Stiff drinks, shareable bites, harbor-front views and a full facility revamp await boaters at Baltimore’s hottest new dock and dine destination this summer.

Located in the Canton neighborhood, Lighthouse Point Marina boasts 400 new hyper-modern floating docks that accommodate vessels 35-300 feet. The former slips are replaced with high-quality composite, non-skid floating docks with full-length finger piers. The east dock is constructed with an attenuator to quell wake and wave action and protect vessels against chop. Oasis Marinas management company and Marine Monument Group began the revitalization in 2022, with contractor Dissen & Juhn Co. and manufacturer Meeco Sullivan completing a full reconstruction.

“Everything on the water from the sea floor up is brand new, and there wasn’t a single piece of old infrastructure used,” says general manager Joel Schlossberg. “One thing we’re proud of is 90% of the old infrastructure was recycled — everything from the concrete, foam in the floats, plastic that encases the foam, old piles and anything we could recycle — which was really cool.”

Upscale amenities include gate access via smartphone, in-slip pump-out, laundry facilities, pool access, and dock and dine at the newly revamped on-site restaurant, Drift Bar, open May to September. A fully remodeled marina office, fitness center and boater’s lounge are also in the works, as well as in-slip delivery service from Drift Bar. Enjoy a pontoon adventure on the harbor with Paddle Club Baltimore’s fun cruise boat docked at the marina.

The iconic lighthouse of Lighthouse Point is no ordinary beacon. The structure located on land behind the marina is a former 1800s licorice plant smokestack converted into a Chesapeake Bay-style lighthouse replica. The marina plans to restore the lighthouse with fresh paint and a new look, along with an expansion to the outdoor area including a building demolition that will allow for picturesque harbor views from a new lounge area.

The prime location in Canton’s lively community offers convenient access to dining, shopping and provisions within walking distance. Explore bars and restaurants housed in historic row houses in Canton Square or just across the water in Fells Point. Head to the Inner Harbor for family-friendly attractions such as the National Aquarium or the Maryland Science Center. Be sure to catch a summertime favorite located next to the marina, Canton Waterfront Park’s First Thursdays, a free once-a-month festival with live music and vendors from June to September.
