        Stayed here April 7 -8, 2012. We have friends here and tied up near the end of the pier, close to the trees on the cigar-shaped island that separates the marina from the canal. If you react to no-see-ums as my wife does, use muchas bug spray.

        This marina has fixed docks but there is no tide here thanks to NASA who built a lock system to keep the sea off their property.

        Manatee frequent the marina and gators and sharks have been spotted.

        Watch your speed as you approach the Christa McAuliffe Bridge, (the tenders offensively call it the “Rt 3 bridge” saving 3 whole syllables). The tender might scold you and tell you that you are too late for the opening for which you were on time. She also doesn’t seem to monitor 9 until you are approaching and scold you for not calling sooner.

        There is a friendly group of live-aboards here and dock parties happen frequently.

        Currently, they are running a $0.75 per night (two nights only) special.

        Harbortown Marina is one of the nicest marinas around. That being said, there’s not much to see or do on the waterways around there. We live close by and cruise the barge canal regularly. Nautical spirits bar and restaurant is great for dinner, but there is nothing else around within walking distance. There is a Publix about 5 miles down the road, and a Wal-Mart about 8 miles, if one wanted to cab it. Or you’re about 10 minutes from the beach at Jetty Park from there as well. Too bad there’s only a couple of more shuttles to launch, because this is a great area to watch from. If you get a chance to see one in the next month or so, don’t miss your chance.

        Really liked the welcome at Harbortown Marina. They had a special of $.85/foot in November, for up to two days, then $1.00/foot. Very protected. Nice restaurant on site. Not close to any shopping, though, and no courtesy car.

        Subject: Banana river
        Message: Don’t know if you will want to post this or not, but we just came thru the Banana River from Harbortown Marina to Vero Beach.
        Harbor Town is a remote nice, inexspensive Marina, whith reasonable fuel rates. Paid $3.63 plus tax, and $1 a foot for transient.Has a nice bar/resturant on property.
        Beyond that, There isn\’t much I can say about the Banana River. It\’s wide, nothing to see, nowhere to go, and shallow, very shallow. and ill marked. I will visit Harbor town again but not the Banana River.
        See you on the waterways

        Just about the best fuel prices on FL east coast are at Harbortown Marina, mm 894 on the ICW, just north of the Cocoa bridge. Turn east off the channel onto the Canaveral Barge Canal and run 2 1/2 miles to the marina on the south shore. $1.00/ft dockage with BoatUS. You may get a fuel discount (10 cents/gal) if you stay there.
