“Excellent Marina, Awesome People!!!”
Review of Anchorage Marina

Anchorage Marina
Ranked #14 of 30 things to do in Ocracoke

Reviewed 18 August 2013

So, the family is ready to do a half day rental and gunkhole around Pamlico Sound, pay tribute to Teach's Hole (where Blackbeard literally lost his head) and visit desolate Portsmouth Island. We look at the radar and the storm that we thought was moving east decided to head right for us. The chart was red and yellow all around. I thought we would be on the hook for a bunch of bucks for telling the marina that we weren't going to take the boat after all. They were extremely professional and we all sat around and talked about prudence and how some people would still wanted to go out, totally clueless of being in a shallow sound with a long fetch in a storm. Mike, the harbormaster/ manager was very cool as was the staff of Restless Native Boat Rentals and Stevie of the fishing fleet. We will definitely come back here and will rent a boat for several days, as I feel comfortable with the professionalism and knowledge of the staff.

As a female, I have not always found dock masters to be very friendly or cordial. This is not true of the dock master and his staff at the Anchorage Marina. I was recently in charge of coordinating a trip to Ocracoke for our yacht club. Bill Gilbert and his staff at the marina were extremely easy to work with. They return phone calls and emails speedily and respond to queries thoroughly.

During our visit, they kept our boats together on a single dock, brought over a gas grill from home for a cookout the group held while we were there, arranged a charter fishing expedition, dealt professionally with an accident that occurred to one of our boats when it was hit by another boat in a hit-and-run incident, and assisted with docking on our arrival and departure in a friendly, expert manner.

We wish Ocracoke were not so far for us to come or we would return every year.

We sat outside at the bar and listened to music and had a few beers in a great outdoor atmosphere. Music at 2:00 in the afternoon was a pleasant surprise. Beer prices were reasonable. Boats come in at 4:00 and unload their catch from the day. Make this a must stop if you're on the island.

Room on the 3rd floor was very nice with a 'picture perfect' view of the harbor. Very helpful staff with local recommendations. Would definitely stay again on next outer banks trip.

We stayed at the Anchorage Inn for three days and two nights. It was a perfect location for exploring the village of Ocracoke by foot and golf cart. Golf carts were available directly across from the Inn. We explored the village by golf cart, and then walked for the rest of our visit. The inn was clean, and the proprietor was friendly and efficient. We discovered a special offer on their website, and received a great rate when we mentioned it as we made the reservations. A repeat visit is definitely in our future.
