High Praise for Marina at Hammock Beach, AICW Statute Mile 802

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 09-12-2012

The Marina at Hammock Beach flanks the eastern banks of the Waterway immediately north of the Palm Coast Parkway high-rise bridge.

This is a HIDDEN GEM on the ICW that is (relatively) unknown. First class marina (Bellingham floating docks) that is part of full-blown golf & beach resort (with free transportation between marina & beach/golf resort that is 2 miles away).
Great stop if you are a family (beach, multiple pool complexes with water slides, kids activities program, etc) or golfer (2 superior 18 hole courses – Ocean course & Conservatory course). Several restaurants at the beach resort, too.
Not your typical ICW marina, but if you are looking for a few days to ‘get off the boat’ and enjoy a beach & golf resort this is about the best (and only?) you’ll find on the east coast of Florida.
Marina staff – Neil and Suzanne are very friendly and accommodating.

Great Time at Marineland Marina! AICW Statute Mile 796

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 05-08-2012

 The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.Marineland Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, lies south – southeast of AICW marker #87, along the Waterway’s eastern shore. This marina had been closed for many years, but just recently reopened. While there are not yet any nearby restaurants or good provisioning possibilities (though these are planned for the future), the new incarnation of Marineland Marina IS already another excellent stop for cruisers plying the AICW between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach and is setting the standard for how cruisers should be treated!

Cruising News:
We left Jacksonville eager to get to Marineland Marina after all the great reviews on Cruisersnet. After dealing with a small mechanical issue, I hailed Eric at Marineland to let him know we were running late. His response was, “no problem, safe travels”. This is Friday evening near closing time, no less. Long story short, we made it safely and Eric provided outstanding service all weekend. A 20,000 acre estuary across the ICW, UF Marine Science facilities on site featuring a crystal clear ocean species “pond”, a beautiful, secluded beach across the street, and clean, uncrowded facilities are just a few of the highlights. Back at work now but can’t wait to go back!
Mitch

Welcome JT’s Lunch Shack to the Town of Marineland……located just across the street from the marina!
A fantastic and affordable menu that includes sandwiches, wraps, beer and wine, etc. right next to the beach and the Marineland Dolphin Adventure!
Just a short walk from the Town of Marineland Marina!
Open from 10:00AM to 4:00PM daily.

We just left our Pearson 424 “MOJO” at Marineland for a month while I came back to our yacht brokerage to catch up on things. Chris and his staff can’t do enough for you. The facilities are absolutely spotless. Enterprise will bring you a rental car and St. Augustine is just a short drive if you want to do the tourist thing. Great uncrowded beach just across the street. Fantastic dockage rates. This will be a regular stop for us!

Report From Loggerhead Club & Marina, Daytona Beach, AICW Statute Mile 830

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 04-07-2012

Loggerhead Club and Marina of Daytona Beach lies off the western banks of the ICW/Halifax River, south of unlighted daybeacon #32.

We recently stayed at Loggerhead. The finger piers are long enough for us to take our 32 footer bow-in and still be able to step off the boat from the cockpit area. The 30 amp was available but ours was in use by our neighbor who plugged into his and ours too. They had no 50-30 adapters but we managed to stretch our cord to a vacant slip nearby.
The restaurant is lively and the burger was good. The pool and hot tub are supposed to close at dusk but the dockmaster admitted that the evening guard might turn a blind eye (or be sleeping in his truck).
We walked to a Sunoco station where we could buy some sundry items. I couldn’t find another convenience store and the locals didn’t know of any other nearby either.
There are no other restaurants or shopping areas nearby. On our last visit to Daytona, we stayed at Halifax where we had more stores to visit.

More Good Words About Marineland Marina (Statute Mile 796)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 03-29-2012

 The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.Newly reopened Marineland Marina, south of St. Augustine, and north of Daytona Beach, located directly on the AICW, has been racking up impressive reviews here on the Cruisers’ Net for the past several months. Well, of course, these good people are a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!

This nice stop about 35 miles north of Daytona and 20 miles south of St. Augustine was reopened during this past year with all new docks and facilities. The beach on the Atlantic is just across the road as is the Marineland Dolphin aquarium. There are hiking trails and eco tours on kayaks. Dockage is only $1 / ft and there is a 50% discount on electric with Boat US. And the laundry and pump outs are free !!!! There is no fuel and no stores nearby, but if you enjoy being removed from it all and like nature, this is a great stop, with floating docks and 22 transient slips.

Marineland is a magical place! We draw 6ft and have no problem. The heads are spotless. Free laundry. Free WiFi. You can hear the ocean from the boat at night. If you need a ride, the staff will loan you their car. The price is right. Lots to do if you like nature, exploring by dingy or kayak or time at the beach.
Patty D

We stopped for a day and stayed 5 weeks! The marina facilities are always clean, the staff is cheerful and knowledgeable, whether you are tying up in a cross breeze, or taking a Ripple Effect Kayak tour into the hammock across the ICW. The ocean and new Marineland right across the street make your stay really enjoyable. Great rates, free laundry and pump-out, and a courtesy car are also available. Come one, come all! We loved it.

Great Stay at Marineland Marina (Statute Mile 796)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 01-26-2012

 The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.What a GREAT posting about our newest SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR! And, oh yes, I was just here a few weeks ago myself, and I agree completely with Captains Pilon and Salette!

MARINELAND MARINA
I arrived at Marineland Marina a month ago for what I thought would be few days. Why? What happened to my migration south? Maybe I should not tell you this ; I worry you all make this change…
I tell you this as it comes to my mind, no particular order, nor by importance:
- It is clean, perfectly clean.
- It is new, brand new marina
- Prices are VERY affordable. In fact, on a monthly basis, it is MUCH cheaper than moorings you will find in St-Augustine, even for bigger boats.
- Free (yes as in 0.00$) laundry
- Staff is great. They all go further than expected to make sure you like Marineland Marina. I know first hand.
- Marineland Marina is across the A1A road to a beach, large, miles long, and super quiet. I go there everyday for a walk and most of the days I am alone / or we are 3 or 4. In fact on this few miles beach stretch the most people I saw were 6!!! This is rare in Florida, rare in USA, just rare everywhere.
- A1A route is super quiet here. Except Marineland and few houses for rent, there is not much around
- Bike path on this A1A stretch (5 miles north, 5 miles south) is very wide and secure and quiet!
- Many parks and reserves at walking distance
Other info:
- The Publix is about 4 miles away
- Many restaurants deliver to Marineland Marina
- You can visit Marineland, the other side of the street
- They organise kayak tours, right here at the marina
- Nice restaurant / bars at bicycle distance
- Be sure to mention to Chris the draft of your boat. Most slips are more than 6 feet but some (3 or 4 slips) have less than 5 feet mlw.
- They have nice floating docks for transients.
- Pet friendly marina
How come it is not more known? I think because Marineland Marina has been abandoned for 10 years until they completely rebuilt it 6 month ago / most of cruising guides you have on board are out-dated…
Marc Pilon and Andrée Salette
Sv Ma Muse, still at Marineland Marina for few more weeks

Just wanted to echo everything Marc and andree said, marineland marina is a great facility, we too dropped in for a day or 2 and are now staying a month. The beach is beautiful and this stretch of the ICW is unspoiled and borders a huge nature reserve with many creeks to explore by dinghy and plenty of wildlife to see.
Can’t recommend it enough.

While there are not yet any nearby restaurants or good provisioning possibilities, the new incarnation of Marineland Marina will be another excellent stop for cruisers plying the AICW between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach.

what a gem – stay if you can! it is inexpensive ($1/f,t,) peaceful, beautiful, alive with wildlife, across A1A from the beach and the Marineland dolphin research facility. Super dockmaster, Chris Kelly, is helpful, friendly, and knowlegeable. if you like wild and peaceful surroundings, with up to date facilities, do NOT miss the opportunity to stay at Marineland Marina.
Jane Hanson

We planned to stay one night and ended up staying a week. This is not a place for provisions but has a lot to offer. There is the Marine Land dolphin rehab across the street and a nature trail just south. You can hear the surf from your boat, walk the beach. Nice docks but shallow at low tide. Chris is a great harbor master. Peaceful and pleasant. We will be back.

Echo the comments 10/15/11. Stayed for one night, left St. Augustine headed south and arrived about noon. Enjoyed the marine center, had a personal tour of the facilities at Marineland, it was not crowded. Got some great pictures of Dolphin training, jumping etc.
WiFi did not work on boat without an external stick where we were put. Walked back trails and across A1A where there is a nice beachfront park. We intend on stopping for a week on our way back north for the beach in the spring. With the hatch open, the sound of the surf put me to sleep.

Recommended Anchorage at AICW Statute Mile 809, Flagler Beach, FL

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 12-06-2011

The anchorage Will recommends is on the west side of the Waterway just north of Flagler Beach, FL,
We used to list the anchorage described below, but took it out of our Eastern Florida Anchorage Directory some years ago, due to all the traffic associated with the below described Sea Ray plant. Also, for a time the “concrete plan” reopened, but now it appears to have closed again.
Anyway, looks like Will and Cheryl found a good spot to anchor upstream of the Sea Ray facility.

Thanks for getting back to us Larry. BTW we also wanted to recommend an anchorage by mile 809, a canal off the ICW at an abandoned cement plant. It’s not on the roster though for us to make comments on.
Best wishes,
Will & Cheryl aboard s/v Varua – Westsail 42

The anchorage is an inlet created evidently for a cement plan, now closed. It is between markers G11 and G13 west off the ICW. On our overnight stay on 12/4/2011, we founds depths of 6.5-8.5 feet at the entrance, staying close to the South side as advised by a fellow cruiser. past the entrance, there are homes with private docks on the left. trees on the right. Depths increase to 10-12 feet toward the end, past a Sea Ray plant. The tide changes less than two feet in this “cul-de-sac.” No real shore visit opportunity. Bottom is very sticky black mud. The Sea Ray plant starts to make factory noises early in morning. Otherwise a very quiet, protected anchorage.

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 11-22-2011

Crescent Beach Bridge crosses the ICW at Statute Mile 789, southeast of flashing daybeacon #58.

We had a great experience with the bridge captain operating this bridge on November 21, 2011. We had monitored VHF channel 9 since clearing Bridge of Lions, and his greetings and conversations with all southbound vessels were courteous, professional, and friendly.
This is an open on demand bridge and his timing was perfect, every time, resulting in a seamless transit of the bridge.
We believe this bridge captain is a prime candidate to be presented to the Florida Tourism Board as State Employee of the Year. He certainly is the happiest bridge captain on the ICW.

Good Words for Marineland Marina, AICW Statute Mile 796

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 10-14-2011

Marineland Marina lies south – southeast of AICW marker #87, along the Waterway’s eastern shore. This marina has been closed for many years now, but had just recently reopened. While there are not yet any nearby restaurants or good provisioning possibilities, the new incarnation of Marineland Marina will be another excellent stop for cruisers plying the AICW between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach.

We just want to let those of you passing through northern Florida know about a new marina which we stayed at last night.
We’ve been passing Marineland at mile 795 for years (by boat and car) and always wondered if the basin there would ever open as a marina; we were told by a cashier at the newly-opened Marineland Education Center (the dolphin, etc, display) a couple of years ago that it wasn’t going to ever open as a marina.
Well, all that changed this past August when the Marineland Marina opened with all new facilities, a long floating concrete dock, fixed docks, heads, free laundry and free Wifi. 30 amps shore power was $3.00 with a Boat/US discount (show your membership card).
The beautiful beach and Marineland is a short walk across route A1A. The GEORGIA aquarium is involved in the education center and kayak tours originate from the marina.
We stayed only overnight as we are on the way home to Merritt Island, but if you don’t live in the area you should consider staying long enough to visit the Marineland Education Center (see the new dolphin calf).
The cost is extremely reasonable, but there are no commercial restaurants, etc, within walking distance. It is, however, a beautiful, quiet spot in a sell protected basin immediately off the ICW.
The dockmaster, Chris, is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and birdlife.

Incorrect Charted Height at Broadway Bridge, Daytona Beach, Statute Mile 830.5, 5/13/11

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 05-13-2011

Cruisers’ Net Bridge Directory has this bridge listed as 62ft and care needs to be taken at high tide as Almost Heaven relates below. The Broadway Bridge (E International Speedway Blvd) crosses the ICW at Statute Mile 830.5, south-southeast of unlighted daybeacons #33 and #34.

This Bridge is 62′! on a high tide we would not clear this bridge.(63.5 + Antennas) The Markers on the bridge clearly showed 63′ with the tide down 1 foot. Please consider the tide range when passing under the Broadway Bridge. The chart is INCORRECT as it shows 65′.
Almost Heaven

This bridge needs a proper clearance board. ie: measurement. I crept under this spring with the board reading 63. My antenna usually hits at a 64 reading. Antenna did not hit.
Skipper Paul Eckenroth

Our mast height is also 63.5′ + antennas, we passed under this bridge @ 8pm Sunday May 13th, 2012. The Bridge clearance guage showed 62′ but as we had previously cleared this bridge in the fall we gave it a very slow go weaving between the nav light. As far as we could tell not even our antenna touched (unlinke many other bridges on the AICW) which means there is at least 66+’ in the middle of the span.

Loggerhead Club & Marina – Daytona Beach (Statute Mile 830)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 03-24-2011

Below, Captain Judy Klawe gives us a good description of the Daytona Beach iteration of Loggerhead Marinas. It’s interesting that this facility does accept cruisers for long term/live-aboard stays, but many Loggerhead Marinas seem not to offer the same service (see below).

Don’t want to start a whole big thing again, but…. We are at Halifax Harbor Marina, yesterday we took our Whaler over to Loggerhead just south of Marker 32 and had lunch at Caribbean Jack’s. After lunch I went in to the office and spoke to the Dockmaster. I inquired about the live aboard situation. I told her we had called several Loggerhead Marinas on our trip south and none would accept live aboards. She told me that each Loggerhead Marina is a separate entity a few do allow live aboards but most do not. They do here in Daytona. They charge a $50 per month live aboard fee, $65 a month for 30 amp and $85 a month for 50 amp. $8 per foot for boats up to 46 feet and $9.50 for boats over 46 feet. Those are their annual fees. If you just want to stay seasonal (min of 5 months) it is the same for electric and live aboard fee but the rate is $9.50 up to 46 and $11.00 for over 46 feet. They have a small swimming pool and you get 10% off at Caribbean Jacks restaurant. I did not inspect the laundry or bath houses, but the place looked very well kept. Dockmaster also told me that if you decide to visit another Loggerhead while at their marina, like further south, for a week or two, they pay the dock fee and
you just pay your electric. Oh yeah, they provide cable and of course water. Wifi you would have to pay for separate. So that is the scoop from
Daytona Beach.

High Praise for Hammock Beach Resort – Marina at Yacht Harbor Village, AICW Statute Mile 802

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 11-30-2010

Hammock Beach Resort Marina flanks the eastern banks of the AICW immediately north of the Palm Coast Parkway high-rise bridge in Palm Coast, FL.

We stayed here over the long Thanksgiving weekend; checked in on Wednesday the 24th and out on Saturday the 27th. Paid $2.60/foot, including service charge and Florida tax, and were BLOWN AWAY by the place. For that price, you get a great spot at top of the line floating docks, excellent service (from Suzanne and Neil), the most beautiful shower/bathroom facility we have ever seen, a gorgeous pool on the marina side, free pump-out, AND full access to the resort amenities. You can use the resort pools and beach – towels provided – by using the (no extra charge) 24X7 shuttle service; you can dine at any of several restaurants, all very good, at several price points. Not a “bargain” spot, but worth every penny of the charge if you are looking for a little slice of paradise from the comfort of your very own boat.
