Bayside Marina is the (what else) marina part of the mammoth World Wide Sportsman’s operation, in the heart of Islamorada. There’s lots of neat restaurants, shops and provisioning possibilities within walking distance.
HOWEVER, Captains Brooke and Susan are quite correct in their comments about the shallow entrance passage to this facility. We have often sounded 4 feet during MLW, while cruising into Little Basin. Deep draft vessels need not apply, but for those whose draft does not exceed 4 feet, give this facility a try!
Today it was a short trip to Islamorada and are at the World Wide Sportsman Marina. Diesel is $4.09 and slip is $2.00/ft including free pumpout and electricity too. This is an EXTREMELY shallow approach 4′. Tide is 1 hour after Alligator reef if you want to come here. It really is nice once you get in.
