Small marina with the most helpful and friendly staff, they even enjoyed hanging out with us rain-drenched boaters for evening drinks and comradery.
Fun décor in the bathrooms and fuel on site directly to your boat. just 2 blocks or less to hardware store and restaurants.
Easy maneuvering in and out, bulkhead docking, no slips to back into, with no noticeable tidal currents.

Belhaven Marina is a good marina, and they seem to be trying real hard to please, but they have a couple of things that need some attention to get it to 5 stars. We'll get to that shortly. First the good stuff:
The dock hands were very helpful getting us tied up in a strong westerly wind on the east side of the dock so that is a big plus.
Beer ($3.00) and wine in the marina office. Hat's off to whoever thought of that!
Bathrooms have some interesting decor, and are functional and clean.
Town is close by. A good hardware store, a couple of galleries, and it looks like they are also building a couple more storefronts out of one of the buildings. The whole town in one block! Rest of town is houses which mostly are nice turn of the century structures.
Two restaurants: Spoon River, which tries too hard to be "upscale". Puts out a good presentation, and the food is good, but they are expensive for what it is. Fish Hooks is home cooked meal, basic fare at a reasonable price. Ice cream store across the street is also a winner.
Now the downside: Laundry is free, but no AC in that room. It wasn't real hot when we were there, but I can't imagine being in that room on a hot summer day. And they left a gallon of bug spray sitting in the laundry tub. Bad sign!!
Dock is old and not level. It seems sturdy enough, except for the last section by the yard, but you can tell it's been there a while. Could use some new wood and leveling.
Bugs! The power pedestals are on the land side of the dock, so they run the power cable under a hinged dock board. Dirt and wet rotted boards underneath breed bugs. Ants used the power cable as a bridge to the boat and we spent most of the day getting rid of the little critters. That's a big downer. Not sure how to get around this, but last thing a boater needs is bugs on the boat. My solution was to let part of the power cord hang in the water to interrupt the bridge. That and some ant bait from the hardware store seemed to have done the trick.
All in all, in a pinch I'd go there again. But given a choice, I'd choose another marina.

This is a fantastic Marina!!! Gregg the owner is hands down the nicest, most helpful guy we have came across on the ICW. The marina has a quaint small town vibe with everything you could want, and if they don't have Gregg will help you find it! Town is just across the street and all the local shops have a such great customer service! Owner at Marker 32 boutique offered to post our letters because there was no mailbox in the area. The shop next door is Nifty Picks and Dilly Jeans has great repurposed Levi shorts and jeans! Such a cool concept and she was awesome to my bored husband, offering him a cold beer while I was shopping!!! The coolest restaurant, by far is the farm to table Spoon River! Do not miss eating here! Eclectic interior, excellent wait staff and delicious cocktails, food and desserts!!! As my husband's grandpa used to say "mark the curb" cause you need to remember to come back to this place

Belhaven is known as the birthplace of the ICW and the Belhaven Marina is a fine example of customer service. Gregg met us on approach, safely docked us, and was generally extremely helpful. We had been to Belhaven a few years ago, but this is our dis stay here. Would definitely stay again.

Free laundry and soap. Comfortable seating areas in the shade. Lawn games. Couldn't think of one suggestion to put in the several containers scattered around. Town is cute, with 1 very nice (Spoon River), 1 home cooking restaurant (Fish Hooks) that had good food too. Several clothing and gift shops. Plans underway to renovate several other store fronts.

One long fixed dock, boats tie along both sides. Rustic, but nice.
No pump-out, (The town dock, next door, has a pump-out station.)
Very slow WiFi
Decent showers and toilet facilities. Free Laundry.
The dockmaster, Greg, was very helpful and even gave us a ride to the store.

Belhaven Marina has just about everything you could ask for; In-slip fueling; easy walking distance to a good old-fashioned hardware store with everything you might need, or just up the street for incredible southern farm-to-table cuisine; friendly people; towing and near-by repair services readily available. Most importantly -- Dockmaster Greg is there to make everyone from guests to crew welcome with prompt personal service. He'll even make your dinner reservations! It's a small local marina, but they could set the standard for many larger operations! Be sure to call ahead.
Another great stay. Thanks again, Greg.

La Mistinguette Sail 47 ft 5.5 ft

Basic marina, really nice service with the omni-present Greg (harbormaster) to help you. About as "walk-to-everything" as you can get in Belhaven NC. A couple of really good restaurants and a pub within a 200 yard walk of the harbor. Fueling is "in-slip" - which reduces the need for maneuvering. Pump outs are at the city docks just west - and require a $5 token from the Ace Hardware in town.

Service was really super - we had several odd questions and specific things we needed to do, and the folks at BHM really stepped up to assist. Free laundry, clean toilets and showers. And location - you just can't beat that!

Town is within walking distance with several restaurants. Construction of a Seawell on the adjacent property was my only complaint. It was loud during daylight hourrs and lots of dust.

Asked dock hand what time they opened and his response was: "What time do you need me here." Doesn't get anymore customer service than that! Got us out and walked over to the pump out station the next morning to help us get going. Will stay here again for sure.

The Belhaven marina is a small town marina with a whole lotta charm. The grounds are excellent in terms of comfort and Greg and Mic made every attempt to accommodate our every need. There was plenty of water at the dock, which are fixed but with large balls on a long wall that ensure your boat will not be damaged. There is a town park next door, which last night had a two hour jazz concert followed by Mike the Dockmaster putting on his own open mic concert which was great. There are walkable restaurants and historic homes that can be explored. Would we come here again on our next trip through t- he answer is definitely yes. We are a 47 foot 70,000 pound Trawler and the marina was easy and easy out with not much current and or tide to contend with.

We initially thought we would stay one night but decided to stay for the entire weekend.

There is also another Marina very close - River Forest that looks quite accommodating too.

The Belhaven Marina is a great little marina with a lot of southern charm. The attention to detail on the grounds he is very good and the staff is very accommodating Dockmaster Greg and Mick both went out of your way to meet our every need. The docs are fixed but with large fender balls for a cushioned berth. The town of Belhaven is just a few steps away with several good restaurants and meny historic homes. The dock are off the river and a fixed long-wall with plenty of depth and large fender balls along the long wall assure your boat will be in a secure birth. There was plenty of depth at the dock and power and water were available. We had initially thought we would just stay one night we decide to stay the entire weekend. The town park next-door provided a free jazz concert Saturday night and Mike from the marina played an open mic session himself which was very nice even if it was sparsely attended. There are several great restaurants available including spoon River and a little café that serves a great breakfast. If you're looking for a good place to stop Belhaven is certainly a good option and if they would happen to be full River Forest marina also a good option just a few hundred feet further from the downtown.

Gregg is the best! Seemed like he was always there to lend a hand (and sneak a treat to the doggo).

As others have said, its all bulkhead tie but the marina provides ample ball fenders. If its blowing hard from the southeast through southwest, you're going to be rocked unless you can get moved 'back' along the wall a bit.

Clean and uniquely decorated restrooms, gas grills, small putting green and loads of 'common areas' to socialize all help to make this a great stop.

Great service from staff with help getting in and out,

They had us right on the end of the bulkhead wall, wave slap from a SW wind made a miserable night. Moving us 10' in (the bulkhead was empty) would have made all the difference.

Bring big fenders for the bulkhead tieup.
