Reviews for Big Basin Marina
Perfectly Fine for Overnight, 2014-09-28
Captain: , Everett, Washington (824)

We stayed here on a Saturday night in mid-September to get out on an approaching severe weather storm. No answer on the VHF or by phone and were directed to an open sip by other users. Though the slip was too short for us, a 30 footer, it was perfectly adequate. This is a "working person's marina" who are friendly, down-to-earth and helpful. Paid .75 a foot, in an envelope left in a box in the office. The nearby restuarant/bar is a biker bar. Little services and next to the I-55 bridge but the noise was acceptable. Marina is probably not suitable for boats over 30 feet.
