        I echo Jean’s comments. Our YC visits Twin Dolphins each year as part of our cruise schedule. A great destination, a great facility with excellent amenities, and a great staff.

        We come to Bradenton every year and always stay for a few days at Twin Dolphin Marina. Everything is top-notch and the staff are friendly and helpful. The only difference for us is that this year we extended our stay to a week!

      3. R. Holiman -  August 21, 2013 - 2:03 pm

        Stayed here for a few days in 2010 on our way to the Bahamas. Really, really nice with a great location and great amenities. Only problem was we really didn’t want to leave!

        Stayed at Twin Dolphin again this year for three nights, and as usual, the service was outstanding. The pool and Jacuzzi is a welcome change of pace from cruising and the occasional anchoring out. This is a top-notch facility with very helpful and courteous staff. Will repeat next year.

        We visited Twin Dolphins in April 2012. Stayed for three nights. Wonderful place, friendly and very helpful staff. The pool and grills were great! The staff brings the pump-out hose right to your boat while at your slip. Definitely will return in the future.

        We love Mattison’s Riverside! They have the best Happy Hour in town. $5.00 appetizers (mini pizza, Thai Chicken, Calamari, and lets nots forget the cheap beers! Plus you can’t beat the sunset view. The outside bar is great, and the fire pit looks really fun too, they have lots of heaters too for those cold winter nights. We love this place!!

        Twin Dolphin is a great spot. I may be a live-aboard there by the end of the year. Great location and the near weekly street parties are lots of fun. The town hall and police department are right across the street making it pretty safe.

        Good day, Claiborne;
        Yes, our web site address is the same []; we just did major cosmetics and remodeling. Especially noteworthy is our “Meet the Staff page, the virtual tour and links to weather, navigation/tide charts and others. I’m very proud of the staff we have here and what they have “built” here at TDM. Our club/transient specials are listed on our web site and
        One of our new programs is the “Provisioning Program” with our Mattison’s Riverside restaurant. We have a grocery list to select from so that our boaters, or transients, can “grocery shop” without having to go out to a grocery store. The pricing is at or below grocery store prices, so it has been a big hit with our boaters – especially if they don’t have a lot of room to store food and groceries.
        Thank you again for your contributions to recreational and commercial boating this past year. From our “house” to yours’, have a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for a prosperous New Year.
        Charlie and the Staff,
        Twin Dolphin Marina
