We stayed at Half Moon Bay for 10 days in May on our Great Loop trip. Dockmaster Steve is a legend of hospitality and he did everything he could possibly do to make our stay comfortable. The folks who keep their boats there all season were also very friendly and helpful. We spent three days in New York City. The train ride into the city was efficient and beautiful, re-tracing our route up the Hudson along the shore. We stayed in a hotel in the city and explored until late on the third day when we caught a late train back. We then rented a car and visited West Point and hiked up to the top of Bear Mountain. From the top of Bear Mountain (also accessible by car) you can see NYC on a clear day. There are also numerous stores and restaurants a short walk away in Croton. Apple Barn looks like a small store from the outside but they had most of the provisions we needed. This stop and Steve’s hospitality were highlights of our Great Loop adventure.
Docks are well maintained and quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed the museum. Dockmaster and dockhand were very helpful. Great stop!
Lovely place with helpful people who really love boaters.
The dock hands were great. Troy advised us on the best approach and got us safely secure on the dock. Ship store went well beyond the call of duty when our daughter’s lost phone was turned in to them and they mailed it to our next port of call. Wow! Thank you Heidi and Sunshine. Y’all are the best! What a nice bunch of folks. Showers were hot and clean. Docks are parallel with the channel so easy docking with the current. Thanks wonderful team. Check out the walking tour of Beaufort from Janet’s walking tours. Janet is an amazing tour guide. We learned a lot.
We really enjoyed using the loaner bikes to explore the island. Special place. Great team!
First class all the way. We are so glad we stopped here. We came in at +2.87’ tide we saw depths of at least 6.2’. The shallowest water was at marker 18 and 17 and near 13. The Channel is well marked. Indian Key has an anchorage at the start of the channel if your draft dictates a high tide entrance/exit. Adam took our reservations and was very kind and helpful and we were greeted by Dennis who caught our lines. There was plenty of depth at the sturdy concrete docks and the grounds and facilities are top notch. We enjoyed swimming in the pool and we took two private tours with Tour the Glades one was a kayak tour and the other a motor boat tour. Don’t miss this beautiful marina, wonderful staff, and interesting area.
This is a beautiful spot and one of the most protected locations in Marathon. We made an afternoon crossing from Everglades City and the Dockmaster, Carla stayed late on a Sunday evening to help with our lines. Carla enlisted the help of several other boaters and we were tied up in fast order. It was very windy during our stay and we were glad to be in a protected slip. It’s not fancy but it is clean and the staff is friendly. There is a beautiful pool with a poolside bar and restaraunt and we had dinner at the restaraunt which featured Greek food that was delicious.
Excellent! The office staff, dock master, and dock hands are some of the nicest and most helpful people you’ll ever meet. A dock hand ran out to catch our lines when we arrived. We were doing laundry and the dockmaster stayed late to drive us back to our dock. We also enjoyed a delicious dinner at the restaurant. All the servers had masks and the tables were spread out. There is also a great outdoor eating area and a deli. The rest room and laundry room were clean and the new front loading machines worked well. We were at the end of the dock closest to the restaraunt and we loved hearing the live music from our boat. It was not too loud and it ended at a reasonable hour. The docks are sturdy and well maintained. Even with a strong wind this is a very protected marina and we barely moved. If you can possibly stay over a Thursday night there is a great farmers market on Friday mornings. We got delicious shrimp, cheeses, and veggies. What more could a boater want.
