Wi Fi much improved from our visit a year ago. However pool area not very clean: overflowing trash bins at pool and tables needed wiped down. Ice cream parlor very dirty both inside and out.
Marina Response:
Terry, your visit with us both this year and the year previously was over the busy Memorial Holdiay Weekend. The group at the pool that partied until 1 am will not be allowed to return. Yes, they did make a mess of the tables & left a lot of trash which my staff promptly cleaned when they returned to work next day. It's unfortunate that some can be so disrespectful of others.

The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Karen was especially helpful. There are good restaurants close. The marina is well maintained and well protected. The individual bathroom and shower rooms are recently updated, well maintained, and private. We enjoyed our stay and will return the next time we are in the Bradenton area.

Excellent spot on the Manatee River. We enjoy it for the nice pool, clean and well organized shower/bathroom area, and the proximity to off property amenities. We walked to the Saturday market and a nearby brewery. On the downside, the last two times we've stayed here we've had occasional problems with strong sewage odors coming from the marina office building. Not a deal killer, but a persistent problem.

Great modern private bath/showers in A/C. Perfect location with local park and restaurants nearby.

by Barry C. - Verified user on Nov 05, 2022
Twin Dolphin was easy to get in. Office and dock staff were helpful. Everything worked, water, power, restrooms were clean.\nThanks for an excellent stay on the transient dock. We draw 8’ so one of the few marinas we can enjoy a stay at in the area.

by Bryan F. - Verified user on Oct 25, 2022
Love this marina! Place was immaculate from the main office, bathrooms, pool and dock area. Great location within short walking distance to DT Bradenton and some great restaurants and bars.

Great marina with friendly service. Very convenient location.

by Gerard E. - Verified user on Jun 26, 2022
Great stay. Staff was helpful, facilities nice, good boaters lounge. Only thing stopping me from 5 stars is no Wi-Fi at the docks - only at the dock office. A couple of repeaters on each dock?

by Michael S. - Verified user on Jun 06, 2022
Great marina friendly staff, clean facilities. Walking distance to restaurants.

by Stephen H. - Verified user on May 30, 2022
This marina is in an ideal location in downtown Bradenton and within walking distance to great hotels, restaurants, and shops. The staff members are helpful and courteous, and all the amenities are updated. Well protected with large fuel dockage and easy access in and out. The marina mostly caters to larger vessels, but I truly appreciate them finding room for our boat (Pursuit 235 DC) over the Memorial Day Weekend. This was our third stay and we're looking forward to returning soon.
Marina Response:
Stephen, Thank you for your kind review. We are happy that you chose to stay with us this Memorial Day Weekend. We wish you and yours well. Until next tide, Cynthia

Love Twin Dolphin! Floating docks, clean restroom, pool and it’s close to the downtown area of Bradenton! Great restaurants to pick from.

by Richard F. - Verified user on Apr 01, 2022
New docks very nice, however had slip on ramp connecting floating dock to access gate. Reported incident to marina manager, but was not contacted about my condition or corrective action. WiFi had weak signal at A-39 dock. Could not find recycle containers. Given gate code for dock access, however numbers were worn off entry keypad. Great individual head/showers. Dock staff very friendly and helpful. Good meal at Pier 22 restaurant.

This is an easy access marina. Docks are in great shape and in a secure gated location. I loved the area too. It was clean and lots of restaurants to walk too if you want to get out and explore.
Marina Response:
Thank you for the 5-star review. We look forward to your next visit with us.

by Mike T. - Verified user on Dec 26, 2021
The marina, docks and facilities are top notch. One unusual thing to report is that they closed early on Christmas Eve and didn’t bother to alert us. With the help of friendly boaters we just picked our own slip.
Marina Response:
Thank you for your kind review. Apologies for not alerting you in advance that we would be closing early on Christmas Eve. We are open 7 days a week all year round except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve after 12 noon, Christmas Day & New Year's Day. I'm glad our boaters were able to assist you. We do have a great group of boaters and staff.

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.

by Kathleen Z. - Verified user on Nov 28, 2021
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.

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.

by Todd M. - Verified user on Feb 17, 2021
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!

by Larry S. - Verified user on Nov 02, 2020
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!!

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 Rhonda S. - Verified user 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.

Marina is under construction. Water was shut off. No mention of either until we were tied up at the slip.

by David B. - Verified user 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

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 Erin A. - Verified user on Jul 21, 2019

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.

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.
