Boats on the water at James Creek Marina

James Creek Marina

Dock Where The Potomac And Anacostia Come Together

James Creek Marina is located at the confluence of the Potomac, the Anacostia, and the Washington Channel directly east of Fort McNair. There are 297 wet slips that can accommodate vessels from 16 to 160+ feet. The docks are wooden floating structures with finger piers. Entrance to each dock is limited to James Creek Marina guests and visitors. James Creek has a winter de-icing system in place to keep the marina water in motion so that ice does not form during the colder months. The marina has a gas station with 89-octane unleaded, diesel, two-cycle oil and a pump out.
