The Marina's transient dock offers slips convenient to all amenities. We dispense ethanol-free gasoline and marine diesel, both of which are treated with Valvtect Marine additives.

We really enjoyed our time here. We spent a week. Great docks and facilities and enjoyable time spent in the town of Grand Rivers. Spa on site but book in advance. Staff a bit streched and service suffers sometimes but overall a really great stop.

The marina is well run and well maintained. We had a great experience there. Particularly grateful for the help of Ms Pascal in the main office. Thank you!

This is an awesome marina! The facilities are clean and very accommodating. The staff is excellent and very friendly. There are two courtesy cars, a spa and golf carts for rent. We walked to town a couple of times, which is only about a mile away. Everything you need is right here. It’s a great place for a relaxing stay.

The good: Only stayed one night. Seems to have everything. Used the courtesy van for reprovisioning. Decent small grocery store nearby but liquor store next door doesn't open until 11. ATM inside marina. The bad: Poorly lit entrance to marina, easily missed. Shallower than indicated on navionics so must carefully monitor depth. Do not come in after dark without good spotlight to follow unlit markers. Did not find website to have slip number and marina layout online.

Great marina but they completely left us in the lurch when it came to the repairs we wanted done. We were initially told they were short-staffed. No problem. On the Wednesday we got there we were told they'd have a look at it by Friday, and then if parts were necessary they'd have to order them and that could take a week, so we would need to stay for at least that long. The first Friday came and went, no visit from them. So we waited on the boat for the entire following week. Having gotten to the next Friday and having given up on ever seeing them we booked a trip out of town without the boat. They came by at 4pm on that Friday afternoon and then phoned us asking where the keys to the boat were. Seriously? We sat on the boat for over a WEEK, were told they would call us when they were on their way over, and then an hour after we leave the boat they finally come by and want to know why we didn't leave the keys on our unattended boat? So they apologized and said they'd be there first thing Monday morning. Monday, no show. I called them, they said Tuesday. Tuesday, no show. By now it was pointless. So we spent 15 days there at the height of their busy season when they were trying to keep boats moving through and got nothing at all. And the poor harbormaster had to make an exception and let us stay longer than she was supposed to because we were promised service. She really could have used the space and we didn't want to be there. So, great marina, nice restaurant, very nice staff on the docks and in the ship store, and a service department that never does what they say they will do sums it up. Why make promises over and over again and not deliver? Who benefits from that?

Marina is nice. But don’t expect and mechanic services. They promised to have a diver to remove prop, repair prop onsite, put prop back on ,done. They would come to boat when we arrived at 4pm. We called them at 5:50 but they would come next morning b/w 8:15-8:30. We cld them at 9am. They would have to haul boat, send prop to Bradenton Fl and once back replace it. Would take 4wks!!!!😳😳😳this is an unreliable exceptional poor business Go elsewhere. We went to aqua harbor in Iuka, MI. Took a few days at a slow speed to get there but much better and honest business. Elizabeth

Shane, John, Robin, and the entire crew are the epitome of hospitality and flexibility. Very responsive to requests and needs. The marina itself has everything a boater might want: courtesy car, restaurants, ship store, service department at Boat Works, sparkling clean individual restroom/shower, fuel, pump out, ice… We liked it so much we are doing a u-turn at Grand Harbor and going back. Thank you Green Turtle Bay! Scott and Teresa, GREEN EYES

Our stay here was exactly what we were told to expect - excellent! Robin was very accommodating even when we had to change the date of reservation and then add another night. The courtesy vehicle was a lifesaver! Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Green Turtle Bay is always a great place to stay. They did go above and beyond to satisfy any of my concerns. Their repair facility seems to have problems with mechanics coming to work or getting qualified mechanics. I do not think this issue is unique to GTB, but I have seen it at many, many marinas. They do the best they can.

I have never visited a place where everyone actively encouraged me to join in a conversation, have a meal, or become a towny and watch the parade. Other than the parade, there is no real reason to leave the camous. This marina is a perfect home away from home for children to adults. We can’t wait to visit again in the future.

Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. Dock staffers were knowledgeable, courteous and efficient. Facilities were clean and well cared for. Our 4 bedroom condo was perfect for our group. Great layout and very well supplied. We cooked most all meals and had all we needed in dishes, pans, etc. We’ve all agreed we will return.

We loved Green Turtle Bay! First I must compliment the service department. We needed to have a prop straightened due to a log hit on the Mississippi. We called ahead and they put us on the schedule. When we arrived, we were pulled quickly, they put us back in the water so that we could stay on our boat, loaned us a van to take the props to the prop shop, and when we got them back next day, put them back on. The price was very reasonable. Great communication from Gayla and David. The facility, even in the off season was great. We enjoyed the two restaurants and took advantage of the Spa facilities for haircuts. The shower rooms were clean and convenient to the docks. We will definately be back!

Friendly staff, great facilities (pools, bar, restaurant, golf carts, and more). Only reason for not a 5 star is the restroom facilities are a long walk. Would definitely stay here again.

The marina was fine, but the boat works employees could not have been more rude. I had set up an appointment to have my mast stepped on Friday. When I got there they told me it wouldn't happen till Tuesday. After explaining that I was a looper the man I was talking to told me how much he hated loopers, explained that we are all broke and he let me know that we are all terrible at boat maintenance. I would not come back here.
