Very nice place. Communication could be better with the moorings. When we arrived we couldn’t get anyone to answer our hail and when the office finally answered the phone they said it was because they were busy with the Alabama (charters?) but the mooring field was so full and the Haven mooring balls were not marked as such (they are marked G&B Rentals??). Anyway it was a bit hairy moving for a while through the mooring field to find our mooring. As it stood there were poachers on all but one and so our friends had to wait u til a patrol boat came to move people who were not supposed to be on balls that we had reserved -they dont “assign” you a ball it’s just “pick up a mooring ball” and finally the. I’ve woman on the phone said “oh they are the ones closest to the break water rocks” so we could have used that info right away. But for the most part it was very nice. Nice city. The fact that it’s a dry Island made it a bit different for us as tourists. As my friend said “you shouldn’t have to work this hard to sit on the water and have a beer” But we lucked out to be there for a “first Friday” a city party I would recommend. Bonfire in the beach , live music, kids running all around. Very fun and nostalgic.
Great marina. Wonderful facilities. Cross current is heavy here INSIDE the slips. Time your entry on slack tide. Tie your lines well to be pushed off dock and lots of fenders when current pushing. Dock staff very helpful.
Renee made everything easy from clear directions to get into our slip and suggestions to help. The bathrooms and showers are clean and new and the facilities great. Not to mention the BEAUTIFUL view from the dock. Our stay was amazing. Easy access to the boat show and downtown. Only thing missing was in site laundry. But There is a laundromat in town. Overall we would highly recommend the marina. S/V Kalon
Dave and the crew here are absolutely amazing! From the moment we arrived they were precise with their instructions and help. Dave even offered and took us into town to grab a bite to eat and returned afterwards to bring us back. Even though they are busy they make time for everyone and things run smoothly with no confusion! Really a treat and we will be back !!
Amazing marina! Stock Island is by far one of the nicest full service marinas! Super clean and the staff is on top of making sure you are taken care of. From communication through the entrance to help with departure and everything in between they are five star. Laundry, showers, facilities and amazing restaurants and bar right there. You don’t even need to leave to have a most relaxed and satisfying stay. I was able to walk to a convenience store worry about where I was. Safe place. We cant wait to return! They really make you feel welcome even if you are there one night or 10,
Facilities:1 star- The marina is old and in need of updates. When we called upon entering to check which side we would need to have lines set up they said we would be between two fingers. All lines set up and they flagged us in between a set of pilings. The pilings had broken wooden hooks and no protection. The staff: 4 stars. Very helpful but don’t seem to be as experienced with larger sailing vessels. Will was great and the rest of the team. It was Christmas weekend so very very busy. 5 Star Shout Out to Mike the parts and service mechanic / manager. We needed a relay for our starter and he went out of his way to check the details; find the Yanmar part and even recommend possibly another part that was needed. when I went back to get the old part to make sure it was right , and my wallet to purchase the replacement and the additional , he told me to hold off on the one part because he didn’t want to sell me something I didn’t need. He even printed schematic forms and explained. You don’t get that in a lot of marina chandleries today!
