Mariners can visit the only mainland port of call flanking the Pamlico’s mid-section. The marked, Far Creek channel, leading west to the tiny fishing and farming village of Engelhard, lies south of charted Long Shoal River. Far Creek is a federally maintained navigational channel with 14 feet of water depth just off the Pamlico Sound. After traversing this 5-foot passage, cruisers will sight a well-sheltered harbor dead ahead, teeming with colorful fishing and shrimping trawlers. Have your camera ready.
