Approach


Approach from the Bay and Cape Charles Channel to Cherry Stone Inlet Channel. Use NOAA Chart 12224 or view this chart from Mytopo . (Please note that the approach into Kings Creek and The Oyster Farm Marina is now maintained by private aids. As such, older charts will not reflect the current lateral aids noted below.) From the Cape Charles Town Jetty and Fishing Pier proceed through RN "2" & GC "1" then to Day Mark “2A” Fl R 2.5s and Green Day Mark ”3” (Heading @ 022m). Use the dolphin (tripod of pilings) as a range between these two navigational aids. Be sure to back-range (look behind you) as the current in this channel can approach 2 knots at times and, in conjunction with the wind, may set the mariner out of the channel. Come right once past R"4" to 093m and proceed down the channel marked with RN "4A" & cans 3A, 3B & 3C heading to G”5” and R”6”. DISREGARD DAY MARK 2CI . THIS DAY MARK IS FOR ANOTHER CHANNEL AND NOT FOR YOUR APPROACH INTO KINGS CREEK). Continue to follow the marked channel on into Kings Creek. Hail the marina once past R"4" on channel 16. You'll be asked to switch and answer our working channel. Dock hands with Oyster Farm Marina will be happy to assist you with dock lines, hook-ups and any other boating needs that you may have upon your arrival into Kings Creek.

Beautiful Marina in a great little town with lots of things to do. however I have to base my rating off of the price for this marina. I have a 33 ft boat and it cost about $100 a night to stay here, witch is quit a bit higher than other marinas in the area, and that's ok, but if you are going to charge top dollar you need to focus on the smaller details. the channel needs to be dredged, be careful and do your homework before coming in the first time, also I very BIG pet peeve of mine is a marina that does not respond to vhf channel 16, we had to call them on our cell phone to find out what slip to go in. the wifi did not work at all, and at night the dock looked like a disco dance party because the lights on the power pedestals were all blinking on and off. But all in all we had a great time, and I am glad that we have marinas like this close to home.

Helpful staff. Everything was clean and well maintained. Pool was great just what we needed on a hot July day.

Great marina as far as the physical docks and buildings. The management is horrible. No skilled dock hands, hours open short, no friendly, no flexibility or effort to please the customers. We checked in Monday, 3 friends came in Wednesday. We asked for slips together. All were told no, “we are sold out”. Two slips next to us open all week. Also pool is horrible. Small and cloudy (chemicals off). Lastly the channel in is extremely shallow. I personally pulled two boats off bottom with my dingy in the channel. Could be a great marina if properly managed and they respected their visitors and treated them kindly. Last issue is that we came down from Middle River and planned to fuel up at Marina, price was $4.95 per gallon diesel when all over the bay is $3.00 or less. Unbelievable! This is horrible and price gouging at the extreme! Go to the Cape Charles Harbor, $2.95 per gallon.

Wish we had more time to stay. What a beautiful resort! Cannot comment on the restaurant as it was closed that day and the next day we had other family plans. However, rest assured, we WILL come back for a longer stay!

Stayed 4 nights. Very busy weekend at the Marina. Slips are great. Only complaint is they could spend a little extra time on maintenance. Bathrooms are so so. No one touched/cleaned the pool the entire time we were there and it got heavy use. Everyone rents a golf cart and there were probably 40 of them parked there. Despite the large number of golf carts there is very limited electrical outlets to charge them. Need to add some charging outlets. The few they had kept getting the GFIC tripped due to overload. Still a great Marina and I will come back.

A quiet marina tucked in, on Kings Creek. The staff is great, and very helpful. They have shower facilities, laundry facilities, a pool, access to the beach overlooking the beautiful Chesapeake Bay. They have an angler store on premises. The Restaurant on premises serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. During the summer months, they have a bar and restaurant at the end of C-Pier with live entertainment every weekend. There is a short walk to the town, with shops and more restaurants.
