Personnel very nice and accommodating. The marina however is located directly across from where the river meets the ocean making your stay there extremely rough if the wind is off the ocean. What’s worse is that all of the slips are parallel to the river itself. No 5mph limit in this part of the river so every wave hits your boat broadside. Big freighter ships pass through all hours of the day and night. Your boat slams into the floating docks with force comparable to a 40 knot blow. At 3:30 in the morning, a freighter passed through sending everything in our cabinets flying. Even if the weather is bad, you and your boat would be safer on anchor.
