In addition to the state wildlife ramp which is located up-river from the marina, the town of New Bern has a small ramp at Union Point Park south of the Comfort Suites. However, this is a small ramp with no room to tie a dinghy.

At the south end of the park, at the confluence of the Neuse and Trent rivers, the city has several fixed piers avaialble for public use. These piers are adjacent to the Cunningham Bridge. Stores and services in downtown New Bern are only 3 blocks from the piers.

Passing under the Cunningham Bridge to the Trent River, Outback Steakhouse has a dinghy dock on the outside pier of the Bridgepointe Marina.

Fixed piers at Union Point Park a short distance down river, adjacent to the Cunningham Bridge across the the Trent River.

Reviews for Bridgeton Harbor Marina
Bridgeton Harbor Marina, 2016-01-23
Captain: , New Bern NC (10)

Very friendly to both transients and liva-a-boards. VERY best buy for the money for long term slip. Quiet and relatively clean. Not a yacht club atmosphere thank goodness. Nice functional boat owner's lounge and showers with laundry facilities.

Hidden Benefits, 2014-06-12
Captain: , Bridgeton, NC (10)

Although onsite facilities are somewhat sparse, the marina boasts wide, easy access slips, great showers and free washers/dryers. The board community is friendly, the recently tamed wifi now works fine and the rates are very good. The marina is dog friendly and welcomes live-aboards and can accomodate vessels up to 120'. The access to the mile wide Neuse River is immediate (no bridge in the way) The small town of Bridgeton has 2 sail shops, a nautical consignment shop, 2 boatyards with haul out facilities and two full marinas. Anything not within walking distance is easily found just across the bridge in New Bern. Quiet and accessible.

I like it there., 2013-11-08
Captain: , New Bern NC (11)

Have had my 30 footer there for nearly 2 years now. Large floating docks are great. Dock Master Tom treats the place as HIS BABY in spite of changes in ownership. He has braved high winds to go out and remove my roller furling jib that had let itself out. It was pretty well shredded but he saved what he could. It's just good service. Nice folks around there. Don't let the railroad trestle worry you. Boat is right next to it and it is a very slow train and is very quiet. It is still very weird to look out the porthole and see a train 40 feet away That is just one dock though and the rest probably don't even notice it i there. I worried about mosquitos at first, but there is usually just a gentle breeze that seems to blow them somewhere else. The breakwall and the four rows of docks settles any kind of chop by the time it gets inside. I like it a lot

First class marina, 2013-08-27
Captain: , Sanford, Fl. (887)

We stayed here a week and found this marina was built as a 1st class facility. It has really wide fairways, long wide finger piers, wide floating docks and I think all the slips are 20' wide. Excellent power and utilities. Even though the wind kicked up really good while we were there it was calm inside the marina. It has a friendly live-aboard community. The lounge/laundry/shower building is very nice with really large shower/bath facilities. New Bern is a quick dink ride across the river and well worth the trip. Easy town to walk around. Be sure to check out all the bear statues.

popular with pet owners, 2013-04-01
Captain: , New Orleans (651)

Pets are very welcome on the grassy grounds, clubhouse, showers, tv room, etc. Absent are leash laws and pet clean up rules. Toilets/showers are mostly operational and mostly maintained by the cruisers. Dumpsters are available for trash disposal. Friendly cruiser community. Good common area to work on boat projects.

Great place!, 2013-01-12
Captain: , Pasadena, MD (10)

Great place!

Up side... People are freindly. Cruisers and liveaboards are welcome and made to feel at home. They have a nice club house with 6 bath rooms / showers and a comunity lounge with computer and TV. Good laundry facilities. Nice shop area for doing small projects. 4 resturants within walking distance but nothing fancy.

Down side... No pump out, no fuel.

Frequent stop for us, 2012-10-21
Captain: , Richardson, TX (552)

We have been been coming to BHM for over 2 years. We always stop in here on our way North or South. It's relaxing and quiet and the people are friendly, notably the dockmaster Tom. You do need a car or access to a ride if you need groceries as the closest store is a Food Lion about 3 mls away. Restaurant choices are limited to "Roy's", a home cooking place across the street where you can get breakfast which is ok, George's Pizza (good) - or Hardee's New Bern is a 15 min. drive across the Neuse River and has multiple great eating choices. (MJ's, Morgan's Grill, Chelsea's are good).The marina has 5 bathrooms which are individual and large, each with a shower, sink and toilet. They are not always spotless but since there is only 1 person (the dockmaster) working the whole marina it's hard to expect more. Nice lounge with flat screen TV, library to trade books and a computer for boater's use. We have witnessed some of the most beautiful sunsets on this side of the river too! Kirland's Antique Mall is across the street as is Hurricane Jack's marine consignment store. We always stay a few weeks and enjoy our stays in Bridgeton.

Great Community, 2012-04-24
Captain: , New Bern, NC (466)

We had to leave our berth at the marina in New Bern where we were staying because of repairs needed from last year%u2019s storm damage. We were told that those repairs would only take a couple of months and we would have first choice to come back, but we only had two weeks to move out. I looked at some of the local possibilities, considering price, driving distance to get there, etc. We settled on Bridgeton Harbor Marina mostly for price and drive distance, however we were pleasantly surprised at how nice the facilities were, but most of all at the warm welcome we received from the boating community. The showers, laundry (free), captain%u2019s lounge, and marina office are top notch. The docks are very wide, even the finger piers are wide enough that they don%u2019t rock when you step on them. There is plenty of parking. No fuel or pump out at this time, however they are working at getting the pump out system up and running again (storm damage). Within walking distance are a Marine Consignment store (Hurricane Jack%u2019s), post office, family style restaurant, gas station, a boat yard, and other odds and ends. The super market is a short drive away as is the wonderful little town of New Bern just across the Neuse River. It costs us about $30 more a month then where we were at, however the friendly community just might be worth it. We will see.

Very Nice Floating Docks, 2011-10-14
Captain: , Pentwater, MI (415)

Pulled in here after the Cunningham Bridge (which you need to pass through to access to downtown New Bern marinas) announced it would not open due to mechanical difficulty.

Tom, the dockmaster, was extremely helpful and very gracious.

Lounge, washers and restrooms are very nice.

There is little to no dining in the immediate area. Everything is in New Bern proper, which is only accessible by a car or taxi.

More than just another marina!., 2011-02-04
Captain: , Charleston SC (805)

Wide ,safe floating docks offer protected panoramic vistas of the beautiful Neuse River.
Shore side facilities include a club house with wide screen TV, spacous tiled shower rooms and cooking facilities. Modern washer dryers are also in the club house and are offered free to marina tenants.
Open deck with barbecue facilities.tables and comfortable chairs for a docksde cook out. A coutesy car is available for the asking and work shop facilies can be made availble by arrangement with the Dock Master.
TV connections at each dock in addition to water and a reliable 110V outlets ensure no brown outs!. Note, electric here is approximately half the cost per KW than at other marinas located closer to the city of New Bern.
A pizza store is close by as is a family style restaurant in addition there is a fully stocked Food Lion super market and drug store within 5 minutes drive. Airline connection are at the near by New Bern Airport .
A marina is so much more than wood and concrete. The Dock Master Thomas Wynn, a experienced seaman who has recently concluded a long and varied career in boat building, can offer,when asked, solutions to most boat maintence and repair problems. Thomm is more than a Dock Masteras he doubles as ;mine host; who welcomes visiting yachts and goes way beyond to satisfy the needs of captains and crew.
We came for a month but will stay for two as we could not be more delighted with the Bridgeton Harbor Marina, its a friendly place to be docked at!.

Sleeper with great value, 2010-10-13
Captain: , Kingsport, TN (470)

If you want a quiet marina, with a great view, and reasonable priceing, this is it. I call this whole area, little Chesapeake. (without the crowded weekends). You do have to go to New Bern for good reastraunts, but it is a short dingy ride, and well worth the trip. Try Morgans, or Cpt. Rattys.

New Marina with state of the art piers, electric, etc., 2009-10-18
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (495)

This marina is less than a year old and right across the River from New Bern. It is very quiet, has 4 new bath/ shower rooms, new laundry facility and Captains lounge with big screen TV. Can easily handle yachts in excess of 150 feet. Power options include 30, 50 and 100 amp service. Piers are floating and wide. Tom, the dock master and his crew are friendly and very accomodating. I highly recommend this facility.
