big water, endless adventure

Life on the water means more here. The Albemarle Plantation Marina is one of the largest private marinas on the Eastern Seaboard. And its large proportions are matched by its hospitality. To those who love the boating lifestyle, (and those who’d like to discover it), welcome—you’ve found paradise! Our expert staff is eager to help beginners and experts alike enjoy a day on the water.

The marina and professional staff make it easy to hop on your boat and explore the colorful, historic towns of Edenton and Elizabeth City. Set out for a day on the Intracoastal Waterway or the Outer Banks.

If you dream of hooking ‘the big one’, head right out into the Gulf Stream, home to some of the world’s best sport fishing, and cast your line. When you return with your catch, cap off your day on the water by raising a glass with friends at our own Dockside Café. Enjoy dinner on the deck and watch the boats and fellow adventurers return to port as the sun sets.

This immense coastal estuary is the second largest in America, outsized only by the Chesapeake Bay, and outshined by none. Its size is impressive, but the joy and freedom it gives Albemarle residents is limitless. Connectivity is key here—just like our ‘straight shot’ drive by car to Virginia’s Tidewater region, routes by water let you get anywhere on the coast, easily.

The Sound is part of daily life here. We kayak, canoe, swim and ski in its warm waters. We set sail upon it. We enjoy its bountiful fishing and crabbing. We gather with friends at Marina Park and are inspired by its peaceful waters. We dream about the next adventure it holds.
