#6 Charlevoix City Marina – Charlevoix, Michigan

Beautiful, modern, clean marina. Beautiful shoreside facility. Fixed docks. The town of Charlevoix is fun and interesting and right there! Grocery store is a block away. It's a great stop. The only downside is no pump out, but it is available at the marina next door.

#5 Bald Head Island Marina – Bald Head Island, South Carolina

Nice, first class marina. Pump out at fuel dock. Big slips. Plenty of easy ins and outs. But the main attraction is the island. Gorgeous.


#4 Vero Beach Municipal Marina – Vero Beach, Florida

Like a lot of municipal marinas, it's rustic in need of a facelift. The big selling point is its accessibility to the city of Vero Beach. They have a FREE city bus system that will take you almost anywhere, including a Publix and West Marine. It also takes you to the beach.

#3 Annapolis Landing Marina – Annapolis, Maryland

It's a great marina. It's in Annapolis! That's a winning combination. Clean, modern restrooms and showers. Pump out at fuel dock. Loaner car. Swimming pool. Water taxis to take you to downtown Annapolis. So much to see and do. Gotta love A.L.M.

#2 Whitaker Point Marina – Orieintal, North Carolina

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Beautiful clubhouse with super-clean showers. Loaner car to get you into Oriental. No pump out. Very interesting fixed docks. First class all the way. Peaceful and restful.

#1 Ortega Landing Marina – Jacksonville, Florida

Everything is perfect at Ortega Landing from the exquisite clubhouse and facilities, to big slips with wide thoroughfares, to nearby shopping (Publix, West Marine) to being in the cool city of Jacksonville. And the price is right too. Luxury amenities (pool) at a very reasonable price. The marina value meter is pinned all the way to 'awesome'.
