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.
