    Great little marina. Nice floating dock, though floating finger pier is only about 20 feet. Need to also tie to outer pilings. bit the 20 feet of finger pier allows dock hands to provide good help. Onancock is a small, pleasant town to wander.

    Great small town marina. New floating docks, great staff and nice bathhouse and laundry. Slip #12 is all the way in next to the steel bridge (less than 20' from the slip). If the wind is blowing up you up the creek, you have one shot to get into that slip or you will be laying side to a bridge

    Excellent facilities and well maintained. Issue had was that they book via DockWa so when tried for reservation, would not permit my draft (6'). Talking with Manager, have berths which support (Floating 1-2-3) and the bulkhead. Moored no issues at close to low tide but depth approaching piers was pretty shallow. Excellent facilities and well worth making the effort.
    Power and internet excellent.

    Lovely small marina with friendly, helpful staff. Reservations recommended if during a busy time. Marina was recently updated. Walk a short distance to the center of town with several restaurant options. The Charlotte Hotel has a consistently excellent restaurant and bar. The marina even offers a list of local residents who offer assistance to boaters with transportation or other needs. Delightful.

    Was pleasantly surprised to find this unique little marina on the Eastern Shore. They were nothing but friendly, helped tie, free laundry, good fuel. A short walk into this little "burg." Janet's is a must stop for breakfast or lunch. We left this morning on our way to Crisfield, only when we entered the bay we encountered 25 kt winds and 4 plus seas. Weather guessers, don't ya just love them. We turned around and went back and were greeted as if we never left. On an aside Mallards, although food was good as was service, prices were a bit high. I had two crab cakes on a small bed of lettuce for $25.00. I was not a happy boater.

    Super nice Deb Melcher, the Assistant Harbor Master, couldn't do enough to help. About 4.5 miles from bay. Well marked channel. Small and short finger piers caused some problems during low tide. Rumor that town will replace with floating docks next year. Walking distance to several restaurants. Try Janet's for breakfast and lunch.

    Friendly and competent staff. Well marked channel. Excellent fuel facilities. Ramp is 14 ft wide with good straight-back run-in, but it is fairly short and may give problems at low tide. Parking for trailers immediately adjacent to the ramp. There is also a very good restaurant right across the parking lot.
    Very good dedicated kayak and dinghy dock with several scenic streams off the main creek.

    Very friendly staff led by Ruth the Harbor Master. Fixed docks with small finger piers. Free laundry. New dock office with updated showers/bathrooms. Pump out and fuel available. Some slips have limited depth. Recommend calling ahead for reservations as slips are limited to 16. Channel is well marked and carries no less that 12 feet all the way in. Gravel barges use the. Handel so it's well maintained. Would give 5 stars if the wifi was more dependable.
