Reviews for Bayside Marina
realy good place, 2017-01-07
Captain: , quebec (70)

realy friendly place and pompout is free

Great Marina, 2015-10-03
Captain: , Florida Keys (182)

This is a great marina and Miles the dock master is very nice and accomodating. It is part of the Bass Pro Shop so it is geared mostly to fishermen. That being said they do have transient slips. We were going to stay for a month but ended up staying two. The docks are less than a year old and very nice. Lots of stuff within walking distance. We have been up and down the Keys alot and Islamorda is one of our favorites. Marada Bay next door has a Full Moon party every month with fireworks and live shows. The only downside is no wifi, but we have our own so no biggie. Thier prices have come down. $3 a foot for overningt $20 a foot for a month. We draw 4' and had no trouble getting in at all. No way I could say enough nice thing about the place.

Like Really???, 2015-01-30
Captain: , Harveys Lake, PA (100)

This was supposed to be a yop rate marina. Of course, I paid the price for that and Bret was too busy to even leave the counter? No WIFI? Like even Ernest Hemmingway would have expected wifi. In there defense Bill, one of the dock masters was great but bret was too lazy to even breath. Avoid this as a stop until they get their act together. Even Burger king has wifi and when you have a 5 million dollar store, wifi should be obvious!!!! On the up side, they have a great bar and a better bar next store with live entertainment. But I have stopped at shrimp docks which, were more welcoming!

Transient dockage to be replaces CY2013, 2012-11-15
Captain: , Treasure Island, FL (375)

Stopped in (by car) for assessment as potential stop. Currently they have 6 transient spaces but it may change. According to the dockmaster they have a planned replacement/refurbishment for all docks starting early 2013. Projected completion 5 to 6 months. Call ahead. Quoted price was 2.00 per foot, electric included.

Little Basin is for shallow drafters, 2010-11-27
Captain: , Ocean Springs MS (1454)

We came here to shelter from north winds. The anchorage is very shallow (shoal draft) and is mostly a harbor for fishing powerboats. It was surprisingly rough at the dock in the norther. We ended up moving to the opposite side against the mangroves. Nothing is particularly cheap. The Morada Bay next door has good food and drinks, though, and there is a World Wide Sportsman right there.
