Tidewater Yacht is located in the heart of Portsmouth’s Olde Towne District, where the city has engaged in one of the most impressive restoration projects on the waterway. A short, scenic drive away are such historic attractions as Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown and James River Plantations, as well as the theme parks Busch Gardens, Water Country USA, Ocean Breeze Water Park and of course, the Virginia Beach resort area oceanfront. On the water, you’ll never have to leave your boat to enjoy such fun festivals and activities such as Harborfest, 4th of July, Race to Cock Island, Rendezvous-Mile Marker Zero, Parade of Lights and New Year’s Eve festivities. You’ll have a front row seat to everything the Portsmouth and Norfolk have to offer!
We loved this marina! Well protected, good dock hands, especially John, great on site restaurant, Fish&Slips, and Old Town Free Shuttle was the best! Our driver/owner, Greg, was not only our driver, but the best tour guide and so very helpful.
Marina has deteriorated since our stay 2.5 years ago. Bathroom and shower facilities are mediocre at best and need housekeeping.
It was fine until after I took a shower, I couldn’t find an electric outlet to dry my hair. I looked all through the ladies facility, but no plugs.
Friendly convenient marina. Excellent bar/eatery on site. Always happy to come to TYM.
Restroom not very clean. Hand towels and TP missing. Pool appeared to have algae in it. Store not open after five, Not good for late arrivals in summer. Will probably try somewhere else next time over that way. Still some good restaurants in walking distance, and very easy to stop on the ICW.
We've stayed there many times and it's always good. The staff is very friendly and professional and the facilities are good.
Nice as always, appreciate the addition of the pilings between the slips.
Only complaint was extensive amount of bird poop on our dock. Stuff happens, but it can be hosed off every once and a while. I did it myself. This was over 4th, so would have thought they would have been prepared. Who wants that stuff in their boat?
Good in all aspects except the pump out had almost no suction and could not pump even our small tank. Good diesel - Valvect - and decent price.
Very nice marina. Clean and friendly!
We tied up at approx 4:20 pm and requested to get about 500 gallons of fuel. The doc and had to request permission to start fueling me at that time as apparently management does not want to pay them overtime. One would think that a $1500 purchase could pay for a bit of overtime. Eventually, it was a happy ending and they did get permission to sell me fuel.
Convenient location, good facilities, onsite restaurant
Older marina well located to both Waterside & downtown Portsmouth. Staff friendly and professional. Marina bathrooms could use refurbishment and something to control smells.
We enjoy this marina for it's amenties and location. Floating pool, gas and diesel, pumpout station, pleanty of docking for transients large vessels or small, remodeled bath houses, wash house with commerical dryers and washers, within walking distance of many eateries, museums, a short $1.50 ferry ride to Norfolk VA with nice shopping mall, hotels, eateries, ballpark. A destination in itself, and short cruise from the Chesapeak Bay
