Reviews for Port Hope Marina
Go to Colbourg, 2013-10-01
Captain: , Port of Toronto (296)

If you don't mind spending the night across from the facility that refined the uranium for the first aromic bomb then you might not like the marina for other good reasons.

The marina is actually the old government dock with a bit of broken, rickety wood added to the cement wall. There is enough goose guano to start a feriilizer plant. Plan to clean your shoes several times. When I was there the toilets were plugged and there was no electricity at the docks.

The teenage attendant watched me dock single handed without offering any help. I can't remember how much they charged but they should pay you to go there.

The town, which is quite a hike from the marina is pleasant but very touristy. The dock and town are separated by two heavily used rail lines that are in almost constant use day and night and why they have to honk day or night I'm not sure. This really is the wrong side of the tracks.

Don't go there unless you are trying to escape a storm and are desparate.

Misleading price and depth, 2012-07-29
Captain: , Naples, FL (1096)

We expected to pay $16.50 as noted on Active Captain. We were asked to pay $51 for 36 Ft. Trawler when we arrived. Complaining brought it down to $30. Still only 15 amp, no water, shared restrooms with public.

We had called to ask if our four Ft draft would be an issue. The attendant confirmed with someone that depth would be min. seven feet. We saw 4.5.

Town is charming but two issues noted above soured our enjoyment.

No frills here but good people and a safe harbor, 2011-11-24
Captain: , Margaritaville (355)

We put in here this past summer with our 45' trawler, 5' draft and stayed for 2 weeks, just becasue it was inexpensive, great staff, good towns folk and nearby amenities.
A lot of sport fishing folk here on smaller boats and everyone was friendly.
If anything I can complain about is only 15 Amp hydro but at the cost of fifteen dollars per day (yes 15.00) it was a refreshing change. This is a somewhat depressed small town with some environmental problems, a lot of less fortunate residents, an awesome arhitectural history and it deserves better recognition and more help from our Province!

The town put on a wonderful Canada Day fireworks display at the end of the pier about 200' from our bow - it was ringside seat at it's best!

Thank you Town of Port Hope for your hospitality and rest assured we will return again!

Pleasant first time experience, 2011-07-28
Captain: , Newcastle, Ontario, Canada (11)

After the work they have done to improve access, there is no problem with depth. Specially appreciated being docked close to a lovely small beach; which means the sound of the lake all the time.
We took advantage of the live theatre in town that is well known in the area for its excellent shows.
The only downsides are: the view from the west: a solid wall of industrial area; and the proximity of a busy train line.

A very good basi marina, 2011-07-27
Captain: , Penetanguishene ON (219)

This marina is a no frils basic clean Marina. It is only 5 miles (8 km) from COburg and is a good spot to go when Coburg is full. We are 37' along and apparently we are the largest boat so far this year. Best diesel prices.
