Reviews for Pungo Ferry Marina - Closed
Marina being rebuilt, 2016-06-27
Captain: , Key Biscayne FL (3048)

Past there and saw heavy construction. Inner basin sea wall being rebuilt. Big no trespassing sign. So a new stopover spot is a possibility

Nothing there, 2016-04-09
Captain: , Annapolis (91)

Tied up there 2 years ago.Went by the other day and there is nothing left except the pilings from the old pier which I guess you could tie up to if needed.

4 a.m. wake up call, 2015-11-01
Captain: , Philadelphia (331)

stopped here on about June 1, 2015, paid no attention to the no trespassing signs, ended up being awakened by a Virginia Beach cop about 4 in the morning. papers were in order. told not to dock here and to leave at first light. seems the pirate ship was bad news for what was a nice thing

Old unused Dock, 2015-10-20
Captain: , New York (10)

Tied up overnight to an old unused dock with 8' of water, right on the ICW.

pirate ship gone and its free, 2015-08-07
Captain: , Olcott, NY (2536)

We found this abandon dock after trying to anchor on the other side of the bridge, too no avail.
At least two boats can be accomodated here but signs did indicate that you were not allowed to trespass.
Once we saw the sign, we prepared to leave, but a local guy, Jeff, came along and told us not to worry. No one enforces the sign and we were welcome to tie up for the night.
It is a rough dock so be prepared with good fendering and secure lines as tows pass by in the night, sucking the water out from under you!
By and by, if someone does come along and tells you to move,(which Jeff says will never happen) there are few alternative places to go, so have an alternative plan ready, just in case.

Beware of Pirates, 2014-11-08
Captain: , Cobb Island, Potomac River, USA (363)

Did not stop here because we were anxious to get under the nearby bridge while the water was low, but it was expected that we would moor here if the bridge were impassable. That turned out to not be much of an option, though, since it seems that a rather derelict pirate ship has taken up residence in the middle of the dock that could otherwise accomodate two moderately large vessels.

Good stop but entrance is shallow, 2013-05-30
Captain: , Pfungen, Switzerland (310)

Good stop at the gas dock OUTSIDE the little bay.
Could not enter the bay as depth is rapidly lowering to 5.5 foot while entering the channel middle.

The closed Pungo marina dock is just fine, 2012-10-24
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (160)

Nice over night spot, no services , a good alternative to anchoring out. Water depth 8' at dock,straight forward approach. One boat passed in the night , little wake as the highway bridge is right there.
For what we wanted, an ideal spot. Left at 6.45am in semi darkness, easy departure, pushed nose into north bound mild current, and motored out. Not a 5 star due to lack of services.

Free place for overnight, 2012-10-02
Captain: , Bear DE (694)

Stayed here for one night with 2 other boats. You can't beat free!!! Stayed at the old main dock (fuel dock in front of the building) - in 7ft of water.

Pungo marina, 2012-04-11
Captain: , City Island New York (600)

The marina is still closed, but 4 to 5 feet at the dock and very serviceable for a quick overnighter very quiet and a great view, neither the current or the tide are very noticeable.

Free tie-up, 2012-04-10
Captain: , Everett, WA (939)

This spot seems well-used, but I would hang out on the boat as there are No Trespassing signs nearby saying keep off the beach. At least 8 ft deep when we pulled in.

Pungo Ferry Marina (April 2011), 2011-04-26
Captain: , Richmond VA (281)

This is a closed and abandoned marina. Some of the parking lot was under water as Mother Nature seems to be taking back her land quickly. Even with its current condition it still has a mooring wall that can accommodate up to 2 boats over 40 feet or 3 smaller boats. No power or services of any kind, basically your just tided to a fixed pier.
