Reviews for Black Point Marina
Nice Marina, great south fl prices., 2015-10-27
Captain: , Key Largo (5330)

Old stlyle high concrete docks, secure gates, nice bar and grill on property, Not close to anything walkable, good rates.
they don't have many transients, or transient dockage, so call ahead and don't expect help docking.
easily avoidable charted 3.9 ft. depth at entrance by going north of south.



Great Marina and staff 2015 Jan09, 2015-01-23
Captain: , Moyock, NC (984)

There are six Miami-Dade Park Marinas which are nice, friendly, a good stay, affordable, and working to improve their offering. Pump-out systems have been a problem. However, in 2015 all six marinas are scheduled with funding for new pump-out systems to be installed that will also tell the boater how much waste is removed.



best marina down south, 2014-04-07

Closest marina to Elliot Key



Nice for the money., 2014-01-19
Captain: , Fulton, MO (66)

It's a nice enough place for the money, which is much cheaper than most other South Florida marinas! They no longer offer Boat U.S. discount, so it's $1.25/ft. The docks are fixed and a bit high at low tide, but managable if your're reasonably mobile. They don't have showers, and the bathrooms are either in the restaurant or near the boat ramp. The grounds are attractive and well kept and there's security gates on each dock (I had no problems with the key card). The restaurant's supposed to be good, although I didn't try it myself cause I didn't care for the band playing, and they did play till about 12:30am(it was Sat night).



Great place to be stuck..., 2013-04-15
Captain: , Sebastian FL (142)

We lost a belt on one of our engines in February just north of Featherbed Bank. Called the Dockmaster and he made room for us and explained how to get in. One of the dockhands took me to auto parts stores (four) until we found a replacement belt and were ready to continue. Great service, especially on a Saturday afternoon. The area is beautiful and well protected. Yes, the docks might be a little funky, but I thought it had a great feel to it. Can't thank these guys enough. The band was good too!



Too many surprises, 2012-12-27
Captain: , Mullica Hill, NJ (688)

This could have been rated higher but for the surprises. First the key card did not work then after fixing it it did not work in the morining. If I had not had my cell phone I would not have been able to get back in. There are no showers and the rest rooms are in the Bar/Restaurants or over by the launch ramps. The second big surprise was at 0645 when there were sevral blasts that sounded a bit like shotgun blasts. After a minute there were several maore. The blasts continued randomly for 45 minutes. I later found out that it was a propane cannon used to scare off the birds. If it worked you could not tell it from the condition of the docks.
The fixed concrete docks are about 4.5 ft. high. The finger piers are about 15 ft. long. We had to exit over the bow rail.
All in all except for the surprises you get what you pay for.



Cheap, but you get what you pay for., 2011-11-21
Captain: , Naples (217)

We draw 5'9" for a 34' sailboat and were able to make it in. Some scary moments, but we followed prior advice in reviews to come n a bit south fo the channel markers then come in...also used tide assistance and never saw less than 5.5 feet. Also, be mindful that during high tide or periods of elevated waters, the jetty will likely be completely underwater. Just some mangroves that grow on top will be exposed. A bit eerie coming into that!

BoatUS members get a discount. For a 34 foot boat, it was $37 for the night. The restaurant/bar looks fun, but we were there when there was a Nascar race, so the bathrooms were absolutely filthy and disgusting because of the crowds. No showers are available at all, which I found strange. Also, if you get put on a transient dock, there will likely be about 0.5" of seagull feces on the concrete docks until you cross some imaginary line where the monthly customers are docked. This was extremely disgusting as seagull excrement gets on your boat, on your shoes and is extremely difficult to clean off, bacteria laden and just generally disgusting.

All in all, I'm pretty dissapointed. This is a marina definitely oriented towards the powerboating crowd. But in a pinch when you cant anchor out and you can squeeze in via draft, it served its purpose.



Great portection, good rates, friendly staff, close to Everglades National Park, 2011-01-27
Captain: , Poughkeepsie, NY (5686)

The marina is run by the state and is completely protected from all directions. There is a good restaurant on-site that attracts the local crowd. However, on Friday and Saturday nights they usually have a band that starts at 9:30 pm and plays until 1:30am. It didn't bother us, we slept right through it but it may bother some (it's loud).

You can rent a car from Enterprise for $30/day which we did to tour the Everglades National Park - a must see site!! Enterprise will come and pick up and return you to the marina at no charge.

At $0.94/ft (for BOAT/US members), this marina is a real bargain. The docks are fixed but there is a short finger suitable for deboarding. Also, there is a crocodile in the marina! He's about 10 to 12 feet long and suns on the bank about 10 ft south of Loggerhead Marina's dock. (don't let your dog swim!)

Now for the bad news, there is shallow spot marked at 4 ft right in front of the entrance channel (the channel itself is deep, 10ft). I came and left at high tide per Deering tide tables. You can somewhat avoid the 4 ft spot by angling off to the north or south of it just before entering the channel. I went north coming in and south going out. With a 2.0 ft tide, I saw 5.2 ft by angling off to the south once pass the last entrance buoy. Since I draw 5.0 feet, I made it through but with some anxious moments.
