    Way overpriced for what you get at $3/FT. Bathrooms signs stated cleanliness was not guaranteed and they weren’t that clean. Nice wide docks and helpful dock hands. We were put in slip B10 and with a 10 MPH Southwest wind our 40000 Lb boat was like a bobber. We had to move slips. The sea wall is not protecting the entrance side of the marina. Next to the marina is a very large area that used to be a railroad yard. It has danger signs due to debris and an environmental issue. This makes for a very long walk just to get the dog to a safe spot.

    Stayed here for Thanksgiving 2020. Off season price $1.75 a foot. Great location right next to town with shops, restaurants, pubs an most importantly, pizza. Great place to explore.

    Cape Charles Town Harbor is very nice. Stayed here in early July 2020. There were plenty of available slips on the floating dock. Didn't use it, but there is a restaurant at the marina. It is a short walk to downtown or beach. The whole town is pleasant for walking.

    Super convenient to town and you are paying for that at $2.25 per ft. Nice floating docks... BUT...NO LAUNDRY, NO WIFI, NO BIKES or CAR and Bathhouse is open to the public during the day. If all you want is convenient access to town then this is fine. Especially since the other marina is even more expensive at $3 foot. Staff is nice and helpful

    Nice marina with helpful staff. Close to town with restaurants, shops, candy store, ice cream, distillery, etc. New bulkhead sea wall helps to mitigate the western exposure and cuts down on wave/wake action. I just wish there was a pool!

    Friendly marina staff. Good floating docks and clean restrooms. Close to town with tourist attractions (restaurants, icecream, shops, brewery, etc.)

    Nice marina, floating docks. Just don't come on the weekend. Music blasts from Shanty's Restaurant until 1am. Good Luck sleeping.

    Great marina to stop in and walk into town to enjoy a old small town trying to reinvent itself as an artist colony. Fantastic public beach and great restaurants and ice cream shops. NOT well protected from the West.

    New marina in good condition. There is a swell that works into the bay that makes the marina work a little but nothing too bad. WiFi is weak. The town is a great feature of the stay and we were told gets busy. The marina is adjacent to a bar and grill and on our stay (Friday night) was noisy and rowdy until closinfg after 12:00.

    Agree with Bob. In winter 2017/2018 they did major maintenance on the floating docks. We have stopped in twice so far this year - we like the town - plenty for the Scouts to do. Folks in town and at the marina are very nice and helpful. Wifi seems to be working fine now.

    Nice newly updated Marina with floating docks. Strong wifi signal but super slow bandwidth. Nice bathrooms and showere. Close to town and Shantys Seafood restaurant is right next to the Marina. Channel is well marked with 2 legs having range markers. Would give a 5 star rating if wifi was decent.
