Looking for Seasonal or Annual Dockage?

Bull River Marina sits on the Bull River on the eastern side of Wilmington Island, GA. (N 32′ 02.086″ by W 080′ 57.557″). We are a deep water marina that’s able to provide short-term as well as long-term dockage for your vessel. With a complete remodel and expansion in 2013, we can handle almost any boaters’ needs.

Bull River Marina is in the middle of boating & fishing paradise and we offer a wide range of services to accommodate your needs. We have rental boats that can be used to strike out on your own and explore the fishing and natural beauty of the area. We offer excursions to Shark Tooth Island to find fossil shark teeth, including the mighty Megalodon! Take our Water taxi to Daufuskie for a tour of the island and great food. We also offer sunset cruises, beach drops, and downtown Savannah tours by water. Our boater's lounge is an excellent place to hang out.

Locally owned and operated, Bull River Marina is ideally nestled on the eastern side of Wilmington Island on US-80 East (before the Bull River Marina, look for the 8-story condo Bull River Yacht Club with the red roof ). We are located just minutes from the Historic District and Tybee Island. Our mission is to offer the best boating experiences to our local boaters as well as visitors to the Low Country.

Unfortunately we were unable to stay at Bull River Marina due to the fact that the vertical clearance on the islands expressway bridge was too low for our sailboat and was not mentioned in Dockwa. We contacted and explained to Brandon the dock master. He refunded our payment. Wished we could have been able to make it to experience historic Savannah.

Super staff - very helpful and flexible. Gina is the best. Electric reliable. Only reason for a 4 is the water pressure is a little light. They can help arrange boat services. Location is quiet, yet restaurants and beaches are just an uber or bike ride away. Many waterways to explore. Many sea islands nearby that are protected national wildlife refuges - Wassaw, Ossabaw. Marina also offers tours of historic Dafuskie Island - only accessible by boat. Ocean accessible with no bridges in the way. You can even anchor in the Bull River with no one else around. City of Savannah is an uber ride away - a must see if you have not been. For more info, you can watch our recent video or message us at

Very friendly and helpful staff. Courtesy bikes and a laundry would make a big difference.

The staff was very , very helpful. The marina facility was also nice. My only issue was that there is no way to launch a boat at the Marina. I didn’t ask when I made the reservation and just assumed that I would be able to launch on the property. They directed me to a public ramp 3-3 mile drive away then it is a 15 minute boat ride back. All in all nice trip. Be advised to ask if they actually have bait as they didn’t.. contrary to ad, website and road sign
