Titusville anchorage near bridge and “Cracker Jacks Restaurant” – great anchorage – lousy restaurant. Been twice, place is always filthy and the staff could care less if you were there – they cater to the regulars. Food… skip it and drink bottled beverages. Not a clean place at ALL.

Water Can Be Costly At Melbourne Harbor Marine (Statute Mile 919)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 12-24-2013

 Now, here is an INTERESTING post from Captain Bill which recently appeared on the Cruisers’ Forum (http://www.cruisersforum.com), about the cost of filling one’s fresh water tank, IF you are anchored off, and come in to fuel and take on water at Melbourne Harbor Marina. This facility’s entrance channel cuts west, abeam of AICW marker #6, south of the Melbourne twin, high-rise bridges.
Bill’s criticism of the cost of fresh water at Melbourne Harbor Marine fostered quite a discussion on the Cruisers’ Forum (see http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/f2/anchor-outs-not-welcome-117433.html). Some thought the marina’s charges were justifed, others took a different point of view. The Salty Southeast Cruisers’ Net takes no editorial position on this question of cost, but we do think this is information that needs to be known in the cruising community!

I had an interesting first today. I went into the Melbourne Harbor Marina in Melbourne Florida for a pumpout, some water, and to dump some trash. I visit Melbourne every year for the month of December visiting relatives before continuing on to the Bahamas. In the past I have used the MHM because I have found it to be a friendly and easy place to and get a pumpout and water. In the past what I have done get two pumpout and two water fills during December while anchored out. Melbourne does not have a lot of marina options for Catamarans. Melbourne Harbor Marina cannot accommodate a Catamaran at all. When I’m ready to leave I have always filled my fuel tanks at MHM before heading south and that visit was well over $$300. In the past the pumpout was $10 and water and trash was free. The first time I was in this year the pumpout was still $10 and water and trash was $5. This was perfectly reasonable in my opinion. Water and trash service are not free to the marina and a reasonable charge is not a problem. Today when I went in there The pumpout was still $10 but he asked how much water I needed and I said 80 gallons. Which he said would be $20. I asked him why it was up from $5 only 10 days ago. He said it is what it is. When I pointed out I paid less than this for RO water in the bahamas he went off on a rant about “anchor outs” wanting all these services for free. I asked for absolutely nothing for free. In the Bahamas it costs quite a bit to make RO water from sea water so $.25 a gallon is reasonable. This guy pays .00433 cents a gallon for city water so 80 gallons cost him 32 cents. Five dollars for 32 cents worth of water is a pretty good profit in my opinion even if one includes the capital cost of running a pipe to the end of the dock. He pays a flat rate for a trash dumpster. A bag of trash does not change what he pays so anything he charges is money in his pocket. The city requires that he have the dumpster even if it’s not used.
Before I retired there was an old business rule about never being rude or nasty to a small customer because you never knew when they might become a big customer or how many big customers he had as friends. Today I was a small customer. The guy I dealt with identified himself as the owner. Needless to say I’ll find some where else to fill my tanks. Maybe $300-$400 worth of diesel is not worth his time, so be it. I don’t know why business owners act like this, do they think cruisers don’t talk to other cruisers? This was the first time I had ever been treated so rudely by a Marina. I might not have been so offended if he did not go off on me for not buying a service he didn’t offer (dockage for my Cat).

Suggest y’all stop at Telemar Bay Marina just North of the Eau Galle bridge and Dragon Point. Very friendly! Plenty of room for cats even 42v footers.

Winds from the northeast are the worst, but expect a very wet ride to the marina if there is any wind because if your moored you are atleast 1/4 mile from the dock/shore. The monthly rates are currently 165$ month, but if stopping for the night make sure to go north of the field (1 mile dinghy to marina) and drop anchor. Hope your dinghy motor starts.

Van Service at Titusville Municipal Marina, AICW Statute Mile 879

I don’t see any mention of the van service the marina now offers. A van will take you to Publix or other shopping destinations for free – just sign up for a morning or afternoon run. Even better, for $30 per van load (up to 11 people) the van will run you out to the Kennedy Space Visitors Center at 9:30 AM and pick you up at 4:30 PM (this saves car rental or taxi and parking charges). Divided among those going, the cost is cheap. Kudos to Titusville for this service!

This is not a great place in a Norther . We were working on our boat in Westland Marina and on the morning of the 13th of Nov saw that 3 sailboats had been blown ashore and the rest on the moorings and in the anchorage were having a wild time of riding the storm . So if you have to be in Titusville, when a Norther is forecast, anchoring is not a good idea; picking up a mooring is safer, but the The Westland Marina would be your best choice for comfort since even the Municipal Marina can be a bit rolly facing the channel entrance.

This report and photos came to us from Captains Mo and Mike.

We just cruised down from Ponce on the ICW – nice easy cruise (sans some giant powerboats that were kind enough to share giant wakes with us, then proceed to stop in the middle of the ICW at the turn, then cut in front of us at the bascule bridge!)
Ok, enough venting. We traveled on to Titusville and after reading info here and on another site, we learned that the anchorage now has a mooring field HOWEVER, you can anchor North of the mooring field if you draw around 4″6″ as we do. I suspect some boats here draw more. At low tide (.8) we had 5.5″ or better.
We just felt our way in and found a nice spot. A tad bumpy in a blow – it’s NNE about 15 today and bumpy but not uncomfortable. You’ll get damp on the way back out however…
It’s a bit of a dinghy ride to the marina and about 1/4 mile walk to the little grocery store which was very clean but limited selection.
Restaurant under the bridge is Crackerjacks and the fish tacos were great! Monday night is Trivia night – good crowd and very friendly staff. Enjoy – anchor and save your $15/20 [mooring fee] for your cocktails! :-)

The Titusville moorings are sitting in the middle of the river and it can get pretty rough when the winds blow from almost any direction. That makes it pretty tough to get in and out of a dinghy and makes for a very wet ride to shore.

Report from Cocoa Mooring Field/Anchorage, AICW Statute Mile 897

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 10-08-2013

Cocoa Mooring Field - Click for Chartview

This report copied from Cruisers Forum, http://www.cruisersforum.com/, describes the Cocoa mooring field as located on the southwest corner of the Cocoa Twin Bridges. In the past, cruisers could drop the hook on these waters (see link below), but the availability of anchoring here is uncertain with the establishment of the mooring field.

Check out the city mooring area in Cocoa, Fl……very inexpensive, dinghy dock, 1 1/2 blocks to cafes, bars, and music. Close enough to food stores and a great old hardware store(Travis Hardware) for boats also 1 1/2 blocks away from dinghy dock. Look up area on Indian River at Cocoa on SW side of Hiway 320 Bridge. Google map shows boats moored in that area. A lot of snow birds use it in the winter as well as full time liveaboards year round. Fairly well protected from winter northerlys but open to south and east winds(usually mild). Unfortunately no protection if a darn hurricane comes through. But is you plan on staying a portion of the winter a great little place to be. Heck you can even see the launches from Kennedy Space Center from your cockpit

Good Words for Melbourne Harbor Marina, and A WONDERFUL Nearby Restaurant (Statute Mile 919)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 09-18-2013

 Melbourne Harbor Marina features a well sheltered harbor, and it’s within a very quick step of the community’s downtown business district. I have not heard of “The Mansion” restaurant (see below) before, but you can bet we’ll be checking it out the next time our bow finds its way to this facility!

The admiral found a quaint British shop in downtown Melbourne on the Internet and made the decision for us to stop in Melbourne, FL. We found the harbor marina to be a great location within walking distance to the downtown area.
We found several unique shops including a homemade soap store, but the real highlight was a new restaurant called The Mansion! It has been recently remodeled, is clean, great food (from sandwiches to steaks) and it has a wine market and liquor store within a block of the marina.
The best part for me, was the 73 craft beers on tap and available on the shelf to purchase and bring back to the boat.
Dean & Beth are the owners, 1218 East New Haven Ave is the address. Hope you like it as much as we did.

Fascinating “Antique Shop” Within Walking Distance of Titusville Harbor, AICW Statute Mile 879

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 07-03-2013

Westland Marina is located on the Intracoastal Waterway in Titusville, Florida. Near Cape Canaveral, Port Canaveral, Merritt Island and Cocoa BeachFor a small to medium sized Florida municipality, Titusville has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to excellent marina facilities, particularly including SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Westland Marina.
Once the lines are coiled, take a stroll to the “antique shop,” described by Captain Sonny below. It sounds absolutely fascinating!

I have docked at the marina many times on trips to the Keys or Bahamas and it is always first class. There is a special place you may not know about. Up the main street there is an antique shop that is run by a retired Air Force gentleman. It is his Dad’s garage with all the old tools and equipment from before WW2. He is an interesting character and worth the visit. The shop is full of antiques that were his Dad’s and not for sale. My problem was I knew what each tool does and how to use them:)
On up the street (south) is a sandwich shop that makes a good Ruben. Nice place with a park next to the marina.

I anchored there, nowhere near any moorings then noticed all the yellow markers out to the channel and to the bridge. There seems to be no moorings in most of the marked area. Can they tell us we cant anchor in a marked mooring area if there are no moorings near you. I called the marina to ask and was told I could not anchor there because its a mooring field. When I mentioned that there were no moorings they said there was seagrass. Is this there latest trick.
Mike

Thank you for posting my comment here. If they can make a mooring field with no moorings and tell you not to anchor here, they might do it elsewhere. I understand that Titusville may be installing more moorings in the future but until then they should not be able to restrict anchoring if you are not near there existing moorings. I anchored right in the middle of the marked field and was no where near a moored boat.

Paradise Yacht SalesThe marina review below is excerpted from Captains Mike and Mary Dicken’s, owners of SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Paradise Yachts, web blog. These various accounts are recorded when this well-oiled nautical team helps new boat owners deliver their recently purchased craft to home port, or undertake yacht deliveries themselves for the same purpose. Wow, talk about service AFTER the sale – it doesn’t get any better than this. You will be seeing LOTS of excerpts from Captains Mike and Mary’s web blog here on the SSECN. This is superb info, and we are glad to have it available to our readers.
The particular collection of blog entries from which the article below is excerpted is an account of a cruise from Fort Lauderdale, FL to Fernandina Beach, FL, assisting the buyers of a 42′ Novatec used trawler.

For a small to medium sized Florida municipality, Titusville has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to excellent marina facilities. On the southern side of the city’s well sheltered harbor, cruisers will discover SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Westland Marina (http://www.westlandmarina.com). This superb operation has one of the best cruisers’ lounges I have ever reviewed, plus everyone associated with this enterprise rates our “super friendly” check mark.
Captains Mary and Mike, and their new owners, chose to berth at Titusville Municipal Marina. This is one of the best, medium-sized city owned and managed marinas in the Southeast. Both marinas are within easy walking distance of each other.

The third day we docked at Titusville Municipal Marina, mile marker 878.3 . Water depths were 6 feet plus along side fixed docks. Dozier’s Cruising Guide reports floating docks but that is incorrect. There is a nice ships store on premises. The baths were clean.
The four of us walked to a grocery store to re-provision and from there Mike and I took a taxi to ABC Liquors to re-provision. Dozier’s also reports shopping and a liquor store within walking distances; that to is incorrect. But a 10 minute cab ride will get you there.
Got back to the boat and took the rest of the day off. It was fun visiting with our customers/friends and learning more about them. We had grilled chicken, quinoa and a salad for dinner. Life is good!

Titusville Municipal Marina - Click for Chartview

Located south-southeast of AICW marker #27, Titusville Municipal Marina is one of the best medium-sized, municpal marinas on the Eastern Florida coastline.

Stayed a night mid May 2013, as we did a couple of years back, and it was still as good as we remembered. The facilities might be a little dated, but are well maintained and are spotlessly clean. There is good access to town and shops, well within walking distance, and public transport if you don’t care to walk.
We were initially unhappy with the floating dock assigned to us, so they immediately accommodated our wish and moved us to a fixed dock.
Good ships store and good fuel dock. Great staff. Easy in and out from the ICW. Maybe not many frills and fancy’s but a good, solid, safe, well-run marina.
