About this club
Two Rivers Marina on the James & Chickahominy rivers
Location in reference to body of water
We operate at Two Rivers Marina in Williamsburg, VA situated on the James River with near immediate access to the beautiful Chickahominy River. These two historic rivers are rich with wildlife, waterfowl, and breathtaking scenery for the explorer in all of us.
Two Rivers Marina is a private marina in conjunction with the renowned and exclusive Two Rivers Country Club. A distinctive marina and quaint waterfront community, Two Rivers’ grounds and facilities are meticulously maintained. The marina boasts value-added features like floating docks, an easily accessible fuel pier, clean bathhouses, and secure parking.
What is there to do from this marina
The possibilities are endless here in Williamsburg. Members enjoy watersports, fishing, exploring, cruising, and what we call “destination boating”. Destinations like the Blue Heron Restaurant on the Chickahominy riverfront or the newly renovated James Landing Grille at the Kingsmill Marina, found downstream on the James. Both welcome boaters like you for dockside dining & cocktails. Some members appreciate the historic views from the water like seeing the ships at Jamestown, the Captain John Smith memorial, or perhaps the US Navy’s retired fleet comprised of approximately 22 naval vessels moored in the middle of the James.
What about bird and nature watching? It is not uncommon to see Osprey, Heron, White Cranes, and Bald Eagles while boating. When it comes to watersports fun, we have that covered as well. The Chickahominy is a fresh water tidal river and there are no stinging jellyfish to contend with! With plenty of bank to bank width, the kids will have a blast skiing, tubing, knee boarding, and wakeboarding. There’s even a few sandbar hangouts perfect for anchoring up, turning on the tunes, then wading and swimming in waist-deep water.
The location offers a full gambit of choices for fishing as saltwater, brackish, and freshwater fishing are all within 30 minutes of port. If you like cruising, then gather the family or invite some old friends out for a nice wine & cheese cruise, a fried chicken picnic, or a unique but fun double date. Boating creates a great change of pace and a perfect escape from the mundane. Come join the fun.
What type of boats members have access to
Our Fleet includes a variety of pontoon, fishing, watersport, cruising, and family boats for you to enjoy. Variety is indeed the spice of life! The fleet is maintained to a high standard of cleanliness and functionality. Most of our boats are equipped with GPS chart plotters to make exploring a little easier and safer. All boats have a waterway chart, a VHF marine radio, and all USCG required safety equipment on board. We invite you to experience the many social and boating pleasures that await you as a member of the Carefree Boat Club of Williamsburg.
