Reviews for Bois Blanc Island Marina
Small and Simple, 2014-05-03

Township marina and ferry dock with paved parking served by dirt roads. Protected by breakwater. Slips and floating dock serve boats up to about 35 feet but draft is limited. Park-style bathrooms, water and electrcity. Restaurant and store 1/4 mile west on road. Private light on breakwater and large flag on pole in parking lot from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Natives are friendly.

Not accessible for medium to deep draft boats. This is where the ferries dock and some fisherman or locals.
