Reviews for Pleasure Island Marina
Not easy from ICW, 2016-08-14
Captain: , Port Isabel TX (640)

Not an easy stop off the ICW, but a great marina for a large boat. We docked on an end pier for our length (64') Saw no one around. We finally found some ladies at the office to pay. $20 per night including electricity. Sadly the self serve fuel pumps did not work. Access is through Sabine Lake from the North or South. Very shallow in places. Advise as previous reviews to stay to West side of lake. We came in from South and left through the North. Would have given more stars if Fuel was available and access easier.



Your pick of slips, 2016-07-05
Captain: , Kemah, TX (159)

The marina is new and empty. The docks are fantastic. Bathrooms could be cleaner. But still a bargain for $20/night.

If the wind dies down, the mosquitos come out in force. Be prepared.



Nice Docks, 2016-06-03
Captain: , Houston TX (102)

Nice new floating docks. Showers clean semi private. Bring bug spray.



Nice floating docks, 2015-06-08
Captain: , Houston (72)

Nice floating docks with plenty of empty slips. Stayed 3 days, clean bathrooms and nothing else. Fuel is available from the small yard on the north side of the yacht club entrance



the dock facilities are first-rate, 2013-11-14
Captain: , Milam Texas (32)

the office personnel are courteous and helpful but are only there during the week. If planning a weekend visit be sure to call ahead and make arrangements. The new floating docks deserve 5-stars. The bathroom and shower facilities were clean but lack hot water. there is no marina restaurant, store, laundromat, or fuel dock. navigation to and from the marina is straightforward. My boat drafts 5.5 feet and I had no problems.



Pleasure Island Marina is rebuilt, 2013-06-17
Captain: , Lake Charles, LA (822)

The new floating slips are in and the marina is very nice. Great sailing in the lake though the approach to the marina is a bit tricky at low tide. My vessel draws 6' and I had a problem getting between the inner most markers and the jetties for the basin. At normal water it was no problem.



marina near completion, 2013-01-17
Captain: , Port Arthur, Tx (476)

Marina should be complete by mid feburary with 300 floating slips up to 50' Water depth at enterance limited to boata with 6' 6" draft depending on tide. south lake enterance bridge clearance 65" beware of center line lights they hang down.



Great support, 2012-01-23
Captain: , Nashville (547)

We needed some maintenance help and a tow boat Captain hooked us up with Larry and Ricky. Ricky is the mechanic and was a great asset for us.
