Wilmington is a one of a kind spot on the East Coast. Sitting halfway between Boston and Key West, we have both the Cape Fear River and the Intracoastal Waterway to offer mariners from all over safe harbor. The latter provides a federally maintained route from Norfolk VA to Jacksonville FL, and there are waterfront restaurants, incredible beaches, and downtown Wilmington to enjoy right from the water.

While there are a host of public ramps you can use to enter the water here, we’d like to share with you two opportunities we have for you to dock your vessel!

The Helms Port Marina offers incredible protection along the Intracoastal Waterway, with an easy in-and-out canal entrance to navigate.

Highly protected 75-slip marina


The marina sits in front of an incredible resort-style pool and clubhouse, and offers a private beach and kayak launch as well. We’re showcasing an incredible Southern charmer home with the option to purchase a 30’ boat slip in Helms Port. This community was crafted with the boating lifestyle in mind, and this home is perfect for the mariner wishing to anchor in a beautiful second home coastal getaway.

5825 Harbor Breeze Drive

On the Cape Fear River, we are excited to present a 50’ boat slip in the coveted Cape Fear Marina. Serving only recreational boaters, this marina provides an upgraded bath house, laundry facilities, and a full-time harbormaster. This is the perfect investment for the boater who loves to travel the coast, and what better place to come ashore than the myriad of shops, restaurants, and tours in downtown Wilmington just 5 minutes away.
