Very nice clean Marina. Staff are super friendly and accommodating. Close to nice restaurants and beautiful parks. Washrooms and showers are kept very clean. Great place to spend time in Niagara Region.
I'm not sure where to start as there are so many things wrong with the marina. It is starting to become rundown since our first visit there as things worsened as time progressed. Prices are not consistent and depend on whether or not you are liked. Staff is rarely reachable on the VHF channel and the office hours are irregular. Often times the security system isn't working and people who are not members have access to areas they shouldn't. There have been several thefts due to lack of security. There are many rotting and loose dock boards as well. The staff are very kind, however they are totally overwhelmed. The bathrooms are not kept clean and the pump-out constantly malfunctions. The on-site restaurant was open for about a month and then closed. They don't seem to be able to keep anyone running it for long. I would suggest Port Dalhousie Yacht Club over this if you need a staging spot for the canal.
Needs a little cap-ex to justify the transient price but its a good safe harbour. Everything is a cab ride or tender ride away. The staff are VERY HELPFUL. Nice people and a nice boating community. Fun to visit. Port Dalhousie has lost the old “bar and restaurant vibe” as the land has been developed for condos. That’s a shame as it was a fun place to visit. It’s a bit sleepy now. They would be four to five star if they dealt with the severe weeding. Docking here is hard because your strainers and thrusters get fouled with weeds. Time to put some effort into culling the weeds. It’s a hazard and an inconvenience.
