Reviews for Calusa Island Marina
Gem in the Widlerness, 2017-08-31
Captain: , Apollo Beach (244)

We docked our powercat here on trip to Keys. Nice facility. Clean and well kept. Power and water was good. Floating docks but no bumpers so have fenders ready. Entering stay between unmarked pilings and island to starboard. Compensating for high tide looks like controlling depth would be 6 feet at low but maybe less as staff said tide was higher than normal with the SE winds. Surprisingly a little rocky on the T-head of B dock with SE winds fighting falling tide. The fantastic staff offered the inside basin (completely protected) but per design no breeze and a little buggy so stayed on B T-head. Goodlands town walking distance but as August so quite you could hear a pin drop. Nothing much here but 5 stars as it is a gem in the wilderness.

Great marina, friendly staff, 2015-05-29
Captain: , Miami Beach, FL (50)

We used this marina to launch from Memorial Day weekend 2015, left the truck and trailer overnight for three nights.

The staff was extremely friendly and the marina was very secure. Will use this marina again!

Floating dock depth, 2015-01-23
Captain: , hampstead.n.c. (219)

We spent 2 nights at the marina. The facilities, scenery, staff were very good. We have a 3.5 ft draft. On both mornings we were hard aground. So we would advise boaters to check the tide schedule for this location and ask the dockmaster if slip can be entered/exited during low tide. We had to wait until 2.5 hours after low tide to be able to leave. This is the reason we only ranked it at 4 stars.

Fast Service with a Smile, 2015-01-04
Captain: , Florida (31)

We had a minor incident that required some fast thinking. Fortunately for us their staff was quick and motivated! Thanks for saving the day guys!

Also their facility is very nice and They have two fully functional forklifts!

Enjoyable Marina, 2013-12-01
Captain: , Orange, MA (70)

Spent one night here on November 29, 2013. We were buddy boating with another boat which anchored near the marina. Long walk to the showers and ship's store. Showers were OK. Easy walk into Goodland and four restaurants. No other stores or shops other than Fia's.

Very nice marina, 2013-08-27
Captain: , Dunedin (61)

We came in after hours to stay for one night. The onsite dockmaster came to our boat to give us the bathroom / shower code, and was very friendly. The showers were very cean, and the staff was very courteous. Only negatives were that they don't sell beer, the nearest restaurant is almost one mile away, and the "no see'ums" will attack you really bad.

Very enjoyble facility, 2013-01-19
Captain: , Rhinebeck (20)

We stayed for 3 days in January and found the facility and staff wonderful to work with. As mentioned the laundry and showers were very clean. The club even had a small herb garden out front and we were allowed to help ourselves! We had friends come onboard for a sail and when we asked, having checked out, if we could park for a moment at the dock the following day to offload them and their equipment, Cheryl was most accomodating and said no problem; saving us having to do a dinghy shuttle. Getting to the slips is a bit of a walk through the mangroves, but it's a lovely walk and worth it for the view.

A great place to stay, 2012-10-22
Captain: , Ft. Collins, CO (331)

We spent several months last winter, 2011/12, and found the marina to be wonderful. Very clean, pumpout at slip, newer floating concrete docks, all wood surface boards being replaced as we left, and very helpful staff. 3 miles to Marko Island and shopping and several good restaurants in Goodland which is a 10 min walk. A beautiful setting in the mangroves with good privacy from the shore side. Monthly rates are prorated in but on the first of the month you pay for the entire month regardless of when you leave so plan your departure accordingly. We will return in Jan 2013 for several months. A good central area of FL to base from.

Highly recommend, 2012-06-16
Captain: , North Myrtle Beach, SC (3210)

Would rate higher, but the price is too high. Staff very nice and helpful and we highly recommend taking the inside route from here to Marco. At R22, do not take the charted deeper wate to the north of the little island, but make sure you follow the markers, even though the chart shows only 1'. Also, take the east side of Coon Key even though the markers take you to the west side. Much deeper water there - give Coon Key a side berth, meaning stay more to the east. It would be nice if Active Captain placed a flag at these two locations. We saw at least 5.5' at mid tide.

Wonderful faciliity, 2012-05-06
Captain: , Galena, MD (1856)

This is one of the most beautiful settings we have encountered. The marina is just small boat storage sheds. fuel and a significant Charter boat fleet. The Yacht Club is the location for the floating docks. Docks are in great shape, pumpout at each slip, and friendly people. To access the docks you walk thru a mangrove on a beautiful wooden pier and the view is of the thousand islands. Great sunsets, dock fishing and watching the dolphins and manatees. Restrooms and showers are immaculate and two new washers and dryers ($2/$1.50) were installed. Goodland is known as the "drinking town with a fishing problem". Nice restaurants, local people are as friendly as it gets and then there is Stan's Great place to relax and enjoy.

Well kept marina. Manatees & Sea Turtles, 2012-04-07
Captain: , Dunedin, FL (7375)

Spent 2 comfortable nights here. Clean, floating concrete docks with free pump jout available at each slip. A few boats were parked in the inner harbor. Main dock is off a wooden walkway which surrounds small island. Clean showers/restroom/laundry. Plenty of grass to walk your dog. Numerous restuarants a short bike ride into Goodland. Grocery a bit further at 3 miles to Marco Island. Several of the resturants very busy and have entertainment. I left my wallet on a picnic table, someone turned it in to the ship's store. More than a dozen Thousand Island Charter boats make their home here, good place to do some fishing.

The only place to stop in Goodland, 2012-03-14
Captain: , Austin, Texas (1774)

If you are not anchoring, Calusa is an excellent marina to stopover. The Dockmaster Andrew went out of his way to show us around the facility, and he even took us in his golf cart to Stan's on Sunday. That is something you just have to see. The facility is separated into two docks by mangroves, so you walk a bit to get to shore. But shoreside facilities are very nice and clean and they can store your boat through the storm season. Talk to Andrew.

Top Notch Marina, 2012-03-03
Captain: , Unionville, IN (221)

Excellent ramp and wash down facility. Docks are a short walk through a few mangroves. Very quiet. Staff are very helpful.
$2/ft...30 ft. min.

Not a good value for small boats, 2012-03-02
Captain: , Racine (121)

We trailer a small 21 foot boat and stay on it occasionally. This marina has a $2.00 /ft charge with a 30' minimum. Not unheard of if the marina is truly a resort with resort amenities. However, this place is just a marina with little in the way of amenities.

We stayed for one week and during our stay even the laundry was shut down due to installation of new machines. The work on the laundry also resulted in cold showers one morning.

If you are trailering a small boat in this area you may want to find a place that gives you more value for your money.

All around Nice, 2012-02-23
Captain: , Charlestown (946)

If you want a serene environment this is the place. Very quiet with beautiful views. The staff are happy and helpful. It is a bit of a walk to the bathrooms, laundry and office, but is a walk through mangroves and is quite nice. If you want to hire a captain to take you out to fish they are here.
There are actually two facilities here the Yacht Club and the Marina. For $1.00 a foot you can tie up in the marina, but really have no services. The Yacht Club is $2.00 per foot. Nice clean bathrooms for the Yacht Club. Publix (grocery store) and other shopping is about 4 miles away and if you time it right someone from the staff may take you while they run errands. The Town, Goodland, is a short walk with little to offer, but a small shop, restarants (go to "Little Bar) and a post office. If you time it on Sundays they usually have a shindig with some really eccentric people. A good stop if you are passing through!

Focused on Fishing, 2012-01-01
Captain: , Pinnacle, NC, USA (1422)

This place caters to fishing afficionados, and from the catch we saw being cleaned, with good reason. Their floating cement piers are top notch and extensive, making it a long walk to the club house, laundry, showers. The lack of on-premises or even proximate restaurants and/or grocery keeps them from geting 5*

Nice Friendly Facility, 2011-03-16
Captain: , Palm Beach Gardens, FL (1997)

We only stopped to top up our tanks and their price was the best around.
With the current price of gas and diesel and spending over a thousand dollars to fill up now, the scottish side of me is coming out looking for a deal.
The staff were very helpful with directions and the marina was very protected just be careful of the shallow area when turning into the basin from the main channel where they are located as it is shallow.

Best Ramp on the SW corner of FLA., 2011-01-07
Captain: , Ft Lauderdale, fl (34)

I have a 26'trailer sailor, and this is the best spot to launch.

barron river in everglades city was good before it closed. rod and gun club in everglades city has a tree over the ramp (no mastup launch), and the rest in choko or e-city are for skiffs only).

in marco there is a good ramp, but some wave action (unprotected bay).

friendly staff, very small store.

Should rate separately, 2010-04-24
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (334)

The marina is not a marina; no slips. Would rate 2. The yacht club is not a yacht club( no facilities or organization) but is a marina! Great docks and helpful and friendly dockmaster and live-aboards. Would rate 4. No over the air TV. no WiFi, and almost no cell phone.

Yacht Club, 2010-01-10
Captain: , Crystal River (33)

The marina and Yacht Club are separate entities at Calusa Island. I would give a 5 to the Yacht Club side and a 4 or less to the Marina side as the help in Ships Store leave a lot to be desired.The concrete floating docks are top notch, with individual slip pump outs, beautiful area and very clean and safe. There are a lot of privately owned slips but quite a few that are leased as well for monthly or nightly. Fishing can't be beat!

Stans is nearby., 2009-09-25
Captain: , ft myers beach (790)

If you are there for a Sunday afternoon, walk over or dink over to Stan's for a wonderful time. Food okay, but bars are great fun with live entertainment.

Laid back, 2008-01-26
Captain: , fairland (2653)

Nice out of the way place. New, clean facilities. Mostly dockominiums (I was told), but still several transient slips available. Don;t know about droppin the hook nearby as many of the coves appear to have less than 4' MLW. Great casual restaurants a short walk away.

Calusa Island on Goodland, 2007-03-17
Captain: , Naples, Fl. (74)

Calusa Island Marina is located at Goodland, which happens to be on the southeastern tip of Marco Island, but is a century away from the snobishness you will find on Marco Island as a whole. They have great facilities and there is lots of small coves in the area to drop the hook.
