Morris Marina is located in Atlantic, NC at the end of Morris Marina Road on Core Sound. It is owned and operated by Kari & Rick Martin. Morris Marina has been in business for 69 years at Cape Lookout National Seashore and the National Park Service. Morris Marina is the homeport for the ferries, Donza Lee and Green Grass. The ferries offer transportation to Long Point Cabins on Portsmouth Island and the ferry trip is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour to the island. The marina is a safe harbor with seawalls, a launching ramp, boat slips, and a marked channel offering easy access to and from Core Sound. Gas and diesel are available on the docks.
The Marina also has a short order grill where you can order breakfast and coffee before you head for a day of fishing. The Grill is best known for the Morris Burger, the best hamburger on the Southern Outer Banks. Another famed offering at the Grill includes the Core Sound Shrimp-Burger, made with the best of the local Core Sound Shrimp. After your day of fishing on Core Sound, Wallace's Channel, Pamlico Sound, or Cape Lookout National Seashore, come back to the grill to relax with a cool drink and have a bite to eat. Located on the water, the view of Core Sound is breath taking from the air-conditioned inside and even better from the large deck overlooking the sound.
