Testimonial

Congratulations on the award of five golden anchors to Soldiers Point Marina. It's a well deserved award. Having stayed at many marinas during our east coast cruises, yours stands out in all categories and will remain our summer base of operations as long as you can accommodate us

The bathroom facilities are legendary among the cruising frarernity and the availability of assistance when mooring our 46 ft cat in high winds is both rare and much appreciated. Topped off with two excellent restaurants, Soldiers Point remains our favourite marina.
