Peaceful, well kept marina. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Always great to have dockhands available to help out. Mallards is on site plus an easy walk to town! Beautiful creek.

Very nice facilities and staff. However for the 2nd year in a row our reserved slip assignment we were was changed at the last minute. This is a bit frustrating as we pre-plan our approach and docking procedure based on our slip assignment and when it changes last minute (to a less desirable slip), we need to adjust quickly. Not a huge deal, and as boaters we need to be flexible on the fly, but it would be nice if our assigned slip was honored.

Onancock Wharf and Marina was a small, but excellent marina. The staff was very helpful and the facilities spotless. While we didn't need to use them, it was nice to know they had diesel, a pump out station, free laundry, a courtesy car, and rental golf carts. We had a great dinner right next door at the Mallards.

Beautiful town to just walk or bike around. We were there over Mem Day Weekend and most of the downtown closed On Sun and Mon. Ballards right there at the marina is great, has live music.

Charles was very helpful getting us into our slip. Always a pleasant experience to visit Onancock Marina.

Nice, quiet marina with great access to quaint, historic town. Some businesses not open during our stay in May. Marina restrooms, showers and laundry clean and well kept.

The May 12-13 stay was extremely disappointing. We checked in with the marina at the marker required. We were informed that the berth we desired was unavailable due to an overstay. We understand these situations. We stated we required docking assistance. There were two of us but my wife has a handicap. The only person sent down to us (about 1430 hours,) was not experienced and was manning the desk AND assisting docking. There was a cross wind and the employee did no tend the line properly resulting in our inflatable tender being crushed into the dock resulting in a puncture. The employee did not apologize. Repairs will be costly and I will be referring this to my insurer. The Harbormaster must keep a sufficient number of experienced staff on duty to ensure customer and vessel safety. The day was Mother's Day but this is no excuse for unsafe conditions. I will return, however, I will have a personal conversation with the Harbormaster before docking.

Great marina with a very accommodating harbor master. Three spotless shower/restrooms. Easy walk to multiple good restaurants. Update Apr 2024. Still a great stop. One of our favorites.

Always friendly staff and and they have the cleanest restroom/shower facilities of any marina we visit. Great having a courtesy car now and golf cart rentals too.

Dockmaster Charles I’d helpful and polite. Marina is very closed to the small town. Some of the cleats in all wristlet needed to be re-secured. Great water pressure from the marina supplied hose.

The marina is treated as an asset by the town. The facilities are consistently well maintained. Very nice bathrooms, laundry etc. People in the town are very welcoming to visiting yachts. We dined out most meals during our visit at quality restaurants. We visited almost every shop and found nice things to buy.

Always a great place to hang out!

Great facilities, floating docks, artsy/fun town. Due to weather, we left a day early after just after check out time and the marina refunded our payment for that day. Very nice.

Courtesy car and golf carts available. Dockmaster was great.

This was our 3rd trip this season to Onancock Wharf Marina. We love the floating docks, the secure facilities and the free washer and dryer is a REALLY nice benefit to those who have been on a boat for awhile. Also, the town (walking distance) has great restaurants and other stores with stuff that you might actually need. I even found a GREAT fiber shop. We will certainly be back!

We have been sailing to Onancock annually from Oxford for the last 30 years, one of our favorites-spotless restrooms and showers (even with terry bathmats). This year we weathered Tropical Storm Ophelia—safe and secure. Although the Marina had closed for the storm, Charles, the dock master gave us his cell phone before leaving ‘just in case’. This is southern hospitality at its best. We look forward to staying again next fall.

This is absolutely a 5 star destination. The marina is excellent. The marina staff are superb. The town and the people that live there are amazing. I can't say enough good things about this trip and I will be back for sure.
