Indian River Marina


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!

Charter Fleet and Head Boat

The Indian River Marina is home to Delaware's premier charter fishing fleet. With direct access to the ocean and all the hottest fishing grounds, our experienced captains will provide you with an outstanding day of fishing. Our head boat, the Judy V., offers 4-hour and 8-hour excursions specializing in inshore bottom fishing – bring your own rod, or include a rod rental with your reservation.

Visit our Charter Boats page in our Adventures section to learn about our charter fleet and head boat or make a reservation.

Wet Slips

The Indian River Marina’s 274-slip floating dock system, which includes water, 30- or 50-amp service (dependent on slip size) and a dock box, all of which is included in the slip rental. The marina also provides dock carts to transport your boat supplies from your vehicle to your boat, and back. We offer 25-, 35-, 45- and 50-foot slips for the season, year-round, or a combined annual contract which includes wet slip dockage for the season and discounted winter haul out and storage.
