Docks & Anchorages
Docks at the following locations may be used for loading and unloading passengers and gear.
Boats may not moor (tie up) to these docks for longer than it takes to load/unload. For long stays, boats must anchor away from the dock and out of the way of other boats.
There are a number of areas that provide easy access to the soundside beaches or a place to stay overnight on your boat. Where you drop your anchor will depend on the draft (depth) of your boat.
Vessels may anchor for a total of 14 days in water within the boundaries of Cape Lookout National Seashore.
