Reviews for Dare Marina
Friendly Accessible Marina, 2016-07-06
Captain: , Richmond (10)

The staff here is great and prices are reasonable. The marina has great access to the bay as well as Yorktown. Highly recommend.



could've been better, 2015-09-11
Captain: , Elizabeth City, NC (60)

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon after finding the marina using the active captain companion and a rough day traveling south in the bay. Marina was closed by 5PM but thankfully some of the yard hands were still there and allowed us to dock for some diesel, which is in a terrible location in the marina. They did have clean bathrooms though. I don't plan on stopping in there again since it's obviously a marina for local folks and not a marina for people traveling.



Fuel update, 2013-09-25
Captain: , Seaford, VA (783)

Dare Marina now has diesel fuel.
The diesel pump in not located at the main gas fuel dock, but is actually on shore, near where they drop boats into the water with a forklift from dry storage. It may be a little difficult to maneuver a large boat in close enough to fuel up.



Well Done Service, 2013-04-29
Captain: , Poquoson (48)

Well Done!.....a place of good service...



Top Notch Yamaha mechanic, 2012-10-08
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (555)

We needed some repair work on our old 2 stroke Yamaha 40 after years of Caribbean shade tree mechanics patching it up. We found Dare Marina's service manager Mike Hanna to be wonderful to work with. Yamaha mechanic Luke is top notch; I would recommend his work to anyone. We anchored off their marina while the work was being done to our dinghy engine, and they were nice enough to ferry us back and forth to our boat so we could take our morning walks. Their labor prices were fair, and service, skill excellent. Our Yamaha has never run better, thanks to them.



Excellent Hi and Dry marina, 2011-01-29
Captain: , Hampton, VA (2502)

While an excellent place to keep a runabout, not a marina catering to cruisers.
