Reviews for Pancho's Fuel Dock and Marina
Great staff, 2017-06-23
Captain: , Reno, NV (30)

We stayed on the dock overnight here when there was no room anywhere else, and the staff (especially Dale) were fantastic. We filled the tanks and bought some t-shirts from the shop.

Helpful staff, 2017-04-26
Captain: , Kemah Texas (389)

Right on the entrance to Boot Key. Good place to fuel up before grabbing a mooring ball. Mainly geared for commercial fishermen, but happy to sell fuel to passing sailboats.

NO FREE WATER- water 40 cent gallon, 2015-04-20
Captain: , Decatur AL (45)

Ice is bulk & soft, fuel is cheaper than neighboring fuel dock, water is 40 cents gallon. If you are at city mooring field it's cheaper to get water at 5 cents gallon.

Nice place with nice people, 2015-03-10
Captain: , key west (10)

A very no frills kind of place, but Dale and Tatiana (as well as the rest of the staff) are really nice and helpful. Burdine's next door has a great beer selection, as does Castaway, which also has excellent sushi. The bugs did eat us alive one night, but for the rest of the week it was fine.

Good Fuel Dock But..., 2015-01-24
Captain: , Wickford, RI (560)

That and the friendly staff are about the extent of it. No facilities, very little at the store. Can walk to West Marine; Burdines next door is a decent water-side bar. Can also walk to Castaways, we were dissapointed in their food but they do have music most nights in the bar. A little longer walk along Rt.1 gets you to Porky's and 7 Mile Bridge for breakfast/Lunch/dinner. Free ice, 15 ibs., with a fuel-up is a nice feature.

Welcome to Marathon, 2014-05-19
Captain: , Orange Beach Alabama (90)

The store leaves a lot to be desired. The facilities are non-existent. But the people are great. And gotta go to it

It is a great welcome to the flavor and pace of the Keys.

Sorry --big disapointment, 2014-05-03
Captain: , East Greenwich RI (515)

May 1 2014 They were nice on the phone. No help with docking. Tried to get us into a 20 ' slip with a 42' boat--just spring it well :-( we left and went elsewhere to Marathon Marina

great bunch of fokes, 2014-02-26
Captain: , morehead, city (40)

absolutely one of my best stops, very helpful, honest and trustworthy

Fuel and....fuel, 2013-08-13
Captain: , Chatham, Mass (71)

Your basic fuel dock. Store is underwhelming. Best bet us to go get a piece of deep fried key lime pie from Burdetts while fueling up. Other othan that, not much to write home about.

Ditched for weather, 2013-03-13
Captain: , Charleston, SC (344)

For three days. Really glad we did. Had a great time.

Staff was great. Let me repair my dinghy with their lift crane and even let me borrow a car to get to Home Depot.

Showers/restrooms were good, free coffee in the morning, restaurants were good, West Marine in walking distance.

We will be back.

Nice fuel stop, 2013-02-18
Captain: , Plantation Yacht Harbor, Islamorada, Fla. Keys (4686)

what the other reviews say; on the channel into Boot Key Harbor

Vaughan Taylor, 2013-02-08
Captain: , Beaufort, NC (451)

This fuel dock has great pilings that have heavy proactive strips on them. The best thing is the service, which in our case was provided by Leah, who took great care of us, our boat,
and our dogs. The 50 pounds of free ice that come with taking on 15 or more gallons of fuel was unbelievable. This should be your first stop and your departure stop in Marathon!

We need Ice, 2012-08-09
Captain: , cocoa (130)

We had started our run home.(Cocoa). the decision to bounce through the Bahamas on the way home was made---we need alot of Ice... I build an ice box that holds 1600 ibs of Ice... Pancho's filled that box for us----$15.00 for 500 lbs... Great service---Thanks Pancho's

Great fuel dock, 2011-08-16
Captain: , St. Petersburg, FL (114)

Very friendly and helpful staff, 2 big baskets of ice delivered to dock at no charge with my fill up. Easy approach and channel right off 7 miles bridge
