Skipjack Cove Yachting Resort and Marina is a family oriented premier marina on the Chesapeake Bay's beautiful Sassafras River in Cecil County, Maryland. The Sassafras River remains as it was many years ago with peaceful anchorages, fresh water, and small beaches to enjoy. Whether you are looking for a boat slip, an overnight stay, a bite to eat, or a stop for fuel, our marina can accommodate vessels up to 120 feet.
We believe there is no finer place for the entire family to relax and enjoy the Chesapeake Bay lifestyle than Skipjack Cove. Spend the day sailing or cruising the scenic Sassafras River or stay dockside and treat yourself to the many amenities and popular events offered here. A full customer service staff is ready to assist in making your yachting experience a pleasant one on and off the water.
