Great marina with friendly service. Good helpful dock hands. Restaurant on site and several within walking distance. Shuttle available to grocery. On suggestion for improvement: The pool is very nice but has little shared area for lounges is you don't want full sun exposure. There are some umbrellas, but they don't create much shade. Please give guests the option of more shade while lounging around pool! === Stopped back a week later. Our compliments to Mary the dockmaster for handling our last minute reservation and arrival very well - even though she was shorthanded.

A charming basic marina near Reedville by water but far away by car or walking. Unusual honor system - a box where you can leave payment according to posted rates. Pick you own slip from those without a boat or dock lines. Charming owner. Clear toilets/showers. Dock in good condition. and clean. Marina next door has restaurant with limited hours but going by boat is much easier than circuitous walk. Nothing else within walking distance except a church. Close to menhaden processing factory which you probably can smell when they are making fish oil. They weren't the day were were there so can't describe from experience.

Arrived the day after Hurricane Isaisa which hit area near this marina pretty hard. My first visit there. Nice location, nice docks, good pool, friendly bar next to pool and near beach, but due to the circumstances no marina staff available as they were involved in repairs at marina and elsewhere. Couldn't even buy fuel! Wi-Fi not working due to problem with their internet supplier due to storm. Finally met a manager at the bar who was able to give me the code for the showers as well as explaining why there was no Wi-Fi. Clearly an exceptional set of problems due to storm but a partial refund of usual price might be a good gesture under these circumstances. If you want to get away and forget about COVID, this is a good place because none of the staff use masks and there are not reminders posted about "social distancing". However, when you leave property you will discover that over businesses in tUrbanna expect you to take reasonable COVID precautions!

Marina Response:
I don't normally respond to bad reviews however I take exception to this one. I'm sorry if we were preoccupied with repairs after a hurricane and an F2 tornado. The signs that were up asking you to keep your distance blew to Fredericksburg for all I know. The fuel dock was open for you and I was again, working when you left. Right beside where you were tied up. Considering what we went through the day before the fact that the tiki bar was open, the pool was open, we had power and water, I think we're doing pretty good. So no, to partial refunds.

Were underway when Hurricane Isaias started to look serious for Chesapeake area. Changed out plans to get to Crisfield and wait it out at Somers Cove - one of the most protected marinas I have ever seen! Except for holiday weekends, it rarely is crowded and turns out that you get free dockage during severe storms since it is a harbor of refuge for the nearby islands. Most docks are fixed, but transients get a floating dock. Warm greetings and good service but the marina itself does no boat maintenance. It does sell fuel and have free pumpout for transients. Great pool. Sadly Crisfield is not the most fascinating place in the word and has seen its better days. But the people are very friendly and the crabs are very fresh. They are trying to bring this historic town back - once the "seafood capital of USA". After hurricane, marina was temporarily cut off from town by flooding except for a route with a long detour.

A magical place! But to be real, the rest rooms are clean and OK, the restaurant has quirky hours and generally isn't open on week days, and it is in the middle of no where so forget about walking anywhere for shopping or eating. BUT it is the word's most protected basin in case of storms and has a beautiful beach - rare on Chesapeake as well as a pool net to beach with nice bar whidh also has a quirky schedule. Outstanding birdwatching with an eagle's nest near on of the docks and lots of osprey and great blue herons. Even some ducks.. Friendly helpful local staff.

Beautiful facility closer to town than others and includes 2 pools, one with bar and nice light meals. But management may be focused on condo apartments not boaters. Arrived Sunday PM. Office closed. No welcome packet, just key card to pools and heads. Dock crew friendly and enthusiastic but poor boat skills. Asked about ice, told to walk 3 blocks to Wawa. Actually further pool on property has free ice but no bags for it. Laundromat next to Wawa - first time no laundromat at marina this size and expensive.

Despite Dockwa listing showing "wireless Internet" there is none While the is a restaurant which is reasonably good, it is only open Thursday-Sunday. Nice pool, but water was oddly cloudy while we were there.
