The message below is, as you undoubtedly noticed without my telling you, copied off the AGLCA mail list.
We have always found Port St. Joe Marina to be a superb facility, and they are a SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR! It’s well worth a trip down the Gulf County Canal to St. Joseph Bay, the home of Port St. Joe Marina. Tell them we sent you!
We pulled into Port St. Joe December 31 at 1600. John, the harbor master, was there to show us where to tie the boat as well as give us a hand. All this is expected when pulling into a marina for the first time. However, also in attendance and helping were AGLCA harbor hosts Ray and Patsy Whitney. They made sure we had everything and anything we wanted or needed. They offered to let us use their car. They made us feel very “welcome” and introduced us to other “loopers” at the marina. I could go on forever praising Ray and Patsy as well as John and the rest of the marina staff for their very efficient and well run marina and for making all loopers feel like this is a “home away from home”. We have cruised the entire loop and many places loopers usually don’t get to in our ten years of cruising and this is one of the friendliest marinas we have stopped at. If you are cruising the panhandle don’t make the mistake of bypassing Port St. Joe.
