Reviews for Beaufort Dinghy Dock
New and nice, 2015-11-24

plenty of room on the dinghy dock in October; I can see this as being very packed in high season. Floating docks; appear new.

The NPS ferries now on there own dock. The town dinghy dock is available. Nice floating dock with room for about 12, with most spaces taken by locals. There is a small boat (sail dinghy, kayak) launch area on the west side where you can beach if the dock is to crowded.

As of yesterday a new floating dinghy dock on both side are complete along with a two new walk ramps. Looks good. 5 min. walk to shops and resturants.

Right across from town hall building. Fine dinghy dock but a bit of a step from the floating dock to the fixed dock. Serves its purpose and we appreciate it. Beaufort is a fun town.



Beaufort Dinghy Dock Review, 2012-05-02
Captain: , Oriental, NC (130)

We just spent a week in Beaufort's anchorage and had a great time. (Watch the tidal currents).
We dinghy'd our bikes to the dinghy dock to explore the town. The dinghy dock is very small. If it would be a lot bigger, it would be much more useful. There are some people living on boats that appear to be derelicts. The dinghy dock had a lot of beat up dinghys from those boats, so finding a spot took some effort at times.

Whatever you do, don't dock your dinghy at the large docks intended for bigger vessels. We did that one night for a couple hours because those docks were quite empty. Apparently the dockmaster was upset. He hunted us down in a restaurant to give us a piece of his mind. Oh well, I guess everyone has their peeves.
I only gave it three stars since it is very undersized.
