I know some members of Liberty Sailing Club. They all say they can't get out of their slips 1.5 hours either side of low tide. That is 3-hours they can't leave or enter their slips, twice a day--no way to run a marina.

This is a noisy marina, clubs, Dave and Busters, traffic on Delaware Ave and Ben Franklin Bridge, my experience is that it was more noise than Essington under the PHL take off and landing.

But it is a great location to take advantage of center city and the historic district, and it just feels cool to sail by the huddled masses along the Phila bulkhead.
