Reviews for Tarpon Point Marina
pretentious, 2016-06-07
Captain: , Lakeview Park Marina Windsor ON (356)

staff and management here are more concerned about their comfort than yours! the grounds and magnificent. manicured is a good word. the place is over priced and underperforming. my guess is that you'd need a mid six figures boat and attitude to even show up on their customer service radar. we stayed two night only because we had no choice based on our needs. won't be back!

Beautiful facility, disapointing staff., 2016-02-04
Captain: , Port Charlotte FL (210)

After living a month on a mooring ball my wife and I were looking forward to a month long visit to this facility. Restaurants, bars and shops sounded good to us. We made our reservation, and then proceeded to confirm our reservation the next morning. When we arrived later that day the harbor master said he didn't have a reservation for us and he didn't have a slip for us for a month long stay. He said he could fit us in for a week. We agreed to take it on the condition that we are charged a prorated monthly rate and not the daily rate of $2.50 ft. He agreed and assigned us to a slip. No employees came to help us dock. By the time we moored and made our way to the office the harbor master said that there is no way he could give us a prorated monthly rate because the fee would be too little.

There is more but you get the idea.

The facilities are beautiful. Very clean with several restaurants and bars on the premises. The sun sets behind palm tree lined mangroves which was a real treat. There are large walking paths and a couple of good spots to take your dog for a little exercise. The floating docks are very wide and sturdy. The fixed piers look brand new.

There isn't much else around (within walking distance) other than what is on the premises.

With a more competent staff, this place would have easily earned a 5 star rating. The harbor master actually said, "the girl we have taking reservations is new and she doesn't even know what the beam of a boat means."

We stayed one night and then moved on.

An interesting dynamic, 2015-12-30
Captain: , Washington, DC (20)

The dockmaster was very friendly and chatty - I should know as I spent a pretty good amount of time on the fuel dock. Brought back a SWFY day charter boat for fuel and the dockmaster did not want me to return the boat to the dock, clearly wanting the SWFY staff to take the boat around. In contrast, the SWFY staff member just as clearly felt I was fully qualified to bring the boat in. Both the dockmaster and the SWFY were each very friendly, but it is clear that there is some space between the marina and the charter company on us credit card captains. I can understand why that would be the case, but I think that the marina and the charter company would both be better served if they could come to an agreement about this issue.
I want to emphasize that both are friendly and this was not a big issue for me, but I would suggest that a 5 star rating for the marina would be contingent on not putting the customer in the middle of a difference of opinion between two businesses.

A very civilized place to stay over, 2015-12-14
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (118)

Beautiful new docks, nice Marina store and helpful Harbormaster and staff. Easy access to a couple great restaurants. The Westin is a great property.

Entertaining Atmosphere, 2015-02-25
Captain: , Stuart FL (478)

Well sheltered harbor with resort-like atmosphere, convenient stop to / from Ft. Myers, etc. Dock staff seemed totally overwhelmed with two runabouts re-fueling and one sailboat checking in. Two helped with fueling while dockmaster stood off to side talking on his cell phone. Nice guys, just not buttoned-up. Piers clean, wide and sturdy. Heads / showers clean. Lack of laundry is negative. Two-for-1 wine special daily 3-7pm at Marina Village Trading, among shops on pier eases the pain of the daily dockage rate.

One night stay, 2015-02-05
Captain: , Fernandina, FL (428)

Stop at fuel dock to sign in. Staff didn't know which side the finger peir was on but generally friendly. Slip was very narrow for my 13' beam. Showers out of service at close rest room and a long walk to fuel dock for showers. Nice hotel and friendly staff allowed use of computer and printer. Didn't eat at several restaurants in hotel and along harbour. Good neighborhoods for a walk.

Pumpout charge dropped, now free again!, 2014-05-21
Captain: , Hudson, FL (102)

The old dockmaster is gone. New dockmaster and marina management realized what a bad business decision the $35 pump out charge was so back to free pumpouts. Always a good idea to buy some fuel and/or tip the dock workers if you are getting a free pump out and water.

Yet Another Good SWFL Stopping Place, 2014-02-12
Captain: , Punta Gorda. FL (360)

Follow the well marked channel to Glover%u2019s Bight and stop at the dockmaster/gas dock on your port side to sign in, get a slip assignment and buy ice. The dockmaster is located a long walk from the slips. Excellent quality recently re-done fixed docks, but you%u2019re on your own to get in and tie up. Marina staff are a bit crusty but warm up once they figure you aren%u2019t one of those rascally freeloaders at anchor in the bight. (Dinghies do seem to come in unmolested to the restaurant slip area.) The locals on the dock are very friendly. No cable, and WIFI is iffy. Good boater showers are available nearby at the back of the yacht charter building. Marina guests also have free access to the fitness center with nice showers and two nice pools in the community recreation center, located across the street and down about a quarter mile. Westin is now managing the beautiful hotel with a nice outdoor bar/casual eating place and the very good Marker 92 restaurant. Pincher%u2019s Crab Shack has been a great addition, livening the place up and doing a lot to fill the marina. The place is quiet after 2200 hours. Some interesting shops are springing up.The admiral reports a good boutique as well as a few odds-and-ends shops. A nice stop to enjoy a little luxury.

Pumpout now $35, 2014-01-13
Captain: , Toronto, ON (40)

I went in to Tarpon Point Marina today for pumpout and a little fuel. Before I had even docked, the man on the dock called out to tell me that pumpout is now $35. He said this was a new policy that started January 10, 2014.

He neglected to take my lines, and instead ran inside to find out the minimum amount of fuel that I would have to buy in order to receive a free pumpout. Turns out it's 10 gallons, which I could not accomodate.

He then lectured me as follows, "Sailors. You get the wind free and you think everything else should be free." He went on to moan about the enormous cost of running the pumpout system and how the owners would go broke if they didn't charge at least $35 per pumpout because, "too many people were using it."

Looking at the marina, it is difficult for me to imagine the owners going broke for any reason, particularly the pumpout. It is very nicely appointed, and the dockage looked full.

I left without buying anything, on principle. This was a very negative experience, and just the kind of thing that would cause me to caution other boaters to avoid a marina. If the pumpout is to be $35, then so be it, but please do not insult me and lecture me on top of it.

Nice Marina ,Good Staff,Good Food, 2013-11-21

Elegant with a Westin next door, 2013-11-06
Captain: , Fort Myers, FL (979)

Quiet and protected, easily accessed fuel dock. We usually just anchor in the bight rather than tie up. On our last stay, the harbor master wanted to charge us the stipulated $10 dinghy access fee but let us off the hook when we explained we weren't going to use any of ther facilities just hit the docks for a walk/run. The fee seems excessive to enforce for just landing a dink and even for the only available services of bathrooms and showers. they need to get together with the Westin and encourage boaters stepping for the restaurants. The shopping is only some waterside boutiques and galleries. There is a Pincher's Crab Shack opening real-soon-now. The Westin's restaurant is quite good, fun happy hour, and thein bell staff saved our bacon by finding a notary to get an urgent document executed and faxed to our son. Would have rated the marina higher but for their fixed docks and the inappropriate (but basicly ignored) dinghy fee.

Nice marina, 2013-05-11
Captain: , Punta Gorda, Fl (880)

This is easy access off the ICW at marker 92. No lock to deal with. Nice docks and staff to help.This is located on hotel resort/condos property. The pool and fitness center for boaters is a few blocks walk, or short bike ride. Also has a covered AC building for groups to use. Cruising clubs very welcome. Good restaurant on site. Nice variety of shops. Hotel is under new management so we hope to see this property succeed.

Very nice and clean, 2013-04-06
Captain: , Galveston Bay (52)

They were very nice and helpful to us. We had some mail and deliveries that went awry because the address posted in Active Captain was incorrect. (correct street is 5971 Black Marlin Dr.) This beautiful facility is geared to larger power boats, not so much toward sailors.

Nice facility along the Caloosahatchee, 2012-12-13
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (1476)

We stayed for two nights with a club cruise, very nice facility. We were given transient slips along the north side of the facility, near the shops & restaurants. There aren't many shops open at this point, but the hotel is about to become a Westin and there are high hopes that the traffic will pick up and more shops will open. The restrooms were nice and quite clean, and we were allowed to use the marina office's deck to host happy hours. We ate at Marker 92, the restaurant, and found it hit or miss, depending on the entree ordered. Some meals were very good, others missed the mark completely - again, we're hoping that with Westin moving in the restaurant will up its game. The only inconvenience was that boaters are requested to use the garden condo's pool (not the high-rise condos' pool) which is a short walk outside the waterfront facility; it'd be nice if the marina and the hotel could work out a cooperative arrangement so that boaters could use the hotel pool.

Great Stop, 2012-08-20
Captain: , Bradenton, Florida (74)

We just spent two nights at the Marina/Resort and were very impressed, particularly with the staff who were all very pleasant and helpfu. Because we booked our stay via the internet, upon our arrival we received gift cards valued at $14.00 each for breakfasts for both days which were more than enough to cover the costs of two of us. We had an excellant dinner at the Market 92 Restaurant on our second night.

The only thing I found disappointing was the condition of the planks on the gangways. Many of the planks were in poor condition and splintering. While being replaced, the work is going slowly and one needs keep a watchful eye and wear shoes. All in al, however, we were very pleased with the facilities.

Easy in and out from the Caloosahatchee River, 2012-01-19
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (334)

This is a nice marina and easy in and out for fuel from the River. Deep draft. There are two nice restaurants Marker 92 and the Nauti Mermaid.

Peace of Mind, 2011-07-11
Captain: , Terra Ceia Bay, Florida (60)

This was our half way point in transit from Stuart to Tampa through the "ditch". We originated in stuart and left our sailboat here for three weeks before we could come back and finish the trip to Tampa. Great dock service, good food, spotless bathroom facilities and wonderful staff. I would certainly revisit and recommend

Great Marina, Fantastic Service, Perfect Location, 2011-03-31
Captain: , St Thomas, US Virgin Islands (404)

This marina is 5 stars all the way baby! Great location, excellent service, wonderful restaurant with fantastic food and a super tiki bar overlooking your boat at the marina. $2 per foot includes electric and all amenities.

New and still learning, 2010-01-22
Captain: , Cape Coral, FL (495)

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. Beware of ther $15. per night Resort Fee. The marina facilities are nice and the hotel has a very nice restaurant and bar. The staff is still learning, but they are trying hard. Meals were good but on the higher end, drinks also a little high but very nice atmosphere.

Marina at Tarpon Point, 2010-01-05
Captain: , ft myers beach (790)

We just spent two nights here at the docks near the new restaraunt "Market 92." Great facility in regards to docks, amenities and more. New hotel pool open for boaters. We intend to be there for New Years Eve again.

Under Construction, 2007-06-17
Captain: , Cape Coral, Fl. (10)

This marina has a helpful staff however the adjacent facilities are in the construction stage and there are limited facilities for boaters, also lots of dirt and dust from the construction. Fuel prices are high!
