Reviews for Southpoint Marina
Fuel Docks, 2009-06-02
Captain: , Port Isabel TX (640)

Reasonable prices for Fuel and Gasoline. Easy docking. Well stocked convenience store and clean restrooms.



Not particularly friendly for transients, 2007-12-04
Captain: , Tropical Tip of Texas (145)

Large travel-lift, stack storage. The only haul and dry storage in the area, so they are not price competitive (wanted $140 to haul a 17' boat for a few minutes). Right on the ICW in a reasonably protected area. Some slips, bow or stern tie.
