Additional info:


Pass the Cape Charles jetty on the starboard side (250 feet) and proceed northeast 032M to G1 CB passing it on your port side. Kings Creek Marina Harbormaster reported shoaling Aug 2011 and transit 8/21/11 showed good water taking to port. From G1 CB, proceed to course 020M and look for lit green marker. Pass G3 and at R4 make a hard right turn to 093M (east). Kings Creek Harbormaster reported shoaling on the green side, recommended remain on the red side either entering or leaving; transit 8/20/11 showed ~ 7 foot depth at low tide; stay to the red side and proceed slowly. Disregard R2 CI, the channel marker for Cherrystone Channel. From R4, continue on course 093M and pass between green #3A and red #4A. At G5 and R6 turn northeasterly 065M to G7 and R8. From R8 into the marina is a No Wake Zone. Pass R8 on your starboard side and turn to course 100M toward R10 (keep clear of docks on your port side). R10 to R12 course is 150M and from R12 to R14/ G15 is course 220M. You are now at Kings Creek Marina Lat. 37-16-45N, Long. 076-00-37W.

All courses are plotted in Magnetic (M) and may vary from boat to boat due to compass error.

There are new markers not shown on all navigation charts. All markers are new green and red, as of May 2013. They mark the dredged channel that is also marked with additional sticks and rubber floats to indicate the extent of the channel. You should enter this narrow channel at no-wake speed to insure that you stay in it, as immediately outside the channel is 1 foot deep at most at low tide.

Reviews for The Oyster Farm Marina at Kings Creek
Still the same, 2017-09-08
Captain: , Virginia Beach VA (33)

Stayed 9/4/2017. Same as last year. Why mess with a good thing when there's nothing worng. Fuel prices high but hurricanes are to fault not Osyter Cove. Love it.

Very nice marina, 2016-08-09
Captain: , Seaford, VA (1049)

Update August 2016: Still a great marina, entrance no problem if you follow the markers. However, once inside the small bay, continue to pay attention to the green daymark #11 and steer close to the docks. We followed a large vessel in that cut that corner and ran aground 100 feet from the fuel dock.
Restrooms are still the best on the Chesapeake Bay.

This was our destination for our very first cruise when we got our boat in 2010. What a great place. Beautiful setting, very nice wide piers, completely protected harbor with no wave or currents to worry about. Walking up and down every pier adds up to about a mile and a quarter walk. Ships store with all the basics.

Beach near the marina is the site of an old trash dump. Not a good place for swimming, but fun to walk along and pick up beach glass. The beach along Bay Avenue is the place to go.

Rent a golf cart (through the marina) for a drive around the old town. Otherwise it's about a one mile walk to downtown.

Nice facilities and friendly staff, 2016-07-27
Captain: , Hampton, VA (150)

We went to Kings Creek over July 4th weekend and had a great time. Docks were very nice, bath house was clean and people were very nice. Lots of transients in for the weekend so tons of activity on the docks. About a mile walk to the town which is just fine. Channel is well marked so just follow the markers and you should be fine. Markers on your chart plotter will be wrong so just use visual and ignore the charts.

King's Creek, 2016-07-22
Captain: , Lottsburg, Va (264)

We stayed one night, July 20, and my earlier comments still apply. 1st Class docks, clean rest room, no showers that I could see. Friendly staff. The entrance is still a little nerve racking but well marked and I never saw less than 6 1/2 feet at low tide. The on site resturant was very good.

The docks are 1st class and the access is not as bad as it looks. At dead low tide we crossed a few 6 1/2 foot spots, we draw 4 1/2 feet but we found 8- 10 feet depths for the most part. The dock hand was friendly and attentive. We ate at the on-site resturant and thought it was quite good. If you are a golfer, the 2 courses at nearby Bay Creek are beautiful and a good test, (if you figure out how to play the 18th on the Palmer Course, let me know). Fuel here was .25 higher than at the Cape Charles muni facility so we filled up there. The town, with in walking distance offers some shops and interesting homes.

fantastic experience , 2016-07-19
Captain: , Hampton, va (30)

We stayed two days when we only planned one. The staff is friendly and attentive, the facility is clean and well maintained. My wife said the showers were worth the stay. We will be back!

The Jewel of the Southern Chesapeake, 2016-07-18
Captain: , Kings Creek Marina (766)

The Oyster Farm Marina at Kings Creek is the little iconic marina / resort we spend all our lives looking for. It's like something from a private island in the Caribbean. All the charm and color of a well-planned facility with swimming pool, bike and golf cart rental, outstanding restaurant and convention facilities, and now a Tiki Bar at the end of %u201CC%u201D Pier. The %u201CC Pier%u201D is a special delight serving steamer buckets, beer, and quality live entertainment every Friday and Saturday evening from about 4:00pm to around 9:00pm. It is the %u201CCheers%u201D of the Eastern Shore. Nowhere will you find a bar you want to call your own more than this one. The restaurant is outstanding and has views of the setting sun the Eastern Shore is famous for. Events here include the annual Chesapeake Bay Buy Boat reunion, annual Waterman%u2019s Docking Competition, the annual %u201CShuck %u2018n Suck%u201D seafood blowout and more on all the national holidays. Access to two signature golf courses, and a lot more. If you don%u2019t have fun here, you didn%u2019t want to have fun.

Not ready for prime time, 2016-07-12
Captain: , Kent Island Maryland (110)

Staff was freindly and the marina was in good shape overall--floating docks and helpful dockhands. Decent fuel prices too. Pool is very small and was closed in July 7. No access to bikes as advertised, no access to golf carts as advertised and slip fees were a mystery. Same price for a 50 as for a 44. Very helpful young lady who workded there drove us to town in her own truck--otherwise we would've been stuck at marina. Town is OK, not much going on there. Seems like the marina needs a good manager and it would be 5 star. As it is, be ready for confusion.

Great Potential, 2016-07-11
Captain: , Timonium (90)

The facilities were great except the staff was very inexperienced. The marina is not within walking distance to town so they offer bikes and golf carts - except neither were available for our use. Fortunately, a staff member drove us and picked us up. They have a restaurant on site - very good food. No pool. Not much in town. We would not return - not enough to attract us back plus the marina is a 30 minute ride from the channel.

Great facility, 2016-07-02
Captain: , Deltaville, VA (80)

Always check the tide before entering the area as it can be tough even at mid tide. We come here just about every year and always enjoy ourselves. Two great golf course and very good service & assistance with docking. Rental golf carts to get around the area is great.

Outstanding Marina, 2015-10-16
Captain: , Portsmouth, RI (44)

This marina has it all- terrific staff and facilities, a restaurant on site open 7 days a week and serving delicious food, a well stocked ships store and a charming town which is home to the Brown Dog Ice Cream Shop and Kelly's Gingernut Pub - 2 places we really enjoyed. If you are looking for a hair salon, be sure to visit Unique Graphics. We had planned to stay a week, but stayed longer due to weather. Smitty, the new dockmaster, went out of his way to extend true hospitality to the visiting boaters. Thank you to Smitty and all his staff!

Great marina and dock staff, 2015-10-12
Captain: , Dunedin, FL (7375)

The last two reviews say it all, not much to add. Really helpful staff working at great facility.

The single boat wells were extra convenient to add extra hurricane lines to secure out boat. My one concern with the docks was the possible interference between the floating dock piling brackets and the fuel dock walk way. If water level had come up another 2 ft., brackets may (or may not) have contacted the walkway.

Beautiful place, amazing facilities, 2015-10-06
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (486)

This is an amazing marina, with all of the facilities (ALL First Rate!) you could want including a superb restaurant, on-site. Staff was friendly and helpful, restrooms and showers spotless. They have an event facility here which is memorable: clean, bright, easy access. Views from the restaurant are breathtaking. We'll go again!

Exceptional Customer Focus!!, 2015-10-04
Captain: , Branford, CT (1003)

We came here with many others for a trawler rendezvous. The docks are new floating docks, restrooms spotless, staff excellent. BUT WAIT, there is more: Hurricane Joaquin is off the coast. As such, it's too rough for any of us to leave. The marina has said we can all stay beyond our check out day AT NO CHARGE! But wait...there is even more. When it looked like the hurricane was coming at us, they offered to put us up in their condos at no charge. That is a customer focused marina!

The entrance is not hard, but you do have to pay attention. I agree with previous posters: Print out the marina approach instructions from their web site.

Great Stay!, 2015-09-10
Captain: , Gloucester Pt (10)

We had two fantastic visits at the Oyster Farm this year. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Dock hands were always available to help. Both the marina store and bath houses were great. The inlet to Kings creek is a bit tricky. I would recommend printing off their chart provided on the web site. Also, reserve a golf cart prior to arriving if you want to tour the town. The broken pump out system was the only complaint we had about the marina. We cant wait to return again next year.

Great Marina--tense entrance, 2015-07-17
Captain: , Deltaville, VA (90)

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. Cape Charles does a nice 4th of July. Foolishly waited until the last minute to make a reservation, but the Oyster Farm gladly accommodated us. Getting in was tense--I have a 46' sailboat drawing 5'3". The channel is well marked. The issue was depth. A little nerve-wracking. We had to enter at low tide; I would have had to wait until dark for high tide and that is not a channel to enter in the dark. The dockmaster assured me over the radio I would have no issues drawing 5'3". Well, I touched bottom three times. Once just north of the Cape Charles jetty (not the marina's fault but the bump not on my charts) and twice in the marina channel. I bounced off mud so no harm done. Once in, everything was perfect.

The cost was $1.80 per foot plus power. Floating docks--at least 50' long! Well protected--a squall with 50+ knot winds blew through (for about 10 minutes) the night of the 4th, and while we could hear it, not much effect inside the marina basin. Staff at the dock and restaurant friendly and accommodating. Restaurant excellent. Got to see two fireworks shows from the restaurant porch on the 4th--one to the north at Cherrystone Point; then the Cape Charles show 30 minutes later.

Left the morning of the 5th at mid-tide; had at least 1' under the keel all the way.

I stayed in this marina (in a smaller boat) a few years ago, and I'm glad to say our recent trip saw a lot more activity. More boats, more people, etc. Looks like they are making a go of it. It is a really nice place with a competitive price. Just don't attempt going in at low tide if you draw more than 5'3".

Great Marina on the Bay, 2015-07-12
Captain: , Newark, DE (20)

This is one of the best marinas on the Chesapeake. We are staying for the summer and expect to stay again next year. Well marked channel into Kings Creek. Excellent staff that are most helpful in all regards- reservations, assist in navigating the channel, and docking. Nice restaurant on site and town is within walking distance. Golf carts also available for rent. Also available are rental bikes, paddle boards and kayaks. Bath facilities are the best on the bay- think granite tile. Complimentary pump out and available ethanol-free gas.

Great Marina - Great restaurant - Great Views - "Just stay in the Deep water...", 2015-03-21
Captain: , Virginia Beach (133)

We stayed here twice in the past month (June 2013). Very protected, beautiful views of the sunset from "Aqua" the restaurant on site. Great food. The Store has excellent prices on supplies like 3m 5200 and the like. The channel is well marked. There is one pole mounted marker North of the Kings Creek channel for Cherrystone inlet. There is plenty of "Thick Water" in that area. The first time we came in the channel, I called via cell for assistance on the channel markers and was told by a helpful but new person, "Just stay in the deep water and you'll be fine". I called on 16 to the dockmaster.....

Fantastic Marina, 2014-09-02
Captain: , Richmond, VA (79)

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend and can't say enough about how nice this marina is. Floating docks, all well maintained. Gorgeous views. Well stocked ship's store with friendly staff. The bathrooms are the cleanest I have seen in any marina. Other marina's could learn a thing or two from King's Creek.

The channel geting in is very shallow/narrow so you need to follow the markers closely. And as the site says, stay on the red side of the channel becuase you will run aground on the green...we learned the hard way! However, we called the marina and Joe was out in a boat 5 minutes later pulling us out.

If you are planning a trip to Cape Charles, this is where you want to be.

Very Nice Marina, 2014-08-23
Captain: , Hampton, VA (314)

This is an excellent marina with large floating docks, good restaurant, and pool. It's a great place for a club to visit as there is plenty of area to socialize. As previously stated, be careful of the channel depths. The town of Cape Charles is very nice and not very far away. Bikes would be nice, but not necessary.

Third Nicest Marina on the Bay, 2014-06-18
Captain: , Herrington Harbour South (328)

Channel is a nail-biter but well marked (we draw 4'). Recommend arriving at high tide to be safe if you draw more than 5'. Marina/resort third nicest on Bay (Herrington Harbour South & Tides Inn first and second respectively). Beautfiul floating docks, bath house, grounds, beach, etc. Tiny pool and all the 'action' is on the other side of town. We had our own bikes so it didn't matter. We also had the place to ourselves. Having said that, we would stay at Cape Charles Harbor next time. The docks are brand new and the 'action' is a quick walk away. Plus they are cheaper and closer to the entrance/exit to the Bay.

Nice place, but not very hospitable to transients, 2014-06-01
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (3132)

For the rate they are charging, I would really expect a lot more in terms of hospitality one to take lines, hard to get hold of them, difficult entrance, and only interested in getting you into their over priced on site restaurant. Unwilling to share local knowledge about depths and entrance route (other than the markers that are in place). Overall, very disappointing.

Kings Creek Marina, 2014-05-13
Captain: , Sandwich (722)

Huge marina tucked inside cove. Floating docks are in good condition. Had the marina to ourselves. Very clean upscale bath/shower facilities. Great west views over Chesapeake for sunset pictures. Easy walk into Cape Charles center. Had a great meal at Kelly's Gingernut Pub.

Very nice marina, 2013-11-19
Captain: , Norfolk, VA (165)

We (along with about 20 other boats) stayed for 3 days in August for our Power Squadron's 100th Anniversary rendezvous. The entrance channel is narrow but well marked. The floating docks are in great shape. The marina is large and well kept. A short bike ride into the little town of Cape Charles was like a taking a step back in time. There were little ice cream shops, a few restaurants and even a wine shop offering a wine tasting! Don%u2019t miss visiting the almost 100 year old hardware store. It has a nice selection of smaller marine goods and hardware available. We plan to visit again next year.

Well-run Marina, 2013-09-17
Captain: , Stafford, VA (305)

Very clean, nice wide slips and floating docks. The pool is very small for a marina of this size.
There is one ice cream shop in town, with great homemade ice cream, and a real old-time hardware store. Good town to explore by bicycle, or rent a golf cart at the marina.

Beautiful Marina, 2013-08-05
Captain: , Weston, VT (570)

Just spent two nights at Kings Creek and could not have been more pleased. Docks and entire facility looks brand new although it was built about 10 years ago. Was sold at auction recently and purchased by founder of Monster drinks we were told. Cape Charles the town had a lot going on this weekend including Clam Slam and last night the Air Force jazz band played at the beautiful town park.
Bathrooms are like a resort, granite counters and very clean. Will return.

Great marina, 2013-06-19
Captain: , Annapolis (3379)

The entrance was easier to make that some people had told us. Just follow the markers. A beautifull and very protected marina. Great restaurant. Joe was super friendly and helpful.

Great Destination, 2013-06-07
Captain: , Pasadena,Maryland (510)

Tricky entrance, but well marked. Facilities are excellant. Pool was not in service, as it was green- no explanation. Good shelter. Resturant on site was good. Town is a short bike ride away.

Best on the bay, 2012-10-26
Captain: , Deltaville, VA (80)

One of the best marinas on the bay. Everything about this marina is 5 star. The only downside is it is a bit of a hike to the main area of town (about 1 hr walking)

Top notch marina!, 2012-09-19
Captain: , Arnold, MD (263)

This is probably the best marina on the Chesapeake Bay in terms of the quality of its physical facilities: state-of-the art floating docks with large slips, huge gas dock, easy pumpout, good power/water, complimentary cable/internet, spacious/clean bathrooms, complimentary laundry, etc. The marina staff, led by Harbormaster Mike Ward, are very helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make your visit a pleasant one. Also, the on-site shops and marina office are very nice. The on-site Aqua restaurant/bar is great - - the Thai Shrimp appetizer is to die for! Downtown is a bit of a trek, but they have bikes, and you can rent a golf cart - - we walked. Downtown, try the Shanty restaurant on the water at the harbor - - the clamchowder is the best! If you need information of any kind about the town, talk to the mayor, Dora Sullivan. She runs Sullivan's Office supply on the main drag. On our visit, the winds were from the south. We noticed the boats at the town docks - - and the docks themselves - - were bouncing around like crazy from the chop. At Bay Creek, we were smooth and calm.

Baycreek and surrounding area, 2012-07-03
Captain: , Solomons, Maryland (133)

This is our third stay at Bay Creek. We arrived on a Sunday and their were no dockhands available to help us dock-they were shorthanded. There was plenty of help from neighboring slips though.
Aqua Restaurant did not dissapoint. Great service, view and food.
Ate pizza at Hook-u-up in town. This restaurant appears to be under new management. Pizza was horrible, we asked for plates and the owner went out to his truck to get us some. Restroom smells of rat poison. Avoid at all costs!
Still no real supermarket in town. Hard to get provisions.
Watson's Hardware is worth a visit.

Nice facility, but it is a hoof to walk to town, 2012-05-28
Captain: , Gloucester, Va (222)

Beautiful marina, but it is a good hour's walk to get to the old town area - main street. Worth the walk anyway, but U may want to rent a golf cart. The city marina is not as ritzy, but it is cheaper and is right across the street from the town & 5 minutes from the Cape beach.

Top flight marina, 2011-12-30
Captain: , San Francisco CA (1301)

Spent a day and a night here on the way south to Norfolk. Nice golf cart ride into town. Wonderful restaurant with excellent food.

Excellent Marina, 2011-11-28
Captain: , Deltaville (51)

Beautiful Place. Big slips. Friendly People. Clean and spacious bathhouse.

Nice but.., 2011-07-18
Captain: , Fishing Bay VA (335)

Beautiful marina, floating docks, cable TV and all the stuff. I only draw 3.5 feet so really had no problems coming in, but it is shallow... Beach at Cape Charles is great, and it%u2019s an all around beautiful setting. So why 4 stars and a but.. we arrived and was told that the dock hands would meet us to tie up, nobody there to meet us. Nobody even came to check on us. Not that you can%u2019t get in, slips are at least 20' wide and floating so if you can%u2019t park in there then.. The beach close to the marina is terrible and has some black stuff that I don%u2019t think will ever come off the kids clothes. The restaurant Aqua%u2019s, nice setting, but had a wedding so we couldn%u2019t get a "reservation" before 9pm, even though it looked empty to me, ordered take out, and felt like I was the crazy cousin you don%u2019t want in your house, paid 60 bucks for meatloaf I couldn%u2019t tell what it was, got a parking ticket for renting a golf cart and parking at the beach, and I%u2019ll tell ya, I just felt like I wasn%u2019t pretty enough to hang out here. It%u2019s a shame for such a beautiful place, but I have had better times at the Hampton city docks, just without the beach. 4 stars for the facility, but....

Bay Creek Marina, 2011-06-15
Captain: , Norfolk VA (56)

Great Marina. Floating docks, fuel facilities and staff are terrific.
Mike the dockmaster is very helpful and good source of local information and services. We enjpy the shops and Aquas restaurant.
Short walk to historic town of Cape Charles or rent golf cart. We are somewhat tide constricted with our 7' draft. Looks like some areas of approach are minimum of 8' depth at 2 hours before high tide. Otherwise wonderful setting.

July 2010 Great Marina, 2011-04-08
Captain: , Deltaville (106)

Beatiful secenry and marina. Great restruant for fine dining. Rent gold cart for ride into Cape Charles for supplies if needed. Not much to see. very narrow and shallow channel into marina.

Destination Weeked, 2011-03-27
Captain: , Norfolk Virginia (481)

Bay Creek ddfines five star. If a member of your party does not understand why you like boats, go to Bay Creek. From the floating docks to the dining (not dinner) on site or access to Cape Charles and a growing "district", this is the place. Don't take this wrong but the shower facilities come close to a reason to make the trip. People from Virginia Beach often make this trek only for the dining and if you play golf, great courses close at hand which will humble those who think they can play golf. Bay Creek = Distination

Bay Creek Marina is the Best on the East Coast, 2011-02-02
Captain: , Camp Lejeune (61)

The best floating dock system I've ever seen! The staff constantly walk the docks in search of boaters that might need assistance. One of the most protected harbors on the Coast. All set in the historic and lovely little bayside town of Cape Charles. To top it all off, Bay Creek Marina has the friendliest, most accomadating marina staff you will ever come across! What else could you ask for?

Great Facility, 2010-10-27
Captain: , Norfolk, VA (30)

A++ Facility. Doesn't get much better than this on the lower bay. Bathrooms look like they should be in Trump Tower. Full length finger piers too. Hard to leave. Very laid back area. Pool isn't very big. From what I understand the pool is a temporary pool until the area gets built up a little more. Beach at the resort isn't very good, but the public beach at Cape Charles is really nice. Shallow, great for kids.

Bay Creek Marina on the Chesapeake, 2010-09-26
Captain: , Williamsburg, VA (745)

Bay Creek Marina is another great facility on the Lower Chesapeake. It's a bit tricky to get into with the shallow water at the entrance. However, the staff will help guide you in if necessary. Once in the deep water is clearly marked. The floating piers are great. There is a good restaurant on site and the restrooms are very clean. There is a lot to do here, especially if you play golf. The town of Cape Charles is a short bike ride away for limited shopping and restaurants. The marina is one of the nicest on the Bay.

Bay Creek Marina, 2010-09-15
Captain: , New Kent Virginia (371)

Beautiful facility. All floating docks. Staff knowledgeable and courteous. Ducked into the marina while looking for a place to anchor for the night. No anchorage available in the creek. Restroom facilities are 6 star resort quality, and the marina facility is top notch. Entrance to the marina is a bit tricky, and though recently dredged, the entrance channel is narrow. Anna's Choice draws 4 foot of water and we bumped twice at low tide. Marina honored Boat US discount for fuel, but not slip discount, nor MTOA yacht club reciprocity.

Great Destination, 2010-09-15
Captain: , Annapolis MD (191)

The marina facilities are outstanding. We took advantage of the free transportation and played both the Palmer and Nicklaus golf courses.

Marina staff friendly and helpful. Dock hands are knowledgable. Salt water pool is nice. Restaurant superb. No beach but town is close and has a wonderful beach. Old fashioned town. Free laundry is a plus and clean rest rooms.

Nice marina tucked away on King's Creek. Decent food onsite (AQUA). Nice concrete floating docks and friendy staff. Very nice showers although they are a hoof from the docks. Tiny pool. Beach access and a bunch of stuff to rent (kayaks, golf carts, etc.).

Not much to add to last year's review...all is still great, but the golf courses took a hit from the severe winter. We took advantage of our first Co-Op ($1 per ft/night) and were warmly welcomed.

We found this facility much nicer and friendlier than anything in VA Beach or Norfolk. Prices better and not near the rigidity as on the Western Shore. Provisioning is about 4 miles away but we had 3 people offer to take us there so it was not a problem. I highly recommend it for extended stays or transients.

This is one of the best marinas on the bay. The slips are very roomy, the showers are extremely nice, the laundry facilities are free, and the restaurant is very good and has a great view. Golf carts are available for rent to cruise to town, which also has a couple of excellent restaurants.

This is one of the newest marinas on the Lower Chesapeake. The facilities are all very nice and well maintained. The large floating slips have about everything you might want with all power options, TV amd water. They have facilities to handle the largest boats.

The staff have always been friendly and quite helpful.
