About


Ingram Bay Marina is the closest marina and hurricane hole to the Chesapeake Bay. Voted BEST of the BAY by Chesapeake Bay Magazine and RIVAH Magazine, powerboats and sailboats alike are at home here.

In addition to our 1st Class - Covered boathouse slips and Outside slips that offer views of the Bay, we offer many other services and amenities to our boaters such as fishing charters, boat & kayak rentals, land storage, pump out, fuel, and a ship store.

This is a family owned and operated marina, with a charter fishing service and rental cabins. We have been blessed to live here since 1985. It’s, quite simply, our life, and a good life it is. We love our little corner of the world that allows us to live and work and play on our beloved Chesapeake Bay and feel privileged to be able to share it with you.

Whether it’s your home away from home or your vacation getaway, this is the perfect place for the action packed vacation. Situated near Reedville, right on the Chesapeake Bay and the Inter-Coastal Waterway puts you right on top of the very best fishing and sailing in the region.

Bring your jet ski, small water craft and use our deep water ramp. Book a fishing charter or dinner cruise (on site) to fine waterfront dining. Witness glorious sunrises and restful sunsets. Sparkling fields of fireflies at twilight. The sounds of the sea birds. Or just relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this lovely place not yet discovered by most of the world. Come check us out for a weekend ……. Or a lifetime.

Beautiful & peaceful Marina. Super helpful owners. Clean, well-presented bathroom/shower facilities. good dockage, no currents nor winds. Completely shielded from bay. Nice little ship/tackle shop. Somewhat shallow, but we didn’t bump at low tide, with 3.8’ draft. I’d go back.

Marina Response:
Thank you for staying at our facility. As you experienced, the atmosphere is safe, calm and comfortable. The depth on the approach is 10 ft and one spot that is 6 ft on low tide near the jetties. We look forward to seeing you again!

The marina is located in a beautiful spot, quiet, clean and well maintained. After a sporty trip sailing from Deltaville, it was the perfect place to relax. The owners could not have been more welcoming and gracious. We will be back.

Marina Response:

Easy approach with a well marked channel. Met at fuel dock by owner, Captain Billy. Captain Billy is a textbook of local knowledge and very welcoming. This was our second visit and we'll be back again. Perfect spot to wind down after a long day on the Bay. Very peaceful. Thanks again for the discount for fuel quantity.

Marina Response:
Mark, It was great to have you back at the marina! I hope you enjoyed your trip. Our fuel, as you know, is usually the lowest price on the bay. See you again!

My brother, Kevin, reports that Billy was very helpful & very nice. Speaking with Billy myself on the phone to arrange Kevin's arrival, I could hear his southern hospitality & caring nature coming through as we talked about helping Kevin out. Billy is definitely an excellant ambassador for his marina and went out of his way to help with arrival specifics and tide coordination. Kevin reports that the facilities were very nice and over all, he had a very pleasant stay. Ingram Bay Marina is definitely a marina to put on your list to stop at, should you have the occasion.

Been traveling for 10 days this place is the best we have stayed at. Easy access well marked. Quiet little cove. Owners are great friendly will do anything for you. Would recommend highly for an overnight or a few of days away from it all. This is our 3rd time stopping here and will make it a guaranteed stop every time I am in the area. Capt Billy treats you like family and will do everything to help. Always fresh fuel and easy to fuel and pump out highly recommend if your in the area 5 stars +\n

Marina Response:
Thank you for staying at our facility. We have become a popular stop for fuel and overnight guests. We are upgrading with 10 more transient slips this winter as well as putting in brand new larger fuel tanks and pumps. I look forward to seeing you again! -Capt. Billy (Ingram Bay Marina)

One of the nicest small marinas to stop at. Crab pot dodging is a task on the way in during seasons, skinny channel to navigate, so paying attention is necessary for entry and exit. Billy’’s local knowledge is invaluable and the small atmosphere is wonderful for those who like that. Good small draft/boat spot.

We stayed at Ingram Bay Marina during the recent nor’easter. Park like setting, protected cove and great location close to Chesapeake Bay. Owner, Captain Billy was very responsive to our needs including using a courtesy car, just in time weather briefings, and just overall all warm hospitality. Definitely recommend. Especially to shelter from weather. Very peaceful and close to small towns such as Kilmarnock.

Marina Response:
Thank you for choosing our safe Hurricane Hole here Ingram Bay Marina during the storm. It was a pleasure to meet y'all. Good luck on your adventure through the Great Loop. I look forward to taking care of the Great Loop boats still heading north behind you. See you next time!!

What good fortune we had in finding this marina. Bill was welcoming and helpful. It’s nice to meet a person who knows boating as well as he does. And he was very accommodating to our every need. This marina is tucked in an amazingly protected little cove! We sat out gale force winds here and hardly felt a thing. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat.

Marina Response:
Ingram Bay Marina is definitely a safe harbor in a storm! ...and we are only a couple minutes off the bay! We hope the remainder of your trip went well. See you again!

Wonderful spot off the Chesapeake. Thanks to Billy and Mary. We made use of their courtesy car so we could visit Kilmarnock. Spotless bath house. Great, peaceful, scenic stay. Tris Green Eyes

I made our reservation far in advance of our stay, and as it turns out we could not have been more fortunate. The day we arrived a gale warning was posted for the next day. I don't know that you could find a better marina to wait out a storm like this. The entrance to the little Bay is very narrow (but with plenty of depth) so once inside it's like a millpond even though quite literally a gale is blowing all around you. Capt Billy was a great host and ready to help in any way we might need. He has a loaner car, something which is getting pretty rare these days it seems, which we gratefully used to drive to Kilmarnock for some provisions. The facilities in the marina are basic but clean and functional. We will definitely be back when the opportunity arises.

Marina Response:
We appreciate you choosing Ingram Bay Marina for your stay. We are known as the best hurricane hole on the Chesapeake. Due to high demand, we are adding more transient slips this winter and will be able to accommodate up to 15 overnight guests (up to 65 feet). Part of the upgrades will include new higher capacity fuel tanks and pumps so we can continue to have the best fuel and lowest prices on the bay. We look forward to seeing you again!

Very protected. Charts don't depict true depths. Never saw less than 8 feet following the channel. Dock hand, Elijah, was helpful and pleasant. Slow fuel pump but best diesel price in the area. Old fashioned family owned marina. Very quiet overnight.

Marina Response:
Thank you for choosing Ingram Bay Marina for your stay...and thank you for being part of our rapidly growing family of boaters that do business with us. We are upgrading our facilities this winter. Upgrades include: 1) larger capacity fuel and gas tanks (so we can continue to offer the lowest fuel prices on the bay) 2) new high speed fuel pumps that can be adjusted slower for sailboats 3) 10 new transient slips that can accommodate up to 65 foot vessels including catamarans with up to 30ft beams. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Marina itself was excellent. Approach buoy was missing a red sign though which almost caused us to hit shoal water. No mention of it when we spoke to the office before coming in and no indication that there were plans to fix it when it almost happened. Be very careful entering and exiting this one. Also, one approach leg points directly into the PM sun and the pylons were virtually invisible for a good bit of it so find it early and bring strong sunglasses.

Marina Response:
The storm just prior to your arrival blew that dayshape off. We replaced the marker immediately and appreciated you bringing that to our attention. The late afternoon sun can be a factor on any west route, but fortunately, it is only a moment as you turn at the 2MC marker. We appreciate you choosing Ingram Bay Marina and hope to see you again.

This is a very basic marina, and delivers exactly what is necessary. They did not respond to phone or VHF, but were helpful once we arrived. This is also the least expensive marina we've been at on the Bay. A great value if you don't need frills.

Marina Response:
As with many businesses during the past year, staffing was limited. We strive to accommodate our customers and am glad we were able to meet your needs upon arrival. Because of the high volume of business, we are able to keep our fuel and slip prices Very competitive. We are expanding this winter with larger fuel capacity and faster pumps as well as adding more transient slips to meet the ever growing number of boats. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your next stay!
