Excellent guidance getting in and out, and great bringing in Delaware bay. But if a walk if you're at the end of the dock. Very helpful, especially if Foster is there.

Well trained crew! They talk you all the way into a very narrow channel and the assistance with docking is amazing to watch. The 4pm briefing on weather and the Delaware Bay is not to be missed. Small town with restaurant choice within an easy walk.

Lots of good advice from Tim, spent two days on dock, met up with many Loopers. A gpx file showing how to enter/exit would be nice. Great small town, went to St. George for a music festival, great ice-cream, lots of fun taking bike along the river. Great advice on boating Delaware Bay.

A little shoal at the entrance to the old canal right off the Bay. Tim gives good directions into the marina and assists with tying up to the floating docks, all side ties. They spin the boat around with lines and current assist. Bathrooms could be updated. Nice sun deck area. Tim gives a daily briefing at 16:00 about navigating down the Delaware Bay the next day.

I wouldn't want to attempt a crossing of the Delaware Bay without first attending Tim's 4p briefing (even though others have done it without problems). Yes, the entry to the canal the marina is in can be tricky but the directions the staff provides is spot on. Need groceries? Instacart delivers. Restaurants, liquor store and ice cream parlor are all within easy walking distance. (Crabby Dick's has some of the best cream of crab soup I've ever had and I bought a quart to go!) The marina store has one of the largest selection of boat products I've seen for a marina of this size in addition to gift shop items.

Great staff. Very precise with entering the channel & docking. If you are doing the Loop don't miss the 4 pm briefing to traverse Delaware Bay.

Tim, the owner, helps you tie up, warp your boat for easy departure, gives you the pro and con of leaving the next day, at his daily 4 pm Delaware river and bay forecast, knows every restaurant in town and has a great marine shop. Its a small marina, but convenient for the trip to Lewes or Cape May. Diesel prices are good.

Docking at this marina definitely requires contact with the staff while still in Delaware Bay and careful maneuvering on the way in. Other posts have more detail.

The marina staff is a lot of fun. Handling the boat on the way in I got a kick out of the banter with the marina owner/harbormaster and appreciated the help from the dock hands. The captains meeting was invaluable and resulted in us changing our next 2 days travel plans to avoid areas of the intracoastal waterway that had become too shallow.

The "piesta de resistance" was the Christmas card from the marina. It's the only one I've ever gotten!

(The town is showing its age, but it doesn't lack for character.)
