Question re Entrance Channel to Sabine Bay Marina (Pensacola Beach. St. M. 189)

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 06-27-2012

The entrance to Little Sabine Bay, and Sabine Bay Marina, lies just to the south, immediately west of the high-rise Pensacola Beach Bridge. Follow the marked channel carefully, as you make your entrance, particularly at low water. Once into the Bay, stay away from the water body’s mid-width. There is shoal water there! If you’ve been in this channel recently, let us hear from you. According to a spokesperson at the marina, the channel was dredged to 11ft last year and is about 9ft now. The marina’s phone is 850-932-1904.

An earlier report:

We have stayed at Sabine Marina and it’s a great little place. Very laid back don’t expect to be wine and dined. Right across the street (real close in walking distance) from the tourists’ attractions of Pensacola beach but without the hassle of tying off your vessel at the Boardwalk and risking kids jumping all in and over your boat while you take in the Pensacola beach attractions. I highly recommend dockage at Sabine Marina.

Jan, I have a 45′ Sea Ray sedan bridge drawing 4.5′. Planning on going there on 7/5/12 and anchoring next to the sand bar in the middle of Little Sabine bay. Have you been there recently? Is the depth in the channel enough for me to comfortably get in and out?? I can tell the channel in looks a little shallow by Google Earth. Is it well marked?? Thanks a million.
