Always a nice experience when staying at this marina. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Plenty of transient dock. Shower, washer/dryer, fuel pump out stations etc. The Marina is a quaint and peaceful place located in the small town of Gulfport FL. which has a bit of a Key West vibe to it. The marina is only a couple of blocks from downtown Gulfport's shops, bars, pier and bay. The town is easily accessible by bicycle or walking.

The docks and shower facilities are clean and well taken care of. We stayed over a week and like the location being close to town. The only problem we had, and it is a big one, was having an important boat part mailed to the marina and they lost it in their offices and never gave it to us. We asked every day and they said it had not been delivered. After we left the marina to move onto our next destination on the loop, they called us and said they found it. Someone had covered it up with "stuff" and they didn't find it until we were gone. After 2 weeks and a promise to mail it to an address we gave them, we find out they did not follow through and it's sitting at the gulf port post office. Now a month has past and we still don't have our part. Beware of having anything mailed to you at this marina.

We stayed in the mooring field which is directly off the beach in the downtown section of town. We only traveled to the Municipal Municipal Marine once to pickup guests. The dingy ride was a very long wet ride (approximately one mile?) We saw no reason to make this trip again even though the bay calmed down during our stay. The staff was very helpful during our short visit. The city dock near the casino has a small dingy dock which we used for the balance of our stay. Lots of restaurants and shops in this area. We would visit again but may opt to anchor just outside of the mooring field as many local visitors did while we were here. The only drawback to using the dingy dock is that it is limited to four hour in a 24 hour period. However I don’t think they enforce this. However, I wouldn’t leave it there overnight. The dock is closed from 3:00am to 7:00am. That would be very easy to enforce. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would return again.

Plenty of room for our catamaran at this mooring field. Took the dinghy in to the dinghy dock and walked a few steps to O'Maddy's for a nice late lunch with music. Only issue is that music carries out to the field and lasts till about 1130.

Great staff who will work with you for what you need. The transient slips are easy to get into and out of. Small laundry facility. The surrounding area of Gulfport is small but always fun - there's a floating boat/dinghy dock that's free for 4 hours at a time; the casino isn't for gambling but more of a community event center; great brunch spots and great local restaurant/bars. The mooring field is a bit out of the way and they're still working out a dinghy dock if you choose to grab a ball (but the staff are more than happy to work with you to accommodate your needs). You will need to contend with the occasional rude power boater who can't help but to speed through the moorings. Sailing is a blast in Boca Ciega Bay where the marina is located. Beware if you anchor out as holding isn't all that good and after a 20+ knt blow, there's often a boat that didn't heed the warning and gets pushed up ashore. Pump outs are included and easy... a boat comes out to you if you're on a ball, or just pull up to the fuel dock in the marina itself. The fuel dock's pumps are unexpectedly fast - so keep that in mind if you're used to taking more than a few minutes to fill your tanks. Internet is fast but does not extend out to the mooring field. The bay is well protected from weather and is extremely easy to get to all of the other places within the area like Pass a grille, the Gulf, St Pete Beach, the ICW, Tampa Bay, etc. There's easy access to the nearby Pinellas Trail if you like biking that spans the width of St Petersburg. If you like kayaking, Clam Bayou is just around the corner. There's a free tram you can call up if you don't want to walk within the city of Gulfport. Excellent and easy access to any marine services you need in the area. Boat.US towboats, coast guard, and FWC are all stationed in or about the marina. There's no shortage of family owned business and smiling faces to service your boat. The minuses only apply if you take a mooring ball. It's a 10-15 minute dinghy ride to the marina; power boaters will wake through the field despite well placed signage; and no wifi when moored. Despite all that, those negatives of the mooring field are balanced by being right in front of downtown Gulfport; moorings are for sailboats only. In any case, they're constantly improving the Marina and a lot of it is new; so who knows, these negatives may have been resolved by the time you get here.

Stayed at the new mooring field. Balls and pendant lines are great. Only, but big issue is the lack of dingy space at the dock. For $24/day would expect room to dock a dingy. At St. Pete they have a dedicated, floating dingy dock that is locked from the shore side for the mooring field.... here you must hope for space.

We stayed for 3 nights on a mooring. The setup of the mooring field is excellent, with comfortable spacing between moorings. The mooring field is very close to town with easy access to city docks with space allocated for dinghies. The Gulfport Municipal Marina is a quite a bit further from the mooring field. The showers are clean and well maintained. We will definitely visit again.

We stayed aboard one week at the marina, a couple days in a slip (fixed dock) then moved over to to the transient floating dock. We were welcomed from driving in to launch our boat to our exit, filling up on gas & water enroute to explore Tampa Bay. All facilities were clean and cared for, used the showers, laundry and the boaters lounge upstairs. There are separate showers for daytrippers vs staying in the marina, those upstairs are modernized and prettier, but all had hot, adjustable water w good showerheads (just need soap dishes). The gates are open in the daytime but locked at night, we felt very safe. Easy walk over to the main Gulfport business district with great restaurants (especially O'Maddys), beautiful seafront with dinghy dock. The marina mooring balls are off there, would have loved to use them, but no powerboats allowed. Loved all the bird life in the marina, visited by a dolphin, herons & egrets, best marina we have ever visited!

Beautiful new mooring field across from a vibrant waterfront. The marina is well-sheltered, clean, in good repair, and boasts a sharp staff and a good little ship's store. Gulfport loses one star from me ONLY because it is one very long row from the mooring field to the shower.

Great Marina! Very friendly and helpful staff! You dock along floating dock, there’s only room for 4-6 boats depending on size, so plan ahead. The floating dock is at a dead end, and it may be a little tight to turn around if you’re on. 45’+. Clean facilities! Some improvements underway which will make it even better.

Paid $37 a night for a slip. The slip ended up being a floating dock (which I prefer anyways), however, there was no saved spot. The second day, my boat was asked to be moved twice. The water connections are nice and easy to access, however, when being moved constantly, you may be moved further away from them and not have any access to the water. I had a strange feeling like I was the only one paying to dock there. There were always locals who would tie up and then leave. I was asked several times if I knew whose boat was in front of me. I think I was fortunate that once I had finally cleaned up my boat and left the marina, I came back the next morning to find my boat in the same spot. But someone did come by my boat saying his had been moved. They lock the marina up after a certain time, for the night, which I like. And, they give you a key to get in and get out. It is fairly easy to access your boat with the way the floating dock is located near the parking lot. I think if I had had a saved spot, and someone would've been on the locals who were coming in and docking, then I would've really enjoyed my stay since I love floating docks. However, I just kept feeling an urgency to get back early or else all the spots would be gone. And, there is a head boat that uses about half of the floating dock to load and unload. They don't have that area marked on how much room he needs, so it can be a little aggravating to know if where you are parked is ok or not. Had the dock space been around $10 a night I would've been alright with the inconveniences, however, these were East Coast Palm Beach prices that I was paying, and over there I get a reserved slip, with people helping to dock whenever I come in. Also, I couldn't find a fish cleaning station in the marina. They may actually have one, but no where I could find.
