Moment of Zen, a 36-foot by 15-foot powercat, thoroughly enjoyed a four-day stay at Bayview Plaza during March 2022. The only reason for the four stars rather than five is that although good solid padded pilings were recently added to the nice long finger piers, the distance from the boat to the piers themselves required a ramp. I was told the wood on the finger piers would soon be replaced, so the hope is that they will be reconstructed to overcome the new gap.
Otherwise, it was a delightful stay. Easy walk to the beach across the street. Restaurants, drug store and Public are an easy walk. Nearby neighborhoods offer good and low-traffic dog-walking.
The location is very well-protected at the end of Big McPherson bayou. When entering from the ICW on lower Boca Ciega Bay, be sure to hug the starboard shoreline carefully. If heading north, don't turn west toward the entrance until you reach half-way between the bridge and red "26." Then trace the shoreline back and inside to find plenty of find plenty of water. The easiest way to see the course is to use Navionics sonar charts.
