Reviews for Parrot Cove Marina
Reviewer from Colorado has never been to this marina, 2016-10-31
Captain: , Cortez, Fl. (47)

It's funny how someone in Colorado can give a bad review to a marina in Fl. that they have never been to. This 36 boat slips marina in Fl. stays full year round which should speak volumes about the current conditions.

The infrequent reviews, speaks eloquently of the current conditions.

Stopped to visit with friends on our way to the keys. Only saw the manager once the first day there. We stayed two or three nights waiting for the weather to clear up a bit. On our way back there now for another visit after summer in the keys.

Nice little marina, 2012-11-16
Captain: , Stuart Florida (280)

Found this place on Active Captain. Dockmaster Bob could not have been more helpful. Approach is straight forward and we had no trouble with a five foot draft. Rates are more than reasonable and good food and beaches are just a short bike ride away. Will definately return

I loved this marina..., 2012-07-12
Captain: , N Ft Myers, Fl (43)

Stayed here for 4 nights to visit friends in Bradenton. Bob the dockmaster was very helpful in getting me in and tied up in my slip, also with reccomendations for great food. Try the Cortez Kitchen (if you can get in) and Fire and Stone Pizza. It is an old Florida style Marina, laid back and comfortable but with good power, water, and pump out at each slip. Free WiFi. Compared with other marinas in the area the rates at Parrot Cove are quite reasonable, well, more than reasonable. I will use Parrot Cove as my Marina when I visit my friends in bradenton. Looking forward to my next visit.

This marina is slightley off the intercoastal well protected with all new docks and fenced with locked gates.Electricity, water, restrooms, surrounded by quiet residental area.Friendly helpful staff.Dockmaster,Bob, will answer all your questions.
This marina's dock fees are very reasonable considering the area. Transits should menchon Active Captain to recieve special rates
