Reviews for The Dock on the Bay
Shallow, old, no facilities, 2015-01-20
Captain: , Pensacola,Fl (80)

A long, narrow approach with very skinny water in the channel, and don't stray out of the channel by even the smallest bit or you will be aground. Turning around to get out of there is a challenge.



No No No. Anywhere but there., 2014-06-17
Captain: , Longboat Key FL (30)

No fuel, no pump out, No services. Not a real marina. I'm a local, been by it dozens of times by water and land. Notning close walking distance. Old wood docks. Must really watch channel markers from ICW at low tide. LBK Club Moorings and Marina Jack are nearby.



Don't even try it, 2010-03-29
Captain: , Howard Prairie (500)

We thought we would try this marina as it looked like an easy walk to the beach. Heather called and they said just go inside and tie up on the breakwater - right it was packed with boats no even room to turn around our 25 foot boat, backed out and headed elsewhere
