     The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.

    Good news from this SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Marineland Marina which lies south – southeast of AICW marker #87, along the Waterway’s eastern shore. Our thanks to Chris Kelley for this report.

    Marineland Marina is fully operational with no damage from Irma and 20 new slips of concrete floating docks and a new marina building with restrooms and laundry to support the new docks. Dredging also increased the depths to 6.5′. Palm Coast Marina, 7 miles south of Marineland, continues to have the best Diesel prices in the area.

     The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.

    Good reports keep pouring in for SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, Marineland Marina which lies south – southeast of AICW marker #87, along the Waterway’s eastern shore. Our thanks to David and Jaculeyn for sharing their delightful blog.

    Folks at Vero Beach has recommended Marineland Marina to us as a “must do” layover. We are very glad we did. This marina is undergoing renovations. Brand-new floating docks have been installed. A new dock-master’s office is under construction. The staff are delightful highly customer-service focused young men who are enthusiastic about meeting the needs of boaters. Read More

    The Atlantic Ocean is directly across the road A1A from the Marina. We were able to enjoy walking on the sand but did not go in the water as it was quite rough.

    We toured Marineland. The experience can best be described as a “blast from the past.” It is a simple place full of history and yet an active living aquatic experience for visitors today. Jackie remembers going to Marineland as a child, so this was a bit of a memory jogger for her. We had the honor of a “private” 45-minute tour with 2 delightful young women who clearly love what they do. Marineland was started in 1938 as a movie studio and then grew and changed over the years. It was the sight for WWII Naval training exercises. It was the first oceanarium and provided early training of dolphins. The first of whom was Nellie who lived to a very old age, the oldest known dolphin in captivity. Marineland now has an educational and research focus thanks to funding by the Vanderbilt Whitney family, the University of Florida and the Georgia Aquarium. There are no longer “dolphin shows” like Sea World or other amusement parks. It was fun to see pictures of the old TV shows and movies that have been filmed here. Jackie’s favorite was SEA HUNT with a very young Lloyd Bridges. We also got to see the educational part in action with a group of elementary school children on a field trip. They clearly were learning about the aquatic world and showed great enthusiasm for the dolphins and the other sea creatures here.

  • Marineland Marina, Statute Mile 796

     The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.On 4/22/13, as part of a NE Florida – Georgia wish list, we posed the following question:

    3. Statute Mile 796- I know that many of you have visited with, and had a good experience at Marineland Marina, north of maker #89. Please let us hear what you found so special about this facility.

    Responses follow:

    Our boat is presently at Marineland. We were there a few days before having to come home for a month and enjoyed it so much will stay another 4 days or so before we head north. If you love walks on the beach or on trails, kayaking and nature you will love Marineland. The staff are wonderful!
    Tom and Jan Hines on Laughter

    We love Marineland Marina. Everyone there is most helpful and makes sure you have everything you need. They will lend you a car to provision at Publix and get supplies at the hardware store. The bathrooms are kept clean and tidy, laundry is free, and you even get discounts on Marineland tours and kayaking ecotours with Ripple Effect. You can walk in the maritime forest, cross the street to a beautiful deserted beach, and hear the ocean from your boat. Dolphins come and feed each evening in the marina basin. We were treated like family and plan to make a trip to Marineland part of our journey each year. Bravo to Chris Kelley for providing cruisers with a wonderful haven.
    Dick and Sue Schneider

    The staff is professional and though they do not have all the frills (fuel, captains lounge) they do have free pump-out and the beach is across the street. If you’re looking for a restful stop-over, this is the place to be and the price is right.
    Robert & Carolyn Wilson
    MY Sea Island Girl

    We spent a week at this facility on our way south and are spending a month here on our way north. Chris, the dockmaster, and his staff are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make cruisers feel welcome. It’s the kind of place where cruisers may stop intending to stay for a day or two and end up staying much longer. There are beautiful beaches, walking trails and mangroves to explore by dinghy. This is a marina for nature-lovers — there are no restaurants within walking distance and nothing to “do” other than enjoy the natural surroundings. Dockage rates are a steal — $1.00/foot per night and tempting rates for weekly or monthly stays. If you draw more than five feet, however, getting into and out of the marina would be difficult.
    Captain Mary
    S/V Intermezzo

    We were one of the first boats to stay there when they reopened. The two staff guys are amazingly great. We have been there several times now and at $1/ft, given the location, it is tone of the best deals going. Just across the street is the beach, Marineland itself where you can see dolphins and a snack bar. Provisions are difficult to obtain but sometimes Eric’s car is available, even though it is not the marina’s courtesy car (it is his personal car) he often is seen loaning it out. If you borrow it,please fill it up for him. Also, dink across the waterway to see one of the largest protected lands in all of the USA where you can see all kind of critters. Also, at Marineland, they have a group that will take you over on kayaks. This is an example of if marinas do not overcharge, they will always have business. As we have traveled FLA these past two years (from our home port in NC), we see many empty marinas that are charging $2 or more and have few boats in them.
    John Winter

    Stayed here 4 20 13 Well received and clean, easy to get in and out. Would stay here again.
    Greg and Donna on
    Lady in Red

    The dockmaster and assistants are excellent, very friendly and there is nothing that they would not do for you. At $1/ft with free laundry and excellent, clean restrooms you simply cannot go wrong. Stay three nights and the dockmaster will lend you his personal car to go grocery shopping.
    Werner & Kathie Steuernagel

    Claiborne,
    We spent some time in Marineland Marina recently and found them to be exceptional people. If they didn’t know your name by the time your dock lines were secured, you probably stayed inside for that docking. This is a small marina but lots of helpful people. It is well protected in winds and storms. When we experienced a medical emergency, the staff did everything possible to make a bad situation as good as anyone could expect. We feel they are now part of our boating family and we won’t miss an opportunity to stop to say hello whether by land or sea.
    Tom Conrad
    m/v True North

    We are here now…stopped in to wait out the winds..rates are great…power and water. Chris and all the marina crew are terrific..great help coming in, free pumpout, nice laundry and showers..like new..marina is very clean and dolphins play in the harbor.
    Visited the Matanzas fort, had a great lunch at the Matanzas inlet restaurant, spent earth day at Washington Oaks Park, beautiful beach across the street you can walk with your dog, Marineland Dolphin Center and took a sunset eco kayak tour with Brandon..like a mini holiday..bikes help but you can use a loaner car to get to Publix or further out
    Slomocean..Karen and Gary Holtze

    We stayed two nights at this little marina after leaving St. Augustine in January. Although w have had lots of helpful folks at many marinas, these guys win the prize for the most helpful. As rookies we needed all the help we could get, especially getting into tight places. It is a pretty spot to walk around, and they took folks into town once a day to get groceries. We got a free pass to the marineland center as well. The marina and the surrounding environment was very clean, and they sponsored kayak nature excursions. The beautiful beach was right across the road from the marina.
    Tim and Lisa Keith-Lucas
    Santa Catalina de Guale

    Bad weather forced us in to Daytona and up ICW as we were heading north after wintering in the Keys. Stayed at Marineland as we are familiar with it. Eric and other staff are super, from tying up to helping us visit Publix which is about 5 miles away. We had to stay 3 nights due to storm but there is no better deal on the ICW. The secret seems to be out about how good everything here is as it was packed. The price and “laidback atmosphere” are hard to beat.

  • More Good Words for Marineland Marina (Statute Mile 796)

     The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.If we get many more laudatory reviews here at the SSECN concerning Marineland Marina (A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR), we may have to create a separate web site for this facility. Just kidding – seriously fellow cruisers, it is obvious that you simply cannot do better than coil your lines here for a few nights, or even longer!

    As you start north this spring, consider a stop here and a visit to Marineland across the street. Stay 3 days and get complimentory pass to Marineland. Kelly and Erick are great, and they love us loopers. Marinland is now owned by the Georgia Aquarium, and money has been put in to bring this “first in the world marine park” back to first class status. One of our best stops EVER.

    I couldn’t agree more. Our boat is spending a few months there until the Spring when we return to cruise the Keys. Marineland Marina is definitely a great place to stay.

    Stayed a week when sickness appeared. Great place to recuperate, about 5 miles to Publix which is OK with bike, nice ride (they offered transportation but I wanted the exercise). We plan on staying a week this spring when headed back north and will visit Marineland again. Chris and Eric were fantastic with help and advice, just like last year. (Free laundry during business hours) and wi-fi was better this year (DSL), could use PC without external antenna but IPAD couldn’t connect. I took some long walks on the trails but we did not take the nature tours due to the sickness. Planning on kayak and nature tours next spring. Definitely stop if you have a day or two to chill!

    We stayed at Marineland on our way down the ICW in October. Beautiful place. Very nice people. The beach is across the street. Nice hiking or biking trail. The ecotour is wonderful. The guides have great knowledge and love what they are doing. The dolphins at Marineland are well taken care off. They have a lot of interactive programs with the dolphins.
    If you look for a lot of action this is not the place to stay. If you love nature and some quiet time you have to stop. We were going to stop for a night and stayed for 10 days.
    If it was up to me, I would probably still be there.
    Claudia Young

    Our boat is at Marineland Marina now and we love it there. We cruised the ICW south this fall and plan to visit the Keys in the spring. Will return to Early Bird a few times in between work to enjoy the quiet natural setting and friendly staff and boaters there.

    One marina that we’re familiar with that puts you 200 yards from the ocean is the relatively newly opened Marineland Marina between St.
    Augustine and Daytona (http://www.marinelandmarina.com/). Not only can you enjoy the dolphin show at Marineland but there’s a great beach.
    However, there are no restaurants or other amenities (shopping) nearby.

  • [EXPIRED] GREAT News – Restaurant Now Open Beside Marineland Marina (Statute Mile 796)

     The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.The best just keep getting better. Marineland Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, has been racking up a whole series of impressive reviews here on the Cruisers’ Net and elsewhere. Now, one of the only drawback to staying here has been remedied. Looks like there’s now a good lunch spot just across the road from the dockage basin. Must give this spot a try when next our travels take us to these waters!

    Welcome JT’s Lunch Shack to the Town of Marineland……located just across the street from the marina!
    A fantastic and affordable menu that includes sandwiches, wraps, beer and wine, etc. right next to the beach and the Marineland Dolphin Adventure!
    Just a short walk from the Town of Marineland Marina!
    Open from 10:00AM to 4:00PM daily.

  • Great Time at Marineland Marina! AICW Statute Mile 796

     The Town of Marineland has opened its ports with a brand new marina facility creating a destination for boaters on the Intracoastal Waterway between Daytona Beach and St. Augustine, FL.Marineland Marina, A SALTY SOUTHEAST CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR, lies south – southeast of AICW marker #87, along the Waterway’s eastern shore. This marina had been closed for many years, but just recently reopened. While there are not yet any nearby restaurants or good provisioning possibilities (though these are planned for the future), the new incarnation of Marineland Marina IS already another excellent stop for cruisers plying the AICW between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach and is setting the standard for how cruisers should be treated!

    Cruising News:
    We left Jacksonville eager to get to Marineland Marina after all the great reviews on Cruisersnet. After dealing with a small mechanical issue, I hailed Eric at Marineland to let him know we were running late. His response was, “no problem, safe travels”. This is Friday evening near closing time, no less. Long story short, we made it safely and Eric provided outstanding service all weekend. A 20,000 acre estuary across the ICW, UF Marine Science facilities on site featuring a crystal clear ocean species “pond”, a beautiful, secluded beach across the street, and clean, uncrowded facilities are just a few of the highlights. Back at work now but can’t wait to go back!

    We just left our Pearson 424 “MOJO” at Marineland for a month while I came back to our yacht brokerage to catch up on things. Chris and his staff can’t do enough for you. The facilities are absolutely spotless. Enterprise will bring you a rental car and St. Augustine is just a short drive if you want to do the tourist thing. Great uncrowded beach just across the street. Fantastic dockage rates. This will be a regular stop for us!
