Kelly makes every day at Kelly's Brighton Marina fun. We've been here several times, and rain or shine, we always enjoy ourselves. The rentals are reasonable, and they take care of your license right there. The shop has everything you need...or you can bring your own supplies and enjoy the deck and firepit. RV camping is also available onsite, first... More

Kelly's freshly cooked crab just simply can't be beat. Cooked in saltwater, this year's crab was some of the best ever. The clams were small like we like 'em. Highly recommend this marina! Cool that you can rent rings but I'm happy to let someone else let them catch mine.

Thanks for the repeat visit :) Of course fresh crab is worth repeating any time, but we are very happy that you chose us for your seafood "fix"!! And don't tell anyone, but I kind of don't mind someone else catching my dinner for me as well :)) See you next time ~ More

Called ahead for fresh crab. We didn't have time to go crabbing ourselves. As soon as we arrived they grabbed our crabs from the tank in the back and put them in the water to boil. 15 minutes to cook the crab. There were picnic tables to sit and eat on but we were taking ours to go. While waiting,... More

Check your tide table and if the tide is coming in mosey on down and rent a crab ring. Friendly helpful. Good during the summer, November wind and rain was brutal. Great parking.

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon to purchase one crab and a pound of clams for dinner. ($24+ tip) Marina was busy and we placed our orders and waited the 20+ minutes for our crab to be cooked. Staff was friendly; good system, pick out crab, go inside to pay then check back in 20 minutes or so. Staff... More

So happy I discovered this place! We had beautiful weather so the water was smooth and we hired out a boat for 2 hours while catching crabs. You get to eat the crabs you catch, they cook them for you when you bring them back. You're almost guaranteed to catch lots of crabs although many will be too small to... More
