39 Miles from the Chesapeake Bay @ Hooper Straits

Welcome to Nanticoke River Marina, Blades, Delaware
The Nanticoke River Marina is operated by the Blades Economic Development Corporation (BEDCO) and is staffed with a dock master.

It is the opinion of many cruisers that the Nanticoke River is the most beautiful river tributary to the Chesapeake Bay. The distance to the marina from Buoy 1 in Hooper's Straits is approximately 41 miles. There is a fair amount of commercial river traffic so it's not uncommon to encounter tugs and barges while navigating it's length.

Great Place to Re-Provision

We came in here for just a night or two and ended up staying five. This is a modern facility with floating concrete docks, very clean, with a friendly staff. There are two convenience stores to the north: BP just a block, with basic stuff, and Royal Farms just a couple more blocks, with bigger selection including their fresh fried chicken. For more serious provisioning, a Walmart Supercenter and a Lowes are 2 miles NNE.

There is a laid-back yacht club on the premises, and it isn't difficult to get an invitation to Happy Hour on Wednesdays, or the $10 dinners they have most Friday nights. This place goes on our Keeper List, and we'll come back here any time we're up the Nanticoke.
