Reviews for Pirates Cove Marina
Poor Marina Management, 2014-10-27
Captain: , Norfolk, VA (10)

On a transient visit, I was assigned a slip that was narrower than my 23' beam. When I told the dockmaster/owner that the slip appeared too narrow, she insisted that it was wide enough. When I tried to back the boat into the slip and the stern got wedged between the pilings. In addition, there was a bolt sticking out of one of the pilings that put a 3" ding ($400) in my stern. The dockboy acknowledged that the slip was too small for my boat. The owner refused to compensate or credit me anything for the ding. I will never return to Pirate's Cove Mariina.



Great Thanksgiving stop, 2013-11-25
Captain: , Tracys Landing, Maryland (350)

We stayed here last November and rented one of the condos for Thanksgiving. It was offseason, and we were the only sailboat in the marina, but the staff treated us very nicely. They have a courtesy van that we used on several occassions to stock up on all our Thanksgiving treats.

We like the area. Manteo is a quaint little town with lots of things to see. We were not impressed with the staff at Pirates Cove Marine. They were the least helpfull of all the marinas that we stayed at. They put us in a slip backed up to the highway. There was lots of noise and dust from the highway.



Roanoke Island is a Jewel, 2012-07-20
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (555)

What an interesting and charming island with many amenities. The marina has a courtesy car and a very friendly staff. Although it is a sport fishing mecca, the owners Tammy and Jim are seasoned cruisers and full of local knowledge. We attended the outdoor theatre in Manteo and saw the play "The Lost Colony", which is the history of the island. This is a must if you come here. The commercial fishing and boat building industry is also very interesting. All types of boating services are located nearby, such as Just Right Marine which carries Northern Lights products and a CAT store, etc. The Pirates Cove Marina Ships Store carries handcrafted jewelry, many unique nautical items for gift and home and great T-Shirts. Nags Head and the beaches are just across the bridge.



Sport Fishers Haven, 2012-04-04
Captain: , Littleton, NC (416)

Last place to get good fuel if your heading west in Albermarle sound. Contact on vhf 78. Decent restuarant good fuel prices. No real ship store. Not a good cruisers hangout all finger docks.



Pirates Cove Marina, 2011-02-14
Captain: , Beaufort, NC (531)

We stopped in for diesel fuel in December 2010. Entry is straight forward just North of the bridge. The fuel dock is all the way in and access to it is narrow. The place is filled with sport fishing boats and you are surrounded by a lot of very expensive fiberglass. Be extremely careful when turning around on a windy day.
