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 and 98 fixed 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: an all-new, well-stocked bait, tackle, and marine supply store, boat rentals, a pump-out station, fuel pier, wash-down station, and boat ramp. We are open daily, and are more than happy to assist you in any way possible. 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.
All year round, Cove Marina provides patrons the opportunity to get out on the water and have a great time. Don’t have a boat? Not a problem. We have rental boats trailered and ready for launch, whether you’re looking to launch on-site or out in town! Our 19’ Mckee Crafts, 21’ Carolina Skiff, and 20’ Boulton power boat are all available for rental year-round; just provide a copy of your state boating safety certificate to qualify! Once you feel the rush of the salt-air or the thrill of a big catch, you’ll be hooked!
Wet SlipsWet slips are available for monthly rental, including 20A, 30A, & 50A electricity and water. We can currently accommodate boats up to 46 feet overall length at our floating piers, and 28 feet overall length at our fixed piers. Military/DOD identification, proof of insurance, boat registration or Coast Guard documentation, Coast Guard Vessel Safety Inspection, and a current credit card are required to complete a slip contract at Cove Marina. Patrons are required to list MWR Cove Marina as an ‘Additional Interest’ on their insurance policy. Contracts must be renewed annually, and all information must be kept up-to-date. Pricing for wet slips is as follows:
- Floating Piers: $7/foot per month
- Transients: $1.50/ft daily, or $8/ft for up to one month, whichever is less
- Fixed Piers: $5/foot per month
Boat RampCove 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 – 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 drop box 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’.

To reserve a boat, please call anytime 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Payment must be made up front. Cancellations must be provided at least 24 hours prior to rental date.
