Great marina right in downtown Chattanooga. Easy city to get around. Only drawback is lack of facilities at dock (showers, bathrooms, laundry).

Staff was very helpful, and location is great.

Hard to rate this marina. It would’ve been 5 star, primarily for location, if they provided adequate amenities. One can walk EVERYWHERE from this marina—to enterprise, Whole Foods, excellent restaurants, museums, awesome aquariums, river walk, imax theatre—list goes on and on. BUT the marina itself was marginal— one bathroom next to marina office with two stalls only for entire marina, a LONG (1/3 mile?) walk away for most boaters, no showers available, and it smelled dirty. The first few nights we were docked at their “aquarium dock”—fixed docks, cement piers every 45 feet or so, sandwiching each space to tie-up, exposed to public walkway, no security. We would’ve loved to stay longer had there been better facilities. Staff were friendly and helpful—not their fault.

Long very low floating docks under noisy hyway bridge. Great location right downtown riverfront area. Ask for the Bluff dock and it has a security gate. Power, water and trash cans is all you get . Great town with free shuttle bus to Publix or Walmart .

The Bluff Dock is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy Downtown Chattanooga. An easy walk to the Hunter Art Museum, the Aquarium, and many wonderful restaurants. Across the river there is even more! Grocery shopping is nearby at Publix and Whole Foods. Staff at the Erwin Marine is super friendly and helpful.
Thank you for staying with us!

Bluff dock was very peaceful this past weekend. Great views of the downtown bridges and convenient location to explore downtown Chattanooga!
:-) Thank you!!

On a sea wall on the main channel with out a posted no wake zone. Very rough 2 days at slip. Very convenient location to downtown. No security with easy public access.

The location trumps everything so any negatives would be offset by that. However there are some negatives. First I agree that TWRA should make a NO WAKE zone between the bridges, you can get hit so hard broadside that it dislodges the fender between the boat and dock. Also the far gate was wide open and there were people on the docks that should not be there. The gate at the far end does not have an automatic return so if you leave it open it stays open.
And for a suggestion, the docks are often empty. Offer weekly and monthly rates at progressively deeper discounts as the boating season dwindles. I stayed for a month for 400.00 a few years ago in November. Great deal for me and at least some revenue as the dock was mostly empty all month.

Great location to down town

Every was great with facilities but something has to be done about those wake board boats that curl up 3 foot waves and ruin the peaceful environment.
by wwcraven on Aug 04, 2019
We like the Bluff dock. It is the most convenient to downtown, has the most pedestals and a security gate. Like all Chattanooga docks and marinas downtown, you are completely exposed to river traffic and wakes. But it is very worth it for a night or two. Jill does a great job.
Thank you for your business, we love our Riverfront and glad you do as well!!

Gate code did not work called and called and called and called ......... could not get in. Just happened a HOMELESS man told me how to get in. you need an emergency #. gate was not working when we left
We are so sorry this happened, unfortunately the office is closed on Sundays. But just for future trips if you leave a message it will come to our email and let us know what's going on. Apparently the battery was going out, the dockmaster took care of that and it is working now. Also, just for future reference there is another gate you can use on the upper end:) Thank you for staying with us, we liked you so much we just wanted to keep ya! PS Give me a call and let me in on how you got in so we can take care of that. See ya on the water!

The river flows very fast here at the dock and there is no one to help with the lines. My only other issue is that there is no internet on the docks. The riverfront has internet but it isn’t strong enough to cover the docking area so you need to go up to the street level to get it.
Jill at the marina office is very helpful and accommodating but can’t do anything about the river or internet.

Coordinating with the Erwin marina thru dockwa app was painless. Transit dock was clean an well maintained. One issue has to do with Erwin’s dockwa listing. It states a 10% discount on fuel for transit users. We went to Erwin’s Chickamauga marina for fuel and was told by dockhand there was no additional discounts at the pump. Might want to confirm or has listing changed.
Glad the booking process was easy and that you were happy with your stay! The discount on fuel listed is for our fuel docks downtown when you stay with us, (each location kinda does it own thing) you just have to fuel during business hours, don't put your cc in, just call the office and let me know it's you and I'll give you the discount:) We'll try it on your next trip, hope to see ya soon! Thank you for your business!

Very clean ! nice place to dock ! Love Chatt
Thank you, come back soon!!

The receptionist at Erwin was great; very courteous and helpful with our first DocWa reservation.
THE BAD NEWS; there was no law enforcement on the water downtown - the small boat traffic is very heavy - numerous very discourteous boaters; we saw paddle boarders thrown off their boards and we nearly had cleats pulled out of our deck from the serious wakes.

Great view of fireworks
Come back soon!!
