Reviews for Bruce Mines Marina
Great little town, 2016-08-15
Captain: , St. Joseph Island, Ontario (189)

Nice marina, dining, grocery and ice cream close by. Don't miss a trip to "Bobbers" restaurant-great food at very reasonable prices.

Friendly and quiet - oh so quiet, 2016-08-13
Captain: , Pittsburgh (513)

The staff at the Marina are very capable and friendly helping however best they can. The Marina it self is basic but has power and waster and plenty of water. Diesel and gas are available .
Not a lot to do unless you spend a full day there when there are Museums to visit telling the history of he town. Worth a visit

Classic small town hospitality on the best part of the North Channel!, 2015-12-01
Captain: , Bruce Mines Ont (47)

Beautiful, underutilized marina attended by excellent staff, quiet, friendly town, great docks. Bruce Mines is unusual in that all the amentities are right on the waterfront, making it an excellent spot to stop for provisions or a day trip. One of the best kept secrets on the North Channel and a huge relief from high dock and fuel prices! But, consider this review with caution, I loved the place so much after staying here, that I moved here! (and Im loving it!)

Nice Town!, 2013-08-17
Captain: , Santa Cruz (243)

A good spot to stop overnight. Easy entrance, clean restrooms, very convenient to restaurants, laundry, and store. Call ahead to make sure they have room.
