Fall is closing in, but it is still boating time on the Chesapeake Bay! If you’re already planning your trip down the ICW, start in Maryland and head south with the new marinas added to our family in September.
Hilton Head Harbor RV & Marina
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
Hilton Head is the ideal boaters paradise we want to visit during the colder months up north. Hilton Head Harbor RV & Marina provides easy access to the open water of the Atlantic Ocean. The marina can accommodate 101 vessels up to 45ft and has a wide variety of amenities like fuel, 30/50 AMP power pedestals, paddleboard/kayak rentals, WiFi, and a fully stocked ship store. We recommend you visit the great restaurant on-site, Sunset Grille, but the marina is within close proximity to other amazing beaches, shops, and restaurants. Don’t forget to bring your furry sailor-this marina is pet friendly!
Severn Yachting Center
This beautiful marina just off the Chesapeake Bay in the protected Severn River. There are 100+ fixed floating docks that can accommodate vessels up to 120 feet for you to tie up and enjoy, a fuel station, pump-out, and a full stocked ship store! Severn Yachting Center boasts a great new swimming pool and a Trex deck overlooking the river and the picnic/grill areas. Hayes, VA is in close proximity to Busch Gardens and Historic Williamsburg for people looking to get off the water and explore the area. With history, entertainment, restaurants, and shops, you will never be bored in Hayes, VA!
Smithfield Station Marina
Smithfield, VA is a beautiful town right off the James River, full of history and sights. The marina accommodates vessels up to 130 feet with a low tide water depth of 6 feet in deep water slips. Check out the award-winning on-site restaurant and dockside bar, The Restaurant at Smithfield Station. We won’t brag, but the “best restaurant for crabcakes, for the whole family, and for a gourmet meal” is now part of our family! The lovely history of Smithfield will surely wow visitors, but if that doesn’t do it, the marina definitely will. Book your slips today to enjoy the beautiful on-site hotel, swimming pool, and more!
Chesapeake Yacht Club
Shady Side, Maryland
We love Shady Side, and Chesapeake Yacht Club takes the prize for the area! Just a short boat ride from Annapolis, Kent Narrows, Tilghman Island, and other great locations allow boaters to enjoy everything the Chesapeake Bay has to offer. With 142 slips and a gated property, this marina is the perfect base to come back to after a long day on the water. The pool is perfect for those looking to escape the heat, but as fall sets in and it gets colder, enjoy the onsite clubhouse with formal/casual dining, pub, lounge, and kids area! There’s definitely something for everyone in Shady Side.
Key Largo Harbor Marina
Key Largo, Florida
Key Largo Harbor Marina is located in the protected Port Largo canal of Key Largo, Florida. Any vessel up to 65ft must visit this amazing destination in the Florida Keys. With boat rentals, fishing supplies, fuel, a convenience store and more, the marina has everything you need to relax or head out on the water for some Gulf Coast fishing! Not only does this marina have great amenities, but they also have a full service maintenance yard. From boat storage to repairs or bottom painting, this marina has it all! Book your slips today and go enjoy the Keys!
Bristol Harbor Marina
Panama City, Florida
Bristol Harbor Marina is located in the beautiful Panama City, Florida! It is the perfect marina for your journey down the ICW this fall, nestled in the protected waters of the Emerald Coast and within sight of the Gulf of Mexico. The Marina recently upgraded their fixed docks, and with 50/20 AMP power, pump-out, and WiFi, you’ll never have to leave your boat! Downtown Panama City is just steps away, so if you want to explore all restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Catch a bite at Bayou Joe’s and maybe you’ll see some dolphins off the docks-don’t miss your opportunity to have a great stop along the ICW!
