Reviews for A and B Marina
Great Visit, 2016-07-19
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (80)

Got fuel and stayed at marina for 4 days. They put us on the T-head and had a great view of all the activities in Bight. Staff was helpful and friendly. Everything you would want in marina and location.

Rude staff, 2016-07-04
Captain: , Cape Coral (60)

Stopped here to fuel up and pick up a slip for a few days..we ended up doing neither. Dock hand was a jerk and treated my wife rudely. Current running through the VERY busy limited space channel was making it difficult to stand off (no bow thrusters on my boat!) coupled with the dock hand yelling at us not to tie off temporairly on the finger while we waited for another boat to finish fueling drove us to a neighboring facility..I guess everyone can have a bad day and given the reviews we were very surprised at what happened. I'm sure its a nice place but I won't be giving them a dime of my money ever to find out..

Right in the middle of all the activity. Nice floating docks with great people to help you dock and answer your questions. Laundry is no charge for washing or drying. Nice bathrooms with locking doors for the showers. No finger piers so have to back in and exit on your platforms. Lots to see and do in Key West All in short walking distance from the docks.

Great Location, 2015-02-13
Captain: , Dallas, TX (726)

UPDATE: We just keep coming back here. Great location. Wind and current made docking a challange. Can't imagine docking anywhere else when visiting Key West.

Great location for all the Key West activities. Limited groceries, beer wine and liquor available on site as well as several nice restaurants. Pump out was not working when we were there but there is a pump out boat available. Met several seasonal liveaboards that were very helpful. Had a great time in Key West and will be back next year if my liver holds up.

A wonderful experience, 2014-08-09
Captain: , Ottawa (30)

A and B was our first visit to Key West and Mark went out of his way to make sure we were welcome.
The marina has without a doubt the best location in the town, with everything a short walking distance. The showers, laundry are very well equipped and located near the bar-restaurant so you can have a cold beer while doing the wash. There is also a liiquor-wine store on the premises.
The docks are first class, with everything you would need, including helpfull staff.

Another great feature of the marina is A and B Lobster House. We tried many restaurants during our four day stay, and found A and B to have wonderful food and excellent service.

Mark and Bill have built an excellent marina, one which I can wholeheartedly recommend.

Couldn't be better, 2014-03-12
Captain: , Boca Raton, FL (935)

Update March 7, 2014. Good thing about this marina and the people is that they are consistently good. Back again and the review remains the same.

Great floating docks, great security, great fuel prices, great location, great showers, great everything. When some people came down on the dock to take a few closeups of the fish in the water, the dockmaster was right there. He was considerate to them and assisted them in leaving. I usually stay at one of the other marinas but never again. Thanks for a great visit.

Simply the Best, 2014-02-03
Captain: , Seabrook, TX (250)

Mark and the rest of the staff are excellent, the location, all of the facilities, the fuel prices are first rate. Stern to for us sailboaters is a challenge, but worth the effort. We have stayed there twice and will return again.

Best Diesel Prices in the Keys, 2013-08-14
Captain: , Palmetto, Fl (145)

If you need diesel, this is the place to stop! They seem to always have the best fuel price in the keys and its a mighty fine location to spend some time. Super nice staff and always there to help.

Wonderful Marina, 2013-07-24
Captain: , St. Teresa, FL (60)

This marina has everything you want: great location, competant staff, nice facilities, inexpensive fuel. We were considering another less expensive marina on Stock Island but choose A&B and are glad we did. While it is more expensive, the location and good fuel prices more than make up the difference. Next time we're in Key West we will stay at A&B!

Center of action in Key West, 2013-06-14
Captain: , Houston, TX (523)

This is a very nice marina right in the middle of the action at Key West Bight, a very short walk from Duval Street. Very friendly and compentent staff.
If you need any electrical work done (we were struck by lightning and had to replace all electronics), I highly recommend Brent Artz (; 251-979-6489).

Best price, nice people, awesome location, 2013-04-04
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (21)

This is a well protected marina and not as expensive as other surrounding spots. Probably due to no pool.

One of our favorites, 2013-01-21
Captain: , St Petersburg, Fl (202)

We were last there in July 2012 and are very happy with the facilities and the staff. We usually stop there every summer and find the service very good and the fuel prices were the best in the bight. We have always found the restrooms clean. We plan to stop in again this summer.

A great backup, 2012-01-18
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (334)

We have stayed at A&B several times. It is easy in and out. However, the fuel dock is a little difficult to get into depending on the wind.

Disappointing, 2012-01-16
Captain: , Richardson, TX (552)

We were a bit disappointed with A & B. The slips have no finger piers between them so you're sandwiched in very close to the boats next to you. Be prepared to turn in a tight space, back in to a tight slip and throw your lines over the pilings as you pass them! Location is great if you want to be in the thick of things. The grocery store that is within walking distance, Faustos, is VERY expensive. We rode the trolley out to Winn Dixie. The staff is ok but the bathrooms leave a lot to be desired. There are 4 unisex nice sized rooms but they're were not kept very clean. For $3.00/ft I didn't feel we got our money's worth.

Great staff, 2011-09-07
Captain: , St. Petersburg, FL (537)

Stopped to get diesel and some quick supplies. Staff was out to help us tie up, and they were really helpful. we got there right at closing, but they didn't flinch.

Fabulous friendly staff, 2011-07-25
Captain: , PooleUK (933)

We arrived happily but remained under duress caused by MTU Miami, the staff were fabulously helpfull and accomdating.

Well Managed, 2011-04-13
Captain: , Orange Beach (70)

Great location only three blocks from Duval St.
Mark, the dock master runs a tight ship. Stayed six nights all the partying I could handle.

Location Location!, 2011-01-26
Captain: , Hernando Beach, Fl (300)

Floating docks but no finger piers. You need easy transom access. Very pricey, but you pay for the location. Nice bathrooms, but not much else.

A&B Marina, 2011-01-13
Captain: , St John USVI currently Homeport Marina Gulf Shores AL (234)

3.00 per foot but was not wide enough for the catamaran to fit.

A and B Marina, 2008-04-28
Captain: , Charleston, SC (364)

Great location, excellenent staff, more propected from the prevailing east wind than the city marina. None ( except the first on each side of the pier ) of the slips have side piers so you must board from the stern of your boat.

Nice Place, 2007-01-22
Captain: , Castine, Maine (2964)

The marina was fine. It is right at the end of Duval Street so you can walk everywhere. The staff wasn't overly friendly or helpful but when you go to Key West you want to be were the action is. The facility was clean and had what we needed.
