We were able to rent a boat slip here for two days, and the Dock Master Chip was very helpful on giving us info on which islands we could drive the boat to, and also kept us very informed on the tides. Everyone was very friendly, and the food at the restaurant was great.

Make sure you have driven a boat and are experienced at docking before spending alot of money to be screamed at. We had difficulty docking the boat due to the current, the individual "assisting " us did nothing but yell and scream from the dock without giving any clear direction as to how to go about successfully docking. It was... More

We rented a boat for the afternoon to explore the rivers and had a great time. Everyone was very helpful and courteous showing us how to operate the boat and navigate the river. We had a great time seeing the local wildlife and lots of dolphins.

As we entered the Brunswick Channel I checked Trip Advisor and read the reviews on Morningstar (MS). We took a right turn and headed into Morningstar and have had... More

Not too big, not too small. Friendly, helpful staff. Amazingly clean and amazing rates. When is the last time you found a marina that WANTED live-aboard residents in order to create a boating community? That's what Morningstar Marina at Golden Isles is all about. This might be the perfect marina!

Great location and service. Dock master Mitch was very helpful and knowledgable about the area. The restaurant was nice and we enjoyed a dip in the pool. Enjoyed seeing dolphins in the evening too!

Went shark fishing with Captain Sonny and Brian. After catching bait fish we started to follow the shrimp boats. We saw many dolphins who follow the shrimp boats then dropped our lines to catch the sharks who also follow the shrimp boats. We caught 10-12 sharks, took pictures then released them. It would take 5-10 minutes to land the sharks,... More
