Ring the bell and help us in welcoming National Harbor Marina to the Snag-A-Slip family!

If you’re boating in the Potomac, be sure to stop at National Harbor Marina! National Harbor Marina is located on the Maryland side of the Potomac River in National Harbor, Maryland. The docks are located across the river from downtown D.C. and the marina is also directly across from the Virginia coastline. The premier locale of this marina allows guests to visit Maryland, D.C., and Virginia all within a day if they so desire!

National Harbor Marina

National Harbor Marina is a first class facility with state of the art floating docks, a variety of slip sizes with five foot wide, full length finger piers, and alongside dockage up to 150ft. Slips range from 35 feet to 150 feet. The marina has a depth of 9 ft at low tide and each dock has electricity ranging from 30, 50, and 100-single phase amp service. There is also a grocery, ship store, laundry, ice, and shower on the premise. You’ll never have to leave the marina!

...But we definitely recommend you do so you can explore!

The National Harbor area has undergone a variety of changes over the years and many of its best highlights are fairly recent developments. When docking at the National Harbor Marina, guests will have immediate access to luxury, from the state of the art docks and piers to the restaurants, shops, and hotels in the surrounding area. Popular Attractions include the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, the Capital Ferris Wheel, MGM National Harbor Casino, and my personal favorite, the Peeps and Company Store! There are over 160 shops, 40 restaurants, and incredible views and everything is in walking distance from the National Harbor Marina. If you find yourself wanting to avoid the walk, the marina provides transportation throughout the city.
