The docks are old and the storm reeked havoc on some of them. They took us and put us on a dock that survived. Glad to have the tie up.

Best marina on this side of the Mississippi. Had a fantastic time while we stayed there. Amenities were great! New owners were very hospitable. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed at the marina from middle of April for a month due to various repairs that were needed. We found the Dockmaster Thomas to be extremely helpful and very pleasant to deal with. He assisted in getting a great mechanic to help with our hydraulics and was consistently helpful in our never ending changes to departure dates. The docks are a little rough in places but proved to be very secure during the storms we went through. The onsite restaurant is great, and the shop very well stocked with a huge variety of stuff from hardware, alcohol and food. We had no issues with depth of water. Easy access to Beach but if you want to travel further afield a car will be required for the bigger stores.

Very helpful Dockmaster. He called to check our ETA and was on the dock for our arrival. Gave great instructions for arrival to the marina. A quaint area in south Florida.

Best marina in south Florida. Allow live aboard, great staff, cool community of boaters, and you can work on your boat here. Grocery store is well stocked with a small deli and great sandwiches.

Great bunch of people, very friendly and accommodating. Made it in with our 6’ draft about 2 hours before high tide- saw no less than a foot on the way in. Nice family run business, restaurant on site, grocery store with just about everything, nice captains area to hang out and chat with the locals. Pet friendly.
