“Nice stop close to the ICW and Atlantic”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Very friendly and helpful staff, floating docks. The pool is small but great on a hot summer day. Coutesy car and bikes are a plus. Easy access to St. Simon's Island reataurants and shops. The downside is the strong current and long walk to the marina bathrooms. Not the best protection from strong storms - it can get pretty choppy when winds are out of the south.

“Great service”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We have had our boat at the marina for several years. The workers are great. It is located in a superb location. There is one restaurant on site and 30 others within a 15 minute drive. You could not pick a better place to moor.

“Everything is great”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Came by boat for a holiday weekend, staff very helpful coming to the dock and with getting fuel, securing lines. This is our second trip here and both times the staff have been great and very knowledgeable with the area and boating. On the first trip they were very helpful in securing our boat because of a tropical storm approaching. Nice treat to wake up to fresh muffins at your door too. The showers are clean and spacious. If you call a cab make sure you don't call Island cab, they won't show up to pick you up and don't answer the phone. Finally we did reach a company called Max's who was very friendly but took quite along time to find out where the visitor center was. Local restaurant adjecent has local music that is a special treat too.

“Top Notch Marina - Best Staff Anywhere!”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I need to start by stating that I do not work for Morningstar nor am I being compensated for this review. You may wonder because I have nothing but good to say about Morningstar at Goldens Isles or Golden Isles Marina (GIM) as it used to be called.

GIM has a long history of providing service to the boaters of St. Simon's Island and surrounding areas. My wife and I have kept our 30' sailboat there for a total of 6 years out of the past 12 years. The facility has excellent floating wood docks and has the best manager, office staff, and dock masters in the business. Service is always provided with a friendly attitude and there is no need that goes unfilled.

With the marina's location just off the ICW and with deep water access from the ocean it is very convenient for long-term and transient dockage. Morningstar Marina also has a large dry storage facility. And they provide a complementary car for shopping or sightseeing.

There is a coin operated laundry facility, hair saloon, ship chandlery, and restaurant/bar conveniently located on the property. A West Marine is located just off the causeway in nearby Brunswick.

Whether you plan to visit or stay longer you will not be disappointed with Morningstar Marina at Golden Isles.

“Cap Fendig's Sunset Dolphin Tour”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Our family of 6 went on the tour tonight and I have to say it was an incredible value for everything you get. For $20 per person we got an amazing boat ride, saw numerous dolphins right by the boat, cruised alongside a world famous golf course and light house, saw an intriguing bird sanctuary, 3 cargo ships carrying cars (which blew their horns for us!) and last but not least a breathtaking sunset!

We would recommend this attraction to anyone and will do so in the future. The Cap and his wife were warm, welcoming, funny, full of life, and also interesting facts about the islands and mainland. Can't wait to go again!!!
