We were taking on water from a shaft seal and we had a Cutlass bearing that was making noise on the starboard side of our catamaran,,, so they pulled us out fixed everything put us back in the water in one day. Fantastic service, highly recommend this company.

Stopped At Zahniser’s Marina to wait out a Nor’Easter. Not our first time here. Great marina, great staff and beautiful area. Marina has clean private shower rooms, laundry, shuttle to take you shopping at supermarket, West Marine, etc and loaner bicycles to use. Restaurant on location and very fast wifi.

Nearby marina refused to honor slip confirmation. Was able to stay here instead, and I would recommend it highly. Great facility and staff made this a wonderful stay.

Took a mooring with no regrets! Used the free bicycles to visit the nearby West Marine and explore the island. Had dinner at the on-site Dry Dock, which was remarkably good. All staff we encountered were very friendly and facilities were clean. Has a nice, park-like setting, even though it is obviously a working boatyard.

Magic Power 36 ft 4.0 ft

Although this is a very good marina with good services, I was very disappointed with the way they charged us. In the 15 months moving around the loop (this is our second time), this is the only marina that "measures" your boat from the bow pulpit to the stern overhang. This added another 8 feet to Magic and at a new Dockwa rate of $2.00/foot it added $16.00 to my bill. I wonder if they bill for bottom jobs the same way?? Aside from the above, this was a good marina.

Zanhisers Solomons. Marina staff was outstanding and friendly, really made our visit enjoyable. Sandwiches at pool bar were great. Onsite restaurant, Dry Dock is outstanding. Would rate this excellent except if you're traveling with a number of boats, you'll be spread out an various T heads as dock space is limited.

Great place for visit, long term slip, service, and facilities (pool, restaurant, bathrooms and service). If you need something fixed, this is the place. Very reliable, friendly and helpful staff. Quantum sails on site.

Once again, Zahniser's did not disappoint. We called the morning of our arrival and asked for a reservation. They accommodated our last minute request and assigned us a T head. Since we were arriving late, there were reservation signs on the pilings! Talk about customer service. The facilities at Zahniser's is a top notch marina. Clean, squared away and always willing to help. Thanks, again.

Zahniser's is a favorite of ours. Have been going for years. We just took our 60' classic yacht there for an evening. Great facility and a superb restaurant. Docking is a breeze and there were plenty of hands to help us get tied up. Several of their staff dropped by to say hello (they worked on Adonia last winter.) One of the best on the bay for service, facilities and know-how. Thanks, again, for taking care of us.
