About the Marina

James City County operates the Marina, formerly known as Eco Discovery Park. The James City County Marina is located on the historic Powhatan Creek, behind Jamestown Island and across the street from Jamestown Settlement.

Park Fees

View our Park Fees for details about our boat ramp launch, rentals and storage fees.


The marina’s close proximity to the Virginia Capital Trail and Jamestown Island make us the perfect location for a leisurely bike ride. Take a ride on the Colonial Parkway to Yorktown and back, a great opportunity for a long bike ride along the scenic James and York rivers. Trek Hybrid, Comfort and kids bikes are available to rent year-round.


If you prefer a quiet paddle along historic Powhatan Creek, we are your kayak rental destination. Paddle the waterways where Captain John Smith and others traveled as they settled on Jamestown Island.
