    Easy access off the AICW. Well protected. Friendly and professional crew. Clean restrooms. Needed ice and since the office is across the water from the docks they motored over with a bag for us. WiFi could some attention,

    Know what you are getting, or not getting, at this marina. First, very friendly and helpful staff. If you need fuel at the mouth of St John's river it's here. Do not permit yourself to be put on the outside of the dock. The current is horrendous. Large containerships pass close buy. There is a ferry adjacent to the dock which arrives and departs every half hour. There is nothing here if you are traveling with family. Wifi leaves much to be desired. This is a working marina. Honestly, aside from the friendly staff I do not understand the 5-star ratings from others. Oh, and the Pelican Guano stench will definitely get your attention.

    It's back in business! New docks. Very nice restaurant at the docks and downtown. Beautiful little town. The staff was very accommodating. I think you will be pleased with the new docks.

    Very accommodating. We were able to pull into our slip after office hours (the marina called us to ensure we were still coming. Provided slip instructions and where to find the restroom key card.) Very nice dog run. Clean showers and restrooms. West Marine and grocery within a mile of the marina. Several restaurants give a 10% discount on food if you present your marina key card.

    Overall not a bad experience. Except for the restaurant, there is nothing at Sunbury, GA. We were the only boat on the dock. Water is provided by garden hoses run down the dock. There is no pump out. We had to stay an extra 2 nights because of the weather. The docks are not the cleanest but acceptable. Didn't use the "showers/restroom" as they are actually in a guest house of the owner and a bit of a walk. The restaurant appeared very busy.

    Very accommodating staff. Had to leave the boat longer than desired for personal reasons and was able to renew or reservation via Dockwa several times. Enterprise car rental close by. Not much in the way of eateries in the vicinity. Savannah is about 15 min drive from the marina. Laundry and restrooms clean. Gated facility.

    Great location for walking the seaside town of Beaufort. The staff was very accommodating. Good wifi. Head facilities were just ok and not located within the marina. If you are heading south and need the bridge open you must get to the bridge before 1500 or else you'll wait until 1800 and the marina will be then closed.

    Every one of the previous positive reviews is spot on. Very friendly crew. Well protected and quiet. The gift bag is a nice touch. The restrooms are not spacious but are clean and tidy. Key card access at night.

    Nice location. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. All slips are transient. Restrooms clean but men's room has 1 shower and 1 toilet. We were expecting a little more from the Town. A mile walk to the Piggly Wiggly. Wifi could have been better. Overall not bad.

    Very nice marina. Everything is within walking distance. Diesel fuel available at the slips. Would have enjoyed better wifi. Men's restrooms and showers need updating bad. Staff friendly and helpful.

    Great little, marina. There was plenty of water to approach the fuel dock and slips. Nice location. Close to the beach (2 blocks) nice eateries. Dockmaster Dee was very helpful. A little walk to the very clean restrooms. Only criticism wifi is a little weak. Not a lot of slips so make your reservations early.

    Great Location. Clean restrooms. Very helpful staff. Quick refuel and pump out. The prime rib at the restaurant was ok, a good portion but, not what I expected after the reviews. Wifi is good.

    Very good location. Makes for a short trip from Coinjock. Water supply not so good. Docks need some repair. The bathrooms are clean. This marina has potential but it's not there yet.

    Excellent family-owned marina! Great staff. Docks are newly refurbished. Clean restrooms. Free laundry! Nice location just before the Alligator River Pungo River Canal heading North. Easy access off the ICW. Good depth.
