The Yeopim River and the Albemarle Sound provide open water for sailboats of all sizes. Our floating F-Dock is the perfect place to launch Sunfish for a sail in the more sheltered waters of Yeopim Creek. We belong to the Albemarle Sound Sailing Association and with the Osprey Yacht Club, co-sponsor a regional sailing regatta each spring.
There is easy access to the wide, but sheltered, water of Yeopim Creek from the Albemarle Plantation Marina docks. The water is usually warm enough for swimming by May, and you can often see enthusiasts water skiing, water tubing, or enjoying a pontoon-boat picnic trip up river to secluded spots surrounded by Bald Cypresses.
Both canoes and kayaks are available for rent from the dockmaster, and there is a dedicated launch ramp in front of the Dockmaster’s Office. A short trip can bring you to the protected water of Frank’s Creek, or a longer paddle will take you past lovely homes to a secluded shoreline of serenity and extraordinary wildlife. There’s always something new to see.
If you enjoy fishing, you will find many like-minded boaters on the docks and in the surrounding waters. Then too, in season, you will also see many locals tending their crab pots in the marina. The Sound Sports Club holds two annual fishing tournaments, a Dockfest in May and Rockfest in October.
The central North Carolina location of the Albemarle Plantation Marina is ideal as a jumping off spot for cruises of all lengths. It is 22 nm to the Intracoastal Waterway, providing a choice to cruise east to the Outer Banks, south to the Pamlico Sound or north to the Chesapeake Bay, or through the inlet to the Atlantic Ocean. The marina is a favorite stop on the Albemarle Loop circuit.
