Turner responded quickly and provided a slip near the office, showers and west marine. It was reasonable for a quiet restful evening. Also the provide yacht club privileges for the restaurant within a 5 minute walk from the marina. The food was excellent. I would stay there again.

Marina Response:
Thank you for staying with us. Safe travels to you.

Wish it was possible to give negative stars - The ONLY reason we could see going to Turner Marine is if you need a cheap marina to leave your boat for a week or so. The write-up that they have on-line is not correct. As an example – they do not have a courtesy car, the marina facilities are in poor condition (bathrooms, docks, water sources, laundry), their definition of a full service marina is contracting out most of the work (the riggers we worked with were excellent), and the nearest grocery store is over 3 miles down a busy road. They also state there is a locked gate – but just walk a few hundred feet past the lock and you have full access to all docks, all boats, and the yard. All of the reviews that state there are cookouts during the holidays are no longer true - and the grill they do have does not work (at least it was in such bad condition no one dared try it). This is a family run business with the 3rd generation now running it - and the care and respect the 1st generation apparently had - is now GONE. We would NOT recommend having any work done by the marina staff. Our 1st hand experience is that they are not honest. They try to delay any work as long as possible with the goal of forcing boat owners to pay for additional marina fees. We were told multiple times that the parts we needed were ordered but due to "parts shortages and other reasons" they didn't have an estimated time of arrival. For a month they gave us one excuse after another why the order was delayed – and at one point they yelled at us for asking too many questions. After a month we took things into our own hands and found out they had never placed the order. So we had the parts ordered from the same supplier and found out there was no parts shortage and the order was built, shipped and received within 4 days. In addition to delaying work we found out they increased the price of parts and contracted labor – just to line their pockets. If you do have any work done at this marina we would recommend understanding the actual cost of the parts and labor, and verify they bill you correctly. When we confronted them face to face about our bill they said nothing (didn't even look at us) – but later in the day they sent us an updated bill that was almost $2000.00 less. We originally thought we would be at this marina for 2-3 weeks maximum – it ended up being 3 Months and 3 holidays – and the marina staff just smiled at us. There are other marinas in the Dog River area – we would suggest using those instead of Turners. Oh BTW - they have a 2021 Marinas.com award hanging on the office wall - but if you search marinas.com elite or boaters choice you won't find them.....

Turner Marine is a no frills Marina. It is not a resort type place. But it seems to be a safe place to keep the boat, and the staff seems to have a genuine concern for their clients.

Cool cove right off of Mobile Bay. Our slip was pretty well protected when some other boats in other marinas in the area got tossed around in some wind. Can dinghy to some fun restaurants. Be sure to check out Mobile Bay Yacht Club for a drink or dinner and some great bay views.

We had a nice time at Turner. Office staff was friendly but no one can out or offered to help us dock. We here slipped on the out side of the south wall which is on the river. Had a great view for watching traffic. Gave 3 stars because the marina is in need of alot of maintenance. There are 3 restaurants close by which were very good!

We stayed on the river dock and it was perfectly enjoyable. Dock is older. No frills. Nice bathrooms and laundry. West Marine across the street. Yacht club has sailing on Thursday nights and accepts Turner Marine transients as guests to their restraint. Also a a river restraint across from the river dock. Great sailing community. Very good price. $1 per foot and a boat us discount. 👍

Old dock, not lavish, but the management couldn’t do more to accommodate and assist. Much kindness.

Our 39' Cutter Nereus has been moored at Turner Marine for almost two years. During that time, the Turners and their crew of professionals and staff had done everything to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction. Their work is done within budget estimates and they stand by their warranty work. I recommend this Marina to any serious cruiser looking for a short or long-term stay in a secure, safe marina.
