We were greeted and warmly and promptly. All four of us were novices but were given clear instruction and safety garments.
Already recommended York Marina to others.

Myself my wife and 4 friends hired a boat for my birthday in August. We live opposite the marina and I have wanted to hire a boat for a while so it was a great surprise for my birthday. The whole experience was great and the 1/2 day hire was just long enough to enjoy the river we went to York and then on to Poppleton and returned to Naburn. I would definitely recommend the boat hire.

Fantastic Setting Beside The River Ouse.
9 Pitches, Allocated on Arrival
Our Pitch Backed Onto The Car Park So No Privacy Whatsoever & Very, Very Noisy From Visitors Cars, Sliding Security Gates & Road Noise From The Adjacent B1222. Thought Somebody Must Have Moved Our Caravan To The A64!!!
Grass Was Very Long & Unkempt
Had A Fab Bacon Sandwich & Coffee At The Marina Cafe Enjoying The Spectacular View Over The River But Again The Grass Was Very Long, Clearly Not Cut For A While & Littered With Cigarette Ends & General Litter. Some Tables Remained Uncleared Since The Previous Day!
In Conclusion A Great Setting, Good Pubs & Public Transport Nearby. Very Noisy If You Are Unlucky With The Pitch Allocation & Sadly The Whole Place Just Needs Cleaning & Tidying!

We have had several weekends in our touring caravan at the marina and always enjoyed the great atmosphere created by the friendly staff in both reception and café / bar.
