About


The Chesapeake Inn Marina is located in the scenic Back Creek Basin and offers boaters a beautiful place to spend the day or stay the night. With the support of our expert marina staff, easily accessible amenities, and worry-free floating docks, you’ll have nothing but fun from tie up to cast off. We provide live music, slip-side food and drink service, and docking aid every day to ensure your satisfaction in an experience as unique as the Chesapeake Bay itself. Need a break from the boat? Feel free to take some time off the water and enjoy our historic town of Chesapeake City. With downtown just steps from the marina, its quaint streets offer unique shops, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and top-tier restaurants ready to make your retreat unforgettable.

Make it a day trip! Berth is free before 11pm and guests are accommodated on a first-come-first-serve basis. If the marina is full upon your arrival please take advantage of the Back Creek basin. Drop an anchor in its secluded lagoon adjacent to our docks and we will pick you up on our water taxi, free of charge.

Thinking of staying the night? You do not need to make a reservation to spend a night with us, but if you want to better your chances of receiving dockage, we recommend you reserve a slip. Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance and only for those intending to stay overnight. To reserve a slip feel free to reach out over the phone, via email, or through Dockwa. Power, water, and shower access are included in your dockage fee.

We made reservations months ago- no slip available when we arrived- had to float around the basin for 45 minutes waiting for a boat to leave - finally get tied up but we hang way over the dock into the basin. We come back from dinner and our water is disconnected and lines undone and power turned off- it seems like the boat behind us that the marina had us block in- decided to leave and make us his target.

The Dockmaster Clem was top notch. This marina is part of a very large very loud tiki bar restaurant. They do shut down around 10 so not too late. Showers are private and ok. Floating Dock relatively new but not stout. Overall a great overnight!

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.

We showed up on Memorial day weekend and it was NUTS! Crazy clueless drunken boaters coming and going all day long to enjoy the party. The Dockmasters ability to communicate our slip arrangement was limited and frustrating. The dock hands (guys in green shirts) running around were doing the IMPOSSIBLE, helping EVERYONE! Totally appreciated they did in fact have a slip for us but I was not certain until the last minute. With all the day trippers docking what seemed like anywhere they wanted I was certain our spot was lost but I was wrong. The green shirts shoe people away from going in the wrong spots and help to ensure all boats dock safely. The seen for a weekend was amazing, fun, met some great people, had a great pizza, and a few drinks. While noisy during the day once the sun went down the place emptied out and we had all to ourselves. Would definitely stop here again! I wish every marina would publish a map on Dockwa with dock numbers/names/letters and then share the expected slip assignment the morning of our arrival so we can rig lines and fenders accordingly. Was impossible to get that info out of them by e-mail, phone, only 3 minutes before docking did we know we had a place to go.

Met promptly on the sock as we came in, clear directions on where to go and expert help with the lines. Once we were tied up he spent a few minutes helping us get familiar with the marina and offered any help we needed during the stay. Really a fun stop with the bar and restaurant steps away.

We had a great time, mostly due to the staff (helpful/friendly dock hands) and location. It's extremely walkable to everywhere in the small, historic downtown area. Floating docks are always a plus too. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because of the bathroom facilities. Showering with a table of diners right outside the door is really strange, and probably stranger for them than us!

Horrible! We got there before noon and we’re put on the most popular dock,meaning loads of younger people, all drinking,wearingnext to nothing, no social distancing, and loud. We put up with this until 7pm when the rap music started blasting, then asked to be moved. Bathrooms are awful,located right in the heart of the outside dining area, so you have to ask people to move to access them.

Marina staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Chesapeake City is a charming historic village with great restaurant choices. Although our stay was mid-week and nearly off season-- we could see that the marina and restaurants at the Inn are a 'happening' spot. The Tiki Bar had lively music playing all afternoon and evening-- but not too loud.

We particularly liked the powerwashing at the Tiki Bar at 7:AM accompanied by the loud cursing of the operator. We also liked the table set up blocking the ramp from the dock. Our favorite was the absence of anyone from the marina until noon. We arrived early around 10:30. Then we had to move because a 50’ needed our slip. We are 47’ LOA. The best was the dochand who called the lines “ropes”!

Dock hand that greeted us was knowledgeable about lines and tying up the boat. Had our registration info all ready. Although it was a week day and. It crowded, we were ignored by the Tiki Bar staff. So we went upstairs and ate there. Not ignored there. Good service. Good sushi. Pleasant marina, especially mid week. Definitely will come back (although I’ve heard it’s loud on weekends).

It was great other than .....really resent the go fast starting their engines at 1 in the morning and revving them for 15 minutes before leaving, I know they have a quiet mode. No rules on this at this marina? Woke me out of a sound sleep. 12, ok....after that, quiet mode please.

Dock handler -- Clem -- was outstanding. He was very busy (nice Sunday in August) but still made sure every boat and every Captain was taken care of. He had to run from one end of the marina to the other several times during our visit to ensure every boat was taken care of -- he did not keep anyone waiting. He also did a great job of prioritizing the boats that had reservations and ensuring as many boats as possible were in slips. Food was okay -- we had salads, hamburgers, and some appetizers. A 4 rating for the food -- and service was slow . Beer was very cold and good selection!

We stayed the weekend for a family members wedding. My negative comment was your bathhouse facilities were seriously dirty. For the amount of money charged to stay the weekend, the bathhouse facilities were gross. Remind you this is the BEGINNING of boating season so there should be no excuse. Please address the problem for future boaters.

The dockhands and staff were excellent. This was my first DOCKWA reservation and it was flawless. A good friend had a wedding at the marina, the food was excellent. The dock bar area was very nice. Bartenders and greeters were nice. The only issue I had was there are just 2 bathrooms/showers for the entire marina. They are securely coded, but you have to walk into the deck restaurant and actually excuse yourself from patrons to get to the door. Chairs and tables are set up just next to the doors. Otherwise this place was great.
