They are working hard to make improvements. New decking on docks, electrical pylons, etc. John the dockmaster is great. On a summer weekend they had live music at the onsite bar, and the restaurant was even open for breakfast. Short walk to West Marine and a booze store.

Nice marina. Took a while to get my assigned slip once we arrived and it turned out there was a boat in it. We had to pick another slip as no one from the marina was there, answered their texts or messages.

A bit noisy with all the fishing charters early in the am. Bathroom and shower dirty and old. Pool area could of been better maintained all pool umbrellas were broken.

We arrived at 1:30 and were unable to contact dockmaster. We circled for a while, then just picked a spot on the t-head in front of another boat who had had the same experience. Frustrating. Later we spoke to him in the rest..the spot we picked was where he wanted us. He was working around heavy equipment and couldn't hear. Restrooms are clean, but small. Two showers in each restroom.

Good dockage, but the bathrooms & showers need work

by Eric W. - Verified user on May 18, 2023
Good service with a convenient location in Solomons Island at a reasonable price.
Marina Response:
Thank you Eric... It was a pleasure to have you visit.

It was safe enough, baths need to be upgraded. Friendly
Marina Response:
The bathrooms we agree leave something to be desired... We have made many improvements with the new piers, the pool and the Restaurant... We will get there. Thanks for your understanding.

Nice, quiet & conveniently located. Owner was headed out of town but no prob making arrangements via Dockwa. No deckhands about to help tie up but we regularly tie up by ourselves anyway so no biggie. On-site restaurant serving fresh seafood. Docks in the process of being rebuilt- ours had new stringers, decking, elec & water hookups installed. Bathrooms not fancy but very Very clean.

by Steve S. - Verified user on Sep 04, 2022
Location good and other boat owners, including the charter captains were great, but docks in poor repair and being poorly repaired, pool rough and bathrooms marginal. Will not be a first choice when next in town.

by JT T. on Jul 24, 2022
Marina was clean. Lots of upgrades. My crew liked the Anglers Restaurant on site. Will be back.

I just found out the rate is different for the weekend. So my previous comments can be ignored.

by Marilyn S. - Verified user on Apr 02, 2022
Great place. Enjoyed our stay. More of a local marina than a transient destination. Current management has made significant progress in developing transient business.

Great for the price. Will certainly be back

We arrived two days after the big flood in October but marina was in good shape. Great price for Solomons @ $1.50ft. John, the dock master, was very helpful and accommodating on Sunday when we arrived. Our only problem was not being able to hook up to electric on our pier bc of upgrades that weren’t compatible with our old (1981) boat; we kept tripping their circuit breaker. John offered to move us to another pier (which hadn’t been upgraded yet) but we were already tied up and only staying two nights. Small bathroom and shower; laundry room. I gave it a 3 but would go back for the hospitality and great rate. The 5 star Anglers Restaurant on the premises!

We kept our trawler at Beacon from June through October. Overall it was a very good experience. The other boaters on our dick were friendly, welcoming and helpful. John, the harbor master was accommodating and easy to work with. The marina is located with walking distance of everything; West Marine, bank, restaurants, liquor store and shopping. There is a grocery and hardware store close by as well. We will be back in the spring.
