Reviews for Savannah Bend Marina
One night stop, 2016-04-28
Captain: , Bedford, NH (625)

We stopped for one night 4/26/16. They close at 5 and we weren't going to make it. Had us tie up to the fuel dock. We stopped at Thunderbolt marina for fuel as they are open until 6 but had no room for us when we called for transient dockage. We left before Marina opened in the morning so we never saw anyone. They took our credit card info when we called for the reservation. Never got a wifi code so don't know how it works. Didn't use the facilities so no comment there either. Only one restaurant within walking distance. We didn't like it at all but that is just our opinion. Be careful if you have a dog to walk. Our little guy had so many prickers on his legs and feet that it took us 3 days to find them all. Would not go back because there is nothing else around.

Staff was nice. Wifi was great, 2015-11-09
Captain: , Buffalo (832)

We arrived two days ago to sit out some nasty weather before heading south. They were the only marina with the last slip available. Mary helped us tie up on the concrete floating dock next to the fuel dock and it was very solid in this high current location. The $65 price included 50 amp electric and we never went anyplace because everything was an extended walk and I have physical issues. The laundry was cheap, but it could be cleaner. We have a wifi booster, so the wifi worked perfectly. We would stay here again.

There's something about Mary..., 2015-10-31
Captain: , Beaufort, NC (121)

We just dropped in for gas, ice, trash and a drop of water. Mary met us on the VHF and the fuel dock with a wry wit and southern charm. She also sent us next door for fresh shrimp. We had Georgia shrimp for both lunch and dinner. She has limited transient dockage, but we'll add this place to out spring trip north list.

Nice place to stop, 2015-10-05
Captain: , Charlestown (946)

Stayed here for a few days to take in the sites. A cab to the River Walk is about $20.00. Enterpise Car will pick you up and for a compact car it was $40.00 per day. Publix and Walmart are down the road to the left 3 miles away/ Facilities are nice, but the bathrooms could use a little sprucing up. Staff is friendly and helpful. Destefano's restarant is just a walk to the left as you leave the driveway. Not fancy, but fresh seafood.

Bad Diesel, 2015-08-03
Captain: , Amelia Island, FL (80)

Picked up 200 gallons of diesel on the morning of Thursday July 30, 2015. Fuel proved to be bad. Had to replace raycor filters twice after obtaining fuel.

Great stop over, 2015-05-27
Captain: , Southport, NC (706)

We came in late and tied up to the fuel dock for the night. The next morning greated by friendly staff. We didnt want to go to town so it was great for a stop over. The price was cheaper than others on the city side. The marina store had lots of supplies. Will stop over again.

Great marina with top notch staff., 2015-03-18

Nice place, 2014-11-12

Stopped here for gas on 10Nov14, nice docks and easy access. Laid back, professional staff.

Great Marina, 2013-10-03
Captain: , Lizella GA (1414)

You cannot ask for a better maintained or friendlier marina. Docking was easy even with current and dock crew know their job. Has a public boat ramp next door. 4 Star only due to no good eating places nearby.

Great marina, 2013-04-17
Captain: , Savannah, GA (20)

Clean marina with friendly staff to assit you. Great deck with rocking chairs to watch the boats pass on the ICW. The gas has a marine additive which is real good!

Top notch stay., 2012-05-20
Captain: , Savannah (30)

We have been in and out of different marina's and have to say this one is at the tops for staff and facilities. The dock are concrete and very solid. Also with its good location right on the ICW you can enjoy a nice afternoon cocktail in the rocking chairs and watch the other boaters go by. We will definitely come back.

Great customer service!, 2012-04-28
Captain: , Savannah (10)

Captain: , millsboro DE (300)

I have stayed at this marina numerous times for extended stays. It is one of the best locations on the waterway. The facilities are 1st rate and the staff are some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting
