Reviews for Grand Marais Municipal Marina
Great place to stop, 2015-01-21
Captain: , Grand Marais, Minnesota (14)

Grand Marais is a great town, with lots of good food and shops. Check out the Java Moose for coffee and wifi, the Angry Trout for fresh, locally caught fish, the Coop for wifi and lots of organic produce and other foods. The marina is small, but there are showers and clean bathrooms. There are also mooring balls as well as a wall on the East side of the harbor that is only .50 per foot.



Amazing town, 2014-11-14

The marina was recently updated with a few transient slips for boats in the 40 foot range. Although boats in the 50+ foot range have used them and accessed the fuel dock, it is important to call ahead and get directions. The marina is dredged from time to time but the depth varies so check on that too- but 8' is available in most areas of the marina. Just after the fuel dock it shallows immediatly so do some research before backing in there to turn around. Or just back all the way out. The boat ramp in the SW part of the harbor is currently under consideration for improvements to accomodate the hauling of deep drafted boats but that improvement is not yet approved and if it is approved will not happen until at the soonest 2016. There are talented mechanics in the area and limited marine supplies at local hardware stores. Anchoring in the SW part of the harbor is not as bad as many guides state, and if the wind is out of the SW it's the better place to be but do not neglect your boat and keep an eye on your anchor. The main southern sea wall is where the really big boats tie up, but in a strong norther you will be pinned against the wall, otherwise it is free and beautiful with a pleasant hike to town. Avoid the quickily shallowing boulders on the eastern part of that sea wall. The East wall shallows toward it's northern part, but is also nice, and there is a minimal charge. There is usually room for two large boats with deep drafts there, after that is shallows up. The town is a gem. Great live music, pubs, breweries, shopping, arts, and restaurants. Just wander around and talk to locals, they are all very helpful.



Fair to Middlin', 2011-09-21

It is a bit of a shame that someone (or the city) does not put a few more bucks into this facility in such a picturesque town.

Navigating in and picking up a mooring ball is a breeze. The town itslf is setup for tourism with great place to eat, lots of local attractions and souvenirs made by local artists.

With all that going for it, I would think the facilities could be upgraded beyond a few porta potties.




four locations, four prices, nice place, 2010-08-06
Captain: , Ripley, MI (32)

The municipal and private marinas are right next to each other (as in, you can't tell them apart). The private marina was $1.50/ft (7/2010). There are also public moorings and a wall. The wall was $0.50/ft with no services except clean porta-potties a couple hundred yards away. A super nice little town with super nice people. At least 80ft of the wall has >6ft draft. We'd go back any time.
