Reviews for Rising Sun Marina
Quaint little town, 2016-03-04
Captain: , Cincinnati (1810)

I agree with alll the other reviews. No electric, water, or facilities, It is a FREE dock though in a quaint little town



Nice Small Town Stop, 2015-09-20
Captain: , Louisville, KY (291)

Lay along docking for transients only on river-side. Bank side are reserved. Ten minute walk into town to a couple of restaurants.



Nice Town and Dock, 2012-07-06
Captain: , Aquia Harbour, VA (1177)

Dock is floating, alongside tie. Very roly from tow and local boaters who did not reduce their wake when they were close to the dock. The Mexican Restaurant was very good. We were there on a Sunday. Most of the town shops were closed. A car show was going on- 295 cars.



Nice Easy free dock in the middle of town, 2012-06-22
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

Stopped to scout out this cute town. The dock has deep water ad nice cleats. No water or power. free and overnighting only requires registering at the Police Dept. which is 3 blocks straight up fom the dock. The dock filled up on the weekend so best mid week or arrive early to hope to get a spot. There are some wakes from upbound tows but mostly from the many local idiot ski boats and PWC. Town is very charming and has several attractions worth exploring such as the "Luthiers" work shop (harp maker) they make harps that are sent all over the world. This was really fastinating.



Great Little City Dock, 2011-10-24
Captain: , Cincinnati (273)

Rising Sun is a wonderful little river town. THey allow free overnight docage. Its a very short walk into the center of town with lots of shops and places to eat.
