Nice marina with floating docks. Great dock help, reasonable bathrooms and shower, and good dockside restaurant.

Top notch Marina and great staff. Stayed for two weeks and Spencer and his staff were awesome!! Will be heading back again soon!

Easy access. I didn't use the facilities offered, but it was very clean. The whole process was handled very efficiently due to the experience of the harbormaster and using Dockwa.

Dock master was super helpful when I had outboard engine trouble and called me back with advice that helped me fix it. Great place!

They advertise a pool and a laundry and they have neither. The marina that does have those perks (Oyster Farm) will not let you use them unless you stay at their marina. Otherwise the head and showers were large and clean. They have block ice! And the quaint little town is .25 mi away.

Marina Response:
Thank you very much for staying with us here at the Cape Charles Town Harbor. First of all we do apologize for any inconvenience. We wanted to respond to your review in order to clarify a couple things. If you will notice here on our page, neither a laundry facility nor a pool are listed under our amenities selections. I am aware of one older cruising guide that had us listed as having a pool but that was a misprint. There is no pool here and there are no current plans to ever have a pool. However, we are very proud of our public, white sand-Cape Charles Beach which is a 5 minute walk from the harbor. Next, there was a Laundromat here in downtown Cape Charles that served the community and the harbor's boaters for 39 years. It was recently closed for business and has been reopened by the same family as the Peach Street Convenience Store. In reaction to the closing of the sole Laundromat here in town, we are currently working on creating a laundry facility to accommodate our transient boater's needs. I must say we are humbled by our available space, as it will only be one washer and one dryer. Once again, thank you for staying with us, we look forward to hosting you again. Sincerely, Cape Charles Harbor

Staff very helpful, facility very clean and well maintained, only thing missing was laundry facility and I understand they are working on that. The town is very pleasant. Brown Dog ice cream has fabulous flavors, i liked Strawberry Rhubarb flavor. Shanty’s resteraunt next to Marina was bery good as was Kelly’s Irish pub

This marina is always lovely...from the condition of the docks to the people who stay there. It's so close to restaurants and so convenient. We always enjoy it.

Cape Charles Municipal Marina is a great place to stay for the night. THe on location restaurant, The Shanty, is the hot spot for Cape Charles. Great food and friendly atmosphere. Courteous Marina staff, cleas showers and rest rooms.

Docks are very nice. As are the facilities. Worked out well for us this time.

The Wave action at the dock rocked the boat all night. No one got to sleep. Sunday was blessed with a loud water pump going off all day and that was followed by a night of loud music from the restraunt. Contined by the restraunt employees seemingly playing the drums on the trash cans. The town gave little entertainment value. Skip going and save yourself and get some sleep

We had a great stay at Cape Charles Town Harbor. The dock master emailed us our slip assignment a few days ahead. The marina immediately answered our hail on VHF16 and had a line handler meet us at the slip. The floating docks are in excellent condition. The restrooms and showers are relatively new, very clean and accessed by coded door locks. There are several restaurants in easy walking distance.

Nice touch calling me by my first name when I called on the VHF,

About Cape Charles Town Harbor

The Municipal Corporation of Cape Charles Harbor ably hosts a unique mix of commercial, industrial, and recreational vessels in its protective basin boasting 95 slips, 4 T- Heads ranging from 60 to 120 feet and 1200 feet of dock space. Whether for work or play, patrons enjoy access to the greatest fishing areas on the Chesapeake Bay. Visitors can watch watermen haul in and off-load their daily catches of blue crabs, horse shoe crabs, conchs, fish, clams, shark and scallops. The Harbor’s state-of-the-art public boat ramps are enjoyed by both individual pleasure and sport fishing crafts as well as the charter boats that run expeditions daily for cobia, striped bass, flounder, drum, spade, trout and croaker. Transient vessels appreciate the Harbor for its deep-water slips and docks and short walk to the re-emerging Historic Town.
