Reviews for Charlie's Marina
baaaaaaaad marina, 2010-07-14
Captain: , Grand Haven (100)

worst marina I've ever stayed in. Over priced with no customer service. Owner saw one of my party having problems in an unmarked shallow area in the marina that she sent him to, when asked the next day about the shallow area, her response, " I saw you having problems, I grabbed a bottle of wine & went and hid." goose droppings every where on the docks, save your self an awful experiece and find a different place to stay



NEVER AGAIN, 2010-07-11
Captain: , grand haven (10)

AS MY 3 FRIENDS AND I APROACHED THE DOCKS AT CHARLIES
MARINA WE WERE TOLD TO STAY CLOSE TO THE DOCKS, BUT HOW CLOSE WASNT DEFINED BY THE MARINA OPERATOR. SO I TOOK MY 32' IN FIRST AND KEPT A LITTLE MORE THAN MY BOATS WIDTH (ABOUT 14-15') FROM THE PILINGS. WHAT WE WERENT TOLD WAS, THERE WERE A PILE OF LOGS ABOUT 25-28' OUT FROM THE PILINGS IN ABOUT 2-3' OF WATER. SURE ENOUGH, MY PROPS GROUND TO A HALT, WHICH STALLED MY ENGINES JUST AS I WAS PIVOTING. IT TOOK MY BUDDY AND HIS 28' SEA RAY ABOUT 45 MIN'S TO HAUL ME OUT OF THERE. MY BOAT HAS A 34" DRAFT SO I WAS HUNG UP GOOD. ONCE THE MARINA OPERATOR CALLED MY BUDDY BACK TO TELL HIM I DIDNT STAY CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE DOCKS, WE SAT AND WAITED FOR HELP WITH THIS MESS....SHE DIDNT SEND ANY.
OTHER BOATERS FROM THE MARINA GUIDED ME TO ANOTHER DOCK DOWN THE CHANNEL IN DEEPER WATER. I HAD SOME
MANUEVERABILITY BUT THERE WAS NOW VIBRATION. ONCE
WE ALL FOUND SPOTS IN THIS DANGEROUS FACILITY, WE JUST FELT WE WOULD STAY THE ONE NITE AND MOVE IN THE AM.
ONCE WE WENT IN TO PAY HER, I ASKED HER WHY SHE DIDNT TELL US ABOUT THE LOGS AND ALL SHE SAID WAS "I TOLD YOU TO STAY CLOSE TO THE DOCKS" SHE ACTUALLY GOT A REAL KICK OUT OF MY PERIL...EVEN CHUCKLED ABOUT IT AS SHE TOOK MY MONEY. SHE OFFERED LOTS OF EXCUSES AS TO HOW I BLEW IT BUT THERE WAS NO APOLOGY. JUST A SMILE AS SHE TOOK MY 45.00. AFTER I PAID AND MY BUDDIES DID THE SAME, I WAS TOLD SHE MENTIONED TO ONE OF THEM THAT AFTER SHE SAW ME GET HUNG UP, SHE GRABBED A BOTTLE OF WINE AND WENT AND HID. A REAL CHARMER THIS LADY WAS. SHE REALIZED WE WENT TO A DIFFERENT MARINA THAT NEXT MORNING AND EVEN CALLED THEM TO ASK IF I WAS BAD MOUTHING MY EXPERIENCE AT HER MARINA, WHICH I WASNT. AFTER HEARING THAT, I HOUGHT I WOULD RATE HER MARINA ON LINE....THIS IS IT. BE CAREFULL OUT THERE.
