Reviews for Port LaBelle Marina
perfect quite marina in good condition, 2017-03-19
Captain: , Annapolis (10)

don't expect gold star service or facilities, but lovely rural location between locks and off the waterway, yet only 45 minutes from Ft Myers Airport. great friendly helpful staff. docks fairly new and large.

This place is a good find, 2017-03-14
Captain: , Eagle (292)

We would have stayed here rather than LaBelle City. We pulled in for fuel. Large, quiet, open marina. Transients accepted. No ammenities, but friendly staff. Great for leash.

Call for fuel hours, 2017-02-23
Captain: , Vinegar Post,VA (172)

We stopped looking for fuel at 1:30 and the fuel dock had closed at 12:00. We were very disappointed

grate idea not well thought out, 2016-12-12
Captain: , Gulfport Fl usa (342)

this place was part of a large planned community that didn't happen! docks have no water or power with exception of a few facilities are old and rundown. there is a hotel onsite stores and other services are miles away

quiet overnight stop, 2016-11-01
Captain: , Indiantown, FL (91)

Stayed overnight 1/31/16. Found our own dock and tied up. No water or electric. Out of the river current of 2 knots. Prices now $1 a foot plus tax. Dark and hopefully peaceful. No restaurant at the Hotel and conference centre now.

Terrible customer service, 2015-07-02
Captain: , Titusville, FL (70)

We were running low on fuel and wanted to fuel up before continuing on to Fort Myers. Called on the phone at 12:45 PM and said we were 2 miles out, could we get fuel? Girl said that, unless I could guarantee her that we could finish fueiling by 1:00 PM, she could not service us. We passed the marina at about 5 till 1 and will never frequent their docks in the future.

worst marina, 2015-06-07
Captain: , Crystal River, FL. (10)

This gives new meaning to the word %u201Cmarina%u201D. You have to call by phone the dock master named Pete because there is no one at the marina. They advertise 30 amp electric however there is only two outlets on one dock and a third next to the ice machine on shore a long distance away. The two electric outlets on the dock are taken up by boats that are there all the time. The water outlets are limited. I will say that the docks are nice. The docks are the only thing that I found to be nice. The lower door of the men%u2019s bathroom was rotted away and the screen to the area leading to the men%u2019s bath is ripped loose and the bathroom fills with insects. The restaurant has closed so we had to order pizza and have it delivered. Pump out is advertised on the sign at the dock $5.00 and Pete charged $10.00. Unless there is no other options available I would never stop here again.

Great Stop, 2015-03-01
Captain: , Belleville, Ontario (410)

Floating docks - two power plugs near the fuel dock - we stayed on the T dock. There were manatees in the harbor, alligators, all kinds of birds - good place for walking, folks were friendly. Very good place to leave a boat for an extended period as most do there - .50/ft transient and 3.00 per month doesn%u2019t get any cheaper, great place to take a break.

Watch for changes, 2015-01-20
Captain: , Jacksonville Fl (1550)

One of the owners has passed away and the bank is having the property assessed and analized. It will most likley be sold and that could mean better days are ahead.

Old Florida at its best!, 2014-09-06
Captain: , Twin Dolphin Marina (271)

Like many, I was surprised to find power was limited, and of course, their hours of operation are also limited, but for our purposes this place was perfect. We pulled in around 5, spent the night on the generator, and paid up in the morning when they came in. Fuel prices weren't bad, and at $20 for the night for our 38' powerboat, I could really have asked for more. If you come in thinking of Port La Belle Marina as a quite place to rest up for the night, and an opportunity to see Old Florida at its best, you'll be happy with your stay.

At a quarter the price of a full service marina, I think they offer a solid value, and the staff are exceptionally friendly.

Nice folks poor facilities, 2014-06-15
Captain: , Cape Coral FL (70)

I should have read the reviews before going to Port LaBelle so i would not have been surprised. Very limited electric on the docks, only a couple single 30 Amp plugs but most are already in use, and no 50 Amp at all. Pete was very nice and willing to work with me to get me enough power, but I ended up adapting off of a 30 amp and a 110 circuit up the dock a ways. Without 150' of 30 amp and 50 amp cables, and lots of adaptors we would not have had power. The hotel next door is closing soon so don't expect to stay anywhere but on your boat. As long as you are willing to run on your genset its a cheap place to spend the night.

Rustic but cheap, 2014-03-09
Captain: , MONARCH. COLORADO (1156)

This poor little marina just can't seem to get up and going and has sufferred from the economic blight that affects this county. We stayed a week while doing some maintenance two weeks ago. The docks are solid and a little threadbare yes, but they are quiet and allow that remote getaway feeling. They still cost 50 cents a foot nightly or $4 a foot monthly. Nobody is going to disturb you here. The laundry is only a buck and the people are really nice. There is Electric and water only on 6 docks that float in front of the fuel dock and it comes at a flat $5 a day but don't count on getting one. You will get some wake action from the big nuckleheads that fly by in the ditch. There is good food and happy hour at the nearby hotel. Most people dinghy back to Labelle for provisions. If you have a generator and don't need water, this is a really cheap place to sit out bad weather. Currently they are open from 9am to noon only and operate on an honor system for slip rental. Leave a check in the box by the door of the office and remember to include 7% tax.

Waste of a fuel dock, 2013-05-21
Captain: , Ft. Pierce, Fl (265)

The fuel dock is only open from 9am till 1pm on Saturday and CLOSED on Sunday. You have been warned. Everyone else told you about the electrical issues.

closed on Sunday, 2013-05-06
Captain: , Punta Gorda, Fl (960)

We fueled here and prices were ok. Tried again and no response--must be closed on Sunday.

Captain: , Annapolis, MD (343)

I think it is hard to give this marina anything higher than 2 stars, and I give it 2 only because the dockmaster is friendly and the fishing is good. Other than that, it has good piers, but they were built to oid having to refile for a permit, so facilities are greatly limited. Only 2 have a single 30 amp outlet and if you can string about 100 feet of cords, you can reach a third near the fuel pier. Most of the docks do not have water available. They do sell gas, but get here before 1 PM becaude that's when they close. The Port LaBelle in does have food service, but call before you go becaude the open / close /change ownership ona regular basis. Closest shopping for necessities is 5 miles away in town.

Only in an emergency, 2011-05-18
Captain: , Hudson (274)

We found the La Belle City dock full so we continued to Port La Belle Marina. When we arrived the love bugs were everywhere but we figured once we connected shore power we could enjoy the AC. Problem was there was no electric available. Could not locate a dock master and no one answered the telephone. We moved on.

Living cheap, 2011-01-28
Captain: , Hite, Utah (15668)

Port LaBelle Marina is relatively inexpensive and about as hurricane safe as you can get in southern Florida. There are several people living aboard here.

A work in progress., 2010-11-12
Captain: , Fosters Point, Random Island, Newfoundland (82)

Things keep improving every time we go there. Easy fuel access.
Have not done over night.

Port LaBelle Marina, 2010-02-02
Captain: , Grand Haven, Mi (2283)

As of January 2010 there are only two slips with electricity and water. The docks are nearly new and in very good shape. There are a few floating slips near the gas dock in the west basin. There is a washer and dryer and head and shower facilities.
