Great stop and very friendly folks

by Joe R. - Verified user on May 28, 2023
Absolutely reluctant to tell how much we enjoyed our stay there, if only to make sure that we don’t have to fight to get back in! The marina staff is excellent, and the sense of community from the boaters that are there all of the time, made it a really fun place to stay. Wednesday, potluck, dinners, nightly happy hours at the tiki hut, and just a sense of everyone helping each other makes this place a great marina!

We had a great experience at this “old Florida” style marina with lots of charm and character. Facilities were excellent and WiFi good. Very close walk to town. We recommend the outdoor bar at Frigates (about a 10 mins walk).

by Mike P. - Verified user on May 17, 2023
Very scenic location in the calm Eau Gallie river manager quite helpful and friendly.

by Doris W. - Verified user on May 08, 2023
This marina is a small quaint marina with lots of local sailboats. The staff was cordial and accommodating to us. We will stay here again when in the area. We always enjoy this marina. This was our second visit and will definitely be back when in this area.

by Tim C. - Verified user on Apr 24, 2023
We always enjoy our stop here. It is a small friendly marina tucked just off the ICW. The owner is wonderful, as is everyone who works here or has a boat here. We will be back, for sure!

Charming, deep water (7’) at face pier. Entrance from ICW was 7’. We will try to stop on return to S. Fl in the Fall. Great pizza nearby.

by Mark B. - Verified user on Apr 22, 2023
This is a wonderful marina in a well protected area. We had a fantastic stay and Mike welcomed us with accommodations we had requested. Eau Gallie River provides lots of fun for dingy or kayaks. This is a very friendly marina and town. I wish we weren't so far away as I would come to this marina often. I highly recommend it!

by Alain H. - Verified user on Apr 22, 2023
Owner friendly and helpful. Prices are reasonable. Would stay there again. Thanks Mike!

Our favorite stop going north or south. Great protection, people and room to sail on the ICW! Eau Gallie and the Yacht Basin are a gem. 38' Lagoon 380 S2

Mike is very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable-the area has some beautiful historic homes to the right as you leave the marina. The marina is tucked away from the ICW and very quiet. Pump out at dock if needed. There is canvas maker on site. Fabulous barbecue area with an outdoor sink. Docks are being upgraded with new planks. Nice place to dingy around, kayak or paddle board. Enjoyed our stay.

by Anne W. - Verified user on Apr 03, 2023
Very nice little marina with a friendly staff. The restrooms and showers are clean and the washer/dryer did the job. We bicycled across the bridge to Publix. Great bike path alongside the highway. There was a nice little pavilion with picnic tables for Docktails and lots of sitting space. It’s not a fancy marina but we would stay here again.

by Tom L. - Verified user on Mar 30, 2023
Great spot. Very nice people. Good dining nearby.

Quiet harbor. Nice people. Nice facilities. You can walk to town.

by George W. - Verified user on Mar 23, 2023
Small marina but very comfortable with significant live aboard community. They were very welcoming with a regular pot luck dinner on Wednesday night. I will put this on my preferred stops along the ICW!

by Daniel W. - Verified user on Mar 21, 2023
Mike, the owner, was very nice. Please well maintained, quiet!, close to places to eat and not far from grocery. Each trip on Uber/Lyft to airport. Beach across the bridge walking or bike. Great find worth a stop for sure

by Peter & MIchelle G. - Verified user on Mar 18, 2023
Great stop over with very friendly and professional service. The bathrooms and showers were the best I have seen anywhere!

Mike took care of us. Thanks

by Lisa H. - Verified user on Mar 09, 2023
Nice, low key atmosphere, very protected water, easy approach, other marina guests were super friendly and helpful. Very nice showers and restrooms and easy walk to cute little town of Eau Gallie. Would stay here again and again. Easy to book and communicate with Mike, the owner, through Dockwa.

Beautiful location and nice facility, however, we never saw or heard from a single staff member during our 3 night stay. Initial response was quick and we were assigned a slip number through a Dockwa message. When we arrived, we hailed on the radio, called two phone numbers, but got no response. Our assigned slip was occupied, so we had to take up the only available side tie slips right next to the laundry. Thankfully, there were several patrons (including those who were double booked with us) who all jumped in to help us with the dock lines as it was gusting close to 40 kts when we arrived. All confirmed that they rarely saw any employees on site. We understood it was a Sunday, and some small marinas like this do not always have staff available, but a heads up when we received the slip assignment message would have been appreciated. I sent a message back through Dockwa telling them where we tied up, but never got a response. Since we were getting off the boat for a few days it didn't matter that we didn't get the bathroom or wifi codes. Again, the other patrons were more than willing to help us out, but really....a 3 night stay with absolutely no contact?? I'll give 3 stars because this is a nice, very protected spot, and we are very self sufficient, but can't give more due to lack of any communication with staff or owners.

A great little marina where everyone is extremely friendly.

by Terisa B. - Verified user on Feb 09, 2023
Very friendly marina. We stopped in for a quick 2 days while Karen from Karen's Canvas worked on getting us a new bimini and hatch cover. We stayed on the perfect nights so we got to join in on the marina potluck. Great little marina close to Melbourne art district & lots of great restaurants/ bars.

Hidden gem of the ICW. Wonderful place

by Lynn D. on Dec 30, 2022
The owner, Mike, greeted us with 2 other men to help us tie up. This is a very clean and picturesque Marina with proximity to Publix and restaurant choices. Uber is a quick call to anything you need.(We have folding bikes but used Uber for a large provisioning.) I walked to Planet Fitness one day and ran the causeway bridge sidewalk another day. My husband cycled to Bangs for a great haircut. Laundry, docks, bathrooms and all amenities are well maintained. Especially loved taking the dingy a very calm, short distance to Frigates for a glass of wine and a fantastic dinner watching the sunset. Mike is a text away if you need anything. More personal than large marinas. No fuel, but everything else.

by John C. - Verified user on Dec 15, 2022
The basin is beautiful, protected on FOUR SIDES, and everyone was super friendly! Love this marina, one of the hidden gems off of the ICW.

by Sherry H. - Verified user on Dec 05, 2022
This marina is a hidden gem! If you are looking for a quiet, quaint, friendly old Floridian vibe, this is it. The wifi & electric is good. Baths and laundry are old, but my understanding is they will be renovated in the near future. Docks are older but in good shape, and very convenient in slip pump out. Easy, short walk to a very eclectic downtown with humor in Eau Gallie's history boards throughout town. Great stop to add to the cruiser's destination list!

by Robert P. - Verified user on Dec 03, 2022
Great small friendly marina.

by Kevin W. - Verified user on Dec 02, 2022
This may be one of the coolest little marinas I have ever been to. The marina is very well protected from all winds. The pilings were in good condition - no issues tying off. Anything they are lacking in amenities compared to some of the newer marinas is made up for in the great little surrounding area which had great little restaurants and shops. I wish I could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!

by Tori D. - Verified user on Nov 24, 2022
Sweet little spot!!!!

by Scott S. - Verified user on Nov 24, 2022
Beyond FANTASTIC!!!! The marina is in the most beautiful setting. Truly a hidden gem. Owner, staff and other boaters are great. Will return and refer. A must!!!!!

Excellent hospitality \n

by Nancy B. - Verified user on Nov 12, 2022
We found this gem as we sought shelter from an oncoming storm. Stayed for a week. Mike was great and friendly as was all staff. Local boaters were friendly and proficient in protecting us all together against 60+ winds.\nHoping you won't find this place so we can be assured a slip next time! Blessings to All at Eau Gallie Boat Basin.

by Todd D. - Verified user on Nov 12, 2022
Excellent. We liked it so much we elected to stay an extra day.

by Anthony E. - Verified user on Nov 10, 2022
We came in at the last minute without a reservation for two nights and stayed for five. The atmosphere and charm is that of an old Florida Marina and if we are lucky we will be back. Everyone we encountered from staff to gusts were very friendly and helpful. This Marina has my highest recommendations.

by Mark S. - Verified user on Oct 24, 2022
great location, nice docks easy in and out, clean bathrooms.

by Peter M. on Sep 03, 2022
This marina is quaint, charming, and most certainly well protected. The boating community there is friendly and always willing to help. Our stay was awesome. We highly recommend keeping your boat here or stopping by to experience the area. It’s also interesting to note this marina originated in 1896 so the history is amazing and releases an old time feel. The owner is “hands on” and goes above and beyond to make you feel at home. The amenities are comfortable and there is a canvas shop on site. We highly recommend this marina to all who plan to visit the Melbourne area. Peter and Stephanie Meilunas

by Lora B. - Verified user on Aug 22, 2022
Great, quiet location. Friendly staff and other occupants. Easy access, just follow the markers. Close to restaurants, ACE Hardware, and more. Definitely worth a stop.

by Lawrence M. - Verified user on Jul 14, 2022
Beautiful small town marina with wonderful people. I would take this marina over any other. Had a pot luck dinner the night we were there and had a wonderful time! Thanks!

by Pamela M. - Verified user on Jul 05, 2022
Great, friendly people. Very welcoming. Would come back anytime.

by Russell O. - Verified user on Jun 28, 2022
lovely simple old fashioned quiet marina. No help finding dock or help docking. a real sailors marina with the basic necessities. Electric, water, kitchen, showers, toilets.

by Greg N. - Verified user on Jun 21, 2022
We arrived at Eau Gallie Yacht Basin about 1:30 pm on a Thursday and the office was closed. Called two different phone numbers for the marina and no answers. We left messages, but no one returned our phone call. Did not have a slip assignment or restroom codes. Finally tied up on the face of a dock behind a larger cruiser. We needed ice for our cooler, so were told by another transient boater that we might find some in town. Walked downtown but had no luck finding ice. When we got back to the marina, the office attendant said her husband was out in the marina looking for us, but we never received a phone response to the messages we left. The marina does not sell snacks or ice like the Waterway Guide implies. We finally connected with a local resident boater, who ubered my husband to find ice. If you are looking for a marina with simple amenities like ice or snacks and an office attendant, go somewhere else. The only good thing I can say about Eau Gallie Yacht Basin is that some of the resident boaters are very friendly and helpful.

by Laurel C. - Verified user on Jun 18, 2022
We are very happy,this is a great community of sailors. We have been here for a few weeks we had to leave the boat for some travel. I never worried once about our boat "Anyroad", I knew she would be taken care of. The small Artist community of Eau Gallie is very walkable, lots of restaurants and cut boutiques. There is a Publixs about 2 miles away for provisions.

Well protected marina with a nice view and friendly folks!

by Debbie R. - Verified user on Jun 15, 2022
Docks were great. Power was perfect. Water is high quality, people friendly, course into the area wide and well marked. Peaceful. A little hike to restaurants but beautiful neighborhood. Would come back in a minute.

by Craig M. - Verified user on Jun 11, 2022
It was a nice place but there was no gas for the boat. We had to go to a different Marina each day to fill up. They also did not have a convenience store. The service here was very limited. But I work I try to be nice

Wonderful little diamond in the rough. Great hosts, Dave and Karen!

Quiet, pleasant, easy bicycle ride to several nearby restaurants.

by Kelly S. - Verified user on Apr 25, 2022
Great facility but not more that water and electric. Very well protected harbor basin and only 5-10 minutes from the airport.

by Nick M. - Verified user on Apr 06, 2022
This is a great casual little spot for those not looking to impress. No help to the dock, but it was easy. Great outdoor seating and grilling area, cosy clubhouse and totally good bathroom and shower facilities. Not fancy, but totally good! Publix a 2 mile bike ride and little downtown within five blocks. Look forward to staying here again.

by Bradley M. - Verified user on Apr 04, 2022
Friendly! All services available.Comfortable but no luxurious.

by Gary B. - Verified user on Mar 30, 2022
Very calm well protected marina

by Todd H. - Verified user on Mar 29, 2022
This place needs some updating. The people are nice, but it is where old sailboats go at the end of their life cycle. A new owner with vision could turn this marina into a real gem.

by Brian W. - Verified user on Mar 18, 2022
Good protection from winds. Slip are pretty tight. Would like to get WiFi, bathroom codes, upon arrival or by email instead of having to ask residents

by Robert M. - Verified user on Mar 09, 2022
Staff and owner went above and beyond to get three slips for a windy weekend. The marina sits just off the ICW and up a small river to a quiet harbor. It is set close to many beautiful oak tree lined streets and it’s an easy walk to many restaurants and stores. The local harbor host, John, was very helpful as well as the other local slip holders.
Marina Response:
It was great having you with us. We hope you enjoy the rest of your journey.

by Steve S. - Verified user on Mar 07, 2022
Charming little marina with lovely grassy area, fire pit, bbq, covered tables, and string lights. Pet friendly. ( feels like Cabot Cove!) One washer/dryer $1.50 load. Restrooms with showers. Nice boaters lounge. All people very nice. Easy walk to restaurants and some shops. Had groceries delivered. Free pump out at slip.
Marina Response:
Thank you for the kind review. We look forward to your visit next time through.

by paul n. - Verified user on Feb 07, 2022
Nice place and have stayed before but adamantly opposed to dockwa cancelation policy, no one at the marina returned phone calls all afternoon about arrival and no one at the marina to assist slip. Neither marina or dockwa gave information saying this might be the case and provided further information. TOTALLY unacceptable. And I worked in the marine industry or related for over 35 years.
Marina Response:
I am unclear of the Dockwa cancelation policy you are referring to. We never charge for cancelations at Eau Gallie Yacht Basin because we realize boating to a destination is rarely an exact science. I am sorry that you did not have a great check in experience. The marina has been here for over 125 years so I hope that most of the time we get it right. Feel free to call my cell and we will try and make sure your next visit is awesome. Mike 714-306-7233

I love the charm and friendliness of this marina. There is a nice grassy area and shady pavilion to hang out. Very quiet. Beautiful neighborhood. There aren’t many transient slips and I’m happy they could accommodate us. Next time, we will ask to be on the face dock as the slip we are in is quite narrow. Still, a great stop!

We love Eau Gallie Yacht Basin. Friendly people, good safe harbor- protected from all winds, walk to town, nice lounge/cabana/gas grill to use.

by Gary S. - Verified user on Jan 09, 2022
Protected dockage was smooth as glass. The ICW was choppy and 17kts of wind made for a long day. Dockhands assisted in getting us tied up and we're very helpful. The restrooms were clean and decorated. Everything was clean and neat. We walked to Frigate Barr and Grill for an awesome dinner. We will visit again .

A friendly boutique marine . Easy access to town and grocery shopping .

by Ann B. - Verified user on Dec 31, 2021
No one monitors VHF channel - had no idea where my slip was and there were no staff on site. No answer on office phone - on vacation. Overall a pleasant little marina, good protection. Seems like a community of snowbirds who enjoy each other’s company. Facilities, bathrooms clean but old.

by Patricia S. - Verified user on Dec 19, 2021
No frills to drive the cost up, but everything a cruiser might need is either on site or nearby. Marina is clean and friendly.

by Bruce K. - Verified user on Dec 16, 2021
What a gem of a marina! The owner Mike was hands on with helping us getting in and out and made sure we felt welcomed. We were invited to their Wednesday night pot luck dinner and everyone was so great. Our Golden ... Sadie Belle was so happy for all the hugs and treats she got. We look forward to returning in the Spring.

by David F. - Verified user on Nov 26, 2021
What a hidden surprise! While the docks are older the dock master was very helpful getting us safely tied up on the old pumpout dock t-head. He even invited us to the marina Thanksgiving Party. Very close to walk into town and explore.

by Harriet L. - Verified user on Nov 24, 2021
This rating is based on the friendliness of the people there. Everyone was very nice. They have a live aboard community that are very welcoming. There is a “Temple”. Which is a covered structure with sink, ice, cooking supplies and grill where people meet daily to visit. Laundry on site, very quiet area. Will go back.

by Mike S. - Verified user on Nov 16, 2021
Very clean and comfortable marina. This is the second time we stopped there. Definitely nothing fancy but a very friendly live-aboard community. We stayed 3 days because we had family in town for a wedding. The view is great from the last slip on the face dock. My only complaint is that the wifi is basically non-existant. But they still get a 5. We will be back.

by Jodi S. - Verified user on Nov 15, 2021
Beautiful cove with a nice little marina - a club member came on a Sunday to help us tie up. Short walk to Eau Gallie “downtown” with good restaurants. We would go again.

Wonderful hidden gem! VERY nice people working there and wonderful residents in the marina. Best way to describe the atmosphere is "campy". They have a Firepit, outdoor kitchen etc.

Dave was not friendly. Locals have seem to taken over. Can't correct mistakes on dockwa or with Dave on reservation. A date error made on Dockwa could not be corrected. I got charged for 3 days but only allowed to stay for 2. Emails and phone calls were not answered promptly to try to remedy error.
Marina Response:
Sorry that an error was made in your booking. Unfortunately the Dockwa software is not as user friendly as I would like either. We can only accommodate a limited amount of transient boats so if the dates are wrong most likely we will be booked. The good news is I never charge someone for a service that isn’t provided and if you were unable to stay I will refund you. Email or text with your name and reservation date and it will be resolved. Mike 714-306-7233

by Deborah K. - Verified user on Apr 15, 2021
Very friendly place. One of the boaters pitched in to help us tie up. Wednesday is pot luck. Only criticism is you can’t reach anyone by phone or radio to confirm where they want you to go. No staff on site.

Nice small marina, some very friendly people. Every Wednesday they have a potluck! Clean showers and bathrooms .would recommend a walk to local brewery!

Absolutely love the marina. Great location with an Arts District in walking distance along with plenty of marine shops nearby. Facility is clean and constantly being improved upon. There’s a great community of resident liveaboards and seasonal folks. You always feel welcome. It’s location is great for hiding from storms, too. Thanks for the great memories!

by Louis W. - Verified user on Mar 29, 2021
Very laid back, nice spot. Not many transient spots, but if you can get one they’re very easy side-ties. No current or tide issues. Helpful folks to help you tie up. Dockwa reservation. No WiFi that we saw. If you stay, make sure to walk over to Oh Biscuit! For breakfast excellent food. Would stay again for sure.

Great nook and cranny and has been remodeled. Friendly folks and close to boutique shops and eateries within walking distance. Only real downside is it’s not close to real shopping. Wickham Rd or go across the causeway. You’ll need transportation.
