Excellent customer service from friendly, professional staff! Well-sheltered location about half-mile walk from downtown waterfront. Floating piers; heads and showers nothing fancy but clean and spacious. Nice pool. Reasonable rate. Positive experience all around.

Nice facilities and clean bathrooms, but no one was available to receive us at 5pm on a Saturday afternoon. We picked a slip at random and then realized we’d need a key card to get in and out of the marina to go out to eat. Nobody returned out hail on VHF 9, nobody answered the Office number, and nobody answered the emergency number given by the Office outgoing message. Fortunately the marina was busy and friendly regulars let us in and out, but we felt cramped by the lack of spontaneity to wander about without getting locked out of the boatyard.

Marina Response:
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Since you booked online, we didn't realize that you wouldn't contact us before coming in. Hence we couldn't give you the slip assignment, instructions on where to get your info packet and card key, plus our hours of operation. We apologize for your discomfort. We are now implementing a routine of contacting the transients that don't contact us to make sure they know all the things that would have made your stay better. I think you have already been contacted by our customer service department as well. Again, Thank you

My husband and I have been here several times, including their fireworks weekends and had a great time. The place is very clean, professional and helpful. Other then the fireworks weekends, the place is quiet and restful. I love going to the casino and eating downtown. My husband likes to bike around the coast and all the historic places. Also a great place to go in bad weather!
