Reviews for Capital Cove Marina, MWR
Close to all that is DC, 2016-08-07
Captain: , Beverly, MA (1140)

Help is great, price is better. Antiquated facilities, docks are as described previously. Larger boats will have problems finding a slip large enough to accomodate. No Showers or Laundry on location. There is a single head in the MWR building that anyone can use. WI FI is good. Near by bar/diner is ok. If you learn the Metro/Bus system getting in and out of town is easy. There is a shuttle that goes from the Navy Inn to the Metro station in Anacostia. Electric (30A) was adaquate for my boat but not all slips have 30A some with 15A. There is water on docks.

Captain: , Northport MI (405)

Requires Military ID Card-located on Joint Base Anacostia Bolling. Floating Docks. Older docks electrical supply was usefull only for Battery Charging. Very helpful staff. PX , Class six and Commissary less than 2 miles. If you have transportation Downtown DC is 15 minutes away via I295N and Alexandria is 15 min away via I295 S, Annapolis is 40 min away via US 50 (times are NOT during rush hour). There is a wonderful waterfront park with fenced dog park, walking /bike trail for approximately 2 miles from Marina along Potomac into the Anacostia River.

Tried calling.....pulled right up to the harbor entrance trying to get someones attention.....could not raise anyone on VHF 16 or phone. Talked to a person pumping gas....said no room. So much for military benefits.....
