Our North Carolina Albemarle Loop (AL) provides the boating public with an exciting opportunity to cruise and explore the protected waters of historic Albemarle Sound. This exploration includes many of the creeks and rivers along the Albemarle Sound and its adjacent waters.  Boaters with Kayaks can dock at a AL marina and continue exploring with their own kayak or kayaks available at many AL locations.

Free slip rentals offer access to many adventures, entertainment, sporting events and various cultural activities. Visit the friendly communities surrounding Albemarle Sound as you share your boating experiences with other families in high-quality marinas. Albemarle Loop member marinas in the Albemarle Sound group offer at least 48 hours of FREE slippage, fresh water, and pump outs where available!  Also enjoy some unique facilities and amenities, such as shops and restaurants, nature trails, historic sites, tennis and bocce courts, golf, museums and more.”
