Overall, a very nice marina. There are tons of rules which mostly go unenforced. We used the hotel pool because it was closest. The pool for the marina was a goodly walk. We also ate at the hotel (good). One issue is there is no laundry and the bathroom/ showers may be a long walk, but would stay again. They did not say anything about Boat/US disount, but then I did not ask. The small deli is now closed so it is Publix 3.1 miles by bicycle.

Hi from Kismet:
Florida: Marina-Cape Coral
In Cape Coral, Florida a couple of miles up the Caloosahatchee River off the ICW is Tarpon Point Marina. We found this new, top rate marina convenient with shopping and a few restaurants on sight (Marker 92 was our choice) and for first time visitors who are BoatUS members the price is $1.50 per foot for the first night vs. their normal $2.00. The rate includes electric, water and a free pump out and a coupon for a free bottle of wine if you dine at Marker 92. Now that’s a good deal.
Safe Cruising.

Cruising News: We just spent the night at the Tarpon Point Marina in Coral Gables, at the beginning of the Okechobee crossing from west to east. This is a first class marina with a professional staff and full ameneties. The approach to this marina is 8\’ plus at MLW, which is important to us as we draw 6\’ which excludes us from a number of marina\’s on the ICW on the west coast of Florida. There is also a great anchorage just outside the marina with near 360 protection and room for at least a dozen vessels.
