Carmen Holden - Guest Services Manager


"After working in the travel industry for fifteen years, it was time for a sea change. The marina is such a happy place to come each day, everyone is so friendly. I'm thoroughly enjoying all the challenges and exciting opportunities that come past my desk. I've tried my hand at just about everything, including reversing a boat trailer down the boat ramp, now that's an achievement in my book. Make sure you pop your head into the office and say hi."

Testimonial

I have to say, that even in the short time I have been there, I am more impressed than I thought I might be with Soldiers Point Marina and the professional 6 star service you offer.

During the recent storms, the ability to check my boat via your webcam camera was invaluable. As I had only just moved "The Omen" to the marina, I still only had light docking lines securing the boat. When I called, late at night, you went out of your way to place extra lines to secure it in the strong wind, and I was able to watch you do it, via the web cam. It eased my concerns, for this I sincerely thank you for your care and attention to my pride and toy.

Your service also extends to personal attention and assistance with loading, unloading, valet parking and the ability to have ice delivered to my boat, this is service I have never experienced at all the other marinas in Port Stephens I have berthed at over the years.

Soldiers Point Marina is truly a 6 star marina, I just wish I had moved "The Omen" there sooner.
