Skipjack Landing on Front Street, a business development in downtown New Bern, takes its name from the wind-powered oyster-dredging boats designed in 1842. At that time, fearing for the ongoing productivity of the oyster beds, Congress had passed a law prohibiting the harvest of oysters with power-driven vessels. Skipjack was the fishermen's answer, and the design is still active today, especially in the Chesapeake.

Skipjack Landing hosts the Marina office for the 30-slip Galley Marina at Skipjack Landing, the gourmet grocery Galley Stores at Skipjack Landing and the restaurant Persimmons On the Water at Skipjack Landing. Rocking to sleep on the boat, stocking the larder with fresh local produce, meats and seafoods, and/or leisurely dining by the beautiful New Bern waters, boaters and lubbers will find great times at Skipjack Landing.
