Reviews for Treasure Isle Marina
Funky Funky, 2013-10-27

Docks are tired, management is "interesting". Card reader for gate has personality. But if you want to visit TI it's the only show. They charge $10 per day for use of their dinghy dock area, also funky.

It's the bay, off the beaten track, 2013-05-25

What more could you want from a quick trip and overnight stay. Not much here but the view of the bridge, a quick walk will take you to a view of a city that is on so many postcards I couldn't count and the sound of the working harbor of Oakland is in the distance. Romantic, yes. Bring your own wine, a cigar and a close friend. Stay up late to watch the lights and wake up late since there is no rush to get home.

Convenient to downtown, 2012-08-31

We stayed here a week. It is convenient to downtown. Bus stops right in front every 20 min. Great view. Pretty funky however. Docks are reasonable; lost power for a few hours but whole island was out; rest rooms better than expected; only shopping is convenience store.

Expensive, polluted, and falling apart... but a great view, 2011-10-05

I was at this marina from Aug 2010-June 2011. Of course, the views from Treasure Island are second to none. Unfortunately, this place is being driven to the ground by the current owner, Almar Marinas. The literally docks are breaking apart. On one my first outings, while coming into my slip and using the normal amount of prop walk, I literally snapped my finger pier right in half. Later in the spring, waves tore the finger pier on the other side apart. The docks are so janky that I nearly fell in multiple times getting off the boat, as did my neighbor.

I saw two blatant acts of water pollution, both of which I feel are attributable, in part, to the marina. One was a diesel fuel spill by a sailor who filled his fuel tank in the marina and had a leak. I inquired with the harbor master if he was aware that half of the water surface area was filled with diesel fuel. He said, "Oh, I thought it was just a little spill." I asked him why he didn't put booms around it right after it happened and he said, "The Coast Guard took our booms to fight the big oil spill." I presume that he was talking about the Cosco Busan way back in 2007 (it was 2010). The fact that a huge marina owner, also the one that runs the California "Clean Marinas" program, has an empty box of oil booms is criminal (I inspected the empty dock-boom box with my own eyes). At that point, I gave the harbor master the option of me calling the Coast Guard, or he could do it himself. He obviously chose the latter.

On another occasion, I walked past a boat that had a temporary sump pump running, pumping oil out into the Bay. I ran over to the harbor master to ask if he was running that pump and why he was pumping oil into the Bay. He ran back to the pump to turn it off and apologized. Apparently it was a derelict boat. While I understand that he was just taking care of business, for crissakes, throw some bilge absorbers in there the day before pumping out.

Lastly, the gate was unlocked for a few days because the card reader broke. The harbor master did not think this was at all a big deal, and replaced the card reader with a similar ancient card reader, which broke again, as short while later. Almar seems completely hesitant to invest a single dollar into this place.

Boating wise, while this place offers a great staring point for some of the Bay's best attractions, good luck getting out on low tide. You can try and hug the wharf upon entering and leaving but be warned, I hit a large piece of concrete with my keel that left a couple of big gouges in it (see the Active Captain hazard that's marked there).

This place has the 10th highest berthing rates in the Bay Area, according to the 2010 Coyote Point Marina Survey. And for what?

Treasure Island Marina from a former berther, 2007-08-28
Captain: , New Port Richey, Fl (231)

Having spent 5 years at T.I. Marina this is my summary. One of the best boating locations in the Bay Area. This is the old Navy Marina with old floating wooden docks. Chock full of nostalgia with the Clipper ship hangers (Pan Am Airways) in view and remnants of the 1939 Worlds Fair. The marina has no fuel dock but should have a pumpout by now (planned in 2005). A new marina is on the drawing boards. Within view is the new Oakland / S.F. bridge. Clipper Cove can be shallow so stay in the channel (along the north shore) coming and going if your vessel draws much (5/6 feet). The marine is cardkey gated so if you plan to visit let the Harbormaster at the marina know in advance.
