The Fish House Art Center & Marina is located on the waterfront of the Manatee Pocket in the Village of Port Salerno, Florida, just five miles south of downtown Stuart.
The marina offers dockage to vessels up to 55ft in length. Boaters are welcome to use the bathrooms, showers, and laundry facilities located in the art center.
Port Salerno has 14 restaurants and bars within a couple of blocks. Next door is the Twisted Tuna, the largest restaurant on the Treasure Coast, and voted #1 four years in a row. Other amenities including groceries, pharmacies, hardware stores, West Marine, and other marine facilities are only a short distance away.
Our marina is home to The Fish House Art Center, which hosts multiple resident artists' studios that includes ceramic and pottery, fine art painters, photographers, a lampwork artist, a fiber artist, School of Textile Arts, stained glass, fairy hair, and a weaver. The resident artists work in their studios year round. The public is welcome to watch them work and purchase their creations. Some studios offer a variety of workshops that are open to the public.
When we arrived there was no dockmaster available and had to call them to find out where to dock. Then we were told to tie up to the end of a pier not an actual slip and there were large wires that had to be crawled over every time getting on and off the boat. This is a very cramped marina with no space or privacy. And all the slips are live aboard locals. When we went to use the showers there was only 1 and it the inside wall was decaying and falling apart with no AC. Just not a fun experience at all. In addition we have 2 small dogs and boards on dock had so much space between we had to carry to keep dogs from falling through.
