    MM 200.9 Town Creek Marina

    Views of marina and chart

    Town Creek is the backside of Beaufort - the town faces on Taylor Creek. When we anchored in Beaufort (inset) we anchored in past this marina, and when we have considered going to a marina in Beaufort, this is the marina we would go to. It looks like they have a restaurant right there, and they give a Boat US discount.

    They have a courtesy car for the mile required to go to a market. The only question I have is whether we could get a courtesy car to the museum or if we would have to call a taxi.

    Equipment: TRANSIT SLIP RATES Slips: Face dock:
    4/1 - 11/30 4/1 - 11/30
    Daily per foot: $1.30 $1.50
    Weekly per foot: $6.25 $7.00
    Monthly per foot: $17.50 $19.25
    Discount 25% off BoatUS

    Here are a few of our services that we have to offer our customers:
    Floating docks - 12' water
    Transient dockage
    30/50 amp power hookup
    Easy docking with no current
    Shower and laundry facilities
    Gas and Diesel / Pump out station
    Courtesy car
    Dry Stack Storage
    Ship store for your general needs
    Fine dining at the Sandbar

    MM 202.3 Anchorage in Town Creek

    by grandmaR Updated Jan 28, 2004

    Chart with anchorage

    We anchored here in 2000 to the east of the marina in 6+ feet of water. There is a shoal to be avoided on the red side (south) all the way in to the anchorage, but there is plenty of room between the three black and white markers (A, B, and C) for anchoring, although there are permanent moorings there (including a fish bait shack on a raft when we were there) which you have to avoid. There is excellent shelter from all winds.

    Anchoring in Taylor Creek will be more difficult as there are many more boats and there are strong currents and it is exposed to wind and wake. Two anchors are recommended.

    Equipment: If you want to you can dinghy around under the bridge to the dinghy dock in Taylor Creek. The bascule bridge opens every half hour from 6 a.m. to 10 pm. but it has restricted hours at rush hour and is closed 7:30 to 8:30 am and 4:30 to 5:30 pm.
