We ducked into Bohemia Vista marina unexpectedly to ride out a gale that was forecast, and were pleasantly surprised. The approach is a little nerve wracking because the Bohemia River is very shallow - in fact the chart showed 7' - 8' while our fathometer read as low as 4.7' in places. But Chris talked us in and it turned out fine. We tied up to a clean, sturdy concrete floating slip with help from Chris and a dockhand. Once secured we found somewhat basic but nice and clean facilities: a clubhouse with big-screen TV with comfortable couch & chairs, 1 washer & dryer, and 1 bathroom with shower. As I say, sort of basic but clean & well maintained. There's strong WiFi throughout the marina and Chris lives on site and is always available to help with any problems. No restaurants on site or within walking distance, but several will deliver here. Overall a pleasant enough experience and we would stay here again.
This marina was awesome. It has beautiful views of the Bohemia. It is peaceful and tranquil and It has the best staff between Chris the manager and Renee the assistant manager and Tim they run one of the best marina's we have ever stayed at. The marina is spotless, the facilities are cleaned daily and everyone is attentive to your boating needs. They all know how to treat boaters! I would highly recommend staying here for the comfort and for the convenience to Chesapeake City. We stayed for 7 days and didn't want for anything. We will be returning as soon as possible.
Awesome marina. Many new slips and well-maintained gear/buildings. VERY friendly and helpful dock staff to guide and tie up your boat- and help get your systems up and running. Nice vibe at this marina. Shallow approach for bigger boats (5-6ft) - so watch your navigation!
