Welcome to the new Joppatowne Marina (formerly Gunpowder Cove) website, est. 2016 and located in the heart of Joppatowne Maryland. The Marina originally opened in 1966 and has been drawing boaters from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware since. The Marina has 270 wet slips all equipped with water/electric and 300 total high/dry racks both inside and outside. We offer 24 hour surveillance with gated access for security. The Marina provides fuel service (both 89 and 93 octane fuel) along with pump out service, ice, boat ramp, a marine repair shop and a parts/supplies store. There are clean bath houses and picnic areas with grills, There are several nearby restaurants that provide delivery and a nearby grocery store open 24 hours. Pets are welcome.
Our location gives you easy access to the open waters of the Upper Chesapeake Bay. From the Marina it is a short, speed restricted, ride to Gunpowder River. From there it is a quick (no speed limit) and scenic 7 mile ride to the Chesapeake Bay. These miles of smooth water are ideal for water sports and pleasure boating, while conservation efforts have resulted in a significant crab and fish population for sportsman. If you enjoy overnight stays on your vessel, Maxwell Point is a sheltered, deep and sandy bottomed cove. From Maxwell Point we are located just inside the Amtrak train bridge.
Future plans include upgrades throughout the property including mechanical upgrades, an entertainment pavilion, boat slips with lifts, new docks, a new boat ramp and much more. Come and join us for our 2018 season. Slips are still available.
The Marina will be organizing several events and getaways throughout the season, where slip holders can meet new friends, as well as come together with old ones. Come and join us at the opening of our new establishment in the 2018 boating season. It WILL be a notable time in the boating community.
