Somers Cove Marina Wins Readers Choice Award

By K King
Somers Cove Marina, owned by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, has earned the Delmarva Media Group’s 2013 Readers Choice Award for best marina in the Delmarva Peninsula.

“We try really hard to give our customers a great experience at Somers Cove, so we are really thrilled to be voted Reader’s Choice,” said Manager Mary Taylor. “All of us who work here know what a special place Crisfield and the waters here are. It’s just nice to be recognized by the customers.”

Located in Crisfield, the marina boasts more than 500 slips, and is a favorite stop for boaters traveling the Intracoastal Waterway, and the Tangier and Pocomoke sounds. Among its many amenities are a pool, fuel dock, pumpout station, and boat launch ramps.

Somers Cove is managed by the Somers Cove Marina Commission in cooperation with DNR. Home to numerous working watermen’s boats, the marina was christened in 1962 by then Governor, J. Millard Tawes. Somers Cove remains a key part of the Crisfield community, hosting the annual Tawes Crab and Clam bake, the Hard Crab Derby and July 4th fireworks in conjunction with city and county partners.
