We enjoyed our stay at this small marina. Very nice people and a laid back atmosphere. The town is within walking distance and the Irish Pub has great food. Many arts and craft shops, and the town history is interesting. We had enough to do for the two days we stayed here, and would go back.

Mike, the owner met us at the dock and helped secure us for the night. He gave directions and recommendations for local restaurants. Marina is small and "tight" but very calm and protected....almost zero tide. Excellent facilities, rest rooms, showers, laundry and a nice lounge. Also has a nice outdoor space with fire pit, chairs and tables. Ended up staying another night due to windy weather. Great place!

This was the first time we’ve stopped in Eau Gallie after multiple trips up and down the ICW. Can’t believe we missed this place before. The little town is really relaxed and eclectic. And the marina is the same. We won’t miss it on our next trip back down.

We always enjoy stopping here on our way down the ICW. Friendly and helpful staff, clean bathrooms and conveniently located to restaurants and interesting shops. However, on our return trip, although notifying them repeatedly of a 40' draft, they scheduled me for a very shallow slip. When approaching my engines started to churn up the bottom. They stated they had no other slip available, so I cancelled. Approximately 45 minutes later I received a call that someone had left and there was a slip available. Too late already confirmed an excellent slip in Titusville city marina instead.

It is a nice marina though somewhat cramped. I have a 55' trawler and we were the second boat in on most of a week stay. Three days had a catamaran at the outside dock severely limiting departure space which the dockmaster to his credit came out and helped. The bathroom are nice, the laundry only OK, power no problems. The town of Eau Gallie is only a short walk away. Overall a good stay.

EGY Marina is one of the oldest marina's in Florida. Due to its central location and that location is a well protected safe harbor for the weary traveler. While fairly small, it has very friendly and social residents. What it lacks in marina services and fuel docks, it rocks in friendliness and culture. Within walking distance of Melbournes best arts and culture district.

Best place to stop over for a night or a month: great shelter in the Eau Gallie River just off the ICW channel. Clear, well marked approach. The marina is next to the Eau Gallie Art District, where you can shop, eat,and walk through the well-lit streets of the neighborhood. Highly recommended to all cruisers.

We're a 53' LOA sailing monohull, and Eau Gallie Yacht Basin was a fantastic spot to hide from big weather and get repairs done in prep for our Bahamas crossing. It's *super* protected from all directions, and the community at the marina is great. Mike, Dave, Karen, and Pedro take great care of the place, and the long-term slip holders are super friendly to transients. Be sure to show up for Wednesday night pot luck!

I thank my lucky stars that when engine problems cropped up, they did so right near EGYB. Mike was kind enough to squeeze us in and then he pointed us to Jon, who did great work for an affordable rate. Great facilities; great location with good food (including a good brewery) and Ace Hardware in walking distance; and more importantly, great people. They don't make 'em like EGYB anymore.

Very courteous! They stayed past their closing time to help us dock our boat. They also let us stay past our check out time, so that we could run to town to pick up boat parts that we had to special order and drop ship to a parts store in town, while we were passing through on the ICW.

This is a great place to stay when transiting through the area. We were heading south from Titusville which made it a good run. We followed Navionics which brought us right into the harbor. Our 46’ H460 had no issues in the channel. The marina is very sheltered from the wind in all directions. The docks are in great condition and the restrooms are clean We found several eating options within a short walk. We will use this marina again in the future.

Eau Gallie Marina provided us with a safe and comfortable place to sit out a big storm. It was easy to access and in close walking distance to several restaurants. Facilities, including restrooms, showers, laundry, and lounge were clean & modern. We were even able to watch the championship football game in their lounge. Owner Mike and his staff were friendly and helpful, but they also left us alone when we didn't need any help. It is a very nice marina. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

From the owner, to the staff, to all the fellow boaters, everyone at the marina was extremely friendly and helpful. We needed a last minute slip due to a nearby boatyard canceling our haul out without any notice. Eau Gallie YB was able to accommodate us(we’re 59’ so that makes it harder for last minute requests). They were also very flexible while we tried to find another yard that could haul us. We will definitely stay here again.

We pulled in around 6pm and was greeted by the Eau Gallie Yacht Basin Community. We had been out to sea for 3 days and were in need of some provisions - Mr. Dennis drove us to the local Publix, where we picked up some provisions and some potato and macaroni salad for the Wednesday potluck. What a great bunch of people and what a great facility. We were fed at the potluck, took a shower, was able to do a load of laundry, as well a pump out (equipment was in great shape). The marina was so clean and kept up, We were very pleased with the boats in the marina as well. It's nice to see that there are marinas out there still interested in sailing/boating and have a sense of pride in their stuff as well as where they live. We had been sailing since May and The Eau Gallie Yacht Basin Marina was, by far, the best marina we stayed at. This is the kind of place that we want to make our homeport. Most excellent!!

The marina staff is excellent, and the sense of community from the boaters that are there all of the time, made it a really fun place to stay.

Beautiful location and nice facility, however, we never saw or heard from a single staff member during our 3 night stay. Initial response was quick and we were assigned a slip number through a Dockwa message. When we arrived, we hailed on the radio, called two phone numbers, but got no response. Our assigned slip was occupied, so we had to take up the only available side tie slips right next to the laundry. Thankfully, there were several patrons (including those who were double booked with us) who all jumped in to help us with the dock lines as it was gusting close to 40 kts when we arrived. All confirmed that they rarely saw any employees on site. We understood it was a Sunday, and some small marinas like this do not always have staff available, but a heads up when we received the slip assignment message would have been appreciated. I sent a message back through Dockwa telling them where we tied up, but never got a response. Since we were getting off the boat for a few days it didn't matter that we didn't get the bathroom or wifi codes. Again, the other patrons were more than willing to help us out, but really....a 3 night stay with absolutely no contact?? I'll give 3 stars because this is a nice, very protected spot, and we are very self sufficient, but can't give more due to lack of any communication with staff or owners.

Very friendly marina. We stopped in for a quick 2 days while Karen from Karen's Canvas worked on getting us a new bimini and hatch cover. We stayed on the perfect nights so we got to join in on the marina potluck. Great little marina close to Melbourne art district & lots of great restaurants/ bars.

The owner, Mike, greeted us with 2 other men to help us tie up. This is a very clean and picturesque Marina with proximity to Publix and restaurant choices. Uber is a quick call to anything you need.(We have folding bikes but used Uber for a large provisioning.) I walked to Planet Fitness one day and ran the causeway bridge sidewalk another day. My husband cycled to Bangs for a great haircut. Laundry, docks, bathrooms and all amenities are well maintained. Especially loved taking the dingy a very calm, short distance to Frigates for a glass of wine and a fantastic dinner watching the sunset. Mike is a text away if you need anything. More personal than large marinas. No fuel, but everything else.

This marina is a hidden gem! If you are looking for a quiet, quaint, friendly old Floridian vibe, this is it. The wifi & electric is good. Baths and laundry are old, but my understanding is they will be renovated in the near future. Docks are older but in good shape, and very convenient in slip pump out. Easy, short walk to a very eclectic downtown with humor in Eau Gallie's history boards throughout town. Great stop to add to the cruiser's destination list!

This may be one of the coolest little marinas I have ever been to. The marina is very well protected from all winds. The pilings were in good condition - no issues tying off. Anything they are lacking in amenities compared to some of the newer marinas is made up for in the great little surrounding area which had great little restaurants and shops. I wish I could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!

This marina is quaint, charming, and most certainly well protected. The boating community there is friendly and always willing to help. Our stay was awesome. We highly recommend keeping your boat here or stopping by to experience the area. It’s also interesting to note this marina originated in 1896 so the history is amazing and releases an old time feel. The owner is “hands on” and goes above and beyond to make you feel at home. The amenities are comfortable and there is a canvas shop on site. We highly recommend this marina to all who plan to visit the Melbourne area. Peter and Stephanie Meilunas

We arrived at Eau Gallie Yacht Basin about 1:30 pm on a Thursday and the office was closed. Called two different phone numbers for the marina and no answers. We left messages, but no one returned our phone call. Did not have a slip assignment or restroom codes. Finally tied up on the face of a dock behind a larger cruiser. We needed ice for our cooler, so were told by another transient boater that we might find some in town. Walked downtown but had no luck finding ice. When we got back to the marina, the office attendant said her husband was out in the marina looking for us, but we never received a phone response to the messages we left. The marina does not sell snacks or ice like the Waterway Guide implies. We finally connected with a local resident boater, who ubered my husband to find ice. If you are looking for a marina with simple amenities like ice or snacks and an office attendant, go somewhere else. The only good thing I can say about Eau Gallie Yacht Basin is that some of the resident boaters are very friendly and helpful.

We are very happy,this is a great community of sailors. We have been here for a few weeks we had to leave the boat for some travel. I never worried once about our boat "Anyroad", I knew she would be taken care of. The small Artist community of Eau Gallie is very walkable, lots of restaurants and cut boutiques. There is a Publixs about 2 miles away for provisions.

Staff and owner went above and beyond to get three slips for a windy weekend. The marina sits just off the ICW and up a small river to a quiet harbor. It is set close to many beautiful oak tree lined streets and it’s an easy walk to many restaurants and stores. The local harbor host, John, was very helpful as well as the other local slip holders.

Nice place and have stayed before but adamantly opposed to dockwa cancelation policy, no one at the marina returned phone calls all afternoon about arrival and no one at the marina to assist slip. Neither marina or dockwa gave information saying this might be the case and provided further information. TOTALLY unacceptable. And I worked in the marine industry or related for over 35 years.

Marina Response:
I am unclear of the Dockwa cancelation policy you are referring to. We never charge for cancelations at Eau Gallie Yacht Basin because we realize boating to a destination is rarely an exact science. I am sorry that you did not have a great check in experience. The marina has been here for over 125 years so I hope that most of the time we get it right. Feel free to call my cell and we will try and make sure your next visit is awesome. Mike 714-306-7233

There aren’t many transient slips and I’m happy they could accommodate us. Next time, we will ask to be on the face dock as the slip we are in is quite narrow. Still, a great stop!

This rating is based on the friendliness of the people there. Everyone was very nice. They have a live aboard community that are very welcoming. There is a “Temple”.

Very clean and comfortable marina. This is the second time we stopped there. Definitely nothing fancy but a very friendly live-aboard community. We stayed 3 days because we had family in town for a wedding. The view is great from the last slip on the face dock. My only complaint is that the wifi is basically non-existant. But they still get a 5. We will be back.

Dave was not friendly. Locals have seem to taken over. Can't correct mistakes on dockwa or with Dave on reservation. A date error made on Dockwa could not be corrected. I got charged for 3 days but only allowed to stay for 2. Emails and phone calls were not answered promptly to try to remedy error.

Marina Response:
Sorry that an error was made in your booking. Unfortunately the Dockwa software is not as user friendly as I would like either. We can only accommodate a limited amount of transient boats so if the dates are wrong most likely we will be booked. The good news is I never charge someone for a service that isn’t provided and if you were unable to stay I will refund you. Email or text with your name and reservation date and it will be resolved.
