Reviews for Brooklyn Marina
Nice little club, 2016-08-01
Captain: , York, ME (1971)

We called before coming, and were fortunate to have someone answer and tell us there was room on the dock, just come in. Nobody around when we arrived, but the clubhouse was unlocked and we knew to look for the sign-up book and donation box. Several friendly members were around and willing to chat and answer any questions. All in all, a good overnight stop.

Quiet, well protected 3-1/2 star, 2016-07-13
Captain: , Freeport, ME (608)

One long visitors' dock, with about 500 feet of space (counting both sides). Two power pedestals at roughly the 1/3 points with multiple 30A outlets. Marina was basic, but clean. Friendly kids showed us the "donation" box ($35CDN) for us to drop our money into. Very friendly folks - we were there on a Wednesday, so not too many around.

There is nothing here in Brooklyn. Liverpool may have more to offer - we just stopped overnight - but is 2-1/2 miles by cab away. We didn't explore, just crashed for the night.

Nobody was around at the Club when we arrived at 5PM in early June, but the clubhouse was open. The facilities are somewhat rustic, but the harbor is well-sheltered, if unscenic.

We always stop here, 2014-08-07

It was our good fortune to find this place on our 1st trip to Nova Scotia. As we arrived so did a club member to take our lines. Then on our way to the clubhouse she said she had just taken visiting sailors to town for diesel and reprovisioning; she offered her van for us to use. We said "isn't that dangerous, you don't know us" she grined and said "then you'll have my van and I'll have your boat". This has been both our entry and departure port on 3 trips thus far. My rating discounts the paper mill and other negatives they are far out weighed by the hospitalty.

They immediately became our new best friends. They had a Vonage (VOIP) phone with free US access and gave us acess to it. On one trip a hurricane threatened and we worried if the mooring would hold our 45 foot Sabre, Moondance, under the conditions. A club member dropped a VERY beefy mooring for us and refused any payment. We often ate at the club both for hamburgers and for the weekly sit down dinners - delicious and reasonably priced. Once we asked where to buy fresh fish and were directed to a pickup parked at a gas station. We wondered but our trust was justified. On another trip we arrived with a problem: our water pump had failed when we took some water in the bilge during our crossing and it gave the pump a thorough washing. We mentioned it to a club member and he said "you must see (name lost my senior moment)"; we mentioed it again to another a got the same response. When we met the gentleman, a man of considerable girth, he crawled around our boat analyzing, took a trip to his elaborate home workshop, returned with a spare part, and FIXED IT. He refused payment for his 1/2 days work.

Hospitality is a Nova Scotia value and here in Brooklyn it is manifest.

Not very scenic, 2014-06-14
Captain: , Portland, Maine (845)

We came in only to find no one around. Could not raise them on the radio or cell phone. Left a message and received no return call. Once we were in the small shallow harbor that is dominated by a very large paper mill and possibly a power plant further in we decided not worth our effort . Unfortunately it would have been nice to meet the friendly folks that are reported to be here. We continued on instead to Lahave.

Brookland Marina, 2013-09-15
Captain: , Wrightsville beach nc (180)

Neat little place to stay. Came right into the harbor in fog then it lifted 100 meters from the dock. Easy to enter harbor in fog. Club members made us real welcome and one lent us a BMW to use for the day. 30amp power.

Very friendly, 2013-09-14
Captain: , Margaret (10)

Was treated wonderfully, everyone so friendly and helpful. Steve took us to fill our cans and groceries, Paul super helpful also gave us rides. I recommend this to everyone. Friendly chat and helpful advice . Can't thank you enough!

Like staying at a good friend's home, 2013-06-26
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (3022)

I think we were offered rides to town 5 different times (by different people). There is only one shower, but it may be the best appointed shower I have ever been in, in a Marina. Great town; we happened to arrive on the last day of Privateer Days, and enjoyed the free music in the dowtown park. We MISSED the log rolling, though!

Well protected with very friendly and accommodating people, 2011-07-30

The club is all volunteer staffed. They are very friendly and helpful and go out of their way to meet visitor needs.

Great Little Club, 2011-03-18
Captain: , Halifax, Nova Scotia (253)

I've enjoyed staying at Brooklyn Marina a couple of times. Very nice marinas and super friendly people. They really try hard. They'll even drive you in to town and back for groceries or to fill jerry cans. Wayne makes the best comfort food around in the little canteen in the back. Nicely protected from almost any breeze. I do have to mention the pulp and paper plant across from the club. When there is a ship loading it can be a little noisy but the live entertainment at the club generally drains it out. I'll be back.
