Tidewater Marina

Family boatyard serving Havre de Grace Maryland boaters for over fifty years.

About Us

It’s been over 60 years since Tidewater Marina started operations. We’ve grown from a modest thirty slips to become one of the major full service boating facilities on the Chesapeake Bay.

In addition to deep water slips we offer moorings, hoist spaces, trailer parking, and over 120 spaces for boats in our Hi & Dri. Our configuration with full land breakwaters creates well-protected basins that eliminate current and waves within the marina- making for much easier maneuvering and a calmer time while docked. We’re fully staffed year round. So there is always someone watching out for your boat.

Our complete approach makes it easier for you to enjoy boating. In addition to space rentals, you’ll find a discount marine store, service, repairs and fuel dock, as well as a waterfront event venue. Added onsite services from HP Marine Service, Caribbean Refinishing and Baysail Sailing School & Charters expand our offerings even more. Properly insured contractors are permitted to work within the marina.

The real difference at Tidewater, however, is in the staff. Most are long term employees with an interest in boats that goes back to their childhood. All are dedicated professionals and active boaters that work year round on their area of expertise to make Tidewater a top notch marina.
