Reviews for Lang's Marina
Docks or gone, and were never taken care of in the first place, 2017-09-14
Captain: , Indianapolis (22)

We kept out boat here and thankfuly moved it onto the hook up a river before IRMA. all boats that were Langs East Dock were destroyed. Most of the boats on the west dock were also destroyed while some are in the marsh. It looks like a small part of the west dock remained but walkway to the dock is destroyed. Aside from that i doubt this place will do anything to fix their marina. They do not take care of their property. The best thing that can happen is that either somebody buys this property or the town decides to just put in morring balls and have a shuttle and pump out boat.

Lang's Marina Review - 8/31/17, 2017-08-31
Captain: , MACON (10)

8/28/17 - 8/31/17 The marina has got to be one of the worst maintained marina's in the country. The place is falling apart. No power, no lights, no railings, etc, etc. at the west marina, so we had to get a hotel. Across from our slip, a 20 foot end section of a concrete floating dock broke away while we were there. Boats were on it. It was still swinging around a piling when we left. Bare metal bolts exposed on the side of the floating docks, thank goodness our fenders were out before we got to the slip. We had to get a hotel room because no working power and debris was so prevalent that our generator intake required constant clearing. Power pedestals laying down or half way in the water on both the east and west marinas. The east marina is slightly better than the west marina, but you'll need to search around for a power pedestal without burned out receptacles, bring plenty of power cord. The tripping hazards, holes in the dock walkways, and missing docks, submerged docks, at the west dock are too numerous to mention. The dockmaster, Nat, was a nice kind gentleman, always saying he wanted to help. Cutting deals to get you to stay while waiting the weather out instead leaving. Made promises of returning dock fees if weather broke and we left early, but of course when the weather broke and we left two days early, he was quick to say they had a policy of not returning any prepaid fees as he pointed to the sign and said he was happy to help with anything we needed. The overnight rate is $1.00 per foot, while that sounds good, it is overpriced because the place is so dangerous. When you add in the hotel rooms, it's not so cheap. You must really be careful walking around the docks, etc. We were only there by chance as it is the only marina between two large sounds on the ICW and needed a place to leave our boat for a few days until the weather got better. I was there about 10 to 12 years ago under similar circumstances, it was horrible then too. St. Mary's is a nice little town, we had some great meals there this week. People are very nice. It continues to puzzle me and many others why the marina owners do not reinvest in this marina asset.

no service, no power, dangerous, 2017-06-04
Captain: , jacksonville, FL (340)

I like to be positive, so here it goes.

This marina is falling apart. The wooden sideboards protrude into the water. Power pedestals are knocked over, and those that do stand upright have no power. Even the locals say tht the marina management just uses the facility as a cash cow--they haven't fixed anything in years.

When I called I specifically asked if there was 50 amp power--if there wasn't I would have picked up a mooring ball at Fernandina. I was assured by the dockmaster that there was plenty of good power, so I went the extra 10 miles to find this disappointment.

The restaurant--Lang's Seafood--is good, the prices arre reasonable, and the food is ample. It did take close to an hour to get our meal, though.

In summary, this is not a place to stop.

Bad docks, bad service!, 2017-03-06
Captain: , St. Simons Island, GA (30)

Fuel dock is most difficult to see and get to behind two parallel docks in shallow water. No help, no radio answer, hung up phone. We had called early and were told plenty of room. After managing to land and receive fuel were told to dock between two boats only 30'. We're 35'! Said we could dock on the end but when we approached, exposed bolts were on there. We left. Can not recommend under any conditions.

Beautiful Small Town , 2017-03-05
Captain: , Cape May, NJ (340)

Beautiful small town but Langs East Marina needs work. When we arrived the Marina was going to send dock hands. They never showed up. Docks are in rough shape as a result of the hurricane. No padding and some areas had exposed bolts. No wifi and the bathrooms were rough. Did not use them. The power pedestal did work. Rate was $1 a foot and $3 electric. The area was impacted by the hurricane and there aren't many other choices.

Barebones but Great People and Cute Little Town , 2017-01-28
Captain: , Confetti, Kadey Krogen (1719)

Fernandinho is closed due to damage from St Mathew so we decided on Langs as we had been on board 4 days and we needed some excercise. The owner was very nice. The docks are good but not all pedestals are operating. Therefore there are cords across the dock in many places. The water on the pedestals also doesn't usually work so there are hoses across the docks where you can find one that has working water. The pump out also didn't work. Bathrooms are old but ok. All in all it's $1 a foot and it's a cute little town with several shops. We went to Seagles Bar - Riverview Hotel - for drinks. It is a local hangout and was a lot of fun. Bartender was fantastic. We would come back to this marina.

Be warned though....when the current is coming out it is very difficult to dock There are no dock hands. A nearby boater helped us. If he had not, we probably would have left as it would have been too difficult to dock as the current was whipping. In the AM at 6:30 it was calm and very easy to take off

a great overnight stop, 2017-01-04
Captain: , Blue Mesa Co (100)

Fernandina has almost no transiet docks available now, so I stayed here and I was pleasontly surprised. I felt it had everything needed for a comfortable overnight and at $1 a ft, the lowest price I've seen. I was on what some are calling the East dock & I didn't see the west dock at all. I'm a singlehanded sailor and Nat helped me tie up in a 20 kt afternoon wind.
The town is nice and has some great restaurants within walking distance,

Great People, 2016-08-13
Captain: , New Port Richey (310)

If you want the small town greatness and security stop here. Nat is the greatest harbormaster north of the FL line. Don't miss it.

Courtesy Day Stop Only, 2016-05-12
Captain: , Newport RI (490)

We called ahead and were told that we could use the west dock as a courtesy for a day visit. The earlier posts are accurate about the rough state of the docks, but for a day stop it was fine. Thoroughly enjoyed a great lunch and walked the cute town. Definitely worth the stop.

Poorly maintained, 2016-05-08
Captain: , St Marys GA (30)

Lang's marina docks are poorly maintained. The only positive thing is that is is inexpensive for transient dockage and long term dockage. There two sets of docks. The ones near the office are better mainatained and the bathrooms are cleaner. The ones behind Langs Seafood, the docks are poorly maintained and the bathroom and showers leave a lot to be desired. I would never shower there and would rather walk through park to the Cumberland Island port bathrooms, which are maintained by the city.

Not so nice, 2016-01-23
Captain: , Titusville (45)

We went up the St Mary's to get away for a big blow and stayed at Langs. We stayed on a dock very far from the office( our fault ). The docks are in great need of repair and the bath rooms for this part of the docks were disgusting and unusable.
However, all said you get what you pay for: $1.00 a foot.

It'll do in a pinch, 2015-11-28
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (1190)

Lang's West will make do in a pinch especially at $1' or $.75' if staying 7 days. Floating concrete docks with some face boards missing leaving exposed bolts in one small section. Usually plenty of room to tie up away from that area. Power posts were all loose and sitting on 2x4 type skids. Both 30 and 50 amp available although not all outlets worked. Those that did had variable voltage levels. We saw 100vac under load on one post. Another seemed fine. Water is available along the entire dock. Bath facilities were at the East docks as is the office. If you're power independent then you should be fine. It was a safe place to be in a strong front that saw several anchored boats drag anchor. Oh and the people of St Marys are the nicest anywhere. Extremely friendly and willing to help in any way they can. The Thanksgiving dinner they provided was fantastic! As was the service at Seagles.

$1/ft does not have to be bad, 2015-10-28
Captain: , Little Creek VA (605)

If you have ever been to Beaufort SC, you must know about Lady's Island Marina, Factory Creek, SC...the best example of "pride in ownership" we know of. For a buck a foot, you get well cared for docks, bright shiny clean restrooms and showers, lots of help with docking, transport... So, Lang's could do this, but it chooses to be a dump. St. Marys elders should take a road trip to Beaufort SC to see what can be done.

The Only Game in Town, 2015-07-25
Captain: , North Charleston, SC (752)

We had to stay here just to see if it was as bad as Captain Siegel indicated. ;)

Seriously, we wanted to stop and visit St. Marys because we had bypassed it on our 2012 cruise and we didn't want to miss it this time.

Unlike Captain Siegel, we wereput in the eastern section on a concrete face dock. The power worked fine. The docks were in fine shape with an aluminum ramp up to the office, restrooms and access to town.

If you're looking for uniformed dock hands and a free bottle of wine or donuts every morning, this isn't the place. It's do it yourself docking and hookup. Nothing we can't handle, especially on a face dock.

I have to agree with some of the other reviews about a seeming lack of pride in ownership here. Little things like making sure there's soap and paper towels in the restrooms, emptying the trash, installing exhaust fans in the restrooms and a fresh coat of paint and picking up junk would make a big difference.

Still, it's $1 per foot and $3 for electricity so it's a case of getting what you pay for.

okay place, 2015-05-07
Captain: , Alabama (252)

water not availible at every slip. rates good for an overnight stay

St Marys deserves much better than this..., 2015-01-10
Captain: , MV Red Head (61833)

I've taken 6 weeks to fully decide how to write a review for Lang's. It's really difficult to give a fair review for the place. St Marys is a wonderful destination with an interesting town just steps away. If there were a grocery store that could be walked to, many more cruising boaters would stop here for longer.

I had been calling and talking to Nat since the summer. I wanted to make sure we would be able to find a space at Thanksgiving time. There's a great cruisers Thanksgiving that we wanted to experience and with our dogs, we really wanted to be at a dock to make it easy to get them some shore time. Nat was helpful and told us that there were no reservations but that space wouldn't be a problem.

As instructed, I called Nat by phone the day before we were going to arrive and the day we were underway for the marina. Nat warned me that there was a problem with the electrical outlets on the western dock where we'd be put. He had called an electrician but with the rain overnight, they might not be able to come that day. We might not have power.

That was a complete and total lie. Nat had not called an electrician. There was no chance of anyone coming out and fixing the no-power situation at that dock, and in fact, the dock hadn't had power for at least 6 months.

If the marina manager is going to lie about something so obvious, what else are they making up?

The docks are a mess. They are dangerous. I seriously hope that no one is ever hurt by the exposed nails, unusual wiring, junk spewed everywhere, and boats sunk while still tied to the floating dock. But if someone is hurt, please use this as evidence that they know there's a problem and refuse to do the most basic of cleanup and maintenance required to make the safe environment that they are charging money for.

There was no power. We needed to run our generator in order to keep charged and use power. We might as well been anchored.

And that's my suggestion - don't use these docks. Anchor and come into town at the town dock. The town deserves a much better marina than Lang's. This is, without question, the worst dock we have ever paid to be at. And while again, I hope that no one ever gets hurt here, I sure hope Mr Lang gets sued out of existence for the negligence shown at this facility if anyone ever has an incident and is damaged.

A Great Thanksgiving Stop, 2014-12-03
Captain: , St Augustine, Fl (34)

The town puts on a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for cruisers.
Great food,intersting folks. Marina docks OK, restrooms so/so.
Nat helpful, call on cell 912-882-6410. Anchorage moderaate protection, holding good, strong current.

Nice Place to Stop, 2014-11-24
Captain: , Beaufort, NC (282)

Stopped over for two nights Nov. 2014. Nat the dockmaster was very helpful to us. Helped us with some unique needs we had during our stay. Lang's facility is not first class but manageable at $1.00 per fit. St. Mary's is a safe town to walk or ride a bike. Visitor's center has map for self-guided tour.

Nice little town, sad marina, 2014-10-17
Captain: , Wilmington, DE (552)

Made a reservation and directed to the "west face dock" upon arrival about Noon Conditions were windy with a strong current but no help was available - "There is always someone over there" - but there was not. Connected to power but neither 50 or 30 amp would work. Mostly derelict vessels on the dock plus one sail boat actually on the bottom. No trash bins or service. Walk to the office was over 1/4 mile - took us 3 tries to find anyone there. The place was a shambles. The town deserves a better facility.

A pleasant stop, but not a luxury marina, 2014-09-25
Captain: , Newcastle upon Tyne (533)

Stayed here one night to visit St Mary's, which is very nice and has several restaurants. Nat the manager was very friendly and helpful.
A fairly small and quiet place. Had power and water. Good value.

Georgia funky, 2014-07-11
Captain: , Key Largo, FL (78)

This is not a yacht harbor. It's an old commercial fish dock. This is traveling the ICW as I remember it in the 1960's. The dockage was reasonable but we were here in mid-July. Floating dock is strong but there is lots of defered maintenance. Nat, the dockmaster is a great guy. If you appreciate "Island Time" you gonna jus luv dis place mon.

St Marys Ga/Langs Marina, 2014-04-25
Captain: , Sanford, Fl. (887)

4/14 Stopped here due to nasty weather coming in. Anchorage was full of crab posts so ended up docking at Langs "West" marina. First time here. We were on the long face dock. There were only 2 working power poles on about 100 yards of dock. One at each end. Ended up running our generator and inverters for power as needed. The docks are not lighted at night, so if you go out for dinner be sure to take a flashlight with you. The town is still cute but a lot less businesses were open than when we were here last. Nice place to stop and spend some time relaxing. Concrete floating docks are in good condition. Be sure to stay well to port of the red channel markers just before the final curve to Langs (marker 6 and 8). There is a St Marys Basin boater net every morning at 8am on VHF 69. Gives local weather, tides, happenings around town etc. Usually hosted by S/V Sparrow

Good location, but....., 2014-03-21
Captain: , Bayfield, WI and the ICW (1400)

Docks are OK, but locating electric that works is a challenge. Restrooms are below average. You have to really like submarines to like that museum. Food here is terrific, people very helpful. I recommend Camden Bikes north at 1929 Osborne a ways. Thery had trail maps, lots of advice and air.

Could be alot nicer, 2014-02-26
Captain: , morehead, city (40)

docks in very poor shape, very nice town with great food

NOT THE RITZ, 2013-11-09
Captain: , Nyack, NY (646)

After reading previous reviews I was sceptical. The showers were not so much dirty, as old an tired. A bit like the dockmaster, Nat. We found him helpful and anxious to serve our needs, once we got ahold of him on the phone. Old comments regarding power pedistals , water spigots and bathrom facilities remain unadressed. Owner lacks pride. That said, Nice location, adaquate shower and toilet facilities, (if "Grim"), charming dockmaster, and a dollar a foot. I would stay here again

Great day/overnight stop, 2013-06-05
Captain: , Perry, Kansas (317)

Docks are in need of some maintenance, however Nat, Dockmaster is super. Price is reasonable. Town is handy with restaurants and Submarine Museum which is interesting. Very scenic. A no frills stopover.

short stay, decent place, 2013-05-29
Captain: , Wilmington, DE (780)

were only here a few hours during lunchtime, but the folks at lang's were nice enough to let us use their docks for free. pleasant people to deal with and nice enough docks. St. Mary's is a pretty town, but not much to do beyond a few hours or a day, unless you want to relax, in which case it's idyllic.

Great Town/Deserves Better, 2013-04-29
Captain: , Kinsale (130)

Plan to use your own head and shower here as we found them extremely dirty. The floating docks were adequate but, in some places, cleats were broken and the power and water were not working, making it necessary to stretch lines and cords to another slip. We REALLY loved the town of St. Mary's, our trolley tour, and our walking (self guided) tour! The submarine museum was exceptional as was the beautiful park!

Basic Facility, Charming Town, 2013-04-26
Captain: , Mount Sinai (31)

Strong current, be careful. Nat is charming and very helpful. The bathroom is old and basic, but sufficient. I would return.

Good and not real good, 2013-04-02
Captain: , Athens, AL (641)

Loved the town and the dock rate is good at $1/foot. We called the day before and coordinated our arrival but was a little disappointed that noone was there to help us decide where to dock - got there at slack tide intemtionally and did not want to move again with full tide running. Some of the pedestals and water connections were not working but we finally got the right combination and it was fine. Restrooms and showers are OK, definitely a no frills marina but we don't need fancy. The town is worth the stop and the dockmaster, Nat, is fun and interesting to talk to - speeks with a bit of gullah and has lived in St. Mary's all his life (82).

We like it...except...., 2013-01-24
Captain: , new bern (317)

We have been to Lang's several times now and it has changed very little over the years. Nice floating concrete docks easy to get onto. We try to come at slack tide to avoid the current. Face dock is fine but If you plan to stay awhile or nasty weather is coming, try to get on the inside. Power involves an electric tester to see which power stand works. Some are broken and need repair. Nat is a fixture here and is a great guy. Just call and let him know you are coming and when.
St. Mary's is a lovely little town and the people are friendly and helpful.
OK, so why the word "except"?
If you are expecting a clean and climate controlled bathroom, forget it. My feet never touch the floor here!

Basic services and a nice stop, 2012-11-28
Captain: , Dover DE (145)

I was concerned after reading the reviews of coming into here with no help at the dock. I called Nat and expressed my concerns about docking stating that we needed help when we came in due to our high sides. He asked what time we were coming in and told us to call him when we were 1/2 hour out. He and another fella were on the dock to help us when we arrived. Could not have been more helpful. Cute town and Santa came to visit last night while the town turned out for the tree lighting ceremony. Visitor Center up the street is very helpful and people have been extremely friendly.

See additional comments about town in anchorage tab, 2012-10-06
Captain: , Brunswick, GA (140)

Langs docks are very rough as you can tell from previous posts. It can be a dangerous place to be in SE to S winds of 25k or more if you are on the outside of the face dock as most transients would be located. Use very large fenders and lots of them if you are caught in these coditions. When approaching try the phone if you get no response on VHF. But it's only $1 per foot.

It is what it is and there is no other game in town, 2012-09-16
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2870)

Our comments echo those of tedlow. We did enjoy our overnight stay very much, mostly because we hit a Sat night with a free and outstanding concert in the gorgeous park.

Strong tides updated 2011, 2012-07-26
Captain: , Key Largo (5457)

caution outgoing tide will push you into the dock. Have fenders ready. still $1 ft in 2,011 small town, no supplies, stores and a couple places to eat. Neat ol houses and trees in town rent a golf cart
Be sure and visit Cindi dean, at the local hotel bar!
In 2011 Cidi Dean was engaged!
Still the same in 2012

not bad, not good, 2012-07-25
Captain: , jax, fl (111)

This is a do it yourself marina. If the power post isn't working keep looking until you find a working one. no one is going to help you with your lines(staff). Fellow boaters if around can always be counted on. lots of clutter and stuff on the docks. the docks do appear to be sound and once secured we were not worried. very strong currents and tides. nice town, but not much there. Sunday morning we were hard pressed to find anything open. we got lucky saturday night with a free concert in the park. We'll return here again as we live near by and until the weather turns cooler we need the AC. I wouldnt go out of my way to stay here.

Old world charm!!, 2012-07-15
Captain: , Charleston SC (805)

St Marys is a quiet ,friendly town with the ambience of a byegone era. Good local restaurants, interesting museums, ferry to Cumberland Island, but no grocery or hardware available in the historic district although every imaginable big box store and fast food chain within 15 minutes drive time.
We stayed for a month as we considered the monthly rate of $7 per foot plus $30 monthly for 30 amp shore power (50 amp also available if you can find a coperating pedestal. to be true value. The docks , exposed to the S and SE, are floating concrete supported by high pilings but in desperate need of basic maintance and good house keeping. Langs is not a resort type marina but does provide basic services in a laid back manner.
Approach to the docks easy as you just stand off in line with the dock about 20 feet and both the ebb or flood will carry you alongside. At best this is a fair weather marina where boats suffered damage in both Beryl and Debby.
The Dock Master Mr. Nat Wilson is a delightful older gentleman who is both knowledgeable and helpful and is usually to be found in his office overlooking the docks.
We have enjoyed our stay in St. Marys and would consider returning in the future.
This review applies to the east marina only as we have no personal experience of the west facility but did note that 2 months after Beryl there was no dockside electric and that at least 2 sailboats had there foresails still flying in tatters.

Nice Place to visist, 2012-04-24
Captain: , Jacksonville (290)

Nat was very friendly. Floating dock was good to secure to. Tide change 8 ft plus. Lang's restaurant was very good. Convienient to Cumberland Island

Reasonably priced and close to Cumberland Island, 2012-04-23
Captain: , Marietta, GA (260)

Nat is fantastic and very helpful. Conveniently located if you wish to take ferry to Cumberland Island. Also, easy and affordable taxi service. River otters play near the docks.

Seafood Resaurant, 2012-01-06
Captain: , Jacksonville,Florida (155)

One of the best seafood restaurants I have had the pleasure of visiting. Beautiful little town.

St. Marys is a great stop, 2011-11-08
Captain: , Sunset Beach, NC (1146)

We came here to get out of the Nor'Easter which was pounding the area, and stayed two days before the weather cleared. Nat is a very nice person, but do not expect help with docking. As stated earlier a falling tide will push you right into the face dock, even if there is wind to the contrary. We had got help docking from another person whose boat was parked there, and we in turn helped the next boat to come along.

The bathrooms were pretty simple and I wouldn't call them dirty, but definitely not fancy. This marina seems like an old Shrimper dock converted to a marina.

The town of St. Marys is filled with many nice people. We met the owners of the local hotel / bar and they gave us complimentary Brunswick Stew and grill cheese sandwiches. The Riverside Cafe is Greek owned and has excellent and authentic Greek food as well as seafood and more. I had a home made Gyro with Greek Salad and fries for $9.00. We also had some great crab stew. The next day we attended church at the First Presbyterian Church which is very old and very small, and we were instantly welcomed by everyone and given much adivce on what to do etc. I think St. Marys had the nicest people we've met in three weeks cruising. If not for the somewhat "rustic" marina, I'd give the whole experience 5 stars, but the marina really didn't bother us at all, we were just happy to have a sheltered place to wait out the weather.

Laid Back lots of history, 2011-09-03
Captain: , Midway,GA (261)

Stayed two nights 8-31-11 and 9-01-11. About 45 min off the aicw @ 6kts. Called the marina at 912-882-6401 and Nat met us at the dock to help us with docking instructions. Previous articles about laying off the dock approx 20 ft on an outgoing tide and allow the tide to push you to the dock are accurate. Nat has a vast amount of knowledge and is a pleasure to chat with. Docking is still $1.00 per ft and $3.00 for elect. We visited Cumberland Island while we were there and it was great.

Not a great stop, not a bad stop, 2011-08-05
Captain: , Point Marina, Whortonsville, NC (506)

I had been anchored in St. Marys harbor and pulled in here for fuel and fresh water before heading out. Diesel was $4.27/Gal.
Nat, the dockmaster is not what anyone could call "motivated". A nice guy but hard to find sometimes. I don't think that the marina even has a VHF and Nat is not in the office much. Just pull up to the dock and go look for him,
I pumped my own fuel, filled my own water tank and even filled out my own credit card slip while Nat watched.

No answer on phone or VHF, 2011-06-24
Captain: , Dataw Island, SC (290)

Number shown in Waterway Guide of 912-882-44552 is for the restaurant having no relationship to the marina. I called the correct number of 912-882-6410 every 5-10 minutes for half an hour and also tried contact via VHF. No one answered. I would recommend bypassing this marina and instead stay at Fennandina Harbor where they obviously want your business.

We were docked on the west dock, pretty far from the office, but right at the restaurant. This is a nice little town with a great park right on the water. The ferry leaves here to go over to Cumberland Island and the National Park Service has a nice office here.

Previous reviews of the restrooms (along the side of the restaurant) are accurate - no toilet paper and pretty dirty. Don't know about the ones at the east dock. Nat is very laid back and is difficult to reach. Phones are unanswered and no response on the VHF. Don't expect any assistance for docking. Nat is older than most of our parents and doesn't move real fast.

We paid a dollar a foot for dockage and 6 per day for electric. Decent value.

Take heed of the tide and current, runs about 8 feet up here.

Great seafood at the Lange's Restaurant, very good burgers at the Riverside, and Seagle's was pretty good too.

Rented a car from Enterprise to visit Jacksonville and Brunswick.

We enjoyed our stay here and will likely return in spite of the marina deficiencies.

After two week we had to ask to be clean and two week later it was the same. Trash overflowing on the floor.

The town is very boat friendly and people are always offering to help The good place for internet was Cedar Oak cafe. Stay all day and never felt unwelcome

Worth a stop just to talk to Nat, 2011-02-18

Nat, the elderly dockmaster, told me he hasn't missed a day, including Christmas, in some decades. Quite a character. Just a moderate marina, but I stayed at a bed & breakfast across the street which was great.

We love this place, and can not wait to return. Ferry to Cumberland Park is worth while. Rating is only a 3 since they do not take reservations, and it is a fairly long ride up the river to get here. Do not cur any markers if low tide.

Nice floating docks & close to historic town. Very friendly town to boaters. Strong current.

Nice Town!, 2010-04-04

The Marina has limited space but wlill accommodate any size boat and is located right downtown. The town itself has several good restaurants, bars, and museums. It is an historic town that is an access to Cumberland Island and has a very lovely waterfront park and walkway.

Nice town, 2010-01-05
Captain: , Worton (445)

Town is dominated by the Cumberland National Seashore services, The park is fabulous.
The docks are floating concrete in good basic condition except the electric towers are in poor repair and no lights on the west dock. The dock ground was out of the water at low tide.
Nat the dockmaster is a wealth of local info. Toilets/showers are about the worst I have ever seen. Current can be swift so take all into account docking.
Use the local taxi, the dockmaster charges about twice the taxi rate.

Here is where the ferries depart for Cumberland Island. Floating face dock was a pretty easy tieup. Close to historic town of St Mary's. Three miles to grocery store. Restrooms and shower a bit grim. Great price though

Current can make it tricky getting in and out. Also it's a ways out of the way. For slower boats time the current or it takes a while to get up river.

Good price. Locals were friendly.

If they offer to take you to the store, treat it as a taxi and get the price up front. The dockmaster had one of the guys, drive us up to the grocery store. Thought they were just being nice. Asked the guy what we owed him when we got back and got a non-commital grunt. Gave him a $5 tip thinking we were being nice, then the dockmaster gave us a talking too about not paying him enough. Left a bad taste considering no mention of price was brought up beforehand and the driver didn't respond to a direct question of how much.
