Tidewater Marina - Sue and Mike P.May 11, 2024

Quiet Friday because of the weather. All good at the marina. Great restroom and shower combo. Hope there are plans to do some planting and resurface the parking lot. That would be a good addition to a fine marina.

My main complaint is that TM had me dock up against a bulkhead that was between two rows of slips at the end of the fairway. It was difficult the dock because the wind was blowing away from the bulkhead. I thought we'd be getting a slip, not a spot against a bulkhead. I was upset with where we were placed and told the lone dock hand that I wanted to speak with the dock master who never showed up or looked for me. TM is basically a parking lot, with slips and individual bathroom/showers in a small concrete block building in the parking lot. Everything is clean and well kept (otherwise I'd give this marina a single star) but don't expect anything fancy. The town of Havre deGrace is nice and we had dinner at a great Italian restaurant called La Cucina which I highly recommend. The only way to get to Havre deGrace is by way of a longish channel, running basically north and south and at parts it's narrow with very shallow water alone the sides. It took us about 30 minutes to reach the bay at about 5 knots fighting a current.

Some of the docks are a bit of a walk to the office, but everything there worked as it was supposed to. Tight maneuvering in the fairways but good instructions coming in.

Originally placed in a slip that was too small and would not enable us to disembark on the finger pier. Manager gave us attitude and complained that we had not given him our proper LOA. Whatever the cause (likely miscommunication through the app), his behavior was childish. We were able to move to a more suitable spot but it was outside of Wi-Fi range. Showers/toilets were “meh” on the cleanliness scale. HdG was great, will return, but not to this marina!

Nice stay at tidewater marina. Dock hand was very helpful and gave us city map. Close to town and restaurants. Bathrooms and showers could use some updating. Convenient fuel dock and pump out. Outstanding and helpful staff. Marina manager drove us several miles away to fill propane tank. That was extremely kind and helpful.

Moored for two days. Slip for second day wasn’t offered until 4:30pm. Memorial weekend boat traffic was horrible. Roughest mooring/anchorage we ever had. After passing your boat the Waves bounce off of Marina break wall and hit you again.

Disappointing. My wife is the boat expert and when she attempted to schedule the work to be done she was met with complete disregard and rudeness. The shop foreman had no time to talk to her and the yard manager treated her like a second-class person. Funny, when I showed up to request the same work no problems, and I was quite rude! Because of this, we decided to do our work in another yard, unbelievable this happens in this day and age. So many yards around willing to do good work I would avoid this marina. On a positive note it is close to town so...location, location, location but as far as I can tell that is all they have going for them, sad really.

Positives- The dockhand was great, she was helpful. The location was good, walking distance to bars and restaurants Negatives- The “C” slips have very little water at low tide. Floating and underwater grass packed every slip.

Marina Response:
We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and it's always good to hear that our dockhands are great. You are correct about the grass. It got ahead of us this year as it arrived earlier than usual- and it flourished faster. We have now harvested the SAV, and our basins are clear. We actually continue this process throughout the growing season. So that won't be a problem in the future. The little water at low tide that you experienced was most likely a false depth sounder reading caused by the grass. We invite you to re-visit us this season. We will extend a free night's dockage to you so you can see the difference first hand. Just send an email to [email protected], and we'll make the reservation.

My sailboat is currently there for unstepping of the mast. It seems to be too much trouble for the staff to give me a courtesy call as to when they will be performing the work. I've never seen a mast removed and would like to watch. As of today I can not recommend this marina, hopefully they will get their collective heads out of their four points of contacts. I will update this review if the communications get better but so far I rate this marina with a big D-

Marina was clean, dock hands were friendly. But everyone leaves the grounds at night, meaning you're at the mercy of the behavior of other boaters. Not always a good thing. There were a few rowdy folks that seemed to think it was OK to show off their boat stereos at 11pm with loud music. It would have been understandable (although still not OK) if they were 18. But they were more like in their 50's. There was no way to address this without a confrontation. This is where on-site marina management would have helped.

The location of the marina is good—close to the center of town. However, the bathroom/shower facilities are not that great. They could definitely use an upgrade. Also, when we went out for a short cruise on Saturday morning, they gave our slip away to another boat. We had told the marina staff twice that we were going out and we left our lines and power cables at the dock. When we returned we had to scramble to get some other lines ready and tie up at another location. We also had to postpone our lunch plans, because we had to wait for our spot to free up. We didn’t want to lose it again. Note that they only have 87 octane gas. If you need 89 octane, you can go to the city marina. It’s only a short distance south of Tidewater.

Very quiet and comfortable marina. Docks were in great shape. Basins are tight to maneuver around in (for a 50' boat), but it's doable. WiFi was fast, water pressure was great. Relaxing modest rocking from passing boats. Considered one of the mooring balls, and glad we settled on a slip - as we would have been rocked apart from all the boats in the river. Marine store is well stocked. On-site services available. Great location to walk around town. Bath houses are adequate. If we come back to the north end of the bay, we'll definitely stay here again.

Staff were very helpful with docking and communication. Bathrooms and showers were very clean and had AC. The marine store was well stocked. Best of all they had a courtesy can to help with shopping.
