By Sail or Prop

Located on the Perrin River, a protected harbor just past Jenkins Neck, Perrindise Marina & Club is still carried on some chart books as Cooks Landing Marina. The approach to the Perrin River is well marked and easy to follow. A flashing “PR” in the middle of the York River identifies the Perrin River on the north shore.  After passing this marker, be careful of the scattered fish traps and the submerged pilings. Go northwest to the nearby “2”, which marks the large sandbar off Jenkins Neck. Once clear of red “2”, you will quickly spot “4” and day beacon “6” in the entrance to the Perrin River to starboard. There is 7 to 10 feet of water in the channel, but it can shoal quickly to the sides, so stay within it. Marker “7” marks a sandbar to port.  After passing “8”, bear hard to starboard to “9” and stay in the middle of the channel. Once clear of these markers, you will see green day beacon “11” and the marina on your starboard. 30 NM North of Mile 1 in Norfolk, VA on the Perrin River.

The marina is twenty minutes from the Newport News Williamsburg International Airport (PHF), approximately 1.5 hours from the Norfolk Airport (ORF), approximately twenty minutes to the Williamsburg Jamestown Airport (JGG), and approximately 60 minutes to the Middle Peninsula Regional Airport (W97).
