The Hyatt River Marsh Marina
caters to all ages, personalities
with family-friendly amenities
By Laura Dunn
Cambridge, Maryland’s River Marsh Marina has been voted “Best Resort Marina on the Bay” for nine years in a row by the readers of Chesapeake Bay Magazine. The River Marsh Marina, located at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort, Spa & Marina, opened in August 2002. It offers extensive amenities and entertainment, which tempts guests of all ages. With a championship 18-hole golf course, indoor and outdoor pools, private nature preserve, seven dining locations, and the newly renovated Sago Spa & Salon, it’s no wonder why it maintains such popularity.
The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort shares recreation and marina director John Harper with River Marsh Marina, who has worked there since its opening. Harper credits the dining experience for luring visitors. “Guests really enjoy catching and feasting on their own blue crabs, an Eastern Shore tradition,” Harper says. “Our Executive Chef Tony Breeze will also prepare any fish you catch to order at one of our restaurants.”
The marina has 150 slips that accommodate vessels up to 150 feet. There are annual, seasonal and monthly slips available, along with lifts and some floating dock space. Shore power has been upgraded from 208 to 240 volts, and ships store and restroom areas have been completely renovated.
Harper says a number of nearby marinas pale in comparison to River Marsh Marina. “There’s no other place on the Bay where you can go by boat to play golf, relax at the spa, zoom down a water slide, lay on the beach, take out a jet ski, dine at a variety of restaurants, play tennis, Frisbee golf, mini golf, and play volleyball, entertain your kids at Camp Hyatt, or a list of other things to do,” says Harper.
