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.

Very nice Marina. Outrageous price. $190 a night. $4.75 per foot. You need to update transient slip pricing.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your constructive review. I see now, you are absolutely correct, our page does not show the full price range; $3/ft Mon-Thurs, $3.50/ft Fri-Sun, and $4.75/ft any given holiday weekend. This being Cinco de Mayo weekend, our rate does rise to $4.75/ft. We strive for honesty and excellence, extending our sincerest apologies if you felt slighted in any way! I will promptly have the issue fixed. Thank you for a wonderful stay, let us make it up to you in the future! - Clement, Dockmaster

Neat little town. Marina had 2 showers for entire location and they were dirty. My wife would not use them. Slips are tight. If a sail boat had not left in the morning we could not exit our row. Lots of party spill over onto docks as they enter directly into restaurant and deck. Food was great. Try Prime for steaks.

As always, we had a great time. Wonderful food, entertainment and staff. We did have one issue with a boat next to us that came in Saturday evening. They were very much drunk when they arrived, they were fighting and screaming at each other. Then after midnight until around 4 a.m. they were outside on the dock screaming, partying and playing music extremely loudly. We did mention to the one dock worker who told us they are regulars. As a paying guest we were not happy to have been woken up all night by them. Other than that, it was a wonderful weekend.

A bad experience. We reserved space for a 58' boat. The arrogant dock boy demanded that we tie up with 25' of the boat off the dock, in the fairway, We won't be back.

Marina Response:
That's unfortunate you didn't enjoy your experience; arrogance and confidence can certainly be mistaken when there is a lack of trust in the abilities of your dockhand. Safe travels

The dock hands were amazing! They kept us and our boats safe from other boats. The only disappointment is that there were several open slips that could have been used by our friends that were told Chesapeake Inn was fully booked! I had no one in the slip next to me except for transients having meals, which still left more than enough slips for our travel companions. We ate at both restaurants and tipped like crazy all weekend. I certainly hope if we return that we can actually bring our entire party.

Marina is advertised with 50amp / 240 V electric service. When we first pull end, the pedestal did not have any electric service. We moved to another one that had a 2 30 amp to single 50 amp spelter on it. We hooked up to it and had 100v on each leg. There were only two boats on the dock, including us. We had to turn on the generator just so that we could cook our dinner and have AC. Please hire an electrician that can bring the proper voltage to the pedestal. Thanks!

Tied up on a T-head. Good. Was asked to move for a 60’ boat arriving. Moved my 44’ to a 40’ slip. Not good. Power was 105 Volts. Enough for 1 A/C unit, no more.

Stayed for two days the end of May. Dockmaster Clement was great with getting tied up. Layout is odd in that you have to walk through a room full of seated diners to get to the transient bathroom and showers. Facilities were nice, but could use more cleaning, the mold on the shower curtains was a little off putting. Close to town and restaurants if you choose not to eat at Chesapeake Inn. Internet went down on the first day and despite being told "I have my IT guy on it", it did not work the rest of the stay. Overall it an okay stop, could have been much better.

Left a message with the marina before my stay. No one ever called me back. Sent 3 messages asking for the slip number through the Dockwa app that were also not answered. Called as we were pulling into the marina and still could not get ahold of the marina. Was told to call on channel 16 to get someone even though that is the coast guard channel and was then given the channel number. Very poor communication.

Was this helpful?  Yes - NoReport

This was the rudest dock staff I have ever dealt with (and we loop so we have been around); we will not be back. I hope someone doesn't get hurt by their combination of youth and arrogance.

Marina Response:
Incredibly aggressive captain with very poor communication skills. Captain screamed and cursed at me excessively and had absolutely no trust in the marina staff abilities. Assumed from the start that being a younger dockmaster, we are completely ignorant of our position. This captain was incapable of staying calm, work with the marina staff, and insisted on knowing best in a completely unfamiliar marina setting. If it weren't for our marina staff, this captain was going to beach his vessel before even entering the marina!

Great spot on the C&D to tuck in for the night. Excellent dock-hand and BEST non-YC showers on the eastern seaboard; although one must parade through the outdoor dining area to get there. Not a problem for us as it was a very slow TUE. Could see it maybe being a hassle on a warm, busy FRI evening. The Inn clearly cultivates the local party scene so if that’s not your thing maybe keep moving.

Dock staff were pleasant, but the Inn's attention to slipholders is seriously lacking:\n1) They had no showers, despite their website advertising, claiming it was due to \"a septic backflow a while ago.\" Did they tell me before taking my reservation? No. Did they offer some kind of refund? Hell-no. The dock attendant said \"is there anything I can help you with?\" and \"showers\" was my immediate response after a day of cruising to get to Chesapeake City, only to discover they had none, knew they had none, and did absolutely nothing about it.\n2) Chesapeake Inn is in a cellular dead-spot apparently, and Chesapeake Inn's WiFi sucks. They have 2 WiFi SSID; one is unsecure with great connection but absolutely no bandwidth (probably because 100-people are simultaneously trying to get Internet). The \"Marina\" SSID is secure, but none of the passwords given to me worked to get access. The dock-personnel couldn't have cared less about getting slipholders access, once-again despite their website advertisement.\n3) I've stayed at Chesapeake Inn before (pre-COVID), and the restaurant now extended their seating-tents all the way to the (paid-and-visitor) finger-pier docks. You literally have to walk through people eating dinner in order to get off your boat. Insane.\n4) This place is set-up to provide free-slips to people trying to access the Tiki-Bar and restaurant. There is non-stop drunken traffic in-and-out, regardless if you're a paid slipholder or someone playing bumper-boats in the middle of their poker-run. Although I had paid for a slip in advance, I (along with several other boats I heard pull-up) had no actual slip-assignment prior to arrival. Slips were intermixed with free-bar-parking in-between overnight mega-yachts. I literally had 3-boats dock behind me and 2-boats dock to my port-side (then leave) in four hours while I was tied-up. \n5) There is nothing peaceful about this marina; this place is meant for one thing: free parking for their restaurant and bar. I can't argue their business model; they probably sell a lot of alcohol based on all the yelling, foul-language, and stumbling captains I saw. Loud go-fasts, loud-music, loud-yelling, loud-partying... this place is certainly fun... but peaceful, no.\n6) Not the fault of the Inn/Marina, but a statement about the clientele: in 2-days in my slip, there was NOT ONE captain who used his bilge-blowers before turning the key. Seriously at-least 40-boats I personally watched the captain stumble aboard and immediately hit their key. I won't be surprised to read about this place in the news someday.

Fun spot! The marina staff are very nice and helpful. Great floating docks. The food at the restaurant was very good and the servers were top shelf! At the present moment, we're sitting The Deck outside bar having lunch. The menu has great variety, staff is excellent, and there are a ton of tv's so you can watch whatever sports event you want. We will definitely come back!

With a nasty cold front headed towards NJ and Delaware, we, and many others, tried to secure dockage at Chesapeake Inn and Marina. We requested a reservation on Dockwa, which went unanswered; we sent a message via Dockwa, which went unanswered; we phoned several times, which all went unanswered. Horrible and inexcusable behavior on Chesapeake Inn Marina’s part!!! If you are not accepting any more reservations, UPDATE DOCKWA so we are not left wondering where we can go for safe harbor. Truly an operation that does not care about their clientele.

Fantastic dock hands, nice floating docks, wonderful restaurant wait staff, & delicious food. Friday nights are understandable for a loud party crowd, but a bit much for our taste. The only suggestion I would really want to make would be to improve your restrooms & shower facilities for your boaters. No A/C for a Marina of this caliber is shocking and frustrating. The restaurant also has a large dining table literally right in front of the (2) restrooms/showers. So you have to say, “excuse me please” to the dining guests to enter and exit the bathroom. Really? Kinda tells you where the priority is I guess. But again, the dock hands and the restaurant wait staff made for a very pleasant stay.

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.

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.

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 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!

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.
