The Onancock Wharf and Marina opens for the 2021 season March 15th through November 14 with all amenities. The Onancock Wharf and Marina is a safe environment and we wear masks, have hand sanitizing stations and exercise social distancing. Please be mindful to do so as well when appropriate around wharf facilities.
Wharf Hours: 7 days a week 0800 am - 4:00 pm March 15th through November 14th.
Onancock's tranquil location, deep and scenic approach, and fine harbor make this a delightful destination for cruisers seeking a very unique adventure. The harbor yields to a neighborhood of beautiful Victorian houses and a business district filled with an increasingly sophisticated mix of shops and gourmet restaurants.
Really nice quiet and quaint facility. Craig and Bill friendly and helpful. Floating aluminum docks in great shape. Laundry and head/shower top notch—clean and new. Mallard’s restaurant right there, short walk into lovely town for breakfast at Janet’s.
Excellent as usual. Craig does a wonderful job. This is a must stop on the eastern shore of the bay.
Great facilities and a great Dockmaster
Harbormaster Craig was awesome. He was very helpful and professional. I cannot say how grateful we were to be in this location while underway on our weeklong cruise. My wife was in great pain and in need of an emergency prescription refill. The marina has a long list of volunteers who are willing to shuttle boaters at the marina to different places around town. Within no time at all Mr. John was at our boat ready and willing to help us out. He drove us to the drugstore four miles away, waited while the prescription was filled, and drove us back to our boat. The story ends well due to this helpful service.
I love this marina. Clean, private bathrooms, free laundry, close to everything!
Loved the people and the town! Marina great
Great setting. Small cozy and friendly marina. Easy walk to town where great restaurants and shops . Good service .....only one disappointment as we wanted to stay half day and were told not an option even if we paid. I’m sure there is a good reason but we wanted to give the wind a chance to lay down
Marina staff communicated with us exceptionally well. They let us know the exact wind and current to expect. And stayed a few minutes overtime to help us tie up. The locals are extremely friendly and the stores and restaurants we visited were very Covid aware and helped us feel safe.
Very helpful & friendly Clean facilities. Beautiful town!
Onancock Wharf is a nice and clean little marina with new floating docks and showers. The folks in Onancock are extremely friendly and will gladly give boaters rides to local places. There is the Star Shuttle system for longer trips and the Shore Transport service for rides and tours. The Onancock to Tangier a Island leaves from the Wharf. Mallards dock bar and Restaurant is on-site and has good food.
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.
Everything was great. The marina is modern and well maintained. The dockmaster, Craig, was super. He made our stay very enjoyable.
What a great find ! Almost hate to give a review so it won’t get too busy. The facilities are new and clean and fresh. Loved having the Free Laundry. So close to town. Great & helpful staff
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.
It was great, the new floating slips are a super improvement. The staff was really helpful and friendly.
New floating docks are excellent. Dock master could not have been any more helpful or nicer. What are you waiting for.....GO!
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.
Very nice little town.....especially the donut shop!!
dock master was extremely helpful.
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.
Dockmaster Glenn provide provides excellent customer service. The facilities are new and modern. This is our 5th stay at Onancock. The facilities are always improving.
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?
Loved every bit of it! An awesome place to visit. Friendly staff at the marina! We had a great time and will be back!
Great little place...great wifi...no cable
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.
Great facilities! Ruth and her stuff go out of their way to make your stay a good one. Bathrooms, wfi, pumpout, washer & dryer all in great working condition.
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
