Ivan is the bomb!, 2017-08-16
Captain: , Catawba Island, Ohio (426)

Aug 2017
We came back to visit in mid August of 2017, so the marina was in and operational. The docks are VERY nice, well maintained - they looked like new. Good shore power hookups along with water, VERY sheltered from all wind directions and a beautiful view. We arrived at 9:30 in the evening and Ivan met us and helped us tie up. Mary May was very helpful too - she even picked up a package for me in Gaspe that I had shipped ahead. Both are very gracious hosts and their facilities are well worth the stop going either way. This is definitely a hidden jewel on the Gaspe peninsula. There are also some quaint restaurants for dining and most facilities are within walking distance.

Ivan helped us get diesel - we stopped there around 10/14 and the docks were already out of the water and the marina was closed. He personally trucked us over to get diesel in jerry cans to fill up, then openend up the bath houses so we could shower. Great host, very friendly. We will be back!

Welcoming and Efficient, 2016-10-26
Captain: , Sandusky harbor (10)

Great stop for us as we ventured in a 49' sailboat from Montreal to Charlottetown. Ivan, the dock master opened the bathhouse after it was closed for the season, and went the extra mile to cart 6 Jerry cans of diesel back to the boat after the fuel pumps were closed. Refused offered cash tip, and expects bothers to help boaters.
Also, wonderful breakfast place nearby, within a short walk of the marina. Grocery also. Entire experience was just what we needed.

EXCELLENT STOP., 2016-09-06
Captain: , Boston (111)

We sailed in here from Riviere Madelaine and were greeted at the dock by very helpful staff. The faciity is modern and right downtown. We did get a ride to the nearby supermarket. Some smaller stores are within walking distance. The bath, showers and laundry here are top notch. Best that I have seen since the Marina in Quebec. The only downside was not having any gasoline available at the docks. We did take our 20 liter jerry cans to the local gas station. The seafood available at this large fishing port is the best. We found excellent shrimp and cod at the local market.

wonderful stopover, 2016-07-29
Captain: , Rockland, ME (90)

A nice little harbor, very friendly staff, one of them took us to a gas station so we could fill our propane tank. Two fish markets right on the dock, can't get fresher than that! Good prices too. Clean washrooms and showers. Laundry also available.

A real fishing port, but with yachtie amenities, 2016-07-01
Captain: , York, ME (1971)

The Club Nortique Forillon is at the far end of the inner harbor, well protected. The docks and power posts are like new. The facility has clean laundry (2 each, washer & dryer, $2 each) heads and showers. They'll give you a key for off-hours access. The free WiFi is reliable with good signal strength on the docks (ask for the password.) There's also a common room with a small galley, tables and chairs.

The slips are wide and open to the harbor, so even though they're only about 30 feet long, longer boats can hang out without impacting access for others. The long face dock would also be an easy-in and easy-out, but a longer walk from shore.

This is the first active fishing port we've encountered coming down the St. Lawrence from Quebec City. There were draggers, crabbers and shrimpers coming and going, and boats and gear everywhere being maintained and repaired.

There's an auto parts store and large ACE hardware store just steps from the marina office. And of course, a fish market. There's a very traditional looking fisherman's bar close by, complete with pool table, that would be worth a visit just for the ambience. Rubber boots would be acceptable, if you're wondering about the dress code.

Although we didn't anchor, the anchorage in the outer harbor also looks great; plenty of room for lots of boats, and you can choose your spot based on the prevailing winds, since there's protection from any wind somewhere in the basin.

Had a great experience here, 2015-07-31
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2870)

The staff were wonderful, friendly and welcoming, with liimited English. The fishing fleet itself is very neat to watch. The showers and baths were new and wonderful, as were the docks and the power. The town is for the working people here and not touristy in the least.

Good Stop and People, 2014-07-26
Captain: , Corpus Christi, TX (732)

Protected deep harbor, NEW floating docks with great power, very friendly and helpful manager. Grocery, etc. about 1/4 mile.

Busy but quiet, 2013-04-17
Captain: , Oka, Quebec (260)

The fishing port is very busy but the Club Nautique is very quiet. In summer, they had live music near the ClubHouse once or twice a week.
Not a lot of services in town but it's a good alternative if you don't want to go to Gaspé. Rent a car and visit Forillon. The marina is safe and very well protected.
The bathrooms and showers are GREAT ( 11/10 ).

Great place along this coast, 2013-01-31
Captain: , Gloucester, MA (807)

Very well protected, great people, nice town. Fuel is available but needs to be ordered in advance and trucked in.

Very well protected marina, 2011-10-20
Captain: , Solomons, MD (1915)

This is an active fishing harbor. Marina sits farther inside the basin. Small town with basic services available. Staff is friendly and helpful. Plenty of water alongside long docks; we draw 4'10".

Great Protection, 2011-08-09
Captain: , Sodus Point, NY (718)

Loved it here. We stopped for 2 nights after sailing in heavy winds and seas. We were able to sail into the harbor and drop the sail with wave protection. The yacht club is located behind large breakwalls, which block nearly all of the wind at the boats. Makes it easy docking. They did not speak much English here, but made every effort and drove us to and from a local restaurant. Primary docks are 30' long, but if you need more, there is a long wall on the west side of the basin. Facilities are immaculate. Well stocked grocery store and fresh fish market a short walk away.

Home to large commercial fleet, 2010-07-23
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (1323)

Basin is home to a large fishing fleet, many repair facilities as a result. Fresh fish, interesting place to visit. The smell can be strong, but that's part of the experience! Staff was friendly, spoke OK english. Only 20 amp power typical of many we saw, so didn't even attempt to connect. Quiet, protected, easy approach no depth issues.

Small marina next to commercial fishing fleet. Coast guard have boats there. Short walk for groceries or restaurant. Close to marine supplies and repairs. No fuel at marina except for some diesel that they sell in jerry cans.
