Marina, dock, facilities great. However extremely noisy due to bands and crowds leaving after band was over.
Thank you for staying with us. I apologize for the noise disturbance. It was a busy Tall Ships Festival weekend with more bands and activity than usual. We welcome you back anytime.

Stayed on what thought would be a quiet Thursday. Wrong! Rowing club takes up most parking. Loud bunch of drunks swearing past 10 in lot using restroom. Wife and daughter afraid to go to parking lot. Docks ok but mine had holes in it and nail heads where rubber bumper pulled away from dock. no trash containers on docks and must carry trash to land. Pump out worked at end of dock but no water hose for flushing system properly. Would help if had signs on end of dock to no which side to go down. Many paddle boarders in middle of channel don’t care if they are in the way or not.
I am very sorry to hear of the issues you experienced during your stay with us. The issues you experienced are uncommon. I can assure you that I will check on the condition of the guest dock and immediately address any needed repairs. Thank you for bringing to our attention the activity in the public parking lot adjacent to the guest slips. I will have additional security checks in the area to prevent this type of disturbance in the future. I am so sorry you had to deal with this while trying to enjoy a peaceful getaway.
I encourage you to give us another try. Please contact me direct should you wish to book a future visit.
Again, thank you for your feedback...we will use it to improve the overall guest experience.

I was assigned a slip that was too small, but this wasn't readily apparent until entering the slip was attempted. The attempt left permanent marks on the hull of my brand new boat.

The docks are well maintained. The showers and laundry were clean and easy to access and use. The only problem was that the slip to which we were assigned was very tight and we had some trouble getting into it because the girl in the office who answers the phone doesn't know east from west and we initially went part way down the side of the finger the girl told us to go and quickly realized she told us the wrong side. I asked her whether our bow would be facing east or west when we entered the slip and she said, "It will be facing the dock." Well, what can you say?

Very pleased with our 2 night stay.
Fortunately we were assigned # 21 easy in and out , drawback it’s on the waste pump out dock.
Boats coming in to use dump station a bit of a nuisance.
For the price it would make sense to be able to choose a slip. We were there midweek and there were many slips available.
I have a 36 ft Sailboat and further down the dock it would have been tight.
Bathrooms were clean and security locks worked well.
My wife and daughter used the snack shop for snacks.
Took the tender to where the Catalina Express docks for dinner. Walking to restaurants and good coffee is a distance.
So bring a bike if you have room.

I love the guest slips, however I wish I could pick my slip, I would pay more for a larger slip and would appreciate the ability to chose my slip from what is available and then pay the price. Most campgrounds have this feature, see Reserve America or Reserve California

Arrived to find out the assigned slip (#3) was too short. 30ft slip for a 33 foot boat. Had to dock in an alternate slip (#7) and contact the marina. After 5-10 mins on the phone and following messages through the dockwa system, the alternate slip was approved. Some of the messages from dockwa seemed to suggest I requested a 30 ft slip and should have requested a 40 ft slip. This is not the case. I did not request a size slip. I entered my boat parameters (length, breadth etc.) into the system and it should pick the proper size slip.
In any case, I have docked at the DP marina many times before without any of these problems. Not really pleased this time. Not to mention that the price seemed to have taken a jump.
I found the numeric key code replacing the old key system an improvement. It worked as expected.
Hope going forward the slip assignment logic will be improved so we don't have these issues.
