Not worth getting shot and killed over. Mutiple shootings, crazy patrons, rude marina staff, failing infrastructure.
Never again. Worst staff ever. My wife and I have been on the water for 35 years and have never been spoken to by a staff memeber let alone a member of city staff. Save yourself the strees and go anywhere else.
You will be disapointed in Boot Key Harbor if you are looking for a resort atmosphere and amenities. The restroom and shower facilities are basic concrete buildings. There is no pool or bar/ restaurant. (Although there are several in the area, either within walking distance or a short cab ride.) What you will find is a vibrant comunity of live aboards and semi transient cruisers. The mooring field is very proffesionaly run. We spent 3 nights here waiting on a weather window to get to Key West, and when the skies cleared, we didn't want to leave! Everyone we came across was friendly and helpfull.
