April 16, 2022, This Marina is further down on the river walk of Wilmington. Great access to visit the city of Wilmington. Under construction so not all is done. Portable trailer for washrooms still here. Talked to project engineer said dredging is not completed yet so local knowledge is needed to avoid shallow spots. A decent number of boats are here but it is not ready for showtime yet. Transit rate is $2.5' daily and monthly with six-month contract is $20'. Talked to some boaters here and said airport is on a short ride away. When completed will be nice but Showers and restroom lower the rating for now.

We came in to Port city marina thinking we'd stay three days but after we were here and realized the amenities as well as the location we decided to stay for seven days. Taylor the Dockmaster and Tanner the assistant Dockmaster have bent over backwards to make our experience great. If we were ever in this area again we would certainly stop here at the Port City Marina, Wilmington, North Carolina.

Tanner and Taylor we helpful (information wise) and the marina is well built and the docks first rate. We came in after hours and had no issues docking thanks to the very wide fairways. Only challenge was crab pots outside of marina that would have been near impossible to see after dark. Bathroom trailers leave a bit to be desired, but didn't need them much. Marina restaurant was fantastic. Price was $2.25 per foot, plus $10 for electricity (50 amp) so it's not the cheapest place to stay and they do not offer many discounts (No Boat US)

We spent 2 nites at this marina. Unfortunately, it wasn't up to par. On approach, we got no response to radio or phone calls. The bathrooms/showers were a small construction trailer that was in severe need of cleaning. Though we paid for a slip, we had to tie up to the fuel dock, which was subject to all of the wakes from other passing boats. The only good thing was our proximity to downtown Wilmington. For the rates we were charged, they really need to up their game. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this marina.

New docks in sheltered marina. Still under construction. Very convenient to downtown Wilmington. The temp facilities are adequate. When complete the facilities will be 5 star.
