Located at Mile Marker 181.5 on the Intracoastal Waterway, the Provision Company is just yards from the town's two 48-hour free docks and the dinghy dock. Known as the "Sailing Capital of North Carolina" our little riverside village is a stopping place for both power and sail boats of all makes and sizes. We are a mostly fully stocked marine store and what we don't have you either don't really need (!) or we can order for you, usually with overnight delivery so you can be back out on the water in no time! Captains can even call ahead and we'll have whatever part you need waiting for you when you get here. Check out our Odds 'n Ends and Consignment aisles where you'll find that odd piece of plumbing or boat part you need that no one else has.
We are dealers for numerous products including AB, Achilles and Highfield dinghies; Tohatsu, Lehr propane powered, and Torquedo electric motors; Furlex furlers; Sunbrella; Gill foul weather gear; Nature's Head composting toilets; Sunbrella, and whole lot more.
Our grocery section has expanded to make reprovisioning quick and easy. We are proud to support our local farmers and offer local produce, dairy and meats. You'll find most anything you can find in a health food store including organic grains, pastas, condiments, snack foods, drinks, as well as personal care and cleaning products. We also sell beer, wine and ice, both cubed and blocks.
We offer complimentary bikes to boaters to make your exploring and restocking easier. We also have our "Cruisers Corner", a space for you to chill out or warm up while you surf the internet using our free WiFi. We also have an impressive Lending Library where you can exchange your books for something new to read.
The Provision Company is also a gift and clothing store with T-shirts galore and other casual wear, shoes, hats, bags, sunglasses and toys for kids. For those of you who long to get out on the water but don't have a means to do so, we rent kayaks and paddle boards.
Whether you arrive by land or sea, please stop by to see us and pick up a free town map! We are open 7 days a week.
