        We are at Legacy Harbour in Fort Myers, been here for six weeks now. Folks here are very friendly. Note that some marinas do not allow livaboards. We are one block from Publix, walking distance to Edison Winter Home, many downtown restaurants and the new waterfront that opened last month.

        Five Stars for Legacy Harbour and Cap’t Eric (Harbormaster) and his team. Always there to help you dock and to ensure your stay is what you expect. Cap’t Eric is a good source for referrals for yacht services that you may require during your stay and yacht maintenance if you need to leave your boat for an extended period of time. Historic Downtown Fort Myers with a variety of restaurants/entertainment venues and grocery store within walking distance add to the enjoyment of this location. You can enjoy a walk or bike ride down the palm lined streets and a tour of the Edison/Ford Estates.

        Legacy Harbour Marina in Ft. Meyers has also been designed for hurricane storm surges .. floating concrete docks on tall concrete posts.

        Not to mention the swimming pool and marina lounge and the chici hut. Especially nice in season with pot lucks and movie nights. Super friendly and very knowledgeable staff. If they refer you to any service personnel rest assured they have been vetted and are the best at their art in the area.

        I could not agree more. Great staff, floating docks and close to downtown Ft Myers.

        We’ve had our 32 ft. sailboat at Legacy Harbour for 5 years and absolutely love the place. It’s in a great location, kept in wonderful condition and the staff are the best people in the world to work with. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance along with fun things going on in Ft. Myers. Just a good place to be.

        After checking out 7 marinas in the area, we selected Legacy Harbour in Fort Myers for our spring “base”. What a great choice! It is about 15 miles up the Caloosahatchee -safe from all the TS Debby surge, yet just a half
        day cruise to fabulous anchorages at Captiva, Sanibel, etc. An easy drive to Naples, Marco, the Everglades and various nature reserves. The marina is clean, with floating docks, slip-side pump-outs, nice showers and laundry,
        work-out room, lounge and salt-water pool. AND the staff, led by Eric and Lana, are absolutely the best. We’ll be back!

        If you want to experience a top notch marina while visiting a wonderful Florida city, consider a night or two or an entire season at the Legacy Harbour Marina in downtown Fort Myers. It will fulfill your every dream, ie floating docks, protected harbor, dockside pumpout, cable TV, Internet, attentive dock hands when coming or going, security fences, boaters lounge, swimming pool, cabana for hanging out, free parking, walking distance to bakery, Publix grocery story, liquor store and restaurants, weekend entertainment at adjacent city park, marina movie nights, and competive rates. If you need work done on your boat, they have a full service of
        contractors. Try it the next time you are in the area and you will find it hard to beat.
        Stay safe,
        Tom (the weather guy)

        We stayed at Legacy and left our boat their and then decided to stay longeron our return. It was absolutely delightful. The is a new Publix foodstore two blocks away and plenty of restaurants and entertainment.
        Both marinas are good, but Legacy is the most comfortable with floating docks and pump-outs at the slip, etc.

        December 2010 and January 2011 we spent at Legacy and loved every day of it. The staff is knowledgeable, very helpful and an asset to the marina. The Edison-Ford Museum is just down the street and is a must-see. We could easily spend 5-6 hours there. Ft. Myers downtown has been revitalized and is also a short walk. We look forward to our next visit to Legacy Harbour Marina.

        My wife and I enjoyed our stay, last winter, at the Municipal Marina, however, we’re looking forward to staying at Legacy Harbor Marina this winter. We’ve visited (walking) their facility on several occasions and are very impressed. Not only are their facilities impressive, the staff was extremely pleasant and down-to-earth. Looking forward to staying there this winter!

        Your recent posting about Legacy Marina in Ft. Myers is absolutely true. It is a great place to stay.
        All docks are floating and in excellent shape. The staff is most accommodating and available.
        The ability to walk to nearby downtown facilities is also very good. A very fine Oriental restaurant exists just southeast of the marina, within a few blocks walking distance. This marina is a “must” when transiting the Ft. Myers area.

        I heartily agree with the positive comments about Legacy Harbour Marina in Ft. Myers. We were part of a group of four boats from Solomons, MD that went south this past winter. Some of our group had visited Ft. Myers and vicinity by car the previous winter to check out potential places to stay and Legacy Harbour as well as Ft. Myers came out as top choice. All of the perks mentioned above are true. We arrived towards in early February just before it began to blow and blow and blow. Once there, we never left until heading back home across the lake. It was just too cold and windy. Apart from the amenities discussed above, the cruiser’s group there has potluck dinners each week. There was also a group dinner out each week to a new restaurant with those with cars driving those without. We were tied up on D dock, the outer breakwater and that was an experience when the winds were from the northwest across the river. Dave and his staff at Legacy Harbour really made everyone welcome and went out their way to help out. Another plus coming up in the installation of dockside pump outs for all the docks. D dock will probably be last on the list but, this amenty is really welcome. After checking out Naples and Punta Gorda, Ft. Myers and Legacy Harbour would surely be our choice for a return visit.

        21 March to 13 April 2010.
        We chose Legacy over the nearby municipal marina as it had a reduced weekly rate, a rarity in this part of the world. Staying a second week, it was cheaper paying for a month although we pushed on after three weeks and it was still a bargain. I heartily agree with all of the superlatives previously posted
        Comparing it with the other marina which we visited by foot as it has a nice small marine store with a complete supply of local government charts, Legacy is within easier walking distance to a Publix. The municipal marina is closer to downtown which offers boutique-type shops, restaurants, a coffee house and a newly opened, well-stocked, dollar store. The Thursday farmer’s market is handy to both marinas.
        The big plus for us was metered electricity. Instead of paying up to $12/day for 30 amp service, our entire three-week stay amounted to $5.85, or $.30/day. For the first and only time, we were able to see exactly how much we were paying in excess of our actual usage.
        The fixed break-wall at municipal offers more protection from the swell from river traffic and wind blowing across the wide expanse of river. Legacy’s floating dock break-wall dampens it down but the entrance, open to the north, allows the swell to snake in. Finger dock slips are available extending from the break-wall that offer a nice view of the river but in stronger winds it’s an adventurous trip navigating to shore whilst dodging the odd wave breaking over the dock. We were on a floating dock closer in.
        Most of the cruisers we met at Legacy were repeat customers, coming back year after year to stay for a week or two like us, taking advantage of a reduced rate for a period shorter than a month.
        We made good use of the Fort Myers bus system as well as periodically renting cars for day trips. There is an Enterprise, Avis and Hertz nearby. All offered to pick us up and return us to the marina.
        A nearby restaurant, Sub & Pub, is unique and good value for money. Neither a submarine sandwich parlor nor a true pub, it offers daily home cooked specials – hearty portions at bargain prices – as well as regular fare. The relaxed, folksy decor was a welcome change from the restaurant chains. In the latter category, a Joe’s Crab Shack is located on the marina premises, replete with dancing waitresses and loud music. Still, it was hard to resist the odd visit as the irresistible odor of crab cakes and fish wafted over the marina each day!

        Can’t say enough about Legacy Harbor Marina in Ft. Meyers. Stayed a week there several months ago and thought it was in the top ten for the last 10,000 miles of traveling.

      16. Alan Lloyd -  August 27, 2009 - 2:07 pm

        There are two excellent marinas in Ft. Myers. We have stayed at both. Fort Myers Municipal Yacht Basin is close to downtown and the busy waterfront. Legacy Harbor Marina, (formerly Centennial Harbor) is a couple of blocks from downtown but closer to a new Publix and closer to the Edison Home. The Post Office is midway between the two. If you plan to leave your boat unattended then Legacy looks more secure but we left our boat for six weeks at the Yacht Basin with no problem.
        The Fort Myers area is convenient to Southwest Florida Airport (RSW) where you may book a flight or rent a car. There is taxi service to the airport.

        Legacy Harbour Marina in Ft. Myers is a great cruising destination. The floating docks make for easy on and off your boat. Dave O’Connor, the talented Harbourmaster will try to put transients on C dock with a side-to tie up. Dave says that they specialize in boating clubs and will work with them for a discounted rate. Even their regular rates are reasonable by today’s prices.
        Legacy has recently taken over the operation of the adjacent motel, so you can get rid of rowdy crew members for the night.
        The marina has clean showers and a boater’s lounge. They just installed wireless internet for the docks. For those who enjoy cooking out, they keep the gas filled for the stainless grill.
        A must stop when you overnight at Legacy is Bennetts Fresh Brew which is just a short walk away. They roast and brew their own gourmet coffee. The best part of the trip is the hand cut donuts. They are truly out of this world! Don’t miss it.
        The marina is conveniently located to downtown restaurants and grocery stores for reprovisioning.
