Reservations went flawlessly, radioed upon approach and took fuel. Josh, the dockhand was quick and very helpful, Then Parker came from the office to give slip assignment and met me at our slip. Beautiful new floating docks and very easily manageable with larger fairways. Cathy in the office was helpful when I inquired about local places of interest and even offer use of marina vehicle. The highlight was being in the salt water pool. Can’t say enough good about this marina. It may seem a bit off the bay but the 1.5 miles up the Indian Creek is serene and picturesque. We will return!!

Marina Response:
Thanks so much for the review. We will be adding a wireless repeater in the near future to hopefully improve the internet signal out on the new docks. Hopefully, it will be much improved for your next visit. Hope to see you again!
