Great marina, new floating docks, new bathrooms, courtesy car. Very protected and only 1.5 miles to town.

Great marina with wonderful people and nice floating docks. Gorgeous surroundings. The fuel dock/pumpout area is not obvious until you are there. The heads/showers were clean and nice, there was a lounge with coffee and water, and we were able to borrow the marina car to get a delicious Thai meal in Kilmarnock as well as make a provisions run to Food Lion the same evening. Definitely recommend this marina and will be back!

Wow! What a little gem this place turned out to be. Brand new, floating docks, deep water, brand, new showers with glass enclosure‘s! Plus, a courtesy car. Topher, the new owner, is very knowledgeable, and very welcoming. in a pretty, quiet setting on virginia’s Northern neck.

This is a very well run marina. Super friendly staff and Parker was awesome helping me to dock, I am solo. New floating docks for transients, really well constructed. New pedestals well lit at night. The best were the new clean restrooms with brand new showers. Numerous showers. And clean new laundry machines. I’ve been sailing south from Maine for the past 4 months and these are the nicest facilities I’ve seen. As a comparison, the bathrooms and showers at the Annapolis Harbormaster are gross. Also, the marina was easy in and out on my way south. Great place. And they give you a van to drive to dinner or to provision. 5 stars.

Very nice quiet marina with lots of attractive upgrades, including new floating docks and shower rooms, and a courtesy car. Great reception and help with lines from dock master Parker. Transient rate for late October seems a little high however.

The new piers and bathhouse are wonderful. The staff is very friendly! There are bikes and a van to share among the transients...and a pool with a view! Relaxing and comfortable...we'll be back!!

Reservations went flawlessly, radioed upon approach and took fuel. Josh, the dockhand was quick and very helpful, Then Parker came from the office to give slip assignment and met me at our slip. Beautiful new floating docks and very easily manageable with larger fairways. Cathy in the office was helpful when I inquired about local places of interest and even offer use of marina vehicle. The highlight was being in the salt water pool. Can’t say enough good about this marina. It may seem a bit off the bay but the 1.5 miles up the Indian Creek is serene and picturesque. We will return!!

New floating docks, clean, nice folks, courtesy car, not do great internet.
Marina Response:
Thanks so much for the review. We will be adding a wireless repeater in the near future to hopefully improve the internet signal out on the new docks. Hopefully, it will be much improved for your next visit. Hope to see you again!
