Reviews for Sainte Anne Des Monts
Great town, 2016-10-05
Captain: , Chaumont, NY (257)

August. A good walk into town but well worth it. An awesome bakery at one end of the main drag, Les Delices de la Mer half way down, and Metro at the other end. The harbormaster Sylvester was great and drove me to get a propane refill.



Good stop, 2016-08-02
Captain: , Delaware City, DE (154)

Stayed for a couple of days. IGA is closed.

If you walk West along the beach road to the river, then turn upriver there is a 3.5km trail along the river, and another 3.5 to a lookout. We only did the river bit, and then returned along a paved street. Nice walk.

Good bakery with excellent treats next to Subway along main highway. Also the Chicken and ice cream joit had excellent roasted chicken.



Good stop for overnight or a few days, 2016-06-27
Captain: , York, ME (1880)

This is not a yacht club. It's a fishing port with some amenities for recreational boats. The docks are rugged but by no means pretty. There were plenty of 15A outlets available on our visit, but if you're used to 30A service you'll need to ration your use.

The heads are accessed through the back door to the Exploramer lobby; the dock master will provide you a key allowing 24-hour access. The washer and dryer (one each, $2.75) are in the same room with the showers. All are cllean.

The town may be the big advantage to this stop. Several restaurants, a small laundrymat, a large Metro supermarket, a pharmacy and the brand-new SAQ liquore store (a block or so from the old one) would make this an appropriate reprovisioning stop. All are just a couple of blocks up from the big church.

The Wi-Fi signal is strong on the docks, but seems to drop out every once in a while. The staff speaks some English, but is not 100% fluent.

Update: I walked over to the "other" floating docks, which I assume are the overflow transient docks mentioned in other reviews (my French is not very good so I couldn't ask). There are 3 pairs of 15A outlets on the docks, served by two 20A breakers at the head of the brow. Also at the head of the brow are three outlets that look like they might be 30A and/or 50A, but I didn't go around the gate to check them out. You'd need to sting a long cord down to the floats to use them anyway.



calling all foodies, 2015-07-21
Captain: , Panama City, FL (574)

Docks are adequate and folks friendly, but food lovers should skip Metro and IGA for Les Delices de la Mer. A gourmet food stop with local and regional food. Fresh seafood and sausages plus special cheeses and bread. Condiments galore and gluten free/organic options. Take out or dine in. 418 76410366



Practical stop with solid docks, weak power, 2015-07-06
Captain: , Wilmington, DE (552)

There is nothing wrong with the transiant docks - in fact after Matane they seemed very solid, and easy to enter and leave. However the power is barely 15 amps with a household socket. The town is practical but without charm. As usual, the staff were just great.



Marginal Stop, 2014-07-26
Captain: , Corpus Christi, TX (702)

Well protected harbor, but docks have been assigned to locals and transients are put on a marginally stable remote dock with a frayed 15-amp cord for power.



A Lovely Spot, 2013-07-07
Captain: , Whitby (370)

Waited several days here at the end of June, 2013 while easterly gales blew themselves out.
Staff and locals were very helpful and friendly. Was able to get a ride to the local Rona store to refill a propane tank.
Two good grocery stores, an SAQ (liquor store), and a Timmie's within a fifteen minute walk of the marina.
The local small bakery "le Pain Quotidien" was excellent!! The bread and baked treats alone were worth the stop. The Cafe Latte superb. But ... the bakery is only open Thur, Fri, and Sat.
The ExploraMer Centre is well worth a few hours of your time.



A friendly port, 2013-06-18
Captain: , Toronto, ON (1749)

Stayed for an extra day because of fog and went to Exploramer which is very well worth it.
Good docks, good protection.



Very good protection, 2013-04-22
Captain: , Oka, Quebec (260)

The port is well protected from the wind and the swell.
In town, you have a few places to eat (try Bass Pub). Grocery stores are near the 132, a ten minutes walk. The Metro is a big grocery store while Epicerie Thibault is "the place" to find microbreweries beer from Gaspesie and elsewhere.



Good refuge and town, 2013-01-31
Captain: , Gloucester, MA (806)

We were held up here for a day or two waiting for the wind to subside. Good town with a wide variety of stores including a grocery store within a reasonable walk. Nice museum right by the docks as well.



Great museum and town, 2012-07-24
Captain: , Bayfield, WI and the ICW (1279)

Good protection and docks



sainte anne des monts, 2012-07-12
Captain: , toronto (499)

this was a great little marina which can be accessed at any time of the tide. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Just south of the marina and close by, food and other stores. Due west along the boardwalk is a great little bakery, the breads are fantastic.
No fuel pumps at the dock but a tank of diesel is by the office or the staff will take you to the gas station.



Great port in a storm, 2012-03-05
Captain: , Olcott, NY (2536)

We weathered four days of gale weather here and really enjoyed our stay.
As others have said provisioning is nearby.
What we most enjoyed was the quirky sculptures around the marina and farther along into the town.
Only let down was a "lobster sandwich" at the first resturant on the right out of the marina (sorry, one of those senior moments). It was pitiful.
The inn on the hill, East of the marina along the coast road is something to behold. Stunning building and awesome food.
Harbour master was a lot of fun and cut us slack whenever he could.
Will call in there again, for sure.



Good stop, 2011-10-20
Captain: , Solomons, MD (1915)

Staff speak mostly French and a little English. Small town, beautiful church of St Anne right across from the marina. Tim Horton's, Post Office, ATM's all an easy walk. Marina is not really set up for large boats. No 30 or 50 amp power available.



Waiting out the easterly, 2011-08-05
Captain: , Sodus Point, NY (688)

We stayed three nights here and found everyone to be very friendly and worked to try and speak English. One dock resident drove me to the hardware store to fill up two of my propane tanks. Dockmatser said he enjoyed practicing his English with us. Great experience. Strong and fast WiFi.



Sainte-Anne-des-Monts, 2010-11-14
Captain: , Baie-Comeau (170)

This is our third stop at this marina. We always love it. Exploramer is a nice visit, lots to see and the kids love it. Good seafood restaurants nearby.



Great overnight, 2010-07-22
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (1057)

Stayed overnight, didn't plug in power, only 20 A, not configured for large boats. Pleasant staff, dockmaster spoke OK english, happy that we tried to use french so we met half way! Nice spot, well protected, easy deep approach.



Lovely stop along the Gaspesie, 2010-03-02
Captain: , Sarasota (1427)

Another marina created by building breakwaters into the St. Lawrence. Helpful staff. Lovely town - spectacular church across from marina. Excellent restaurant at marina. Supermarket, hardware store, pub.
