Marina Approach & Docking

Georgetown Yacht Basin is located along the Sassafras River about eight miles from the river’s mouth. Proceed up the river observing the channel markers past N 14 and then you will see a bascule bridge. The basin is located on your starboard side before the bridge. There is plenty of water for most vessels in the Sassafras River. The docks are stationary structures with fingerpiers. There is a one-and-a-half-foot tide in the basin.

The marina staff monitors VHF 71 and 16, so call ahead for reservations and slip assignments. The dockmaster’s hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. in season (longer on weekends). The store is open seven days a week.
