Reviews for Auke Bay (Statter) - Juneau Public Harbor
Be Flexible and Keep your expectations low, 2017-07-28
Captain: , Cruising (3310)

Harbors in SE Alaska are municipal, working harbors - not marinas or yacht clubs. The outer floats in this harbor are unassigned - you have to look for a spot, and you don't usually get help. That's just the way it's run. There are a lot of whale watching boats that take up dock space, but if you come in mid-morning or mid-afternoon when they're out - chances are much better. If you're unlucky enough to catch the harbor when a seiner or gillnet fishery has just closed for a few days - it can be absolutely packed, but if you arrive when a fishery has just opened there's plenty of space. It's just the way things are.
Power is located at the intersections of the docks - which can be a good distance from where you tie up, so be prepared to string 100' of cable if you end up far from the pole. There are only so many sockets in each power pole - you may find the pole is full. We have occasionally moved to a different spot to get the power we needed. Note that power poles on the main float coming from the land are 20amp. Better power is found on the long C and D floats.
However, the access to the bus system is very convenient- to get downtown, or to Costco, Fred Meyer, etc. Hot Bites has good burger-type food and shakes right by the harbormaster office, the Thai, Gonzo's waffle place, and the pub (with some Mexican food) are a short walk across the parking lot.

Auke Bay - Limited moorage available, 2016-07-02
Captain: , Boise, Idaho (10)

In 2015 they only take reservations for vessels over 65'. This makes getting any space at the dock very difficult for boats over 45', The staff was not helpful at all in getting moorage for a 50' boat. One has to anchor out and dingy in and keep watching for a space to free up. In 8 days we never found any possibility of fitting in a 50' boat with power.
The docks only have power available at the head of each dock, so unless you have a very long cord you can't reach the power unless you find space at the head of the dock.
Anchoring near the marina is possible in quite deep water but the wake from boats and the ferry keeps you rolling contantly during the day and evening, but it not as bad during the night time hours. There are a couple of near shore anchoring possibilities a fair distance from the marina.
The facilities are great if you can get a space, but don't count on it. There is good hiking nearby too. Busses run frequently and drivers are very helpful in getting around.

No reason to stay here, 2015-07-22
Captain: , Longboat Key, FL (1089)

This is one of the craziest dockage operations I've ever been too. Actually, it is free-for-all, get what you can when you can, tie-up, raft-up, no reservation public dock. Other than to refuel (which can also be crazy busy), I suggest you stay somewhere else!

Ugh! Avoid if Possible, 2015-07-16
Captain: , Bend, OR (70)

I pretty much have to agree with Captain Nelson and the other reviews. This is not a happy place to tie up! The outside of the breakwater transient area is a short period roller coaster ride from early morning until midnight. It did calm down some at midnight and we were able to sleep. There were a couple of 200' megayachts that seemed ok but for smaller boats it was very unpleasant. The inside of the breakwater, if there is space there, is somewhat better than the outside but still unpleasant.

Much better to go the extra miles into Juneau and stay at Aurora or Harris or even across the channel in Douglas. The transient slips are first come first serve and the harbormaster's assistance usually consists of 'go see what you can find.'

Little choice, no bargin, 2015-07-08
Captain: , Long Beach (983)

Here first week of June 2015. No dockage except on the breakwater float, due to the rebuilding of the slips at Aurora in Juneau all the float are filled with the local small boats. So the only area is the reservation floating breakwater. The floating breakwater is of poor design as the surface is low to the water. The rest of the dockage is normal Alaskan structure, but the electric service looks subpar, if you use more than 30A. There was a good cell data service, no WiFi pay or otherwise available on the dock. If on the outer side the wakes from almost constant small boat and tour boat traffic will keep you rolling. With the dock so low it is easy to roll a fender out and have the boat come in contact with the dock. All this is charged at a extra premium price for no electric, water outlet so poor spacing, again if on the outside you will start the hose with a missing fifteen feet. Try not to be assigned to the outside. Our experience here killed any plans, expect to get off the dock. Had planned to do some local touring, just did not feel the boat was safe (on the outside). There just does not appear to be enough dockage for the locals. This does not look likely to be solved as the docks in Aurora come on line. You are pretty much forced to use and pay the reservation rates just to get the little leftover space. The ten day limit is a joke as the local boats only have to be out six hours to get another ten days. This is just a poor marina for transit vessels.

Busy Hodge Podge, 2015-07-03
Captain: , Kirkland, WA (4478)

This is a busy harbor in the summer with boats of every size. Many sport fishing boats and tour excursion boats. The configuration of the transient dock space makes for rather inefficient use of the space and difficult to find a space. Shorepower is very limited with connections that may require 2 or 3 cables to reach and no shorepower on the breakwater. Transient space is on the C, D, and breakwater docks. This harbor is located north of Juneau with better access to points north but the harbors in Juneau and Douglas are better for access to Juneau. The harbor can be rolly with boat wakes even though there is a speed limit in the harbor and in the bay just outside of the harbor. Huge rollers occasionally come thru the marina very unexpectedly. This is my least favorite marina in all of SE Alaska, to be avoided if possible.

Long distance to the city, 2014-01-06
Captain: , Algonac, MI (1659)

This facility is crowded, busy and a long distance to the city. If you are interested in touring Juneau, Id suggest stayin at the Aurora or Harris Harbor. Decent bathrooms and showers. Small store and restaurant nearby. Everything else will require a car or bus ride.

Auke Bay: The best and friendliest marina for the Juneau Area, 2012-11-03
Captain: , Seattle (21031)

This is a very busy harbor during the summer. The Harbormaster will do all he can to find a spot for you. Reservations are accepted only if your vessel is 50ft or greater. Auke Harbor is away from the cruise ship docks in downtown Juneau. It is also the closest Harbor to the airport.
Shopping is near by and even a Costco is "just around the corner" if you need to stock your larder to the gills.
All tours can be arranged from here (including the most popular Mendenhall Glacier tour and flyovers of the Juneau icefields.
This is an Alaskan friendly enviornment and if there is something you can't find or a service you need, just ask. We have never heard of a request going unfulfilled.

PUblic transportation available, PO around corner, laundry, restaurants, 2011-01-02
Captain: , Seattle (60)

Three city bus routes serve Auke Bay, #3 & #4, which run reverse loops to UofA SE, and an hourly express bus from downtown that stops at the airport. A post office is on the road by the shore, get General Delivery there. A Laundry, restaurant and U of A SE coffee shop across the street.

Moorage is a race for empty slips at certain times.

The only dock for transient moorage, 2010-10-12
Captain: , Bellingham, WA (364)

This moorage facility is located 12 miles to the north of Juneau. The harbor is connected to town by road. The facilities provides 6,000' of transient moorage for boats up to 200' in length. Moorage is on a first-come, first-served basis. Register at the Harbor Master's office (located at the head of the floats) to get current rules and regulations for transient moorage. The Length of stay varies, and you could be cited for over-staying. Water, showers, and pump-out are available. Showers and carts are found at the Harbor Master's office (hours are 8:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. in May but are usually extended later in the summer.) There is a public grid.
