Reviews for Tierra Verde Marina
Very Basic Facility, 2015-02-14
Captain: , Port Whitby Ontario (20)

We tied up here for a couple of nights on our way south towards Sarasota. It is cheap and easily accessible from the channel. we were able to obtain a few needed pieces of equipment from a hardware store that is almost adjacent to the marina (literally a couple hundred feet). The hardware store manager is an experienced boater with a decent marine section; very friendly and helpful. As for the marina, well the girl who checked us in was friendly but required more information than I've ever had to provide for renting a slip for 2 nights: registration, ID, insurance. And all the services offered are a trailer with 3 toilets which are locked at 5:00 pm! It only has 50 amp electrical so be prepared with an adapter if you're running a 30 amp shore power cable like me.

The highlight of our stay was walking up to Billy's Stonecrab Seafood and Steak for an afternoon pint and snack. It was a location in John Candy's Summer Rental. Food was good and the atmosphere was fun.

What a current, 2014-07-15
Captain: , Gulfport (69)

it was getting late and we needed a place to stay. It was cheap an close to the inlet. That should have been my first clue. It is home to a very active small boat rental, large drystack, and land base for 2crew boats running out to the dredge. Unless you are interested in a challenge, come at slack tide. All in all it was fine and served the purpose, It would have been better if we did not arrive durring a ragging flood tide as all the rentals were coming in. The good news is plenty of provisioning. This was brought to our attention as we were docking when i noticed a USCG crew, each with a Slurppie, one saying "hey y'all, watch this guy" who had stopped in for National Slurppie Day

Stay away from this one, 2014-04-26
Captain: , Tierra Verde, Fl. (10)

Kept my sailboat here for a month in 2013. The docks are rough concrete with no protection for your topsides, which is a nightmare as you try to dock with the usually strong current from Pass-a-Grille channel and the chop from passing boats. I didn't find the staff particularly helpful. They seemed much more concerned with helping powerboats get in and out of dry storage. When I first docked, two of the three dock boys who eventually tried to help me had no idea how to tie up a boat. I threw them a line from the boat and they stared at it until it slid off the dock. Never again.

Nice safe marina., 2014-04-15
Captain: , Rosston, PA (100)

Ended up here by accident during extremely bad weather in the Bay. We were unable to reach our target marina. Staff was very attentive and helpful. Not much in the way of amenities, but we felt safe leaving the boat here for a few weeks while we went home for business. March 2014

Strong Currents Good Staff, 2013-10-28
Captain: , Grapevine Lake (30)

Other than the strong currents, it is a pleasant place with very helpful staff. We need the help to pull out of the slip for sure. There is an Italian restaurant, Marco's up the road that delivers to your slip and that is another plus.

Nice place to stay, 2013-07-19
Captain: , St. Petersburg, FL (195)

We stayed here 1 night 7/18/13, excellent stopping off point on our way from Clearwater to Sarasota; strong current at times; very friendly and helpful staff; very reasonable rates; take cab to good area restaurants; hardware store, provisions close by; quiet; not much to do but suited us well; easy access to Gulf; right next to Structure E

Horrible Current, 2011-05-01
Captain: , St. Petersburg (455)

Stay away from this place unless you have twin engines or a bow trhuster. It used to be okay for fuel when you did not have to go all the way in but right now the fuel dock is on the inside of the marina in a tight basin designed for rental boats.

Wicked current, 2010-11-13
Captain: , St. Petersburg, FL (537)

Kept sailboat here for about 4 weeks in 2004. The current would pin us to the dock except at slack tide. Mostly unprotected, except from the south, and the wind rarely blows from that direction. Since then, I know they rebuilt the docks so that you are no longer beam-on to the current, but it's still a rough marina to try to stay at. Constant vigilance for chafe.
