The folks in the marina are very helpful, and we had no difficulty backing our 57' trawler into a slip. The place has fixed docks which did not match the level of our boat's decks, so it was a bit of a climb up from our stern deck. The dock was not long enough to get to our forward gate, which would have made exit and entry easier, as would having gone into the dock head-in; but that would have made it more difficult to plug into dock power. It was easy to get around using Uber, but there really were no facilities (restaurants, stores, etc.) in easy walking distance. There are good places to eat in town and around the corner (a fifteen dollar Uber ride). There is a doggie park nearby, but there is some grass (with a supply of waste bags) just outside the gate.
Nice place. Small marina with interesting places around it. Easy to get into and out of, right in downtown Miami. Dock guy is helpful and friendly. We will be back there shortly. The only negatives are that, because it is small, the staff is not there full time, and it has fixed (as opposed to floating) docks.
Don't let them put you on docks on the 'Disney' side of the harbor. Access from land to those docks is severely restricted. Some of them (K and L in particular) are accessible by foot or bike, but are a long walk from the restaurants and shops on the other side.
The folks there are very helpful. They put my 57 foot boat on the face dock, which was better than one might have expected. No really bad motion from passing wakes. The only real issues were that Uber couldn't figure out where to pick us up. We went across the canal to one of the restaurants at Barefoot Landing for dinner, and that required an Uber ride. Two of the Uber drivers we dealt with came to one side of the bar, the third to the other side. It has to do with passing through a gate that controlled access to some parts of the complex.
We were just passing through, but decided to extend our stay. This is a relatively small marina that can accommodate boats of a wide range of sizes. One nice touch is a small fleet of golf carts available to transient boaters to get into town for groceries or restaurants. The folks on the docks are helpful with advice on where to go in the town, which is just far enough from the marina that some form of transportation is necessary, and the golf carts do admirably. The marina has wifi that works well and can do fuel service.
In their store you can buy a number of things, including a t-shirt that asks 'where in the hell is coinjock? Well, if you are going south on the ICW and don't do the dismal swamp route, you are likely to break your run at Coinjock. It has a rustic little restaurant that specializes in prime rib of beef but does other stuff as well. If you intend to eath the prime rib, be sure to reserve yours ahead of time, because they do run out. The marina has one very long dock that is easy to get at. One might be concerned about being exposed to wakes of passing boats, but it is in a 'no wake' zone and people generally observe that when going by. Fuel and pumpout are available just about everywhere along that dock, and the hands are friendly and helpful.
Waterside is a great marina, particularly if you are starting a trip down the intracoastal waterway. It is located right in the downtown part of Norfolk, and it has a good seawall to shield your boat from swells from ships passing by. The dock hands are helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, when we were there, there was some sort of festival going on and the restaurants on the land side were full of teenagers. Fortunately, there are many other really good restaurants in the area: just walk up Granby Street. Luce is a few blocks up and is a very good Italian style restaurant. We didn't need fuel or pumpout services, so I can't say anything about how well Waterside does them.
The marina is out in the boonies of eastern Virginia, at the end of the left bank of the Rappahannock river. It is a small marina with a somewhat difficult entry: the channel in is narrow and shallow: we have a four foot draft and had one and one half foot under us at the minimum. The marina has a private beach and a nice large swimming pool. It also has a bar that serves fairly good but not exotic food. Looked like a relaxing place to chill out for a few days, although we were there only one night.
Charleston Marina is in a great place in Boston Harbor. It is convenient to Boston and Cambridge. It has no fuel dock, but there are other fuel docks close by. It is a bit awkward arranging a pump out, but it can be done. The marina has a parking lot, but it is usually 'full', meaning it is reserving spaces for someone else. Use Uber or Lyft rather than renting a car.
The staff is helpful. But they put us on a face dock that is exposed to wake from many passing ships. Very roly. After a day they put us on their fuel dock, which was better but had no services. The marina is small, exposed to a lot of passing traffic and has very little in the way of services. There are about four restaurants on the street next to the marina, none of them very attractive.
The marina is on the Cape Cod canal, near the Cape Cod Bay end, and just next door to the Sandwich power plant. It is well protected so we had no motion of the boat overnight. There is a good spot to walk the dog, and it has two restaurants. The one we went to was really jumpin' but they found a spot for us. The place also sells fuel. We bought 400 gallons of Diesel at a price that is not out of line with other places. (Still expensive). The folks there were friendly and helpful.
Provincetown is a great place to visit. Lots of very good restaurants, things to see and lots of very strange individuals walking around. The marina is right in the center of things, is easy to get into and out of, and the staff is very helpful.
The approach from Vineyard Sound, through Canapisit channel, is rather tricky and requires close attention. The channel into the pond on which the marina is located is not as challenging as the guide books say, but still requires care. The dockmaster and others around the dock are attentive and helpful. There is a guy there selling lobsters and a small cafe on the dock. But aside from these and a very small grocery store up the hill a ways, there ain't much to Cuttyhunk or Gosnold, the town. It is a good place to be restful while on the way from somewhere east or west to someplace else west or east (or north)
Harbormaster was responsive and helpful in directing us to the mooring. But the numbered mooring wasn't there! We were directed to take the next one and that worked. The only real problem was that we could not identify a usable dinghy dock. Better was the launch service, which was quick and inexpensive.
We asked for a tee end, they gave us a tee end. Directions for finding the dock were excellent. Restaurant was quite good. We didn't need any additional services, so I cannot comment on their mechanics, etc. But for an overnight stop between New York and Newport, this one was excellent.
Marina is in a good spot, and in and out are straightforward, although you have to be careful of ferry boat traffic in New York. The folks are helpful and friendly (and considering it is New York, that is remarkable). The one negative was that the restaurant in the marina building was closed and the other restaurant on site had a private party. Poor planning on someone's part.
