    Great place. Helpful staff. We had urgent electrical short problem and dockmaster and electrician sorted it immediately [on a Sat.]. Excellent restaurant [we had take out].
    Only issue relates to constant chopping water due to boat traffic in channel - marina not well protected from that unfortunately.
    Their docks are fixed, well built, but have stubby fingers between slips, so make sure you dock stern in.
    We had some confusing conversation on VHF on arrival regarding directions, so just be clear what you need help with and where you should be docking; staff great at helping us dock. They have significant tidal currents so try and come in close to slack tide - just makes it easier.
    We would go there again definitely.

    Great dock master, but pricey. It’s $4.00/ft or $3.50/ft with BoatUS discount.
    Also, strong current and wakes from boats.

    Tough spot for us, fixed docks, and lots of traffic and no one cares about no wake zone. Staff and facility nice, location ok.

    In the 15 months we have been on the loop, we have probably stayed in well over 100 marinas. The best I can say about Hoffman's is the professionalism of the dock hands. They are some of the best I have dealt with. They need to be good as the current was the worst i have encountered. It took Magic 3 attempts to get into a slip. Not to brag but, I am very good after some 45 years on the water. Without the dock hands and with the terrible current, I do not think it could have been done. Once secured, the facilities are reasonable. The restaurant kinda sucked. So only 3 stars from Magic.

    Strong currents. Competent, helpful dock hands that made docking easy. Good electric. Nice pool. Free laundromat. Two restaurants on premises.

    However, the T-heads are fixed docks. There is a 7 foot tide. At low tide, we could get off the boat amidship, but at high tide, we were 6 feet above the dock. Fortunately, we hand a step ladder that made entry and leaving precarious, but possible. Be aware of this if you are going to use the T-head.

    Came in March 24 needing emergency repairs on a delivery boat. It was pre season and Hoffman's had the mechanic and space. Great restaurants near by. Thanks again Larry.

    A beautiful facility that Larry has completely redone. Tricky currents though and annoying RR bridge siren. Great restaurants and wide inlet. Busy channel but fun area.
