Good Words About Port St. Joe Marina (off ICW between Apalachicola and Pan. City)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 12-06-2009

The Port St. Joe Marina is at the heart of Florida's Forgotten Coast, on the eastern shore of pristine St. Joseph Bay on Florida's northern Gulf Coast. Located between Panama City and Apalachicola, FlI can tell you from personal experience that Port St. Joe Marina is one of the finest pleasure craft facilities you will find anywere. They are reached by cruising from the Northern Gulf ICW, down the Gulf County Canal, to the waters of St. Joseph Bay. Then, it’s just a brief cruise to the east to reach the marina’s sheltered harbor.
Oh yes, and let’s not forget these good people are a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR!

Terrific folks and a great marina – close to everything, good restaurant, and some damn fine Marina Hosts (Ray & Patsy).
We were sad to leave this morning, but if a weather window opens up this weekend, we wanted to be a bit closer to take advantage and are now at WaterStreet Hotel & Marina in the rain and cold. Starting to think that we should have brought a snow shovel along to keep the dock clear.

Port St. Joe Marina promotes itself as the “friendliest marina on the gulf” and we have to agree. We are there now waiting to cross the gulf. At $1/foot nightly for AGLCA members (and less if you stay a week), they have all the usual amenities, including bikes and a restaurant. The downtown grocery, ice cream, restaurants, and hardware are just a few blocks away. Patsy and Ray Whitney, the harbor hosts, plus all the employees are ready to assist you with anything you need during your stay. During the 12/2 storm, Clara, the marina manager was walking the docks, checking lines and fenders. We’ve only been looping for a couple of months, but Port St. Joe is our #1 so far. It’s a little off the intercoastal, but well worth the effort. If you haven’t come this far yet, be sure to check it out.
