Reviews for Woodsback Marina
A hidden, simple gem, 2016-11-13
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (1211)

Woodsback Marina is a small marina off Back Creek in Annapolis. It is well protected from wind in any direction. Some of the slips are silted in a bit.

Amenities are limited to 30A power and water. There is a dock cart and limited storage for dinghies.

Although exceptions have been made for returning slipholders the policy is annual leases only. There is no accommodation for transients.

There is a driveway that may be used for loading and unloading but all parking is on the street. The distance is quite short and a faster walk than most marinas. You just have to remember where you stashed your car!

I spent a month at Woodsback preparing a boat to go to Caribbean. My boat neighbors included a circumnavigator and a couple who had recently crossed the Atlantic. It was a lovely quiet place to prepare and lots of pleasant conversation on breaks from boat projects.

Whether local to Annapolis or simply spending a year on the Chesapeake Woodsback Marina is a good base. Recommended.

We kept our sailboat there for 5 years and were very happy there.
