The Anchorage Inn and Marina are currently closed. The Inn is being renovated/reconstructed and looks like it might reopen later in 2017.

Captain: , Hampton, VA (581)

This info is 6 months old, but we took our dingy over there from the mooring field and the marina had exactly one boat and the office in the (also closed) adjoining motel was also closed. We will be there in a week or so and will report back here.

Approach this marina with the utmost of caution. Tides run fast and strong. Marina, along with other marinas in this town, charge Fort Lauderdale prices compared to Halifax Marina, Daytona that is much more reasonable and poses less docking hazard. If you can make your way to south to Marineland or Palm Coast. If you traveling north then try to make it to Beach Marine Jacksonville or Fernadina Municpal is much better. They have fairly new floating docks but staff doesn't answer channel 16 most of the time. Don't expect to receive docking assistance.

This marina is not the best and being on the "T" dock it was rock and roll all night. Add in the 2-3 knt current and you get a sleepless night. Ther are some resturants around, and it's not a long walk to the center of historic St. Augustine. But I moved.

Great Location, 2012-07-29
Captain: , St Augustine, Fl (480)

Great Location right over the bridge of Lions and you are downtown. Cons... Lots of birds pooping on your boat, an incredible current rips thru here so you can only enter and leave during slack tides...No security, I almost had stuff solen off my boat by some college kids. No staff to speak of to help you with your lines.
However Lynette in the Office is a sweetheart and William the manager will give you his best.
I would try marinas up the sebastian river to get away from the boat wakes, strong tides and craziness of down town.

Great Price/Value Marina, 2011-12-15
Captain: , Annapolis (602)

Stayed for one month - Nov/Dec 2011. Had to leave boat and run back to Annapolis for 2 weeks and then decided to complete some boat projects. Great concrete floating docks with plenty of 30A/50A service, water and cable TV, all of which worked. Four WiFi connections with good bandwidth. Must call city pumpout boat from across river - not a biggie. Strong current, as is all of St Augustine. Best docks with some current blockage are the two rows of inside facing. They have 3 catamaran capable slips and 4 T-Head cat/tri/big boat capable spots. Minimal "marina" services but great value given the location, price, etc. Does not get as much current/wake as the City Marina since they are on the inside of the bend of the river around Anastasia. GREAT NEWS - according to the City Harbourmaster the No Wake Bouys south of the Bridge of Lions will be moved 500 feet further South on Jan 1, 2012. This should help both marinas and the mooring field. Contact William or Lynnette - super friendly.

Any port in a Storm, 2011-11-19
Captain: , Wilmington (20)

Staff friendly and helpful but with no knowledge of how to help tie up a boat in 30K winds. No hot water in Captains lounge, nice floating docks but bird droppings on everything.

Nice dock, less than nice facility, 2011-05-30
Captain: , No real home port. Cruising. (320)

Probably a 2 to 3 star small dock with nice floating docks but no dock assistance, a one-star motel and one-star shower/toilet facility. Employees were very friendly. Five minute walk across the bridge to the tourist traps and the old fort. No significant traffic noise despite being next to the bridge.

For the cost, I give it 4 stars, 2011-02-18
Captain: , West Palm Beach, FL (82)

The marina itself is in good shape with new-looking floating docks. The hotel part is, admittedly, low end. But I couldn't complain since they offered the room for $49.

Anchorage Marina, 2010-11-20
Captain: , Altamonte Springs, Fl (140)

We stayed there this weekend. It was an hour waiting for the staff to show up to get us situated.
WiFi did not work ( the manager said they were getting it fixed next week). Showers were at the other end of the motel, and kinda scuzzy. No pump out. the bridge work is completed and the noise level was minimal.
Docks were good.

Unfriendly, 2010-04-14
Captain: , Isle of Palms, SC (314)

We are here for the MTOA Apr, 2010 for 5 nights. On the face dock, but not nearly the movement as I felt on the City Marina- I do not know why. The noise from the destruction of the temporary bridge is the same here as at the City marina. No cable tv, phone, saw no pump out boat and the main dock/master- Richard- is not the most pleasant person. Seems to have more interest in anything else but transients. This could be a great marina if they provided more of a personal touch. Docks are is great shape and a great location. No newspaper- and he did not know where could get one!- no loaner car. But it is close to great restaurants- especially O'Steens- about 2 blocks east. Carefull!!- they only take cash and there is always a line- food is that good- seafood!!

A viable alternative, 2009-11-25
Captain: , St Augustine, Fl (15)

There is now a small(!) ships store on site where you can get ice, chips, drinks and the like. It's true the dockmaster's focus is often on the rental boats, but they've been quite helpful with lines whenever I've called in. It's much quieter now that the bridge construction has gotten past the point of driving pilings (THAT could be heard all over town!). Now you mostly just hear the usual traffic noises. Nice wide floating docks, reliable AC. Showers for boaters available, but not always very clean. An easy walk across the bridge to downtown.

Noisy with lots of current, 2008-04-19
Captain: , Oriental, NC (7)

This marina is literally 50' from the construction on the new bridge and it is very noisy 7 days a week as the construction is behind schedule and not expected to be completed until 2010, if then. Dockmaster is more interested in his rental boats than helping with docklines, etc. Stay at the city marina, if possible, at least then you are next to town.

municipal marina alternative, 2007-12-06
Captain: , Carolina Beach, NC (391)

Across river from muncipal marina, slightly cheaper. Limited dockage parallel to current. Long walk to bathroom. Across bridge from downtown St Augustine.
