A note from George Stevens:

After 35+ wonderful years, I am retiring as President of Belle Haven Marina.  It has been my privilege to interact with thousands of adults and children to foster this community of recreation, fun, and exploration in our Alexandria backyard.  I look forward to continuing to teach both sailing and powerboat classes in the future.

The National Park Service is in the process of selecting a new concessionaire for Belle Haven Marina.  The transition to new management will take place in Spring of 2020. Until that happens we are unable to say when the marina will open for boating activities. 

Please join me in thanking the marina staff and all of you for making Belle Haven Marina such a special place.


-George Stevens - President






Sailing is the perfect activity for anyone who enjoys water sports and outdoor recreation. Sailing can be exciting or relaxing. You can compete in racing or take a leisurely sail with family and friends. Regardless of age, ability or limitation, sailing has something for everyone.

Our 3:1 student to instructor ratio, beautiful location and great boats are just a few reasons to sail with us. With a dedicated staff of people-oriented, professional sailors, we welcome the opportunity to show you just how much fun you can have sailing.

Give us a call (703) 768-0018 and we would be delighted to answer your questions. 

 Why do I love sailing!
