Reviews for Green Turtle Club
Nice Marina and good staff. , 2016-11-08
Captain: , Kemah, TX (150)

We arrived 11-5-16 before a big norther. It seems we were one of the few boats to hit the weather window to cross the stream from Hillsboro inlet sine prominent NE winds had been howling for weeks across Florida.
We got stuck here waiting out the norther as whale passage seas were huge. Great place to be stuck. Rent a golf cart from Giselle at D&D. Nice on site bar, grocery, restaurant and bluff house turtle bar has great sunsets but a long walk. Faster in a dingy across the sound. Or better go out and tie up at their dock.



Great Marina, too many flies and mosquitos, 2016-05-21
Captain: , Marathon, FL (140)

Extremely friendly, dockmasters, Justin and Gary were great...I even did a little Orthodontic work on Justin. Lots of biting flies, which could be reduced if they had lids on all the garbage cans, none do. Shore power was 236 V, vut there was an island wide 3 hour power outage. The office, bar, and restaurant, run on backup generator. Nice pool with 2 for 1 happy hour drinks 4 to 5 PM. Rented golf carts at Brendals Dive Center, $50 for 24 hours, and drove to Bluff Bay and New Plymouth town. The road to Bluff Bay is very very rough and lots of standing water...it is the far end of the island road. Bluff Bay Marina is very open, and many dock spaces are stern in with no finger piers. GTC has free wifi, BB you pay for. Your first choice should be GTC Marina, more protected, a little more money $1.95 / ft and $0.65 a kilowatt hour. For us it was about $18 a day, running only 1 AC constantly. Be sure and read the meter yourself, before and after, as another boat in our group, got screwed with an incorrect reading (charged for 150 killowat hours for two days, we used 90 kilowatts over 3 days, and they only used one AC and were a smaller vessel.)



A piece of Heaven, 2016-05-20
Captain: , Hollywood (360)

I have been coming to the Bahamas every year since the mid 70's. GTC is one of my favorite spots. Protected from weather, safe, clean with the nicest people one could wish for in the service staff. They offer everything one looks for when vacationing, and in a first class way at reasonable cost. If you want charm, a romantic atmosphere in an Out Island experience come here.



Great marina in a blow, 2015-11-15
Captain: , Chelsea, NY12512 (481)

Our Manta 42 cat needed protection from a storm. Everyone was heading in, The marina at Spanish Cay was turning away boats even though they had space. This marina put us at the fuel dock. Nice place to stay if you can afford it.



Fun marina, 2015-06-21
Captain: , Marco Island, FL (1135)

The dock guys got us tide up in record time. Two of them wokred together were great. Heads and laundry are clean. The club house is fun and a great place to hang around, here are checker boards, TV, live music on the weekends. Seems like they try hard to make it a fun place. The pool was also great and Stand up Paddleboards are free to use right at the beach. Restaurant was also good. The only nagative - and this isn't the marina's fault - there's nothing nearby. You really need to rent a golf cart and go into town.



Price Increase, 2015-06-18
Captain: , Deep Ellum (101)

The transient slip fee is now $1.75 as of June, 2015. Dockhands are very helpful. Water and Electricity are both metered. Docks are finger piers, made for Sport Fisherman that can back in. Center cockpit sailboats need to climb over your lifelines to exit boat.



Will pass on by next time, 2015-03-12
Captain: , Burlington (180)

What's Next?? Burlington, Ontario Stayed here a couple of nights upon our entry into the Bahamas. The facilities are a little long in the tooth and there was this whole could care less whether we were there or not attitude. Much better places to be in the Abacos.



Good with some reservations, 2015-01-24
Captain: , Toronto (230)

The dredged channel was 6'1" when we arrived Thursday Jan 22, 2015 one hour after low tide. We enjoyed the facility and teh staff where very helpfull and except one courtious, now the rub a 50-30 amp adaptor was loaned to us at five dollars a day we asked to have it removed and where told by the desk staff it couldnt be returned as it was now plugged in. Petty but it left a bad taste.
The advertised prices in active captin are not acurate the eat your dock fee is no longer available and it's 1.50 a foot for under a week and 1.25 for a week or longer.
Golf carts and touring the island are great.



Nice Marina, 2015-01-02
Captain: , Halifax NS. (382)

SV Lequesteau

We picked up a couple of new mooring balls that we thought belonged to Green Turtle Marina but actually belonged to a rental office in back of the marina. They charged us $25 a day for the ball but had nothing else. We had to beg at the marina for a shower and even then we were made to feel it was on the sly and very sneaky. We offered to pay the marina for showers but we're told the manager would have to call the owners to get authorization for the extra water. Whatever. We stayed 2 nights then moved on. All in all Green Turtle is a nice place if your a guest but don't expect anything if your not even if you offer to pay.



Double D's, 2014-08-19
Captain: , Charleston SC (217)

Great place to pull into and grab some island food. Meet the man at the end of the dock who makes the best conch salad!! bring him some plastic spoons, and "dawn" soap and he will hook you up!!!



Sheltered with good access, 2014-06-02
Captain: , Bochum (318)

Stopped here waiting to get thru Whale Cay Cut, well maintained marina with good amenities and friendly helpful staff, Golf carts available at $50/day. Nice beach and good snorkeling at the beach/reef just across on the atlantic side. Visit New Plymouth, ok provisioning, and take the dinghy down to the beach at Gillum Bay with low tide - quite spectacular.



Good Food, good dockage, 2014-05-08
Captain: , Naples FL (20)

Sheltered harbor with good docks. The restaurant offers a varity of foods and we have never had an unpleasant meal. Service has been excellent and the locals that work at the restaurant/bar add a pleasant demention to the meal.



Still a couple of shallow spots, 2014-04-15
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (80)

We like this marina, and generally agree with the good comments posted here. The showers look newly redone, and they worked great.

The one issue we saw coming in on April 14 at just above zero tide is that there are still a couple of very shallow spots. One is just outside the outer markers where they stopped dredging. We saw 5.4 feet, which is a concern with out 5.3 foot draft. (We bumped here a few years ago.) The other spot is at the northern end of the dredged channel, almost to the deep hole in the middle of the harbor. We again saw about 5.5 feet. Repeating, the tide was just above zero, so waiting for a higher tide would allow deeper draft to transit. It is just that I was surprised with all the news about dredging that there are still a couple of skinny spots.



Green Turtle Club, 2014-04-09
Captain: , Louisville, KY (80)

New channel dredging has improved access. Marina has been deepened, and more finger piers are available. Wesley and Justin on the docks do a great job



Great spot, fair price depending on season., 2014-03-20
Captain: , Great Falls, VA (1092)

Its a bit far from town, but its well protected when fronts come through and anchoring outside is an issue. Even though customs is in town, they came to the boat here which was a terrific and unexpected convience. The staff is friendly and fantastic, the dockhands are top notch at help you tie up, exactly the kind of dock hands you pray for when coming into a marina. The facilities are nice. Water and electric are metered, so no rip off fixed price electric fees where a small sailboat ends up subsidizing the huge power yacht with 3 air conditioners running 24/7. $1.25 a foot, rather then the published rate of $1.50, but no "eat and drink you dock fee" in mid march when I was here. Despite reports that the channel is shoal, its actually recently dredged, I came through at dead low on a full moon, so about half a foot below MLW and saw no less then 6 feet at the lowest spot.



great place, 2014-03-02
Captain: , Palm Beach, FL (341)

We've stayed at GTC the last 2 summers. Great place. Not pretentious. Comfortable Bahamas!!

Justin at the dock is a great help. Renee in the dining room is awesome. And Debbie at the bar is second to none.

The only negative about this place is check-in and out. Everyone smiles at GTC except the front desk staff. Strange because that's your first and last impression.

Rent a golf cart. Go into town. Lots of history in New Plymouth.

Spend an afternoon on the beach in coco bay...

We'll be there this summer.



Pleasant stay, 2013-12-29
Captain: , Norwalk (273)

Green Turtle Club staff are very friendly. We did not eat but the entertainment in the evening was excellent. The Bar was busy and the staff efficient and fun. A good experience.



Really Neat Place. Recommended, 2013-05-08
Captain: , North Myrtle Beach, SC (3210)

Dock hands are there to help you tie up and they know what they are doing too. Heads need a little maintenance, as only two showers were working and many laundry machines were broken. Clean place and they cater well to you in resturant/bar, even though it is pricey, the place is up scale.



Great stop, 2013-04-27
Captain: , Dallas, TX (726)

Originally anchored outside the sound but wound up getting a slip at the marina to be close to the action. Food was great and service good for the islands, made a reservation for the return trip.
Stay on the return was great as well.



Not so Great, 2013-04-04
Captain: , Stuart, FL (909)

We pulled in here in advance of some strong winds. The dockhands were very helpful with the stern-in tie up, jumping on the boat to adjust spring lines.

The deal with applying food and drink to the dockage fees ended on March 31st, so we paid $1.50/foot. Instead of metered electricity, there is a flat $25/day charge for 50amp service ($20/day for 30amp service). Ridiculous! We had recently stayed at Hope Town Inn and Marina and paid about $30 for a whole week of electricity.

The "free" wifi does not work on the docks. We were told it was best to come into the office/gift store to use wifi.

2 of the 3 men's showers do not work at all. After letting the water run for several minutes in the third shower, I gave up. I was told by someone on the dock that you have to let the water run a long time before it heats up.

We did not eat at the restaurant so cannot comment on the food/service.

Next time, we will stay at Bluff House.



Great Place to relx, 2013-04-03
Captain: , Cleveland, OHio (421)

We spent 13 days here and enjoyed every single day. Never ran out of things to do. Love the beaches, the food, the staff is great, and the Wednesday music by the Gulley Roosters is probably the best in the Bahamas.

We always stop here going both ways and have never been disappointed. Dock Special is great, food and drink credits up to your dockage fees. Power is optional and we usuallyu get power one out of five days. No problems from the staff about doing power this way.



Great place to stop!, 2013-03-27
Captain: , Fort Pierce, Florida (369)

We stopped by for a couple of days after some rough weather at Powell Cay. Dock hands are really good, staff at Club are great and the $1.50 eat your dockage is fantastic. (.90 /ft. if you don't). A true Bahamian welcome. A short hop to the Whale if going further into the Abacos. Will definitely stop on our way back to the States and recommend it to our friends.



Class Place, 2013-03-14
Captain: , Cape Coral (120)

Great staff, bar and restaurant. Brendal's Dive Shop (next door) could be the best in the Abacos.



Scenic and Historic Stop, 2013-03-11
Captain: , Sandusky, OH (284)

The dock and dine program is a great deal. Deduct your dockage fee from your restaurant charges (including liquor). Electric was high - $20 per day (50 or 30amp). Water is metered. Our water bill for four days was under $20. Golf cart rental on premises. A must if you want to visit New Philadelphia and visiting that town is a must. Also, visit Coco Beach - beautiful. Laundry facility needed some help. Half of the 6 washers and 2/3 of the 6 dryers were dead. The showers also were a challenge. Faucets were installed backwards and it took forever if ever, for hot water to come out in some of the showers. Overall though, we've seen worse. Excellent service all around and a great restaurant. We'll come back.



Ease back at Green Turtle, 2013-03-05
Captain: , Naples Florida (30)

Every time we make the cruise to the Bahamas, Green Turtle is always a stopping point. Ease of access and also a generous anchorage off the town of Green Turtle make this a great stop. You have to try the fresh bread here. It is also just a ferry boat ride to Treasure key



Very Nice Marina, 2013-02-09
Captain: , Wiscasset ME (1435)

We stayed here two nights on the dock and dine program. You get a credit at the restaraunt/bar equal to your dock fees, great deal. Marina was clean, staff friendly and helpful, food was very good, drinks were cold and tasty. Marina is very sheltered from any wave action. Deep draft (5.5 and deeper) vessels should ask for slip 8 or higher. We are 5 1/2 draft and were on bottom during a very low tide. Wasn't a problem, but I would rather float. Very far, by land, from town. You can dinghy to town in just a few minutes. Free dingy dock at New Plymouth harbor. follow the channel into the harbor even in a dinghy. Overall a very nice stay and we will be back.



Reopened with growing pains, 2012-07-30
Captain: , Jupiter, FL (1236)

Courteous staff, pretty good restaurant, but they need to work on electrical power. We had to run generator all night to have AC.
Nice folks so we hope they get better.



Don't Clear Customs Here, 2012-07-07
Captain: , Longboat Key, FL (955)

While I thought the marina and facilities were very well run and enjoyable, this was our first stop coming from the US. The Bahamas Customs office is not located anywhere near this marina, and without a dingy or rented golf cart, it is a LONG way to get there. Worse, however, is the customs officer -- a very grumpy and ridiculously rigid person who has earned herself a well deserved cremudgeon reputation throughout the island. I won't bore you with the torid details, but it was a very unpleasant experience especially since I was well prepared, had all my documents in proper order and followed the rules to the letter. If you go to Green Turtle, DO NOT CLEAR HERE!

Now, on the positive side, this is a delightful island, beautiful beaches (and miles to choose from), great restaurants and bars, and some fun and funky shopping.



Excellent facilities, Short finger pier, 2012-06-12
Captain: , Nashville, TN (290)

Green Turtle Club is a good place to stay in White Sound. The marina isnt large and there are few finger piers for large boats so call ahead. Stern to dockage usually available for larger boats. People are good to deal with. Restaurant is very good. Interesting island to explore.



sweet Marina, 2012-05-29
Captain: , Newport, R.I. (644)

Easy to get into with 5' draft nearing low tide, just hug red markers. Staff friendly and helpful! Nice calm marina, peacful and great areas to bike ride!



We were disappointed, 2012-05-08
Captain: , Saint Michaels (310)

As you have read, you get to work off your dockage in the restaurant. This deal may not be there all of the time. A couple of issues: the docks are better for sports fishermen than sailboats -- hard to get off the boat with no finger piers, they had no fresh fish in the restaurant and the quality of the food was not great, they ran out of diesel the day we left after I had gotten what I needed. With regards to the fuel I had asked them how much fuel they had as the other marina on White Sound had none. I was told they had plenty - not what I heard on the radio the next day. This is an area north of the whale and one of the few this far north to get fuel before heading back to the US.



O. K. not great, 2012-03-28
Captain: , Jacksonville, FL (822)

Very expensive dockage. Dockhand, hurt rather than help(tell to leave, better by youself)



Bahamians at their best -- but the "deal" is 15% oversold, 2012-03-24
Captain: , Vero Beach (527)

The staff here is remarkably freindly and accomodating.

The maintaince level on the property is excellent.

The Club no longer has moorings. Brendal's Dive Shop next door does but expect them to be tied up in long term rental. There is room to anchor off the Club but folks tend to snuggle and short scope. We've seen one unoccupied dragger during a heavy squall.

We've sampled a substantial hunk of the menu and the food is worthy of the place.

BUT, the mandatory meal tips of 15% do not count against one's slip fee. That added $100 to our bill -- not welcome and not well explained on arrival -- maybe from now on. [The tips were certainly earned.]



No Problem for 6.5' Draft, 2012-03-02
Captain: , Mayo, MD (414)

Easy entrance and exit to White Sound at high tide (almost 3 feet coming and 2.5' leaving. We were told to favor the starboard markers at the entrance and then mid channel and seems like it was good advice. As others have noted the $1.25/foot offset by any dining charges was a great deal. Very nice resort and good food at the restaurant.



Eat your slip fee, 2012-02-06
Captain: , Lewes, DE (75)

Great promotion - whatever you pay in slip fees you are credited for food and drink at the resort. Nive marina and friendly people.



Nice place to stop in, 2012-02-03
Captain: , Portsmouth (163)

Like everyone has said- dock fees are deducted from your bar & restaurant bill. Water taxi likes to throw some wake when they come in- but just annoying. Nice place to hike or bike out of and rest up from a passage.



Green Turtle Club, 2011-08-05
Captain: , Warrington, Pa (116)

Beautiful Marina. Dock fee was deducted from our dinner bill. The restaurant was very good and the service equally good.

Flat fee for shore power, 30 amp was $12.00.



Nice place to visit, 2011-07-29
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (1134)

Nice resort atmosphere. Docks and power are good. White table cloth dining if that is your thing. Fun bar and patio dining for those with a more casual bent. There were two slip plans when we visited...$0.90/ft/day + $0.50/ft for 50 amp power and $0.20 per gallon for water (not RO) or $1.75/ft + electric and water and your food charges are applied against dockage fees.

Vessels with draft of 4.5 feet or more need to enter with the tide.



Eat Your Dockage, 2011-05-21
Captain: , Ottawa, Canada (363)

If you don't mind spending a few bucks on a marina then Green Turtle is for you! At $2/foot + electric it's a good deal because you can apply your dockage to your food and bar tab. We ate like kings for a week and felt we had a vacation from our vacation - very nice.

You can also get to New Plymouth easily by dingy. Well worth the stop.



can be tricky to get into, 2011-04-09
Captain: , Wilmington Deleware (330)

Very skinny water getting in to harbor, any vessel requiring deep draft should wait until high tide. The marina is part of a small resort with a pool and great restaurant. One needs to rent a golf cart to get into town. Harvey's has great food and fun to sit on the beach and eat. Find the bar Pineapples. Great island and worth a stop!



Definately top shelf., 2011-03-27
Captain: , MONARCH. COLORADO (1156)

This petite resort offers a great deal to enjoy. Large pool, small beach next to slips. Large beaches on backside of island are accessible by golf cart. Onsite dive shop and fishing guide serrvices for deep or flats fishing. Very good dining and terriffic staff.



This is Abacos at it's best!, 2011-01-26
Captain: , Hernando Beach, Fl (300)

Great marina and resort with all the amenities. Rent a golf cart and cruise the Island. Fabulous fishing and diving right offshore. We could have stayed here for weeks!



Green Turtle Club , 2008-03-22
Captain: , Old Saybrook, CT (1021)

Fixed docks: some with short fingers, others with stern access (up a ladder) only. Friendly and helpful. Good restaurant and bar, if a bit pricey. Off season, food and drink come off your dockage bill, so big boats eat virtually free.



Great Stop, 2008-03-02
Captain: , Neabsco Creek, VA (95)

GTC has a great program during the off season through Mar 31 - "Eat your slip fee" Whatever you spend at their rest for food and beverage (less tip and taxes) is credited against your dockage fee.

Great folks who were very friendly and helpful.

We loved it.



Really Nice Marina in a Hurricaine Hole Harbor, 2007-05-23
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (258)

GTC has all the ammenities looked for in boating. Good docks (new), good facilities, rest. & Bar all good to better than good, and other services and facilites on site. The beach is a short ride in a golf cart (rent one) and are very pretty. Dingy docks are available. I could stay there months.

A Water Ferry comes several times a day and runs between GTC and Treasure Cay on Great Abaco.



a Beautiful Spot, 2007-03-26
Captain: , Tampa (246)

Great Bar and Restaurant. They have a dine for dockage program up till Mar 31. What you spen in the restaurant or bar comes off your docvkage. The food is excellent



Beautiful Spot, 2007-02-19
Captain: , Castine, Maine (2997)

Some nice beaches and very friendly people. Enjoyed the restaurant.
