Reviews for Belle Haven Marina
Not Bad Marina, 2014-03-04
Captain: , Annandale Va. (265)

A not bad marina. Not a lot of services but had a friendy group of people there. Watch out very shollow areas all around so ask were ther are and you'll be ok



Great people and you feel welcome, 2011-09-10
Captain: , Melbourne Florida (4616)

I was met right away by Chip the dockmaster. Great person! Showed us were to dock the dink, lock our bikes, get water. Not the biggest or newest Marina, but by far the nicest, accomidating people we have met.....more Marinas should have this outlook. We decided to stay a few more days.



Kinda Run down, but quaint and really nice folks, 2011-07-12

Access is limited, shallows, but dredging has been discussed and may be in the works soon. Moor in bay, and take tender in.



A people's marina, 2011-06-27
Captain: , alexandria, va (40)

The friendly, unpretentious staff, (Chip the dockmaster bends over backwards to make sure everyone is happy) the spirited, adventurous attitude of the kayakers, paddle boarders, kids laughing and horsing around in their sunfish sailboats, the adults sailing Flying Scotts, artists with their easels and canvas trying to capture the beauty of the marsh, all earned this marina its 3 stars. Also, unlike many marinas in this area, boaters are not saddled with oppressive, overly restrictive rules and regulations. This marina is alive.

Unfortunately, the park authority chooses to lock the shower facilities, WTF? The bathroom is decrepit and reeks of urine. Shame on you park authority. Can you at least open the showers?

Despite it's shortcomings, I gave this marina three stars for it's honest and fun approach to boating and it's close proximity to West marine, shopping center, library, rec center (with showers) and public transportation.

Fixed docks and little to no transient slips keeps me anchored outside the marina.
