You will be disapointed in Boot Key Harbor if you are looking for a resort atmosphere and amenities. The restroom and shower facilities are basic concrete buildings. There is no pool or bar/ restaurant. (Although there are several in the area, either within walking distance or a short cab ride.) What you will find is a vibrant comunity of live aboards and semi transient cruisers. The mooring field is very proffesionaly run. We spent 3 nights here waiting on a weather window to get to Key West, and when the skies cleared, we didn't want to leave! Everyone we came across was friendly and helpfull.
Perfectly adequate as a place to tie up your boat. Most transients are placed side tied along D dock. Power, water, and pumpout are available. The pumpout can be done right at the dock, which is handy.Docks are not gated, so you get a lot of tourists looking at boats. This is also the main dinghy dock so there is a lot of traffic from the anchorages. Shower facilities are simple and communal, not private. The best thing this place has going for is its location. You are just steps from everything Key West has to offer!
