MARINAS - ALABAMA

 

Anchor Bay Marina is located on Casaway Island Road, Eclectic on the beautiful Lake Martin. The marina has covered wet slips up to 40’ in length and a dry stack storage facility. The Ship’s Store will have what you need and if you are in need of a mechanic, well, there are also certified marine mechanics at the marina. Anchor Bay is the only privately held service marina on the lake. Be sure to come here when you’re hungry because we highly recommend their restaurant Dockside for some great dining.

 

Writer’s note: Aquapalooza, the world's largest boat party, is a yearly signature event on Lake Martin. Suntan.com was there this year along with about 5,000 boats and 25-35,000 people to watch this free event that highlighted Alan Jackson along with the Carter twins from CMT, and many more talents. We were set up with our canopy next to Sinclair's restaurant, which is always our favorite place to stop over to eat at.

 

Brown's Creek Sailing Marina is located on Browns Creek Road in Guntersville on Lake Guntersville and has been in business for forty years. It is Alabama’s largest sailboat marina and has over 190 spaces for wet and dry storage. Storage includes electricity, city water, wireless internet, trash, pump-out and use of facilities. The marina hosts an active sailing club that has social activities, instructions and competition. There are four restrooms with hot showers and a grassy beach area for launching small boats and catamarans. The trailer launch ramp is 6’ deep and there is enough parking over 75 cars. Across the causeway is a shopping center with a grocery store, ABC store and restaurants.

 

Writer’s Note: Lake Guntersville is one of the largest and cleanest lakes on the Tennessee River and with very little level fluctuation of less than 2 ½’. The fishing is some of the best in the country and they hold many fishing tournaments.

 

Goose Pond Marina is a full service facility located on the Tennessee River. They offer wet slip and dry storage rental and transients are always welcome too. The marina’s mechanics are OMC and Mercruiser trained and certified. The gas dock has snacks, gas, diesel fuel, oil, fuses, switches, and other items needed by the boater. They offer transients slips that have water and electricity hook-ups with a waste pumping station. While there you can stock up on fishing tackle and find out where the fish are biting at the Bait & Tackle Shop.

 

Writer’s Note: Goose Pond Colony has two stunning 18-hole championship golf courses that were rated 4 stars by Golf Digest in 2000-2001. There are also lakeside cottages, a lodge and a waterfront campground. The Docks Restaurant is a favorite place to eat here in Scottsboro not matter if you’re driving over or boating over. The sunset is fabulous to watch while you’re eating dinner at the restaurant, whether sitting on the patio or watching it from inside through large picture windows.

 

Homeport Marina is located in Gulf Shores on the Gulf of Mexico. This marina with concrete floating docks, provides yacht serves, 76 wet slips and transit dockage for up to a 100’ boat. Gas pumps with Valvtect marine gasoline & diesel is available. The Dock Store stocks food and carries all a boater’s needs. LuLu’s Restaurant is ready to serve you a nice hot meal. Phone and cable service is available along with wireless internet. Additionally they offer 24-hour restrooms, laundry and showers.

 

Writer’s Note: LuLu’s is located on a canal with open walls and is owned by Jimmy Buffet’s sister. It has a wonderfully fun atmosphere with beach music, bands, volleyball and great food. The gulf shores have some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in all of North America.
