Reviews for Watergate Marina
Good Base to start a river trip, 2015-11-09
Captain: , Orofino, Idaho (321)

In August '15 we started our down river trek to St Louis here. Arrived with some problems and their mechanic fixed it with minimlum of fuss and only delay was parts. They held our truck and trailer for 4 weeks for a reasonable fee. While waiting a few days for parts we visited with some of the locals and enjoyed our visit.



Full service Marina good depth, 2014-09-01
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

This is a very easy and protected marina to access the Airport. Security gate for vehicles and offers mechanical services on site. A car is needed to access stores visit St Paul/Minneapolis. Enterprise car rental will pick up here. On 08-30-14 we had 9' true depth entering channel and at the slip. Verizon poor down in the marina but up on the hill found 2 bars 4g. Wifi weak. Power is true 240 volts 180 degree sine wave.

Been a Slip Customer for 5years now, the marian is tucked back in a nice proteced cove from wind and current. They have 91Oct (No Ethonol) at a good price. It a "Down to Earth" marina with a nice staff. This isnt a "Snooty" marina.
