Formerly known as the Kinsale Marina, this marina is located in the heart of Kinsale and adjacent to the steamboat landing. The property was originally the site of a tomato canning factory in the 1880s. In 1956, more than a decade after the tomato canning factory closed, local Harry Lee Arnest, Jr. converted it into a marina. Here he sold everything from Johnson outboards, to Browning shotguns, to chocolate milkshakes and created a lively riverside hub. His granddaughter purchased the property in 2020 and is reviving it as a marina. The marina has a fleet of kayaks and canoes that can be rented to explore the Yeocomico River.
