NSA Week Long Cruise

The week long cruise this year is planned for the Albemarle Loop.  

We will be visiting Belhaven, Alligator River, Albemarle Plantation and Edenton.  The trip will include anchoring out as well as marinas to give a mix of locations, even though the return trip covers some of the same waters.

For those with extra time, a "cruise extension" is also planned to Ocracoke.

The tentative float plan is as follows:

  • June 16 to June 24 – Total of 9 Days
  • Day 1: Oriental to anchorage outside Alligator River – Pongo River canal. (46 Nm)
    • There is good anchoring just off the ICW route as well as further inside in Cranberry Bay
    • With this being day 1, we can leave things a bit loose, but possibly we could do a dinghy raft up with drinks and appetizers
  • Day 2: Pongo River canal to Alligator River Marina (37 Nm) or north end of Alligator River anchorage (40 Nm)
  • Day 3: Alligator River Marina to Albemarle Plantation Marina (28 Nm)
  • Day 4: Lay Day at Albemarle Plantation
  • Day 5: Albemarle Plantation to Edenton Town Dock (17 Nm)
    • Edenton is a short distance from Albemarle Plantation, and a nice quaint town
    • We can take trolley tours, tour historic homes and museums, and the screw pile lighthouse
    • Great restaurant opportunities here
  • Day 6: Lay Day in Edenton
  • Day 7: Edenton to anchorage at south end of Alligator River near Tuckahoe Point (56 Nm)
  • Day 8: Alligator River anchorage to River Forest Marina in Belhaven (30 Nm).  Alternate marina in Dowry Creek.
    • End of cruise party
  • Day 9: Belhaven to home ports in Oriental (40 Nm)

Extension for those that can cruise for 2 weeks:

  • Day 9: Lay Day in Belhaven
  • Day 10: Belhaven to Ocracoke (42 Nm)
  • Day 11 -13: Lay Days in Ocracoke
  • Day 14: Ocracoke to Home (37 Nm)
