Special Programs Slated For Fall
Whether your interests lean toward spooky Halloween thrills, learning a new skill, or simply getting outdoors to appreciate the wonders of autumn, we've got plenty of activities for the whole family in store this month. Check out our upcoming programs!
Marina Voted #1 By Coastal Style
The Indian River Marina in Delaware Seashore State Park was recently named downstate's Best Marina/Fishing Center by readers of Coastal Style magazine, and it's easy to see why. In addition to top-of-the-line wet slips and dry storage, slipholder discounts and services, bait and tackle sales, charter boat reservations and more for boat owners and anglers, the marina offers beautiful cottages, gift items, fresh seafood sales, and hosting for weddings and celebrations, as well as great food, good times and lively summer entertainment at Hammerheads Dockside, the marina's on-site restaurant!
