3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed at this Marine in August 2014. Poor toilets is the main problem. Docks were in reasonable shape and a very short walk to all services. Complimentary Coffee and Donuts in the morning was nice. I will stay there again although I hope to see better toilet facilities.

The kids on the docks were great, can't complain there, the location is really good close to town, the marina facilities are tired and they could really use some upgrades, showers/toilets etc. The areas under the ramp up to shore are very rundown and messy. Certainly doesn't compare with Otter Bay on Pender but they do have the location, location,... More

We just finished a boat charter and spent the night in the marina and all was good. We have not been there for 3 years and while it;s not Poet's Cove, the stay was quiet, helpful dock staff, and the town is delightful as always. It's not the best marina in Canada but we had a great time on this... More

Disgusting toilets smelt fishy overflowing garbage cans, no hand towels plugged toilet with more floating logs than the Fraser River and grotty showers a total rip off compared to other B.C marinas very shoddy condition appears to be being milked for all its worth and no re-investing there's not really an alternative if you like the town and its very...

With the number of luxury boats and the number of boating people using this facility it is in deplorable shape. Boards are loose, nothing looks like it has been attended to in years, the anti skid bats on the walkways are deteriorating. The bathrooms are disgusting . There are old pieces of docks and docking material strewn everywhere. They have... More

I agree with the other reviews posted. The docks and facilities are in poor repair. When we stayed, there was an abundance of junk in the water and the whole place smelled pretty unpleasant. The folks working at the marina were very nice, though. It costs extra for garbage and there is no pump-out. Ganges is a great town and... More

I think this Marina could use a bit of sprucing up. They were very professional in helping us get into our reserved slip, but the facilities were only so-so. The toilet and shower facilities are not the nicest and the toilets seemed to plug up. Trash disposal is not included in moorage fees. Docks could use a bit of repair... More

With a great location in the harbor, this marina suffers from total lack of maintenance, repairs and upgrades. With the exception of the mega-yacht dock, the docks are shabby with loose cleats, power boxes that are rusty with many outlets that are defective. More than half the showers don't work. The floors aren't clean, and so forth. The fairways leading... More

My girlfriend and I stayed a couple nights here on two different occasions and the experience was reasonable- though I had the other review in mind when we went there both times and could see its accuracy. Getting the slip assignment wasn't bad though being quite busy we were lucky to get a slip. It was on a broken section... More

Basic marina with basic services BUT the personal services were horrible. After arriving the girl who assisted us dock briefly pointed out the electrical box we were to use and we noted it and then paid for service BUT we only secured the boat before leaving to enjoy the village and go to dinner, thinking we could connect shore power...
