Tidewater is one of the oldest, well-established, yet most progressive, marinas on the Chesapeake Bay. As a full service marina, we offer all the facilities for the leisure boater, and take pride in our service. Our aim is to ensure your pleasure and satisfaction. If you just want to visit for a day or two, we have transient slips available for you to visit the town. Our staff will greet you and assist with docking, and give you all the information you’ll need to enjoy your visit to Tidewater and Havre de Grace.
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.
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-
Helpful dock hands. No washing machines. No pool.
Great staff. Very helpful.
Nice facilities and the staff was extremely pleasant. Great town with everything walking distance
Always love it here! The staff the bathrooms. The store. All top notch. We will be back again.
Absolutely wonderful stay. Staff helpful and pleasant. Marina is in walking of everything. We will definitely be back. TC
Great access to downtown, only reason for not getting a 5 is no food on site.
Very friendly staff and the bathrooms were absolutely spotless! We will be coming back !
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.
