Green Turtle Bay Marina is conveniently located just beyond the Barkley lock on the Cumberland River. It has fuel, floating wooden docks, a well stocked ships store, spa with swimming pool (though the pool is closed for the season) nice bathrooms, showers and laundry. They have a restaurant and a Yacht Club on site. You can rent golf carts or borrow their courtesy car to drive into town.

We stayed for 2 nights. We enjoyed dinner at the Yacht Club with friends on our last evening. Very nice!

Handy to the Barkley Dam and Locks, this is a nice stop. One of the few marinas that reserve the dock right next to the individual showers, laundry and office for transients. A courtesy van is available for 2 hours. More than enough time to visit the closest grocery store in Grand River, liquor store, post office and poke your head into a few shops. Three restaurants on site, plus marine store. Fuel and pump-out available plus haul out and service if needed. Would give them a 5 if they were easier to reach by phone.

Big marina is very accommodating, with nice showers although there are only 4 shower/toilet rooms. Their transient docks were full when we tried to make our reservations, but they were able to get in on the far side of the marina. We had restrooms and showers there, but all other facilities, like laundry, were a quick dinghy ride across the bay (or 2-½ miles by road). (They were completely up front about this when we booked it.) Everything you need is here. Good ship store. Great service department. Three restaurants. Although I will say the restaurants were only mediocre, even the yacht club.

We left the boat and had some fiberglass work done, while we went home for a few weeks. They did a fine job at a fair price. Boat was ready to go when we returned.

Excellent marina with a great staff. Carefully follow the channel entering. Wide slips with long finger piers. A large resort with lots to do. Tons of places to take a dog for a really long walk. Well stocked ship store with an impressive selection. Patti's will pick you up and drop you back at your slip. Good courtesy car. Golf carts are available for rent. A very busy maintenance department that works to fit everyone in.

Watch the channel markers or you'll be staying for a lot longer than you planned,

Once in the marina the fuel dock is straight ahead and they are there to help you tie up.

If you are staying for the night they direct you to your assignment, help you tie up and assist you with anything you need.

Make a point to use the free shuttle from Patti's to have enjoy shopping and an excellent dinner.

We spent a pleasant week here getting some work done on the boat and just relaxing. GTB is a large resort marina with three restaurants, a spa, and several pools. Dockage gets you a temporary membership in the Yacht Club and gives you access to all the facilities and club restaurant.

Enter the marina by way of the marked channel only. The gas dock/office is visible towards the back of the marina when you move through the entrance. Transient dockage with a minimum of 7' depth winter pool is clustered around this dock and assistance is readily provided by competent dock hands. The floating infrastructure is all solid and well maintained. Separate Bath/Shower rooms and a full laundry are located near the office and are clean. Cellular service is very good and the marina Wi Fi is excellent with good connectivity and excellent speeds. Grand River is a mile away and the marina runs a shuttle to town. There is a surprisingly good supermarket there. Patti's 1880's Settlement restaurant is the main attraction and they will pick you up at the marina for dinner if you so choose. The marina also offers a courtesy car that will get you to Paducah (25 miles) for major shopping.

Green Turtle Bay also offers an AGLCA discount: Stay for a week and pay for five nights. It is definitely an excellent stop.

This was our 5th visit to GTB. But the first time on our cruiser. We enjoyed our three day visit and found that all of our needs were met. We were impressed how well they have adapted to the willing worker shortage. We witnessed the management and leadership leadership team joining in with all of the workers to make our visit memorable. Everyone there made us feel welcome. Good Internet, courtesy car, deep clean water and clean safe surroundings.

Green Turtle Bay is a beautiful resort setting with skilled mechanics and helpful dock staff. Facilities include several on site restaurants, service yard, and spa. Facilities are clean and well maintained. Part of our family stayed in the charming cottages one weekend-- tastefully decorated and comfortable.

After 60 miles cruising in torrential rain to have 4 dock hands guide us in and tie us up to dock; sO helpful and supportive. Great accommodations and service. Friendly. Lots of loopers. Definitely a place to return. Special thanks to Byron.
