Reviews for Pictou Marine Terminal
Commercial wharf, 2015-07-08
Captain: , Friday Harbor (212)

To large for most slips (68'), we tied to NE side of long wharf. Typical struggle to fend off pilings. As mentioned earlier, folks here were exceedingly friendly and helpful. Managed to have 110v power and water. Dockage $30/night plus $5 electricity. Short walk to small town with limited shopping. Rented car in New Glasgow (dinghied the 7 miles from wharf) to see Highland Games in Antigonish (July 11-12).



Wharf tieup, 2012-07-26
Captain: , Bayfield, WI and the ICW (1279)

We tied onto the east side of the wharf for $25 with no amenities at all except for the nearby ball game. Quiet.



Basic facility, good spot, 2010-08-07
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (1057)

We stayed for several days after the Hector Marina bungled our reservation, and found this spot as an alternate. Very basic but inexpensive and adequate. Locals are very friendly, dockmaster was most accomdating to get us situated. There are a few 50A plugs on the end, 30A on the sides of the pier. A SW wind will bring the mill smoke and the smell across the river, can be obnoxious. Tanks are anchored off the pier as breakwaters. Finger piers are short, we side tied on the west side. Plenty of local supplies, shops, a local cruiser lent their car for a grocery run to Sobey's outside of town about 3 miles.
