    • Matanzas Pass Mooring Field Temporarily Closed, Matanzas Pass, Fort Myers Beach, FL


      The Town of Fort Myers Beach proudly operates and maintains the Matanzas Harbor Municipal Mooring Field. The field boasts 70 mooring balls available for public rental year-round, and accommodates vessels up to 48 feet in length. The mooring field is located east of the Sky Bridge between San Carlos and Estero Islands in Matanzas Pass. For recreational cruisers, the Fort Myers Beach Mooring Field is a wonderful destination. Coming ashore at the Town’s dinghy dock puts boaters in walking distance to beaches, restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and public transportation. Mooring ball rental fees are $13/day or $260/month. All renters MUST register with Matanzas Inn upon arrival. The dinghy dock is available for public use to tie up dinghies 10’ or less (no overnight tie-ups). The dock is located beneath the Sky Bridge between Matanzas Inn Restaurant and the public fishing pier.

      Few Floridian communities are as welcoming to the cruising community as CRUISERS NET SPONSOR, Fort Myers Beach! This is a town that knows how to treat cruisers and we wish them a speedy recover from Hurricane Ian. 

      Until further notice, the Town of Fort Myers Beach has temporarily closed Matanzas Pass Mooring Field due to the impacts of Hurricane Ian. The Town needs to inspect and refurbish all mooring systems to ensure standard and safe mooring services.  No water, restrooms, pump out services, or any public docking systems are available at this time. The Town is working on getting the mooring field and upland services restored as quickly as possible. Feel free to call (239) 224-4118 with any questions.
