Boating in Elizabeth City, NC!

Boaters sail from around the world to enjoy our 'Harbor of Hospitality' located in Mariners' Wharf on the Pasquotank River.  Many travel the Intracoastal Waterway and participate in the Albemarle Loop to experience the adventures of the Albemarle Sound.  For our visiting boaters, we have compiled a list of marinas, boat services and lock schedules.  Our 'Harbor of Hospitality' sits on the edge of Downtown Elizabeth City which puts you at the epicenter of fabulous local restaurants, boutique shops, art galleries and the Museum of the Albemarle, all within walking distance.  The Boater's Map will help you find your way to the places and things that are most requested by our boaters.
