Great stay. Staff was helpful, facilities nice, good boaters lounge. Only thing stopping me from 5 stars is no Wi-Fi at the docks - only at the dock office. A couple of repeaters on each dock?

This marina is in an ideal location in downtown Bradenton and within walking distance to great hotels, restaurants, and shops. The staff members are helpful and courteous, and all the amenities are updated. Well protected with large fuel dockage and easy access in and out. The marina mostly caters to larger vessels, but I truly appreciate them finding room for our boat (Pursuit 235 DC) over the Memorial Day Weekend. This was our third stay and we're looking forward to returning soon.

Marina Response:
Stephen, Thank you for your kind review. We are happy that you chose to stay with us this Memorial Day Weekend. We wish you and yours well. Until next tide, Cynthia

New docks very nice, however had slip on ramp connecting floating dock to access gate. Reported incident to marina manager, but was not contacted about my condition or corrective action. WiFi had weak signal at A-39 dock. Could not find recycle containers. Given gate code for dock access, however numbers were worn off entry keypad. Great individual head/showers. Dock staff very friendly and helpful. Good meal at Pier 22 restaurant.

The marina, docks and facilities are top notch. One unusual thing to report is that they closed early on Christmas Eve and didn’t bother to alert us. With the help of friendly boaters we just picked our own slip.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your kind review. Apologies for not alerting you in advance that we would be closing early on Christmas Eve. We are open 7 days a week all year round except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve after 12 noon, Christmas Day & New Year's Day. I'm glad our boaters were able to assist you. We do have a great group of boaters and staff.

We stayed here a few years ago before the marina was remodeled. Great location. Easy walk to downtown and restaurants. New marina has nice floating docks. Facilities are the same as before, pool and bathrooms. Bathrooms maybe upgraded a bit. WiFi has been replaced with wired Ethernet at each power pedestal. Great if you have Ethernet cable and router or other to plug it into. (We didn’t).

Marina Response:
Uklelegirl, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Thank you for your complements regarding our floating docks. Yes, our pool was remodeled with new marcite, tile, pavers and pool furniture. We completely remodeled our restrooms and showers with new tile & fixtures & added a boater's lounge upstairs which has a computer with internet access. In addition, we added a new awning, lighting, & landscaping. Since your vessel is a catamaran and a wide beam, the only location we had for you for the holiday weekend was on the T-head of B dock. This time of year, we usually have very limited availability. B Dock is setup more for our long-term customers, and is hard wired for internet, which provides greater speeds and less lagging. The ethernet connection is located on the power pedestal at each slip. We have ethernet cables available for loan if needed. We apologize that we didn't meet your expectations regarding the wi-fi services.

Staff was helpful at the dock upon arrival and with a pumpout later. Access to the Riverwalk and downtown restaurants and pubs was great. The marina and city are quite dog-friendly.

Awesome floating docks. Restrooms and showers very clean. Nice ice cream parlor right in premises. Pool very nice. We were on dock A and WiFi did not reach our boat. When I mentioned this to the receptionist she seemed indifferent. She said SHE had WiFi at the office. (Because she is sitting right where the WiFi emanates from!). So the lack of WiFi is the reason for the rating of 3.

I sincerely apologize if our front desk attendant didn't thoroughly explain our internet services. Yes, there is Wi-Fi available on the pool deck. A Dock however is hard wired for internet, which provides greater speeds and less lagging. The ethernet connection is located on the power pedestal at each slip.

The Twin Dolphin Marina is very nice. The facilities are clean and easily accessible and direct access to downtown Bradenton is a plus. Most of all the staff is very courteous and helpful. They were quick to answer on the radio when calling in and provided excellent assistance catching us on the dock. Highly recommend!

Couldn't say enough above the facilities and especially the staff. We encountered engine issues on the way,and being fifty miles from our home port..I was lost as to who I could get to come to the marina and diagnose and repair the problem. So,up to the marina office I went to see if they could be of assistance..within two seconds after explaining our dilemma, Sean (hope that's the correct spelling) went over to the wall and pulled out a card and said this is the guy you want to call..he can fix you up. I called,and within an hour and a half the technician was there and diagnosed the issue,and proceed with the repair. If Sean had not taken the initiative, it would not of had the happy ending that it did. Now,about the marina facilities. All new floating fingers with shore power and fresh water. Very wide and accomodating,lots of light with great Security. Swimming pool,freshly rehabbed shower rooms, tv,computer,reading room.All very well done. Conveniently located right next to the River Walk,which is a great stroll along the river. Lots of places to see and eat. So..after reading this would you think I would HIGHLY recommend this place..FIVE STARS doesn't do it justice!!

Trans slips were right by the highway so it was Loud. WiFi only worked at pool. No ice bin for boaters. Instead Ice was $2 A bag when the office was open. Pump out service not offered on Sunday. Kind of expensive for the opportunities listed above.

Really a very nice place to spend a week. Beautiful secure floating docks, friendly knowledgeable dock staff, new pool, spotless independent restroom/showers (6) in a very nice and friendly town. The town has a beautiful 1.5 mile river walk. Two of our favorite restaurants are O’Bricks on Main and Sage Brisket off 14th. Even on a -1’ minus tide we had 10’ of water all the way to the Marina, including the Marina Docks. 5 Star.

With the new floating docks and the upgraded facilities this marina is by far the nicest in the area. The service is great, the amenities are excellent and the location can't be beat. We have lived aboard at Twin Dolphin Marina for 10 years and would highly recommend it to anyone. The River Walk and downtown area are an added bonus!

Staff was friendly, dockhands greeting us for arrival. Wonerful people on Dock G! rationale for 4 star... When we checked in was told wifi was out, struck by lightening a "few days ago", and only one bike available for guests. Enjoyed hanging at Caddy's- live music, and wonderful dinner at Pier 22. Would stay here again.
