    Stayed here on May 24 2011. They no longer have showers. No laundry, lounge, showers or boater facilities. You get cable, electric and water for $1.75. Nice and close to bascule bridge that only opens hourly.

    Stayed there 3/17.  Nice people.  Showers are in a public restroom and not available after 5PM. Only about a half mile walk thru a very safe neighborhood to a grocery, general hardware store, and a West Marine.  Also, about a block from the marina is a shop that sells model boats with some of the best you have ever seen on display.

    We stayed at the Bridge Tender Marina last summer and were pleased with the service. It is immediately south of the bridge and we very easily cast off and made the first opening heading north the next morning. Great food at the restaurant at that marina.
