Update June 2021 - This is not our first time at the marina. We called ahead for our slip assignment, which was good as the dockmaster/dockhand were not at work. If entering the marina using the first fairway, stay to port and heed the warning markers. Docking at the marina is typically straight forward; recommend downloading the marina map from the website. The office at the Inn provided bathhouse codes and WiFi passwords. The bathhouse is clean, and the laundry has a washer and dryer, $1.00 per load. The marina is a nice walk to the small-town center with shops and restaurants (the marina’s restaurant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). Haven Harbour next door has a ship store if needed and can be accessed via dinghy or walking. Another great stay at Osprey Point Marina. Our first was with a rendezvous in June 2016 (we also took delivery of our boat here in December 2014). The dockhand was very help with securing the boat and hooking-up power. The docks and facilities are maintained in good shape. The only down side at times was the bird poop on the docks (a pain when jumping on and off the boat during docking, and attaching power and water), which we would cleaned-off once secured and got our hose connected. The marina offers a BoatUS discount for transients and the welcome packet provides adequate details on the facility and Rock Hall, which is a very walk-able town (or a tram is available for $1 per person until October or November). Onspot provides the wifi for the marina. We have eaten dinner at the restaurant which is very good. Trestaurant was busy, but we were able to sit at the small bar to eat. We highly recommend the scallops!! We look forward to another stay in the future. As a FYI when we arrived on 13 Oct and asked if the pumpout was available 24/7, which the dock hand confirmed. What was not conveyed until we were docked early the next morning at the pumpout was the need to obtain a token for $5 from the office. As we were also looking to fuel-up, we passed on using the pumpout.

This is not our first stay at the marina. We arrived early afternoon and the dockmaster Shawn met us as we pulled in. He was quick and professional to get us secured to the floating dock and power hooked-up. He returned a couple minutes later with our paper work and bathhouse code. The marina has two bathhouse rooms for transits, simple and clean. There are two downsides to the bathhouse: first users must walk through the out-door dining area (tables right next to the doors); and the rooms lacked sufficient air conditioning. An interesting note is the room on the left has a single shower, sink and toilet while the right one has two showers, single sink and toilet. The WiFi worked well. The on-site Tiki-bar provides good food. Upon departing prior to the Dockmaster office opening we could not find a place to depose of our recyclables.

Tolchester Marina This is our first time at the marina. As part of the reservation process via Dockwa the staff ensured that we knew there were no food amenities available after 5p on Sunday (day of arrival) and until after our departure on Tuesday. This was good information and we planned accordingly. Arrived on Sunday, June 6, 2021, at approximately 1pm and noticed that the entrance to the basin was very busy. Was unable to contact the marina via VHF but was able to receive a slip assignment via cell phone. A dockhand at the fuel dock was able to provide directions to the slip. While not all slips had easily identifiable numbers, a dockhand was able to point out the slip and provided assistance with initially securing the lines to the dock. During check-in, the dockhand provided our WiFi and bathhouse information. He also advised us to contact the office if we needed any assistance, including fuel Monday through Thursday. Our slip was located within one of the covered sheds with fixed docks. The finger pier was full length and in good condition, even though we noticed several requiring attention. The floating docks are in very good condition. It is evident that this is a destination marina for folks on the weekend looking for a nice beach and pool and many day boaters were departing shortly after the beach bar closed at 5pm. The bathhouse, laundry and pool are available to transits. The bathhouse is clean and appears to have been remodeled recently. A downside in the men’s bathhouse is one shower stalled lacked a door (all three had curtains to minimize water on the floor outside of the shower) and one lacked water pressure and hot water (third shower was a charm). Slips under the sheds provide nice protection from the sun. For nature views the floating docks (Santa Rosa) on the southern side of the basin provides potential views of eagles, osprey, ducks, buzzards, racoons and deer (all seen during our stay). The free WiFi was good, but cellular connections can be spotty, even if booster is used. Recommend cell phones be configured by WiFi calling if offered by your carrier prior to arriving at the marina. This is a good marina for transits heading up or down the bay. It is also a nice marina for folks wanting quiet during the week. Just remember, currently there is no one site food service Monday through Thursday, so pack accordingly. Gave the marina four stars, but due to the men’s bathhouse would have been 3.5.
