River Dunes Marina is rated “Without Peer”

A recent visitor to Grace Harbor posted the following review on Active Captain:

“Without peer, River Dunes is the finest private yacht club open to the public on the east coast. Marina is state-of-the-art with a yacht basin that was once farmland. Guests enjoy all the privileges of members including dining, pool, fitness center and bar. Courtesy car provided to nearby Oriental. J.C. Cappleman is a veteran sailor who makes guests feel like members. It is a must stop, just off the ICW.”

Thanks for the five stars and the kind words, Capt. Jeffrey from Windemere, FL!
