Reviews for Ditto Landing Marina
Wonderful town and very nice marina, 2015-11-16
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

Marina was very nice -- although the showers were just ok and the laundry was in the campground. Enterprise car rental was terrific and worked hard to ensure we were well taken care of. Town is lovely with several beautiful historic areas where every house has been beautifully maintained. Tour the rocket and space center was fantastic. Overall a terrific spot --- we stayed both coming and going from Chattanooga.

Nice Facilities -- Very Helpful Staff, 2015-11-12
Captain: , Prattville, AL (280)

Update: We stayed a second night, tucked in for a storm front that blew through. We hardly noticed the 20-plus MPH winds. The marina is well protected on all sides and the floating docks are solid. This is a good place to wait out weather.

We stayed just one night, but would have happily stayed longer if we didn't have another destination to get to.

The staff was very helpful as we arrived, helped us tie up, and connected power.

The floating docks are stable, wide, and clean.

Be sure to mention your draft before you're assigned a slip. We draw a little over 5 feet, so we were put on an end. We heard of another boat with a draft of less than 5 feet that got hung up on a cross member at the end of their slip as they tried to leave.

We will gladly stay here again when we return to this area.

Great staff, 2015-11-07
Captain: , Solomons Island Md (397)

The facilities are fairly new and in great condition. Transient slips are wide with large floating docks. We had to stay 10 days due to emergency eye surgery. Nick gave was very accommodating and gave us a great rate on the slip. The bathroom and showers are new and clean. Did an oil change while here and Nick let us use the marina waste oil drums. Enterprise comes to the dock and Huntsville is close by with specialists and medical facilities normally only found in big metro areas.

Great stop in a great town, 2015-11-07
Captain: , Wilmington, DE (780)

Marina is in excellent condition though the restrooms and showers are small. Need a car to get into Huntsville but well worth it for visits to Space Museum and other attractions. Good town for shopping and eating. Left our boat here for 2 weeks while we returned home and it was well cared for and at an excellent rate.

Good stop, well maintained marina, 2015-10-28
Captain: , Ft Myers, Florida (1663)

Excellent help from the Manager. We arrived after dark and left before they opened but we figured a way to pay them.
Public rest room was clean. Power was good. Well protected, nice floating docks.Easy entry at night.

Ditto Landing: good stop!, 2015-10-06
Captain: , Michigan City, IN (748)

-Roomy turnaround space.
- 7 foot depth.
-Friendly staff.
- Restrooms were immaculate.
- Aldridge Creek Greenway is a dedicated bike and walking trail that goes right to Publix. The Publix was clean, well-staffed, and well-stocked.
- $1 ft.
- Diesel was 3.35 on 10/5/15. Free slip with purchase of 100 gal minimum.

Great Marina, nice helpful staff, 2015-10-04
Captain: , Grand Rivers, Ky (1522)

Very nice docks, 1 shower, two heads. Enterprise Car rental will pick you up at the marina. Great stop to rent a car and visit Space and Rocket museum at Huntsville.

Nice facilities but bring your bikes, 2014-10-20
Captain: , New Buffalo, Michigan (600)

Great facility. Dwayne and the other personel are very helpful. 3.8 miles to Aldis and Walmart by bike using the Greenway which is very scenic and pleasant ride. Bathroom are clean. Enterprise car rental available to view Huntsville and Space Museum. Straight in off the river. 10 ft water at present time at transient docks past fuel dock.

Great marina with very helpful staff, 2014-09-05
Captain: , Naples, FL (682)

Couldn't ask for better service. We were met on the slip allocated to us by the a staff member. Facilities are in great shape, extensive grounds, lots of trees and well maintained grounds with walking/cycling paths. Somewhat remote but worth staying a few days and renting a car to explore Huntsville. Space center is excellent and the antebellum homes downtown are fantastic.

New Marina Office, 2014-06-04
Captain: , scottsboro, Al. (141)

The marina office is new and very close to the transient docks with very clean restrooms and showers. Marina staff very helpful aiding dockage. We paid .75 @foot during our two day stay. Enterprise rental car agency nearby if transportation needed. Very nice improvement to this marina from our last stay here several years ago.

Transient Docks Perfect - Terrific Staff, 2014-04-20
Captain: , Nashville,TN (437)

A medium-sized marina with plenty of transient docks in an inviting, well kept park-campground setting. The transient docks are new and in excellent condition with easy access, nice concrete decks, 55 foot fingers and totally reliable 30a-100v & 50a-220v power. Parking is adjacent and couldn't be more convenient. The staff is knowledgeable, very friendly and helpful. We loved our stay here.

Captain: , Annapolis (20)

Doing a long stay here to do some light work on an 87' Feadship.
The entire staff is world class and bend over backwords to help.
Docking is dirt cheap on a longer stay and includes electric.
Walmart is about 4 miles by cab and Huntsville has the fabulous space center complete with a full scale Satuturn 5 rocket.
Can.t say enough about this marina, safe, world class service, and just a great example of the best the South has to offer transients and long stay cruisers.

nice place to stop, 2013-10-20
Captain: , Everett WA (414)

Stopped on my way to Chattanooga and will stop again on my way back. Nothing nearby but easy in and out, clean, good docks and nice staff.

Ditto Landing Marina, 2013-10-12
Captain: , Deltaville, VA (602)

New floating docks and excellent restrooms only a few steps away. Excellent WiFi signal. Very protected but only a short channel off the Tennessee. Helpful staff. 30 or 50 amp service and water at each dock.
No restaurant or ships store. Transient slips are next to the boat launch and the fishermen are launching early.
Good place for an overnight.

MORE than FIVE STARS!!!, 2013-10-10
Captain: , Chapin, South Carolina (410)

We called Eddie at Ditto Marina to get his recommendations on where we could stop along the TN to get groceries. He immediately said come on and I'll take you to walmart down the road!!!! Eddie was fantastic and drove us to the store and told us to call when we were done. We fueled up at the marina and purchased ice before we headed back down the river. Gorgeous docks, showers, great gas prices. An incredible stop. It was the find of the day!!! Awesome customer service!!!

Still a nice place to stay., 2013-09-26
Captain: , Oriental, NC (80)

Was here in April when I began the Loop. IS still nice here as I have completed the Loop. Still no cable, no CC, no grocerys, in the sticks.
The Niņa & Pinta replicas were here today on tour. Great history.

Cleanest rest rooms on the river, 2013-07-24
Captain: , Pinnacle, NC, USA (1340)

Transient docks are new, floating concrete and close to park for dog walking -- in the boondocks.

Lindsey Marine Services, 2013-07-14
Captain: , Wichita Kansas (21)

Over the winter of 2011-2012 I left my 36' Carver at Ditto Landing Marina. I was in need of an engine mechanic and the marina staff referred me to Lindsey Marine Service. Over the winter Norm Lidsey replaced my port engine with a Jasper Reman engine. He was able to remove and replace the engine through the salon hatch with no damage to the boat. When he finished he returned my boat in as good as or better than he found it. The work was finished on time and on budget. I was so pleased with his work that I decided to leave my boat there over the winter of 2012-2013 and have him replace the starboard engine. I would highly recommend his sewrvices for any work you may need done.

great stopping point, 2012-10-04
Captain: , Cape Coral FL (4176)

Really nice maria, very clean restrooms close to transient docks. Nice docks with stone decking. Staff is VERY helpful One marina employee drove us to Walmart for groccery shopping. There are no stores or restaurants nearby, so plan on eating on the boat. Great deal on transient dockage- buy 100 galls of diesel and get one night free. Thats a great deal for a 40 ft trawler. Would rate it 5 star if there were some grocery and restaurants nearby.
Came back on 10/3/2012 on the way back from Chattanooga. Bought 100 gall diesel and got a free night stay ! Do the math. Its a good deal.

A nice, friendly stop, 2012-10-01
Captain: , Oneida, TN (415)

We stopped in for a couple of nights and it was so pleasant, it was easy to let ourselves be weathered in for a couple more. Eddie and crew are eager to please. The floating docks and facilities are great. Only one shower, but it's a nice, clean one. Rest rooms are excellent and clean. Washer and Dryer are decent and located a short block away in the pavillion adjacent to the campground. As others have said, the distance from stores and restaurants is the only real drawback. The marina folks have a reputation for helping folks if they need something, though, and if you get an Enterprise weekend car deal, this is a great stop. Don't miss the U.S. Space & Rocket Center

Nice stay, 2012-09-22
Captain: , Vero Beach, FL (654)

We first stayed at Ditto for two days on our way to Chattanooga. You%u2019ll have to have a car if you plan any sightseeing or running errands, but Huntsville is worth the rental cost. Enterprise is 5 minutes from the marina and Kevin provides great service. Save your fuel purchase for Ditto 100 gals equals a free night stay. From Ditto Marina there are several nice bike/walking paths along river that avoids roadways and cars, going to town by bike is quite a trek. Marina is very clean, visiting boats are right next to the shower and restroom which are cleaned twice every day. After Chattanooga we left our boat for an extended stay and found it just as we left it. The boat ramp is busy and fun to watch since that is about the internment w/o a car.

A modern harbor, 2012-08-08
Captain: , Memphis TN (977)

Plenty of transient docks, floating docks, friendly. Clean restrooms and showers. For a long stay you would need a car. We stayed a week and really enjoyed the Huntsville area.

Great stop for an extended stay, 2012-05-27
Captain: , Foley, AL (985)

We stayed for 1 month and never ran out of things to do. George and Eddie were more than accomadating. One of the greatest Greenway (bikepath) starts at Dittos entrance for a very scenic bike ride or walk. Currently stops at a Publix, the trail is being worked on to go all the way up to Target/Mall. We'll be back.

What a change, 2012-05-25
Captain: , Pensacola, Florida (132)

After being here a few years ago, we were pleasantly surprised to find wonderful changes have taken place in Ditto Landing. The staff is super too. We will stop here again.

Ditto Landing, 2011-11-09
Captain: , Mystic, CT (382)

Nice, clean marina. Dock walkways are stone block. Car rental available-marina is near Huntsville Space Center, a must see! Staff was helpful in assiting with docking. Campground and picnic area nearby. Nice area for walking.

Great little marina, 2011-10-29
Captain: , Dunedin, FL (6425)

Well maintained docks, lots of help coming in. Transient docks have 30 amp river side of fuel dock, 50 amp beyond fuel dock. Clean restooms, could use another shower ( 1 only ). Nearby bike trail, about 4 miles long. Town and stores over ten miles in. Liked it here, will stop in again after we turn around in Knoxville or Chattnooga.

Excellant marina owned by City of Huntsville, 2011-09-18
Captain: , Louisiana (504)

Stopped here for our first time in Aug 2011 and glad I did. As in the other posts, the new transient docks are excellant. Fuel dock, heads & showers also well kept & new. Dock crew is very attentive - I had 4 dock hands helping me tie up!
As noted in other posts, entrance to marina is kinda tight, especially on weekends, and maneuvering room inside marina is close for a 48' powerboat. Although a bit far from town, there are a couple restaurants which deliver to the marina.
Liked it so much I stopped again on the return trip.

Ditto Landing, Huntsville, AL, 2011-07-03
Captain: , On the water (1501)

Great place to stop with $1.00 ft. rates! Eddie, the Dockmaster, is a great resource for what you need. We were able to borrow his car to run to Wal Mart! Brand new docks, store, and showers! Most friendly staff on the river!

Good Marina, Busy Place on Weekends, 2011-06-13
Captain: , North Palm Beach, FL (539)

Good marina that is very busy on weekends. Easy off the river and sheltered from all directions. Diesel $4.00 per gallon, but you get a free night at the dock if you purchase 100 gallons. Dockage is normally $1.00 per foot, including power, water and wifi. Huntsville is about 14 miles away. You will need a rented car. Enterprise is just 4 miles away and will pick you up at marina. All sorts of businesses including Super Walmart are 4 to 10 miles away. The US Space and Rocket Center is about 14 miles away. Interesting but not even close to the experience at Kennedy Space Center. Has a very good IMAX theater with informative presentations.

excellent in every way, 2011-06-04
Captain: , Sale Creek, Soddy Daisy, tn. (70)

The dockmaster couldn't co enough for us. even ran me to Walmart, then when return trip to the boat he even carried groceries from the car to the boat.. yes free dockage with a min. of 100 gal. fuel purchase.. new showers and bathrooms.. clean!
We will return on our way back

Yes, an excellent place to stop, 2011-05-28
Captain: , Kemah, Texas (235)

Stopped here with our 32' Hunter with friends in a 31' Pearson on the way to Pensacola for the summer.

Plenty of depth in the channel for our 4.5' draft. Very new and clean facilities (read the details in the prevous two posts) with several free wi-fi connections.

We walked up to the adjacent campground where the BMW motorcycle association of Alabama was having a rally and met lots of nice people, heard some good music, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

The only update from the last two posts is that it's now $1.00/foot for a transient but it's still a bargain.

One of the best on the Tennessee River., 2011-02-25
Captain: , baltimore md (634)

We have stayed here twice, Nov,'10 and again Feb.,'11. The experience both times was great. Very nice new facilities with 24 hr. fuel service. The staff cheerfully got water to us in Feb. at the fuel dock, it was still off at the transit slips. Every thing top notch. George the dock master warned us about the tornado sirens before some nasty weather hit. This basin is very protected. Verizon air card worked ok and we got 12 TV air channels. .50 per foot and diesel @$3.26 and a very nice resident boater loaning us his car make this a very nice stop. If you have the means try the Cajun Cafe about 2mi. south of the marina on rte. 231. Terrific food in a low keyed setting 256 650 5586.

Ditto Landing Marina, 2010-10-08
Captain: , Penetanguishene ON (219)

Gas is $3.26, diesel is $3.10. They have 8 40 by 15 foot slips with twin 30A by 125 volt and 8 60 by 18 foot slips with twin 50A by 250 volt power. They also have 10 slips at the fuel dock that they can use for transients. They have new washrooms and 1 shower by the fuel dock and transient slips. They still have the other showers by the RV park. In all a v ery nice marina for $0.50 per foot and a free night with 100 gallon fuel fill.

Great stop before Guntersville lock, 2010-10-06
Captain: , n o n e (127)

New slips and gas dock. Well protected.

We paid $21 for our 44 foot Defever.. Our best price to date.

New Facility, 2010-08-25
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, FL (603)

The gas dock and building are new (May, 2010) as are the docks. 20' wide slips on the larger slips (for <60') and 16' for <40'. Nice new slips, nice gas dock and office. Significant upgrade and redo since our last visit.

.50 a foot.....what more do you say?, 2009-11-13
Captain: , Melbourne Florida (4616)

It is a place to tie up with electric for only .50 a foot......ill take it.

Only marina available for Huntsville, 2009-11-05
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

Run down facility but construction of new docks is ongoing. Transiant docks have marginal power. Many Pedistals are non functional. Sometimes it is difficult to contact them by radio or phone. But hey, 50 cents a foot! No courtesy car and laundry is a distance from the docks in the adjacent camp ground and consists of one each washer/dryer coin operated $1.50 to wash, $1.50 to dry. Plenty of water but care must be taken coming into the narrow channel with the setting current. Good internet via verizon air card.
