Reviews for Pier 225 Marina
Good Protection In A Blow, 2016-08-16
Captain: , Southport Queensland (300)

Stayed here for three nights in August to wait out a blow. Manager Brian is super helpfull but the docks are seriously in need of some work. Only about 6 foot deep at the oustside dock and weeds and grass reach the surface giving a false reading on the sounder. We had to back off hard a few times when out in the river to dislodge the weed from our running gear so watch your strainers.
15 inute walk to the classic boat museum which is outstanding.

best Harbor protection, 2016-07-05
Captain: , Annapolis MD. (141)

We docked here for a big northerly blow and had a relative peaceful night. Our friends stayed at another narina and said it was a little bouncy. Pier 225 is a little shallow however--a concern if you are a sailboat.

Outstanding stopover, 2015-08-06
Captain: , Palm Coast (63)

The docks and facilities are old but Brian's attention and service more than compensates. The power and water on the docks are excellent and the toilets and showers are the cleanest that I have found anywhere. The price of $2/ft/day was offset by a buy 2 get a third free policy. The town and antique boat museum are well worth a visit. Finally, the marina is at the end of the bay giving it decent protection from the west wind which seems to blow every day.

Brian could not be more helpful., 2015-07-13
Captain: , Seabrook, TX (323)

First, yes, there is pump out here.
This is an older marina that could use some work, but nowhere have we found a more helpful owner/dock master than Brian. He went out of his way to help us order a raw water pump for our generator and find a good local mechanic (Bob the mechanic is excellent, efficient, and reasonable.), and then kept us informed, calling us at the Antique Boat Museum (also excellent) when the part arrived.
Other boaters, regulars at the marina, were friendly and helpful, also, and the deck outside of Brian's office provides a pleasant spot to drink a cup of (free) coffee and visit.
Restrooms and showers fine, but not handicapped-accessible, and there is one step down on the dock without handrails.
It's a three-block walk to the boat museum, and another few blocks to a thriving (in season) business district.
French Creek Marina across the bridge has a huge inventory of boating supplies, including a 50-to-30 amp converter, and is about a four-block walk away. Call for reservations; space, especially for bigger boats, is limited.

Good marina for transients, Great Owner, 2014-08-18
Captain: , Montreal (243)

We tied up here after finding French Marina too crowded (they wanted to raft us) and were very pleasantly surprised. This is not a fnacy, glitzy marina but Brian is very helpful and genuinely cares about his guests. There waas coffee in the mornings and the bathrooms and showers were clean and inviton.

Drop in and you won't be disappointed.

A bit of a disappointment, 2014-08-16
Captain: , Wicomico Church (610)

While the town if great and the staff is friendly.. the marina is too crowded for anything over 40 feet. Turning around in the fairway is difficult.. one needs to back down into a side slip

Captain: , Fort Worth, TX (50)

You will quickly overlook the worn appearance of the docks after experiencing the great help and hospitality of the owner. He has worked hard to provide clean, spacious, and lovely restrooms and outdoor entertainment area. 4th of July here was great! Depth OK for our 58' powerboat with 5' draft. Reasonable rates.

Nice sunset view from elevated deck, 2012-09-16
Captain: , Roswell, GA (455)

Brian is very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms and showers are clean. An easy walk to downtown.

Good Stop in Clayton, 2012-07-26
Captain: , Longboat Key, FL (445)

I ditto prior comments. Brian placed our 50 footer with 4.2 foot draft on an inner doick. Depth 4.2 feet. luckily silt only. slightly deeper at outer dock. Free coffee and danish in morning.

Two good restaurants, Bella and Clipper Inn that will pick you up at the marina.

Great family run marina, 2011-08-11
Captain: , Galena, MD (1856)

Been in the same family over 35 years.
Very comfortable. Clean showers and rest rooms. Upper deck with grilles and picnic tables with umbrellas. Brian, the dockmaster will go out of his way to help in any way possible. Quiet and away from the noise and party atmosphere.
