About the Indian River Marina

Located on the north side of the Indian River Inlet at Delaware Seashore State Park, the park's marina features many convenient services for boaters and fishermen. And it's just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and the Inland Bays - some of the finest fishing grounds on the east coast! The marina also hosts exciting annual events, including a Seafood and Art Festival, Fisherman's Flea Market, and the Annual Kids' Catch-All, which was named one of the top kids' fishing tournaments in the country by FishingBooker.com.
