Nice People, No amenities, Channel is shallower than reported. I saw 2.5 at low. Poor location.

Docks are in great conditions Showers were in great condition both toilet and shower with hot water with no problem. Shore power and fresh water also easily accessible and in great conditions. Only two things I would have liked to have that I didn’t. the first is more restricted access for non guess the Marina Is easily accessible by anyone my first night I had people fishing right behind my dock it prevented me from sitting out with my wife for a private conversation also could be a safety issue. 2- I never met anyone from the facility I got there luckily there was a fisherman getting back from chartering his boat so figure he knows everyone he told me where to park and also said he was gonna let the dock master know I was there. The next day came and no one came to say hi. It kind of didn’t matter I did my own thing but could have been an issue if shore power and water were restricted or if that gentleman wouldn’t have been nice enough to give the shower/restroom access combination. Now would I stay again definitely yes. 👌🏽🛥💨

Just want to say stayed here for a week, and absolutely enjoyed every moment. Stayed here years ago before it got hit by hurricane now the place is even better! Place was immaculate, Hunter was a joy to work with very professional and Pleasant to talk to. Talk to Bill The dockmaster on the phone very pleasant. Jimmy dock attendant was very helpful and always willing to help. He even took our boat trailer from our car and brought It to the trailer parking lot and locked it up for us, And then brought me back the key. Everybody from the bait store and the customers at the marina were all very pleasant to hang out with. We will definitely be back soon!

We never stayed there. Du to bad weather we never put our boat in the water. I sent 2 emails to Bill the dock master telling him our situation and reason for not using their dock and I never got a reply, that was Monday and today is Friday and still never heard anything.

We stayed at Caloosa Cove for 4.5 months. The marina offers a convenience store and fuel. The marina is clean and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The access to a restaurant, pool, and a beach were extra perks. Above all- the staff was great. Hunter, Bill, and Tommy answered all our questions and were very helpful. We appreciate all their help and were at ease knowing they were keeping a watchful eye on our boat when we were gone. Thanks!

We enjoyed our stay at Caloosa Cove. The area was great and people were very friendly. There was a restaurant at the marina and beach/pool nearby which made the stay very comfortable. We never had any issues that were not addressed. Hunter, Bill, and Timmy were so helpful at the marina. Great people. Made us feel right at home. We loved our stay at Caloosa Cove.

We’ve stayed here a few times and every time we love it. The staff are very friendly and eager to help in any way. The other boat owners are just as helpful and friendly as well! We are considering keeping our boat there during the winter months. We will stay here every time we are in the area or passing through!

Staff was wonderful! Docks are to high and boarding was a safety issue. Have no pump out and every other marina around the area the pump outs were out of order. We paid $55 to get a pump out at Caloosa Cove Marina. No laundry at the marina. Not protect from west winds. Nothing close to this marina except a good Cuba Restaurant! Most expensive moorage we paid since starting the Great Loop in Saint Joseph MI. Again, the staff was wonderful.

Staff and premises was nice with easy access to the channel. Only disappointment was them not lifting our boat off the trailer as they have done in previous years. We had to find a boat ramp to launch several miles away.

Came in for overnight on a 40ft catamaran. Excellent place to stop. Service is first rate. Richard and Bill couldn’t have been more helpful. Great restaurant on premises as well. Highly recommend.

Thanks to Bill & Rich for answering all of our questions while booking and help at the dock! They were great and so was the stay. As we were told by them, it's recommended that you arrive and leave at a higher tide if your draft is over 4ft. :) Looking forward to next year!

We rented a house on Iroquois for the month of March and brought along our boat - unfortunately, the state began dredging our canal and we had to find another option quickly. Caloosa Cove was great - they were able fit us into their schedule for a slip for the whole month. Everyone there was really nice and helpful!

Richard the dock master was great. Fuel prices (diesel) were very good. Docks are not floating docks but require you to tie stern to. Habana restaurant onsite is very good. Restrooms and showers are basic at best. Pictures make it look like the pool and adjacent amenities are a part but they are off limits to the boaters.

Our 50 foot boat draws 3.5 feet and our readings got down to 3. This would be a great spot for a smaller boat. New pedestals where great. Lots of manatees were cool too.

The marina may be good for small center consoles but if you're got a big boat, consider our experience. 1. Canal is not 4-5' deep as claimed, hit 2.9' close to the fuel dock. Granted it was low tide. 2. The fuel crew handed me diesel pump when I asked for gasoline. Luckily, I caught the mistake after dispensing only 2 gallons into our gasoline tanks. 3. Shore power kept tripping GFCI, so didn't have shore power for the stay. Next time, I'll just stay on the hook and save $$.

We have been here two months now and absolutely love the people and location! With everything within walking distance such as the Marine Hardware, Habanos Restaurant, Bait and Tackle shop, Safari Bar, and Resort with pool, and a beach with barbecue and chairs. All of this within 100 yards from our boat.
