About Galley Marina

As other marinas in New Bern are addressing storm damage from Florence, we can accommodate you now as we have ample dockage available.

Galley Marina is the nicest marina in New Bern, designed to accommodate fully transient boaters with our walkable access to downtown. We’re conveniently located right on the Neuse River within a short stroll to historic downtown New Bern’s many amenities and charms.

Clean-Marina-logo-2010Galley Marina has more than 400 feet of day dockage and 400 feet of transient dockage with 25 slips for boats up to 100 feet. In addition to in-slip pump-out service, we can provide your fuel — both diesel and gas. 

All of our slips have 30 and 50-amp electrical service as well as improved wi-fi reception. We also have private shower and restroom facilities for our guests in the nicest store on the waterway — the adjacent Galley Stores provisioning and gourmet store.

We’re proud to be a participating marina in the Active Captain boating community. We’re also a certified North Carolina Clean Marina.

Our uniquely situated dockmaster’s office atop our store overlooks the Marina, providing a panoramic view downriver of more than five miles. Please hail us on channel 16 or call at (252) 633-4648 and someone will always greet you at the dock. Our dockmaster’s office also serves as the office for Neptune Yacht Sales.

We are in the transient marina business which means we’re interested in providing everything you need, including fuel. Because Galley Stores also sells fuel for autos, it allows us to be very competitive on price when providing boaters a large volume of fuel. Call for volume discounts on purchases over 500 gallons.

If your boat needs repairs or other work, there are nearby boatyards. Bridgeton Boatworks is directly across the Neuse River in eyesight from our Marina and Duck Creek Marina‘s boatyard is just south of us once you go under the Hwy. 17/55 bridge.

Fishing in New Bern and the Surrounding Area

New Bern is set between two rivers (the Neuse and Trent rivers) with the seashore only 35 miles away. There is something for everyone — saltwater fishing in the Neuse for speckled trout, striped bass, blue fish, Spanish mackerel, flounder. Then turn the corner into the Trent River with freshwater species like bass, crappie, and bluegills. Off shore is everything from king mackerel, blue marlin, tuna and bluefish. New Bern can be a fisherman’s delight for a visit or as a place to live.
