Reviews for The Piers Marina/Piers at Penn's Landing
Best Location to see Philly, 2013-08-16
Captain: , Yorktown, VA (952)

Contact information has changed. Call Jim, the friendly, helpful Dockmaster at 215-409-8885. The rate is $2.25 per foot which includes electricity. The marina is in a basin so very protected from debris and wakes. It is on the Penn Landing Riverwalk with a secure entry to the marina in addition to a key to get onto the Riverwalk after hours. Jim will give you a golf cart ride to the bus stop where you can ride the city bus or the Phlash. Phlash is a trolley stopping 27 places for off/on going to all the major visitor locations. It is free for seniors and runs every 15 minutes. You can take the city bus to the subway station with ease. We did that to go to Lincoln Financial Field for a pre-season NFL game even though we are not Eagle fans.
The marina has no facilities but has great floating docks, is secure, and the location is awesome. The Riverwalk stage has many free nights of entertainment.
Transiting the Delaware River is a challenge. We are a slow trawler and did not pay attention to the tides going up. We certainly did leaving as they run very strong. Also, much debris and shipping traffic. However, Philadelphia is well worth the 38 miles up the River from the C&D.

Best place ever to watch the fireworks from the comfort of your our vessel. No crowds, easy in and out access .... great facilities.
Great location to walk the town ... South Street etc.

Many thanks to Chuck the Harbour Master

Conflicting entry depth information from Dock Master and Dock hand, 2011-07-03
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

Called the day before and the on duty dock hand gave me a slip but on arrival day (next day) I called to confirm and left a message and called teh cell phone number given on the recording. The cell phone belonged to the Dock Master "Chuck" (he was on the Golden Gate walk in Ca.). Chuck said they were full and that my boat would run aground at the entry and should not have been assigned a slip. I immediately made arrangement at the the Phil. Marine Center docks and was lucky to get in as it was fireworks night for the Fourth. Later the on site dock hand retuned my call and didn't understand why Chuck said I'd run aground as he had sailboats and other large cruiser in slips. I observed large boats and sailboats dock in the basin.??? They need to get the information correct.

Great location but going downhill, 2011-07-03
Captain: , Beach haven NJ (510)

I kept my boat here year round for many years. It used to be a great marina so I thought about returning for winter dockage. I stopped by the office but no one was there and I could not raise anyone on the number listed outside the office, After speaking with some of the current residents in the marina I was told they had silting problems inside the marina. This marina is very well protected by a good bulkhead and the surrounding condos and is in a great location with an outstanding Italiian restaurant (La Veranda) on the premises. It is also located within walking distance of many resturants and popluar bars in the city.
