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.

The basin is beautiful, protected on FOUR SIDES, and everyone was super friendly! Love this marina, one of the hidden gems off of the ICW.

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.

It was a nice place but there was no gas for the boat. We had to go to a different Marina each day to fill up. They also did not have a convenience store. The service here was very limited. But I work I try to be nice

This is a great casual little spot for those not looking to impress. No help to the dock, but it was easy. Great outdoor seating and grilling area, cosy clubhouse and totally good bathroom and shower facilities. Not fancy, but totally good! Publix a 2 mile bike ride and little downtown within five blocks. Look forward to staying here again.

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.

Charming little marina with lovely grassy area, fire pit, bbq, covered tables, and string lights. Pet friendly. ( feels like Cabot Cove!) One washer/dryer $1.50 load. Restrooms with showers. Nice boaters lounge. All people very nice. Easy walk to restaurants and some shops. Had groceries delivered. Free pump out at slip.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the kind review. We look forward to your visit next time through.

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

I love the charm and friendliness of this marina. There is a nice grassy area and shady pavilion to hang out. Very quiet. Beautiful neighborhood. 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!

Protected dockage was smooth as glass. The ICW was choppy and 17kts of wind made for a long day. Dockhands assisted in getting us tied up and we're very helpful. The restrooms were clean and decorated. Everything was clean and neat. We walked to Frigate Barr and Grill for an awesome dinner. We will visit again .

What a gem of a marina! The owner Mike was hands on with helping us getting in and out and made sure we felt welcomed. We were invited to their Wednesday night pot luck dinner and everyone was so great. Our Golden ... Sadie Belle was so happy for all the hugs and treats she got. We look forward to returning in the Spring.

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”. Which is a covered structure with sink, ice, cooking supplies and grill where people meet daily to visit. Laundry on site, very quiet area. Will go back.

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.
