Reviews for Public Dock
Working dock, 2017-03-04
Captain: , Oriental,NC (557)

Well we just pulled in 3/4/17 and the dock is in good shape with new boards on the sides and cleats to tie dinghy to. Gazebo at end of dock.

Town Dock closed for renovation 11/2/2016, 2017-02-02
Captain: , Deale, MD (40)

Update January 2017 - work continues and the dock is now usable by dinghies. They have added lighting. Power posts have been installed and water is in place, but not open for use yet. We do not know if overnighting will be permitted.

New concrete decking is in place. Workers have stopped by the last two days to hose down the fresh concrete. Staff at the Dinghy Dock bar are allowing reasonable access to town via their dock. Milka's Grocery also has a dinghy dock in the canal - from Ensenada Honda it is the first dock on the left.

Not pretty, but useful, 2015-07-23
Captain: , San Marcos, TX (865)

Good dock to make quick trip into town for groceries, trash disposal, etc. Would not leave our dinghy here all day, but good for short time. Convenient to all Dewey has to offer. Low wooden planks make it easier to climb up/down. Doesn't seem to get much traffic.

Not the best dock, 2014-06-16
Captain: , Bristol, RI (431)

but at least there is one! The common practice is to throw out a stern anchor and tie the bow to the dock. Keeps the boat from going under the dock. Trash cans in the parking area.

It's about a 15-20 minute walk to the airport or Carlos Jeep rental - turn right at the top of the hill. Carlos will pick you up if you give them a call.

Terrible spot to tie up, 2012-11-28
Captain: , Great Falls, VA (1092)

I normally give free docks an automatic 4 stars, but you better have huges fenders to even consider tying up here. Ugly concrete dock, I would only consider tying the boat here to very quickly load or unload some things that would be impossible from the dinghy. Though it makes an ok dinghy dock with a bit of a climb.

Long climb up from your dingy, 2011-03-28
Captain: , Hampton, VA (423)

Concrete dock designed for large power vessels. Lots of space to tie up a dingy but long climb from dingy to top of dock. Not very cruiser friendly. Several other docks in area to tie up.

Sometimes when clearing into PR, the Homeland security folks will meet you at the dock to check passports and ships papers. Saves a walk to airport
