Dock hand had little knowledge in lines during tide while docking.

Staff was great helping us get in during challenging weather

Easy access off the ICW. Staff was great and very helpful. Not much to do there and a bit challenging to walk dogs. There is not much in the way of green space. The long trailer parking road was littered with trash & dog poop we only needed one night so it worked for us.

Nice Marina, did not use facilities apart fromaundry which was fine and a good price. It was great to have a loaner vehicle to top up supplies. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant on site was good just wish they put prices on menu ( too many marked MKT).

Mary the dock master is the most efficient and friendly person at marinas as we have seen in a long time. She handled 5 boats coming in late afternoon and her instructions for dock assignments were precise and clear. She helped with all lines and got ready to fuel 3 of the boats. Quite remarkable! Great experience and we will return

Great, as with the other 2 morningstar marina previously stayed. Berth master was helpful and friendly. Large liner dock (and fuel dock) that is clean and has good cleats. Easy access and docking, there is some tide but it is not bad. Coastal kitchen and coffee as both great. Would stay again

DockMaster is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Great restaurant on site too!

by Stephen P. - Verified user on Oct 21, 2023
Great marina - floating docks, clean, great deckhands. Good spot to easily jump into to avoid weather overnight. The only reason not 4 star is the bathroom facilities need a major upgrade. We were looking forward to a nice shower on land after 4 days offshore.

The staff responded when we called in on VHF, met us at the dock receiving our line S and tied up Blue. heron quickly and then got our power hooked up. We enjoyed an excellent meal at the on site Coastal Kitchen. Only drawback is the long walk to take our dig for a walk.

Great staff friendly and knowledgeable

by Chris B. - Verified user on Oct 09, 2023
Greeted by a great dockhand that was juggling multiple boats. Nice location and the floating docks were in great condition. We had an issue with our off shore power (that started at the previous stop) and the marina recommended a local marine service (Navcom) that fixed the issue in two hours (and he had to get a part). About a $10 Uber to the pier area where there are many shops and restaurants (recommend Half Shell). Coastal Coffee at the marina is a hidden gem. Excellent coffee/latte and the pastries looked amazing. We ordered their chicken salad to go for lunch. Great stop.

Great clear and concise directions from the dock master. Fueled up and pumped out and out in a slip for the evening. All great. Thank you. SV Fin.

I’m not one to leave reviews, but we had a great stay here! It started with Mary going above and beyond to help get us tied up on the dock in some challenging conditions. Thanks Mary! Facilities were nice, clean, and full of friendly folks. We look forward to visiting again!

Marina is nicely located off the ICW near 247 and 249. Provides free fast WIFI, dockside pumpout and has an onsite restaurant. Grocery stores are located with a couple of miles via the courtesy car. West Marine is about 5 miles onto the mainland in Brunswick. Marina staff is friendly and always looking to help including helping with boat lines for docking/undocking. I highly recommend the marina in your north/south trip.

No answer on phone. Left messages(2) return calls. I guess business is good. They don't get mine.
