We stayed here a few years ago before the marina was remodeled. Great location. Easy walk to downtown and restaurants. New marina has nice floating docks. Facilities are the same as before, pool and bathrooms. Bathrooms maybe upgraded a bit. WiFi has been replaced with wired Ethernet at each power pedestal. Great if you have Ethernet cable and router or other to plug it into. (We didn’t).
Marina Response:
Uklelegirl, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Thank you for your complements regarding our floating docks. Yes, our pool was remodeled with new marcite, tile, pavers and pool furniture. We completely remodeled our restrooms and showers with new tile & fixtures & added a boater's lounge upstairs which has a computer with internet access. In addition, we added a new awning, lighting, & landscaping. Since your vessel is a catamaran and a wide beam, the only location we had for you for the holiday weekend was on the T-head of B dock. This time of year, we usually have very limited availability. B Dock is setup more for our long-term customers, and is hard wired for internet, which provides greater speeds and less lagging. The ethernet connection is located on the power pedestal at each slip. We have ethernet cables available for loan if needed. We apologize that we didn't meet your expectations regarding the wi-fi services.

Staff was helpful at the dock upon arrival and with a pumpout later. Access to the Riverwalk and downtown restaurants and pubs was great. The marina and city are quite dog-friendly.

Nice Marina, well-managed and very close to good restaurants, bars and coffee shops. New, state of the art floating docks.

Docking was easy with help from Andrew. Staff very friendly. Corwins ice cream shop in the marina. Stayed in the pool all weekend due to windy conditions. Love the floating docks.

Awesome floating docks. Restrooms and showers very clean. Nice ice cream parlor right in premises. Pool very nice. We were on dock A and WiFi did not reach our boat. When I mentioned this to the receptionist she seemed indifferent. She said SHE had WiFi at the office. (Because she is sitting right where the WiFi emanates from!). So the lack of WiFi is the reason for the rating of 3.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Thank you for your complements regarding our floating docks, restrooms, pool & ice cream. I sincerely apologize if our front desk attendant didn't thoroughly explain our internet services. Yes, there is Wi-Fi available on the pool deck. A Dock however is hard wired for internet, which provides greater speeds and less lagging. The ethernet connection is located on the power pedestal at each slip. We have ethernet cables available for loan if needed. We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future.

The Twin Dolphin Marina is very nice. The facilities are clean and easily accessible and direct access to downtown Bradenton is a plus. Most of all the staff is very courteous and helpful. They were quick to answer on the radio when calling in and provided excellent assistance catching us on the dock. Highly recommend!

Couldn't say enough above the facilities and especially the staff. We encountered engine issues on the way,and being fifty miles from our home port..I was lost as to who I could get to come to the marina and diagnose and repair the problem. So,up to the marina office I went to see if they could be of assistance..within two seconds after explaining our dilemma, Sean (hope that's the correct spelling) went over to the wall and pulled out a card and said this is the guy you want to call..he can fix you up. I called,and within an hour and a half the technician was there and diagnosed the issue,and proceed with the repair. If Sean had not taken the initiative, it would not of had the happy ending that it did. Now,about the marina facilities. All new floating fingers with shore power and fresh water. Very wide and accomodating,lots of light with great Security. Swimming pool,freshly rehabbed shower rooms, tv,computer,reading room.All very well done. Conveniently located right next to the River Walk,which is a great stroll along the river. Lots of places to see and eat. So..after reading this would you think I would HIGHLY recommend this place..FIVE STARS doesn't do it justice!!

Thank you for accommodating our Regal Group. We all had a great time! Your marina is top notch!

by stephaniesabbott on Jul 26, 2020
Trans slips were right by the highway so it was Loud. WiFi only worked at pool. No ice bin for boaters. Instead Ice was $2 A bag when the office was open. Pump out service not offered on Sunday. Kind of expensive for the opportunities listed above.

Great place, clean. People very nice

by marilynmonroe71 on Jun 21, 2020
Marina was nice although the slip numbers could be posted on the waterside for new patrons that aren't told where their slip is located. The annuals made this trip the best! Great people! Had a blast will be back.

Nice place showers need a bit of work

by o92gdqvua3utp_ve5iz2 on Dec 19, 2019
Marina is under construction. Water was shut off. No mention of either until we were tied up at the slip.

by pgitug on Dec 16, 2019
Really a very nice place to spend a week. Beautiful secure floating docks, friendly knowledgeable dock staff, new pool, spotless independent restroom/showers (6) in a very nice and friendly town. The town has a beautiful 1.5 mile river walk. Two of our favorite restaurants are O’Bricks on Main and Sage Brisket off 14th. Even on a -1’ minus tide we had 10’ of water all the way to the Marina, including the Marina Docks. 5 Star.

Great stay at Twin Dolphins Marina! Pretty much everything is new. Bathrooms are spacious and clean. Great help with lines upon arrival. Donna in the office was friendly and helpful

by cobetz on Dec 03, 2019
With the new floating docks and the upgraded facilities this marina is by far the nicest in the area. The service is great, the amenities are excellent and the location can't be beat. We have lived aboard at Twin Dolphin Marina for 10 years and would highly recommend it to anyone. The River Walk and downtown area are an added bonus!

by bonogirl13 on Jul 21, 2019
Great location and very nice docks. Water, trash and wagons conveniently placed all around. I would definitely recommend keeping your boat here.

by iemaya2003 on Jul 23, 2018
Friendly staff. Very helpful. Facilities are being improved; new floating docks, and new club house in the future.

by aldonza on Jun 28, 2018
Easy check-in. Two gentlemen greeted us at our assigned slip, fastened our dock lines, & connected our power cord. The laundry, showers, pool, and facilities were immaculate and close to our slip. Staff and fellow boaters were friendly. Best Regards from Aldonza.

by mimimillie1 on Jan 16, 2018
Nice marina. Pier22 Restaurant on-site excellent. Old Main Street easy walking distance.

by cyndipic on Sep 04, 2017
Staff was friendly, dockhands greeting us for arrival. Wonerful people on Dock G! rationale for 4 star... When we checked in was told wifi was out, struck by lightening a "few days ago", and only one bike available for guests. Enjoyed hanging at Caddy's- live music, and wonderful dinner at Pier 22. Would stay here again.

by asdfgh on Jul 03, 2012
Wow, one of the best marinas in Florida. I loved the pool and showers. Cool marina bar and lots of things to do downtown. The private bathroom was just like home. Great staff, made my wife, dog, and I feel very welcome. I would definitely stay again. Thanks guys.
