Reviews for Sailfish Marina
no problem, tricky approach and exit, 2014-11-19
Captain: , miami (120)

We didn't use the facilities much, but the docks were good. The channel running of the main inlet channel is not terribly well marked, especially on the east side. And if you are there on a weekend, it can be a real circus trying to get across the rail-to-rail traffic between the inlet channel and Peanut Island. Enormous number of power boats with fun-seeking youngsters.



Tough docking, nice spot, 2014-01-25
Captain: , Ft Myers, Florida (1663)

Very heavy tidal current flowing forward or aft. Fairly tight fairways make for and exciting docking experience for the unfamiliar. Fix docks add to the excitement.
Great restaurant on site . The Thursday Sidewalk art fair is really good.
Dock hands young but very helpful.
Staff friendly, bathrooms used a lot could be cleaner.
Fun watching charter boats come in . Water taxi to peanut island. Highly recommend the Palm Beach water taxi tour leaving from here. Nice older Motel on site, with pool. Great neighborhood for walking or biking. A few other restaurants and small grocery about 5 blocks away. Sell bait and fishing supplies on site as well as a store for tourist and fishing clothes.



Very comfortable , 2013-05-27
Captain: , Orlando, FL (275)

Stayed two nights. Current does make it tricky to get into docks, but hail friendly staff on 68 and they are on the spot to get you in safe and adjust all your lines for the tides. They earn their tips. . Don't feel bad if it takes multiple attempts to get into dock, slow and easy will get you in eventually. No worries mon, your on a boat! Great restaurant. Bath house is dated, but clean. Short walk to Johnny longboats, great food, live music, and much cheaper than the marina restaurant. Tiki bar across from west side of island also good food and music. Groceries just other side of bridge. Stop by north dock and meet Mike who does sailing charters, great guy, lives on the boat and has lots of local tips.



Great restaurat, 2013-05-22
Captain: , Ft. Myers, Fl. (361)

Friendly staff, great food and atmosphere. Sunset Celabration is fun on Thursdays. Good place to be when crossing over to the Bahama's.
Dockage is very pricey but restaurant is in line with others in the area.



Very nice but very up scale, 2013-05-15
Captain: , Ft. Pierce FL. (208)

Stopped in for fuel, 4.55 per. Thought that was a little high but we only hold 38 gallons so it doesn't pay to run around for the absolute best price. We where there on Mother's Day so it was a mad house. Facilities are top drawer, but you pay for it. Regular transient rate is 3.00/ ft. Needless to say we moved on. Stopped back the following day, by dink, and had breakfast. Nice place to visit, but cannot afford to live there.



A bit pricey. Needs TLC., 2013-05-08
Captain: , Ft Myers, Fl (60)

Staff has been great. Friendly & helpful. Fish tacos are best ever. Laundry & bath in poor state of repair. Over all place needs some TLC. Really short Finger docks makes boarding hard. Watch out for the current best to go in at slack tides. Boat traffic doesn't idle down at fuel dock.



Leave at slack tide...or get a bow thruster, 2013-05-08
Captain: , Merritt Island, FL (372)

We spent a pleasant night there and had 2 nice meals (restaurant is very good), but had a hell of a time getting out of our slip when it was time to go. We tied up bow-in to a slip that ran N-S on the north side of the marina. When we tried to back out (at full throttle) we only got 30' back before the current turned us sideways and pinned us crossways between 2 pilings. It took some crazy maneuvering and creative line handling to get incrementally unstuck. Sailboats (especially those without thrusters) should avoid the north docks or arrange to leave at slack tide.



Nice Overnight Spot, 2013-05-07
Captain: , Philadelphia (90)

Spent the night on our way north. Nice bar, big restaurant with outside dining. Decent ships store. Cool underwater dock lighting with lots of fish in the water. The only downside is that the restaurant doesn't open until 7am.



Tough Current, 2013-03-29
Captain: , Ft Pierce (10)

Do not reccomend this marina for any boat without a bow thruster. Very fast current and if there is any wind you will have difficulty docking. Will not go there again.



Always a good stay., 2012-05-04
Captain: , Baltimore, MD (185)

I'm sure others have posted about the speed of the water that runs through this place, but the dock hands are quite helpful. The grounds are well kept, the pool is very nice, the staff overall is very nice. We very much enjoy the Thursday night craft show every year we come through. "Grouper Dogs" make for good eats!



Sailfish Marina is our favorite place to stay!, 2012-01-27
Captain: , West Palm Beach (10)

The marina staff is very friendly & helpful, it is the closesty marina to the inlet. The restaurant & bar are located right on the seawall with great views of Peanut Island. They have a great store and nice, clean cottages to rent. Sailfish is true paradise which I highly reccomend! Be careful of strong currents with tide changes.



Good stopover, 2011-11-04
Captain: , Nashville, TN (290)

Marina in great shape. Current runs through pretty strong so close to the inlet. Restaurant on property is very good. Mostly powerboats.



Better for motorboats, 2011-11-04
Captain: , Daytona Beach, FL (533)

We stayed there in our sailboat and was a bit disappointed with the docks. Very difficult to get off the very short finger piers. They were made for wide transomed motorboats backing into the slip - not for sailboats coming in bow first. Restaurant was good.



Very Commercial, 2011-06-05
Captain: , Palm Coast, FL (385)

High fixed docks can make boarding difficult at mid to low tide. Staff is very attentive and helpful. Restaurant is very pricy but good. Strong current can make getting into an inner slip difficult.



Great location for Sport Fishermen, 2011-01-25
Captain: , Hernando Beach, Fl (300)

Located just inside the inlet,with well maintained docks. It is extremely touristy, if you like that. It is rather expensive too. Strong currents.



Real Nice Place - Stressed People, 2008-11-05
Captain: , Stuart, Florida (2)

I love the food, the setting, the locale, but the people are not real nice on the Marina side. They always seem over stressed and give you the feeling that they are doing you a favor by spending $10k a year with them.



Sailfish Marina, 2008-10-28
Captain: , Carrabelle, FL (62)

Pretty, nice docks, lots of current but overpriced and the rudest worst service of any marina I have stayed at in the SE US. Great place if you want to see and be seen, pay a ton of money and be abused by the help.

Small pool on site. Nice store.



Good Spot for a day or a month, 2007-07-11
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (258)

This is a small marina just inside the Lakeworth Inlet. The current is strong and can be very challenging when docking . The marina has a nice restrauant that serves B-L-D and is next door to another nice place at the Buccaneer. These places get a lot of locals for meals.

The docks are well maintained and there are a couple of cottages for rent on the property.

Thursday nights the marina hosts an open to the public artsy fair and lot sof locals come down to stroll the docks and meet boaters (wink).

Great stop for sports fisherman. Close to the port and West End, Bahamas is 65 miles due east.
