Good, helpful staff. We were on a reasonably priced mooring right off town of Gulfport, which is a nice little place with lots of restaurants and bars. Dinghy dock in town was just rebuilt when we left. We dinked about 1.3 NM into marina to go ashore. Boca Ciega Bay has a bit of fetch so can get a little choppy in a breeze, but not much current so boat rides into waves. Weekends and holidays can also produce some chop from boat traffic. Enjoyed our stay. If we get back around this way will likely come back here.
