St. Johns Marina is just a short hop north of the DeLand/Whitehair Bridge, along the St. Johns’ northeasterly banks.
The “Boat Show Marina” Burned in a 5 hour fire on July 25th 2003. The fire destroyed almost all of the covered slips and a lot of boats too. A new owner from south Florida bought the place and changed the name to St. John’s Marina. The restaurant is still closed. Shady Oaks [nearby restaurant] is right on the river just on the other side of the Whitehair bridge. They serve a good fish sandwich and cold beer. Some outdoor tables in a screen room right on the waters edge are available. Great little spot on the water.
