Reservation was quickly confirmed, but no arrival instructions given and when we got there the lone employee did not seem to know that we were coming, but figured it out and helped us tie up. Small slips (fine for us) sturdy docks with water and power. No amenities other than porta-potties, which were a little rough. Close to convenience store, several restaurants and the beach. Bridge construction noise was a negative, albeit out of their control. Overall we were disappointed and would not return.

due to a storm the fencing and slot labels were off but otherwise easy to stow and launch.

Marina Response:
Thanks for staying with us here at Adventure Marina. We strive to stay on top of everything, but Mother Nature can throw us curve balls here and there. We are working on getting the items addressed and corrected. We will begin work on the fencing ASAP and the re-numbering will follow. Thanks for hanging in there with us as we grow and improve. Glad your trip was easy otherwise. Thanks, Melanie, Adventure Marina Storage Manager

Very convenient. Half of the staff was very helpful. The boat washing station water supply was broken.

Marina Response:
1st off, I hate to hear that you had any issues with our staff. We strive to give each customer a pleasant experience and I would like to personally apologize and insure you that we will continue to work on this. 2nd, I was not aware of an issue with the wash down station. It must have been corrected right away. I hate that it caused you an inconvenience. It does get a lot of use and sometimes, we do have a few issues as with anything with moving parts. Thanks for letting us know. Melanie, Adventure Marina Storage Manager

We have always felt safe with our boat in dry storage hear. We have only encountered 2 issues here, one is not worth mention but this last time the dry lot was overbooked when we pulled our boat out on Saturday afternoon. I found a slim spot half spot to get into but there where two other boaters that had paid for dry storage that did not have a spot. We helped one boater move some a gravel pile so he could park his skiff and let another boater block our trailer in with their promise that they were leaving early the next day. Melanie is wonderful to deal with, I think they just need to schedule better. We will be back to try it all again.

Kept my boat in the storage yard on the trailer for 5 months launching it on the boat ramp 100 yards away when using it. The staff was extremely helpful, the service department was always available, knowledgeable, the prices were fair and I was satisfied with the quality of the work performed. I will be back every year we winter in Florida.

I reserved yard/lot storage for the week. The price wasn't bad with the $175 special, but the experience was very underwhelming to say the least. The trailer yard was mostly flooded - it did not drain well and was an issue stepping out into 3 inches of standing water. Free electricity that was offered is not available in the boat yard, only the wet slips - this is obviously not mentioned and posed a significant setback. The "code" locked gate is a manual dial lock, like for luggage - just heavier duty, and the gate was not electric - you had to roll the gate open yourself. Lastly, the onsite ramp is VERY narrow and VERY shallow, even on incoming tide and really only suitable for skiffs and pwc's. I would recommend launching down the road at the public ramp, but that takes away from the convenience of this. Bait shop carried the bare essentials - that's it. The staff was very pleasant though and the location was very convenient for access to the bay and inlet. I would use them again, but will be looking elsewhere beforehand next time.

The marina and the team on site were very supportive and extremely helpful. The location is phenomenal and the access to water and ramp is very good. On the area of improvement is the water supply. The supply of water to clean the boat and engines is limited and the pressure is low making very difficult to be able to clean the engines. Outside of that they place is pretty good.

The boat launch is too small to accommodate large boats. I should have been informed of this. The current is very strong and makes it difficult to launch and place your boat back on the trailer. The launch is short. My trailer tires rolled off the back and damaged my trailer. My boat is 35 feet. This launch may accommodate a boat up to 28 feet but not sure. Mine was definitely to long. Just be aware of the inadequate launch for a larger boat.

Loved the ease of parking and really liked having a permit to also park our truck while we were on the water. We definitely did not care for the narrow and crooked single boat slip, but the public launch right down the road was fabulous. We’ll use Adventure Marina again next time we bring the boat to Destin for sure.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the 4 stars. Glad for the most part you had a nice time keeping the boat here. As for the Boat Ramp - that is FREE to use for Storage Customers (it is normally $8 per day to launch a boat here.) The Public Launch is very nice I will give you that - glad you found a launch that worked best for you! See you again next time!

Best marina we have ever had the experience to enjoy! Miss Machelle was AWESOME answered all our questions and gave us a tour, we are from out of state so this really helped. Very secure dry storage area our trailer and jet skis was the same as when we left them. The guys on the dock are amazing as well!! Helped me up on the dock and held and watched my ski while i went to get my truck to load them!! A+++ will deff use adventure marina again!!

When someone rents a wet slip make sure and ask if a BIG fishing boat will be by side you !!! We had fish guts & fish scales all on the seats , side of the boat and on the carpet of our pontoon boat ! Everyone that works at the little fish & tackle shop is super nice and helpful ! The wet slips are very close to the parking area so it was easy to pack everything to the boat daily. I would use Adventure Marina again but will ask more questions as to who will be by me !

Just so you and our future guests know that the "BIG fishing boat" is no longer at Adventure Marina.

There is no security or even a fence to keep people away from your boat. Two of the five days I wanted to use the water it was not working; I was told the pump was not working. I was told by the full-time boaters adjacent to me this was common. and that when it does work, there is inadequate water pressure. Also, there was no way to plug into the electricity without a special adapter and there was no option but to pay $41.00 to purchase the adapter, no rental, no loan with deposit, no 120 15-amp receptacle. Pay $41.00+ for the adapter. Finally, the dock is about 15-feet long so you are not going to be able to access anything but one end of your boat but not get access to the entire boat as it is docked. I'll use the facility again as it is very convenient to where I stay in Fort Walton Beach but if there was an alternative, I would use it instead.

Marina Response:
Hello, The security we do have 24-hour video surveillance, but you are correct about the gate. There is only a gate to get into the Yard Storage area. The water pump is having to be replaced. We did, however, get the water switched over to a different water service within 24 hours of being notified of an issue. We are on the schedule to have someone come work on or replace the pump for the water. If you would have called the storage number or sent us a message on Dockwa where you made your reservation about the water we might have been able to fix it to where you could have used it. But when I found out about it around 4 pm (had someone stop and get parts that night) the next morning it was still not working so we did what we could to try to fix it. Wasn't kicking on, so we switched it to the other water. Also the power, we do not advertise that we have 15amp service. We offer 30 and 50 amp (shore power), we do however sell the adaptors for our customers (which the same adapter is sold at West Marine for almost $65+tax).
