    For the best price and best protected harbor try Riviera Dunes on the Manatee River, up from Twin Dolphins and Regatta Point.

    Riviera Dunes in Palmetto up the Manatee river is fantastic. Well protected, pools, bar, restaurant and friendly staff.

    While the basin that the marina is located in is not charted, it is not large enough to require charting. The shallowest water found is the channel to the basin. Our boat is in this marina and normally has over 15′ of water under her.

    The marina is well maintained, the staff is great, the location is excellent.
