Delivers fine wine to your boat, often in just a few hours but always the same day. Great service, outstanding selection and range, very reasonable pricing. Very nice art gallery as well.


Reviews for Indigo Plantation Marina
Nice stop for a month, 2015-11-28
Captain: , New Bern, NC (50)

Great on all counts with only one exception, long walk to anything! They are planning on getting some loaner bikes in the future.

5% OFF For Boat US, 2015-10-27
Captain: , East Falmouth, MA (1523)

Very nice facility with free wifi, washer/dryer, showers and clubhouse. If you need help docking you need to call about 15 minutes before arrival as it takes the help that long to get there. If you want quiet, this is the place. The only negative is that it is very far from town and shopping. We have friends who live in the area so it wasn't an issue for us and the price was right. We were offered a ride by some very friendly sailors who make this their home port and live aboard. They ran out to help us tie up as soon as they saw or heard uc coming. Best place to stay IF you don't need to restock or dine out.

If you are looking to be downtown this isn't the stop for you, but the staff and facilities at Indigo are as reasonably priced as anything you will find on the water. Great docks and great clubhouse, gated parking and nice bbq facilities. We've kept our boat there for over a year and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

Not exactly $1.10/ft (correction it is), 2014-11-15
Captain: , Erie, PA (577)

The only thing we might add to what has already been said is that the minimum dockage fee is $49 + electric.

Still a good price for some very nice docks with free laundry.

A few days after we left the manager called to tell us they over charged us by $5.50 as they should have charged by the boat length and not the dock length they put us in. We told them not to worry about it but they insisted on refunding our charge card and needed the card number. Nice people.

clean and Priced Well, 2014-11-13
Captain: , Kent Island, MD (392)

We stopped in Southport to have Zimmerman's correct a fuel fill and vent problem. We opted to stay here for the price and the pay for two nights, third night free deal. Zimmerman's did the work, we saved money, and although the marina is remote, we used Hank Pomeranz from Carolina Yacht Care to shuttle us to a really great supermarket-Lowes. We were happy visitors

A little used gem, 2014-11-02
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (476)

We were here for four nights, waiting out a weather system and also waiting to be hauled Monday morning. The place is very clean, very secure, very hospitable. Free laundry, lovely boaters' lounge, beautiful setting. We took advantage of a three day weekend car rental with Enterprise for $50 and really enjoyed the town. Southport is delightful. Make sure you take the golf cart tour, and hit the Maritime Museum. Without transportation the town is pretty much out of reach of the marina.
Do make sure when you call ahead (by phone) that you specify Indigo Plantation Marina, as the Management company handles several marinas and you may wander around looking for D-12 when you're really supposed to be in B-6.
We loved the place. We'll be back!

Nice quite marina, 2013-10-13
Captain: , Corpus Christi,Tx (1569)

Laundry and restrooms are clean. Not close to town, but liveaboard loaned us a car to go to Super Walmart which is about 2 miles away. Dockmaster is not onsite, but will meet you when you arrive if you call ahead. Staff was friendly. Very peasefull place which we enjoy. We will be back.

Very clean and safe marina, 2012-10-07
Captain: , Bear DE (694)

Stayed here for one night. Nobody around to help with docking - but we do it ourselfs anywhy. Clean Shower and free Laundry. If you arrive after 2pm - go to the main building and give your Credit card info to the Security guard on duty - they take care of the rest. Would stay here anytime again!

Quiet Stop, 2012-05-29
Captain: , Wilmington DE (782)

We stopped in for three days to wait out TS Beryl. The marina is opreated by the Bald Head Island Marina as is Deep Point off the Cape Fear. No marina people were here to help tie in, but a dock neighbor and several friends did assist. In our case, we will call to arrange payment by phone. Clean rest rooms and free washer/dryer.

Nice Stopover but not close to services, 2012-04-25
Captain: , St. Louis, MO (1696)

We stayed three nights to wait out a cold front. Very well protected from winds except southerlies. Wakes from channel did get in but they would only effect the slips on the west side which are directly down the entrance cut. But very quiet with nice facilites. Free washer dryer. But know that it is not close to anything. You could walk to town but it would be a hike. However, that being said 3 different people offered to loan us their car for shopping. The only grocery store around is a Walmart Supercenter and that is NOT in walking distance. Southport is a nice town, lively and hospitable. Does have fuel and pump out but maneuvering may be tight for some. Was for us.

Storm Shelter, 2011-11-29
Captain: , St. Augustine, Fl (30)

Great service by Jessie and quite a personable and knowledgable character...Clean and quiet great price..good storm shelter...Great facitlities dont mind the walk to town.....

Indigo Plantation Marina, 2011-10-21
Captain: , Harrison Twp, MI (350)

Refreshingly quiet and clean. Mostly 50 amp electric service only at the newer bigger slips, you will need a splitter if you want 30 amp service at anything but the smaller inner finger docks. Service is lean, you actually have to call dockmaster at another marina to register. No one to help you dock during off season, you'll need to help yourself. Facilities are new and clean... very nice. Price is very reasonable. Not quite close walking distance to restaurants or stores, but well within reach if your dinghy has a motor. I would definitely return considering the cleanliness and low cost... a bargain!

No longer Bald Head Island Ferry, 2011-06-12
