown of Washington NC. For a small town there is a lot of activity at the waterfront, early morning walkers, a picnic lunch crowd, and evening family strollers. Marina/waterfront park staff are all nice and helpful.
We sailed a boat with 66ft mast and 6.5ft draft without issue coming in from the Atlantic at Morehead City and then taking the Core Creek stretch of the ICW. Hit bridges at low tide and you are good.
