Brest Bay Marina is closed for the 2022 season! Please contact us at with any questions or concerns. Thank you for a wonderful year! We look forward to seeing you in 2023!
Welcome to Brest Bay Marina, offering direct access to the beautiful waters of Lake Erie! Centrally located between Detroit and Toledo, Brest Bay Marina makes for a great way to spend the summer boating season. We offer a range of dockage options from variously sized in-water docks, rack and launch, as well as winter storage. In addition to dockage, we offer a service department, marine parts, a retail store, recreation fuel, and bait & tackle. Clearly, Brest Bay Marina is fully equipped to provide all your boating needs. An amenity often overlooked at Brest Bay Marina is the gorgeous beach facing the waters of Lake Erie. Plus, we are located just 10 miles from downtown Monroe, where you’ll find great dining and quaint shops.
Brest Bay Marina was previously owned and operated by Phil Teal, who is well recognized at the marina given his near 50-year tenure. During Phil’s time of Brest Bay Marina ownership, he constructed the rack and launch building, enlarged the marina’s channels, installed the floating docks, expanded the store and shop buildings, and installed seawalls throughout the property. Phil has a knack for entrepreneurship, and we are all thankful for his many years of dedication to bring us the Brest Bay Marina we all know and love. We wish Phil and Kathy many more years of relaxation on Lake Erie!
Towards the end of 2021, Phil decided it was time to pass the reins to new owners. Derek and Suzanne Gillespie purchased Brest Bay Marina and couldn’t be more enthusiastic for this opportunity. They are eager to bring some upgrades to the marina, all while keeping the familiar staff that has the customers returning year after year. Some items on the ‘To Do’ list for the immediate future will be to improve the beach, install a new boat ramp, improve the existing floating docks, offer floating jet ski dock rentals, upgrade and maintain the driveways, cut down on dust throughout the facility, maintain the aquatic weed growth, and upgrade the marina’s software system. While improvements will continue into the future for many years, Derek and Suzanne greatly appreciate any feedback or suggestions you may have to improve Brest Bay Marina. Please reach out to Suzanne directly at , or through Facebook messenger. While Derek and Suzanne are very excited to step into the new ownership of Brest Bay Marina, their two young sons are most thrilled to play on the beach and learn how to catch (and eat) the best walleye around!
