        This is a friendly marina. Adequate showers, and new commercial warsher/driers are useful. The marina has nice floating docks for cruisers. Check with the staff regarding fuel dock depths, though 4 1/2 feet with rising tide over a soft bottom was reported. The WlFi coverage at transit docks worked well for us. Goodland is the old style Florida village with several good places to eat. We regularly use the inland route from Marco with 4 1/2 foot draft though one needs to note the channel markings carefully inshore side Marco bridge. Coon Key pass has always shown us more water than that charted depths inbound from the SE.

        It is a really neat run up the back door to there from Marco. Marina is neat. Shallow water is true, but with our 4′ draft, we made it just fine. It is a nice, short run from there to Everglades City, but take the east side of the last island when you leave and not the channel. Locals will tell you how.

        We’ve been by Calusa many times; we love the area! But, it is shallow, and particularly in the mornings with the prevailing diurnal tides of the SW Coast. From the Coon Key Channel, what’s your “local knowledge” advice on
        getting onto the marina? And also, did you “partake” at Stan’s?

        Just want to put in a good word for the folks at Calusa Island Marina, Goodland, FL. It is sunny and warm among the mangrove islands just at the edge of the 10,000 Islands. Cheryl, Andrew, Larry and dockmaster, Don, are
        friendly, welcoming and very helpful. So if you are still on your way south (or coming north) a stop here is well worth it.

        Calusa Island Marina update as of Feb. 1st, 2011. From Claiborne Young’s outstanding 2008 Cruising Guide to West Florida (7th ed.), he implied that Calusa would be cruiser friendly in our hour of need. They are. VERY. Our story follows the important facts: Calusa has now made available a dinghy dock fee for we who prefer the hook at night. The fee includes shoreside access, showers and laundry. Transient “dockers” are still very welcome too. Andrew Barksdale whose card says “President” and “Managing Partner”, absolutely ROCKS. I now think of him as “can do – Andrew”. That spirit runs thru what we saw of the operation. “Just ask first and we’ll make it work,” is what he told me referring to out-of-the-box arrangements. The protected anchorage in Blue Hill Creek has good depths for a half mile beyond him, Andrew said. Calusa has Block Ice! Gas prices competitive with Marco. Their water tasted very good on the day we filled up (after ASKING FIRST). Groceries, Ace Hardware with LP refill station (see our story below) and West Marine are about 3 and a half miles. We have our own bike which makes that easy for us in flat S. FLorida. Andrew has plans to have loaner bicycles available to dinghy dock users in March and I strongly encouraged that ASAP. A loaner car is hopefully in the works for next season. Goodland’s restaurants are a big draw as is prominently mentioned in the Guide (as well as above). We too have been told that Marker 8 Restaurant is good. The lunch special at Little Bar is still good at ~$6.95 we hear.
        Our story: 8 o’clock on a Sunday morning at Tiger Key about 12 miles South and East of Goodland/Calusa Island Marina. A defective back-up propane 20 lb bottle (seal completely missing!!! on Blue Rhino exchange LP bottle – we’ll check that in future before accepting an exchange) won’t connect at all, which means our fridge and its contents will soon be room temp… Claiborne’s superlative guide steers me toward Calusa as my first call (on the cell). Andrew answers. He tells me that I can get my empty tank REFILLED at the Ace in S. Marco on a Sunday. ” I just filled mine there, so I know they have it.” he tells me. “Can you be here before noon?” he asks. We do. And he drives me in his car to Ace for a very reasonable charge. And the refill was less $ than the (defective) exchange had been at Winn Dixie in N. Marco (see Side note at end). The fridge stays cold. The food is saved. And we find a truly welcoming facility for cruisers like us who genuinely prefer lying on an anchor at night to docking. Showers, laundry, block ice and a friendly welcome. Perfect.

        We ended up staying at Calusa Island Yacht Club (just a marina) at Goodland, just south of Marco Is. for a month last year. Laid back and beautiful setting and Stan’s Idle Hour Bar ( is just up the street!! Anchorages are also available around the Goodland area if you decide to stay for a shorter time.
        Wish you warm breeze and calm seas.

        You all are welcome to visit us at Calusa Island Marina this season. We have concrete floating docks with full services, including a pump-out at every slip, and courtesey transportation to the Supermarket and Liquor Store. Several good restaurants are within walking distance. Cruise groups up to twenty or more can be accomodated with advance notice. Approaches from either north (Marco River) or south (Coon Key Pass) are 5 feet mean low water.
        We carry diesel fuel and gasoline. We also have a 50-ton Travelift and a complete service department, in case you are in need of repairs. We have added two more dry storage buildings and are now certified Yamaha Outboard Service providers. Construction of a swimming pool is emminent and it may be completed by Febraury.
        So come on down to Goodland and spend a day, a week, a month or a season. Key West and Marathon are each about eighty nautical miles from here and the cruising is good, with the Keys, Ten Thousand Islands and Everglades National Park to the south and Marco Island, Naples and Pine Island Sound to the north.
        Happy Cruising.
