Reviews for Hancock's Harbor Marina
Amazing People, 2017-08-16
Captain: , Mobile AL (81)

On our way down Delaware Bay, our limping starboard engine was stressing us out as for continuing on. Unable to beat into the wind with only one engine comfortably we pulled into Cohansey River and anchored to wait better wind angles and to find a Volvo mechanic and reasonably priced marina. We called around Cape May and were given a number for "Tim". We reached his wife and were told he was working at the marina just three miles up the creek from where we were. We checked with the marina to see if they could accommodate our 21' beam and were told to come ahead. We found aging but totally sufficient floating side tie docks. Tim tested the engine within hours and confirmed our fear-- a rebuild or replacement was needed. The boat yard can accommodate up to 22' beam for haul out, and Tim can complete all the work. The marina is as inexpensive as they come, the people here are incredibly friendly offering numerous times to help out, and the marina and boatyard can complete whatever work we need. The facilities are not 5 star, but neither are the prices. I rate 5 star for the assistance received, the easy dockage, and the restaurant, outdoor bar and bait shop are steps away. The 4 star is because there are no shopping facilities for miles and no public transportation. There is an Enterprise store in Bridgeton, 12 miles away, but they won't come this far. We have to rely on these kind folks generosity. I will update this review once the work is complete.

The better marina to stay when visiting Greenwich. , 2017-05-30

Staff extremely helpful. The charges were very reasonable. The restaurant is very good.

Do not pass Handcock's marina and go to the next disgrace for a marina up river. Check out that marina's reviews and compare them to Hancock's. You won't regret it.

Very accomodating for unscheduled stop, 2016-08-22
Captain: , Brick, nj (50)

We came here to avoid a thunderstorm on the bay and ended up staying the night. At least 10 feet MLLW all the way in from the bay and much of it is suprisingly 30+ feet deep. Scott (dockmaster) was out on the dock 10 minutes after our initial call directing us in. There's a restaurant on-site.

Our 43' sailboat left Capr May 0730 with need to go around (45' mast) and up the Delaware. No desire to try canal first time in dark, so found a dockside at this rustic marina. Restaurant closed for the season, but dockmaster Scott very helpful. They are having issues with their land line, so use Scott's cell: 609-501-6627.

Family Fun, 2014-06-09
Captain: , WILMINGTON (20)

The marina had a campground feel. We used it as a reachable weekend destination from Wilmington. The Bait Box's food was excellent. Great spot for an outing with young kids or dogs. You can swim anywhere you like. The river is DEEP. At least as far up as the marinas, stay near the middle and your depth will rarely drop below 25'. I thought my sounder was broken, reading 50+' in spots.

Watch out for gnat season and bring your own booze (really helps keep the dinner check under control). Great affordable family fun. The sidewalks roll up at 9p.m. though.

Shelter from the Storm, 2012-12-02
Captain: , Nyack, NY (646)

Local boating friends recommended this marina to hide from Hurricane Sandy. The place has rustic charm in the middle of a lowland marsh. We were warned that "It needed a coat of paint," and I found that true in every instance. Wi-fi and cell service are poor and the showers continue the "rustic" theme.That said, Scott and his staff did an excellent job of hauling, blocking and staking boats. The eye of the hurricane passed over the marina and as far as I know, no harm was done to any boat. Four stars for attitude, professionalism, fuel price. If your looking for a resort, look elsewhere. the Bait Box Restaurant was closed for the season, but looked nice. Commercial crabbers dock here.

What a dissapointment, 2011-09-24
Captain: , Poughkeepsie, NY (6077)

We had sent an e-mail for a dock on a Saturday night. Upon arriving around 4:50 pm we called on 16, no answer, we called on their working channel of 68, no answer, we called the telephone number of the restaurant and got answer but was told to call the marina directly (with a new number) - no answer. So we finally came into the gas dock and another couple kindly gave us a hand docking - no one from the marina was in evidence. However, once we docked, a marina hand appeared and told us we would have to move to a dock far in the distance - and - he could not possibly give us a hand docking that far away (the current was running a good 2 kts). Off we went and finally docked by ourselves, exciting.

The docks are barely together. The electrical hookup looked okay but when plugged in we discovered that it would not support any amperage. As soon as the battery chrager started up, the voltage would drop to zero and the charger would kick off. The only plus is the $1/ft rate.

Keep the green tower buoy close to port (20 ft) as you approach the entrance to the river even though it's far outside the channel according to the chartplotter. Once past the green tower, aim for the middle of the river and you're fine, plenty of water all they way to Hancock's Harbor Marina

We should have anchored out by the island at the mouth of the river - there's a sandy beach for pet relief.

Friendly service., 2010-03-07

Great spot half way down the bay. Not too far from channel. Cohansey is very deep with easy access for all. Marina is very accessible and provides friendly and professional service.

Captain: , Absarokee Mt (1228)

Good stop half way to Cape May.

Long dock with fuel dock in middle. Good approaches. 50 Amp available.

They waited after hours for us to come in just ahead of a storm and helped tie up, good customer service.

Captain: , Whitehall, Mi (1754)

Nice stop if you don't want to run the entire bay in a day. The Cohansey is a wide deep river easy to navigate. There is current, but nothing outrageous.

The dock is a long face dock so it is easy to get in and out.

Fuel prices were much lower than on the C&D cannal ($2.48 vs $3.15).

Price is $1/ft elec included.
