We just spent 5 nights at Dockside Marina and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The docks were in excellent condition; the marina staff -- Dockmasters Cammie and Capt Joe, dockhand Robbie -- were friendly and very helpful; the docks were secure (gated access and a security guard that patrolled the area throughout the evening); the two pools were refreshing after a long day on our boat; the views were amazing from the docks; and the marina showers for those of us staying on boats were very clean. We ate at the tiki bar one evening and the wait staff were friendly and the food was generous and tasty for the price. All around, it was a fantastic stay and we will definitely be back. I have one word of caution for fellow boaters: be aware that the current RIPS through the inlet and thus the marina slips. Slack tide is 2-2.5 hours AFTER the tide charts. If you're not an experienced captain, make sure to time your arrival/departure with slack tide and make sure you have plenty of docklines to secure your bow, stern, and spring lines. We thought we were arriving at slack tide but were blissfully unaware of the 2 hour delay. Regardless, our dockhand Robbie helped us bring our 37' boat into the slip with no bumps or bruises. After the first arrival, the two of us were easily able to maneuver in and out of our slip over the next several days by timing our day to the slack tide. Don't let the current deter you -- this property is DEFINITELY worth the visit. (One suggestion for the Resort Manager: the icing on the cake would be a small fan in the marina showers. Granted we were staying at the peak of summer but the shower rooms were a bit warm, even while taking a cool shower. May I also suggest a shelf to place a toiletry bag while showering.)
