The floating docks were very nice and felt quite secure during some storms and high winds. The GM - Matt - was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. We would definitely stay there again.

Amazing marina! Great staff, community activities and boatyard. Love having recycling for engine fluids and batteries as well! Lots of good places to eat, post office, liquor store and West Marine all within walking distance.

Very good communication as we were coming in, and timely. We are so looking forward to you getting your shore facilities replaced as showers before bedtime would have been great after the hot sailing day. I still appreciate you working us into a slip as it was handy to the CCC skippers' mtg. Perhaps next year we can have skippers' meeting at your marina!

App messages were prompt and informative. Manager even provided work cell number for texting. Dock space was inadequate for an outboard motor. Spot location was difficult to get into and out of. Landing between boats was about 4 feet by they have a boat box on it making it nearly impossible to get onto the boat in the dock. Boards on dock were broken and rotted and my foot went through a hole.

Very friendly staff, beautiful marina, great restaurants and bars down the street, quiet neighborhood, and quick access to the ocean!

The staff are incredibly rude, unprofessional and unavailable. They have absolutely no people skills and should not be in the business of dealing with the public. It is difficult to access the parking area and I would not recommend this place to anyone. I grew up boating here and I was very disappointed with the treatment received by the current management.

Marina still has construction going on. The showers / bathrooms are a trailer and there is no laundry. The fingers on the floating dock are a bit small and sink when you step onto them. Dockmaster was awesome. Helpful and just seemed like a good guy. 2 restaurants within a short walk. Electric & water hookups were newer and in good condition.

The Pros: The location is a lot of fun. It’s less than 15 minutes to walk to the beach, the Saturday Farmer’s Market, or Cova Brewery & Coffeehouse, which has different food trucks every day. The neighborhood is great, we walked around every day and it’s beautiful. The staff was friendly and welcoming, and when we had issues they did try to fix them. The docks were relatively new, floating docks, with good access to power and water. The cons: the building in front of the docks, including the marina office, is under construction. There is a trailer with showers and a toilet, but they were neither clean nor well stocked. There was constantly no toilet paper. Packages were delivered to the wrong place. I’m sure it’s going to be an awesome marina when the construction is done (Spring 2022) but it was a tough visit in the meantime.

No one answered radio or phone. No employees anywhere on dock to help. Had to call manager cell to get slip number and direction.

Marina is undergoing some renovations. Everything was adequate, but basic.

The 5 star review isn't for a perfect marina, it's for a place that always does their best to accommodate folks, even amid their current construction/reconstruction. As a delivery skipper, i alway appreciate the way Matt has found the means to accommodate me and my clients during last minute weather or mechanical repair stops. He not only provides space, he offers help with a ride or info. Yes it's under construction. Yes they may not have all the amenities currently. But good people and a GREAT location. Thanks Matt - this was the third time you saved my crew.

Matt who runs the marina provided great support with pump out. Temporary shower facilities are small and could be much better - but construction in the area makes this understandable. Wonderful area to walk around and good dinner experience at Longboards within walking distance.

Showers and toilets are basically a fancy porta-potty, not very clean, and the entire marina is a construction site. Next time I'd consider alternatives in the basin if available - maybe things will improve when construction finishes.

Wonderful Marina. Right in a very cute safe neighborhood (to walk around and stretch your legs). There is a significant amount of construction going on near the Marina but the dock master was so helpful throughout our stay that we didn’t mind one bit

It was a little windy since we had Hurricane Isaiah passing over head. Matt the manager was key to our enjoyment. He was a great guy.

Marina is under refit/repairs but Matt made it possible to park Watermark at the next marina dock. He was also there to help us tie up in a brisk wind. Several great restaurants on site with take out. This remains our go-to stop between the Chesapeake and start of the ICW.
