Very disappointed in this dock. Some of the power pedestals are shaky and seem ready to fall into the water. Also, the noted "obstruction" under the water is far from appropriate for municipal docks; I was afraid I my running gear was going to hit it, whatever "it" is. Even though I had a reservation, I wasn't able to fit in the available space without asking one of the other boats to move. Finally, the keypad on the gate is very finicky. I was a concerned about going ashore out of fear that I wouldn't be able to get back in. For a major city like Nashville, this dock leaves a lot to be desired.
Hi Griffiba, Thanks for leaving this review to better help us improve the municipal docks. Part of our goal with taking over management of the dock is to help work with Metro Nashville to make them aware of the opportunity and usage potential of our riverfront. It all starts with usage and direct feedback to us. If we have no one coming to the docks we have today then they will never see the need to invest in more docks, better docks etc. The known obstruction is well labeled on all of the documentation and on the dock itself to avoid as it is directly under the bridge. Part of boating and using a shared space requires boaters to dock appropriately, if you leave 20' of space between you and the next boat then they should expect to have to move. On weekends and event days we do our best to ensure people are not doing this as we expect to have full docks on those big weekends! I wish we had enough space to give you 20' between each boat but that is not the reality or expectation at any marina with linear dockage and all boaters should expect to snug to the nearest vessel. All of the electrical and pedestals are inspected each week and have zero issues with "shaky" pedestals, they are all properly secured with brand new GFI breakers, apologies you feel they will fall into the water but that is simply not true. Wish you the best and hope to host you again soon!

The staff was awesome! Very helpful and were present most of the time during our stay. The dock area was clean. The location is amazing!

This is an expensive city dock. For the price you need to have water.

Ant infestation. Very sketchy area surrounding the dock. Abundance of homeless. Would not stay here again.
Hello, Yes, thank you for letting us know about the ants, that issue has been resolved. We are in a major city but have not had any safety or theft issues on the docks as we have a secure gate and code that is regularly changed. Any city has homeless people, its just part of being in a major city such as downtown Nashville.

It was very nice to have someone meet us at the dock to help us park. Several outlets were not working. We hope they are fixed for are next trip downtown. We also hope to see a water hose hook up for water refill. We were appreciative of the locked gate for security.

Hard to beat a dock this easy to pull up to. Only wish there were more.

Very clean. Several garbage cans present. Power was great no problems with breakers. Easy walk to downtown thru locked gate.

Nice downtown location with responsive staff. Attention to locked gate felt secure with good suggestions for restaurants and local knowledge. Lack of water was a surprise but manageable. Music from wedding event space was loud, but stopped by 11pm. The colorful view of city skyline with reflection in the river was amazing.

We had 2 spots reserved but when we arrived there was only room for 1 boat to fit. We had to tie our other boat to the docked boat. I paid for a spot and expect to have one.

Everything was great especially the staff but I wish all of the electric power worked, and water was available

Great to have a working, quality dock in downtown Nashville! Generally easy book via Dockwa and access. Met by dock manager upon arrival who answered any questions and shared the gate access information. 10 minute or so walk over the pedestrian bridge into downtown.
Hopeful they can eventually figure out a way to offer a day rate vs. overnight. Just consider it premium parking if you're headed into downtown for lunch or dinner.

A very solid concrete floating dock with lots of cleats and a rub rail. Great location to walk to downtown. Up the aluminum slip free ramp, around the building then take the elevator up to the bridge. Andrew was there to greet us and was very helpful. The gate has a security combination pad lock. The obstruction that others talk about is directly under the bridge and the dock is painted in that area. So either dock before that or after. Just don't drive along the docks and under the bridge or you will hit it. Apparently it's concrete about 3-4' under water. It has nice electric power poles to plug into but the main reason I give it a 4* is that it there's no water available.

The lock on the gate could be VERY difficult at times. Other than that , great.

A little pricey for 2 hours...

The stay was great until around 4am and a large bust tried to wash us up onto the dock
It washed our cooler overboard. But other than that it was a very nice stay.
