Awesome Marina and Staff, 2017-06-07
Captain: , Middle River, MD (30)

Ed Harwood and his staff at Bowleys are top notch!!!! I have been here for 12 years now and have always been treated fairly. Easy access to the Bay, but can't say enough positive things about the people behind making this marina a 5 Star facility!!!!!

Great Marina with quick access to the Bay, 2014-11-04
Captain: , Bel Air, MD (10)

I have been a member for 2 seasons and found the marina to offer everything I need. The slips offer deep water and good protection. The restrooms are always clean. The marina is private and has a security gate. I give it a thumbs up!

Great Staff and a Great Location, 2014-11-01
Captain: , Middle River, MD (40)

The marina has a very accommodating Manager and staff. Very close to the bay with proper haul-out services if needed. Don't hesitate to ask for anything you need from the staff. Great sunset from the marina. Walmart approx 2 miles up Bowleys Quarters Rd for re-supply.

Fuel Dock Closed, 2014-08-05
Captain: , Middle River (130)

Fuel sales are suspended for the 2014 season due to pier rebuild. Pump out is still available at the fuel pier during regulat Marina hours.

Adequate facilities, nice people, 2013-09-18
Captain: , New Castle, NH PGI, Florida (320)

Pool was closed (Sep 18), but laundry and shower facilities are clean and ample during the week, and end of season. Very large marina that is probably very busy in the summer but fine if you're passing through on the ICW. Avis car rental picked us up for an extra $10 - they are 20 minutes away in a Mall. Shopping plaza 3.26 miles away with Walmart, Auto parts, etc.

Bowleys Marina, 2012-11-04
Captain: , Baltimore (100)

Good fuel pier and pump out. No restaurant. Very active water - lots of motion in the piers

Beautiful member-owned marina., 2011-12-16
Captain: , Middle Rever, MD (28)

Professionally managed, member-owned condo marina. Manicured grounds, clubhouse, security gate. Mechanic on-site, travel lift, fork lift, boat ramp for members, dinghy storage and dinghy dock. Very friendly social atmosphere.

convenient marina, 2010-11-02
Captain: , Galena MD (201)

Stopped here on a 100+ day. The pool was necessary and it did not disappoint. It was clean, the grounds well maintained, and the staff friendly. No near stores or restaurants but ample grills available with picnic areas under shade.

Friendly condo marina, 2010-10-06
Captain: , Baltimore (346)

Good-sized marina right at the entrance of Middle River. Shortest distance to the bay of all marinas in Middle River (I guess together with Baltimore Yacht Club on the opposite shore). Slips for transients up to 50' length or so. Friendly people. Nice grounds, pool, volleyball, BBQs, laundry facilities etc
