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 has been called “a magical place” by recent cruisers.
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!
