Reviews for Nanny Cay Marina
Worst people ever, 2017-08-15
Captain: , ft lauderdale (10)

Do not stop here. The marina is horrible. We had some work done by the onsite yard approved contractors. Terrible job and if you complain or question the bill the yard will hold your boat hostage. The management's prime objective is to extract as much money as possible from you with the least amount of effort. I have stayed at a lot of marinas and used yards all over the world, never seen a ponzi scheme like this place. Lots of lies, and a huge bill before they tell you to get lost.

Mixed Feelings, 2017-06-15
Captain: , Oregon (386)

Having been there a couple of times to have work done and many fuel stops we have come to the conclusion that this place is not our favorite. The yard manager is difficult, to say the least. Yard staff is a mixed group of people that seem to resent you being there. Marina is semi-helpful on the radio when they answer. But....the guys on the docks are great, greet you with a smile and are very helpful. If you stay in their hotel rooms (we did because of Haulout repairs) you will find the rooms simple, clean and a little expensive. You are not close to town so a cab is the way to get there...not cheap. For my money I would look at Marina Cay for overnight dockage and Spanish town for Haulout.

Awesome little stop for fuel and water!, 2017-05-13
Captain: , Center Island, WA (160)

Easy in, easy out and first rate help at the dock. Don't hesitate to make a stop here. There are also transient slips avaialbe.

Excellent marina!, 2017-02-02
Captain: , Thomasville, GA (10)

Nanny Cay marina is excellent. The slips, although tight are easy to navigate with little wind and current. All services are available. I had work done on my mainsail, boomvang, sump pump & dinghy. The wifi and showers are the best I've experienced.

Nice marina with anything you might need..., 2016-11-21
Captain: , Grand Rivers, Ky (95)

This is a wonderful and clean marina with nice docks and all the services and amenities you may need. Swimming pool, bar, two restaurants, grocery market, boat service repair, parts, haul out, motel rooms, scuba shop, and gift shops.

And they are expanding with more boat slips becoming available within a couple weeks.

LOVE Nanny Cay!, 2016-03-25
Captain: , Nantucket, MA (162)

This place has everything. A pool, beach, beach bar and restaurants, friendly people, supermarket, many repair outfits, Budget Marine, and hands down the best marina showers I've ever experienced. It can be tough to get a reservation in high season (at least for us on a cat), and in terms of laundry there's a woman who takes over the facilities for doing wash & fold (she does do a great job, just means you have to go very early or late to DIY). But if I had the money, I would stay here for the season!

Good stop for repairs, 2015-12-08
Captain: , Port Credit Yacht Club, Toronto (252)

Lots of businesses for repairs and good selection at budget marine. The prices may be a little inflated but worth having the selection. Two options for outboards (Yamaha dealers with selection of two stroke engines and budget marine for Tohatsu). Peg Leg restaurant may not be as good as it looks but still decent option. One warning, it is so calm that if you don't have air conditioning then you regret it. So hard to cool off the boat.

Good shelter, 2015-06-11
Captain: , Charleston, SC (135)

This is one of the best protected spots in the BVI. No matter how hard its blowing outside, it seems to be calm inside the marina. I have stayed there several times and stored my boat on the hard there one summer. The hotel is clean and convenient if your boat is in the yard for repairs. The docks are fair but the slips and fairways are easy to get into. The marina staff is friendly and helpful. The shower facilities are some of the nicest you will find. Good restaurant and bar on the beach. Nice breakfast & lunch spot with the %u201Cbest ___ on the Island%u201D according to everyone%u2019s favorite waiter. Budget Marine is there and a good electronics shop and plenty of other tradesmen for all of your repair needs.

Best Showers and nice people, 2015-05-05
Captain: , Rosemere (10)

This is a very well maintain marina with best showers in BVI. teh rates are good and they also have rates for the dry-sail program if you leave your boat there for a while. Good restaurant but pricy. easy access to fuel dock.

Everything you Need in the BVI, 2015-01-18
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (20)

This was our first stop in the BVI and it was with a sigh of relief to see the very nice floating docks, luxurious bathrooms, and helpful people. We stayed there several times during our trip and every time was consistently good. Their fuel docks are easy access even if you are not staying there and the quality of the fuel was always good. We would definitely go there again.

Nanny Cay Marina, 2013-12-26
Captain: , manson (10)

Kept our boat in a hurricane cradle summer of 2013 and stayed at the marina before a cruise in Nov. During the summer storage someone entered our boat and stole items. This happened to two other yachts we know of. We wrote the marina management to report the incident and asked for help to file a police report. They never responded.
The marina is very expensive. We were charged $36 per day for electricity but the voltage dropped so much during the days that our charger/inverter would shut down. We spent two days troubleshooting the charger before we realized the current was to blame.

They would not give us a confirmation for our dockage after launch, saying the marina was too full due to arrival of a rally. But we got a slip after our launch and during the 3 nights we stayed there were always vacant slips and plenty of room.

We had work done by an approved Nanny Cay contractor who did the job so badly (against our specific instructions) we lost a week off our cruising so we could go to another marina for a haul out and repair of the badly defective work.

The Marina is totally geared toward the charter boat traffic and they treat everyone like tourists, not customers. "Please come, spend your money, then leave."

They advertise a grocery store for supplies and provisions but the "store" is an overpriced mini-mart. If you want supplies and provisions you must have a car. Drive through Roadtown to the new RiteWay supermarket.

We will never return to Nanny Cay. Other cruisers we spoke to reported similar opinions.

Rest After Passage, 2013-12-16
Captain: , Crockett (610)

First point of arrival after leaving Virginia 9 days prior. Had great help on the dock and the boat was quickly tied up. . . Now cocktail then rest :)

Great showers, pool, beach, resturant and bar. Prices are reasonable as well. Been here a few times over the season when we need to recieve shipments and get parts from Budget Marine.

Excellent beach, showers, bars

ONE OF THE BEST, 2013-03-10
Captain: , Norfolk, VA (20)

Excellent marina in all respects. Only one drawback, and it is not the fault of the marina, you have to clear either in West End or Road Town before you come to the marina. I did not know and had to go back to West End. But we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Rate per day for me was 1.40 per day per foot, very reasonnable. I would recommend that marina to anybody.

Nanny Cay Marina Tortola, 2012-06-06
Captain: , Beach haven NJ (510)

This marina is located in a protected harbor and has a great beach bar, swimming pool, and nice restaurant on the premises. The bathrooms are top notch and there is a great beach near the marina exit. There is also a mini market and outdoor restaurant for breakfast and lunch with good food. There is taxi service and nice shops on the premises.

Keith and his crew in the yared are great. First class.

Nanny Cay Marina, 2012-03-26
Captain: , Warrington, Pa (116)

First time here, won't be our last. Best shower facilities. Nice restaurant but I think our waitress was having a bad day. Peg Legs beach bar at happy hour was fun and we met some people from Pa. We docked our Leopard Cat on a "T" and had a great nights sleep. This is a very pleasant place to visit.

Great stop, 2011-11-26
Captain: , Robbinsvill, NJ (148)

Stopped here after Caribbean 1500 and found it to be a super marina. Excellent services and staff at a reasonable cost. Best showers in the Caribbean with private room all to yourself. Good food and drinks at Peg Leg bar/restaurant. Nice pool and small beach to enjoy Sun bathing. Could get excellent wi-fi coverage inside the boat.

Best Showers....., 2011-11-22
Captain: , Oyster Bay (313) the BVI, hands down. You'll never want to leave the air conditioned shower rooms after spending some hot days on a charter!

Nanny Cay Marina, 2010-05-24
Captain: , Portland, Maine (20)

Nice safe spot. Breakfast spot is marginal but does have free wifi and a guest computer to check emails.
Peg Legs for dinner quite good. Fuel is expensive - it's $1.50/gal less at Sopers Hole.

Great Place to Recover, 2009-11-17
Captain: , Hampton, VA (423)

Finish for Caribbean 1500 was at the Resort here. Staff really did do a great job for all the boats. The showers are in fact the best I have ever seen at any marina anywhere. Nice range of on-site shops and stores. You do have to take a taxie into Road Town.

Nanny Cay Marina, 2009-06-03
Captain: , Sausalito, CA (161)

Very nice marina. Pool, swimming beach, weight room, supplies within walking distance, good restaurant, boat yard/haul out.
