They threw a wonderful food and music on the night of Harbor Fest fireworks. All the help is great, surprised the office hr. we from 9 am to 4 pm. And i did have a theft of my power plug converter! WE will go back again, yes.

Always a great time at Tidewater Yacht. I have been using their services for years whether attending an event in Norfolk/Portsmouth or passing through. The people are great and the facilities are well kept. Highly recommended!

Excellent facility. Great reception for slip holders during Norfolk Harbor Fest. A very busy time for the staff, and as a result, responsiveness to arrivals was lacking in communications, information flow, and attention to boater needs while docking.

The location was perfect, the service was less than stellar. Prior to arrival I hailed the marina by VHF, and received permission to enter. There was no one available to assist me dockside. No big deal. When I arrived at the slip, the finger pier was muddy and n anchor and old rope were blocking access to tie up to the piling. Still not a big deal. However, the bathrooms coded locks so my expectation was that they would be clean. I arrived on Friday afternoon and the bathrooms were filthy, we had reservations until Sunday and during that window the bathrooms were never cleaned. While I was a transient on this visit,I grew up in Portsmouth and were friends with the original owners, yes I’m that old. Really disappointed in the attention to detail. The $95.00/ day fee is a little steep for this experience. I would not recommend at this time.

Another great stay at TYM for Harborfest! It was disappointing that the pool was closed, but the staff was amazing. We really enjoyed the live music, food, and drinks that were provided. Special shout to to Curt! Thank you. Brian ("Jo-Nell").

Great location. Easy access to go across to Norfolk if needed. Great views.

Came in after closing time (4PM) and dock master and crew hung around an extra hour to help us get secured.

This is one of the best marinas I have stayed at on the eastern seaboard. The staff is most accommodating and every time I come through Portsmouth, I am sure to stay at Tidewater. Consummate professionals for the cruising and yachting industry.

If every marina treated their customers the way that Tidewater treats their customers, we would all enjoy boating more.

We made a last minute decision to splurge on a dock over anchoring out. Entry to the marina was easy and we were directed to an excellent slip. Right next to the bathrooms which were clean and cheery. This is something we have not seen as much as of late. The dock staff were welcoming and very professional helping with docking as we arrived and departed. The restaurant on site, “Fish and Slips” for the need. Hot chicken wings were HOT! Some confusion with the involuntary 18% gratuity added to the bill but that was worked out. Overall, an excellent place to stay. I would give it 5 stars but for the ongoing construction and difficulty is skirting around it all. Next year, when we return I would not be surprised to give it 5-stars.

Great floating docks and wide transient slips. Clean restrooms and showers that could use services more often to maintain paper products. Very helpful dock master / manager Rick who has excellent knowledge of the area.

Marina facilities are up to date and we'll kept. Staff are helpful and friendly. Only negative was the laundry.....a long walk from our dock and expensive.

The staff was fantastic, even gave us ride to a nearby pharmacy. Great stopping place on our trip.

Great Marina!! Rick the dock master/manager was amazing and really helped us out. First intercostal trip from FL to NJ. He was so helpful and kept in touch with us on our way into marina. Was willing to stay hours after marina closed to gas us up, and even offered to pick us up anything we needed at the store on his way into work in the morning. Outstanding customer service that you rarely find anywhere. The restrooms showers were well lit and clean. The restaurant was great and open until 11pm which was nice after getting in late and still able to grab a nice dinner. Staff was pleasant and food was good, nice view Accross the water of Norfolk. We will most definitely be stoping in our way back in the fall. Rick even texted to make sure we made it to our final destination because we left the following morning in bad weather. Great all around!!!

Dockmaster and staff were very helpful and attentive. We stayed on a floating dock, which was nice. Restaurant on site was good. Restrooms above average. Interesting town within walking distance. The ferry to Norfolk is out of commission.
