Reviews for Havre polyvalent de Riviere-Madeleine
A great port in a storm., 2016-09-06
Captain: , Boston (111)

We arrived here from Matane and it was perfectly speaced for our trip east. The Marina took in 9 sailboats within one hour and found room for all of us. This is a very welcoming spot. excellent protection from any storm and the docks are solid. We found the restaurant to be excellent. The staff drove us out for groceries as well as fuel. We ended up staying two nights due to weather.

Good spot, nice people, 2016-06-30

We spent two nights here waiting for good weather to complete the transit to Gaspe. Protection was very good from Westerlies to Easterlies, although there was a little surge with the Easterly.

The docks are wood, solid but a little rough, typical of these fishing ports made into recreational marinas. 20A electric only, unless you happen to have an oddball 30A (RV or Dryer?) plug.

We didn't get an answer to our hail on 68, but we butchered the name in French so badly that I don't blame them. Two workers met us to point out where to dock and catch lines, so I suspect they heard us.

We paid at the restaurant, which had one English-speaking waitress. The next day she wasn't there but some helpful customers from another transient boat translated so we could pay for the 2nd night.

$1/foot included the dock, electric, water, heads, and WiFi (ask for the password when you pay). There were showers but we didn't use them. Pay at the restaurant and they'll give you the key. Same for laundry, $2 each, washer & dryer.

The harbor is small but well-protected. There's a string of red floats at the entrance, off the breakwater, that apparently marks a rock to avoid. The restaurant just above the dock has inexpensive comfort food with a few fancier dishes, and is open for breakfast.

The views from the overlook to the West are great. Overall, a good place to wait out better weather.

Would get 4 stars except the WiFi was weak on the docks and I couldn't seem to draw more than about 10A from the power outlet without the voltage dropping below 100VAC. It got better when some other transients left. Maybe they were running electric heaters. The number of transient docks for cruising-sized boats was limited, but I suspect they'd find a way to get you in if you needed to stay.

The transient sign-in book has room for three on a page. The pages for each year are clipped together. There aren't too many pages for 2015, nor 2016. It doesn't look like this place gets a lot of transients.

Great Spot, 2013-08-10
Captain: , Wrightsville beach nc (180)

Miss Darlin and Kiwi II stayed here. Our non existent French had half a dozen locals meet us at the dock. Wind blew a bit at night but the docks were fine with deep water and it was a good haven for the night. Locals supplied firewood for us to use a brick brazier, toasted marshmellows before bed!

Very special place, 2013-04-16
Captain: , Oka, Quebec (260)

This is not a marina but everyone is very friendly. Go get a coffee around 7h00PM and talk to the locals (many of them speak English), let them talk to you about the bears (the place is also called Bear Point).
The entrance can be hazardous when it's windy. But if the weather is good, don't hesitate.
There supposed to build a new Harbor House this year.

OK overnight stop, 2011-10-20
Captain: , Solomons, MD (1915)

This is more of a fishing harbor than a marina. Locals were friendly and helpful. Docks not configured with marine electrical outlets. We walked into "town" to see what was there. Several hotels and a couple restaurants. Coastline is gorgeous in this area. Harbor is well protected with high breakwater. Small snack bar with food. The smallest marina we stayed on on the Down East Loop. Plenty of water on outermost dock; we draw 4'10".
