Reviews for Alibi Marina
Very overcrowded, 2016-09-21
Captain: , Chicago (10)

Marina said they'd be there to catch our lines and show us our dock but they weren't. A fellow boater showed us where our slip was. The staff person was not very professional.
I rode my bike all over downtown looking for some kind of a market and found one with very poor selection and elevated prices. I did find a nice library with free wifi.

Fish Creek is a must see., 2016-06-15
Captain: , Huntington Harbour, CA (337)

Rate for 2016 is $2.10 per foot. Fish Creek is one of the most popular stops in Door County. Easy access to town from the marina. There are 2 parts of the marina. Usually transiets enter through the "smaller" opening which is more exposed to winds then the other part of the marina. It's preferable to get a slip in the part of the marina with the "larger" opening. In town recommend to do a traditional Fish Boil. We were happy with the Fish Boil at The White Gull Inn, they also do one at Pelltier's. Also, at White Gull Inn is the stuffed cherry french toast. YUM.

Tight manuvering and they pack you in, Great town to visit, 2015-07-27
Captain: , Chicago, Racine, Fish Creek,Wi (3038)

If the wind is strong out of the N or NW this is not a good place to be. All other directions are good. This is a great small town to visit. The town is quaint and interesting. Many very good places to eat, shop & get Ice cream. It is a very nice setting and sunsets are beautiful. But this marina is all about making money so they pack you in to get every dollar.

nice marina, 2013-07-15
Captain: , Charlevoix, MI (10)

Nice marina. A little expensive at $2 per foot. Great town. It is a little tight, but not to tight. Nice showers and facility.

Loved the town!, 2013-07-10
Captain: , St. Paul,MN (55)

Wonderful shopping in town. Marina does not have fuel, but the town dock next door does. Pumpout at the dock ($15.00), but they don't pump out on weekends. Close to park for dog walking and sitting.

Nice marina close to town, 2013-02-06
Captain: , Lakeside Yacht Club (250)

This marina fills up so make reservations early. You may also find yourself blocked in at certain slips due to 2 or 3 boats in line. tight quarters for docks. Fantastic town. Check the cancleation policy. Very strict. They wouldn't let us use a reservation that was paid by a boat that couldn't mke it

Favorite marina of the admiral., 2012-10-24
Captain: , Green Bay, WI (400)

Stayed 1 or more nights 3 times this season. Staff exceptionally helpful and knowledgeable. Somewhat outdated baths and very high step up to top of wall dock only cons but awesome place to be. We'll keep going back many more times.

Two-night stay, 2012-09-11
Captain: , Milwaukee, WI (146)

After labor day, no advanced reservations (just called that morning) and very convenient do downtown shops/restaurants. As others have indicated, this is a very compact marina. We are a 35 foot sailboat and they put us against the north seawall without difficulty; however, any larger would have a difficult time getting around without a bow thruster. We were a little taken aback at the after Labor Day mid-week rate of $2 per foot but then, again, it is Door County.

2nd best marina in Door County!, 2011-10-28
Captain: , Milwaukee (121)

I say 2nd best because the best clearly is CenterPointe Marina in Sturgeon Bay!

What makes Alibi Dock a great marina is not the marginal facilities with minimal amenities (if any), but rather it is the location. Fish Creek is a great town to visit while cruising Door County.

The staff is friendly and accomodating and I highly recommend an annual visit to this marina.

The philosophy of this small marina is to see how many boat they can cram in., 2011-09-08
Captain: , Traverse City (20)

We made reservations well in advance asking for and being told that we would be %u201Cinside%u201D the marina. Day of our arrival we were again told in the morning that we would be %u201Cinside%u201D. We were placed on the outside of their seawall with a 15knt NE wind blowing directly on us all night. Made reservations for two nights but left about 18 hours after we arrived. We suspected that they put us out there as a joke because we were so specific about being inside. The marina facilities are nothing special. The Marina is so congested that we actually had no more than 15 feet from our starboard side to the stern of the boat across from us. Thank god we left first. That 15 feet was the fairway . Boats were getting past us with no more than a foot to spare on either side Thank god most captains were sober. . I hate to think of the number of times boats have been damaged here. Lots of drinking here. The town is a no big deal tourist trap, kind of like Niagara Falls. Skip this place and go to Egg Harbor.

Best marina in Door County!, 2011-09-08
Captain: , Newport RI. (10)

The Alibi marina is the largest marina in northern Door County and has 25 reservable transient slips. Online reservations are effortless and it staff, grounds, amenities and location are hands down the best in the area. 1/2 block walk to downtown Fish Creek, adjacent to Peninsula State Park, golfing privledges etc...What more could you ask for?

Will make it work, 2011-08-20
Captain: , Cheboygan, MI (80)

Need reservations, especially on weekends. On 2 day notice Don the Harbor Master made Friday/Sat night happen!! Excellent staff and facilities. Lots of big boats and fairways are narrow, suggest bumpers on both sides of your boat.

Alibi Dock, 2011-05-27
Captain: , Fish Creek (102)

Great slips, Great location near groceries, Bars and Restaurants. Bathroom facilities marginal

Nice marina in a great village, 2010-08-09
Captain: , Milwaukee Yacht Club (90)

The staff at Alibi was excellent, the bathrooms clean and it was nice that they provide grills/picnic tables for all to use. The free wifi and the great cruising/anchorages that are close by make Alibi/Fish Creek a home run.

Excellent marina in the center of town, 2010-07-25
Captain: , Palm Coast (792)

Well maintained modern marina with first-rate facilities. Located only one block from town and grocery store. Wi-fi at docks. Transit dock is side tie but you may find your boat in a different spot on that dock if they are making space for new arrivals.

Lots of shopping and dining available in town. The docks are full of "gawkers" in high season. If you are a pie person do not miss Sweetie Pies available baked or frozen.

Alibi Marina Hospitality, 2009-03-20
Captain: , Waukegan, IL. (50)

Summer of 2008 was the first time in many years that Jodi M has visited Door County. Our cruising grounds are usually North Channel and Georgian Bay. Our delight at finding Alibi and it's most gracious HarborMaster Marsha Wilson was a wonderful welcome to the area. Though very crowded during the "high season", we were greeted warmly by a very helpful staff.

great town, 2008-12-29
Captain: , Little Traverse Bay (243)

fish creek is my favorite spot in door county. however, alibi staff was a bit standoffish, but the marina was very nice and clean.

The Flavor of Door County, 2007-11-16
Captain: , Punta Gorda. FL (360)

Agree, an excellent marina. Very difficult to get transient space weekends in season. Fish Creek is awash in tourist crowds all summer. Great sailing waters. Groceries a major hike up the road. No repair or marine supplies.

Alibi Dock, 2007-07-06
Captain: , Sturgeon Bay, WI (59)

An excellent transient Marina. Pump out only. Gas but no diesel available at Fish Creek Town Dock adjoining.
