Our slip was perfectly located near the facilities and out of the storm force winds. Perry (dockmaster) was extremely helpful from first contact until we departed. We have been sailing the bay for 15 years, and rarely received this much assistance. I would highly recommend this marina.

Great Location, great service. Towed into marina after a mechanical failure in my drive train. Unexpected stay until I arranged for a service yard to take OUTWARD. Dockmaster, Perry, very helpful. You should put in cleats at all slips. Not so easy tying up to pilings. Also, showers in heads need floor mats in changing areas.

Always a great trip for us. We love visiting Cambridge. A little sad to see how quiet thing are due to pandemic, but we found several opportunities to dine and shop to support this great community. It’s a great marina for baiters with dogs/pets. The park is lovely and all but one person was friendly towards us and our dogs - a neb nose woman with two large rescue dogs who insisted on coming over to our dogs to harass us and tell us her dogs can draw blood! The dockmaster’s are always so helpful and the bathhouse always clean and tidy.

ALLEZ! Power 50 ft 5.0 ft

Dock Master Mike signed us in onboard, Rates reasonable and we stayed 30 days July 2019 on T-Head of E-Piet. Our 50 ft trawler was many times and unexpectedly rolled VIOLENTLY and slammed against pilings with six 10x26 fenders out horizontal on pilings. ALL WAKES on Chop Tank River Roll right down the fairway with no wave attenuation at all from the big floating dock surrounding this marina. The crab boats going in to Cambridge Creek to by wide open throttle and start their day at 4:00 A.M. The sailboats also rocked as bad but are tied and centered in their slips: Will give Marina 3 stars due to VIOLENT rolling conditions. WI-FI not working at marina or even in town Library
