Reviews for Washington Sailing Marina
Great place close to DC, 2016-07-02
Captain: , Brookhaven, NY (366)

Bought an O'Day 322 that was at the A dock here. Spent several weekends getting her ready to leave. The restaurant had some issues, but the marina is top notch. Jeff is a great marina manager, and a wonderful person to work with. Arranged a haulout to prep the bottom and do some other work, and received great support from the marina staff.
Anchor just off the north side of the docks, or get a transient slip (may be tough..). Bathrooms/showers are average, restaurant is so-so, lots of nearby shops for everything, but not within walking distance. Use Uber or cab.



Good Facility, Great Staff, 2013-07-24
Captain: , Dayton, MT (82)

We hauled our 33' sailboat here to load on a trailer. Ron and his staff were super professional and knew what they were doing. Nice facility, would get 5 stars except for the bathrooms. Watch the depths coming in, ran aground at low tide off the docks.



Friendly, Basic, local., 2012-05-26
Captain: , Alexandria (138)

Sailboat rentals from A Dock provide hours of summertime entertainment. The bar is great (if Joe is tending bar, he is a great local resource.) Food is pretty good, but sometimes the servers can be a bit off in the restaraunt, especially in the small snack bar around back. Marina service has always been top notch.



Not for stink pots, but the food is OUTSTANDING, 2011-07-12
Captain: , Washington, DC (350)

I have to say, this is stictly a sailing marina, but you can stop and eat at the diningroom, that has views of sail boat classes, sunfish. Also the DCA landing strip for the airport in the distance, accross the grass and calm water. Beautiful place. Dine in.
