Norfolk Marinas

Hi. we’re leaving Ft. Lauderdale, FL. for Charleston, SC, on Thursday; then in about 5 weeks headed for Norfolk VA. Any idea which marina around Norfolk/Hampton makes most sense to leave the boat at (8’4 Draft) from a convenience/security point of view? Regards Phillip

Hi Phillip: We like Atlantic Yacht Basin on the ICWE (Chesapeake is the city)–just S of the locks. Great security, good prices, nice folks. That is where BEOWULF is currently docked. It is about a two-hour passage from Hampton Roads, and you have to ask the highway 64 bridge to open 24 hours in advance. The AYB folks can tell you how to deal with the bridge. Regards–Steve
