This Marina is an absolute hidden gem!! Brand new, great docks, great power, and even decent Wifi service, you can walk to restaurants, casino, and more... and Schenectady is probably one of the nicest, most "high-end" cities in Upstate NY. Also, the young man that is in charge of the Marina, James Donovan, is truly exceptional. I stayed there for a week, and every time I'd see him, he would ask how everything was, and if there was anything he could do to make my stay better. Also, he always had a smile on his face -- which honestly, can sometimes be in short supply in marinas in this part of the world, especially during peak season!

Lovely Marina, great dock hand assistanceđź‘Ť

Marina is new and beautiful. Very few boats on July 4th weekend and we couldn’t find any employees. There was no information on any of the amenities. We did have a good dinner at the brewery on site but had no access to pools bathrooms etc.

This was a New Marina. However, there was no dockmaster. After walking around we found an office who managed to call somebody who was the dockmaster. We did get a Wi-Fi. There is no place to put trash and the marina was not well laid out be used by boats. Since there were no services provided and the amenities weren’t there the price was outrageous.

Really like this place. Grants was very good, dogs had great time playing in the wide open manicured field. Thanks.

Marina was clean and neat. Don’t expect any help, directions etc. made a reservation on line (no one answers phone even though message says their hours), you can leave a message but it’s hours before someone calls you back. Online they ask what time you’re arriving so someone will meet you. Nope. Don’t answer radio, don’t answer phone. So we just picked a spot. Marina is deserted, only 3-4 boats there. Someone finally calls several hours later (from my morning message) didn’t even know we were already docked. Gave us WiFi code (hardly a signal) asks if we need bathroom code. That’s it. Nothing about where to take trash if we have, do we need a pump out, info on area, zip. We’re pretty self sufficient so it wasn’t an issue but many folks need help and would be disappointed.

Fantastic stop 50’ off the canal. The Shaker and Vine is a restaurant next to the marina. They have a chocolate fondue that is to die for, plus red wine slushes. Live music on Friday nights. Modern harbor no rocking

Marina was great, food was great, atmosphere was great. Only downfall is there are no showers and you’re not allowed to use the pool which to me is misleading since it’s in the photos advertising the marina.

One of the most unique marinas in NY. A must visit if passing through. This Harbor is a man made cut lagoon off the Mohawk River. The Marina itself doesn’t offer many amenities itself but that’s not what this place is a about. The surrounding grounds are amazing. Walking distance to Rivers casino with its shops and restaurants, short shuttle bus available (or walk) to downtown Schenectady and the countless restaurants, theatre and nightlife. Druthers brewery overlooks the Marina with outdoor seating. Enjoy the summer Concerts in the park right from your slip. Brand new docks and facilities, clean grounds with walking paths along the River. Hotels at the casino and a short few minute walk away. A place to see and be seen.

Brand new marina. Dock master Jr was fantastic. Good location lots restaurants to choose from. We stayed 2 nights. We will be back next season

by lewis1322 on Oct 07, 2019
We had a great time on the canal, it was our first time. Your harbor was very easy to access and maneuver, as well as clean & safe and a very short walk to our hotel (court yard Marriott). Great layout. We look forward to it again in the spring.
Marina Response:
Thank you for the effort to let us know how your experience was. I’m glad you had as much fun as you did, it is exactly what we are striving to provide. We can’t wait to welcome you back next year as a regular. The place is even more electric during the heart of the season. See you next year!!!

Loved it here! Arrived for harbor fest concert in early afternoon. Dock attendant was right there and very helpful. Lots to do with the restaurants and casino. Clean bathrooms, no showers yet - hope that comes soon. Very well lit and felt safe. (make sure you have canvass covers or blinds for windows as it will light up entire boat cabin) Walked to Skyport diner for an awesome breakfast next morning, just over Freeman's bridge. Will come back!

by rogerstites on Aug 11, 2019
Beautiful facility and the staff is fantastic! Very helpful and they work hard to make sure people are checked in quickly and efficiently. We'll be back!

by wheels2 on Jul 26, 2019
This is going to be a great facility once everything is completed. The only thing lacking is bath, shower and laundry. Druthers restaurant is fantastic.

by gpconbeer on Jul 10, 2019
This place is going to be very good. They just need to finish it. Biggest missing item is shower room. Next is pump out, then fuel. Casino with a half dozen restaurants is across the street, about 500 or 600 yards. A restaurant called Druthers is right next door. We didn’t partake but saw that it was very crowded on a Monday night. Very tight entrance but not an issue unless there is a lot of wind. Easy docking once inside.

by scottwp209 on Jul 08, 2019
Dock hands were GREAT! Really need showers and pool, especially when staying more than a day. There is a pool but boaters can’t use it. Casino was great (even though we didn’t win) concerts were great and we enjoyed local brewery on site along with wine/tapas Nice visit but definitely not a five star YET, has potential - needs a boaters touch

by icoulthard on Jul 06, 2019
Great location for the fireworks for July 4. The team here always happy to help you dock, tie and hook up. There needs to be an arrangement made with the facility for bathroom/shower access. There is a portable bathroom unit on site, o showers, and very few marinas I know of don’t offer these facilities.

by bdedon on Jul 05, 2019
What a great night! Great dick service and beautiful facilities. Fireworks were unreal!
Marina Response:
Thanks so much for the 5 star review! Assuming we had great "dock service and beautiful facilities". And yes the fireworks were amazing!

by georgem on Jun 29, 2019
This marina has the potential to be an excellent facility. The staff was friendly efficient and professional. Follow the private channel bouys ( plenty of water, but tight turn) . The docks are brand new and first class. Lots of amenities close by . The WiFi was iffy ( new hardware is supposed to be installed ????) This location did not have a pump out capability ( at least , I couldn’t find one) . I would definitely stop here again.

by thejourney on Jun 10, 2019
Great facility and staff. Real close to a few restaurants and a casino. Did not have showers or pompous or many other amenities for the cost.

by ronjohn on Jul 09, 2018
Could use a few more amenities. No showers, no grills. On the plus side, staff are extremely helpful, and the casino is right there with numerous restaurants.
