Stayed on a mooring for 5 nights. Fantastic location right next to Washington DC. Close to everything -- metro station, Safeway grocery, tons of restaurants and the National Mall. Dinghy dock is five minutes away located between the Y and Z docks where the full time, live-aboards are docked. It's behind a locked gate so seemed very secure. Free laundry was a bonus. Only downside was that there was a lot of construction going on with pounding machinery right on the wharf. Also, it's right under the helicopter flight path so you'll be hearing the whirr of helicopter blades quite frequently. We'd stay here again.

Bathroom facilities are pathetic. Located on small boat with only two unisex stalls. For the money paid per slip, rates no stars. Marina and slips were fine, but the bathroom facilities were terrible.

The dock people were very helpful. Power cord available at the slip. Slips not easily identifiable when approaching from the water. Concrete floating slips were large and clean. For price paid, had the following issues: ONE portable bathhouse not acceptable for number of slips. One separate toilet and one shower room with toilet was not air-conditioned and showerhead had to be held to keep water flowing. Faucet difficult to regulate water temp. No WiFi as advertised. Need to take a cab or Uber to get to second set of bath facilities and office at sister (Old Gangplank) Marina.

Great place, enjoyed our time there. The dinghy dock service is superb with two locations, one very close to the fish market. We were on the moorings. Very pleasant.
