    This was a fun place to stop for a couple days and wait for weather to pass. They have a well-marked channel (although with a strong current), and spectacular floating concrete docks that were easy to tie up to. The marina has great bathrooms and laundry, but the location is even better. They have a huge Saturday morning farmers market where you can stock up any fresh groceries you’d want, plus at least a dozen restaurants within a few blocks. We ate at 121 Tapas on the Water, and loved it. There’s an Enterprise car rental a mile away if you need it. There’s a manatee education center right next to the marina, an art museum, and some exhibits about Zora Neale Hurston (I didn’t know she was an anthropologist, in addition to being a writer) and about the Highwaymen (a school of local artists). This was a lovely marina, and a great place to spend a couple of days!

    I stayed at the Newly Rebuilt Marina last weekend, May23, and it is truly a beautiful Marina. I stayed there numerous times before the Hurricane destroyed it. The staff is great, the floating docks are great, and the local restaurant are wonderful.

    The best thing is we had a company come out and service our diesel engines onsite last minute! We do suggest Burkey Marine Group 772-215-7663

    7/11 Food Store is now open! One block from the Marina! The 7/11 is open 24 hours, so when you get that craving for an ice cream, or late night sandwich you now have somewhere to go without having to jump in your car or call a taxi.

    My wife and I are looking forward to a stay in Ft.Pierce Marina on our upcoming voyage!Thanks for the helpful updates and advice!

    Good Place! $1.50/per foot. Restaurant as said previously was fabulous! Came in excellent inlet after night of pounding to beat cold front and gale force winds. Stayed extra night and then heading to the keys for the winter. Publix is within walking distance for me (I’m a walker anyway). WARNING: they are doing barge work and we were first boat in apparently. It did not go smooth. They have a temporary channel right after fixed bridge (going south). Had to talk to barge and then marina. The directions were not perfect over the radio BUT they sent a small boat to lead the way. When they get the new breakwater finished, it will be nearly perfect.

    Nice marina, very courteous staff, welcome respite after an overnight sail from Miami. The only issue we had was we barely got in here because of their channel depth. As we were entering yesterday, the depth finder hit 5.5′ twice, that’s what our boat draws, luckily we made it in though. Now I am stuck in the slip because it is low tide (about mid tide when I came in yesterday), and I should be underway right now. My advice, if your boat draws more than about 4′, pay close attention to the tides at this marina. Other than that, it is a wonderful place to stay and the Tiki Bar is awesome. Restroom/shower facilities are top notch.

    One other word of caution, the current rips across their entrance channel which makes it even more challenging to stay in the “deep” water, a term I use lightly.

    Nice marina, some good places to eat in town, and the only marina in 4 months where the driers dry a load with one cycle

  9. Capt Bob Kovach -  December 6, 2010 - 10:05 am

    Finishing up a great weekend at Ft Pierce (Party) Marina. Friday was a great Street Party “Friday Fest” 65 Vendors with crafts and food. Saturday a Great Farmers Market in the Parking lot. Biggest one we have seen. Sunday we had a front row seat to the local Christmas Parade from our slip F11 which fronted the parade route. Leaving Monday a.m. for Palm Beach, MM1012 and then Biscayne Bay for the Hawk Channel to Marathon for the winter. Hope these cold fronts get fewer as the weeks move on

    Ft. Pierce City Marina – Ft. Pierce, FL, ICW 966. This is our southern destination. We stay here for at least 2 months each winter. It is just off of the Indian River, very accessible, and has an excellent inlet to the Atlantic Ocean. The “old town” city center of activity is at the marina! There is a weekly farmer’s market, parades, monthly old car rallies, motorcycle rallies, great restaurants, shopping, and all other necessary services. This marina is really well managed, with an excellent staff, and is a terrific stop for ocean/ICW travelers.

    Hello all:
    Palmetto Moon with Su, Jim, and Alex (the lazy cat) are in Ft. Pierce City Marina. Good facility with very knowledge people and easy bus service to Publix, Lowes, and CVS. Looks like we will stay here for a looooog time. Temp. as of this writing is 78 and a low of 68 tonight.
    Safe travels

    Subject: Harbor Cove Restaurant – Ft Pierce
    Cruising News: Fabulous Restaurant alert! We were at Harbor Town Marina in Ft Pierce last night and the restaurant there, Harbor Cove Restaurant was a true and wonderful surprise. We had “dirty Oysters” to start which were fresh and large raw oysters topped with sour cream, caviar and onions. The oysters were fresh and truly incredible. Prime Rib was the special which was so good that this morning I am kicking myself for not getting a portion to take home for lunch today. (take THAT Coinjock!) And the Mussels with pasta were some of the best mussels I\’ve had outside of Maine. All of this, 2 beers and a drink for $55.
    Friendly and helpful staff, and locals were terrific.
    And as far as the marina goes, also terrific. Grounds are beautifully maintained, loaner bikes, they will arrange for Enterprise…very helpful in every way. Electric was good, docks well maintained.
    This is an absolute must stop for us on our commute up and down the coast.

    My wife and I have always enjoyed staying at the Fort Pierce City Marina when ever we traveled up or down the east coast. It’s right in the down town area and the city seems to always have something going on on the week ends. Don’t know what the rates are now but they were the best in the area. Nice showers and laundry rooms and great restaurants right at the docks shopping near by.

    Hello all:
    t has been said that Ft. Pierce, FL City Marina (mm 965) is a great place to stay, but has poor transportation service for the boating community to shop and re-supply.
    Palmetto Moon is in Ft Pierce, it is a great place, clean, great staff, 14 restaurants in a 4 block area, well protected, a BIG Farmers Market and arts/crafts tents every Saturday, 4 washers/dryers (1.00), and concerts in the park adjacent to the marina.
    Su and I have unraveled the bus issues. There are 2 types of transportation services offered:
    1. A scheduled route, Treasure Coast Connector, that runs North and South on US 1, appox. every 30 min. However these stops are 4 blocks from the marinas. So if you do full shopping/re-provisioning the schlepping becomes a huge task.
    2. The Community Transit System. A true door-to-door route (no set route) that you must make reservations for pick up. This service works very well for heavy shopping. But, takes appox. 3.5 – 4 hours to complete your round trip. This service is more complicated to use, as you must register in advance of your shopping plans and then call 24 hours before, to schedule a pick-up. This service is not one that can be utilized on the day of arrival without registering in advance. To register before arrival call 772-464-7433. This system uses computer routing, the exact address is required both for pick-up and destination. To get around this we go to the office, get the add. then make the call.
    Downside issues:
    A. If the bus is crowded they can limit the carry-ons to 4 bags per person
    B. Pick-up time is sometime after 8 AM (remember no set route) normally around 8:30 – 8:45 and continues to pick-up and drop-off until your stop.
    C. If Wal-Mart is your destination add 1.5 – 2 hours to your trip.
    D. Normal shopping to Wal-Mart (Tues.) and Publix (Thurs.)

    All my charts show the entrance channel SOUTH of marker 188. Somehow I have the feeling that it has changed. Can some one give me a heads up as what to expect & where it is located

    The Ft. Pierce City Marina website right now says the following:
    “A new entrance channel located 1/8th mile past South Bridge and past the concrete telephone poles is now open. Contact us on VHF radio: channels 16 & 09 GPS coordinates: 27 26.56 N Latitude, 80 19.21 W Longitude”
    That position is near the basin entrance. NOAA chart 11475 shows the original channel leaving the ICW south of marker 188 as you say, although there is a deep area south of the bridge and near the west bank of the bay that appears navigable if you can get to it. However, it does NOT show any other marked channel. I suggest you call the marina to confirm: (800) 619-1780.
    Failing contact with them, BoatUS or SeaTow will know.
    I am looking at the online version of the NOAA chart, corrected to latest NM and LNM.
    For clarity, my information is NOT local knowledge…

    Larry, it is close to the bridge you head west then south follow the markers

    Cruising News: We arrived on the 12th. The channel marks can be (are) confusing. After chatting with the marina on 09, it became clear (if not explained). Mark #3 and #4 have the opposite coloration of all the rest of the marks in the entrance channel. The colors are unimportant. What is important is going between the marks (watch for side set). Treat them as if they had the colors of the remaining marks. We arrived an hour and a half after high tide and saw 6.5 feet minimum and 22 feet maximum on the way in. This is a very nice place. If you can get the last slip on D dock, you can refuel and pump out from the slip!

    We’re headed south at the moment but wanted to plug the Fort Pierce City Marina, complete with Boat US discounts on both fuel and dockage. On Saturday mornings they have one of the best farmers’ markets you’ll see: baked goods, fruits, vegetables, fresh seafood, unbelievable guacamole, jams, crafts, etc. They also have lots of free festivals with live music, and the marina staff, town folk and permanent dock dwellers (including two former Loopers) are all exceptionally friendly. Put it on your list.
