Reviews for Battery Park Marina
bad fuel no ownership, 2016-10-27
Captain: , Sandusky, OH (370)

We pulled in to top off our diesel while doing so the fuel pumps stopped! I asked the problem and the reply was "we are out of fuel" I realized we had sucked the tanks dry and pulled all the junk off the bottom and into my system. The manager from battery Park called me back after my complaint that we were having to have the fuel pumped out and tanks scrubbed and fuel polished She assured me not their problem! We are full time live aboard boaters and log 800-1000 hrs per year and up till then no fuel issues. Since my fill up I now have spent $1100 for polishing and I am currently changing the Racors daily if not sooner. This along with a mechanic to clean out the fuel lines again another $800 to "not their problem." The fuel brand is Valvetech which also has not responded to 2 emails This is the first negative review I have posted caveat emptor!

Freindly Staff, 2016-08-03

The staff is fantastic and helpful!!! AND the cleanist showers and restrooms I have ever seen.

Peaceful and protected, 2015-08-14
Captain: , Brookings (308)

Nice quiet marina. Why doesn't the laundry stay open in the evening for the boaters use? Need more info on island cruising.

crowded fuel dock, good service, 2014-09-15
Captain: , Sandusky, Ohio (10)

The fuel dock was crowded, but that's to be expected since it's the end of the season. There is one diesel pump and you have to dock at the end of the pier to use it because the hose won't go too far. The service was great. Two attendants were there to help with docking. Only one boat can fuel up at a time because engaging one diesel nozzle cuts the other one off. The head pumpout doesn't have much suction so takes a long time, but it worked well enough for our 20 tank. Paid 4:30/gallon for diesel. Would still very much recommend for fueling/pumpout.

It would be nice if pilings were on both sides if the pier. They are only on the north side.

Best in the Bay, 2013-01-29
Captain: , Sandusky (100)

Easy access transient slips, restaurant on site and friendly people. More powerboats than sailors.

Great service, a clean and secure facility, 2012-05-09
Captain: , Midland Ontario (660)

This marina shows itself as a well kept and well run marina. The facilities are clean and 24 hour security is provided as well as secure access gates. I would come back here any time.

fuel stop for us, 2012-03-02
Captain: , Olcott, NY (2536)

A very easy enter, helpful staff, easy departure full service marina.
Fuel prices were inline with others in the area.

Terrific Operation, 2011-09-05
Captain: , Channel Islands, California (1149)

The folks in charge at this place really know how to run a marina. The acess is easy, and from the folks who are at the fuel dock, to the people in the office, this is a first rate operation.

rather stay here than Cedar point, 2011-08-09
Captain: , Detroit (720)

Did a trip to the area and preferred the 2 stints a spent an Battery Park much more than the time at the Cedar Point marina. Facility is spotless, nice park next door, access to downtown Sandusky. Clean bathrooms. Clean docks, in solid shape, if a bit close to each other.

A Great place to stay, 2010-12-14
Captain: , Battery Park Marina (10)

Home Port, 2007-06-28
Captain: , Sandusky, OH (2)

Sandusky Bay is one of our favorite places to boat. If the main lake is rough we can always stay inside the bay. Our local dealer had recommended Battery Park and we been there since. The docks are well marked. The restrooms are clean and modern having Corian counterops and plenty of showers. Damon's Restaurant is above the Marina offices and overlooks the harbor. Pete, the Harbor Master, is extremely knowledgeable and accomodating. In conjunction with Battery Park Marine Services, they offer a professional seamless program at competative prices.
