Ben was great. Unfortunately after he departed at 10 the person from B26 on the end had his friends pull in and tie up first by Cantina Bambina then directly behind us blasting music. Very foul lyrics at extreme volume. No care was given to other boaters. The group eventually left after a few hours.

Stay itself was great. The people were friendly, helpful, and easy to work with. The slip itself was essentially a finger pier, which considering how far back in the channel we were, is fine. There was water and electric. Scheduling was a slightly different ball game. I was attempting to leverage the benefit of being a slip holder at another Oasis facility, and there was lots of confusion on the how or what. Ultimately scheduled without the benefit, but took lots of phone calls in between.

A Note from the Marina:

We appreciate this review and the opportunity to improve. As an Oasis Marinas Cruising Club member, slipholders at participating Oasis Marinas are entitled to 2 free nights annually at another participating Oasis Marinas property. However, holiday weekends and special events are excluded from the free nights. This stay was over the July 4th weekend, which is why the free nights could not be used. We hope to welcome this boater back to our dock again in 2020 to deliver another stellar stay!

Still no ice on site, as is available at The Yards. Large parties on boats in the slips. I take it you allow these big yachts to rent out parties. Loud music and fights on the dock. Blood on the dock.

Great facility overall, power pedestals not working and bird poop everywhere were concerning given the price. Simply installing dog cutouts or owls might solve the bird problem. Roger is a phenomenal dock hand and ensured that we found power and had the needed facilities close by. Recommend it to anyone looking for a transient location with access to most needed items minus service for engines or mechanicals, shopping and dining close by are top tier and worth investigating.

Stayed on a mooring for 5 nights. Fantastic location right next to Washington DC. Close to everything -- metro station, Safeway grocery, tons of restaurants and the National Mall. Dinghy dock is five minutes away located between the Y and Z docks where the full time, live-aboards are docked. It's behind a locked gate so seemed very secure. Free laundry was a bonus. Only downside was that there was a lot of construction going on with pounding machinery right on the wharf. Also, it's right under the helicopter flight path so you'll be hearing the whirr of helicopter blades quite frequently. We'd stay here again.

The dock people were very helpful. Power cord available at the slip. Slips not easily identifiable when approaching from the water. Concrete floating slips were large and clean. For price paid, had the following issues: ONE portable bathhouse not acceptable for number of slips. One separate toilet and one shower room with toilet was not air-conditioned and showerhead had to be held to keep water flowing. Faucet difficult to regulate water temp. No WiFi as advertised. Need to take a cab or Uber to get to second set of bath facilities and office at sister (Old Gangplank) Marina.

Bathroom facilities are pathetic. Located on small boat with only two unisex stalls. For the money paid per slip, rates no stars. Marina and slips were fine, but the bathroom facilities were terrible.

Great place, enjoyed our time there. The dinghy dock service is superb with two locations, one very close to the fish market. We were on the moorings. Very pleasant.
