We were fortunate to be docked on B Dock. Both A and B Docks are newer ones and are in good shape. The other docks in the marina seem to be in need of replacement, so go for a slip on A Dock or B Dock. The staff are very nice and helpful. Electrical service was good. In harbor complimentary w-fi was spotty and very slow.

T%he Marina strafe was very helpful. The issue was the lack of workable electrical units on D dock. With help we found a way to make it work.

We had a great overnight stay at Ballena Isle Marina on our 40' sailing catamaran and are so happy with our experience. The side-tie guest slip is beautiful and updated, and the fuel dock is updated as well. The staff are wonderful and we could not recommend this marina enough!

The docks are beautiful! The office staff is incredibly friendly. Fabulous restaurant In our opinion, the nicest marina on the island of Alameda.

Our assigned slip did not have 50 amp power as it was shared with another boat. There are limited restaurant options, and some of the docks are in disrepair. We spend only one night there, used our generator, and managed just fine.

Overall good experience. Location is very nice. Short walk to town. On site manager very helpful and friendly. The only negative is the marina isn’t really set up for short term visitors (they may not want them) no access to showers or laundry

Great marina to stay at. The marina mart is run by a lovely woman that was very sweet. We even attended a Halloween gathering with food and great people. I would highly suggest this marina

I have come to Bellena Isle Marina in the fall for the last five years. Since Safe Harbor with Cindy and Jan took over, the Marina has improved every year! Yes, there are still some old docks but I'm everything works. Each time I come there are more improvements and more new docks. The local restaurant Pier 29 at the end of the docks always friendly with excellent food.

Docks need repair. Guest restroom needs attention. However, the staff is excellent and very accommodating. No public transportation available and the office girl , Jan, drove us to West Marine and came to get us. An extremely nice gesture.

This is a beautiful, protected marina. It has several amenities such as a store, and restaurant. One of the best in the Bay Area. The staff went out of their way to make sure all was good. To top off how good they are, I came in about 45 minutes past closing and they even waited for me. I'll be back.

We needed to leave our boat unattended for 10 days while waiting for weather to clear for our trip up the coast. The marina was clean, safe, and very accommodating. Highly recommended.

beautiful, nice quiet and clean. People are friendly on the island. There's a nice restaurant nearby for brunch too after docking called Pier 29. We had our food on the outdoor patio overlooking the water

We were in a large slip on A dock, which was a great location. We had plenty of power and nearby water hook-up, and the people on the dock were very friendly! It was very quiet overnight, which was awesome. And, of course, we were close to some of our favorite biking and kayaking. Thank you for a great weekend!
