Reviews for Kincardine Harbour Marina
Tight entrance, helpful staff , 2017-07-20
Captain: , Portsmouth, NH (285)

The entrance channel is very narrow especially with a following sea. Inside we had 2-3 feet of depth to spare with our 7ft draft. If they put you on the 'south wall', right before the bridge, be aware that if rain is forecasted, the storm drain outlet is directly across from you and will push you against the concrete wall with shocking force from all the town's water. It felt like we were downstream from the Hoover Dam - the water was coming out of the large pipe and shooting 10ft across the water, causing some damage to our water intake and transducer. Otherwise a pleasant small town and fun to hear the phantom piper. The only groceries in town is a variety store with painfully little except good baked items.

Nice marina, interesting town, but beware west winds entering, 2017-06-29
Captain: , Bayfield, WI (340)

The marina is older, but maintained very well and everything is clean. The staff were probably the most helpful that we've found so far. They help you in and out of the fuel dock (slip), and also at your assigned slip. We entered on a west wind blowing around 15 with 3-4 foot waves and the surge made it challenging to pass between the narrow cement breakwalls at the entrance. Once inside, it calmed down. The town was about 2 blocks away, with lots of shops and restaurants. The beach and boardwalk were beautiful. We watched people surfing, kite boarding, and enjoying time outside. The boardwalk was lined with several memory gardens and was beautifully landscaped. We missed the Saturday piper parade, and for some reason did not hear the "phantom piper" at dusk, but our time there was well worth it.

Well worth a visit, 2015-08-30

One of our favorite stops on a trip north. The dockmaster makes you feel welcome and the dock hands couldn't have been better. the fixed docks are old but we have always been put on the new floaters which are very nice. The restrooms at the marina are old but clean. The restrooms to the south are newer but are open to the beach public. You will want a pic of the lighthouse and to here the piper at sunset. And a walk up to the town is worth it. We ate at a place called the Hawgs Breath, it was recommended and despite the look of it from the outside, it was very good.

Friendly place to stop, 2015-07-05
Captain: , St. Clair Shores (40)

Newer restrooms just south of the marina are easy to overlook, but worth finding. The town is an easy walk, from the marina, and has nice shops and places to eat. Picturesque buildings and homes. The harbor master gave us a nice folder with information about local attractions. A worthwhile stop.

Tired facility, 2015-06-19
Captain: , Port Franks (176)

Easy harbour entrance and the docks were floating and most usable. A short walk to downtown with lots of shops and restaurants to chose from. A nice beach and the "Phantom Piper" came and played from the lighthouse at sunset. A nice stop on our way north. My only complaint would be the washroom facilities were a little tired and could use some updates.

Kincardine Harbour, 2015-05-28
Captain: , Vandalia, Ohio (170)

We were the first transient in late May on our way from Port Austin, Michigan, then on to Tobermory. Nice safe marina. Staff was helpful and town is short walk with many stores and restaurants. Nice town. We would return.

Seemed a bit tired, 2013-10-16
Captain: , Port Huron (423)

We didn't get up the street, but the docks and washroom facilities seemed rather well used and in need of some attention. We were happy to get up to Port Elgin where the docks were brand new and clean.

Great little stop, 2013-10-15
Captain: , Cedar Point, Sandusky, OH (400)

This was a great marina as far as location on he loop. It had a small little town with a great Italiam restaurant, nice views and a Bag pipr in he evenings on clear days. Good stop

Nice stop on way to and from Georgian Bay. Easy in and out with town a few blocks away.

Small town, good place, 2012-06-14
Captain: , Hamburg,GER (310)

Very friendly and helpful people! The Marina is operated by Kincardine Yacht Club and they run it a family style. Slips are either on rather high (about 5 ft) fixed docks or floating docks or along a concrete wall for real big boats. Infrastructure is in good condition only the showers and restrooms need some renovation. Thats compensated by very friendly and helpful people. Small grocery is in walking distance, large Supermarkets about 35 minutes walk. Don't miss to take a tour through the Lighthouse wich is also the club-house.

Kincardin Marina, 2012-02-07

We loved Kincardin and the marina. It's a great stop on the way north. Staff is very helpful too!

Beautiful Sunsets, beautiful people, 2011-12-13
Captain: , Kincardine Marina, Kincardine, Ontario (10)

This harbour is fantastic. There are many aminities near by, most are walking distance. Locals are friendly and more than willing to help.

Planning to make this a repeat destination!!, 2011-09-30
Captain: , Mac Ray Harbor (120)

Great Harbor - wonderful staff. Great town/restaurants to visit. Beach is perfect. Place to walk and run or ride bikes. We visited the first time last year and plan on making there again next year.

Love the Scottish heritage and getting to hear the Piper nightly. Wonderful Wonderful Stop!!

Scottish Heritage Abounds, 2011-02-16
Captain: , Bayfield, Ontario (70)

As other have said this is the nicest place to stop heading up or down Lake Huron. There is also a lovely sand beach right next to the marina. The downtown of this quaint community is close with lots of shops and restaurants if you want to stretch your legs. And of course there is lots of scottish heritage .. you'll hear a piper every sunset, and can join in the Kincardine Scotish Pipe Band parade down main street every Saturday night during the summer.

Wonderful town and marina, 2010-08-03
Captain: , Newport, RI (10275)

Out of all of the towns that we've stopped in during this trip, Kincardine was probably one of our favorites. Everything about it just felt nice. The buildings were well maintained, houses had beautiful gardens, people were friendly, there was a jazz concert going on in the park and the town just had a warm feel to it.

There are miles of *soft* sandy beaches that run along the lake. According to the locals, National Geographic rated this coastline as one of the top places in the US to watch the sunset. So, we headed down to the lake to watch it go down. Based upon tradition dating back hundreds of years, every night they have a bag piper play from the lighthouse. They have these huge chairs along the lake, so we crawled up into one and enjoyed the sunset and the bag piper. What a wonderful way to end a day!

Best stop midway up Lake Huron. Excellent protection in the harbor. Marina is a bit rustic but certainly usable. Electric, water, showers, pumpout, fuel. No laundry and cell phone signal is very poor. wifi is excellent.

Charming and friendly, 2009-03-23
Captain: , Toledo Beach (13)

We have stopped here on our travels both north and south bound. There has always been room for us in our 40' Trawler. Beautiful sunsets accompanied by a bag piper in the lighthouse on most nights in the summer. The entrance can be tricky in a NW or W blow. Enter with power and cut back once you are in the sheet piled channel a ways.
