Reviews for Angler's Marina
Safe harbor after knockdown in tornado, 2016-06-29
Captain: , Annapolis (10)

After getting our ass handed to us in a pop up tornado and having to cut our headsail....we found refuge in Lewes at Anglers. We called the owner JB about 50 times coming in from the storm due to being so gun shy and he was surly at best on the phone -- but upon arrival he was tremendously helpful and empathetic of our boat injuries. Canal whips at a good clip and getting into a slip tested my skipper. But once in and tied, an easy lovely walk to downtown. Water and electric hookups are present but bring your long cords to reach shore power since a low MLW will have you docked away from the source. Bathroom access but grab the key before 6. Jimmy the engine mechanic is a hoot and a half but grab him before he takes off at 3 - he helped us nurse our diesel back to health. And don't call him "sir". Currents grab you on the way out so take a second to plan tossing lines.

Working marina, good for fuel and pump-out, not optimum for transients, 2011-08-11
Captain: , Londontowne, MD (470)

We went to Angler's Marina from the Lewes City Dock to get a pump-out... and that worked well. The marina hosts a large charter fleet, and appears to be about the only game in town for diesel and for a pump-out station suitable for larger boats. The owner, J. B. Walsh, was friendly and they were reasonably efficient. The slip just adjacent to the lift-well isn't large,but visitors can dock with their waste discharge on the travel-lift side, and the piles are sufficient to hold the boat even if not completely within the slip. The locals enjoying the shade -- with a couple of active labs chasing tennis balls -- were also friendly, and pointed out that the city's Canalfront Marina actually has a less expensive pump-out. (Our OAL and beam makes us too large for that, but I appreciated that they would volunteer the info.)

not the best, 2010-10-21
Captain: , Severna Park, MD (461)

Stopped here on our way around the Delmarva. Staff surly and not terribly helpful; facilities marginal.

Small town friendly, 2010-01-06
Captain: , Florida (48)

Great stop at the mouth of the Delaware Bay, especially taking the outside route on the ICW to the Cheseapeake. Nice, friendly and helpful. We stopped for fuel and stayed for a several hours to have breakfast and drop off ond of our crew. Fuel docks, restaurants nearby. Store has a pretty good stock of marine and fishing equipment for a small store. Recommended stopover.
