Reviews for Caloosa Cove Marina and Resort
overpriced, 2016-04-15
Captain: , Sheboygan, WI (70)

$3.00 a foot on 12/28/15 for old bathrooms, no pool for transients, staff is rude.

Pretty loose operation., 2016-04-13
Captain: , Bradenton, FL (90)

I don't think they get many transients. More of a dry storage operation for small powerboats than a marina. Greg, the dockmaster was helpful when he was around. Not convenient to groceries or restauants.. other than Habanos on site.

Nice location, but **** attitude., 2013-08-08
Captain: , Islamorada, Florida Keys (319)

We went down to take a look at this place in hopes of moving here, after seeing some of the reviews. The location is nice with easy access to the ocean, and not too far from the Channel 5 bridge.

The dockmaster wasn't there when we stopped by, so we had to call the following day. That's when we found out that the one live aboard they have is grandfathered in. They aren't letting anymore in. Also the guy on the phone had a horrible attitude and was extremely rude when answering the few basic standard questions we had.

Great Value, 2013-07-08
Captain: , Fort Lauderdale, Fl (20)

I have had my 48 MY in this marina for two months now. The value is excellent. For $15/ft plus utilities, you get access to the 24/hr pool, shuffle board, beach volley and tennis courts. There is a hardware store, bait & tackle, and convenience store. Inexpensive and good Cuban restaurant, and a bar open until 2 am. There is coin laundry, bathrooms, showers and charcoal grill by the private beach (that you can not swim since it is all mud) Outstanding value for your money, considering that everything else is in the 20's/ft, and do not have a third of the ammenities and convenience. The drawbacks: you gotta take your boat out of the marina in the event of a storm coming into the keys, and your choices are the mangroves, or leave the area all together. You can not take it to a yard as they do not have space, and you can not even pre-pay reservations for the next hurricane. The second drawback is that is cosmetically challenged. The third is that I come in or leave blowing up during low tide, and I have a 3.10 ft draft. The fourth is that when is windy, my boat is almost impossible and too heavy to move by hand. I will be relocating due to the hurricane season, otherwise it is too convenient with a great price.

Great diesel prices, 2013-07-05
Captain: , St. Petersburg, FL (250)

Filled up here before heading down to Hawk's Cay. Caloosa prices for diesel all in (tax inc) was $3.65 compared to Hawk's $5.02.

Essentials, plus there's a bar, 2013-04-23
Captain: , Islamorada, FL (147)

You can get fuel, beer, ice, bait, and snacks. Out front there's a a cuban/italian fusion restaurant and the Dead Animal Lounge is a locals bar near the beach/slips.

Diesel fuel, water, ice and essentials, 2012-05-20
Captain: , Punta Gorda (50)

With a 43' Mainship, I need 4.2' under the boat. I came in with tide falling and +1.0' over mean without a problem. Though after fueling the mud was kicking up in the prop wash at the pier, no problem going out. The store and fuel dock are separate and a very short walk to the end of the pier, there are 2-3 stairs, so you will carry anything you purchase. It is a nice facility with fair fuel prices. The store has ice, drinks, snack essentials, bait, etc.

Small but Nice marina, 2012-02-27
Captain: , Lighthouse Point (10)

Caloosa is a small marina, but has all the services you need. Great bait and tackle, with a full Hardware store, and grocery.

The mouth of the marina is shallow at low tide, about 3.5 ft, but its a mud/sand bottom
