About the Marina
The James City County Marina is located on the historic Powhatan Creek, behind Jamestown Island and across the street from Jamestown Settlement and Jamestown Beach Event Park.
View our Park Fees for details about our boat ramp launch, rentals and storage fees.
Marina Store & Concessions
The Marina Store, located on the ground floor, sells bait, tackle, marine batteries and supplies, ice cream, snacks, cold drinks and more.
The Marina’s close proximity to the Colonial Parkway, Historic Jamestowne, Jamestown Beach Event Park and the Virginia Capital Trail make it the perfect location to start a leisurely bike ride. Take a ride on the Colonial Parkway to the Yorktown Battlefield and back, a great opportunity for a long bike ride along the scenic James and York rivers. Trek Hybrid, Comfort and kids bikes are available to rent year-round.
Paddle Craft Rentals
If you prefer a quiet paddle along historic Powhatan Creek, the James City County Marina is your kayak rental destination. Paddle the waterways where Captain John Smith and others traveled as they settled on Jamestown Island. Canoe, kayak and paddle board rentals are available to rent year-round, or for a nominal fee, you may launch your own personal watercraft.
