Reviews for Houma City Dock
Houma Dock, 2017-06-04
Captain: , Merritt Island, FL (556)

We stayed here May 26-30, 2017. The dock has power and water, and a pumpout. Its well lighted at night. The entrance off the GIWW has an eddy current which can be strong. Plenty of tug/barge traffic in the waterway. Okay food at the hospital, nothing else very close to dock. Dockmaster lives close by, and can be reached by phone.

the stop to make east west travel, 2017-05-29
Captain: , Port Arthur, Tx (526)

have stayed here a number of times on out travels and always the same good dock power and friendly dock master. $25 for any size boat steal stopped again 5/26/17 still good shape met at dock by dockmaster Ray price still $25

A Clean, Well Lighted Place.....Just Yards Off the Ditch, 2017-05-08
Captain: , Galveston Texas (315)

No toilets or showers but it's power hook ups, water, and pump out station at $25 sure beats fighting off mosquitoes in some anchor hole off the Ditch. Attractive park setting and well protected from wakes just yards from the Houma section of the FIWW.

Could not get in -- too shallow, 2017-04-23
Captain: , United States (3192)

We called ahead and inquired about depths. Dockmaster assured us 7-8 ' all the way in.

Arrived toward the end of a long day and ran out of water 80' in from the ICW. We might have been able to tie up at the very first spot on the dock, except that is now permanently occupied by a yacht belonging to some local oligarch. Dockmaster said that deal was above his pay grade. We ended up having to run until after dark for a safe place to stop.

Great Place, Narrow Channel, 2017-02-09
Captain: , Kemah Texas (389)

Docks are fixed, side tie along. They look very new. Very tight turning area. Go to the end of the canal towards the "slips" for a bit more room to spin your boat. You really want to be facing outward so you don't have to back down a narrow canal into the GIWW. Ray, the dock master, was great. We called him about 4 hours earlier just to tell him we would be arriving (all dockage is first come first served basis). Called again about 10 minutes out and he met us to help us dock, turn on the utilitis and of course, collect the fee ($25/night). The place can really only accomodate 4-5 boats a night. The "slips" are really just pillons with Med mooring style docking.

What a great place!, 2016-12-27
Captain: , Wilmington, NC (415)

After a stressful trip down the Arkansas, Mississippi, and Atchafalaya rivers we have thoroughly enjoyed this quiet little marina and we get ready to head east to Florida.

oh what a wonderful place, 2016-11-21
Captain: , Galveston, TX (61)

Well protected right on Main Street wonderful help from Rudy price is right 25 bucks a plus

Great little place, 2016-05-08
Captain: , Houston, TX (40)

We hung out for a few days in this great little marina. Ray is awesome; friendly and attentive. While here we enjoyed exploring the city. Go see Tommy at Jeaux's coffee shop about half a mile from the marina next to the town center. Easy walk down the bayou. Don't forget to feed the turtles.

From a sailboat experience although the first spot on the bulkhead is deeper the second spot moves you farther from the ICW and the barges. Shallow but soft mud and deep enough at high tide for a 6' draft.

Gasoline Now Available In Houma, 2016-04-20
Captain: , Houma, La (22)

Gulf Coast Fuel & Lub now has non ethanol gasoline available on the water. 985-857-3997 They are located on the west side of the Bayou Dularge bridge across the ICW from Munson Gulf Inc. Deep and wide slip. Price is about 60-70 cents hight than stations in the local area.

Favorite stop on our trip East, 2016-04-11
Captain: , Seabrook, TX (70)

We LOVE Houma. And Ray is the best Harbor Master. Always friendly and helpful and makes everyone feel welcome. When we arrived this time Ray presented us with a flyer which listed all the local stops. We noticed that the photo on the front of the flyer were of our group of boats when we came through from Kemah back in 2012. We were flattered! We love all the restaurants and the park is a terrific place to spend time. We have never seen so many boats here... 9 in all. Dock parties and cook-outs and visiting with the locals who stroll the docks is just such a highlight. We plan to be here for a couple of weeks... 6 boats in all.

beautiful little marina, 2016-04-10
Captain: , Chicago (250)

grass, plantings, landscaping, picnic tables benches and close to town! a wonderful stop. i spent two nights here. still only $25 per night.

Gasoline available on ICW, 2016-03-20
Captain: , Houma, LA (10)

Gulf Coast Fuel & Lube has gasoline for sale. Located at MM 60.2 ICW (on north bank of ICW a couple of miles west of Bayou Dularge Bridge) It is a commerical dock so make sure your fenders are positioned correctly.

Clean, well located, 2015-12-30
Captain: , Absarokee Mt (1228)

I have been using the Houma anchorage for ten years, it has not changed, it is still well kept, the power works (although we did find one outlet that had only one leg operational). The Harbor master lives less than a block away and shows up to take the $25 dollars and unlock the power.

SHALLOW wish we could have used it., 2015-11-15
Captain: , Austin, TX (70)

No one seems to mention this... it is only 5 feet deep.

Decent stop, 2015-08-21
Captain: , Naples, Fl (181)

The City of Houma invested a little in the marina. It now has water, pump out and electric. Stgill $25 per night.
Ray helped us dock after we called ahead. The nicest gentleman. Met some nice people. The park was done by volunteers some time back to spruce up the neighboshood. Still works. We used Pitre's Cab service (985-868-1041) to drive us around to the stores and such. Excellent service by Sally. We stayed for 2 nights and liked it.

Great place to stop, 2015-08-10
Captain: , fort worth, tx (71)

Great place to stop. Ray is super nice and helpful. No restroom or showers, and the gas station is a LONG walk with a fuel can. We paid a local fisherman $10.00 to drive us to the gas station and back with our fuel jugs. Despite the lack of facilities, it is still your best bet in the area.

Very Nice Stopping Point, 2015-07-23
Captain: , Kemah, TX (622)

Stopped on Christmas Day, 2014 for the night. Just turned off the ICW and tied up at the dock. Dockmaster met us and assisted in tieing us off. We were the only boat on the dock. A few tugs and barges came through that night, but the fortunate thing is they have to slow way down to ensure making it through this very narrow area, so we were not disturbed by wake at night. Inexpensive place to stop!!

Downtown Homa, 2015-06-16
Captain: , Kemah, Texas (202)

Spent an afternoon and night here. Nice dock bargen at $25/ night. Only down side it is at a city park and there is a lot of pedestrian traffic hanging around. Raymond ( dockmaster ) very helpful. Only improvement would be toilets and showers and a fuel dock somewhere. Great stop.

Between twin bridges, 2015-05-23
Captain: , Kitty Hawk, NC (290)

take caution in this area. Be sure you voice your intentions clearly on VHF 13. Barges come through full speed and it is a blind turn. Shallows quickly upon entrance to 6 or 7 ft. We side tied midway. There were slips further in but un sure of depth. Very friendly harbor master ray came to turn on the power for us. Outlets very skinny. Needs modification. Water spigot required wrench. Nice city park. Short walk to multiple restaurants and bars. Very nice town.

No Regrets, Houston, 2015-04-18
Captain: , Houston (100)

Good place to stop but shallow. We were stuck in the mud but got out on high tide to leave with a 6'6" draft good hookups and inexpensive.

This is a Gem that Needs a Bit of Polish, 2015-04-02
Captain: , Kemah, TX (306)

I love the hospitality of the city and great nearby restaurants and the very helpful dockmaster, Ray. The problem is that for a boat that draws more than five feet there is only room for one boat and that is in the space nearest to the ICW where you take the full force of the tows that pass less than 50 yards away.

When we arrived on 1 April on a rising tide there was a 40 foot boat that has homesteaded at the dock for over a month. He he was in the deep water with about 35 feet of dockage open. We could not fit our 45 footer in the unused space. We were able to plow past him and nose into the dock.

I would not recommend any boat with over five feet of draft come in here unless the space nearest the ICW is open. Unfortunately there is no way to know for sure since the marina operates on a first come, first served basis.

Beautiful setting, 2015-01-22
Captain: , Orange TX (130)

We called ahead and were met at the dock by the harbormaster, Ray. He was very helpful and offered some local knowledge about dining spots. A cab ride to supper with a short tour was delightful. The tows that run during the night were for the most part quite. The boat will try to move fore and aft from tow traffic so tie off accordingly. The dock is next to a nice and clean park. No facilities.

Hard to beat for the price and location, 2014-10-08
Captain: , New Iberia, LA (357)

Very easy stop as it is right off the GIWW between the Twin Span. They don't take reservations, 1st come 1st serve. Price is $25/night no matter what size boat and does not change if you cannot tie into the electric due to others using the 2-3 power stations. Hospital has good food very cheap, other restaurants within walking distance, about 5-6 blocks.

Good stop over, 2014-08-02
Captain: , Corpus Christi (301)

It is shallow by the dock. We draw 5 1/2 feet and could not get the stern pulled alongside due to the soft mud. Other than that no problem. Dock master is friendly and if the pump out does not work call him because he has it off to keep the kids from playing with it. The dock is in a city park.

Gypsy Soul in Houma , 2014-06-25
Captain: , Corpus Christi (221)

We pulled in for 2 nights...all is like everyone said...we had a battery problem and caught a cab to take us to the auto parts store to get a new battery....we ate a "Cheese Burger in Paradise" at the Pit Stop Restaurant about a 1/4 mile walk from the careful when you leave...their is blind traffic west bound and one could truly get hurt...I recommend having some one on the corner of the seawall that can see east and get you a clear window to enter the ICW...this truly is a blind entrance and I can see a boat being run over by a big careful here....Don't gamble or you'll likely "Die"....

A good place to stop....a day back to NOLA and a day to Morgan City.

s.v. Gypsy Soul

works for a stopover, 2014-04-28
Captain: , George West (80)

As the last review said exactly, it is just a place to pull into at a city park that has power. Ray is a great help if you call ahead and tell him you are coming. We arrived on Easter so i hated asking anyone to do anything but he was there even though he didn't need to be. Tommy's Taxi service is great and hauled us to the store and a restaurant, which there were not many open so Fred our driver kept looking till we found one. The ones within walking distance were closed. There doesn't seem to be many marina's on the ICW that cater to sailboats so we were just happy to have a electric and water hookup. it is shallow though, so you must be careful going in, stay as close to the wall as you can.

Nice Family Park, 2014-04-28
Captain: , Deer Lodge, MT (329)

As others have mentioned, channels are shallow. We have 5 1/2' draft and didn't have any problem at the end of the wharf-pointed out ICW so we could watch the action going by. Catch the bus at the NW corner of the park for $2.50 a day and that will take you past Cannata's and Rouse's and shopping malls. The buses run every 40 min during the week and hourly on the weekend. There are five different routes so you can experience the whole area. Walk west on Main Street to "The Pit" for a great hamburger, get it to go and head up another block to "Sue-Sue's on the Bayou". Get a beer to drink with your burger and enjoy the alligator and turtle action below their deck over the bayou. Stop at the Folklife Cultural Center to get pamphlets and info about Houma. Call Ed at the Military Museum and he will come and pick you up. The laundry is a 2 block walk to the base of the bridge (be sure to use the dryers on the N wall). The cafeteria at the hospital has good food. The park is family oriented with children and their families enjoying the playgrounds and picnics. It is a well-lit area with camera surveillence so we felt safe. Lots of nice paths for jogging and walking.

Nice for a Night, 2014-04-04
Captain: , Jamaica Beach, TX (180)

This really isn't a marina - there is a bulkhead to tie-up to with electricty. It is really shallow, and really narrow as well, so enter carefully. There are several restaurants and conveinance stores within a mile and the area is well lite at night. The ICW is only yards away, and while the barge traffic and shrimp boats come through really slow you still feel the wake. For 25 a night - it isn't a bad deal though.

Nice stop over, but no where near a four star marina, 2014-03-11
Captain: , Annapolis (795)

Currently, this dock (it is not a marina) has a four-star rating in ActiveCaptain. One reviewer writes it "would be five stars, except there are no amenities." Yeah, it would be five stars, except it isn't. Not even close. This is wooden dock where you can tie up, plug in, and get water. That's all there is.

Houma is a nice little town and there are things to do in walking distance.

Be careful when entering. The dock is located between the two bridges and it gets shallow fast. We measured 5 feet of water just at the GIWW end of the dock. Be careful when leaving since you are blind to westbound barge traffic. Post a lookout on the bow and make a securite call before nosing out into the GIWW.

Good rest stop, clean well maintained dock, 2014-01-29
Captain: , San Marcos, TX (865)

Spent one night (12/4/13) before continuing to New Orleans. Beautiful park under bridges, docks are well kept. Price includes electric, water and self-serve pump-out. No restroom/bath facilites. Dockmaster Ray is a great guy, met us on arrival and was a pleasure to visit with. Docks are an easy walk to several convenience stores and local restaurants.

Great Stop over, 2014-01-06
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (980)

This would have 5 stars except that their are no amenities. This is a safe haven between two bridges. The entrance has strong currents so be aware of that when entering. Ray the dockmaster came out in a cold rain to catch lines and help us get situtated. This is a great stop over, and safe refuge in bad weather.

Great Place to Stop, 2013-12-04
Captain: , Boyd, Texas (390)

A real bargain; water, electric & pump out for $25. Nice clean town, several food options.

Good Clean Spot, 2013-11-26
Captain: , Port Aransas (992)

We stayed here for a week (pinned by the weather) in November 2013. We found the docks and surrounding area to be clean and very safe with ample night time lighting and cameras on the property.

There are pumpount facilities but we were unable to access them due to our draft at 5'3".

We were only able to get in as far as the length of our boat (45 ft). The boat ahead of us with 5 ft draft were aground much of the time.

No shower/restroom but plenty of water and electricity included in the $25 per night fee.

We walked to the laundromat .7 miles up Park Avenue and found it to be very clean and well run. Cost was average.

We rode our bicycles the 3.1 miles to the Home Depot and Walmart grocery store one day. It was quite a haul with backpacks full of purchases, but doable.

We were able to pick up free wi-fi from the hospital nearby with our Rogue Wave booster but the dock itself does not have wi-fi.

Being as close to the ICW as we were, we had some toss from passing tows, but it wasn't too bad. They do move through often and all through the day and night. Some can be a bit loud. Especially as they passed within 50 ft of our heads at night. There is also some traffic noise from the two bridges overhead but we had the boat closed up due to inclement weather and the heaters running. Hardly noticed it.

Great Stop but no services, 2013-09-20
Captain: , Corpus Christi (240)

This was a very pleasant stop. The marina is in a pretty area. It had power and water, but nothig else. Nonetheless I would stop here again.

Houma on the Range, 2013-08-19
Captain: , Galveston, TX (599)

Another great place to stop, if you don't need a real marina. Houma is a stark contrast to Intracoastal City for things to do. We could have stayed for weeks but for the holding tank.
Fuel will be humped by jug from a gas station at this dock.
No heads or showers.
Narrow slot that docks are in catches passing tug wakes very well, but the bulkhead is very forgiving.

Don't miss live music at the Wetlands Museum, with the live turtles and alligator under the bridge.

Great Place to Stop, 2013-06-16
Captain: , San Leon, Texas (246)

This is one of the best places to stop between the Harvey Locks to Morgan City. The slips are first come first serve but it is ion a beautiful park setting. Very easy to pull in and tie up and includes water, electricity, and pumpout for just $25.00 a night. Ray the Harbor Master is just a phone call away and his phone number is posted everywhere. There is resturants, ice, laundry mat and a hospital just blocks away. The city also has a bus that stops at the marina. Easy In / Easy Out.

Small But Nice, 2013-05-30
Captain: , Corpus Christi, TX (732)

Welcome stop for fresh water and dockside power after many nights at anchor. Pretty small, but nicely landscaped park adjacent and very friendly dockmaster.

Great Find, 2013-05-30
Captain: , Rockport, TX (39)

Clean, well kept, walking distance to great restaurants, more like a park than a marina! When we arrived late one evening and I asked an adjacent boater where to pay the Harbor Master, I was told to "slip a $20 bill under the door of the little cypress building just over there". Very low key, very friendly. We will spend several days there every time we pass thru Houma!

We like stopping here., 2013-05-19
Captain: , Canyon Lake, TX (346)

We can rest up for the jump to New Orleans or the trip away from New Orleans. You can fit several sailboats along the bulkhead. A word of caution. Although the canal is at least five feet deep, the slips at the end of the canal are silting in and are less than 4 feet deep. The canal is wide enough to turn around a 40 footer. We warped ours around to face out for a quick exit in the morning.

Like it has been said before, make sure the ICW is clear before you exit the canal. LARGE things go by at all hours of the night.

Good Overnight 5-1-2013, 2013-05-08
Captain: , Seabrook, TX (286)

Call the number on power pedestal and city will send dockmaster down to collect your $20 and unlock the power. Very comfortable city park with lots of people at the playground. Two convenience stores @ far end of parking lot with basic groceries. 24 hour restaurant also. Docks are in excellent shape.

Nice small facility, 2013-03-13
Captain: , Houston, TX (553)

There is space for only about 2 deep draft vessels (5.5 ft) just off the ICW between two road bridges. It is located in a city park and is pretty quiet. The barges pass by very close on the ICW all hours of the night. And you need to look both ways, check the AIS and announce your intent on the radio before pulling out into the ICW. Lots of restaurants within walking distance.

Well, they are trying hard - and Watch Out, 2013-02-12
Captain: , Lake Travis Texas (85)

The dock itself is pretty nice and close to a laundromat, hospital and bus service. The dock master "Ray" could not be more accommodating. Power, water and a pump out (we did not use the pump out though). The town does have everything you need just a cab ride away. Big ALS BBQ is great. During the daylight hours there are lots of people and kids playing in the park right by the dock. It's very well lit at night and patrolled by the hospital security people 24/7.
It would be 4 stars if not for the neighborhood. Our cabbie told us we were right in the middle of crack and ho central. He then started talking about all of the murders and drug deals happening just a block or so away in about every direction except the ICW. After we got out, he waited to make sure we made the 50 yards from parking lot to boat. So, lock your doors at night and be aware of your surroundings. Also, every rental car company in town closes at 1 on Saturday.
Now, the "Watch Out" is for navigation. The dock is situated adjacent 2 bridges. The dols and pilings for the bridges make for a vary narrow ICW channel. If you exit before 'looking' both ways and get in front of a tow, there is nowhere to go and the current is not going to let you just hard reverse and turn back in. East bound from the dock is tight and curvy, west bound is not much better. When departing, be sure to get on the radio on both 13 then 16. Announce your intentions "This is La Buena Vida departing Houma City dock entering ICW east bound in ten minutes." When I did that a tow answered back imediately and asked me to either expidite the departure or wait for him to pass. We were ready to go with engines warm when I made the announcement, the 10 min delay was just a strategic pause so we left right then without incedent. Just be careful here.

Great spot to duck in., 2013-01-23
Captain: , Naples, FL (10)

I spent a week at the Houma City Dock preparing for and riding out Hurrincane Isaac in September 2012. It is located on Bayou Terrebonne just off the Gulf ICW. It is very well protected. As other reviewers have noted the marina has few services (the pump out had been out of commission for a while). Two blocks away are convenience stores. Probably the nicest amenity at the Houma City Dock is the nearby hospital. Fortunately I did not have any health issues. However, each morning of my stay, I went to the cafeteria on the first floor to get a proper breakfast. Four dollars will buy a full breakfast. Also free wi-fi in the cafeteria.

Gem In The Rough, 2012-11-18
Captain: , Athens, AL (641)

What a pleasant marina, nice job by the city blending in with the city park. Ray was as nice as can be. The price is right at $25. The pumpout was not working while we there. Nice laundry a few blocks away but seems like the city closes up early - the only recommendations by the locals for dinner were to eat at the hospital! We did and it tasted like hospital food, no surprise. But the hospital has a nice WIFI in their Bistro vending machine area. Be careful leaving that there is no cross traffic coming from either direction. There's only room for one boat/tow at a time through that narrow section and the tows can't stop.

Well Placed Stop, 2012-11-16
Captain: , Kettering, Ohio (250)

Returned to spend a night, easy in easy out reasonably priced.
Deep draft sailboats may bump, saw 5.5 ft at low tide, bottom is silty. Great stop between New Orleans and Morgan City. Harbormaster very helpful

Nice little dock, 2012-10-13
Captain: , Boca Raton, FL (1522)

Stayed one night. Pulled in, called the phone number on the electrical post and left a message on a cell phone. 10 minutes later the dockmaster had turned on our power on the dock and we were set. We were there on a Saturday so we probably got the weekend guy who was a retired Welder and knew nothing about boats... but.. he took great care of us. to get to restaurants, walk North along bridge and Hospital past Government Tower. That is where the restaurants start. We got stuck at Dukes, a college type hangout. Not feeling well tonight :). The docks are great. Does get shallow as you go in so deep draft hang outside. Tows run 24hrs and suck some of the water out when they go by so tie up accordingly. If you are going to need fuel, remember, Retrif's is closed on weekends.

Pleasant stop and great people, 2012-09-22
Captain: , Houston, TX (114)

Only $25 to overnight with electricity and water. Short walk to restaurant and small stores. Only 5 slips on the dock, but clean and friendly.

A little depth challenged, 2012-07-20
Captain: , Kemah, Texas (170)

Great place to tie up for a night or a few days. Boats with 5.5' or greater draft need to keep to the end closest to the ICW. Fairway is very narrow so you must back in.

Quiet place to stay, 2012-07-09
Captain: , Reedville, VA (689)

Watch the current when going in. There is room for four or five boats. Found depth at 4.7th.

Very nice park, 2012-04-23
Captain: , Port OConnor, Tx (628)

We spent a very confortable night here. There is a laundry mat a block and half away at the end of the bridge along with a gas station. ll

We will stay here again.

Local Bus Service, 2012-03-20
Captain: , Corpus Christi Tx (411)

Bus transit is available just up the street @ the Liberty street Bridge. Very reasonable rates.

I agree with the other reviews. Tight quarters coming along ICW best to clear on vhf 13 to see if any barges transiting. We had to hand tight to stbd to allow double wide to pass.

Houma City Dock, 2012-01-08
Captain: , Houma, LA (417)

Very nice place to stop. This is a city dock with power and water, but no other services. There are both casual and fine dining restaurants within walking distance. A West Marine, Wal Mart, Sams, etc are several miles away. There is cab service and Hertz and Enterprise car rentals available. These restaurants are close (5-10 blocks): Café Dominique-985-223-7540 (fine dining); Café Milano-985-879-2426 (Italian); Cristianos -985-223-1130 (Italian) and Bilellos Café (lunch spot)-985-872-2220. Melvins is about a mile west by dinghy 985-868-1594.

This is really a great place ..great security camers and drive by, Hospital across the road, stores close by, great reatruants, clean, beautiful gardens and play ground for kids. I can not say enough about Ray, the harbor master as he went out of his way to help us.

Nice docks, Friendly dockmaster., 2011-09-22

We docked here on August 14, 2011. The park that surrounds the docks is very nice, and well kept. It provides some great scenery, and interesting characters. There are restaurants close by. The dock master is friendly. It is lacking showers and bathrooms, though. Make sure that you pull into a slip farther into the canal if you can, or the barge traffic might give you a rocky night.

Charming spot, 2011-07-18
Captain: , Seabrook, TX (323)

Charming city park, but that made it less than perfect: lacked privacy. Also, no restroom/shower facilities. But very friendly dockmaster, good price, and great vantage point to watch families relaxing, kids fishing, and teens canoodling, as well as to view barges crossing canal.

We have stayed here at least eight times over the last few years. Always been a plesant stay. Restaurants are nearby, but no grocery store within walking distance. The price is right---$25 including electric. Docks well maintained.

Nice Stop, 2009-05-19

Once tied up at the Downtown Marina (Houma City Dock) it is about a 5 block walk to the 1st restaruant. Nice stop over, but it does look a bit iffy on a walk back at night, just be aware of your sourroundings.

Very nice dock. It has an attendant and is convenient to hospital and restaurants. Cab service. Elec and water but it is NOT a marina. Very clean and new.
Diesel service and fuel are available near by.
