Reviews for Cobourg Marina
Essential stop over, 2015-12-15
Captain: , Toronto (482)

We didn't stay over night in Cobourg but stopped for brunch, fuel, charts and Gravol before carrying on down to the Murray Canal.

Cobourg is a proper port of refuge, it has geat docks, good facilities a beautiful down town, a fantastic beach and a well stocked chandlery/chart store.

I rate it so high because the town is beautiful, the facilities are good and it is such an important stop. The North shore of Lake Ontario between Toronto and the Murray has very few refuges except Cobourg.

Whether you are taking the outside route around Main Duck or the inside route through the Murray, you will want to stop in Cobourg to resupply.

New F and G docks since we were here last, 2015-07-30
Captain: , Rochester NY (310)

A really nice marina in a very nice town. We stayed on the new G dock which runs north and south from the shore. It has dual 30amp service at each dock. The docks are 40' long with about 40' between them. Lots of big boats on this dock. The F dock runs north and south to the east of G dock.

You can anchor in the basin or tie up to the government wharf on the West side of the peer. Though you will not be charged, you will not have shore power. Great Marina with great staff and facilities and close to shopping and restaurants.

Great Stopover- 2015, 2015-07-21
Captain: , Bronte Outer Harbour, Oakville, Ontario (137)

Marina is always well maintained. New Docks for G & F dock are excellent. Staff are friendly. Very short walk into a nice community with lots of shops and restaurants. Had dinner at Marca on the Wharf (Italian) and it was exceptional! Great food and service.

Enjoyable Cobourg Marina, 2014-09-07
Captain: , Toronto (10)

Great marina. Staff are helpful and pleasant. Easy walking distance to downtown (marine store bit of a hike). Grocery store probably needs a cab ride back. Docks are in great condition (only 30 amp service) at the new docks that we stayed at (G). And free coffee in the mornings. We stay there every year.

2014 Summer Update, 2014-08-18
Captain: , Mimico Cruising Club Toronto (35)

The wooden quay has been replaced with cement on the north side of the harbour. Harbour was being dredged when we were there in August.
Great staff, if you are on the outside of E dock and the wind is from the S or SW you will rock and roll.
Bikes are in good shape and free.
New restaurants on King Street - 92 Kiing St and El Camino - great food.
Holding is good at anchor but make sure you have chain.
Visit the Sifton-Cooke museum just west of the marina for a trip back in time and a 1/24th scale railroad setup (outside) showing the transportation of goods from Peterborough to Cobour Harbour.

Great spot, 2013-07-25
Captain: , Ottawa (20)

Very well run facility! We stayed at Cobourg Marina with our Cruisers MY 38' for 2 weeks and enjoyed the beach, restaurants, farmer's market, movie on the beach, the nature walks along the shoreline and the great view of the lake. One note, most slips only have one 30 amp hookup and we need either two 30's or one 50 amp which at the present time is not available. Perry and Soula

Cobourg Marina, 2012-08-30
Captain: , Alex Bay, NY (431)

Friendly and helpful staf...we cam in wi two 45 ft+ boats and they docked us on the wall...fueling station, good water..wonderful marina and town...many good restraurnts and bars, within a 2-3 block walking distance..very clean city...the restrooms were the cleanest I've ever been in--cant wait to go back...

Went back a 2nd. time in 2012--same great service and excellent facility, well run, professionally staffed

A Favourite Spot, 2012-04-19
Captain: , Mimico Cruising Club ON Canada (1210)

We always tie up along the wall. No water or hydro, but a nice spot non-the-less. The shower and laundry facility is very clean. A short walk to downtown with good bakeries, restaurants and things to do and see.

Favorite stopover, 2012-03-03
Captain: , Olcott, NY (2536)

Although you can run into the full problem here, we try and call ahead with a reservation. If not its anchor out or Port Hope.
Great facilities and wonderful downtown.
Cobourg's waterfront has gone through a lot of changes over the years.

Cobourg Marina, 2011-11-24
Captain: , Margaritaville (355)

Another well run and well maintained municipal effort.
A shrot stroll to good stores, restaurants and pubs downtown.
The problem is, many boaters are turned away due to not being big enough. That's what happened to us this summer (and that's how we discovered Port Hope.)
Cobourg need more slips and a reservation system.
They promise to do their best to accommodate you no matter what, but, that accommodation ends up being put on a seawall with no power and no security.
In times that we can get in, it is one of our favorite places on the north shore of Lake Ontario.

Nice but it could have been so much better., 2011-07-28
Captain: , Penetanguishene ON (219)

When the marina was first built none of the slips werre over 8 feet and the width of the double was 28' or less. They have added a few longer slips but nowwhere near enough. There uis also only one 30 A service at most docks. This is a prme location in a great spot but is really suited to 28 foot or shorter boats. You can get in with a longerr boat (I am 37') but bring a shoe horn and grease to help yoy slide in.

Need to get a reservation system..., 2011-07-05
Captain: , Toronto, ON (1729)

I've been to Cobourg Marina numdersous times. Great facility, great town. This year we scheduled a stop in Cobourg on our way to the 1000 Islands, there's not much choice of other ports. As it was going to be Canada Day and we wanted to enjoy the Waterfront Festival, we planned on a 2-3 day stopover. Knowing that it would be busy, I called on the Monday before and the pleasant woman on the other end of the line informed me that they didn't take reservations and that I should just come in on Friday, there would be no problem finding a slip. What BS. When I called from 5 miles out I was told they were full and that I could tie up on the East Wall (which is where the Midway is!). We anchored out and took what we were told was "the only available slip" which was too narrow for our boat! So the found another slip, too short.... so they found ANOTHER slip that fit us. I don't enjoy being lied to t the best of times, sorry Cobourg, next time we'll stay in Port Hope.

I'm sorry I only had one night, 2011-05-26
Captain: , Picton, ON (270)

This marina was awsome, hot showers, great grounds, the people were fantastic, just can not say enough good words. The town is rright there for a nice breakfast, saturday is the farmers market for fresh items, the marine store is a 10 min walk to the west.
I have this placed in my GPS as a permenant stop over from now on.

One of the Best Harbours, 2011-05-11
Captain: , TORONTO (424)

This spot is great and offers a choice of anchoring in the bay inside breakwalls, using the limited space on the wall provided by the yacht club or getting a slip/or wall space from the marina. Well run marina with easy access to town. Some good restaurants nearby.

One of the nicer marina's on the lake, 2010-11-12
Captain: , toronto (449)

Very clean marina, nice docks. very close to the town. Nice restaraunts. Boater friendly. Nice place to visit.

My favourite spot on the lake, 2010-08-06
Captain: , St. Catharines (498)

Stayed there several times. The people are very friendly and helpful, the prices are reasonable, and the showers and buildings are very clean.

Save Full Service Harbour, 2010-07-24
