C-Quarters is one of two marinas in Carrabelle, which cruisers can patronize with confidence, The other is the Moorings at Carrabelle, which is found upstream of C-Quarters.
Carrabelle is, of course, the perfect port of call to wait for good weather before making the jump across the waterwayless Big Bend region of Florida, shooting for Anclote Key or Clearwater.
We also had one of our best stays at C-Quarters about a month ago. The slips were a little shallow, but they made sure we were in one that was deep enough. And the seafood store was wonderful! And there was always a gathering every night at the marina.

For those of you who are nearing your Gulf crossing, be sure to look at C-Quarters. While The Moorings has more amenities perhaps (cable and wifi), you can’t beat the prices for both dockage and fuel, especially if you need to spend longer than a couple days. Capt’n Kim is there to help and is a delight to visit with. They have showers and laundry, but no pumpout. You can walk a block to the library for their open WIFI. Diesel price was $2.80 a week ago at C-Quarters. Both the Moorings and C-Quarters are equal distance to the cross the street IGA and hardware store.
Be sure to make the trip to Millenders Seafood. Great local seafood prices.We bought a half bag (~5gallon bucket) of fresh raw oysters and had a grilling party at the dock. What we didn’t use, we kept in the burlap bag and put back into the salt water for a couple days till the next feeding a couple days later.

I absolutely agree with everything said here about C-Quarters, Kim and everyone else that helped us during our 4 day stay. The crew and the local towns folk made us feel like we’d been a part of their sweet little town for years! Be sure to bow into any slip there but know that you are safe and among friends.
Just wanted to update we have pumpout working for a few weeks now and cable at the slips at the office. Thanx knot home for a super review! Happy holidays all!

Just to comment on the updated diesel price is currently 2.95. We also have non-ethanol mid grade gas at 3.10
Happy holidays all!
