Reviews for Bakers Bay Marina
Another failed mega yacht marina, 2015-05-28
Captain: , Key West, Florida (256)

A few big boats, lots of dirt but none actually being pushed around. Heard it costs 4 million for a lot and that doesn't include a house. Makes no difference though because they have taken the Florida suburbs and recreated it here... who wants to pay 4+ million for a look-alike house in the suburbs with your neighbor 25 feet away and an HOA breathing down your back? No Thanks... too many other great homes for sale with much more privacy and no HOA.



No transients permitted, 2015-05-19

We called April 28 2015 and we were told that they no oonger accept transients, at all. The marina is now 100% private, must be a member or own property in the gated community in order to use marina.



Embarrassing, 2015-02-03
Captain: , Jersey City (72)

if you want to dock in the middle of a construction site, pay $6 per foot and get nothing in return, head to Bakers bay. i rarely write reviews but this one pissed me off.



now Private, 2014-05-27
Captain: , Ft Myers, Florida (1663)

Private mega yacht marina. Only the richest of the rich. Can not enter via golf cart either. We drove our dingy through the Marina, Wow. Mega yacht after mega yacht. The 70!ft sport fishers were like dingy's. No problem driving dingy through. Would not let our rented golf cart in. Fanciest marina and condo resort we have ever seen anywhere. Part of a world wide chain of similar resorts.800 Bahamians employed on site mostly construction which is underway. Amazing marina that was built out as well as docks for the development lots.



Expensive But Excellent Marina, 2014-03-31
Captain: , St. Louis, MO (970)

This amazing marina is the heart of a first class, immense residential real estate developement that appears to be progressing apace with lots of new consruction. The marina, however only held a few boats during our visit in late March.

From the well marked and deep entry channel to the seriously constructed fixed docks, everthing here is first class and beautifully executed. Two friendly dock hands expertly handled our lines at our berth near the "Marina Village". The docks are higher than others and might require some climbing skills at a minus tide.

Marina guests are invited to enjoy the marina area which currently includes a clothing shop and a small, excellent cafe-style restaurant which serves three meals daily by a happy and efficient staff. The food from a varied menu ranks as some of the best we experienced in the Abacos and was quite resonably priced.

The marina arranged for a golf car for us to use driving less than 15 minutes to the Settlement where everone on Great Guana visits Nippers or Grabbers for libations.

A pleasant experience overall.



Very nice... if you like the Ritz, 2014-03-02
Captain: , Palm Beach, FL (341)

we were on our way to Hopetown when we had a pop up storm barreling down on us. We ducked in Bakers Bay and got a slip. Everyone was friendly. We had lunch at one of the restaurants out of the rain. we untied and took off. No charge for a couple of hours of dockage.

We found it convenient, safe and friendly, so we went back another day, got a slip, rented a golf cart, and went down to Nipper's for the afternoon. It was a nice scenic 15-minute ride. Again no charge for the slip.

The grounds are beautiful but honestly I don't go to the Bahamas to hang out at the Ritz or the Breakers. If you want be in Gulf Stream, stay in Gulf Stream!



Nice new clean upscale marina, 2014-01-27
Captain: , north kingstown (341)

had easy time getting in... great help from dockhands even for a rentamaran.. yes it's pricey but aren't you on vacation... great view of ocean beach just over the dune... large facility not full built but new and nice.. The food was excellent.. lunch.. grouper rueben different and tasty..You've got to go to the Southern Buffet...As dockhands suggest get reservation... each dish was better than the next.. Shrimp and grits, pulled pork, fried chicken, best potato salad ever... plus desert... Best food in the Bahamas



A private club really, 2013-04-27
Captain: , Dallas, TX (726)

Stopped for a one night stay. Learned that developers wanted a private club but the government wouldnt allow it unless it was open to the public. Solution, charge 4x normal dockage for the area, restrict access to ameneties and the result is a mostly private marina. The staff was very friendly and helpful, had a great time at the bar on the dock waiting for delivery of the rental golf carts. Traveled on golf carts to Nippers for more drinks and a late lunch/early dinner and that was pretty much our $500.00+ experience. The admiral got to check Bakers Bay off her list so I guess it was worth it.



Nice But Pricey, 2012-07-23
Captain: , Sarasota, FL (130)

Didn't stay here but checked it out when we were at Orchid Bay. They wouldn't let us bring a camera in supposedly for the privacy of their well know guests who we never saw. We would consider staying here next time.



docks not much more, 2012-07-08
Captain: , ft myers beach (790)

we took our golf cart from Orchid Bay and checked out the marina.
pricey but should be no problems for the extreme yachts there.
Bar, small restaraunt, gift shop, gym and lots of store fronts available.
Shame the economy hurt this and others like those at West End.
Removed from rest of island with a beautiful beach.



Economy Affected, Trying, but Failing, 2012-03-24
Captain: , Isle of Palms, SC (311)

Huge design & infrastructure investment. Maintenance gamely attempted. Service clueless, but gamely trying. $4.00/ft nightly 'bare' dockage outrageous.



Baker's Bay Marina and Restaurant, 2011-03-10
Captain: , Sioux City, Iowa (50)

Pleasant place to eat but food and service can vary from good to very poor. We won't rush back, unless for social reasons



Best food in area, 2011-03-09
Captain: , Chicago Montrose (36)

As of our visit in April of 2010 the property was still being developed, but the marina, access, and services seemed mostly intact.

Yes, it's expensive. Yes, it's high end. And yes, it's not nearly as 'natural' as the rest of the chain, but it's a nice escape anyway. And to be fair, it's not all that much more expensive than a meal at Nippers.

Since the ownership change of Dolphin Beach, this is easily the best dining on Guana - and probably the entire Abacos. I would rate is as very good (on a scale of my hometown, Chicago). We had a fantastic time with drinks and appetizers on the patio, excellent service, and excellent dinners in the dining room. It was consistently a great escape/compliment from the rest of extremely casual Guana standbys. I LOVE the casual nature of Guana, but it's nice to escape it too.

All the docking services seemed to be intact, with several rather large yachts docked there in April 2010.



Great potential for large yachts but not really up and running, 2009-05-21
Captain: , Fort Lauderdale (1288)

Having read the hype in magazines and cruising guides, we called Bakers Bay Marina as we crossed Whale Cay Passage and asked if we could come in for a look. We received an immediate response with directions to take the marked channel in--we did so and found nothing less than 16 feet at mid-tide all the way into the marina. Other than the dredger working hard, there was only one boat in the "158 slip marina," though plenty of piers were in evidence. The dockmaster quoted a price of $2.00/foot and $0.47 per KWH for electricity, but the place is definitely a work in progress so we moved on. Great protection and terrific potential but simply not ready for business at this time.
