Reviews for Ocean Isle Marina and Yacht Club
Transient Dock 4' MLW, 2017-06-02
Captain: , Chattanooga, TN (41)

While the facilities at this marina were acceptable (bath/showers, no laundry), we had problems with the depth at the transient/face dock. The owner insisted that they had 7-8' MLW at the dock, but there was only 5' at the dock when we arrived with +1.2 feet tide reading at the tide station at Sunset Beach Bridge, less than two miles west of the marina. The tide continued to fall to about 4.5 feet on the day of our visit, matching the predictions of the nearby tide station. Unfortunately, we draw 6 feet, and so we spent some time in the mud here. I was not at all impressed with the owners' response to our situation, and I would not recommend this marina to others.

Great stop, 2016-11-26
Captain: , Westport CT (484)

Called same day and made a reservation for after hours arrival. Staff could not have been more helpful. Nice docks, clean head and showers all right on the ICW. Local cab service worked out great and crew had a great meal at Roberto's.

Would stop again.

Awesome Marina, 2016-06-18
Captain: , Bridgeton (20)

Great service, great people. I would say stop by if you get the chance, also they sell beer in the officec:)

Great place to stop, 2016-04-10
Captain: , Rock Hall, MD (559)

Stopped here on 4/8 for 3 nights due to weather. Great staff and excellent facilities. Showers and restrooms were very clean. Also had free laundry that worked as it should. One of the staff even loaned us his personal car so we could drive into town to get provisions. The only issue we had was the shallow water approaching the dock. Best to come in at mid tide or higher.

Missed stopover, 2016-01-05
Captain: , Norfolk, Va (195)

Wanted to stop here 1/1/16. Called many times and left message etc. Did not get a call back. Answering machine had no indication they were closed nor did their website.

Easy in and out. very clean. , 2015-12-02
Captain: , South Freeport (750)

Stopped one night. Great showers and good docks. Folks were friendly.
We have a folding bike and it took 20 minutes to get to grocery store. It would be quite a hike on foot.

Nice stop, very clean, easy in and out., 2015-09-29
Captain: , Jacksonville (90)

It is right on the intracoastal. We just stopped for the night on our way north. We were late arriving and without a reservation. The owner came to greet us and could not have been nicer. It is very clean and organized. there is not alot nearby without a mile or so walk through a residential neighborhood.

Modern and friendly, 2015-06-29
Captain: , Naples, FL (682)

This is a great little marina right on the ICW. Got immediate repsonse to my phone call for a slip and was met on arrival by two staff to help dock. Marina owner/manager lives onsite and went out of his way to make our overnight stay enjoyable. Marina is in very good shape overall and bathrooms are clean and in good repair. No shops close by but we walked a mile or so to a fine italian restaurant. is also nearby with its competitve prices and excellent service (just a happy internet customer with no interest in this company).

No response!, 2015-04-21
Captain: , Christmas Cove ME (150)

I would rate this marina if I could get them to acknowledge that I exist. I make my snowbird reservations in advance for the two week trip north or south each year...I wanted to stop at Ocean Isle and called THREE times to reserve, each time leaving a message to call back. I am 0 for 3. Have never had a response. We're now reserved elsewhere.

Nice Easy Stop, 2015-02-20
Captain: , Williamsburg, VA (745)

We were late getting in on a very cold day. Frost on the piers in the morning. The marina's accountant helped tie us up. Everyone else had gone home for the day. The bathrooms were the cleanest we have ever seen. We would go back.

Just what we needed, 2014-11-23
Captain: , Havre de Grace, MD (244)

This marina showed up just when we needed it. We couldn't leave Southport until nearly 3:00 and saw no anchorages listed nearby. So we reserved a spot here. Mandy, with whom we spoke several times was so accommodating. I had miscalulated when we would get in and called her back to say it would be well after sunset. She called us in a few minutes to describe to a T how the marina was laid out, how we would approach our face dock, and described where she would put the electrical adaptor and restroom entrance card. She said we could just settle up in the morning for the slip fee. We arrived in the dark, no moon, and had no issue as the face dock was just off the ICW, with no fairways or other docks to maneuver. The facility is spotless, and as we write this, we look forward to tomorrow morning's shower in the nice bathrooms. And they do give a Boat US discount.

fine dock on a COLD night, 2014-11-16
Captain: , Buzzards Bay (391)

Marina staff waited till 4:59PM for my late arrival and I checked in in the AM. Did not see shore side but looks like a newer Rack storage for many boats.

Not helpful, 2014-11-12
Captain: , Las Vegas (322)

We stayed on the facedock a couple of years ago but have not had a need to stay there since. On this trip down we ran into a simple maintenance issue that required us to shut down and change filters. I called and asked to rent the open facedock for an hour while I changed them but they turned me away saying only their mechanics could do the work. We ended up dropping the hook at the edge of the narrow ICW to complete the work. We won't ever stop here again.

great hospitality, 2014-04-15
Captain: , guilford CT (40)

good place to stop. The owner came personally on his day off to help us docking in the rain. Very clean showers and great hospitality
I will com eback

Overrated, overpriced, 2013-11-25
Captain: , Annapolis (795)

The staff is great - very friendly and helpful. Other than that, the marina does not have much to offer. Mile and half to local amenities. At $1.50 a foot, discounted, this is one of the more expensive places to stay and you don't get anything extra for it.

Free stop for church & lunch, 2013-11-17
Captain: , US East Coast (610)

stopped here to attend the Ocean View Baptist church just right up the street and then lunched on the boat before heading south

No charge for us, very friendly staff, right on the ICW and good southern hospitality

Would stay here overnight if schedule fit but we couldn't make it through Lockwoods Folly the previous day

Would stay here again, 2013-05-14
Captain: , Hampton, VA (115)

Dock master came from his house 15 miles away to help us get in and settled after hours. Very nice facilities with easy access.

Very nice and well maintained, 2013-04-30
Captain: , Hartfield (281)

4.5, Very service oriented, pleasant, but we were on the bottom at low tide on outside face dock. Very quiet.

Clean, convenient, but can be rocky on the face dock., 2012-06-02
Captain: , Dunedin, FL (7374)

Lots of help docking. Floating docks in very good condition. Clean facility, restroom, shower. Right on the ICW, can be rocky with passing traffic - we thought not too bad the single night we stayed. Plenty of local steets, grassy area to walk your dog. Not very convenient for grocery, restaurants.

Unplanned but nice stop, 2012-05-07
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (386)

Stopped here after a 10 hour day on the ICW northbound. Staff stayed after hours to help with docklines and assist with fuel and pumpout.The female crew enjoyed a TUB in the women's bathroom!
We stayed here on a Monday in late April, 2012. At that time the
staff said the office was closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make note and call ahead if you are traveling early or late in the season.

Ocean Isle, 2012-04-26
Captain: , Toms River, NJ (21)

Very Helpful, Winds 20 To 25 MPH, had three people to assist in docking, extremely customer friendly!

Easy Access, 2012-02-08
Captain: , SeaScape Marina (310)

Staff waiting for you to arrive. Access to fuel and other necessities very easy.

Great Customer Service, 2012-01-20
Captain: , Southport, NC (916)

I was planning a visit to the canals at Ocean Isle Beach for a family vacation and with a 39" draft on my boat I wanted to be sure the house we were looking to rent would work for my boat. I called OIMYC 6 months in advance and not only did they give me great local knowledge on the recent dredging in the area but they took the address of the rental and checked it out for me. When we arrived I was sure to purchase fuel there each time.

Very helpfull, good services and WiFi, 2011-11-30
Captain: , Baie-Comeau (170)

We were not supposed to come here, but we are happy that we did! They gave us good tips on the next 10 miles on the ICW.
The docs are like new. We didn't get to use the new showers because they are closed in the evenings, but the old one is in good shape. There is a bath (wich is rare) with a shower. Very clean.
And they have secured WiFi acces.

Very nice staff, updated facility, 2011-11-16
Captain: , Key West, FL (758)

Met by several staff members who were especially dog-friendly and very outgoing. The office facilities, including very nicely appointed bathrooms and showers, are all new (though only available during office hours; otherwise the older ones are available). The floating piers are in great shape and the power was reliable. Stores, including groceries, are approximately 2 miles away, though the staff offered to drive us. Otherwise, the location does not offer much ("it's in the sticks").

Service is the name of the game!, 2011-11-04
Captain: , Coconut Grove, Florida (31)

We recently bought a 50 Hatteras that was located in their marina. They were super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We spent Halloween away from home and they went out of their way to make our daughter feel special. They can order parts for you and have mechanics on site. Not too far from Food Lion, Napa (delivery) or Pharmacy. Facilities are beautiful and clean, fuel is available as well as pump out service, floating docks are still like new. We will stay there again!

Great Service, 2011-11-01
Captain: , Palm Beach Gardens (604)

We pulled in for fuel, water, and a pumpout. I had three people on the dock to assist all at once, just like a NASCAR pitstop. This was my second time there and will make it a regular. Very friendly people. They are closed on Tuesdays.

First-class courtesy!, 2010-11-11
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (467)

MARY KATHRYN missed the Sunset Beach Pontoon Bridge (RIP) and asked this great marina if we could dock to take on passengers. Paul responded in the affirmative and even send a dock hand to help us dock. Very nice....

Good Stop for a Rest., 2010-10-15
Captain: , North Myrtle Beach, SC (3210)

Pricy for where and what it is ($1.75), but nice folks and facilities. If you stop early, you will get rocked some by passing boats, but not bad.

Nice new facility, 2010-09-02
Captain: , Warsaw, Ky (875)

Stayed here overnight 8/25/10. Nice stop. People are very helpful and friendly. Good stop after Osprey Marina on way north.

Current online Active Captain image does not show the new docks. Fuel dock is not on the outer face dock. It is on the inner face dock.

Transient docks are on the ICW so you do get some wakes. No wake zone has been established but the buoys had not yet been set.

New facility, friendly., 2009-10-28
Captain: , Miami, fl (3646)

good stop if you dont' want to go all the way to Myrtle beach southbound... new docks, friendly folks, reasonable price. Limited nr of transient slips though.
