Reviews for Paradise Marina
friendly place, 2015-03-18
Captain: , Cape Coral, fl (190)

We're here for 6 weeks until we move to our home, but until then this is a nice little jewel of a marina with great rates. The people staying here are the most friendly we've ever met, a community of its own.

The channel coming in is narrow and so is the basin. I agree with a previous comment, 5' is more accurate.



Draft upto 5' is best., 2014-09-10
Captain: , Cape Coral Florida (10)

Although the marina's claim of 7 ft mllw my soundings were 5 ft 4 inches and just under 6 ft over much of this channel that was created off Chantry canal's marker buoys. These soundings were taken 9/5/2014 quite sometime after the dredging.



Clean and simple, 2013-11-03
Captain: , Ft. Myers Fl (230)

Stayed here for a few months, kids and dogs loved it. Dead end road leads here, little traffic and no noise. Super bowl and holiday parties in the tiki hut. Good prices and community atmosphere.



Looks Good, 2013-09-07
Captain: , Oviedo (306)

Did a drive by there today (looking for a place to leave our boat for a month or so)
Very well kept. Good security, and the rates are good.



Does not do transiets, 2013-08-01
Captain: , Montgomery Alabama (1102)

This marina changed management about a year ago . They cater to liveaboards . They will take in an overnighter , but would rather not . They do not sell ice .



Nice, quiet place, 2013-05-15
Captain: , Phoenix, AZ (960)

The channel was dredged in May 2013. We draw approx. 6 ft and rubbed the bottom of sandy, mud a couple of times. But, this is a nice, clean and quiet marina. They have wifi, laundry, liveaboards are welcome, pet friendly, weekly pump outs all at a great price. The web site is paradisemarina.net



Peace and (VERY) Quite-, 2012-11-04
Captain: , Green Cove springs, FL (40)

Motor Vessel drafting four and one-half feet
- Channel Depth on approach and at the pier at low tide was five to six-
Staff is trying harder-and improving- 1.8 miles to the Publix--so bring your bike-
Good Points-Very Good rates,pwer is included- friendly patrons- Hear wind in the Palms, (not sirens)-
Bad-a tad far to the stores-but slipmates have offered rides to date-




love it here, 2012-02-07
Captain: , Mobile Al (140)

This place is the best kept secret in Ft Myers. We came in for a planned stay of 3 days and stayedfor 6 weeks. It's just too good to leave.



QUIET AND PEACEFUL, 2010-09-06
Captain: , Cincinnati (1810)

Nice little marina. Very quiet with nice people and maintained grounds in marina area. No food but plenty nearby. No fuel but fuel available across river. Ken is a great host.



Great place, 2009-12-24
Captain: , N Fort Myers, Florida (516)

This is the friendliest little marina you will ever experience. Every day someone blows a horn at 5 pm and most boaters meet for a short happy hour.

Captain: , Saint James City, FL (252)

Friendly, quiet and safe marina
