Stayed at the north dock. Frank the dock master is top notch. Doesn’t get any better and he went out of his way more than once when I had to change plans because of weather. The bad: SHORT fixed docks. Need lengthened floating docks. 4x6 posts at the end of finger piers either damaged or missing. Mine was loose and someone almost fell. Pelican hook for dockline on outer piling missing. My dockline slid down into barnacles. Wi-Fi only in boaters lounge. When people are watching tv or yelling into their cell phones, it makes it difficult to work. C’mon St. Pete. You spend millions on a pier but too cheap to extend wifi throughout the marina. More good: good shower, good security, nice lighted outdoor meeting tent next to lounge but Wi-Fi won’t even reach out there.
staff was great. very efficient taking care of our fueling and pump out on arrival and moving to assigned slip. Vert friendly. However....the slip we were assigned to was across the dock from a monster catamaran used for a daily ferry to key west. They had their fender lines tied across their boarding ramp and the dock making a trip hazard for us older folks and I have a bad knee. When the crew started up the engines in the morning we were gassed big time. their exhaust was right in front of our bow. They let it run for about 10 minutes and shut down for boarding. A little before 8 am they restarted and gassed us again. Not to mention the noise on the dock from passengers boarding. One complete side of A dock is dedicated to large tour boats where we were docked. No fun. all the marinas in south Florida are pricey and you should expect a nice facility. There is no boaters lounge, 1 afterthought shower for each men and women, bathrooms that are open to the public and just a ratty looking building next to the fuel dock. We left the next day, went to a marina about 100 yards away and had the same price with top notch, first class accomodations. I would not recoment this marina and not return.
