Reviews for Hindson Marina
Great, friendly folks - fine place to stay, 2015-11-18
Captain: , Ottawa ON (111)

We spent about 10 days there in late August 2015. We were two adults and two small kids, so the playgrouns came in handy and so did the pool.

The staff were truly great, always happy to help and very knowledgeable. The chandlery onsite was also more impressive than I would have expected. Washrooms were clean and because there are many, there was never a wait, even on the busy weekends.

Strongly recommended.

Just returned after five years away on the boat. Our family has three boats here. Good facalities, brand new 50 ton travel lift, all services available. Dock staff are excellent. In the area and need help contact me.

Best deal in town, 2013-05-31

This full-facility marina is easily one of the best price deals in the area.

The best kept secret of the Bay, 2011-08-25
Captain: , Penetanguishene ON (219)

We have been here for 10 years and have travelled all of the Great Lakes plus the Great loop. We have stayed in 100's or marinas in our 16 000 miles of travel. We have found very few marinas that are it equal. Its only drawbak is that it doesn;t have a rterstaurant ou bar but there all lots of those in town.

Very Good Marina, 2011-01-24
Captain: , Midland, Ontario (475)

Hindson's is a first rate marina - repairs and service, great staff, good store, lots of docking. Transient boaters will need transportation to reach the amenities in the town of Penetang.

A highlight of the facility is the carpentry shop - "Woodwork by Kevin", owned by Kevin Hartley, a master-craftsman who is recognised throughout southern Georgian Bay.

Captain: , World (1151)

Family run marina. Had my boat there from 2004-2010. Moved to Perry Sound, because that is the direction I was headed most weekends.

Kelly and his team are some of the best folks around. Always have a smile and are ready to help.

The marina is well protected from any westerly winds... east is a bit open, but winds from that direction don't occur that often.

Gas dock is very well protected.

Good service, good people, 2010-03-12
Captain: , Midland (70)

Very stong reputation. I had my first boat there for a few months.
Can be windy and a bit rough for smaller boats on outer docks.
I moved for that reason because my wife was new to boating and this didn't work for her.
For an overnight visit - Bayport is a better choice. It's closer to Midland's nice ammenities.

great friendly facility, 2009-05-12
