Ian Cummings, Jack and the rest of the team are the best. We ALWAYS visit here, as we enjoy the people as well as the great marina. Food is top shelf here too.

Deckhands tore off our stern railing. They had no idea what they were doing or how to dock a 70’ boat. Electricity not always working. Water not always working. 15 minutes from the inlet. Many boats going by. Wakes were noisy and kept us awake. The marina is under construction and looks nothing like the photos on the website. Would never go back.

Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Floating docks just about all completely rebuilt after being damaged in last year’s hurricane Isiah. Fat Andy’s Burgers just a 45 minute walk, do it they are great.

Staff was great. The docks were brand new and really nice. Definitely a crowded overnight stop on the ICW. The staff gave us the number of a local driver who took us on a quick provisioning run. Would definitely stop again if we're up this way again.
Marina Response:
Thanks for the review, partek! Please stop and see us again if you make it back this way. We hope to be even better next time!

Easy access from the ICW. AWESOME dock master and crew. Advised of current, wind, and approach concerns. Didn’t use the restaurants at the facility but they are highly regarded. Very nice location.
Marina Response:
Thanks for the review! It's important to us that we make every transient arrival and departure as seamless as possible. Glad to hear that we were helpful. Please visit us again - we aim to continuously improve and we will be even better next time!

Crowded and no pump out installed yet -even though they advertised online as having one. Lots of construction. Nice staff. Friendly and helpful.

by out2cee on Jun 03, 2021
Marina is still under repair from a storm 2 years ago. Temp walkways, only dockage was on the outside of the T dock on a busy waterway.
Marina Response:
Thanks for the review. We are actually finishing up a rebuild from Hurricane Isaias in August of 2020. We try to notify all transient guests in advance as to the current situation on our docks. We apologize if we dropped the ball in your case.

Great place. Still recovering from Hurricane damage but they are trying hard to satisfy. No trash cans on the docks or anywhere on the property
Marina Response:
Thanks for the review, pegasus1! I apologize that you were unable to find the trash cans. With ongoing construction they can be hard to spot. Hopefully we will see you this coming weekend and we will be glad to show you the current trash can locations. We will have trash cans on A-Dock once the plumbing installation is complete.

We left a day early because we had to be on the T dock outside on the ICW. Rock-n-rolled all night long and no sleep. We had reservations well in advance and should have been told if they did not have a slip inside. I would not have gone if I knew we were going to be on the fuel dock outside. I would like credit for the second night as we left the Dock right after 11 AM on May 30. Will not go back there!

Great people great Marina--we came in late at night (8:45 PM) and they stayed and helped us into a tricky spot Tim

by daysailj on Oct 30, 2019
Good help on the dock, two restaurants on premises
Marina Response:
Thanks very much for acknowledging our dock staff! It's a harder job to do correctly than most people would think but we try to make every landing as safely and comfortably as possible. Safe travels but please come back and stay with us again.

by coastbusters on Oct 18, 2019
Always one of our favorites! Marina manager, Bill Gregory, is the best of the best. The place has everything you need for an overnight or extended stay.
Marina Response:
Thanks very much but we couldn't to it without the rest of our service minded staff! Look forward to seeing you again on your next stop. Safe travels---Bill
