Reviews for Big Chute Marina
Handy for overnight wait to lock down, 2016-06-26
Captain: , Naples, FL (682)

This is a small but friendly marina right at the marine railway. We are 38 ft (45 ft overall with dinghy on the stern) but fitted comfortably in the 30 ft slip. Larger boats could easily fit on the T-head.
We planned our overnight here to explore the marine railway and watch a docking. The showers and toilets are adequate. Wifi is good. Watch for the goose droppings on the hike to the showers.



General store, some parts and a good restaraunt, 2014-07-04
Captain: , Nowhere,OK (1314)

We didn't stay here, but stayed on the upper Big Chute docks.

New owner in 2014 of the Big Chute Restaurant. Get the Big Chute Burger or the fried fish (Pickerel and Halibut). Coleslaw was best I've had in years.

Small parts store on site, but they had the electrical connectors I needed. I did look at the fuel dock, it's low in the water as remarked below.

I had called about a slip for my 45 and they really were reticent on giving me one, which is how I ended on the Parks Dock.



Big Chure Marina, 2013-07-05
Captain: , Longboat Key, FL (445)

We wanted a reservation so we booked this marina. Right next to (above) bigchute lock. T head for one big boat so call ahead. 50 amp power. water is pumped from the canal so we only used it for boat cleaning and showers but we pre filtered. Didn't try restaurant but looks simple but decent, licensed as well. Great gawking at Big Chute Railway



Gas dock not so good, 2012-07-18
Captain: , Beaverton (264)

Marina is conveniently located right next to the marine railway.... but the gas dock is a very very low floating dock.... my fenders didn't get down far enough, and although the dock had bumpers, they (along with the dock itself) are quite aged. Gas was $150.9/Liter (July 14, 2012), which was a little higher than average. This gas dock seems to be more appropriate for the local cottage runabouts, and not necessarily larger cruisers.... I would only use this dock to get gas in an urgent situation (which we were in), but in future I will plan my fueling requirements more appropriately now that I know better.



Nice little restaurant, 2012-06-27
Captain: , punta gorda, fl (1328)

Stayed at lock but had lunch at restaurant. Burgers are great. Also, good ice cream.



Good view of railway, 2011-07-17
Captain: , Mesa AZ (1609)

Cafe on premises. Great ice cream. Dock water is not potable, no wifi. Boat wakes are plentiful.



Big Chute Marina, 2009-07-01
Captain: , Howard Prairie (500)

Right at the Big Chute Marine railway. Nice marina with pumpout fuel, basic mechanical services. Nice restaraunt and store. Water available only buy purchase.
