Fort Pierce City Marina (Statute Mile 965) – Transportation Solutions

Posted by admin | Posted on 12-17-2008

 Fort Pierce City Marina 1 Avenue A, Ft. Pierce, FL 34950 Toll Free (800) 619-1780 (772) 464-1245 Facsimile (772) 464-2589Below, Captain Jim gives us all some great advice on how to obtain low cost, city transportation from Fort Pierce City Marina, to just about any sort of shopping you may require. Fort Pierce City Marina itself is a superior facility in ever way, and is highly recommended by yours truly, And, of course, they are a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS NET SPONSOR!

Hello all:
t has been said that Ft. Pierce, FL City Marina (mm 965) is a great place to stay, but has poor transportation service for the boating community to shop and re-supply.
Palmetto Moon is in Ft Pierce, it is a great place, clean, great staff, 14 restaurants in a 4 block area, well protected, a BIG Farmers Market and arts/crafts tents every Saturday, 4 washers/dryers (1.00), and concerts in the park adjacent to the marina.
Su and I have unraveled the bus issues. There are 2 types of transportation services offered:
1. A scheduled route, Treasure Coast Connector,  that runs North and South on US 1, appox. every 30 min. However these stops are 4 blocks from the marinas. So if you do full shopping/re-provisioning the schlepping becomes a huge task.
2. The Community Transit System. A true door-to-door route (no set route) that you must make reservations for pick up. This service works very well for heavy shopping. But, takes appox. 3.5 – 4 hours to complete your round trip. This service is more complicated to use,  as you must register in advance of your shopping plans and then call 24 hours before, to schedule a pick-up. This service is not one that can be utilized on the day of arrival without registering in advance. To register before arrival call 772-464-7433. This system uses computer routing,  the exact address is required both for pick-up and destination. To get around this we go to the office, get the add. then make the call.
Downside issues:
A. If the bus is crowded they can limit the carry-ons to 4 bags per person
B. Pick-up time is sometime after 8 AM (remember no set route) normally around 8:30 – 8:45 and continues to pick-up and drop-off until your stop.
C. If Wal-Mart is your destination add 1.5 – 2 hours to your trip.
D. Normal shopping to Wal-Mart (Tues.) and Publix (Thurs.)

Fort Pierce City Marina (Statute Mile 966.5) – GREAT Restaurant Nearby

 Fort Pierce City Marina 1 Avenue A, Ft. Pierce, FL 34950 Toll Free (800) 619-1780 (772) 464-1245 Facsimile (772) 464-2589Fort Pierce City Marina is already a superb muncipal marina, and a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR! Now, below we hear that there’s a really wonderful place to satisfy a healthy appetite nearby. What could be better!

Subject: Harbor Cove Restaurant – Ft Pierce
Cruising News: Fabulous Restaurant alert!  We were at Harbor Town Marina in Ft Pierce last night and the restaurant there, Harbor Cove Restaurant was a true and wonderful surprise.  We had “dirty Oysters” to start which were fresh and large raw oysters topped with sour cream, caviar and onions.  The oysters were fresh and truly incredible.  Prime Rib was the special which was so good that this morning I am kicking myself for not getting a portion to take home for lunch today. (take THAT Coinjock!) And the Mussels with pasta were some of the best mussels I\’ve had outside of Maine.   All of this, 2 beers and a drink for $55. 
Friendly and helpful staff, and locals were terrific.
And as far as the marina goes, also terrific.  Grounds are beautifully maintained, loaner bikes, they will arrange for Enterprise…very helpful in every way.  Electric was good, docks well maintained. 
This is an absolute must stop for us on our commute up and down the coast.

My wife and I have always enjoyed staying at the Fort Pierce City Marina when ever we traveled up or down the east coast. It’s right in the down town area and the city seems to always have something going on on the week ends. Don’t know what the rates are now but they were the best in the area. Nice showers and laundry rooms and great restaurants right at the docks shopping near by.

Cook Point – Fort Pierce Anchorage (Statute Mile 964.5)

Posted by admin | Posted on 11-17-2008

The entrance to the anchorage described by Captains John and Sue below, cuts east, immediately north of the North Fort Pierce bascule bridge. Personally, I would not want to take a vessel larger than 45 feet into this channel.

Subject: Anchorage-Cook Pt./Ft. Pierce
Cruising News: Anchored up cut adjacent to north side of Cook Pt./Ft. Pierce, went in 1/4 mile beyond low bridge on south side of cut to beyond the Idle Speed/No Wake sign. Plenty of water on south side of cut.  A little skinny for the first 1/10th mile.  Good protection w/a bonus of a fair view of the Nov. 14 Endeavor launch.
