Helpful, friendly staff. Nice bathhouses. Great floating docks. Easy walk to town. Next to a very good restaurant (Mallards) and Kayak guides/outfitters/tour leaders. The a stronger wifi signal would be welcome with higher speed.

the facility itself, and staff, as usual were wonderful. We always enjoy visiting shops, restaurants, and galleries in town. This visit was only marred by the gravel loading activities next door to the marina. A steam shovel transferring gravel to a barge created a tremendous amount of dust that coated our boat. Won't stop us from returning, but pretty annoying.

I had been to this beautiful little town by car a few years ago, and was determined to visit again by boat. Although a little off the beaten path moving our 44' Jeanneau sloop from Florida to Maine via the Chesapeake, the stop over was well worth it, and one the highlights of the trip. As a bonus the marina had even been upgraded since our prior visit - great facility and staff! Convenient excellent restaurant right at the wharf area, but don't miss the opportunity to take the short walk up the street to the beautiful village with more great restaurants and shops. The 5 mile trip up the creek looks daunting on the charts, but the channel is well marked, and the wharf area is very protective. Highly recommended as a destination or stop over, but reservations are strongly recommended, especially for weekends.

Great restaurant on the wharf “Mallards”. The rumors of very friendly town people are true. A woman drove up and offered to get groceries for us! The facilities were clean and in good repair. The location was beautiful and serene. We’ll definitely be back.

The stay at the marina was great. The booking experience with Dockwa was not. Dockwa collected the 3 nights slip fee from me, but the marina had no idea that anything other than the initial night has been collected so they charged me (and effectively double-charged me). Now I have to work to get the money back. Summary - I will definitely go to Onancock again but I won't use Dockwa to do it.

Marina Response:
So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Marina.sorry for the extra charges to you credit card .Lisa is working on your refund from the town.hope to see you again soon.

Lovely stay. Harbormaster Deb caught our lines and got us settled in. Good power and water. Great location with a number of excellent restaurants and a movie theater. Deb knew we needed groceries and called someone in town who offered to let us borrow their car! How do you top that?

Ruth, Deb and Tex are doing a great job! TV reception at the marina stinks (not the marina's fault) and the Wifi is incredibly slow at most times. Maybe the City can improve this service. Disappointed that the code to the laundry was changed our last day/evening without any notification. Otherwise, Onancock is a great town to visit.

Jeremy, Tex & Deb made the visit very nice. After a long day we were welcomed at the dock by the staff & neighbors to help us into the slip. Maybe it was my bad docking skills? Tex especially had a lot of local knowledge/stories to share. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean & Onancock is a very charming town. Will return again
