It was an easy run from New Smyrna Beach to Adventure Yacht Harbor. I called Ben, Assistant Harbormaster, and told him we’d need fuel and a slip for the night. We were there soon after noon. Coming in to the fuel dock in the very narrow channel, we were met by a small runabout coming out who insisted on his right to the middle of the channel. We ran aground, again. Twice in two days. However, we backed off again as soon as the runabout had vacated the channel and continued on to the fuel dock, where Ben was waiting, but the new owner’s wife was waving frantically from the shore to warn us off. We’d been in before, and knew where the shallow water was, so we ignored her. After we refueled and registered, we took the long dock (use to be the fuel dock, apparently) where it was an easy in and out, and we were a short dock-walk away from Boondocks, where we planned to celebrate Malla’s birthday.

We had to wait for seating, but it was a pleasant evening. When they were ready for us our little beeper sounded. We were shown to a waterside table overlooking the fish-feeding area ($.25 in a coin machine for fish food for the kids) where the catfish and the seabirds hang out for their free lunch. The catfish don’t seem to be intimidated by the pelicans, and fish and bird challenge each other for what is thrown to them. We learned that pelican’s reject french fries, but the fish gobble them up. It wasn’t our french fries, BTW, but those from the next table.

We have become regulars at this out of the way marina with its rickety docks and funky restaurant known as Adventure Yacht Harbor. We had become friends with Jim Boren who has been nursing the marina through
bankruptcy. This is another hard to get into marina, but we like it. Jim reported that the marina has new owners, so things are expected to improve.
We’ve mentioned Boondocks Restaurant before, and it is at least half the reason we like to stop here. Where else can one find a restaurant and bar (wine and beer only) in a marina parking lot under a tent? The food
is good, too, and reasonably priced. One hears boat talk around the bar, and the dining room (for want of a better name) has both conventional tables for four along the walls and long picnic tables in the center where diners mingle. The staff is cheerful, friendly, efficient, and each appears to be enjoying her job. When someone leaves a generous tip, the waitress rings a bell. Signs permit smoking only when the tent flaps are rolled up (they were not this time because it was winter and the space heaters were on). Last spring (tent flaps up) kids were along the outside walkway feeding french fries to the fish, who gobbled them up. I told the woman bartender that this was the funkiest restaurant on the ICW assuring her that this was a compliment. I challenged her to name a another restaurant in a tent on a marina parking lot. She thought about it for a long time, and could not come up with anything like it. “And we’re bikers”, she said. “We see lots of places.”

I am currently at the “Adventure Yacht Harbor”, Port Orange FL. It is just south of the Dunlawton bridge. Small marina, but clean, helpful and friendly. Boondocks resturant is also located here. The harbormaster is Jim Boren. His number 386-756-2180. Rate for my 40′, and less than 6 months, is $10. Power for 30 amp $45, 50 amp $80. Also it is off the ICW in a nice little protected harbor.

We wanted to share with you our very positive experience at the Adventure Yacht Harbor. We found the facility and staff very accommodating, restrooms very clean, overall very tidy marina. Boondocks Restaurant on-site very good. Rates are the best in the Daytona Beach area. Jim Boren is the Harbormaster. Overall, tumbs up!
