The 10-acre property in Solomons that is now Spring Cove Marina first emerged as a marina in the mid-1960's as "Ranch Club Marina #1" when the Chesapeake Ranch Estates were first being established in southern Calvert County. Over the next 30 years piers and buildings were added, a swimming pool built, and it eventually emerged as privately owned facility named Spring Cove Marina. 

In 1988, Trevor and Liz Richards arrived in Solomons after circumnavigating the world on their 37' sailboat, "Wandering Star". They were hired to manage Spring Cove, and quickly set out to mold the marina into what is now one of the finest facilities on the Chesapeake Bay. By 1998 they were part owners of the company, and they continue to lead the marina toward success! Their son, Will, and daughter, Samantha now manage the daily operation of the Marina and strive to uphold the high standards of service and quality set by the former generation.

The Richards have worked to create a place of business that both patrons and employees want to call "home." We employ 18-full time staff members and pride ourselves on giving fair wages and competitive benefits, and especially in providing an environment where our employees want to work. On average, our current employees have served us for 15 years. Our two longest tenured staff members, Donnie and Terry, have been with us since the Richards arrived in 1988! The entire Richards family is grateful to our loyal and hard working employees, and we recognize that we cannot succeed without them.

We also hire an additional 10-12 seasonal employees during the summer months. We try to find local youth who are motivated to learn and we teach them to work hard and provide great customer service - Trevor refers to it as "Spring Cove University!" We are very proud of our entire staff, and hope that it reflects in the services we provide.

Spring Cove Marina defines a "Full Service" Marina - we are a one stop shop that can provide the ultimate Marina Experience. Our friendly, service first attitude backs up our amenity packed facility and our first class Boatyard.

We want to help you have a great boating experience, and to do that we work to deliver our services in such a way that allows for individuality and diversity. Our family focused culture welcomes all types of boaters, and we hope we can provide an experience that you'll remember forever! 

Whether you are stopping in for a night on your way down the ICW, visiting for a Holiday Weekend with a group of friends, or making one of our slips your home-away-from-home for many years, Spring Cove is the place for you. 

We are boaters too, and we understand the diverse needs of the modern boater. We are always working to improve our facility in order to provide that full service experience.
