Testimonial

This has to be one of the best marinas we have visited along the eastern seaboard. Great facilities and terrific food outlets ranging from a wonderful a la carte restaurant, a more sedate restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to a gourmet food outlet called The Boat Shed which is open from 8-5 , 7 days a week and provides wonderful snacks and coffee. We've been to all three (admit, we live in Soldiers Point) and can't fault any for food service or position. On top of that, an extremely well looked after Marina with all the facilities a voyaging boatie would be looking for. Magnificent!
