Reviews for Riviera Beach City Marina
Top Notch Facility with Helpful Staff., 2017-07-30
Captain: , Galveston Texas (315)

Appears that whatever construction that was mentioned in previous reviews has been complete and what we were greeted with was state-of-the-art floating piers and competent line handlers. Call ahead for a line handler because the marina is located right at the axis of the Indian River and the Palm Beach Inlet and the floating piers offer NO protection from the very significant currents. The state of the currents was the only reason this marina didn't get 5 stars from me. There is a resturant co-located on the marina property but we didn't eat and can't rate. We can rate the county park, a stones throw across the channel from the marina, Peanut Island. The park features a dedicated snorkling lagoon that was a delight! A shuttle service to the island operates from the marina from 9 - 5 and $12 gets you a round trip ticket. We stayed and extra day to experience the lagoon and very glad we did. Fuel, gas & diesel, was available and we did top off, however, even with our BoatUS discount it was the priciest we've bought since leaving Galveston Bay, Texas and a full $0.45 more than we paid in Key West. Might want to do a search and make a second stop if you need a substantial fill-up.

Just stopped for diesel, 2017-06-04
Captain: , Charleston (40)

Approached at high tide from Cracker Boy, was delayed for about 10 minutes for docking help. The hand was marginally helpful. We made a harder landing than had we made the approach without assistance. The marina needs more help, especially on a busy (Memeorial Day) weekend. We met friends who anchored out and used the dingy dock. The marina structure is new and curently in good condition. The laundry is in clean. There is not much in the immediate neighborhood, but Boat Owners Warehouse is within walking distance.

Wonderful place!, 2017-05-31
Captain: , Phoenix, AZ (484)

We spent about half the winter here, and the staff was not only friendly and helpful, they went out of their way to ensure our stay was trouble-free. Docks are new and excellent (love the plastic dock edging - an infinite improvement over the usual vinyl that marks like crazy). Pumpout at every slip is nice, too.
Negatives include current - be VERY careful at high current times unless you have powerful directional control - we watched a number of sailboats get in trouble trying to enter with high current. Also - for those drawing 6' or more, there is a shoal just off the center entrance that stops a lot of sailboats at low tide. If you go to the North side outside, it's plenty deep - but not for very far! They are always willing to find you a spot to wait for low current/high tide if needed, however :).

Very friendly, helpful staff, 2017-05-01
Captain: , Sailing (660)

The Marina is under a major, noise and dust during the day. Very, concrete floating docks. Temporary offices, bathrooms, showers, and laundry...but, kept very clean. Wifi is only near the office...but they set me up a table and chairs! Easy paddle to Peanut Island, with nice snorkeling. Publix supermarket just over a mile north. Also BOW for boat supplies.
Update Aug. 17,2016...brand new onSpot wifi today....excellent improvement.
April 20, 2017...stopped for fuel and to hi. Still very friendly and helpful. Tim and Tim on the docks are helpful and thoughtful. Lee doing a great job managing the place. New restaurant open. Looks nice but didn't eat there. Great to see lots of activity at the marina.

Nice stop over before crossing to Bahamas, 2017-03-11
Captain: , Grass Valley, CA (320)

Spent the night here. The docks and dockside assistance was really good. They have not completed the onshore buildings and facilities. The wifi was sketchy but better close to office. Wifi extenders and OnSpot can be problematic, I have Coastal Explorer, finlly got it working late in the evening. To be fair the office said that the wifi was having issues. The depth was ok in marina, bur there was a strong north current when we pulled in. Watch the tide and current tables. They will have to back into the slip. We are 52' so it was fun but safe.

Recent Renovations - Great Place to Stage., 2017-03-02
Captain: , Hilton Head, SC (1234)

As the more current reviewers have noted, the docks, facilities and grounds are brand new - no problems with power, GREAT wifi, easy on/off fuel dock. The ladies in the office are very friendly and helpful. 1st Saturday of every month, they have started a new tradition of a boater appreciation brunch, including mimosas! The onsite restaurant is scheduled to open soon. But the offices and showers ("cabanas") will remain in the trailers - not a problem for me, as they were cleaned daily and kept up - but it's not in keeping w/the rest of the facilities. Use Uber or get a rental car and explore the area. Publix is just up the street on Blue Heron. Boat Owners' Warehouse walking distance. Ward's Marine Electric (M-F only) if you need any serious electrical supplies (don't ask). We only intended to stay a few nights but it stretched out over two weeks due to multiple projects as well as weather. If you enjoy fishing, sign up with Right Hook Fishing charters and Captain Mike - you will bring home some fresh snapper for dinner - highly recommend those guys.

Also once they assign you a slip, they are happy to send you a photo showing the marina map and the route in, to your smartphone - very nice. Mind the current - it can be strong.

Management response:
Thank you so much for your kind words regarding our team members at Riviera Beach City Marina; we truly value hearing that our staff provided outstanding customer service. It mean a lot to us at the City Marina to be noticed for good customer service as it is one of the hallmarks of our marina.

Please know that I will pass along this sincerest thank you to our team members and acknowledge their hard work and commitment to the marina, and to the boating community. We look forward to seeing you again. Happy boating!

Old (sketchy) Neighborhood Gone, 2017-02-13
Captain: , Westbrook ct (199)

Huge parking lot and conference center have replaced the old neighborhood. It will be handy when a restaurant or two open in the center.
Good and helpful staff. Deep water on approach and up to wall. Will stay again if in the area.

a great marina, 2017-02-10
Captain: , Blue Mesa Co (100)

this place has been upgraded at some point in the recent pass and I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 week stay while waiting to cross the Gulf Stream.
I found the management and dock hands to be very helpful. As a single handed sailor, help at the dock is very important to me and Tim couldn't have been more helpful. They also gave me a ride in their golf cart when I wanted to refill some 5 gal jerry cans at their fule dock.
My 50 ft electric cord (from the stern) didn't quite reach the pedestal location and they loaned me an extension.
Older reviews complained about the wifi, it must have been part of their upgrade because I found the wifi here to be one of the best in all the marinas I've stayed. They have 12 or 13 access points scattered all over the docks and plenty of bandwidth. I had no problem streaming Youtube videos.
The rest rooms, showers & laundry are above avg. Its Palm Beach so its not cheap, but the only thing I thought was out of line was the $15 a day electric charge. I assume thats due to folks running an air conditioner all day & night.
I'll definitely be staying here again next season.

Yoyo's for dock hands, 2017-01-17
Captain: , Marco Island (242)

I had a couple of Yoyo's for dock hands, but that can happen. No harm no foul. Nice floating docks, good wifi, nice staff.

Management response:
Dear Charlie Zanger,
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent experience at our marina and we apologize for an inconvenience you may have experienced. We strive to deliver consistent, upscale facilities with well trained and caring staff. There will always be areas to improve and we are constantly working towards giving you a better marina experience. Rest assured that we take your comments seriously and will investigate how we might address them. Thank you again for your feedback and look forward to serving you again in the future.

Udillion covered it, 2017-01-06
Captain: , St. Louis, MO (1850)

The previous review by Udillion covered it well.
I want to add a tourisy note. Plan on visiting the Flagler Museum and Mansion in Palm Beach. Take Uber from the marina. It was a terrific way to spend the day. It's beautiful.

Will be 5 star when complete, 2016-12-27
Captain: , Kingston (269)

We just spent 6 nights at the municipal marina in Riveria Beach.

We almost gave it a pass based on reviews, but had a chance to have a look when we were on the hard at Cracker Boy. We very much enjoyed our stay here. The marina renovations are nearly done--many criticisms in earlier posts are not valid.

The marina is large, you may have a 0.4mi walk to the facilities if you are in the worst possible slip but the staff are happy to provide rides in their golf carts. It is now possible to exit directly to Broadway Ave and the parking lot from the north docks. There is a nice little beach by the north docks and peanut island is about 1 minute away by dinghy.

Security at the marina is excellent. The area outside the marina is not the greatest but my husband and I walked around during the day without any problems. There are a couple of sub shops, a Popeyes Chicken, The Badie Grill and a pizza shop within walking (1 mile). There is also a Publix and a Walgreens about the same distance, and Boat Owners Warehouse is closeby. There is bus service, although we walked or Ubered if going further. You can walk to Singer island in under 1/2 an hour.

Docks: Very nice, newer floating docks. 30 and 50A service and water at every slip. Pumpouts at slip, no charge.
Staff: Excellent. Everyone we met was helpful and friendly. A special mention of Tim on the docks who did a great job getting our full-keel, high-windage monohull tied up at full current in 15 knot winds and was super helpful with getting our groceries back to the boat.
WiFi: Excellent. We had 2 different 5G signals at the boat (on the north dock)

Facilities: New restrooms are not ready, but the cabanas were large and clean. Although there were only 2 we did not experience a wait at any time. Laundry was also reasonable at $1.50 for wash or dry, althought he machnes are a bit older.

The rate, at $1.75 a foot was good for the area. 30A power was a little steep at $15/day, but we just used our solar. There are boats with ACs that use 30A so I can understand the charge.

First Impressions, 2016-11-09
Captain: , Rye Beach, NH (10)

Just arrived and found the new management company is doing a wonderful job. Very helpfull.

4-10-16 stay , 2016-04-11
Captain: , Burns Harbor Indiana (881)

Nice Marina across from Peanut Island making it great to dinghy across and see the museum and Kennedy bunker. We were on N dock, a VERY long walk to restrooms, office and showers.

Nice docks, but transient slips are a long walk from anything, 2016-02-27
Captain: , United States (3192)

We spent a month here and had a great experience. These are some of the nicest floating docks we've ever seen. We found the prices, while high compared to some places, to be completely in line with the Palm Beach area, and, in fact, we initially chose RBM based on price.

The current does run fast through here and I recommend you arrive near slack, which follows high or low tide (use the Port of WPB station) by about a half hour. We saw some boats have difficulty negotiating the current.

Construction is ongoing, and untl the new office/multipurpose building is finished, offices, restrooms, and showers are in temporary modular units at the south end of the property (more or less where the Tiki Bar was, for those who remember it), near the entrance to the south docks.

The layout of the docks means that the slips closest to the entrance failrway, where most transients are berthed (and which are the easiest for docking) are a very long walk to shore, and the north dock itself is a long way from the office, parking, and access to the street (walking directly west from the north dock is not possible due to the construction. We were assigned a distant slip on the north dock and found it was nearly a half mile walk to the parking lot from our boat; we asked to be moved.

Slips all have water and 50-amp power, with 30-amp adapters available from the office. Pumpouts are at the slips and the dockhands come to you with the hose.

We found the entire staff to be very accommodating, and dockmaster Lee is clearly very focussed on customer satisfaction. We would not hesitate to return when next we are in the Riviera Beach area.

Incidentally, CBP is a short walk away at the port HQ, so this is a great place to tie up when checking back in to the US.

The only thing that keeps me from awarding the fifth star is WiFi, which does not extend past the marina office. This is really a non-negotiable ammenity in the 21st century. We made do with access on our cell phones, but c'mon, guys, for $1.75 a foot you really need to have WiFi at the docks.

There are no restaurants in easy walking distance. The C-Store at the Marathon gas station across the street has essentials like milk, beer, snacks, and some limited hot food items. Miami Subs is a half mile north. The #1 bus (Palm Beach County) runs right past the marina and will take you down to Northwood (many nice restaurants) or all the way to downtown West Palm Beach, or, in the other direction, to a shopping center with a Publix grocery and several other stores.

Beautiful new floating docks, but they are not worth the visit., 2016-02-07
Captain: , Annapolis (3379)

Price is way above the amenities offered. $1.75 with nothing. Heads and showers are in trailers, but at least they are dirty. Can you believe $15 per night for 30 amp service?? Seriously, and they don't care that they are way off the market. Staff is mediocre. They do not seem to care if you come to the marina. Dock hands are poorly trained. The layout of the docks is insane. Hard to get into the he slips if the current is running. the WiFI only works on the office patio, but they don't tell you that when you register. This is certainly the worst marina experience I have had. We live aboard and cruise full time and can name at least 20 marinas I have visited in the last 6 months alone. This is one experience I hope we can laugh off one day

Expensive for the current amenities., 2016-01-13
Captain: , Point Edward (459)

Docks are awesome but be prepared for a very long walk to the office and washrooms/showers. Construction continues. WiFi non-existent unless you are outside the office with your laptop.

Price is in line with amenities, 2015-12-18
Captain: , Plano, Texas sv Mariposa (345)

Reservations are made with Lee. He was most helpful in accomodating my extended stay with a catamaran.

New floating docks are great.
Dinghy dock price is now $15.90 including tax per day.

pretty good stop, 2015-12-08
Captain: , Indialantic, FL (20)

Ducked in here to get out of bad weather. Docks are great. Staff is very helpful. Showers are big and private. No fuel. Pump out at each slip done by staff. Inexpensive stay. When the new facility is done rates will go up.

New floating docks, nice staff, 2015-11-20
Captain: , Hartfield, VA (160)

Beautiful new docks, easy in and out
Super nice staff made us feel welcome
This is a MegaMarina in the making, long walk to office/facilities (staff uses golf carts)
Limited areas to walk the dog, and it is probably unwise to go outside the marina at night

Under construction new docks, 2015-11-04
Captain: , Annapolis (40)

The city has opted to build a taj Mahal and is charging big money. 2 showers for too many slips. They clearly do not want transients given all the comercial dinner boats and dive boats there . 1 mile walk from N dock to the office . Try Lake Park marina a mile or less north

Not only no... Hell no!, 2015-11-02
Captain: , Iotta Louisiana (404)

Stopped here in 91 porting in from Colon Panama. Nice small marina with restuarant fuel showers etc. No more alas...

32' minimum at $1.75 plus power. Pretty easy goin' and I understand the reason for minimums (I am in Florida after all) so OK, want to top off batteries and fuel and get an early start outside when the wind shifts in the morning.

So 75 bucks later... Nice docks but where I am moor stern to less you have a 100' cord. Long way to the power at the top of the ramp. Restuarant closed and demolished. Fuel docks closed under construction. No wifi except within 50' of office. No shopping and "ships store" at marina is 3 sodas and a rack of chips. Noise and dirt during the day from huge construction project the entire length of the marina.

Not too impressive for 3 bucks a foot. Sadder but wiser.
Just sayin...

Nice place, 2015-06-11
Captain: , Virginia Beach, Virginia (84)

We stopped in for the night. Got stuck on 4' depth sand bar 30' off of North dock - not good for catamarans if you are unaware. Docks are brand new and very nice. Dock staff very friendly and helpful. Facilities ashore still under construction.

In A State Of Flux, 2015-01-16
Captain: , Port Aransas (992)

The staff make this marina. They are so accommodating and always around to help. The docks are nice floating concrete, get your fenders out before you come in. There are pump outs at every slip.

A fair amount of cross current washes through so call them to help you dock.

The Marina is undergoing massive upgrades so there is a lot of construction going on with pumps running loudly all night and day. The town is not much to look at but there are busses running frequently so you can get to services needed.

The prices were not unreasonable but could reflect the current state of amenities a bit better. There is decent wifi which we could get on our boat with the booster.

There are six washers/dryers available for $1.50 to wash /$1.50 to dry.

It's a good place to take a break if you need to get off the hook for a bit while waiting for a weather window to cross to Bahamas from Lake Worth Inlet.

state of the art marina with helpful staff, 2015-01-12
Captain: , Grassy Key (32)

I had to limp in with one engine of my powercatamaran stuck in reverse. They sent the army to the dock to get me safely tied up. I had no reservation but they got me a spot in minutes. The docks are first rate floating concrete with plenty of power and water. The whole place looks new. They are building a new restaurant. So temporary dining is aboard great floating restaurant. I will be back.

Great Docks, 2015-01-07
Captain: , Newport, RI (80)

We made reservations in advance for a months stay while having warranty work done on our Beneteau. Also a place to leave the boat so we could travel home for the holidays the docks here are state of the art . I was so disappointed in the town. Very much a slum. Don't leave the Marina it's just not safe. The restaurant Tides 41 was fantastic . The food and the staff were amazing. The staff at the marina was very helpful and the also have great security. The town is going through a major re development so I imagine in a few years the place should be pretty special. Not sure that I'll return. We rented a car each weekend. Enterprise had a great $9.99 deal on weekends. We were able to shop and provision.
Gypsea Winds.

Riviera Beach Muni Marina has greatly improved!, 2014-12-20
Captain: , Annapolis (131)

After reading the previous reviews we reluctantly made a reservation at Riviera Bch Muni Marina. We were very pleasantly surprised to find brand new concrete floating piers throughout. The dock layout on nav charts is incorrect; all new extended layout. Inside the marina the concrete docks knock down all wakes coming from the ICW. North side: 4' depth, quieter, view of bridge. South side: 12' depth, facing industrial harbor. The Tiki Bar is gone. The Tides41 floating restaurant and bar is now on the SE dock.

The staff was very friendly and helpful - Dockmaster Mark, Office mgr Debbie, and Dockhand Roosevelt. We arrived about an hr early but Roosevelt was waiting to handle our lines. He made a wonderful first impression for the marina. The bathroom cabanas were recently renovated and were clean and spacious.

The marina and adjacent area is under a major building program. Planned: new Marriott hotel, shops, restaurants. Construction on a new marina office with conference center is scheduled to start in approx 2 months. New fuel tanks are going in now and a new Fuel Bldg and store will be on the SE corner of the docks.

We originally stopped to go to the US Customs office nearby. We stayed an extra day to tour Peanut Island. What a recreational gem! Dinked over to the island to see the Maritime Museum, historic USCG Station, and JFK's bunker. Built by the USN Seabees in 1961 at the height of the Cold War. The tour (Thurs - Sun) was well worth the $14 price.

We also dinked up to the Blue Heron Bridge (A1A) to Foster Park with its beach and underwater snorkel trail.
We will be back.

good, service not so good, 2014-11-19
Captain: , miami (120)

Docks were brand new floating docks, price much less than private marinas (this is a municipal marina). Really good there. Try finding a marina employee, though, or raising one on VHF. I hope you're in no hurry...

More construction at RBMM, 2014-10-29
Captain: , Palm Beach, FL (31)

The marina is currently functional, but construction is ongoing. The main parking lot is ripped up in preparation for new construction. Northside walkway alongside the dock has been ripped up. Tiki Bar is closed and surrounding buildings demolished. The existing office will be the last bldg. taken down. Fuel dock is expected to be down for another 2 months. Great floating docks and pumpouts.

Good customer service, 2014-07-04
Captain: , Corpus Christi (301)

I spent several weeks here getting a boat ready to take to Texas. The staff was helpful in many ways.

Convenient for Customs and new docks are nice, 2014-02-20
Captain: , Ottawa (1173)

There's a lot of work going on here, with new concrete floating docks going in. They're still working on the fuel dock, so no fuel here yet. Close to customs for clearing in. The dockage rate is probably going to get jacked up when the work is done in a year or so, so this will probably be our last time here.

Also, watch the current when you're docking. It can really mess with your dock approach.

No fuel and no customer service, 2013-11-19
Captain: , Port Canaveral Yacht Club (107)

The fuel docks are under construction and the noise is deafening during working hours. Also the office refused to send someone to help us in because it was too close to quitting time @ 4:30 when they close @ 5:30. We left here and had mechanical problems, had to be towed back to the Marina. Even then with a disabled sailboat under tow, the Marina Office was more concerned with quitting time then getting us safely into our slip. The dock hand that came out was efficient and polite. But only after towboat US called the marina multiple times, did the office agree to send a single dockhand. Although their rate is $1.75/foot, they also charge a minimum $15/day if you connect to the electricity at all, which for our 30 ft boat comes out to $2.25/foot - same as the Sailfish Marina across the waterway!

Good and bad and the Ugly, 2013-11-06
Captain: , Key Largo (5457)

The so called dockmaster lady who handles the phone, and if it's the same one, that collects the fees, really needs to work on her people skills.
As the person who gives you the first impression of the marina, she made me feel like I was at the state drivers license office!

Good is
it is close to P Nut Island, if your here on a sunday it's a fun spot. Also it's right next door to the local tiki bar.
and last, it's the cheapest in the area, but there it a reason.
The bad is it's old, run down, fixed concrete and piliing docks, cleats are in the wrong spot, so we had to tie to the top of the pilings to prevent chaffing, and it's rolly.

Warning new dock layout, 2013-07-14
Captain: , New Smyrna Beach (10)

The dock layout on the chart does not look like the new dock layout.. Also no dock numbers visible from the boat. The new east docks are very narrow don't even try anything bigger than 35 foot boat.. Use caution when there is a tide..don't leave the fenced marina area on foot or bike dangerous area.. Take car only...

nice new docks, everything else tired and doubtful, 2013-06-11
Captain: , houston, tx (403)

Rare to register at a marina through a window that is more reminiscent of buying a pack of cigarettes at a convenience store in a bad section of town. The dock staff did not seem to be boaters or understand the show. The current in the marina was manageable. The new docks are nice but the fairways are a bit narrow. Not worth the money, especially the electricity fee.

Still under construction, but wow. , 2013-05-15
Captain: , Ft. Pierce FL. (221)

Stopped by for fuel but their diesel pump was down. Stopped back following day for lunch at tiki bar. Facilities are very nice. Can't wait to see what it's like when completed.

Disappointing, 2013-05-08
Captain: , Ft Myers, Fl (60)

New floating docks. The rest of the place is in a state of disrepair . Restaurant was terrible. Dock staff rude.

Good for short visit, 2013-04-09
Captain: , Dover, DE (19)

Staff was very accomadating and helpful. Brand new docks designed by a non-boater. Bow cleats are on a non-floating dock. Floating dock has too few cleats in the wrong places. Brillant designer also placed a metal ladder inside the slip where it can damage the boat, and it will also allow a body to be caught between the boat and the ladder. The marina fronts the TIKI lounge where bands play all day until 11Pm. Get a slip on the left side of the TIKI hut to reduce noise. This will also get you away from the Peanut Island ferry which runs its engine contiuosly while waiting for passengers, and loading/unloading. Wi-Fi is non-existant unless you camp ouside the marina office. The office says to use the TIKI's Wi-Fi and TIKI says get the password from the office who says get it from TIKI. Neighborhood not great. Supermarket @ 3, 4 and 5 miles. West Marine 6 miles.

Nice place, 2013-03-27
Captain: , Lake Champlain (40)

I just dropped in for a quick pump out and I think their new installation is stoupendous. Really nice docks, and most have a permanent pumpout valve. I've never seen that before.

Service was A1, easy access, deep clear water and a nice bar/restaurant to boot. Great sponsor we should all encourage.

Once glitches worked out, will be great, 2013-03-13
Captain: , St. Thomas, USVI (624)

We stayed one night here (January 2013) as our last stop before Fort Lauderdale and were on the new docks. They had been open for less than a week so not everyone in the office was familiar with the layout. Also complicating things was the fact that the dock staff have no VHF radios. There was a lot of confusion about where we were supposed to go since there were no slip numbers visible on the new docks yet and we were originally slated for a slip that was way too small for us. The way the docks are configured, require a long walk around a long dock and then around a rectangle so it took the dock staff awhile to get to us and they were winded when they arrived. I am hoping that they have a golf cart next time as they were run ragged! The new docks themselves are very nice and once all the kinks are worked out, it will be a great stop. We will be asking for an outside/alongside slip next time.

Pump out broken.. not repaired for some time, 2013-03-05
Captain: , Key Largo (392)

The pump out facility at this marina has been broken for months. We ended up going to North Palm Beach Marina for fuel and pump out.

Fuel Dock Pump=Out Out of Service, 2013-02-20
Captain: , Nyack, NY (646)

This may be a short term problem. The Fuel Dock Pump=Out is out of service for the next two weeks. We came from the anchorage and told to go to an inner slip instead of the T-Head Fuel Dock. The wind and currents would have pinned us to the dock, so we declined and went elswhere. Cannot fairly rate this facility, Just a heads up.

Most Improved - That's an Understatement!, 2013-01-22
Captain: , MV Red Head (3106)

We pulled into the marina just days before they were to open the first phase of their massive renovation project. It was our first time and we are pleased that we were able to see the "before and after." We stayed on one of the old fixed docks and can readily understand the comments of the previous reviewers. The were old and tired and it was difficult to get us, let alone the dogs, off and on. Fortunately, the staff is terrific and very friendly and helpful. Nicola took us for a tour of the new docks and we had serious dock envy. They are beautiful, wide floating docks with huge cleats, wide access ramps, lovely lighting, pump out at every slip - these are 1st class all the way. There's a big new Publix about a 1 mile walk/bike ride along wide sidewalks. Make sure to try the Tiki restaurant on site, good food and a nice atmosphere with live music in the evening.

They were holding an opening ceremony on January 24th, which we are very sorry to miss, and beginning the renovation of the rest of the facilities. We can't wait to return to see and enjoy this wonderful facility.

New Configuration of docks is something for everyone, 2013-01-06
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (486)

They will officially open their new floating docks next week we've heard, but this facility is likely to be the "GO TO" place in this area. The new Tiki Bar has brought a ton of business (well deserved, although we're not Tiki Bar people) as the prime time music is great! We are at a fixed concrete dock and are happy with the height and width and access to it. Don't know about the other facilities, as we are self-sufficient in showers and toilets.

They don't cater to transients, 2012-12-07

Wouldn't lend us a bathroom key for our overnight stay.

Fuel dock In-Op, 2012-11-19

Nov 13 2012 We arrived to top off Fuel. Fuel dock was in-operative. no time frame was given as to when repairs would be complete.

Rough but getting better, 2012-11-07
Captain: , Kemah, TX (622)

Obviously, from the other reviews, service is getting better. The slips need to be refurbished badly. We stayed here in April of this year and we stopped back over this month (Nov) while anchored across the ICW for gas for the outboard. Lady at the dock desk was very talkative and pleasant. Not sure if it was the same lady as the first time, if it was then things are getting better.

Nice resaurant and parts store withing walking distance.

Great location; facility is tired, 2012-06-09
Captain: , Welaka,Fl (60)

Reasonable slip fees. Half of the marina is closed; upgrading to floating docks. Active dicks are tired. Clean water and power. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Minimal protection from occasional wakes. Tiki Bar is a good place to eat; loud into the night on weekends. It's run like a typical governmen facility. Diesel was 30 cents more per gallon than Sailfish across the channel. WiFI provided by Tiki Bar ...slow and unreliable.

Not a queit marina, 2012-03-26
Captain: , Full Time Cruisers (2244)

Luck would have it for us to stay here on a Sundaynight, the Tiki bar hadl live music into the evening, great if your not looking to get sleep. The slips are tight a 17-18 feet wide. Water pressure will drop off sometimes, be carefull if your are showering.

Good for the price but not for a vacation, 2012-01-18
Captain: , Apponaug, Rhode Island (274)

The docks are tired. The area is not safe. Use cabs if you leave the marina. The store is small with limited products. The staff was nice but the person who checked me in was new and took a longtime. The slips can be hard to get into because of current. It is fun to watch the action over at Peanut Island. Lots of drunk people having fun in the sun. A good overnight spot to get rest at a good price before moving on.

There are some good points, 2011-07-30
Captain: , West Palm Beach (121)

Clean water, great restaurant and laundry room, bathrooms kind of tired. Strong sideways current makes getting in and out of the slips a bear unless you time it to the tides. I understand the marina is going to rebuild and change the orientation of the slips which will make getting in and out easier.

Neighbood is dangerous. Call a cab--the Tikki restaurant bar employees can get you the number. In defense of the staff I will say that during my stay there anchorage residents did sometimes take advantage and one boat ran out on its slip fees.

YIKES-- somehow they assume something negative about anyone arriving by dinghy, 2011-04-17
Captain: , Hampton, VA (2573)

I went around in the dinghy looking for a place to dock our catamaran to have the fuel tanks cleaned.

When I pulled up to the fuel dock to talk with the dockmaster, a person came out and told me I had to get off and go to the dinghy dock. This was ok. What disturbed me was I was told I had to pay to tie up, even though the individual didn't bother asking why I was there. Overall impression was one of hostility.

Too bad.

Rough but cheap, 2011-03-05
Captain: , Nashville, TN (290)

This marina has a strong sideways current that makes docking a challenge. Do have a fender board due to pilings. Lots of boat traffic make for rolly evening. Neighborhood not safe.Take cab over to Fisher Island for better restaurants. Probably wont return

Convenient location for fishing boats, 2011-01-25
Captain: , Hernando Beach, Fl (300)

This is a great location and very reasonable pricing. There is a real fun tiki bar restaurant, but that's all. The docks are run down, but the bathrooms were recently upgraded and are very nice. It's in a terrible neighborhood, but has good security. Convenient to the party crowd at Peanut Island on the weekends. No TV or Wifi.

Riviera Beach is horrible, 2011-01-25
Captain: , St. Louis, MO (227)

1. Very strong cross currents
2. Unknowledgeable staff
3. Unfriendly to downright surly staff (except for 2)
4. Moderately shabby conditions
5. Unsafe neighborhood

Take it or Leave it, 2011-01-16
Captain: , Shelter Island, NY (211)

It is tough to manuver and we got no help from marina. Finding our slip was a challenge. Had to go down two fairways then back out (no small stint with our single screw in current and wind) Finally found slip and na no problem getting in a secure. You really should have a fender board for these situations. Liked the Tiki Bar and that the docks are locked to the public when the office closes. Water is clear peaceful. Fuel was very high ($4.05 gal) We stopped at Loggerhead just north of the bridge for $3.24 gal. Call ahead, it's your money!

Great staff medicore facilities, 2010-08-11
Captain: , Everglades City, FL (230)

The dockmaster was very helpful in assisting with docking in the strong currents along the fixed concrete docks. The approach to transient slips is tricky. The staff and food at the on site Tiki Bar are good. The bathroom and laundry facilites are new. Marina does not offer wi-fi.

Great Value for S. FL., 2009-12-15
Captain: , Delray Beach, FL (327)

Very friendly and accomodating staff. Easy inlet access. Handles 8' draft, but recommend coordinating ahead for local knowlege. Good Tiki Bar/Restaurant. Right next to very good yard (Cracker Boys Boat Works)

One of the worst places I have stayed.

Great access to inlet; surrounded by commercial area. Excellent restaurant on premises (Tiki Bar).

Captain: , Vancouver BC (500)

Friendly staff, our boat is 43 ft and it just fits ok, 50a power and water at the boat. Some larger slips avaiable, suggest calling ahead, rate was good, 1.02 per ft plus tax and electric. i
it's at least a 3 star.
