Reviews for Port of Salisbury Marina
First Rate Marina, 2016-05-23
Captain: , Solomons Island (43)

Harbor Master Glen Lay was absolutely the best, super friendly and offerd the most assistance whenever possible. The location, within a couple minutes to downtown is very convenient. Being next door to The Brew River restaraunt was simply a major bonus. We hale from Solomons Island and this trip was a dream. Faster than driving and WAY more fun! Oh, did I forget to mention "pet friendly"? Yes! Please keep the grounds clean.

Fantastic Dock Master, 2015-08-05
Captain: , Burke, Va. (30)

Sean Kille is a great ambassador for Salisbury. Great service; offered to go off site to buy ice; used his personal truck to drive to Ocean City!!!

Getting better, 2014-08-29
Captain: , Occoquan (35)

This marina has improved greatly over the past 18 months and well maintained. The dock masters are very helpful and keep a close eye on your boat. This is great place to exploire all the the Esternshore has to offer. Per foot are $1.00/$10 for a 50amp and a short walk to the historic district of Salisbury.

A plesant point from which to explore, 2012-09-02
Captain: , PooleUK (933)

The run up the river was quite stunning, the cable ferries were hugely obliging as were the tugs and barges, I admire the profesional atitude and courtesy that these leviathans operating in a confined and flowing river demonstrated. We draw 8ft and had no trouble getting upstream, but are gently aground at low water in the marina. The facility is well maintained by the chaps here, and good food is not far away. To our delight the power supply is pretty good as is the free WIFI. Being at the foot of the town the marina is well sheltered from the squalls that blew through. We enjoyed the area as a base of operations from which to explore, for this purpose it is ideal. N.B. Car hire here is more expensive by the day than the marina for a 64ft boat with 2 x 50 Amp power supplies! Thank you for your care and attention to detail chaps, keep upi the good work.

Good price but nothing to do., 2010-07-30
Captain: , Mesa AZ (1609)

Facilities are adequate. After traveling so far up the river, we found nothing to do in town. Most of the down town houses attorneys. Restaurant next to marina is very good.

Convenient, good facilities, nice people--and the latest news, 2009-09-20
Captain: , Chesapeake Bay (592)

The ride up the Wicomico River from the Chesapeake to Salisbury is very pleasant. Pay attention to two ferries and their cables. Don't be surprised by barge traffic--I passed two.
The facility is quite nice, Brew River Restaurant is across the parking lot, and downtown Salisbury is across the bridge.


City of Salisbury begins renovations at municipal marina
After taking over the management reins at the Port of Salisbury Marina in Salisbury, M.d., city management began marina renovations focused on aestic upgrades and repairs to the fueling station, according to an Aug. 18 report in The (Md.) Daily Times.

“We are bringing [the marina] back to a fabulous level in terms of looks and safety,” said Dorine Turner, project manager for the revitalization project. “We are currently pursuing several avenues on getting fuel back down there. Once we’ve done the investment, maintaining the marina should be extremely cost-effective.”

A gas tank malfunction last June has resulted in dwindling profits. The city refused to accommodate a request by the former management company, Coastal Property Management, for $30,000 to continue operating the marina and terminated their contract in March.

Since taking over, the city hired two part-time dock masters, who keep the marina open seven days a week to serve its 30 slip holders. In response to customer complaints about cleanliness, the city staff now routinely cleans the docks, and the bathroom floor has been replaced. The main marina building was painted in August, and Turner said she hopes to unveil the changes in a grand reopening in September.

The city has already paid for the removal of the old, broken tanks, but no money remains to purchase new ones, according to Turner. She said grants from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources waterway improvement funds might be the answer.
