We are cruising the Gulf Coast and waiting for a weather window to make our crossing. We ended up at C-Quarters to wait out the weather. Very friendly staff and very accommodating. The grocery store is right across the street plus they have a good inventory in their store. Several restaurants nearby. Restrooms are good and near the dock along with a laundry room. The front of their building is a big covered porch with rocking chairs, tables and a porch swing. There is always something happening on the porch including great happy hours. Rates are a $1.00 a foot. We highly recommend this friendly marina.
We are cruising the Gulf Coast in a 40 foot trawler and landed at Shalimar Yatch Basin for a few days. The owners, Steve and Paulette Peterson are fantastic. The harbormaster, Vito, insisted on securing our boat and would not let us help. Great guy. They have a courtesy car totally at your disposal and will guide you to any place in town. Grocery stores and restaurants are nearby. They assigned us a covered slip in beautiful and clear water. Showers and restroom were clean and comfortable. We highly recommend this marina.
We have spent 4 wonderful days here at Bow Tie. Doug Shearman and his crew have done anything we asked of them. We are waiting for a part for our Perkins engine and he has been most helpfull. One of his crew took us shopping for some needed items and hardly would take a tip. The facilities are spotlessly clean and the store has basic supplies. Diesel cost one of the lowest prices we have paid. Having the Coast Guard next door helps make for a good night sleep. Wonderful southern hospitality. Capt. Doug is a delight to talk to and has a million stories. We highly recommend Bow Tie Marina.
