This was a great spot to hide from hurricane Elsa. The docks are great and the location is awesome. The dock master was waiting for us to grab lines and help tie up. The only negative is this set of docks has no power or water hook ups.

In all the years of cruising I have never experienced such a poorly operated Marina. My experience began with a small tour boat, that operated out of the Marina cutting me off while I was beginning my approach to the slip that was assigned and “reserved” for me. It should be noted that there were many additional dock slips empty and available for other Marina boats, none in this area were assigned to the group of various types of aquatic rental equipment at the other end of the dock. Although we tried to get the boat operator’s attention she ignored us, tied the boat and proceeded to unload her passengers. Only when she was done did she acknowledge us and finally move. From there, it only got better. Our slip was next to a 44 ft million $ yacht with what appeared to be a couple of people here to give a seminar or such at somewhere near the Marina. Later in the day they came back with about 20 young, clean cut, well dressed people for a tour of the boat. They left and all came back later, that evening, for a party. They played music (much rap style) incredibly loud and continuously until well after 0300 in the AM. We went grocery shopping in the AM and saw them leaving the dock in the early afternoon. Then to to add insult to injury, later in the day while my wife and I were trying to enjoy some time there with some wine, one of the rental boats, also from the other end of the Marina dock, pulled in with a bunch of people with blaring music, who objected to our request for them to move out of the slip next to us, to down where they rented the boat from and that these were Marina spaces, which we paid for. After a lot of words, particularly from a young female entitled big mouth and an escalating situation we got them to leave. Throughout all of this the only involvement of anyone from the “so called “Marina” was upon arrival and only after the first encounter. Not only does this Marina not provide normal services, like showers, heads or pump outs, any kind of security or controls on what’s happening there, they they ignore ignorant and obnoxious behaviors at a cost similar to the St Petersburg Municipal Marina at which we’ve had great experiences with their complete Marina services and desiring to please professional staff. This Marina was a total waste of money!!!

We had a great one night stay. So much to do around the marina and staff was very helpful. Some limited facilities (no showers) which we were aware of at the time of booking were outweighed by the location.

We booked into a slip at the Tampa Convention Center. The docks here are nice floating concrete docks and you are just steps away from the Trolley and many restaurants. The issue here is a lack of security. We've been here two nights and had people board our boat around 2:00 AM both nights. Night one was a group of 4 young men, who we think were trying to steal items from the center console beside us and jumped on our swim platform. Last night, a couple decided that it would be fun to have the girl lie on the bow of our boat for a photo shoot. (our main bedroom is in the bow). There is no security gate, not even a sign saying private and the dock is shared with paddle boats, rental boats, booze cruise, and tiki boats. The dockmaster is said that the Convention Center is in charge of security, when we called Security last night, they said they would "send someone to check on the docks." We were up for over an hour calming back down, and we never saw them. So, nice facilities, but poor security. There are other marinas in the area, not quite as convenient, but I'd give them some consideration.

There are many good things about this marina. The staff is great and deserves 5+ stars. The marina is reasonably priced for such a strategical location. The facilities are well kept. Tampa has done a good job of policing the area and while caution is still required I seldom feel threatened. I hate giving this only a 3 star rating after all it is a downtown location and you can't blame a dog for having fleas but do not expect to get any sleep as this place. It is loud!! Otherwise, if you come to party, or do the night life thing, or as we do to add a little fun to a business meeting and don't mind forgoing sleep this is the place. We'll come again and after we pull out find a nice secluded anchorage where we can saw some logs.

Making my reservation there was no feed back regarding power or no power. The site did not show docks with power full and docks without power available and no cost difference for non powered docks. Docks have no security and no shower no dedicated restrooms. The price is not reflective of services available. Location is central and convenient to many entertainment venues.

Docks are clean and orderly. No security however in spite of significant activity downtown there were very few visitors other than those for the vendors on the doc. People from the paddle boat rental and a tour boat operator helped us dock as there was a pretty good crosswind blowing us off the dock. Never saw the Dockmaster or any one official or in charge. Went to the Dockmaster's office/booth and no one was there so I Left a card. We just had to guess at how things operate and where things were. It would be good to have a welcome packet with some information, guide to the area and riverwalk etc. I am sure some local restaurants would throw in some coupons to get you there. Still, overall a good experience.

Josh and the guys are great on the dock. Pros: (1) A Lot of Action and Entertainment. (2) Nice Concrete Floating Docks. Cons: (1) A Lot of Late Night Noise from Entertainment. (2) No Marina Services

Excellent marina! It is nice to be able to reserve a slip. Dock hands are friendly and Dockmaster is very accommodating. Good protection, an occasional swell from wind and boat traffic, but not uncomfortable at all. Music plays till 3 am on the weekend and NE wind can blow it right to your boat. But other than that, the vibe is very enjoyable!
