Reviews for South Shore Harbour Marina
SSH Marina, 2017-08-05
Captain: , Seabrook (20)

Good ValvTect fuel with additives included. Competitive price for fuel with good service.

Great Spot but Shallow Entrance, 2017-03-06
Captain: , Beaumont, TX (310)

I've kept a boat this marina for a couple of years and really enjoy all of the amenities. Recently, the on-site hotel/resort went through a major multi million dollar renovation, and now they are starting to make some upgrades to the marina. They've remodeled one set of the bathrooms, upgraded the wifi system, added some courtesy lighting and are working on replacing the pilings for the floating docks. Marina staff is very courteous and helpful. They appear to really be listening to requests and making upgrades just wish they could dredge the channel entrance. During the winter there are times you can't get in/out of the marina due to low water levels on clear lake and the channel entrance. Marina guests have access to the hotel resort pool and other amenities. 10% discount for marina members on hotel rooms and all of the dining facilities on site.

Its a 5 star resort with lots of amenities but had to give it 4 starts b/c of the low water at times.

One of the best marinas in the area. It just takes a little longer to get to the bay from here.

Two years in the marina, clean kept and docks maintained very well. Fuel dock convenient and friendly great staff to assist you. Its a party minded marina, from the docks to the pool and the hotel bar, keep the noise respectful at your slip and there won't be any problem from security, if neighbors complain invite them to your next dock party, give it a shot. Water can be shallow in Dec. & Jan. but if 4'-6" and under draft you can get out and get back with caution. Several amenaties in walking distance, such as essentials; liquor store, mexican food and other food establishments, grocery stores etc. West marine 3 miles away for those pesky issues that come up with boating.

Keep my boat here. Great facilities and floating docks.

OK facilities, 2012-12-03
Captain: , Pearland, TX (40)

I had my boat here a couple of years. Fairly non-attentive staff and not much activity in the marina.
It's a good quiet place although shallow waters through much of the Clear Lake area.

Great Facilities and Great Service, 2012-11-09
Captain: , Houston (20)

The Facilities are clean ad well kept. Recently renovated Fuel dock. Floating Piers, with fingerlings on both sides. Marina has a pool with swim up bar, which is associated with the Hotel on site. Prices are high at the pool, but service is good.

Total lack of security, 2012-06-03
Captain: , Galveston (59)

Moved our boat there at the beginning of May. Spent Memorial Day weekend on the boat. A total zoo. Party on our dock from Sunday afternoon till 6:00 AM Monday morning. Drunks all over the place. Some guy boarded our boat at 2:30 AM and then dared us to call the police. We did with no results, the people throwing the party knew the officer by name. Another dock had two calls to the police department. Marina security totally ineffective as far as getting the noise level reduced even though all dock parties are supposed to wind up at midnight.
We've lived aboard for 6 years and cruised as far south as St.Martin and north as far as Maine and have never been concerned for our safety until South Shore Harbor Marina. Needless to say, we are no longer there.


Nice facility, 2012-04-04
Captain: , Clear Lake Shores (135)

Stopped for gas - $4.60/gallon. Their gas already has "ValvTec", so no need for an additive. I also got a free pump-out while getting gas. Very friendly and helpful staff! Easy access to the docks.

Super Busy Place, 2011-08-03
Captain: , Mansfield, Tx (50)

Place is like a zoo with people from the convention walking on all
the docks.

A wonderful places to keep a boat in Clear Lake, 2010-04-30
Captain: , South Shore Harbour (48)

The marina is owned by a Four star hotel, there is one restraunt that serves breakfast and lunch within the hotel and a bar open until late serving a desent snack. Walking distance, there is a starbuck, a delicious cuban restraunt, a Mexican restraunt, an Italian restraunt, a cafe, and a Marble Slab creamery. All places are exellent, but the Cuban is by far my favorite. The Cuban serves saturday breakfast and dinner, dinner all through the week, but are closed Sunday. South Shore harbour is a great hurricane shelter and full of friendly people. All are welcome into the family and no one is to be left behind:)

Excellent Value, 2008-03-29
Captain: , Louisiana (264)

This is a very well maintained marina. Lots of things to do in this area. Clear Lake is somewhat shoaled up in the channel, but the marina has plenty of depth. Good fuel prices. Pumpouts function well.

Nice Marina, 2007-02-21
Captain: , Houston, TX (1409)

Marina / Hotel complex makes this a very nice place to stay. Too bad they don't cater to transients. Good thing is that you could probably stop for a couple of days and they'd have no idea you were there. Lots of amenities on site and within walking distance, great pool and swim-up bar in the Summer. Great hurricane hole.
