Skipjack Cove Marina Resort Offers Family-Friendly Fun on the Sassafrass

Skipjack Cove Marina is located on the Sassafras River, about seven miles from the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. Skipjack Cove is a family-oriented, pet-friendly premier marina in a lovely and protected cove, with peaceful anchorages and small beaches to enjoy. We love that the water here is fresh which means good swimming and no sea nettles. Even better, Skipjack Cove Marina is nestled within 18 acres of scenic woods and shoreline so that guests can enjoy the very best of nature, as well as a number of exceptional amenities. This is truly a prime destination marina on the Chesapeake Bay!

The marina boasts 365 slips (both open and covered), as well as a number of amenities. Guests will enjoy playing in an olympic size swimming pool, a children's pool, a tennis court, a basketball court, volleyball and picnic and BBQ areas. Skipjack Cove also has large restroom and shower facilities, including 28 separate tiled showers with private heads, and laundry facilities. Boaters who need to fuel up and re-stock will be pleased with the fuel dock and a ship's store on-site. Boat service is also available.

Skipjack Cove Marina is also home to Signals, a charming and relaxing Eastern Shore restaurant and bar overlooking the beautiful Sassafras River. Dining inside or outside on the deck offers scenic views of the River and Cecil County farmland. Book your slip today on Snag-A-Slip!

Great overnight at Skipjack Cove to see the Blues Keepers Band. Great day and evening at Signals bar and outdoor deck. Alex and Aiden were great dock hands and welcoming. Highly recommended!

The marina wasn’t open for the season yet. A person working on the dock helped us dock but was surprised to see us.

A Note from the Marina:

Unfriendly even on the phone. No assistance of any kind given, in fact we did not see a single SkipJack Cove employee. We arrived at 3:45 in the afternoon on a Thursday and requested fuel before going to the slip. We were told the fuel dock was closed, so we asked Dawn if we could overnight at fuel dock because we needed to get going first thing in the morning. No, thats not allowed we were told. So we docked and tied up ourselves and departed on our own without purchasing fuel.

Goodness Gracious! We landed in the middle of a Luau Festival and Polynesian Dance Party! We were on a 700 mile east coast trawler delivery, and ducked into the Sassafrass River to get out of a nasty east wind on the Bay, finding the marinas or a quiet anchorage to be far from the Bay. But, we were delighted to find a hard working dock hand to help us dock in the strong winds, and a party for slip owners - and they accorded us the privileges of slip owners for having docked there. It seems especially well run for the home port boats, and we were fortunate to find a transient slip.

Large and active marina with a long, easily accessed fuel and pump out dock. Marina has a pleasant staff with some lovely and well maintained amenities, including large (very clean) restrooms and showers, a good sized laundry, a nice clubhouse with a bit of exercise equipment and a great view of the river, and a very pleasant Caribbean themed dock bar and restaurant with a lot of covered outdoor seating. We transiented there for a few days during some foul weather off season and the staff was helpful and friendly. The pool looks lovely as well, but not at these temperatures. The cruise up the Sassafras, as another reviewer noted, is worth the trip. It's one of the most stunning stretches of unspoiled (and deep enough) water we've encountered. Will definitely be back.

I was a transient here for a night - my first overnight away from my home port. I was a bit perplexed by the number of empty slips in this very reasonably priced, and appealing well-kept marina. I can only attribute it to the time and motoring commitment required to reach this part of the Sassafras. That said, the cruise up the river was beautiful, but not something I'd want to do every time I wanted to hit the bay. This would also lend itself to more motor yacht traffic than sailboat traffic. The fuel dock and office are at the river’s northern bank, and the sign designating the marina as you approach is large and clear, which is good because this area is crowded with marinas. I found the fairways to be ample size for easy maneuvering and backing into the slip. The dock hand was helpful and answered many of my “first-time ‘away-from -home-port’ stay” questions. Once you are tied up after a long motor up the Sassafras, the hilltop pool is not to be missed. Spectacular view of the Sassafras, many tables with umbrellas, lounge chairs, and the bathhouse is adjacent to the pool. The bathhouse provides private rooms with toilet, sink and stall showers in each. Very clean, very nice and very air-conditioned. There is a large picnic area with grills (since I believe they don’t allow grilling on the boats near the docks). There is on site restaurant, but we didn’t dine there. The setting is nicely landscaped and shows their efforts to create the “resort” setting they advertise. The vibe while we were there was notably laid-back. (it was a Thursday in August). The area in general seems welcoming to anchoring and your dinghy to shore, since I saw many sailboats anchored out. If there was anything to gripe about, it would be the “unwalkability” of the area in general – not a fault of the marina. We couldn’t easily meander our way from this marina to a restaurant at a nearby marina via the water’s edge without some acrobatics. You could walk on the street, but then you lost the view of the water. A fee-for-service water taxi would have been nice.If I was planning a season where I intended to really explore the Sassafras on my weekend cruises, this would be at the top of my short-list as a spot to get a seasonal slip. I’d say that its location in relation to the bay is distant so if you are looking for a spot that provides quick access to the upper bay, this isn’t it. The scenic cruise up the Sassafras makes the excursion worthwhile and I would encourage it at least once.
