We kept our boat at Lamb’s Yacht Center on the Ortega river off the St. Johns just south of downtown Jacksonville. This is a well protected area and offers concrete covered storage and a very attentive dockmaster who lives on his boat there. We arrived in 2005 after the hurricanes of ’04 and after talking with other boaters decided that it was about the best protected in-water location we could find.

We are at Lambs Yacht Center in Jacksonville and in my opinion it is about as safe as it gets. Cement fixed piers, cement roof, excellent staff and great mechanics. Hear the airport and approved by our insurance company who said we had to be north of the Florida Georgia boarder during the hurricane season. Because they are 25-30 miles inland on the Ortega river and because they have a published hurricane plan, our insurance company approved us being in the Lambs Yacht Center without any up charge. William is the dock master and he is outstanding, his personal cell number is (904) 705-8199.

We kept our boat at Lambs Marina on the Ortega river (just off the St. Johns river, south of Jacksonville). It is definitely a hurricane hole with covered concrete docks. It is a little pricey, but our insurance rate stayed the same. Call William, he took very good care of us, 904-705-8199.

We used Lambs marina for our seasonal break. They have a concrete roof so very secure (reportedly was going to be a floor for a condo complex)

SEASEA is located at Lamb’s Yacht Center on the Ortega River just south of downtown Jacksonville, Fl. Lamb’s is offering new transient and longer term rates that anyone interested in coming in to the St. John’s river should be aware of. Call William Nicely (dockmaster) at Lamb’s and tell them SEASEA sent you.

We had very good service at a reasonable price at Lamb’s in Jacksonville, FL. After the work was done on our 44 footer, they even let us stay a few days at no cost.

We, too, have had work done at Lamb’s in 2007 and returned again this year for more work, recently completed to our satisfaction. This is very secure and pleasant marina and yard, within walking distance of one of the biggest used book stores we’ve ever seen, and also within walking distance of a pretty good shopping mall.
We heartily recommend them.

Lambs Marina is pretty good and they have buff & wax services. You can also stay at the free docks right downtown in Jax. We did and enjoy it, except when a fire boat went through the no wake zone there and waked everybody. It’s right downtown and an easy walk to lots of interesting things. It’s also lots of fun to go up the river from Jax. A fun side trip is to go to The Outback Crab Shack 2 days upriver, free doclk, etc., and very interesting to go through Murphy’s Creek behind Murphy Island on the river. It’s like a Disney Jungle Cruise.

I have been in Lambs on the Ortega River (just off St Johns). They are located near downtown and offer dockage as well as a boatyard. Their work and pricing have been very fair. Workman ship has been above average. They are about 20 minutes from airport and we use this marina/boatyard as a pick up location when cruising the ST John. Downing Nighingale is contact person.

Lambs is a first class facility. They have some of the best mechanics and repair facilities available in this area. Very protected location on the the Ortega River. This place gets my highest recommendation.
