Reviews for Sabine Pass Port Authority
Sabine Port Authority Marina, 2015-09-28
Captain: , Saint Petersburg, Fl (227)

We were transiting the GIWW and had to duck for cover and this sweet gem was recommended by a sailing mate that captains the Branden Rose moored here.

The staff is fantastic and super helpful. Newer showers and laundry which came in handy. Oh and a 5 gal bucket of ice is $2.00

If you find yourself in the neighborhood make the stop.

The only negative is the proximity to shopping.

Good stop if your tired., 2015-09-13
Captain: , Houston TX (92)

We overnighted here in September. As the other reviews note, not much here but the basics. Fuel pumps take credit cards and are 24 hour self serve. We arrived after dark and finding the entrance was a little tricky. Once inside things are a little tight. We moored on the T head at the end of the center dock, bring plenty of fenders as the pilings are on the outside. The residents were very friendly. The marina takes cash or check only for the mooring.

Decent marina, 2015-08-11
Captain: , Naples, Fl (171)

This was our second stop on our way from Galveston to MArco Island, Fl. We read before that people were anchoring in the bayou, but as it is 100 degrees, we opted for marina and shorepower: A/C.
Very helpfull staff. We called ahead and the lady prepped her guard staff for our arrival. Rita took good care of us when docking, and Lee took care of us the next day with ice and topping of diesel.
Deccent and clean showers and toilet. The scenery is industrial and lots of fishing boats.

Pluses and minuses but the only marina aound for miles, 2014-12-12

First--do not cut iside the island. You must enter from the main ship channel. Then you enter into a very tiny and narrow dog leg channel but once inside, it's a good deal for the money especially if you like catching flounder and being in the middle of mosutio ridden nowhefe. But there are basic bathroom facilities and no much else. You are in rural Texas and proceed accordingly. Staff can be very friendly. Dont expect much for services although there is a terrific diver nearby...just ask at the office. They will try to help. A tiny gas station and convenience mart is nearby ...but nothing else. For help with parts, try first call auto parts in port arthur ..very helpful. I do not recommend a stay here unless you have to but there is a fuel dock. Beware of currentds when ships transt which happens regularly. Staff will try to be very he;pful.

Friendly and Great Service, 2014-04-04
Captain: , Jamaica Beach, TX (180)

Friendly staff, good accommadations and they sale both gas and diesel.

Adequate layover for a night, 2014-03-14
Captain: , Kemah, Texas (235)

Clean facilities and easy access to fuel dock and transient slips. Pump your own fuel from a pay-to-pump after using your credit card. Max purchase is $200 per pump. Have two cards ready because you may get a denial and fraud alert if you need 200 gallons or more. Fuel was $3.98/gallon for gas or 50 gallons per swipe.

Pleasant stay, 2014-02-28
Captain: , Houston (72)

Stayed for a month in January 2014. Nice people, several livaboards, good gas/diesel and free pump out. Good weekly/monthly rates. Good layover as its a day trip to Houston. Transient dock is to your port after the entrance turn (opposite fuel dock). No groceries although they do have ice. Plenty mosquitoes!

Nice marina but cool in December., 2013-12-24
Captain: , Deer Lodge, MT (329)

Stayed here for a few days in December 2013. 24hr security, staff very friendly and helpful to get you docked, call ahead and they'll be ready for you. Good weekly rate for dockage. Only complaint is bathrooms are open air so 45 degree day in December is what the shower room temp is at.

We just love this place, 2012-03-08
Captain: , Kemah, TX (10)

$63/wk. Nice folks with a small liveaboard community. Only 6 miles from the Gulf. Good place to hole up if East bound from Galveston and the seas or weather doesn't cooperate.

Inexpensive, spartan, industrial, friendly, 2011-07-15
Captain: , Seabrook, TX (323)

See title. Plus, nearest laundry facilities about a mile away at Sabine Pass Motel - go early (unairconditioned) and bring your own chair.

Recently dredged to 8'. Docking is difficult due to short piers. Prevailing cross wind makes docking more difficult. Mosquitoes, Mosquitoes, Mosquitoes. We had clean power.

Few services, crappy ramp, in middle of nowhere.
