Operation (seasonal or year-round)

Additional info:


Do not take what appears to be the most direct route to the entrance. Follow buoys until you are almost to the wharf then turn to port and run parallel to the stone breakwater keeping green markers to port. Sound horn before turning in through the opening in the breakwater as smaller boats are hidden by the breakwater. Marina is to port as you clear the opening and fuel dock is across the harbour by the public wharf.

Reviews for Pointe du Chene Yacht Club
Nice Marina, not much nearby, 2016-07-14
Captain: , York, ME (1971)

The marina (owned by the members) is great. Great facilities, friendly staff and members, very secure location, free laundry (one each washer and dryer.)

We paid $1.50/ft plus $3 electric in July, 2016. Can't seem to update the details page for some reason.

The whole wharf area was turned over by the federal government to the local municipality, and they're developing it as a tourist destination. Nice beaches and a small strip of touristy shops make this an attractive place to spend a day off for locals.

There were two restaurants when we were there; another was being renovated. The Sandbar is little farther from the marina of the two, but only by a couple of minutes' walk. The food was normal tourist beach fare, at normal tourist beach prices. The food was actually pretty good, but portions small. Seriously, how much does cole slaw cost that you have to limit the serving to one ounce?

The other place, Captain Bills, is right across the street. We were told by some local boaters that the Sandbar had better service and slightly better prices, so we didn't try it. But we were in the marina on the infamous Tuesday night; "Wing night" at Captain Bills. Apparently the wings are not the attraction, it's the live music and free-flowing alcohol. Makes for a loud, if happy, crowd. If that sort of thing bothers you, you might want to avoid Tuesday nights.

The entrance is hard to spot, and unnerving the first time. The channel is marked with small green buoys that are hard to see from a distance. You travel right along the breakwater, then hang a sharp 180 into the harbor. Remember to use your prolonged blast sound signal!

One last observation: The whole bay is sand. You might be OK to just pick a spot of the desired depth, outside a marked channel, and drop the hook anywhere the protection looked right. There are a lot of sand bars, but not everywhere.

Captain: , toronto (499)

Great marina with friendly hosts and all you could want. We arrived on a very hot Tue. night and the whole area was chock a bloc like a Friday night on a long weekend. Wing night at the harbour restrnt. and a live band added to the trongs of people. Watch entry into breakwalls, good idea to sound horn in and out.

Great Spot, 2012-07-22
Captain: , Bayfield, WI and the ICW (1380)

What's not to like about it? Free laundry, good prices, except for fuel. Buy that in PEI where it's a lot cheaper. Friendly atmosphere and great proximity to an interesting wharf.

Very nice marina and town, 2011-10-20
Captain: , Solomons, MD (1915)

The last turn into the marina is a 180 degree turn to starboard. Channel is narrow and a strong wind on your port side will make the approach more challenging. Very nice marina; small town adjacent.

Friendly place, lobster!, 2010-08-01
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (1318)

This was a very nice stopover, the Harbormaster, Walter, was very friendly, accomodating. Even though it was a big holiday weekend (NB Day), he found a spot for us. He'll do what he can to keep from turning transients away. Nice facility, friendly folks. The public Wharf is home to retaurants, a bar, and some shops. It's touristy, but the marina is far enough from the crowd. Lots of places to get lobster, Shediac is billed as the lobster capital of the east coast. The approach is easy if you follow the charts and the markers, had 8 ft approach at low tide. sd
