The Philadelphia Marine Center is AWFUL! They don't dredge their slips! I see sailboats on the hard 1.5 hours either side of low tide, their ships store is almost non-existent, their gas/diesel station is old and never works well, and on top of that their service stinks.

Penns Landing, where management gives the impression they would rather not have boats in their marina is a short few blocks to Old City and even more restaurants. Zahav on Dock Street near 3rd is amazing and reasonably priced.

Take a transient slip at Phila Marine Center and enjoy the nightlife.
