  • An All-Around Great Place to Visit

    We stay at Kingman every year and it’s always a pleasure. The staff is friendly and always there to help. We always get a great meal at The Chart Room where this year there is plenty of outdoor seating and CDC guidelines are being followed. Nearby Bassett’s Island has a nice beach with warm water. It’s an all-around great place to visit!

  • “Great Staff – Helped Me in 911”

    Unfortunately/embarassingly i have to share this experience. Recently I tied up at a mooring and got transported in for lunch at the Chart Room. After the meal we were transported back to the mooring. The young lady asked what mooring and I said U16 and she said we are here – but no boat. We looked to the right and about 400 yards away my boat was helplessly drifting away. She immediately called into home base at Kingman and requested another boat, since her launch couldn’t sail across the apparent shallow water afar. Within minutes, two young men in a boat bee-lined to my boat, secured it and brought it back safely to the mooring.

    The coolness, coordination of efforts and a happy ending must be shared by all of those involved here. The boat wasn’t secured enough to the mooring, my fault. Disasaster was averted by this obvious well trained staff. Thank goodness, the boat didn’t hit any other boat, rocks, wall, etc…..the stars lined up for this runaway boat of 22 feet. What clearly could have been a monumental disaster was quickly taken care of by the staff. Kudos to the Kingman staff.

  • Thank You for Your Comments and Reviews!

    I usually spend a few weeks a summer at Kingmans coming or going for vacation. The mooring area is well protected, the launch service is good and the yard seems to provide a full range of services. The nearest food and 7-11 are about a 1 mile walk north, although the marina has a small store.
