We stayed at Ingram Bay Marina during the recent nor’easter. Park like setting, protected cove and great location close to Chesapeake Bay. Owner, Captain Billy was very responsive to our needs including using a courtesy car, just in time weather briefings, and just overall all warm hospitality. Definitely recommend. Especially to shelter from weather. Very peaceful and close to small towns such as Kilmarnock.
Thank you for choosing our safe Hurricane Hole here Ingram Bay Marina during the storm. It was a pleasure to meet y'all.
Good luck on your adventure through the Great Loop.
I look forward to taking care of the Great Loop boats still heading north behind you.
See you next time!!

What good fortune we had in finding this marina. Bill was welcoming and helpful. It’s nice to meet a person who knows boating as well as he does. And he was very accommodating to our every need. This marina is tucked in an amazingly protected little cove! We sat out gale force winds here and hardly felt a thing. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat.
Ingram Bay Marina is definitely a safe harbor in a storm! ...and we are only a couple minutes off the bay!
We hope the remainder of your trip went well. See you again!

Wonderful spot off the Chesapeake. Thanks to Billy and Mary. We made use of their courtesy car so we could visit Kilmarnock. Spotless bath house. Great, peaceful, scenic stay.

I made our reservation far in advance of our stay, and as it turns out we could not have been more fortunate. The day we arrived a gale warning was posted for the next day. I don't know that you could find a better marina to wait out a storm like this. The entrance to the little Bay is very narrow (but with plenty of depth) so once inside it's like a millpond even though quite literally a gale is blowing all around you. Capt Billy was a great host and ready to help in any way we might need. He has a loaner car, something which is getting pretty rare these days it seems, which we gratefully used to drive to Kilmarnock for some provisions. The facilities in the marina are basic but clean and functional. We will definitely be back when the opportunity arises.
We appreciate you choosing Ingram Bay Marina for your stay. We are known as the best hurricane hole on the Chesapeake.
Due to high demand, we are adding more transient slips this winter and will be able to accommodate up to 15 overnight guests (up to 65 feet).
Part of the upgrades will include new higher capacity fuel tanks and pumps so we can continue to have the best fuel and lowest prices on the bay.
We look forward to seeing you again!

Very protected. Charts don't depict true depths. Never saw less than 8 feet following the channel. Dock hand, Elijah, was helpful and pleasant. Slow fuel pump but best diesel price in the area. Old fashioned family owned marina. Very quiet overnight.
Thank you for choosing Ingram Bay Marina for your stay...and thank you for being part of our rapidly growing family of boaters that do business with us.
We are upgrading our facilities this winter. Upgrades include:
1) larger capacity fuel and gas tanks (so we can continue to offer the lowest fuel prices on the bay)
2) new high speed fuel pumps that can be adjusted slower for sailboats
3) 10 new transient slips that can accommodate up to 65 foot vessels including catamarans with up to 30ft beams.
We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Marina itself was excellent.
Approach buoy was missing a red sign though which almost caused us to hit shoal water. No mention of it when we spoke to the office before coming in and no indication that there were plans to fix it when it almost happened. Be very careful entering and exiting this one.
Also, one approach leg points directly into the PM sun and the pylons were virtually invisible for a good bit of it so find it early and bring strong sunglasses.
The storm just prior to your arrival blew that dayshape off. We replaced the marker immediately and appreciated you bringing that to our attention.
The late afternoon sun can be a factor on any west route, but fortunately, it is only a moment as you turn at the 2MC marker.
We appreciate you choosing Ingram Bay Marina and hope to see you again.

Been traveling for 10 days this place is the best we have stayed at. Easy access well marked. Quiet little cove. Owners are great friendly will do anything for you. Would recommend highly for an overnight or a few of days away from it all
Thank you for staying at our facility. We have become a popular stop for fuel and overnight guests.
We are upgrading with 10 more transient slips this winter as well as putting in brand new larger fuel tanks and pumps.
I look forward to seeing you again!

Great place to hide out weather, clean well run facility, friendly folks.
It was so nice to have you stay with us. Please stop by on your next trip to the area.

Small marina run by caring folks. Spotless restroom/shower. Quiet.
Thank you for choosing to stay at Ingram Bay Marina. We strive to keep our facilities clean and welcoming.
We are expanding our facilities this winter, so come back and see us again!

This is a very basic marina, and delivers exactly what is necessary. They did not respond to phone or VHF, but were helpful once we arrived. This is also the least expensive marina we've been at on the Bay. A great value if you don't need frills.
As with many businesses during the past year, staffing was limited. We strive to accommodate our customers and am glad we were able to meet your needs upon arrival.
Because of the high volume of business, we are able to keep our fuel and slip prices Very competitive.
We are expanding this winter with larger fuel capacity and faster pumps as well as adding more transient slips to meet the ever growing number of boats.
Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your next stay!

We loved our stay at Ingram Bay Marina. It is a great hurricane hole offering gas, bathrooms, pump out, courtesy car and a fun atmosphere!

No frills but we'll worth the stop, great people.

Great family run Marina! Nothing fancy, but but super well protected, clean facilities, fuel, water, pumpout and great people! Will definitely stay here again on our way north in the spring.
