Reviews for C-Quarters Marina
Nice Marina, 2017-06-17
Captain: , Naples (70)

Stopped here after crossing from Stienhatchee and really enjoyed the downhome hospitality. They have a nice ships store and Kim was very helpful with any information requested. Grocery store and great restaurant, The Fisherman's Wife, almost right across the street. Very easy access from the river. Weather was beautiful so can't really say how it would be with winds. Would definitely stay there again!!

Special, caring Staff, 2017-05-10
Captain: , Portland, Oregon (576)

We were there waiting for a weather window to cross the bend but had a medical emergency which required an emergency room visit. Kim was so great in trying to get us medical treatment but then arranged for us to borrow a car from one of the other marina tenants so we could drive to Apalachicola's hospital. We were there, treated and returned in just a couple of hours which would have taken all day had we had to wait on public transportation or a taxi.

Great Stop to wait for Gulf crossing, 2017-04-20
Captain: , Grand Rivers, Ky (2206)

4-13-17-Stayed here again on our return trip and changed our rating from 3 to 5 stars. The marina staff is great, the fuel prices are great, and most anything you need is a short walk away.

12-3-16 We were here for 10 days waiting for a window to cross the Gulf. Nice marina and very friendly helpful staff. The hardware store close to the marina has everything you need, and if they don't have it, they can get it. Grocery also has a good selection. Nice cafe in town, Fathoms Raw bar, and the Fishermans Wife restaurant are also good.

Friendly Marina to Wait for a Crosssing, 2017-03-12
Captain: , Fort Monroe, VA (949)

If you are looking for a maina with a swimming pool, tennis court, on site fancy dining and a brand new courtsey car, you will not find it here, or in Carabelle. What you will find is a good marina, helpful staff, good rates, close proximity to groceries, hardware, and local dining. If you need reparis, ask Kim and she will put you in contact with the right people. This may be a marina with three star amenities, but Kim and her staff go that extra distance and that has me staging from C-Quarters for this and future crossings. Relax and enjoy honest hospitality while waiting for a crossing window.

Great Staging Place for Gulf Crossing, 2017-02-19
Captain: , Wilmington, NC (415)

Nothing fancy, but great place to wait a few days for crossing the Gulf. They even have a larged covered porch where everyone gathers each evening to socialize.

Current and wind were a bit tricky getting into the slip but their staff were there to patiently help. Would definitely stop here again if the opportunity presents itself!

Great stop..don't stay too long or you might never leave, 2017-02-03
Captain: , Nashville, TN (273)

Stayed 1 night before gulf crossing. As previous reviews said, they make you feel like a local right away. Very convenient location.

simple but nice, 2017-01-30
Captain: , St. Marks fl (40)

Not fancy, no floating docks and all..BUT... All the people that work there are friendly and make you feel right at home. A pot luck on monday's about 6 is always fun.there is an IGA and hardware store right across the street.And of course there is " the porch". Im enjoying my stay and would look foward to coming back

Trying to be objective, 2016-11-18
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (2870)

Yes, all the staff and locals were great. The heads showers are very basic, but functional. The docks are not in great shape and you could wind up damaging your boat if the current grabs you entering or leaving your slip.

I will never understand how other captains determine their ratings. We have cruised extensively and see real 4-star marinas with floating docks, fantastic heads and showers, courtesy cars, slips protected from current, etc. Then this place gets a 4-star. Great people do not change the marina infrastructure or amenities.

Great place to stay, 2016-11-17
Captain: , Long Beach, MS (50)

We came here for a week and ended up staying just over 5 months. This is the best Marina. The people are the best, Monday night is a buffet and a lot of people from town come as well as boaters. The prices you can't be beat. There are rockers on the porch and almost always someone there to talk to. We even had friends come see us off when we left. Watch out for the current it does get pretty fast so don't try to put your boat in to slow or you will end up sideways or hitting another boat like ours got hit, but we got it fixed pretty quick. Also watch out for the sand bar, I don't know why but a lot of people seem to want to go down the middle of the channel instead of following the channel markers. There is plenty of water as we have a 5.5 ft keel and another boater had a 6.5 ft keel and they didn't have a problem except at the dock. They will tell you which slip has deep water. Also the fuel price are great. Everything you need is in walking distance, several small restaurants, IGA, post office, and the worlds smallest police station. as well as other places to visit.

Little piece of heaven, 2016-11-08
Captain: , Milton, Fl (86)

This is a small quiet town that you fall in love with! Anchorages are limited but the slip fees are so affordable that you can not go wrong. Everyone here is very salty and friendly. Great source of information for travelers. We will be making this a regular stop!

Great place to wait for crossing, 2016-10-17
Captain: , Cleveland (2083)

Kim was very friendly and helpful, both coming in and when we left at 7:00am. The restrooms are dated and not fancy but clean and functional. There is a wonderful covered porch with rocking chairs and a porch swing. The IGA is a short walk and there are restauants nearby. The ship store has many boating needs as well as anything needed for fishing. There is a walk in ice room where you can get ice by the 5 gallon bucket if you need it. If you are looking for modern and fancy this isn't your place but the service and friendly people will keep us coming back.

Very Friendly, 2016-09-15
Captain: , Houston, TX (31)

Everyone was friendly and helpful. The marina is rather worn and needs updating. The pump-out was not working well and I'm not sure if it actually got much out of our holding tank. There is a sizable community of live-aboards and long term and they tend to gather in the mornings and evening on the large covered area in front of the office in rocking chairs and swing seats. Every Monday they have a pot-luck dinner. Very pleasant stay.

Shopworn but friendly, 2016-06-25
Captain: , United States (3192)

Docks are in bad condition; an exposed nail gouged our paint. Power pedestals are hit and miss, but I just used the next one over since it was empty. Some slips are so far from the office that you have to walk along the main road to reach them.

That said, the owner and staff were friendly, they comped my slip due to the paint damage, and they had the best fuel price in NW FL when we stopped by. Not a bad place to stay if you need to stop in Carabelle.

Five Stars..., 2016-04-04
Captain: , Illinois (2562)

...for Kim being helpful on March 20.
We needed a stopover to explore the area for a future boat trip and Kim's assistance has ensured a repeat visit from us. Thank you Kim!

Captain: , atlanta (100)

Nice Marina friendly staff feel was 260 a gallon for gas. fisherman's wife restaurant a block away it was good and healthy portions.

Helpful and happy, 2015-12-12
Captain: , Huntsville (40)

Stopped on our way to Mobile, needed a rest and a little time to get things organized after a week of pushing to meet a self imposed deadline. Everyone there was willing to go out of their way to make things easier on us. Easy ax

Great Rates / Friendly People, 2015-11-19
Captain: , Pensacola (460)

Update: It's been almost 3 yrs since we wrote our initial review, but C-Quarters remains our first choice marina in Carrabelle! We typically stop by twice a year, as we travel north and south. Is it perfect? No. But the people are great and they do their best to make sure everyone feels welcome. Any marina in Carrabelle is going to be faced with the same challenges related to the tides and currents, and it does require a bit of planning -- especially around the full and new moons.

There is not a lot to do in Carrabelle, but there is a World War II museum that is quite good, a unique house and lighthouse made entirely of wine bottles, a couple of good hw stores and marine supply store.

Each of these coastal communities (Apalachicola, Carrabelle etc) have their own charm and deserve to be visited at least once.

We have also enjoyed many beautiful sunsets on the river -- from our own back deck as well as from up on the C-Quarters deck where other boaters and locals gather.

We ended up staying in Carrabelle for 3 1/2 weeks, waiting for a weather window, and were very glad that we picked C-Quarters. Everyone makes you feel very welcome. Kim was exceptional and really on top of things; James loves to cook (and share) his barbecue and does a great job.

Yes, the finger piers are short and there is no along-side tie dock. That is probably the biggest downfall of the marina. Fortunately, we were able to stay in one of the 2 slips that do have a long dock.

The rates and people can't be beat and this will be our choice of marinas on future visits to Carrabelle (pending availability of the long finger slips).

Carrabelle Junction (downtown cafe) has great sandwiches and salads for lunch.

Can't imagine why people have rated this higher, 2015-11-16
Captain: , Essex, CT (1675)

So where to begin. If you're looking to make a crossing and will need to wait more than 24 hours -- do yourself a favor and stay in Apalachicola until it's time and then mosy over to Dog Island for your launch. Carrabelle isn't worth staying at for more than a day and even then I'd choose the Moorings over C-Quarters. C-Quarters has a very strong current so getting in and out of both the gas dock and slips is a huge challenge. And they don't tell you about the tide. We were told to come stern in and tie up but the next moring discovered we were hard aground as the tide had gone out. Thank goodness we weren't planning on a day crossing because we didn't refloat until nearly 11am. There is a very good seafood resaurant nearby -- Fisherman's Wife -- that served arguably the best grouper sandwhich ever. As for the marina -- docks are marginal, wifi that was awful, ok bathrooms and worrisome tides that may ground you.

Had a bad experience with C-Quaters, 2015-11-13
Captain: , Ft Myers, Florida (1804)

Updated--We had a reservation at C-Quarters on The evening of Nov 10,2015.

Would not recommend. Would not answer phone for first 4 tries. When a man answered he was gruff and unfriendly. Put us in an old slip far from Marina.
Fuel dock is small maybe 25 ft long.
Decided not to put up with the dock hands bad attitude and ridiculous fuel dock. Went to Moorings at Carabelle. Had a very good stay there.

great stop for any boater, 2015-08-08
Captain: , Kitty Hawk, NC (290)

came up from apalachicola 28' sailboat 5'draft. great channel up the river. big slips to pull in and adjust to current flow, not bad though. Sat through two big low pressures while waiting to sail across. great people. showed up last day of fishing tournament. friendly crowd, won a cooler at raffle. fresh seafood restaurants. grocery, ace. great small town to be in. wifi was great. covered cool patio was refreshing. tackle/ship store. ice! restrooms standard. Everyone was helpful. quick sail to dog island is a must!

nicest people ever, 2015-06-28
Captain: , New Orleans, La (70)

stopped here for a day after crossing the gulf. staff was super friendly and accommodating, from not charging us the full length of the boat to letting us use their truck to get breakfast one morning. will definitely be staying again on our way back. awesome stay

Capt Joe Apicella, 2015-06-01
Captain: , East Falmouth, MA (1643)

Great stop before crossing the Gulf. Very accomodating staff, especially Capt. Kim. The lowest fuel prices on the panhandle. Close to IGA, ACE Hardware, and several good restaurants. The porch with its rocking chairs is a great place to socialize and enjoy afternoon adult beverages. Look for the "shrimp lady" who sells fresh gulf shrimp out of her pick up truck for $5 per lb. TYhe local fish market sell fresh oysters for $25 for a 60 lb bag,

Great Place to Stay, 2015-04-27
Captain: , Kemah, TX (306)

Whe layed over here waiting for a window to cross. The staff is very friendly and there are restaurnts bars, grocery and hardware stores nearby.

I would have rated them at five stars if their pump out was operational.

Great Folks, 2015-04-17
Captain: , Gulf Shores AL (160)

Good Fortune, Gulf Shores AL

It is true the marina staff can make all the difference in a stay. We were here three days and I wish it could have been a week. Not just the staff but all the folks sitting and visiting on the porch rockers make you feel like you are most welcome.

Great Weather Waiting Stop, 2015-03-03
Captain: , Orange TX (130)

We have been to many friendly marinas but this place is exceptional. It is an older marina that has been well cared for. Very clean. Several interesting places to visit. If you go to one of the eateries be prepared to say hello to everyone that crosses your path. Kim is a very knowledgeable Dockmaster that not only helped with weather windows but also called to check that we arrived safely after crossing the Gulf. We will definitely return.

Keeping it real and simple, 2015-02-27
Captain: , Cincinnati (252)

Great older riverside marina, nothing fancy but everything is in good repair. Restaurants, grocery and hardware store all with in easy walking distance. A good place swope boating stories while waiting for a weather window to make the crossing. Stayed January 2015

Good Marina, 2014-12-10
Captain: , Belleville, Ontario (410)

Very nice folks- slips are singles lining the river - came in at low slack tide so it was easy - lots of depth - close to everything - WiFi is excellent - washrooms are clean - there is a fresh seafood market about 3/4 of a mile east on the highway which is very very good. Propane refills can be aquired about a mile to the west. IGA just a short distance west, a little on the pricy side.
This is a great place to wait out weather

clean marina, 2014-08-20
Captain: , Vero Beach, FL (654)

Great local knowledge and fuel stop for crossing. I would want to stay here any more time than needed.

A special place with extra special people., 2014-07-12
Captain: , Charleston SC (805)

Some might consider negatives, fixed wooden docks, strong cross current, short finger piers but you will not find a more genuine welcome than at the full service marina, C.QUARTERS.
The marina offers every service a visiting mariner could ask for, cable TV, 30 and 50 amp.ships store, book and DVD exchange .A rustic porch , yes complete with rocking chairs and cushions. A pleasant place to meet and share with fellow rovers and local citizens. The showers and heads are spotless. Full laundry facilities. The staff are knowledgeable and attentive to the needs of there guests but are not intrusive respecting guests privacy.
This marina is the genuine article, without glitz and glam, which undoubtably offers unbeatable value.A months dockage with shore power and tax included is just $321, Diesel fuel $ 3.70 and a 5 gallon bucket of ice $2.Easy on the budget, allows a little extra to enjoy the fresh seafood ashore!.The 'shrimp lady' visits the marina each week
.The town of Carrabelle ofers the cruising sailor , two hardware stores, two museums, an IGA, a barber shop, several well priced restaurants and cafes. The local people extend a warm welcome and helping hand . Tallahasse is about an hours drive away if anyone is planning crew changes. The town has suffered with the decline of the US. commercial fishing industry but is makeing every effort to develope boating and pleasure fishing interests.
A great marina in a great little town, simple but sweet. We will be back, maybe for an extended stay.

best fuel price, 2014-07-07
Captain: , Navarre (40)

best fuel price 7/3/2014 - 7/6/2014 on our trip from Steinhatchee to Destin, 4.35/gal. for gas. Rustic old Florida atmosphere, cheap slips, ice by the 5 gal bucket, nice staff, rockers on the porch. Narrow but deep enough channel, tensed the newbie up but all went well. very knowledgeable staff, helpful.

Great stopover, 2014-01-28
Captain: , Satellite Beach, Fl. (125)

We spent 2 weeks here awaiting a weather window for the run to Dunedin, Fl. and throughly enjoyed our stay. This is a wonderful, picturesque town with great, firendly folks and we will definitely return in the future. Very peaceful setting and the marina staff are great......Kim is a gem!
We really wanted to take advantage of the "front porch" scene but the weather was just too cold most days but it is very inviting. You should not miss this marina.

showers for anchorers, 2013-12-18
Captain: , St Joe (159)

C-Quarters isa great place to get $5 showers if you are anchored or tied up at the City dock.

Nice friendly marina - Strong current!!!, 2013-11-20
Captain: , St. Petersburg (749)

The marina is on the Carrabelle river which is subject to strong currents, making parking in the slips with short finger piers and outer pilings a bit tricky. The staff is very friendly and welcoming.

Cheap/Very nice, 2013-06-14
Captain: , Woodbridge, Va (126)

Diesel was $3.70. They sell ice $2.00 for a 5 gal bucket. At only $1 a ft I was treated better then a lot of places I paid $2 for Very nice porch large with several rockers and locals. I felt like I was back in Va. I will make it a point to go back

Nice place, 2013-04-25
Captain: , Phoenix, AZ (960)

Planned on a couple of days, stayed 3 weeks. Ace Hardware, IGA, Post Office, Dollar General within walking distance. We were able to tie up to the dock going out to the fuel dock. Much easier to get on & off the boat. They have wifi, laundry, cable t.v. & small store on site. Super helpful and friendly marina. Would stay there if in Carabelle again.

Great Stopover, 2013-04-11
Captain: , Annapolis (1465)

It' the people that make C-Quarters such a great place to stop. Kim is very knowledgeable on the weather and all things Carrabelle. As other reviews stated, there is an "interesting" group of folks who gather on the porch at Happy Hour (or earlier!). Great food and music at Fathom Steamhouse...the Carrabelle Museum is also worth a visit.

Another Big Thumbs Up, 2013-01-23
Captain: , Kemah, Tx. (145)

We've been here for one week, waiting on weather and dealing with a fuel leak. Harold helped me out, and knows his way around boats. Kim is great, and really makes you feel welcome. James smoked up some of the best ribs I've ever had last Sunday, and we all brought side dishes. Overall, one of our favorite stops since leaving Kemah, Tx.

With great rates and fuel prices, friendly people, and the convenience of their location, don't miss this one.

40 ft motor sailer, 3.5 ft draft, 2013-01-14
Captain: , lenoir city, tn (200)

Sometimes a marina just strikes your fancy. This is one of those places for us.

Good depth at approach and had 6.5 ft at dock.

Electricity good, wifi good, water is well water and good.

Rustic, old Florida atmosphere. We liked our 2 days here very much.

Staff is very good. Locals provide a happy atmosphere. We learned a lot about local history and culture.

Good restaurant, Fisherman's Wife nearby. Good eats.

Fuel was $3.80 with 5 cent discount for loopers.

Cable included. Great DVD selection with donations going to Leukemia Foundation.

Only thing better is monthly rate of $321 including everything.

No doubt we will visit again if we are in the neighborhood.

This is classic old Florida, 2012-11-06
Captain: , Cape Coral FL (4188)

Love this place. Rustic, yes. Classic, you betcha. Would rate it 5 star if their docks were longer or if they had floating docks. James helped us come in and tie up, George took our registration information. IGA store one block away, good restaurant THE FISHERMAN's WIFE next door. We had the grilled shrimp there. Really good. C-quarters is also a cheap place to buy diesel fuel. We liked it so much we stayed a second night.

very good fuel price before crossing gulf, 2012-11-04
Captain: , Mesa AZ (1609)

Just a good ol boy hang out, full of good talk & beer, Perfect place to wait for a weather window. Service is top notch. Docks are old but entirely adequate for our 44' boat.

Great Staff, 2012-10-09
Captain: , Boca Raton, FL (1522)

Although the docks are not as nice as the other marinas here, the dockmaster stayed a little after closing so we could get fuel and dock up. The people hanging around the store were very eclectic and really friendly. Don't know if I would stay here again but still think it is a great place. Went to restaurant next to IGA market for great shrimp. Wanted oysters but found out oyster season was closed down.

Great fuel price, 2012-10-07
Captain: , Erie, Pa. (1896)

Very accomodating, diesel was $3.55 on 10-14-11. Grocery, hardware & restaurants close. 76' boat, put across two docks to accomodate. 2 x 50 power no problem.

Stopped for diesel on 10-7-12 $3.60 gal.

Captain: , abbeville,la (55)

Great place,grocery just down street.People very nice.marc

Funky little marina, 2012-04-19
Captain: , Cape Coral FL (322)

This was a cool stop for us, but with only a 34' length the pilings were just a little too far apart for us and with the tidal flow made docking interesting to say the least. The marina crowd was friendly. I'd highly recommend trying to hit it at slack tide though.

It's the people, 2012-02-28
Captain: , Eagle Harbor, WA (471)

C-Quarters will always be one of those places where we will always regret not staying longer and we were there a month.

Rustic but accommodating, 2012-02-21
Captain: , Murfreesboro, TN (360)

We had everything we needed within walking distance. Helpful, friendly folks and the cheapest fuel around. A good place to wait out the weather. We wintered there and found it within driving distance to our home in TN. Upgrades on the canvas was done by Brooks who did a great job. Good food within walking distance. Negatives are few, small bathrooms and limited TV cable service.

Nice Facility, 2012-02-21
Captain: , Port Charlotte FL (221)

Nice facility. Very friendly staff and locals. Bathrooms are a bit on the rough side but that is the only drawback for us. $1/foot daily rate. $4/foot weekly rate. Very close to Ace hardware and a grocery store.

Captain: , Channel Islands, California (1149)

Of course we stopped here to wait for a weather window to cross the Gulf. The folks here were super nice and the town was full of nice folks as well. The docks are in great shape, if you are used to backing in and tying to bollards on 4 corners. This is hard for us but that does not detract at all from the experience because the folks there are there to help you when you come in. Their fuel dock is right there as is their pump out. There is water, electricity and cable tv all included in the $1 per foot cost. Most importantly, the folks who work there will coach you on the weather to make sure you have the right conditions for crossing. There are some cool restaurants in town. There is an IGA and an ACE Hardware across the street. Very convenient. We had a great time here and cannot think of any reason to stay at the other marinas on the Carrabelle River. This place was wonderful.

nice people - average facility, 2012-01-20
Captain: , Chattanooga (220)

If you dock stern-to, beware of shallow water at low tide. Dockmistress is nice. Shower and laundry are serviceable. Grocery and hardare stores are within spitting distance. Cable TV works.

Just right, 2011-11-30
Captain: , Cape Canaveral (1191)

Captain Kimmy the harbormaster is super and could not have been more friendly or helpful. She is a gem and her staff very helpful. This is a great spot to fuel up at the lowest diesel price for hundreds of miles in either direction. Carrabelle is small, quiet and quaint with food hardware, liquor, and resturarants only a short walk away. Docking can be tricky due to strong cross currents. This is a great place to hole up a while, particularly waiting for a weather window to cross the Gulf.

Laid back atmosphere, fine people run the place, facilities are more than adequate, close to essential shopping. Pricing is fair.

BEST DEAL IN TOWN, 2011-11-23
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (343)

We stayed here for several days waiting for a weather window to cross the gulf. Staff was very helpful; marina is located close to grocery, resturants,hardware, post office, etc. We travel with 2 large dogs and made it off the boat without trouble. Great bait and tackle in the marina store. Can't beat their fuel price. Why pay more by going up the creek?

This a protected and big hearted marina with all the basic services needed by a cruiser. Docks are a little dated but sound and functional, as are the bathrooms, showers and laundry. Convenient to drug store, IGA grocery, Ace hardware. The fixed short finger piers may be difficult to use for some boaters depending on their boat configuation and agility. The staff here is extremely welcoming and willing to help in anyway possible. You will not experience any negative attitude at this marina. Plus this is the least expensive in town with best(lowest) regional fuel price.

Great welcome. Average for facilities-laundry, showers, etc. but groceries/hardware are basically just across the street. Protected area so only had to deal with the tide - low-low

Good stop. Great fuel prices., 2011-02-16

Nice, friendly and helpful marina staff. Docks need some updating. Choose carefully, some slips have wood sticking out in wrong places and could damage a hull. Close hardware, grocer, liquor store. One or two blocks to town....not much there, but OK stop.

Captain Kim is an awesome and knowlegeable host. The facilites are great with large clean restrooms and a washer/dryer combinations. The grocery store and ACE hardware are an easy walk from the docks. Enjoy this perfect sample of gulf coast americanna.

C Quarters is a good place to rest up after crossing the gulf. Capt. Kim is the harbormaster and will do anything to make your stay more comfortable even to the point of helping to chase boat parts down. The ships store is well stocked with beer, fishing supplies and clothing. They have a laundry room with two new washers and dryers. Across the street are a grocery store and and hardware store with many marine and automotive parts. Diesel and gas are available with some of the lowest prices around. They have their own ice machine and sell it by the bucketful...not bagged. Watch the tide current when docking. The river is shallow and the current can rip through the docks. This is our second stop to C Quarters and would highly recommend you visit Capt. Kim and her staff.

Great people and friendly place. Full of local flavor and information. One of the most relaxing places to wait for a crossing window with a huge back porch/meeting place.

Very helpful in making your stay a great stay. Check the water level of the slip you are in. Bow in if questionalble. A burn barrel is used to burn trash on the right side of main office.
A easy walk to the grocery or hardware store.

We had a good feeling staying here. Locals gather on the back porch in the evening. Close to grocery, Ace Hardware, and library. Good price on diesel.

A nice marina with a great local flavor. Not fancy, but if you want local knowledge about the bend, you can get it all here. Shallow when we went in Oct 10, but they gave us good guidance, so there was no problem. Nearby fish market is world class. Close hardware and groceries.
