The Marina also has a full-service yard and parts department complete with a 60-Ton Marine Travelift for haul outs.

Guests looking to relax and have some fun won't be disappointed, either. Tidewater Yacht Marina is home to 757 Crave, a restaurant and bar serving casual fare and awesome drinks. There is also a floating pool and party deck where guests can lounge and mingle.

Very nice marina but substandard bathrooms. No plugs to blow dry hair and no hooks in the shower area for clothes. Would think a marina of this caliber would have nicer amenities in bathroom.

Then Again Power 36 ft 3.0 ft

Tidewater Marina is in a great location in Portsmouth. It's so close to the historic downtown and waterfront area, and a terminus for the ferry that goes to and from Norfolk downtown. There are a lot of mega yachts here, but they are pretty well segregated from the smaller slips. Fairways are good size if you are our size! Fish and Slips restaurant is on-site, with good food and great view of the harbor. The reasons this is not a 5 are (1) fuel dock and pump out are difficult to get to and if you are not a large yacht, you have to climb up a ladder from your boat to the pier to fuel and pump and (2) we never did find the laundry room. There is pump out service at the slip by a 3rd party that must be scheduled and will only take 25 gals of black water at a time. (We have a 40 gal tank). The office will give you info on how to sign up for the pump outs. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Yes poor wifi, and the fairways are tight. But if you arrive late after hours look for a spot on the windward side of the westernmost finger pier. Just zip in against the wind, and hit reverse, no tricky maneuvering.

My 30 amp power was good. Staff was personable. Docks in good shape.

Tidewater Yacht Marina: Great marina that is well protected inside the break-water. Waterway Guide vessel stayed here 10/22 and was thoroughly impressed. The dock hands helped us secure our spot in our slip (always helpful). The Wi-Fi worked extremely well. We had a great meal at the restaurant, food and service was excellent. Restrooms were clean and in great condition.

Tidewater is a great marina. Good staff, great restaurant on site and clean facilities and docks. Across from Norfolk, you can ferry over to visit downtown Norfolk, or walk into Portsmouth for restaurants and shops. We stayed last fall on the way south.

Good stop. Good restaurant. Entrance a little tricky but worth the effort after being beat up on Chesapeake.

Invictus Power 55 ft 5.0 ft

Good location. Difficult in/out for our size due to narrow fairways. Low power (218v). Poor WiFi. Weekly rate is not much of a deal!
