Reviews for Indiantown Marina
great stop between locks, 2016-08-29
Captain: , Boca Raton, FL (995)

We came off the lake just as the lock was shutting down for the night (4:30pm) and too late to make the St Lucie lock so we decided to stop in here for the night. Great stop. The facility with the showers was clean. We walked to town to have dinner and found that the Italian restaurant will pick you up if they are not busy. We went to Guatmex for a great dinner. Will definitely stop here again.



Good DIY yard with helpfull staff, 2016-04-11
Captain: , Southport, NC (637)

We stayed here for three weeks diagnosing and repairing running gear vibration issue. Wound up with transmission overhaul. Graham and his staff could not have been for helpful. They treated us fairly with a fair price for the work.



Good place to get work done, 2016-03-14
Captain: , Louisville, KY (347)

Had the boat stored over hurricane season, spent a month refitting. Graham and his staff do good work at reasonable prices. Town doesn't offer much and it's 20 miles to Jupiter or Stuart .Snowbird community was not particularly friendly





Right on ICW, 2016-02-25
Captain: , Erie, Pa. (1896)

Nice marina, nice folks, lots of picnic area and boaters lounge. Wifi weak and sometimes inop. $1.00 per foot.



Don't try to call on a Sunday, 2016-02-22
Captain: , St. Petersburg (749)

We called a few days before our expected arrival and were told we would need to call on the day of arrival to see if they had a spot for us. We did call (at noon on a Sunday) but there was no answer, and no one called us back. We later found out that the office staff leaves at 2, so we don't know why we didn't get a reply to our voicemail. Since this marina is a bit remote with no other options for miles, we did not want to risk going there close to dark and not being able to find a place to park.



Great place for DIY, 2016-01-13
Captain: , Hingham, MA (1079)

We specifically came here to haul our boat so we can sand and paint the bottom ourselves. The marina is very accomodating and everyone is friendly. As soon as we pulled up to the dock we were invited to the patio area by several other cruisers for sundowners. Nice patio and lounge area. The camp ground in-between the DIY area and the marina is a bit odd. I would come here again to work on my boat. The marina seems to always be full and people do not leave the transient slips on time. I recommend making reservations in advance - we did have to call two weeks in advance for a haul out.
There is not too much near here and the area is pretty run down. The grocery store was pricey and did not have a big selection. Glad we had provisioned before coming here.



Mixed review, 2015-12-13
Captain: , Erie, PA (587)

The price is right, the facilities nice enough and the office staff is friendly. However, as opposed to other reviewers we found the live-aboard community to be less than friendly. As we arrived on a Saturday for an overnight stay, the office staff invited us to their evening BBQ where the marina provides the meat and boaters side dishes. When asking some of the local live-aboards about the event they seemed to make it clear that we would be intruding. Maybe it is because we have a trawler and the majority are sail boaters and RV people. We elected to cook aboard the boat. I am sure we won't be back. It would be four stars if it wasn't for that.



Just lovely!, 2015-11-23
Captain: , Charleston, SC (81)

Arrived just after closing on a Sunday at 2:30. We were just ahead of a big black thunderstorm and the receptionist stayed to help. A Canadian sailboaters helped my wife tie up skillfully as it began to pour! Friendly, competent, helpful, inexpensive and oh so quaint! A perfect stop before the lake.



Great stop on a cool trip across, 2015-09-27
Captain: , Nashville, TN (190)

Great folks. Laid back and the new transient dock / seawall is awesome. Stopped here waiting for Billy to get back to us regarding our tipping under the railroad bridge. Stop in and you'll meet some really great people.



Great, friendly people and a quiet atmosphere, 2015-07-02
Captain: , Titusville, FL (50)

Great folks who are happy to give you a hand and advice. Spent July 1 there after launching at their ramp to boat over to Fort Myers. They recommended a great Italian restaurant, Dee Stefanos, that is about a mile away (we had our truck and drove).



Left feeling very ripped off, 2015-07-01
Captain: , Fort Myers, FL (30)

I was stranded at Indiantown due to a failure of my propellor shaft. I had to have the repairs completed at Indiantown since I had no way of moving the boat without a functioning propellor. While the boat was going to be hauled out to fix the propellor shaft, I thought I might as well have some other repairs completed at the same time (replace the VHF antenna, fix the depth sounder, paint the bottom, and add zinc anodes). In the end, the propellor shaft was repaired but the costs were exhorbitant. The other repairs were never completed, but were left half complete, were questionable whether they were completed, or just not done. I cancelled the paint job because it would have caused too much additional delay. The VHF antenna was purchased but never installed despite having access to the boat for 12 days; yet I was charged for the antenna and charged $85 for inspecting the old antenna. The depth sounder was "calibrated" but performed no better after leaving the marina than it did before I arrived. They never did add any zinc anodes. I was nickled and dimed to death. I was even charged for labor for someone to search for parts on the Internet, even though they never located or ordered the parts (the zinc anodes). They even had the gaul to charge me an additional $500 for "repairs" that I did not request but were performed between the time I settled my bill in the morning and the time I left the marina the next day, such as fixing some trim on my rubrail. In the end, I was charged well over $4000 even though they had confirmed the bill was going to be $2800 just three days before I departed. I've been told the work would have cost me $1500-$2000 here in my home port.



Fine Quality Slice of "Old Florida", 2015-06-27
Captain: , Sarasota, FL (270)

Delightful place to stay when transiting the Okeechobee Waterway. This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. Staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. Very easy to get in/out with our 44' trawler. Town is close by. Rode our bikes to Guata-Mex restaurant for a nice meal. Marina is a great place to relax. Will definitely return.

Great Stop on the Way Across to Okeechobee, 2015-05-28
Captain: , St. Thomas USVI (10)

We stopped here for the night with our 55', 6.5' draft motor yacht. The lake level is currently 12.94' and we had no problems entering the channel to the marina. This is a hidden gem with nice facilities and friendly staff. There is a lovely garden sitting area, BBQ, fire pits, free wifi and a free shuttle service if you want to go to town for dinner.



Enjoyed our stay here, 2015-02-11
Captain: , Cocoa FL (400)

Somewhat narrow entry channel which made entering with a 15 Kt west wind tricky, but once inside were well-protected from winds. We were met at the dock for assistance with lines. Very helpful and friendly staff, not to mention the live-aboards and "snow birds" we met. We had a great Mexican lunch at Guatemex which was a short walk away. We can't speak to service issues or fuel price, but we enjoyed the atmosphere enough that we plan on making this a regular stop during our travels.



Fair price and good location, 2015-02-04
Captain: , United States (2528)

This was right where we needed it, halfway between Clewiston and Stuart. We stayed at the face dock. They have a small chandlery well-stocked with marine hardware, and a very nice patio seating area with faux-wicker chairs, tables, umbrellas, and even a fire pit. Easy on/off from the OWW. We walked into town, abiout a mile, and had a nice dinner at Dee-Stefanos next door to the IGA supermarket.



Great stop before or after crossing Lake O, 2015-01-14
Captain: , Lizella GA (1414)

They said they were full with nowhere to put me but when I told them I was having motor problems they let me spend night on fuel dock and promised to find a place for my boat. Eric the service manager came down and looked at my problems as soon as I got in. Marina staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice restooms and showers along with a great screened in porch tv room and kitchen. Prices were reasonable. Make sure you meet the big teddy bear called Moose. He lives in the marina and is so friendly and helpful. I asked about getting groceries and he said "jump in my car" and away we went to the IGA. He waited while I shopped and then brought me back. Great guy! Will stay here again.



Not pleased at first but service manager worked it out., 2014-12-19
Captain: , Rockport TX (112)

Bought a boat in Fort Lauderdale and decided to store the boat here for a few months until I have time to come back and move the boat back to Texas. I had a locksmith come out to cut a key for my boat, and the OWNER of the marina ran the locksmith off because he didn't have workers comp insurance. The locksmith is an owner-operator and carries liability insurance, and he tried to explain the the marina owner that WC insurance is for employees and not owners. Marina owner still ran him off so I didn't get my work done. Service manager Eric called me back and got it all worked out in the end however.



Do not buy diesel here, 2014-11-17
Captain: , Cedar Point, Sandusky, OH (390)

they are $1.00 more than many surrounding marinas



HORRENDOUS MECHANIC!, 2014-11-17
Captain: , Green Cove Springs, FL (20)

I came to haul-out to re power and do a bottom job. I scheduled a time for afternoon. They put me on the face dock with no explanation. Eric, the mechanic, INSISTED that I pay for a whole month. I told him I had a looming death in the family and needed the repower in a timely manner. He then removed my engine and left me sitting for five days. He put a jig to fit new engine, Beta certified, but kept getting it wrong. It took a week to get a quote for bottom paint....after listening to him call me a quitter for not doing it myself. He told me I could buy paint elsewhere but to come to him first and he could probably give a better price. I got price and went to him and he went off on me! I was floored! He told me he called the place up and told them he would stop business with them if they sold it to me. Then he told me I was a liar. Then he raised the paint price and called me a troublemaker! I bought my engine and had it delivered there. Eric opened it without my consent and also took my upgraded deluxe ignition panel. I asked for it back and he gave me a paper with it showing I bought the simple version. I had an invoice from distributor and had to prove it was mine to get it back. At that point I wrote a letter stating all work was to be stopped in the event he reached estimate (which was double than two others I had) or the month of dockage ended. In between all this he felt it acceptable to point his finger at me and bark at me to "COME!", "CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES!", and "YOU WILL NOT wash your hands that way". As a solo sailing woman, I was very upset. But it didn't stop there. If I asked him to get my engine done he'd go off on me. Over and OVER again, the whole yard could hear him. He tried the same with other boaters and they yelled right back and told me I should do the same. I stood my ground firmly with no yelling and he apologized only to do it again the next day. Talking to him was like talking to two different people....I never knew whether I'd get ranting Eric or calm Eric. He got my shaft wrong, and the engine kept being put in and taken out because he couldn't get it right. (Chipped paint everywhere) He kept confronting me because "I was so mean and nasty to him because I wouldn't talk to him". He finally cornered me on my boat and asked me again what "my problem was". This was after he literally screamed at me that I was making his life miserable (this was for asking him to put agreed upon hoses on my engine). I had tried to avoid him at all costs by then. I told him his rants and mood swings were really uncomfortable and I didn't want to be a part of it. He said he was glad we could talk about it then followed by telling me I was the most obnoxious, nastiest, rudest person he'd ever met! I just looked at him. I had friend's husband do the sea trial with me since there was absolutely NO WAY I was going on boat alone with him on it. My stay here was truly a nightmare. The verbal abuse was endless. He tried to take my warranty card on my new engine and I refused...telling him he could have a copy. Wiring was pulled out and my cabin lights, win gen, and booster. I also had to clean out all the sharp metal shavings throughout my bilge and rugs. ..to save my dog's feet and my bilge pump. I got out of there not finishing my waterline paint or buffing deck...in three weeks. No sleep. Had to pay full month plus face dock twice.

Note regarding marina...the staff there are absolutely wonderful...except for Eric. The store is well stocked, lots of black ants, flies, and Mosquitos, but a nice eating area and bbqs on weekend. Store walking distance. Boaters were really nice. One helped me install thruhulls into the night so I could leave (another one of Eric's rants for asking for quote). If you need a car rental they don't pick you up.



Motor boat based here, 2014-11-12
Captain: , Indiantown, FL (70)

we have been based in Indiantown for the last 5 years - love it. You need to go there to find out. The lifting crew, Jesse etc are really excellent and very careful. Boats all tied down to stakes in case of strong winds. Early winter is a blast with everyone coming down south - barbeques each weekend with meat provided by marina and everyone takes a dish. DIY facility good and resonably priced.

ALL the staff are friendly and helpful.



Good Mechanics, 2014-11-03
Captain: , Midland, ON (20)

Eric (head mechanic) and his guys took great care of us. We blew our starboard transmission, which they replaced, in addition to tuning up the engines, boat paint, etc. The marina has a nice laundry near the work yard. Nice screened-in area and attached kitchen available to everyone. Lovely shaded large tiled patio with tables and unbrellas. Indiantown itself leaves alot to be desired. If you want fresh meat and produce, go to Stuart. Most restaurants are Guatamalian.



Solid, Clean Marina, nice stop along the Okeechobee waterway, 2014-10-12
Captain: , Tarpon Springs (250)

Clean, well stocked marina with friendly helpful staff. Interesting cross section of boat owners and cruisers pass through.



Back again in 2014, 2014-09-07
Captain: , Key Largo (5330)

This trip, in 08 fall, they welcomed us to Indian town, rates were $1 a foot, was a much better experience.
Still, just one one place to eat,and islolated, but , where else can you go?
Back again 2010, they did a great job cleaning the place up and fixing it up and din't raise the prices!
Destefino's Italian will pick you up. 772-597-5600
In 2014 stored my trawler here for 6 months. be warned, you will get tons of mildew on the exterior of the boat. Have your boat covered to protect it.
Good working boat yard.



Great mechanics at marina, 2014-08-17
Captain: , Port Dalhousie, On.,Ca (20)

Had alot of work done on our boat: Boss Eric Bamburg and staff (Tim, Barry & Steve). Great guys and mechanics. Recommend getting repaired/serviced here. Eric is extremely knowledgeable about boats and very helpful.



Starting point, 2014-08-07
Captain: , Charlotte Harbor, FL (263)

Picked up our new (to us) boat here. They moved the boat from a storage area to a work area so I could get it ready. No-hassle launch and we were off! Lots of services and stores nearby.




great Stop, 2014-07-26
Captain: , Salem,AL (120)

They close early on Saturday so made arrangements on the phone. Easy in and out. everything close. We would like to spend a few days next time through



Great Place and Fun people, 2014-07-06

Hidden Gem, 2014-07-02
Captain: , Perry, Kansas (317)

An excellent overnight (or two) passing through the Okeechobee Waterway. Outstanding staff, nice facilities. Shopping and dining within a 15 minute walk. As a previous reviewer stated, the Italian Restuarant is a great find with outstanding food.



Nice place-not killer priced, 2014-06-14
Captain: , Phoenix, AZ (960)

Stopped here for 1 night while heading west. Clean, quiet place. Some bugs after sundown. Call Dee-Stefano's
restaurant in town. They will come and get you and take you to the restaurant, food was excellent. Restaurant is next to grocery store.



Just a great place., 2014-06-02
Captain: , Terra Ceia, FL (91)

We stopped here (once again) as we crossed the Okeechobee waterway. This marina is in an almost perfect position if you are traveling westbound (in preparation for an early morning crossing of the lake, which is recommended.) It is also in a good position for eastbound cruisers to stop. They easily accomodated our 61' boat with a 4'10" draft. The lake level was around 12.50, and we tied up to the face dock and had 8.5' of water. At $1.00 a foot, it's a good deal. There is an italian restaurant in town which will deliver to your boat, or will pick you up/return you home if you want to eat at the restaurant. Staff is very helpful. Part of the fun of using the Okeechobee waterway is that it is a "time warp" back into old Florida. This isn't a luxury marina, but it doesn't pretend to be. It's fine just as it is!



Friendly Staff, 2014-05-17
Captain: , Punta Gorda (66)

Stayed on facedock for two nights waiting for front to pass before tipping under the RR bridge. Free WiFi.



Great service, 2014-05-11
Captain: , Soddy Daisy, TN (40)

The service manager Eric is the best thing that has happened to boating in a long, long time!



Pleasant Evening, 2014-05-03
Captain: , Yorktown, VA (952)

Great little marina with friendly people, staff and slip holders. Very well kept, good price. Will stop again. Many folks were preparing to leave boats there for the summer and/or doing work themselves or having the marina do the work.





Job Well Done, 2014-04-16
Captain: , Green Cove Springs (71)

Came to Indiantown to use their DIY work area for two weeks. Had them prep bottom. Work done well and at a reasonable cost. Eric, the service deptartment manager, is knowledgable and runs an effecient operation. Marina staff and yard crew friendly.

One job led to another and in a month we finally got back in the water with all projects done.

Had service department correct a shaft problem which took some additional time. Work well done and priced reasonably.

I will be back to do more next year as they allow live aboard boaters in the DIY yard. Power, water, and pump out available as are showers and laundry. Area restaurants deliver food and town, though small, has Ace Hardware & Lumber Yard, NAPA, Radio Shack, and an IGA which is well stocked.



Nice place, 2014-03-25
Captain: , Pensacola, FL (532)

We were assigned a slip at the fuel dock, seemed strange, but it was late in the day, and we were leaving early, sort of, the next day. Really large boat yard and storage facility behind marina, a number of liveaboards here too, very friendly staff. I wouldn't recomend swimming in the creek as we noticed a few gators prowling these waters.



A good location on the Okachobee waterway, 2014-03-11
Captain: , Palm Beach Gardens, FL (1897)

This marina is a good stop, well protected and pretty laid back. There was no TV cable service but the dockage was only $1.00 a ft but a new trend we are seeing at marina's is a daily 50amp charge which is pretty high. Plenty of depth in the marina for deep drafted boats.
Great stop to leave your boat for the summer out of the Hurricane surge.



Working Marina, 2014-03-04
Captain: , East Falmouth, MA (1533)

Narrow channel going in, and very crowded when we spent the night there on Jan. 23. The staff was helpful and friendly and made every effort to accomodate us in spite of being full. Long walk into town was made worthwhile when we discovered a BBQ place. Can't remember the name, just follow your nose. Terrific smoked pork for $5.95/lb.



Second time here, 2014-03-04
Captain: , Chesapeake (261)

After a long day, 75 miles, we tied up to their fuel dock for the night. Great respite! No meals without a car though.



Nickels and dimes equal serious dollars, 2014-03-03
Captain: , Port Ludlow (60)

We stored our boat from 3-13 until 1-14 at this facility. People are friendly and the grounds pleasant, however, the marina will nickle and dime you (each move of the vessel is priced, jackstands are RENTED every month, inspections are extra, vessel stored on bare ground not concrete, tie downs not tended. But even more upsetting, when we asked that the 4HP 4cycle mercury outboard be serviced, the response was great. Outboard was taken off the boat but three weeks later when we arrived to launch the vessel the outboard wasn't ready. We were told that parts were needed. After the parts arrived, work was accomplished and motor delivered to our vessel. Motor started quickly and sounded good but would die when at idle. We mentioned this to the service manager who had the motor picked up and adjusted. Imagine my surprise when the bill came to $890 for a tune up!!! At no time were we advised that this service was running a hefty bill although we asked for a quote with the original request, and when we suggested that a new carberator would cost only $300, we were told that was correct if you could get one! Since when are you charged an additional two hours of labor to correct a problem that wasn't fixed before delivering the motor? Welll that's Indiantown for you and beware.



Good stop with deep water, 2014-02-22
Captain: , Palm Beach Gardens (452)

Stopped here on 2/13/14. The entrance channel and guest dock was 9.0 ft deep with the lake level at 14.01 ft and the Port Mayaca Lock open to the lake. Friendly people and a good stop along the way.



Good Value, 2014-02-20
Captain: , Beaufort, S.C. (570)

We agree with the comments of previous reviewers. Basic Marina, Staff all helpful and friendly. If in the area we would stop again for a night.



A pleasant place, 2014-02-13
Captain: , Newcastle upon Tyne (463)

Stopped here for 2 nights waiting for a cold front to pass. Smallish sheltered marina, with normal facilities but no shop or restaurant. Lady running office arranged for a kind gent to take us to the grocery shop in town about a mile away. Italian restaurant there will pick you up if you eat with them. Free wifi, free filtered water. Good value



Great stop before crossing, 2014-01-20
Captain: , St. James, NC (253)

Have passed here several times but decided to stop on this trip. We're glad we did. Facilities are basic for a marina but great for repairs. A large number of live aboards who are friendly and very helpful with docking. Staff is extremely nice. As stated by others the patio with tables and chairs for boaters is really neat.
We will stop again on the way home in the spring.



Nice stopover prior to Okeechobee crossing heading west, 2014-01-14
Captain: , Palm Coast, Florida (311)

This is a boat yard, so lots of work going on. It has all the basics for a stop over with laundry and showers. Facilities aren't fancy, but they are clean. The historic Seminole Inn picked four of us up and drove us to their Sunday Buffet. It was a great experience. A very nice feature of the marina are the large area of tables with umbrellas and the large tree with Christmas Lights. It is a great place to socialize. The marina is about a mile from town and there is an IGA foodstore, Dollar General, Burger King and McDonalds. There is a post office as well. This marina is limited on transient space and some of the slips require tying up to posts that are only about 15 foot from a floating dock you must back into. The staff was very friendly and helpful in docking the boat. They really try to be accomodating to transients with their limited transient space.



Looks like paradise, 2013-12-08
Captain: , Sault Ste Marie, MI (240)

Similar to a previous reveiw, when we got here after making a reservation the marina appeared full. We were able to squeeze onto a face dock with some help from another transient. The office closes at 2 pm on Saturday so we were not able to register but the power was availalble and the bathrooms were unlocked. The bathrooms and showers are prettyi minimal with a two bathrooms, one men and one women and two showers, one men and one women. The showers did not have water closets. The tree covered patio area was pleasant and the kitlchen area, which we did not use was a nice touch. The Seminole Restaurant mentioned in some guides does not serve dinner, only lunch and Sunday brunch. This was a fun marina to stop in because of the palm and banyon trees, the throwback style and the friendly boaters.



Great Marina, 2013-11-28
Captain: , Green Cove Springs, Fl (410)

One night stop headed west. Called ahead & made reservation. Prior to arriving all spots were taken however they made room for us at the haulout wall. Perfect spot. Staff was extremely helpful in docking. They suggested an Italian restaurant that would come pick us up. Good suggestion food excellent.



Uncertain about this stop, 2013-09-30
Captain: , Leland, Mississippi (20)

Medical problems forced me to find a place in Florida to haul out and I ended up at the Indiantown Marina, where my first impression was fair to good, especially as everyone seemed so nice. But on my return trip in October 2013, I went by the office to check in and then went to my boat to do a visual exam to see what might need doing beside bottom paint. The yard manager, Eric, came by and asked me what I was doing and if I had checked in at the office. Even when I told him I had done so, he asked the exact same question again a few seconds later %u2014 giving me what passes for his piercing look in the eyes, I reckon! Then, presto, he produced a pocket knife and pushed the blade between my shaft and rubber gasket -- proclaiming I would need a new cutlass bearing. I had a trusted repairman in Georgia put in a new cutlass bearing when I bought the boat about 11 months earlier, and when I told the yard manager this, he allowed as to how the bearing might do for another year or two. In short, his attitude and quick examination and diagnosis turned me off this marina in a big way. I'm actually considering leaving without the needed bottom paint, just because of that initial impression of the yard manager. While he later warmed to me a bit %u2014 or seemed to, the damage had been done.



Nice , relaxing , place, 2013-08-13
Captain: , Montgomery Alabama (1102)

The marina was a nice rest stop after doing the lake . It has a nice shady sitting area , screened in porch , clean bathrooms and kitchen topside. The staff is very helpful and friendly , when they are here , but they keep "bankers" hours , so you are on your own . Price is a dollar a foot plus $6.00 for electricity . Met some very interesting people while here . Will come back for sure .



Wonderful Stop, 2013-06-27
Captain: , Panama City, Florida (511)

A great place to stop on the way across the lake. The marina is low key, but clean, attractive and very friendly. Good wi-fi. Excellent protection, no tide, no current, no wakes, and the rates are a welcome break from East Coast prices. Their main business appears to be long term dry storage of sailboats and trawlers and the storage yard seemed very well organized and well kept. I could stay here awhile and I would definitely call Indiantown Marina if I needed long term dry storage for a cruising boat.



OK for a night, 2013-05-12
Captain: , Sarasota (1427)

Arrived after 1 pm on Sunday - be advised - they close at 1pm. So we tied up at fuel dock - made for an easy get away. Decent restaurant in town - maybe 3/4 mile walk. Very good internet. Protected harbor - about 10 ft throughout.



Old Florida, 2013-05-11
Captain: , Punta Gorda, Fl (880)

Located between Stuart and Lake O. Hours are limited, so if you get there late you are on your own. Dockage is tight, esp. in high season, narrow fairways. High season lots of liveaboards and you may not get a spot. Showers/laundry minimal. Screened in porch for respite. Spotty wi-fi, if any. Far from any services. Weekends a car may pick you up and take you to town to a nice Italian place. This is very small town rural FL so don't expect much.



different and friendly, 2013-05-08
Captain: , Ft Myers (91)

Diesel was $4.57 on May 8, 2013. Friendly people, nice large seating area under trees. One floating dock, alligators and turtles.



Glad we stopped here, 2013-04-25
Captain: , St. Louis, MO (1787)

Stayed here for 5 nights on our way east (wife got sick). Nice marina with helpful staff. Kind of a Florida-old-timey-campy-resorty kind of vibe. As previoulsy mentioned a very large well appointed patio area. Pump out at your dock/boat via using a golf cart mounted pump out pump. Handy. The walls are large and sturdy. Not sure about the slips but heard from others kind of tight. Marine technician, Eric, on staff. Indiantown is nothing special but is not too far by bike with all of the neccessary things there: convenience marts, IGA, pharmacy, dollar store. Did not see an auto parts but there may be one. No chandlery but the marina office/store seems well stocked with surface refinishing products and a very large assortment of stainless steel marine fasteners, nuts, bolts, etc. Some with larger boats may think the basin's a bit tight. We're at 45 foot and found it was no problem.



Positive experince, 2013-04-05
Captain: , St. Paul, MN (10)

Very nice Marina at a reasonable price. Got rained/stormed in here today and they were very accommodating. I recommend this as a stopover when traveling east or west.



A great place to stop, 2013-03-27
Captain: , WARWICK, RI (62)

This was a great place to stop. Very friendly staff and just a great setup. Outside sitting area with tables and even firepits. About a mile to a grocery store. Nice and peaceful. We all enjoyed it !!!



Nice little marina, 2013-02-07
Captain: , Palmetto (412)

We are very happy with this marina, the staff was very friendly, and there is a great deck (complete with grill and fire pits) and boater's lounge (kitchen) area. The marina is tucked in (on the north side of the channel) so we had a quiet and wake-free night.



Watch for ANTS, 2013-01-14
Captain: , Buffalo (1144)

When we prepared to leave, we discovered that we had been invaded by little black ants. Fortunately, they had not progressed beyond the aft deck, so we were able to exterminate them.



I feel like I'm in Canada!, 2012-12-26
Captain: , Athens, AL (641)

According to Debbie, about 80% of their business is Canadian. They are wonderful folks, friendly and like to have fun. We were invited to attend the Christmas Eve dinner which was great. I called the local NAPA store before arrival and they delivered some materials I needed for no extra charge. I also spent some time checking out a minor leak from my port transmission. I spoke with Eric about it, he came down to the boat and gave me a quick tutorial on completing the repair, he had the 2 parts I needed, amd then came down later to check my work (the price could not be beat). Bottom line is this is a great stop with friendly folks, good price, good service, good wifi, and plenty of "how can I help you" to go around. Not much at all in town, we rode bikes in to check it out and were back at the marina in an hour.



What a Great Marina, 2012-12-15
Captain: , Miami Beach (630)

We came in here on 12/13/12 planning on leaving the next day. We got such a late start on 12/14, even though they were practically full, they let us stay until the 12/15 without having to move locations. Just really nice people. BBQ's on Saturday I hear! Lovely dock mates. Great patio area and kitchen. i would go back in a heart beat.



small Marina and very friendly people, 2012-12-08
Captain: , Halifax Marina Daytona Beach (300)

small but very friendly and helpfull people, a good stop before crossing Lake Okeechobee, downtown a bike ride away but don't expect too much



You get what you pay for, 2012-12-07
Captain: , Algonac, MI (1659)

Dock was tight with a sharp edge. Single head for men unless you hike up to the work yard.



Nice safe place to stop., 2012-08-24
Captain: , Clearwater FL (685)

We only stopped one night. Arrived at 5pm, they go home at 4:30, but no problem docking (very calm).Could get WiFi but not under Indiantown Marina, try marina kitchen server. Will stop here on the way back.




GREAT mechanic service!, 2012-08-10
Captain: , St. Petersburg FL (187)

We left our 34 trawler here while waiting for the Moore Haven lock to open, and had some maintenance & repairs done. Eric & Graham were the best marine mechanics we've encountered over the past 26 years of boat ownership. They kept us informed of what was going on, made suggestions but never tried to "up sell" what we needed done; in fact, suggesting ways to save money to accomplish what we needed done. It was one of those RARE times that a boat yard not only came in on their dollar quote, but actually was a bit less than estimated.

Debbie, the office manager, was most gracious.



Great stopover, 2012-05-09
Captain: , Fort Myers (749)

Great little marina with very attentive support. A little tight for boats over 50' though. Would have given 5 stars but there was no cable or internet (unless you had an air card).



THREE WEEKS STAY IS TOO LONG, 2012-03-21
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (343)

I preface this review by letting the reader know we have been in Indiantown for 3 weeks getting engine repairs. The marina is nice; showers and heads are adequate. There is a nice lounge area with a kitchen and TV. There are several BBQ grills available for use. Nice shaded patio area for relaxing.
The maintenance staff was very professional. VERY professional. The maintenance supervisor Eric is involved with what is going on and the mechanics were knowledgeable. Eric made his personal auto available but we had bikes to go into town, about 3 miles away.
Now for the irritants. They work from 0800 to 1630 with a lunch break. There is no work done on the weekend. The work I had done (replacing head gaskets on both engines) required the cylinder heads go off to Sturart (??). (But I will say that I had a head gasket replaced in Alabama on the Tenn-Tom and it failed with only 125 hrs on the engine). You have a 50/50 chance that the staff will help with lines on arrival. There is very little in Indiantown itself; grocery, hardware, couple of restaurants. Town is about 3 miles from the marina.
Bottom line, this is a good marina and I am frustrated right now being 3 weeks behibd schedule




Very good spot, 2012-03-19
Captain: , Quebec (30)

We have all we need to take a break... Eric the manager for the service took care of us and our sailboat. All guys here work like pro.
Good place to stop.



Good transient stop, 2012-03-10
Captain: , St Petersburg (345)

We draw 6'2" and had no problem with depth. Ann in office very nice. Manager was quite rude and mean when we had a couple of vendors chasing us here to get stuff finished off/fixed that should have been done before we left the yard. The manager wanted a 15% cut.



Quiet and Friendly, 2012-02-21
Captain: , Pensacola (42)

Our first stop out of Stuart. No problem handing a multihull with a great slip. Needed engine maintenance for older Perkins, they were spot on and very helpful, patient and reasonable. Serene location just off the ICW with comfortable layout, wifi was helpful. A 77' trawler came in and was slipped easily at the fuel docks for an overnighter, our 41' tri was no problem.

Fees were very reasonable and we were satisfied with all the facilities. Transportation was available for shopping and eating. We look forward to stopping there again when headed back to the East on the ICW.



good place to stop overnight, 2012-01-31
Captain: , Charlestown (946)

We stopped here on our way across heading westbound. Nice people, they have some parts and things if you need to do repairs, nice screened in room with TV, WIFI throughout and a kitchen area. They have fixed and floating docks. Bathrooms are fair, water is nice and hot. Laundry is outside, 2 washers, 2 dryers. Restaurant nearby Dee-Stefano's has great food and they will pick you up and bring you back. It is about 1 mile away. There is also a Grocery next door. Eat out and get your goceries and then hasve them take you back to the boat, not a bad deal. I rated this a three because this isn't necessarily a place you want to stay for entertainment, but a great layover.



No weekend dockhands, 2011-11-27
Captain: , Branford, CT (910)

We stayed here last night. Our assigned spot was at the end of the fairway to the right. Because of their short fingers, we backed in. Not much challenge with no wind or current. Although most folks sat on their boats and watched, one guy came out to help with lines. The first 50 amp outlet did not work.

I'm told the dockhands don't work on the weekends. The woman (Ann) in the office was very pleasant. Bathrooms looked clean, but we did not use them.

When you make your reservation, ask to be put on their floating dock. It's just inside their entrance channel. Easy in / out.

At $1.00 per foot, it's a great stop.



Inexpensive Fuel Stop, 2011-11-20
Captain: , Little River, SC (1967)

We stayed overnight here and found the people to be friendly and helpful. Lot's of liveaboards in this marina. Slips are tight as is the entry way but plenty of water (8-9ft). Diesel fule was $3.10/gal.
I wound up grilling our dinner outside after dark and the mosquitoes almost carried me away.



Good overnight, 2011-10-27
Captain: , Houston, TX (114)

Small marina, very big yard, and extremely helpful friendly staff. Great lounge are outdoors with tables, chairs, tiki torches and friendly screened in lounge with sat TV and kitchen area/wifi. Did not get to explore any nearby facilities.



Make this a place to stop, 2011-08-16
Captain: , Palmetto Fl (545)

Indiantown is always a stop on our crossing of the state. Helpful friendly staff. Great boaters lounge and outside patio area. It was very quiet when we stopped in Aug., but make reservations during the busy season-Apr. and Nov. Bathrooms/showers are ample, but nothing to get excited about. The price is right at $1.00/ft.



Indiantown Marina, 2011-06-04
Captain: , Wickford, RI (1637)

Nice marina with limited room to make approach to docks or to turn around. We were here at navigation depth of 4.5 feet in the lake and there was a little more than that in the marina, so if you think you can navigate the lake, then going into the marina is not a problem.
Othe comments about the maximum boat lenght are accurate.



Nice but shallow tight entry when water low, 2011-05-05
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

Called ahead for dockage and was assigned a front bulkhead space that was occupied when I arrive 3 hours later. Found a wall spot after very tight fairway and touched when turning. The assigned space was on the face bulkhead but three boats were and spread out so as to occupy the entire face dock. Evidently the ail boat in the middle was on the "ground" so couldn't be shifted to accommodate me. One of the boats was occupied, and there were several locals on the adjacent patio. None offer any information or assistance. When asked for information e.g. about the facility, The grounds keeper staff? "Moose" replied in a surly curt and annoyed fashion as if I was imposing. In short, I was very uncomfortable and made to feel like an unwanted outsider. In all my cruising this is the first time I have never experienced such unfriendly boater/staff. The office staff had gone for theday but were very nice when I checked out. This is their haul out season as most boaters there are returning north after the winter. The marina staff were very nice, it was just the obnoxious surly unhelpful "Moose" present that made this an uncomfortable experience.



Do It Yourself Marina, 2011-05-05
Captain: , Punta Gorda, FL (639)

This is a true do-it-yourself marina/boatyard. We came in to dock in 20 knots of wind and none of the 10 people in sight offered to help us tie up. This unfriendliness caused us to depart without docking. We took our business elsewhere.



Very Happy with Indiantown Marina, 2011-04-20
Captain: , Washington DC (152)

We anchored out for two nights in the canal just outside the marina. On the first night they served everyone a completely free Thanksgiving Dinner including beer, wine, and music. Everything at no charge. We offered to pay a dinghy fee to use the showers and laundry facilities but they did not charge us. Within walking distance of a small town with grocery store, post office, hardware store, library, and a few small restaurants. I would definitely stop there again.



Friendly, but not set up for bigger boats, 2011-03-25
Captain: , Cruising (3259)

This is a very small place with tight turns and limited access... not well-suited to larger (50'+) boats. They are friendly and helpful but it's a scruffy kind of place and I would not make it my first choice.



Wonderful little marina, 2011-03-18
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (1134)

Nice poeple, good power and pleanty of water for our 5 foot draft.



Love This Place, 2011-01-26
Captain: , Palm Coast, FL (385)

Real old Florida charm on a lot of levels. The folks that run the place are priceless and some of the locals that hang out there are a lot of fun. After 10 minutes sitting and talking you feel like family.





We would stop again, 2011-01-25
Captain: , brewerton ny (303)

Very friendly cruiser oriented facility. Free BBQ on Saturday evening.Met nice people



Great Facility, 2010-12-05
Captain: , Rockport, ON, 1000 Islands (30)

We have stored our trawler here for 4 summer seasons. Good service, excellent mechanic/yard/marina staff. The marina continues to improve facilities. They go out of their way to host events for the boaters.



Great layover spot., 2010-11-12
Captain: , Fosters Point, Random Island, Newfoundland (82)

Have stayed here 4 time and found everything to be great. Friendly staff. Great place to wait out the weather before crossing the lake.



Friendly place, 2010-04-24
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (334)

Call the Italian restrurant for a pick-up and a good meal.



Neat place to stop, 2010-03-19
Captain: , Newville (488)

Stopped to wait for good winds to cross lake. Great pricing, really nice people. Would cheerfully stop again

We spent one night here. Arived Sat and invited to BBQ. Great staff and lovely place to stay. DIY boat yard or have staff work on boat. Highly recommend it for a few days stop.



Colorful, 2009-06-05
Captain: , Memphis TN (977)

We enjoyed our one night stay in March'09. Protected, water, electricty and facilities. Active boaters lounge. Saturday night barbeque.



Great stop and storage, 2009-05-06
Captain: , Vancouver BC (500)

Friendly and professional people, have our 43 Hatt on the hard for summer, all handled with care and concern.



Nice, 2009-02-22
Captain: , Jacksonville Florida (125)

I was there for a few days 2/15/09 and it's a real friendly atmosphere and nice well protected docks. On Saturday nights they have a barbeque for the cruisers. They have a very large storage area and all types of maintenance services either do it your self or professional.



Great Place, 2009-01-29
Captain: , Stuart, FL (426)

Friendly people, good prices ($1.25 per foot in Jan 2009). Nice docks, elrctric and water. New fuek tanks available first week in Feb. Free WIFI.
