Dec 2020: No change at the marina. Except the dock person was incredibly rude and obnoxious. Did not answer the radio when we called several times. Had to call by phone. Appeared ‘put out’ on helping us dock. Will consider a different marina next time. Jan 2019: same holds true on marina and staff. But, amenities need work. WiFi was awful. One dryer malfunctioning and no sign indicating. The marina office was 95% empty of drink/food items/supplies. If this is to be a full service marina, need to step up your game. We stayed at Thunderbolt for couple of days. The Marina was clean, bathrooms were clean, laundry room was clean but only one washing machine was available (other 2 were out of service). Staff very helpful. We also needed parts and service from Thunderbolt - all the personnel were wonderful. Had our parts within two days.
Been to the marina twice and been great both times. Excellent staff. Wanted to try the renovated restaurant, unfortunately closed on Monday’s.
Nov 19, 2020: stayed overnight at Waterside. Staff was good. The disappointment were the new slips having only finger piers. Any boat 35’ or longer had to potentially back into a slip. Dec 16, 2019: The marina has a great location and easy walk to downtown. It is neat and maintained. Bathrooms are a walking distance but clean. I know we were coming through in December, but we stayed five days and finding any staff around to answer questions or help with lines as we left - no one around. The wifi was absolutely awful - lucky to get two bars. The only advantage is the easy walk to downtown restaurants, shopping, etc.
Nov 20, 2020: stayed overnight at Coinjock and everything was good. Help on tying up was terrific, considering how quickly boats were coming. Ordered take-out dinner and it was delicious. All the staff were great. July 17, 2019: The staff are always terrific. The marina is neat and clean. General store within the main office is handy for picking up supplies. I know everyone raves about the restaurant, but I’m not impressed. Ordered a filet mignon, cooked medium. What I received was not a filet mignon and was over cooked. Again, the staff is wonderful, but food was average. 15 Dec 2018 - came by Coinjock again going South. Again, great staff who have the whole docking/fuel/pump out down to a science. Tried the restaurant again, my dinner was delicious - had a glazed salmon with soup and salad.
Anchorage has a great staff - Dockmaster Wayne Easton - is fabulous. Monthly fee for transient was reasonable. Nice lounge, laundry room, and bathrooms (though old) are clean. Easy walking distance to grocery store, restaurants, banks, etc. Plenty of areas to walk or ride bikes. Nice area to cook out, tables for eating outside, nice small pool. Three downsides: no good parking, no wifi, and though the docks are floating ones - the docks are old wood and need to be replaced. However, the advantages outpace the downsides and we'll return again.
Needed a slip to prepare for a hurricane. Zahniser’s was able to accommodate and was able to stay several days. Nice marina, bathrooms were very neat and clean. Laundry room had two each for washers and dryers. Staff were terrific.
22 Dec 2019: Stopped at Belhaven for two days - heading South. Greg, the Harbormaster, is always on top of things. Very helpful, knows everything going around Town. As always, the bathrooms and laundry room are neat and clean. Yes, it would be nice to have floating docks - but what's here works. That's the only reason to give four stars rather than five. The restaurants are terrific, everyone is friendly. July 2019: We’ve been here several times and enjoy every visit. Gregg, the Harbormaster, is always terrific, helpful for anything you need. The marina continues to make improvements. No additional charge for laundry. Bathrooms are clean and maintained. Easy access to walk into Town. 26 June 2018: The marina and staff are terrific. No charge for laundry. Bathrooms were clean. Nice central area with tables and gazebo to sit and talk, meet other boaters. Easy walk to town, good diners and restaurants.
26 July 2019: Came back to the charming town of Cape Charles and CCYC to have some work done i.e., hull sanded and painted and some general maintenance items. The support and service was fabulous from all the Staff. All the work was professional. Team was focused on all tasks. Will be back. We've been to Cape Charles Yacht Center several times - both winter and summer. Every time we come here, there are new changes. The new docks are fabulous. The Staff - Rob, Renee and Roger are wonderful. We always have work done on our boat while here and George (master mechanic/engineer) has always done a solid and professional job. Yes, I would love to see separate bathrooms for women/men and a laundry room. Easy walk into Town with great restaurants, shops, easy access to the beach.
First time at this marina. We had great help from the staff on getting our boat tied up. Excellent wifi, which is rare with many marinas. There was a chance of high winds and dockmaster came by to check our boat and tie up addl. lines. Depth can be a slight problem. We draw 5’ and some areas only a little over 6’.
Came to Atlantic Yacht Basin thinking we had a hull leak. Upon arrival, received great help with pump out and docking. Within the first hour, one of the main boat engineers came over and spent time on the boat in the engine room where we noticed water coming in. With additional checking, stated we did not have a hull leak and other things we needed to check. Very happy with the service and honesty.
We stayed at Spring Cove for three weeks while waiting for parts. Very nice marina. Excellent staff. Well thought out general store/gift shop. Nice and clean bathrooms. Great open spaces with lots of trees, grills, picnic areas. Will stay again when in the area.
We’ve stayed twice going North and South and the staff are terrific. Depth was no problem, we draw 5’. The general store is well equipped to either serve food or pick up refreshments.
First time staying at this Marina. Very nice and clean. Staff were terrific. Loaner vehicle available - $10.00 for two hours. Laundry and bathrooms clean and neat. Thought the cost of $2.00 per wash/dryer high. Couple of good restaurants within walking distance.
We've stayed at Harborwalk twice and enjoyed both times. Clean, well run, great staff. Easy to walk into town, good restaurants. Totally enjoyable.
Isle of Palms is terrific. We've been in both winter and summer. The Marina is right off the ICW. It is neat and clean. Bathrooms are clean. Laundry room is neat but small (they should consider re-designing and putting in stackable washer/dryers). The restaurant on-site is good for both lunch and dinner - whether you eat outside or in. The general store on-site is fabulous. Bikes and golf carts are easy to obtain.
We stayed at Jekyll Harbor Marina for several days and loved the whole area. The folks running the Marina were terrific. Provided info on sites to see, provided a golf cart for our use for the day. Restaurant next door was good. Restrooms and laundry room easy to access and clean.
Liked it here very much. Was our first visit to Carolina Beach. Easy to grab a mooring ball and tie-up. Reasonably busy but not overwhelming. Had no problem taking our kayaks to the dock - would be nice to have a ramp to slide the kayaks onto and make it easier to climb out. Fairly easy walk to the Boardwalk and beach. Had planned to just stay one night but extended two nights. Would definitely come back.
The marina is terrific - well protected within the island itself. Clean, neat and general store, restaurants, bikes/golf carts and ferry are within quick walking distance. Highly recommend.
The marina is nice, clean, easy to dock. Staff are nice and helpful. Bathroom and laundry facilities were clean. Wi-fi was a problem and non-existent. There is a loaner vehicle - which is great since any stores or restaurants are a driving distance.
Suntex Marina is located within a gated community. Nice marina, nice staff. Unfortunately, docks are old and need to be updated to floating docks. The pool and lounge are terrific. Laundry area is ok - small - but plans in place to expand. The women's bathroom is great. The men's bathroom - not so much - but plans for expansion. Uber is easy to get. But, if you plan to stay awhile, rent a car.
St. James Marina was relatively easy to get into. Depth at the entrance around 7.5 feet. Once into the marina, depth around 16-17 feet. Fortunately, had a side-tie, slips would have been difficult. Nice staff. Marina itself is neat and clean. The bathrooms for women/men are small - just one toilet and shower per bathroom. There is a restaurant - food was ok and prices reasonable. There is also a side shop where you can buy soup/salads/meat/cheese/sodas, etc. St. James is about 12 miles from town. We used Uber but it was 'touch and go' on getting a driver back to the marina after going out for dinner.
