The staff handling my calls were very responsive. We were surprised, and disappointed, that our assigned slip did not have any finger piers. We had to back in, and remove our dinghy and davits before we could get off our boat. On a previous stay we were assigned a side tie to the pier, which was fine.
Marina Response:
Larry, thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback. We're thrilled that our crew was able to exceed expectations in the area of communication. We, unfortunately, have quite a few slips that don't have finger piers. Next time just ask and we'll make sure we get you to a slip that better accommodates your vessel! We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Easy in and out, convenient to lots of Restaurent’s.
Marina Response:
Thank you, Richard, for taking time to leave us a review. We look forward to having you dock with us again soon!

Had trouble finding CSS Yacht Basin with no signs or banners indicating where it was. It was very difficult for me to get on and off the boat because we had to park bow first. There was no side dock. I liked the easy access.
Marina Response:
Candace, we're glad that you found the access to our little basin to be convenient! Also, we apologize that you weren't easily able to locate the marina despite our best efforts at providing instructions. Unfortunately, we're not able to place signage in public waters but we are certainly open to other suggestions. Per our profile we do offer layalong slips by request and would be happy to accommodate you with a side-loading slip on future visits. Thank you for docking with us!

Great protection from the NW wind. Easy access. Good directions on where to dock with a photo of the marina. As advertised power only, but that was all we required.
Marina Response:
Roxie - Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. We sincerely appreciate you and hope to see you again in the future. Happy Sailing!

No restrooms or showers. Put us in a slip with no way to exit the boat without removing our dinghy. No one to greet you or give you slip info. We had to call. Called for the internet password and the person who answered didn't know. We were told another person might call back but never got a call back. Disappointing that it was not a better experience. It was the first poor service we have had on the loop.
Marina Response:
We're sorry that you're frustrated about the situation and, trying to see things from your perspective, we may be too. Unlike many large marinas, we only have a few slips and don’t hold a full-time on-site crew. Instead, we strive to provide above and beyond service via phone and email both prior to and during your stay with us. Though we weren’t there to greet you, we did answer multiple calls from you prior to your stay and it seemed as if all your questions had been answered. Our profile and website both clearly state that we don’t offer restroom or shower facilities and we have no record of a request for a side-boarding slip. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing that you need side boarding if it’s not requested. That being said, there are many restrooms available in the immediate area and we did offer to change your slip assignment to accommodate side-boarding. On your last call, our transient crewmember was in a meeting and another member of our team who doesn’t work in transient rentals stepped in to help. Within fifteen minutes of hanging up, a member of your party was contacted with a WiFi password. Though we can see that boarding from the rear, not being greeted by a smiling face, and not having immediate access to WiFi may be frustrating, we can’t agree that the service you received was anything less than exceptional and we hope you’ll consider changing your review. Regardless, we’re here to help you throughout the rest of your stay with us and hope you’ll come to love our little basin in the heart of Historic St. Andrews.

No finger docks only wall with room for one boat with power. Only has 1-50 amp and 1-30 amp power. Restaurant next to dock was good.

Great location. Easy to stay at L1 slip. Marina responded to my messages on Dockwa quickly.
Marina Response:
Thank you, Debbie! We're really happy you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again soon!

Marina stay was great, the L1 spot marker was gone but we found the spot. The weather was stormy so we left after one night.
Marina Response:
Anthony, thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We wish you could have stayed longer but maybe next time. Happy sailing!

Great location near restaurants and shops. Do not expect any amenities other than electric hookup, not even a bathroom. I give only three stars because of poor communication and unresponsiveness. They do not have any staff onsite, will not answer the phone, will not return phone calls. Only communication was dockwa messages. Their cancellation policy states 48 hour notice so I notified them we planned to leave early and requested a refund for those cancelled days. Received NO response and no refund. If you only want a place to tie up and access electricity it is a good choice. But would not be a good fit if you need anything further.

Great location. Easy in and out.

We draft 5’9” and it was a little tight coming in. We were sitting on the bottom during low tide but other than that, the dock was conveniently located close to great restaurants and a park to walk our dog. Management was very helpful when we needed to change our dates.

Beautiful place with great staff

Great little Marina for getting chores done and having some R&R. It’s right in the middle of the neighborhood of St Andrews with good local eateries and bars. The St Andrews marina has a nice little ships store with the essentials and good fuel prices. Self serve and easy!

Price is right. But, not having shower or latrine facilities is a big drawback. And the maintenance guy at the Shrimp Boat restaurant spraying down the outdoor table apparently pointed the hose directly at my boat portholes, drenching the inside of the boat. Also, add directions to the facility on the web site, and the email confirming reservations. Adding a map of the facility so I could find the slip would be helpful as well, as the slips are not well marked.
Marina Response:
We are very disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us and also sincerely apologize that our neighbors may have sprayed water into your open portholes. We attempt to be upfront with our transient guests regarding the fact that we don't offer shower facilities - it's simply not an amenity we currently have to offer and apologize if you weren't aware ahead of time. We do, however, have a bathroom facility available for tenant use. Lastly, thank you for your feedback regarding navigation - we'll certainly see if we can incorporate more comprehensive directions on our website for future guests. Thank you for staying with us!

Small marina with a big heart! Nice location close to everything you could want - Hunters resaurant across the street is the BOMB! and Happy hour at The Shrimp Boat Resaurant (next to marina) is awesome with live music
Marina Response:
We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We look forward to seeing you next time!
