    Nice floating dock with very short finger piers. Friendly helpful dock hands. Bull Island Brewery is right at the piers and is a great place to enjoy some beer. Enterprise rentals is right next to the marina. Lots of great places to walk a dog and a dog park is one block away.

    The attraction of this marina is the location close to downtown Hampton with many fine restaurants. The Virginia Air and Space Museum is not to be missed. It also has an iMax.

    They have one washer and one dryer at $2 per load. The fingers are only 1/2 length and you will need help getting in since you’re coming in at right angles to the river current.

    If you stay often, then consider the option to join their cruising club which lowers the price to 1$/ft with every fourth day free.

    Hampton public pier...Dock staff is excellent! Laundry facilities are decent and access to pool is nice. However pool needs some umbrellas and some renovation. Love the dog park but needs to have water available. Love the floating dock. Great boaters garden!! Great location!!!!

    We had a great experience mooring up here and visiting the Downtown Hampton area. A lot going on between the restaurants located right on the pier, the music, and all of the local art stores and the historic Queen St.

    Nothing fancy but clean, accessible, and right in front of Bull Island Brewing Co. Great beer and good food. This is where our boating adventure started.

    If you want a luxury marina with a swimming pool, this is not the place for you. However, if you are a self-sufficient cruiser, and want a sturdy floating dock within walking distance of the entire downtown, you ought to stay here. The wi-fi is the best we have encountefred so far. There is an Enterprise car rental less than half a block away. The electricity is good. If you stop in Hampton, I recommend the Venture restaurant downtown. It has a diverse menu, the most expensive entree was $18 (sauteed scallops--delicious), and delicious creme broulee.

    Another attraction not to miss is the Mariners Museum in Newport News. This means that you have to rent a car for the day, but the museum only charfges a $1 admission fee, so it's worth it. This museum specializes in the revolutionary war, and is the best maritime museum we have seen on this entire trip.

    Another not-to-miss attraction is the museum at Hampton University, immediately across the river from the marina. You can walk to this museum, or take the free loaner bikes from the marina. This is free, exceptionally well done, and a pleasant place to visit.

    We will definitely be coming back here.

    Great marina with floating docks and helpful staff. A short walk to many nice bars and restaurants. Well marked fairway after you pass the bridge tunnel. Would definitely stay again.
