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!
