Reviews for Spencer's Bayside Marina
what a little gem this is!, 2017-05-26
Captain: , Campbell Creek, NC (454)

Spenser goes out of his way to be accommodating and helpful. Small, but wonderful marina. 20 or so slips on floating piers. Not for really large vessels. We are a Monk 36 drawing 13' beam, draw 4' and fit perfect. Spenser started developing his little marina in 2004. Very well thought out, immaculate.
Electric is included in the price of the slip. Quotes $2.50 a foot, will $2 and only measures the boat not davits, etc. we worked a better price than that for staying 4 days.
Laundry is $1 a machine and they have detergent and dryer sheets on the counter.
Good wifi and Verizon LTE/4 Bars
Spacious bathrooms are clean and up to date.
He has an amazing inventory of parts and at good prices. If you don't see it in the ships store, ask ... he has several trailers of parts in the yard. Lots of locals and annual slip holders hang out at the ships store. Really nice group of people and helpful.
No grass on site for walking a dog, but cute beachy neighborhood to walk. There's enough green space for our lab and decent walks to be had.
Call for slips, he never answered our email. But, so glad we called and stopped here.
Spenser has a Denali SUV if you need to run to the store. He doesn't advertise it, but offers it. ShopRite was well stocked and had a really good meat counter for a small store.

Easy access. Impeccable facility. The owner gave us his undivided attention and loan us unlimited use of his car. One of the best choices we made.

Stayed one night 7-6-15 and wished we had more time to spend. Owner has done every thing right in creating this small intimate place.

For those heading N or S through Barneget Bay, we strongly recommend Spencer's on Waretown Creek. Quiet, clean, friendly folks. Provisioning is easy with the use of the owner's car. Well supplied marine store on site. Well protected with floating docks but little tital change.

Captain: , Holland (270)

this is a first class marina with floating docks. Spencer met us at the dock to grab our lines, offered his personal car for a supply run and showed us around the clean restrooms, showers and laundry. there is also a small but well stocked ships store. I do not usually write reviews but I was so surprised and pleased with this one I had to give it a top rating.

We had to get off the Atlantic due to heavy fog and high rollers. Headed into Barnegat Inlet and crossed the bay to Waretown. Stopped at Spencers for a pump out and a slip for the night- That was a few days ago. What a pleasant surpise. Lovely facility with floating docks... nice clean washrooms and laudry. Spencer and his team go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need and they have are well stocked with marina supplies. A mile walk to groceries etc. but if walking is not for you someone will make sure you get there. We could have continued on the ICW to another stop but felt so comfortable here we decided to wait out the weather here rather than moving on. Highly recommend stopping here.

Friendly, Curtious, Very Clean, Spotless, Go out of their way to get you parts if needed that are out of stock at the moment. If you need anything-This is the place to start.
