“While on our yearly boat trip on the Chesapeake Bay from the Delaware River, we happened to stop at Skipjack Cove Yachting Resort for a couple days. We never left. We’re going into our 3rd year now and we can’t imagine being anywhere else. Skipjack is great for families. It has private, air conditioned bathrooms, laundry, family room, an amazing pool and a great restaurant/bar. Everyone is very friendly; other boaters and marina staff. Dock hands can’t do enough for you. We have been to a lot of marinas on the Chesapeake and this is one of the best. We love it here. The perks aren’t bad either!”
