Floating or Fixed we have slips to accommodate all varieties and lengths of vessels including super beam catamarans.

Located just 90 miles North of Key West, Rose Marina offers deep water and direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and local inter-coastal waterways. Nestled in Factory Bay we offer fixed wooden and floating concrete docks all of which have water, power, free WiFi and free waste pump out. Our dockmaster and waterfront staff are available everyday from 7 am to 6 pm to assist in any way.
The Marina as we know it today has taken many forms through the years. Opening its doors in 1969, the Marina's original name was the Marco River Marina. It consisted of a parking lot, a small ship's store and a wooden T shaped dock extending from it. Years later Bill Rose bought the marina from its original owners. At which time he changed the name to Rose Marco River Marina and began using the Compass Rose (a symbol also used by his other companies) as the Marina's logo.
In December of 2010 we formally changed our name to Rose Marina, this was as much to memorialize Bill Rose as it was to cut down on confusion (nobody would ever say our name correctly as Rose Marco River Marina, it was a mouthful)… now our name is short, memorable and honors Bill. Rose Marina is now an entity in the Rose Family of Business overseen by family and long time business partners of Bill Rose, many of whom reside here, vacation here, and use the marina personally.
Rose Marina has great docks and great service, truly wonderful, very professional people. They are very busy and appear to be prosperous, so why are their bathrooms and showers such an embarasment? Why is their WiFi all but useless even with a booster?
Dockwa is a royal pain, no personal contact available, no questions can be asked, you get bombarded w/e-mails, must reveal credit card w/o sense of security, etc. Rose Marina advertises wi-fi, cable tv, on-site technicians - none available.
Great staff and management! Still getting things back to normal after Irma, but enjoyed the stop..)
Charles is great. Nice fuel dock. Glad they are doing well after the hurricane
nice ship store. bathroom/shower room was functional at best. friendly staff
swflboater you sound like the owner. What a bunch of bologna, your marina stinks, lousy service, way over priced, dirty, and very rude management. I am so sorry I bothered you asking for service. That will never happen again. Stay away from this one.
Our transient dockage stay here was a pleasure. We were greeted and taken care of with first class service! During our stay, we also needed boat repair service. Let's face it...nobody is happy spending money to get their boat repaired, but when you have to, you want to feel that the work was done correctly and be treated by the service staff with respect and professionalism. I have a 54' searay and recently had it serviced at Rose Marco River Marina, and that is exactly what I experienced! It cost me $4600, but the service writers kept me in the loop by communicating the progress to me almost daily, and they were courteous and professional. I had the bottom painted and boat detailed, as well as some repair issues with the trim/tilt, and other misc repairs. The whole job was done within 10 days and the work was done right! I don't know what happend with you there "PirateTom", but my experience was the complete opposite. Perhaps they've made changes and improvements since you were there. I didn't like spending the money, but at least they left me feeling like it was worth paying the price for the quality of work that was completed! This is a first class Marina!
