About


Thunderbolt Marina is conveniently located just outside Savannah on the Wilmington River in Thunderbolt, Georgia, at Intracoastal Waterway Marker #35 (ICW Mile #583) N 32° 01.467' W 081° 02.783'. There are no height restrictions when approaching from Wassaw Sound.

We monitor VHF Ch. 16, and Ch. 11 is our working channel. If you need docking assistance, please call us at 912-210-0363 before you arrive. All bookings or reservation inquiries must be made through one of our booking app partners, Dockwa or Snag-a-Slip. You will receive the fastest response from our Dockmaster using one of these reservation apps. Please contact us directly to discuss reservation requests exceeding 5 days. There is a 30-foot-per-day minimum charge for transient dockage. Optional shore power hook-up is not included in the advertised daily rate.

Note that the current in the Wilmington River can be very swift at times. You are advised to make approaches with your bow into the current with fendering and all dock lines, inclusive of aft and fwd running spring lines, ready for the dock attendant on duty. Please comply with all marina staff docking instructions while approaching our facility, as we are very interested in you having an uneventful and stress-free docking experience.

Thunderbolt Marina is just a short distance from Historic Downtown Savannah and provides a tranquil setting with easy access to our repair facilities with haul-out capabilities via Travelift and Syncrolift.

Clean and comfortable with easy access.

Marina Response:
So glad our facility met with your standards and please know, we are grateful for the 5 stars. It is an easy access, which is a massive bonus and one that is worth considering when planning an itinerary. Nice too, that it's a relatively quiet river with stunning sunrise views! Come back again!

Excellent marina. Everyone is very nice and the facilities are clean. We love both seating areas.

Marina Response:
Hello Melinda and thank you for your rating. We enclosed part of our patio some years ago because we know that bugs can be an issue in certain temps and at certain times of the year. However, the view and the breezes afforded our visiting customers from the gazebo over the river, make for a really enjoyable morning coffee moment, or perhaps even a sunset cocktail!! So happy your enjoyed your visit.

Excellent! Facilities are clean and the docks are in great shape. The marina staff was exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. Loved having access to the courtesy car to do provisioning. We will be back!

Marina Response:
Delighted that your stay was so enjoyable and thank you for the high rating. We are very grateful. We take great effort to ensure the facility is well kept and attended to, and always value feedback - so that we can make improvements where necessary. Our marina staff ARE truly a friendly bunch and enjoy their work amongst the boating community. It makes a big difference, we think. The courtesy car is definitely a huge bonus for people in need of a quick trip the grocery or pharmacy...and so much more convenient than Uber or taxis. Happy you enjoyed it all.

Marina Response:
What a lovely compliment! Many thanks for the 5 stars and the high praise of the facility with its amenities. All of us who have been or are currently boaters, understand the need for a good working laundry and a nice hot shower. The extras provided are all bonuses - apart from good service from dockhands, which should be standard anywhere. Glad you enjoyed your stay and plan to come back!

This is a very well kept marina, and most importantly its dockhand is knowledgeable, experienced, and capable of assisting in adverse conditions.

Marina Response:
A high accolade indeed Linda - thank you! You are right, the MOST important asset at any marina, is staff who know what they are doing, can tie off lines, make knots, adjust fenders, understand the current and the issues that are often posed by an incapacitated vessel. We are happy that you kindly pointed that out to any other potential customers, and equally happy of course, that you found the marina to be in good shape.

I believe this was not your first visit! Happy to have you back. Do so very much appreciate that you find our staff to be friendly. We get great feedback about them all...and the marina too! I know on your stop here, donuts were a promise but Krispy Kreme closed down locally and we therefore no longer have the service available to us. Please don't let that put you off coming back again and again!!

Helpful dockhands; clean facility, wonderful big boats to gawk and admire; easy Uber to riverfront Savannah

Marina Response:
Yes Tim, we have an enviable view! The boats on one side and the verdant marshes on the other with an ever changing play of light. The added bonus is we are just far enough away from Savannah to still be nestled in a quiet area, but close enough to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city. Thank you for the 5 stars.

Great marina with floating docks. Friendly & knowledgeable yard team and clean bathrooms

Marina Response:
Clean bathrooms! Such an accolade - thank you! And sadly, such a rarity. Very happy to learn you enjoyed your experience here and that you found our team both friendly and knowledgeable. Floating docks are an enormous asset and not necessarily a given up/down the coastline. They make life on the water much easier for all.

It was a great marine. We needed work completed on our 50 STEELAWAY boat. Would use them again.

Marina Response:
So many people assume we are simply a "big boat" yard, but we make every effort to accommodate all requests for all service work, providing schedules are mutually agreeable and resources available! It's good to know that we were able to help you with your needs and get you safely on your way! Enjoy the summer season and remember, we're here to help, if we can but hopefully next time, you'll only require a dock space! Best to you.

Great marina! Great staff! Short Uber drive to Savannah.

Marina Response:
It's nice that we are not so far from Savannah, that you can't easily enjoy a day downtown - but still far enough away to enjoy the tranquility of our little Thunderbolt village on the ICW! Best of both worlds. It delights us to know that you enjoyed our facility enough to give us 5 stars. Our marina crew are a credit to us and will no doubt be grateful for your compliment! Thank you!

Inflation has eliminated complimentary donuts but T-bolt continues to be a great Marina. The expertise and dedication of the staff, yard workers and everyone else is unmatched.

Marina Response:
We are so very grateful for your generous compliments. We're happy that your recent return visit did not disappoint professionally, but the complimentary donuts previously delivered to each vessel at the marina, are unfortunately no longer an option available to our customers because the local store closed. As a result, we are no longer able to get them hot out of the fryer. We all miss them!

Hospitality and professional service are the best words to describe this marina. Communication during booking and arrival was prompt and courteous. Dockmaster Greg gave clear instructions on approach and tied our lines according to the current. The facility has nice landscaping, and a parkette along the dock to walk the dog or is it to enjoy the view. The marina has a small shop, laundry, and private showers. There are a couple of restaurants nearby with good food at reasonable prices (Tubbys). If you need something else, there is a loaner car available. The morning after our arrival, the dockmaster checked in to see if everything was OK and if we were in need of anything. When we were casting off, he was there again help with the lines. Truly five-star service. Overall, we found Thunderbolt Marina to have a particularly friendly vibe and wouldn’t hesitate to go back again.

This marina is top notch. Greg & Jeremy, amongst others, are all over the place to create a wonderful atmosphere from the docking to the departure. We felt at home during the weeks we spent there. Marina facilities are super clean, including laundry room and showers, courtesy car is just the cherry on the cake. If you’re on ICW it’s a no brainer to stop here, if you’re sailing on open ocean, the time to reach the marina from the inlet is a very small price to pay to enjoy the Thunderbolt atmosphere, the wonderful facility and its amazing staff. Draft never an issue even at low tide.

Harbor master was a great help. Clean showers and secure property. Highly recommend it.

Marina Response:
David H - We appreciate the excellent comments on the dockside service. Showers are an area where we hope to spend some cap-ex dollars to make them the best on the ICW. We pride ourselves on security, so thanks for calling out that benefit. We are looking forward to your return visit Sir!

Thunderbolt is an awesome Marina and yard. We arrived and Greg R. The Dockmaster assisted us with our slip and lines. Also, their showers and laundry facility is very clean, nicely laid out with A/C. There is also a lounge by the laundry for all boaters. We also had some fiberglass repaired and Ken the General Manager was excellent. If anyone need repairs or any kind of work done, this is the place. Upon leaving Greg was right there to assist with fueling us and the pump out. Another exceptional benefit is the loaner car. We will definitely be back!!

Marina Response:
William S - Wow! We really enjoyed your review and appreciate all the accolades. Anytime you're in need, please give us a phone. The loaner car is a draw, so we are glad you appreciate having it available for running local errands. We are always here and open for business, so drop by again soon!

Dec 2021: Thunderbolt is pretty consistent. Fortunately, had Hal as dockmaster to help with the lines and check-in. Marina is clean and neat. Easy walk to a local restaurant. Dec 2020: No change at the marina. Except the dock person was incredibly rude and obnoxious. Did not answer the radio when we called several times. Had to call by phone. Appeared ‘put out’ on helping us dock. Will consider a different marina next time. Jan 2019: same holds true on marina and staff. But, amenities need work. WiFi was awful. One dryer malfunctioning and no sign indicating. The marina office was 95% empty of drink/food items/supplies. If this is to be a full service marina, need to step up your game. We stayed at Thunderbolt for couple of days. The Marina was clean, bathrooms were clean, laundry room was clean but only one washing machine was available (other 2 were out of service). Staff very helpful. We also needed parts and service from Thunderbolt - all the personnel were wonderful. Had our parts within two days.

Dear johnsons3, We are delighted to read your very favorable comment of our marina on this website, for which we are grateful particularly as we do our best to ensure that the overall appearance of TMI reflects the care we take with our entire facility. We are equally happy to learn that you found our staff to be helpful, since they take pride in their work and are as a result, an asset to us! We regret that only one machine was working in the laundry. This is not usually the case but highlights the necessity to check that all of our amenities are available to our customers at all times. Had we known, we might have been able to offer you an alternative but nevertheless, we hope it did not compromise your stay - nor we hope, will it prohibit you from stopping by again. We appreciate you taking the time to comment. With all good wishes. Thunderbolt Marine, Inc.

Facilities were good. Bathrooms were clean and spacious. How can you complain when you get Krispy Kreme donuts delivered to your boat every day? Courtesy car was nice amenity. Only issue is wifi only works consistently up near office. Easy Uber to downtown Savanna.

We have been visiting Thunderbolt Marine, in Thunderbolt Georgia, for many years and it has never been less than excellent. Easy on and off fuel dock, clean heads and laundry and a short ride from downtown Savannah. Also, the current in the Wilmington River is very strong and the dockmaster (s) are excellent at making sure you get on and off the dock without problems.

Rob was fantastic. Easy in and out, we stayed overnight on the T-head full dock. Krispy Kreme delivered right to your boat at 7am. My only issues was the wifi was very weak, even when I sat across from the marina office. I had a Zoom board meeting to attend and the latency was so bad I had to quit and call in on the phone.

What a nice stay! Rob is terrific and took great care of us. We stayed on the inside of the fuel dock since we're a power catamaran and we barely felt any rocking! So nice to not be waked!! Having a courtesy car is such a pleasure. We really appreciate every marina that's kind enough to offer one. Of course, the daily Krispy Kremes are something our hips wished we didn't partake of, but we still loved every bite!! LOL

NEVER AGAIN!! Stayed May 16, 2021. Called marina on ch 16. No response! Waited a few, called again. No response! Called on ch 11 (working channel), no answer. Called on phone, rolled to voicemail. Called again, voicemail. Called on 16 again, got an answer. Went to ch 11 and was told to come down and turn and dock at end of face dock. Wasn’t sure I was at the right marina so call on 11 again, no response. Found marina and turned but still no dockhand. Called again, and asked for docking help. Was told: I’m in the office. Your going into the current so you shouldn’t need help. I can’t come down for a few minutes. My wife has hand issues so docking into current can be a problem! Another boater help us dock. Checked in. Was given no info had at all. Had to ask about everything, WiFi, restaurants, password, showers. Was told the men’s room was “torn up, just use the lady’s room. No men’s room and lady’s room had only one working toilet. The second was was stopped up the whole time we were there. I helped three boats tie up. No help from marina! Krispy Kreme donuts? Never saw any. We left around 7:30am. Marina opens at 6:30 so thought donuts would have been early. They do have nice docks.

Wow was pleasantly surprised great docks and dock master. Restrooms were very clean

Marina Response:
Dear dspatio – Your comment both intrigues and flatters us! I am hoping that you were pleasantly surprised by the tranquility of the marina despite being annexed to a major shipyard. We have made every effort to ensure the comfort and safety of all our visitors regardless of their dock assignment and/or their reason for being here. Sitting on the ICW with panoramic views over verdant marshlands, enjoying both sunsets and sunrises, is a luxury not afforded to many. We do hope you come back again – and find us to be as good or better next time, than this time! We very much appreciate your comments about the facility, and our wonderful Dockmaster. With all good wishes. - Thunderbolt Marine, Inc.

Over all our stay way great. The staff was very supportive and easy to work with, bathhouse and laundry was spotless but my only serious complaint was the internet was spotty at best. It kept going in and out so if your work was not saved, it was lost. Watching movies or videos was painful as they stopped continuously to buffer and catch up. It is rough when you rely on quality internet and it is not there.

Rob, the dockmaster helped me tie up, get my electricity hooked up, pointed out a couple local restaurants within walking distance and pointed out the laundry and showers/restrooms. I have never in my life seen a shower stall that was so big. So big, you could throw a party in it. Plenty of piping hot water and clean. Half a dozen glazed Krispy Kreme donuts were waiting on the deck of my boat for me in the morning. I don't normally eat donuts, but they were delicious and a nice change from my usual breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

Even though I didn't actually use Thunderbolt's services I felt like I had to leave a positive review for all of the help I did receive. I spoke to Karen a couple of times and she was very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, due to the current situation they are obviously running on limited staff and have an awful lot of work to get to. She was able to offer me good suggestions and was very responsive in her communications. A great experience and I'm sure you'd be equally well served.

Dear chriskraska, We’re very happy to learn that Karen was able to help you make an informed decision given your itinerary and timeline and our own schedule. Like so many other businesses, we have faced difficulties during the pandemic restrictions but are working towards a return to normal – and we continue to make every effort to assist our customers as best we can under any circumstances.

Nice people. Beautiful sunrise with Kristy Irene doughnuts delivered to your boat. Short walk to Tubbys Tankhouse for a nice dinner. Definitely would stay again. Clean, small, a little more in the store would be my only suggestion. We walked a mile to a convenience store for eggs and milk.

Marina Response:
Dear kfsih, Thank you so very much! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in our Marina, where customers can enjoy not only the wonderful Krispy Kreme donuts but the wonderful vista our location affords our visitors here on the ICW. We are surrounded by verdant marshland, natural beauty and with relatively quiet river traffic. In fact, it’s so quiet, that it’s hard to believe you are sitting within a stone’s throw of our megayacht refit facility! We admit to having very limited supplies in our marina store, but we do offer a courtesy vehicle during business hours for all our customers to run quick errands – like grocery shopping, if needed. Please do visit us again! - Thunderbolt Marine, Inc.

Great spot. You would need a ride to downtown but it's worth it. No ships store but there is one 1/2 mile down the road that has everything. That was amazing.

Marina Response:
Dear Dudkas, We are so glad you enjoyed our location. It’s true, we are not in walking distance to downtown Historic Savannah, but we are comfortably removed from the heavy river traffic, the noise, the crowds and the rushing current! We are very conveniently located close to two restaurant/bars, and a fully stocked marine store that serves not only locals and transients, but the superyacht industry too – so their inventory far outweighs anything we can offer.

Marina Response:
Dear asline54, We truly appreciate you taking the time to send a recommendation to Marinas.com about our facility. Our customer reviews on this site, are so often our best advert and can persuade a fellow sailor to stop in or to pass us by. We boast the beauty and serenity of our surroundings which is always a surprise to anyone who has not been here before. We are surrounded by verdant marshlands filled with wildlife like dolphins, manatees, otters and birds. Though situated on the ICW., it is surprisingly quiet and we are not affected by much boat traffic. Tubby’s Tankhouse is everyone’s go-to, and for good reason. It’s open daily for lunch and supper with brunch on the weekends and it often has live music. Please come back and see us again! Best wishes. Thunderbolt Marine, Inc.

Nice docks on Wilmington river. There is a fair bit of current but the docks are all parallel to it. The showers and laundry are both quite good. The WiFi on the docks was not working for the first few days and was slow even close to the dollhouse. The signal strength was good but both Android and Mac devices wouldn't connect. The courtesy car was available both times we wanted to use it and it was great to have.

Dear hmscarth, Thank you for your positive comments. We always welcome feedback from our customers as we believe that your own experiences are the most valuable tool we have for assessing our shortcomings. We very much appreciate your input.

Good marina, easy access right on the ICW, can walk to a restaurant but quite a distance from Savannah (we had a friend with a car, but you could also get a rental car here if necessary). Laundry and showers were well kept. Free wifi available near the office. Nice bonus:Krispy Creme doughnuts delivered to your boat each AM (unless you decline them!).
