Reviews for St Christopher's Marina
Now way would we stay., 2011-03-31
Captain: , Port OConnor, Tx (628)

Could not recommend them. Unfriendly to sailboats as we don't spend enough money. Price is over priced for the services. Best to anchor out in the bay is weather permits.



St Christopher's is improving, 2010-05-24
Captain: , Scottsdale Arizona (67)

We have stayed there three times in the last year. We draw six feet and only go in the west slip of the two right on the ICW to get enough depth. Power and water have been repaired, Mike is back in charge and sold the motel so the Marina is no longer tied to the Tarpon Motel which has been a problem in the past. We haven't had a problem rocking from ICW traffic. There are 2-3 decent local restaurants and a good sized supermarket within walking distance. Also you can buy fresh fish near by. The biggest problem is the restrooms/showers whcih are old and not in good shape.

I agree with Capt.Keith. After staying here I will anchor the next time. At the price charged, not worth it.



Overnight stop, 2009-09-25
Captain: , Nassau Bay (185)

A 36', a 38' and my 45' motor vessel overnighted here on 9/18/09. We layed side to on the bulkhead and had power and water. It is still $1/foot and Mike, the owner was very cordial and welcoming. It needs to be verified, but the marina and the Tarpon Inn are no longer owned by the same person. Many cruising guides have instructions to call the Inn for marina info/reservations. The Inn no longer handles this and should refer you to Mike, the owner of the marina for reservations. We had a nice evening on the dock, and the wakes from the ICW were not bad. The most action came from the 5:30a.m. anglers who speed out of the ICW on a pretty Saturday morning to do their fishing. All in all, a very pleasant stop for an overnight stay. Cannot comment on local services i.e. markets, rest., etc, but there is fuel in the area.

Captain: , Texas (2)

agree with previous reviewer. You will rock and roll all night long due to proximity to GICW.



Slips only, 2007-02-23
Captain: , Houston, TX (1409)

This "marina" only has slips and a little bulkhead space. At $1/foot, it would be better to anchor out. The only saving grace is Clark's restaurant within walking / dinghy distance.
