Reviews for Spud Point Marina
Well past its prime, 2016-10-04
Captain: , Seattle (140)

I was told that other reviews are harsh. I found all of the negatives that others have mentioned. The car park looks very risky (broken windows were in evidence). Staff is not very helpful. They are quick to refuse any commitment to space available but also quick to notify that they may demand that your boat may may be relocated if your space is needed. Everything is old and worn out, not much maintenance.

Safe and Comfortable with Questionable Plumbing, 2016-05-06

We stayed for a week in May while waiting for weather and crew for the northbound Cape Mendocino leg. The docks are in good condition, and there is plenty of space. No problem arriving after hours. I called in advance and was told to just pick up a spot on the end of A, B or C docks. There is a fair amount of noise in this working commercial fishing marina, and sometimes the fishing boats leave their big lights on all night. There was also a group of California Sealions hanging out on the end of B, but they only barked every once in awhile.

The pumpout was out of order with a venerable sign taped to it. The urinal went out of order during our stay. Two of the four shower heads worked, but the shower was servicable. Otherwise the facilities were in decent shape.

The town of Bodega Bay is about 1.5 miles away. There's a nice grocery store at the top of the hill and an excellent fish store in The Tides restaurant. Behind The Tides there is a small float with a gate telling unauthorized people to keep out, but the hostess said it's available for anyone to use. It's a good place to tie the dink while you're shopping.

Wildlife is plentiful. Besides the sealions, we saw lots of cormorants, ospreys, herons and other birds. Two restaurants across the street sell clam chowder, crabs, oysters and a few other goodies. They both close at 5:00 pm. There's not a lot to do here, but it's pleasant enough.

As others have mentioned, be sure to sign in at the door of the office in order to avoid a $75 fine for after hours arrival. Also, beware you must block the gate open or you will be unable to return to your boat. The laundry facilities are the worst with 3 of 4 washers nonfunctional and filthy dryers. The restrooms/showers are shamefully run down. Third world countries manage better then this CA operated marina. For $50 per night you can stay here, but I would recommend avoiding it if at all possible. Keep in mind also that the gate key carries a $50 price tag, so don't lose it! Wifi is randomly available, often not working at all, and at the cost of $5 per day.The entry to the harbor after dark is tricky but in a pinch it does provide a sheltered harbor. There are virtually no services here aside from fuel, and the grocery is a couple miles (nice walk) down the road. On the upside if you arrive during the daytime there is great clam chowder to be had and the locals are friendly.

Spud Point Marina, 2014-07-28
Captain: , Newport Beach, CA (360)

Came in late. Office closed but all signage indicates a huge fine if the boat's not registered. Registered the boat, but wanted to leave a check for the moorage, but for all of the signs the cost/foot is not listed. Gates are secured and only a neighboring transient with a key allowed us to exit the dock. Rafting is expected, but we didn't have to deal with it on a Saturday night. Biggest plus is that it's a good stopover if you don't want to deal with the SF bar after a long trip.

Large, full-service marina, 2012-06-16
Captain: , Kirkland, WA (4478)

Substantial docks, well-staffed office, and all the basic services in a well-protected harbor. After weathering continuous strong winds for three days at this marina, we were ready to move on. With town a mile away in Bodega Bay there isn't much at the marina except for the excellent Crab Shack restaurant across the street.

The marina is mix of recreational and working vessels that is quiet at night but can be alive with noisy workers tending to fising vessel maintanence.

All of the basic services are here at a reasonable price.

Good place for an overnight stop, 2012-06-11

easy access to the fuel dock, plenty of guest berthing, and a friendly staff make Spud Point a usual stop for us on our coastal deliveries. Dont miss the crab sandwiches and clam chowder across the street.

Spud Point Marina - Bodega Bay, 2011-09-18
Captain: , Berkeley Marina, CA (178)

Bodega Bay is the northernmost harbor that most SF Bay area sailors would consider going to on a short sailing vacation. It is a beautiful location well worth the effort to get there. I have now been here twice (in 10 years) and both times stayed in Spud Point Marina.

It should first be pointed out that the other marina across the Bay - Porto Bodega Marina - is actually much closer to town for exploring, but they have not been able to accommodate me on either trip. I was told that 40' boats are the largest they will consider. It is about a mile and a quarter to walk around the top of the bay from Spud Point.

Spud Point is a good sized marina with lots of guest space available. The docks are well built and maintained, though the fingers we were placed on for this last visit were totally covered in bird guano. The harbormaster was friendly and accommodating. The only real negative here is that the cost is a bit on the pricey side - in our case it was $40/night for a 47' sailboat.

The facility includes bathroom, showers and laundry machines. The men's shower room was one large space with 4 nozzles that sprayed cold water on you for as long as a button was held in. There was also one handicapped nozzle that kept the water flowing and also featured heated water. This is of course the one to use!

Spud Point also runs a fuel dock with very good prices. SF Bay recreational sailors should take advantage and fill up. No wifi internet to be found, but ATT cell service is good.

As the previous review states it is a good spot to stop and wait out weather, decent docks and power available, no WIFI or internet and a treck to get provisions.

Nice Marina when Coastal Cruising, 2011-02-09
Captain: , Alameda, CA (811)

This marina is a nice respite when cruising up or down the west coast. It is clean, has nice docks, a fairly-priced fuel dock, and two small cafes close-by. But it is a significant walk (1+ mile) to the downtown area where most of the larger restaurants are located.
