Reviews for Buck's Marina
Hospitality plus, 2014-07-19
Captain: , Naples, FL (1096)

The marina is owned and maintained by the Municipality of Wawa and regretably with the decline in their tax base of the years the funds do no seem to be there to keep the docks maintained. They are literally sinking into the water. Inspite of this, we received an incredible welcome and assistance from the dockmaster and owner of the adjacent marine store and boatyard.

The inlet is buoyed all the way but the trick is to find out if the first marker is to be kept on your port and starboard. Brad Buck sent his son to guide us through the inlet. The lowest we saw was 6 ft.

The pumpout was very reasonable and innovative. It was a design that permitted water to be pumped into the tank for a flush without removing the hose. Every pumpout facility should have this .

We were invited to join the Buck's for lunch at the nearby diner and later we were given a ride to town and back for groceries at the Value-mart. There is a town bus that works on demand but it only runs during the week and not late in the afternoon.

On the town side of the marina are separate ladies and men showers and restrooms. There is one older washer and dryer in the same building but separate room. The marine store is well stocked with products that the owners know and recommend.

We were able to get a good Rogers cellular signal as well as unsecured wifi.

Buck's Marina is one of the few full-service marina's on the Canadian north shore. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and will go above and beyond to help any boater who needs assistance.
