Great spot to stop heading north or south while transiting the eastern seaboard, Beat the line at Fernandina docks. Quiet, charming with a crew house. Plenty of deep water just be mindful of the last green on port coming into town. 74’ 6.5 draft no problem. Could use some dock carts other than that was very nice. Cumberland island close by, I will return with bigger vessels and look forward to this area again.

Small town. Easy walking. Doc hand gave us the nickel tour of the town. Dropped us off at the best bar in town and walked back.

Nice little town. Very friendly. New marina. Great docks with pump out at your dock. David was very helpful in helping us safely dock in a strong current. Will consider arriving at slack tide in future. We plan to return.

St. Mary’s is a wonderful town. The docks are excellent and Colin and David couldn’t have been nicer. Thanks for a great stay.

We spent close to two weeks here and it was wonderful. There's not currently a lot of dock space, but they are planning to expand in the coming years. Marina facilities are in a house a short walk away, but they are planning to upgrade that as well. The dock master, Colin, is super helpful and a joy to chat with and the dock hands are also very friendly and helpful.
The old part of the town of St Marys is just a couple of blocks away where there are several bars and restaurants, a beautiful waterfront with ferry service to the Cumberland Island National Seashore, two interesting museums including a submarine museum, many little shops and a wonderful bookstore, and a fascinating history, which you can learn about at the history walk park right beside an intriguing cemetery. During our stay there were several community events including a ghost walk as part of the Halloween festivities. The ghost walk featured local residents in full costume acting as historical figures from the town's past doing a great job of explaining tidbits of the history in an entertaining and almost spooky fashion. We departed well before Thanksgiving but understand that the community celebrates then with equal enthusiasm and caters to boaters to some degree. I highly recommend stopping in here whether you're traveling by boat or not.

A wonderful stay at their sturdy, new floating docks. Their dock staff was great, insisted on driving us to the grocery store & wouldn’t even accept a tip. Will definitely be back!
