Ditto Landing Marina
Ditto Landing marina is located off Hobbs Island Road just east of the 231 Bridge crossing the Tennessee River. The marina offers a safe haven for boats needing an overnight refuge from the rolling barge wakes in the big river as well as a great spot for skiers, wakeboarders and anglers to launch without trailering to either Guntersville or Decatur. Our dredged harbor is home to dozens of yachts up to 54 feet, as well as a building-full of smaller boats in dry storage.
Pioneer James Ditto came around the Great Bend of the Tennessee River in the early 1800’s. He landed amongst friendly Chickasaw Indians in the area known as the Chickasaw Old Fields. Today that area is known as Ditto Landing, and the point of Chickasaw Island is now called Hobbs Island.
Within a few years Pioneer Ditto built a trading post. A ferry boat carried travelers across the river by 1807. Amongst the customers, reportedly, were Andrew Jackson and Davy Crockett on their way to the Creek Indian War.
In 1824 the area became known as Whitesburg, which is a familiar name to area residents. It was named for salt trader James White. Ditto Landing became one of the first inland ports of entry for the United States and a prosperous trade hub and heartbeat of economic activity for the Huntsville area into the 1840’s.
Ditto Landing is Huntsville, Alabama’s gateway to the Tennessee River at MM334, mid-point of the waterway. With wet slips, dry storage, boat launch, campground, pavilions, walking and biking trails, a ship’s store, gas, diesel, and abundant transient dockage, Ditto is a North Alabama hidden gem.
