Reviews for Dauphin Island Marina
Great place to wait out the weather, 2016-05-04
Captain: , Kemah (130)

We were on our way east but with a 20Kn wind out of the north, crossing Mobile Bay didn't look too attactive. There aren't many places to hide between Biloxi and Gulfshores, so we decided to give Dauphin Island marina a try. We are glad we did: marina staff (actually the owner) was very helpful on the phone coaching us in and showing us wehere to moor. Great help getting the lines on land which was helpful in this wind!
No depth under 7' on our approach and nice, clean and straightforward marina. No frills here, mostly sportfisher and charters but they welcomed our 43' Mainship trawler.

short water, 2013-09-21

Flat out told us not to bother coming in. Apparently they have a plethora of sailors piling up in the short water and are no longer welcoming anyone other than shallow draft power boats.

Mostly a fishing marina for smaller boats. Resturant on site was good. Restrooms and showers clean but very bare. Water was very skinny on approach, call for directions and pay attention

Good stop before crossing Mobile Bay, 2013-04-04
Captain: , Thibodaux, Louisiana (190)

We have stayed here several times over the years. The food at the restaurant is good. Fixed docks are fine and the people friendly. The showers and restrooms are spartan but clean. The entrance from the west is under a fixed 25' clearance bridge. We were told the channel out to the East is being dredged which it needed.

Cool view, average facilities, great restaurant next door., 2011-09-26
Captain: , Crestview, FL (170)

We docked here on August 25, 2011, after spending 2 rough nights hanging from the hook in the Mississippi Sound. Our sailboat needs 55 feet of bridge clearance, and 5 feet of draft, so the Billy Goat Hole entrance at the east end of Dauphin Island was the only option for us. If you draft 5 feet or less, you can make it to the marina going around the outside of Dauphin Bay if you are careful. At the south east corner of Dauphin Bay, there is a %u201Cgreen%u201Dmarker that isn%u2019t very well marked, make sure you stay inside of it. The shower isn't available without getting a key from the office, so make sure you get the key before the office closes. Restaurants, convenience stores, groceries, hardware, and the post office are all within walking distance. If you have transportation, Fort Gains, and the Estuarium are must see attractions. We ate at the restaurant next door, Barnacle Bills, and you have to try the shrimp poboy.

Only marina for larger boats (48') on the southwest side of Mobile Bay, 2010-08-13
Captain: , Corpus Christi,Tx (1569)

We went in here to get out of heavy weather from the Mississippi Sound. Wooden docks which are OK, but nothing great. Staff is friendly. Channel from the west is hard to see, but we never saw less than 6.5 ft of water as we went under the Dauphin Island Bridge. Short finger piers and you must back in. Rate is $1 a ft

Marina on east side, south end of Dauphin Island bridge, 2009-09-13
Captain: , Dauphin Island, AL (162)

Gas, diesel and ice available, transient space OK. Groceries, restuarant and Post Office within walking distance. Access from the west thru Aloe Bay, bridge clearance 26 ft.; access from the east thru east end of Dauphin Island. Markings not real clear, but stay along bulkhead. Depth 4 ft. Facilities modest...nearly the only get-a-way from bad weather on the south end of Mobile Bay

Easy stop, 2009-06-27
Captain: , Kentucky (190)

Nice marina just east of Mobile. Good place for us to stop before heading north into the river systems. Local grocery not great, but good enough for a few supplies. Lots rocking and rolling all night.
Wrong area code listed should be 251 861-2201

One stay, 2009-04-20
Captain: , New Iberia, LA (357)

Have stayed only once and the restrooms were not open due to hurricane damage. Stopped on a Sunday eve and restaurant was closed. Good friendly people.
