Sea Gate Marina guards the Waterway’s western banks, just north of the Core Creek bridge. This facility has a well sheltered harbor, but we’ve noted some thin depths here in the past.
Stopped in for diesel a couple times. Nice, friendly place, competitive prices. One concern – chatty young dock-hand is inexperienced and spent most of his time working on chatting up my teenage daughter and her friend, who later described this young man as “creepy”. Seagate would be best served letting this chatty fellow mow the grounds, plant some trees, and scrape some barnacles until he can develop a better customer persona. I still churn some mud when turning around in there (should have used a spring line from the dock, but didn’t), and I draft 3-1/2″. I heard a cruiser on Ch16 turn away from Seagate because they reported 5ft he draws 5-1/2. Great place otherwise, it looks like they’ve beefed-up their fuel dock with better pilings and planking. They keep on improving.
