Little Creek - Cove Marina

The Cove Marina, located at 1101 Okinawa Road (Bldg. 1517), is the full-service marina aboard JEB Little Creek. We serve active duty, retired military, and DOD personnel. For wet slip storage, we offer 84 concrete floating dock slips.

There is no better place for boaters and fishermen of all shapes and sizes to stop in and find what they need at bottom-dollar prices! Some of our amenities include well-stocked bait, tackle, and marine supply store, boat rentals, and a pump-out station. wash-down station, and boat ramp. Our aim is to always have what you need when you need it, but if we don’t, we’ll special-order any marine supply item and have it in stock the next day by nine o’clock.

Boat Ramp

Cove Marina has a boat ramp onsite, less than 3 miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel! Ramp fees are $5 per day, or $65 for a yearly ramp pass, which runs from October 1 to September 30 each year. Ramp passes are prorated to $35 starting in April. Patrons using the boat ramp must sign out each time they use the ramp. During store hours, patrons must sign out using the launch ramp log located in the store; otherwise, patrons may fill out a boat ramp envelope and put it in the dropbox located near the store entrance. After launching a boat, patrons may park their trailer and truck up near the road, directly ahead of the boat ramp. Patrons departing or entering the harbor must request permission to transit from Port Control using Channel 12 on VHF radio or by calling 757-462-7791, prior to crossing the orange buoy line. Patrons entering the harbor must stay by the buoy line to await an ID check after requesting transit. The entire harbor is a ‘No Wake Zone’.
