Under staffed & hectic. Caitlin, the only staff there, was awesome. She handled the office, fuel pumps & docks like a pro. She's a keeper!
I was a first time transient and couldn't have been more pleased with the friendly, courteous service and the facilities. We arrived at the harbor entrance at around 1730 and I ran aground just inside the first day markers and the Owner/Dockmaster Jacqui Ruse and her son came out to see if they could assist which IMHO was well beyond the normal service. Once we got to the pier, we had help getting tied up and connecting shore power. Jacqui provided a brief sheet form the marina that described the facilities at the marina as well as the local area. The marina facilities included WIFI, 24 hour lounge with large screen TV and coffee, and access to clean, well appointed bathroom and shower facilities, and use of the marinas courtesy SUV, fuel (diesel and gasoline) 30 and 50 amp power and water. Since we needed fuel, we were allowed to remain at the fuel dock until morning and she arrived early to unlock the diesel pump to get us on our way. There is a full service boatyard next to the marina. Other than the grounding, we had a great stay and would strongly recommend it as a stopover marina or protected anchorage.
beware of this marina,I stopped in there due to an emergency, I asked for a technician to check out my charging system,Tom turned up,he removed the alterator, said it was U/S (true) then waited 5 days for them to supply a new one at just under $400, this was the wrong one,so I sourced one on the internet for $80, plus next day delivery,I fitted this myself,but the engine still not starting , on further inspection the bus bar had been completely slackened off/sabotaged,I eventually sorted out the problem myself, when I came to pay the marina, they gave me a bill for $650, so I questioned this with the owner, who did not want to know, and told me to sort it out with the office boy Matt who when I took it up with him started ranting and raving like something demented, so use these people at your peril, I was not the only one there at that time who had fallen foul of the rip off and incompetance of these greedy people. beware you have been warned
Deltaville Marina is a full service marina situated just minutes from the Chesapeake Bay. Located on Virginia's beautiful Jackson Creek, our serene resort-like setting offers boaters all the modern day amenities. We are open year round and provide slip holders and transient visitors a quiet family-oriented environment. Jackson Creek, positioned between the Rappahannock and Piankatank Rivers, offers two branches both with deep water and quiet, protected anchorages. The shore is lined with beautiful residential homes and osprey nests. We are approximately one mile to the quaint and historic town of Deltaville. This lovely Chesapeake Bay marina is just a hop, skip and a jump to the Deltaville Maritime Museum which offers a unique look at the area once considered the boat-building capital of the Bay!
