Home » ICW Side Trip to Pamlico Sound on Carver Motor Yacht – Cruise to Oriental and Wilmington, NC

We take our Carver motor yacht across the Albemarle to the Roanoke Sound, where we stayed on the free dock, in the cute town of Manteo, NC.

For the first time, we travel the Pamlico Sound, passing a commercial fishing vessel, then on to the Neuse River. We enjoy a few days visiting the small sailing town of Oriental, NC, where we meet other cruisers.

We had to call Towboat US for assistance when we get stuck on a shoal at Brown’s inlet, near Camp Lejeune. We enjoyed calm nights on anchor at Wrightsville Beach, and we then navigate past a large dredging operation on the Cape Fear River as we approach Wilmington, NC
