Reviews for Pier 98 Marina
Great great people., 2015-10-29
Captain: , Florida Keys (182)

Very nice people with very good services at a fair price. Will visit them again.

Update: We called ahead and asked if we could ship a part there and pick it up on our way through. They allowed us to do this. We bought diesel when we picked up the part. Nice people with easy access to the fuel dock. Very deep water dock. There is also a convenience store there as well that sells hot food and some groceries. Nice people. We will stop here again.

Not cheap anymore, 2014-02-17
Captain: , Pensacola, Fl (39)

Called ahead to check on slip availability, told $2 ft. Thought that was a bit pricey for Feb. Especially since City Marina is $1.12.

Great Fuel Price, 2012-04-30
Captain: , Fort Myers, FL (101)

Good Easy place to fuel up. $3.79 Diesel 4/28/2012. overnight cheap; however, on rough side of dockage.

Pier 98 Marina, 2012-04-17
Captain: , Iuka, MS (75)

It is a nice enough place to stay for the evening. The people are really nice and helpful. There were three people to meet me at the dock to get settled. They kept us at the gas dock and there was no electricity. Not a problem for us since we have good power on board. If you need electricity, you should call ahead and make sure they have a slip with power.

They charged $25 for the night but told me the price was supposed to be $1 per foot.

diesel price, 2012-04-11
Captain: , Sale Creek, Soddy Daisy, tn. (70)

Very good service on the dock to fuel up with diesel 3.799 including tax further west it is 4.17

Best bait stop!, 2011-11-28
Captain: , Tyndall AFB, FL (10)

Friendly staff, owner is experienced boat captain. Good selection of fishing tackle and live and frozen bait!

Repeat customers, 2011-03-20
Captain: , Foley, AL (985)

Once again a very pleasant visit here. They added some larger spud poles to the slips right of fuel dock. We'll come back again.

You don't want to miss Joey's Oyster Bay, 2011-01-06
Captain: , Channel Islands, California (1149)

Great place to stop. We came in during a rain storm and they were most helpful having met us on the dock. Although their computers were down so we had to wait a little while for fuel, they made us feel at home. They have two rules in this marina: relax and relax. We came in knowing we would be staying the night so following the rules was easy. We had a wonderful evening in Joey's Oyster Bar. It's right there on the premises. Joey and his cousin, both of whom have been in the oyster business for a very long time went the extra mile. This is what we were looking for. I'd come back here in an instant. There is also a well stocked convenience store on the premises as well as a fish and steak restaurant.

Good price on fuel, 2010-04-09
Captain: , clear lake texas (435)

Easy in and out with plenty of depth. Best fuel price today.

Great Marina, 2009-12-10
Captain: , Panama City Fl (10)

Lowest prices and nicest people in Panama City!

Friendly service, good prices and great deli, 2009-11-15
Captain: , Clearwater, FL (150)

Three of us loopers stopped for diesel as price was .10/gal less than others and they move a lot of fuel. Bonus was that owners work the marina and convenience store and take pride in what they are doing. Transplants from Chicago. Deli food was great. Took some with us for the day. And my wife needed to pick up a prescription at the Walgreens 10 minutes away, so John the owner drove her there and back while we waited at the fuel dock. Great people and staff.

Great place to fill up and stay, 2009-07-15
Captain: , Cocoa, FL (11)

Located in a protected bayou (Pitts Bayou) Pier 98 Marina has very good gas and diesel prices, plenty of ice, a reliable pump out service, fresh bait, new pristine heads and showers, a convenience store loaded with boat stuff, a cafeteria with breakfast and lunch specials as good as I’ve seen anywhere, a Rodeo Steak House next door. To this add the friendliest staff imaginable and family ownership on site; the owner caught my docklines as we tied up. Demand for dockage here is high and I would advise a call for availability. 5 stars

Small Sailboat Cruising, 2009-05-19
Captain: , Carrabelle (364)

There does not apperar to be any transient slips but a small boat may be allowed to tie up to the dock for a night. There is a convenience store that is very well stocked and the staff was friendly and helpful. There is a "Rodeo" restaurant next to the store. It was a nice place to stop for an hour or so and get gas and supplies. They were open at 7AM on a Sunday.

Cheap gas/good people., 2009-01-28
Captain: , Hite, Utah (15668)

This is a small marina with good people that sells fresh fuel at low prices by selling to both motor vehicles and boats.
