Great communication from marina, and very helpful staff when docking. Facilities were very clean, and pool was great. Free bikes was really nice so we could get out and see some things nearby - the Maritime museum is worth a visit. There is a huge white tent set up for slipholders with tables and grills which was really handy. There's a lot within walking distance (~1.5 mi). The marina was recently bought by Safe Harbor and they closed the onsite restaurant. Bummer. The pool bar is not open either. The G-Dock slips (I was in G-20) are VERY narrow (36' boat; 12'9" beam). I barely fit, and my crew had to manhandle the entry a bit. Larger boats (38-40 feet) had to take multiple tries to get into the slip, since the marina wants you backed in. And because the distance from G dock to H dock is minimal it required us to use a line around the outside bollard to pivot so we didn't risk fending off boats on H dock before the rudder had bite (you can't begin your turn until you're all the way in the lane between G and H dock due to how narrow the exit from the slip is). The power plug was a single 30 amp, which we made due with, though we really needed either a 50 amp or two 30-amp plugs. Hopefully Safe Harbor will do some much needed updates to the slips to modernize them.

Marina Response:
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us a review. When we have larger groups staying with us, we do our best to keep the majority of the boats together. If the slip does not have the appropriate power requirement, please don't hesitate to let us know so we can help with a solution immediately upon arrival. We are happy to report that the marina is slated for major renovation this winter, including floating docks, new power and increased fairway space, allowing more room to maneuver. Our on-site restaurant has been undergoing renovations and is slated to open this fall under new ownership. We hope to see you again soon!

Love the improvements at this marina. Floating docks are excellent. Staff friendly, helpful and very responsive on Dockwa. Within easy walking distance to town. Highly recommend.
