We are cruising the Gulf Coast in a 40 foot trawler and landed at Shalimar Yatch Basin for a few days. The owners, Steve and Paulette Peterson are fantastic. The harbormaster, Vito, insisted on securing our boat and would not let us help. Great guy. They have a courtesy car totally at your disposal and will guide you to any place in town. Grocery stores and restaurants are nearby. They assigned us a covered slip in beautiful and clear water. Showers and restroom were clean and comfortable. We highly recommend this marina.
