Setting — Tucked up quiet Spicer Creek, Miss Chris Marina is anything but. A constant flow of activity spins from the tourist operations, the sport fish charter fleet, the party boats, the kayak rentals, the private seasonal boats, and the overnight transients. The atmosphere is tinged with a bit of funky, old-time Jersey Shore and it's rather fun. Coolers, bait boxes, traps and hoses sprawl across the solid by time-worn wharf that leads to the recently renovated docks. An occassional umbreallaed table or garden bench provides a good vantage point to take in all the action and enjoy the view across the salt marsh.

Marina Notes — Fuel dock & pump-out. Discount for Boat US members on dockage & fuel. Picnic tables along dock area. Well-stocked Dancing Dolphin Gift Shop. Miss Chris II fishing boat offers 2 eight-hour trips daily at 8am & 7pm. Sea Star III offers a six-hour trip at 9am. Lady Chris offers 2 four-hour trips daily at 8am & 1pm. Deep-sea ocean & bay fishing. Explore the salt marsh with kayak or boat rentals. 2 hour guided kayak tours available daily at 10am or sunset set, full moon & birding tours. Kayak sales. Charter fishing fleet- Lone Star (782-1562) & Canyon Clipper (374-4660). Whale & dolphin watching, bird watching, dinner cruises, sightseeing tours. All on-site. Bathhouse: Very basic heads. Shower available at boat sales office for transient guests.

Notable — Tours galore on-site. Splendid location close to shopping, restaurants & beach. Mayer's Tavern, across the street facing the marina, serves pub fare. The Lobster House is nearby with indoor & outdoor dining & a fresh fish market. Explore the Cape May Antique Center, just minutes away on foot. For additional shopping, walk or trolley to the Washington Street pedestrian mall (884-0555). There's something for everyone. Stop in at the Ugly Mug for a cold beer on a hot day or if ice cream is your fancy, visit Uncle Charley's Ice Cream. Counter service is available at Della's 5 & 10.
