Reviews for Turtle Cay Marina
underrated , 2017-05-12
Captain: , canyon lake ca (10)

This is a really nice marina. The new owner Juaquin and his staff are amazing. We pulled in to get ice and beer for our trip to San Blas. Unfortunately the store is not up and running yet so Juaqine ran to town for us and and returned with 3 cases of beer and 2 bags of ice. The property is awesome and the Hardrock hotel is in the process of being built. You can now reach them on channel 16. All major credit cards accepted. Tell them Good Vibrations sent you.

little known secret, 2016-03-03
Captain: , St. Georges, Grenada (48)

The entrance to the bay can be intimidating but if you set waypoint from the Bauhaus chart you will not have a problem. Once inside the channel the water is calm. They do not monitor a radio but a soon as you are in the channel someone will direct you to a slip. Or you can go to the fuel dock with fenders to port. There is a slight surge at the docks during tide changes. There is a small restaurant / bar, laundry, showers.
The same owner has just started to construct a 300 room 5 star resort facing the beach. The scenery here is spectacular.

too rolly and narrow, 2014-11-14
Captain: , Sidney, BC (167)

Entrance to bay is very narrow with reefs and breaking waves on either side. We never planned to approach marina. There were 8 foot rollers coming into bay. Our 65 ft ship felt too large to go close. And anchoring was impossible with the swell and wave action.

We went out and west to anchor south of Isla Culli. Much better anchorage location.

Half finished marina, 2014-08-16
Captain: , San Francisco (70)

When we were here in May 2014, it appeared that completion of the marina had stopped. Navigation buoys were not installed. Club house was partially complete. The entrance is intimidating from a distance, but not too bad in moderate swell. I would never attempt a night entrance. There was a little restaurant. We heard that the marina has terrible swell, but it was calm when we were there. It is isolated. Plan to pay in US cash. The closest working ATM was near Colon.

Pleasant Stop in Calm Weather, 2013-03-07
Captain: , St. Petersburg, FL (346)

This inexpensive marina was equipped to dispense large quantities of diesel. A boat bath with the free water and restaurant meal were terrific after 2 months in the San Blas. No facilities ashore other than the open air restaurant. We had significant surge at dock with 5 %u2013 7 foot north to northeasterly seas outside and would not want to be here for any more significant weather conditions.

Good stop if seas less than 4 meters, 2013-01-26
Captain: , Beaver Island, MI (291)

Concrete docks in good condition (pilings unprotected). No facilities but manager "Yogi" very helpful and speaks english.
Surge if big seas, can be very bad. We thought our cleats would come off. Good location between canal and San Blas. Good fuel
