        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?
        Thanks

        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 (http://www.stansidlehour.net/) 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.

        Elmer the dockmaster is very helpful. Showers are air conditioned and clean. Floating docks are very nice, the entire set-up is first class.
        Upon registering you are handed a courtesy card to the Marco Island Yacht Club adjacent to this property. Impressive building, but a word of caution, if you are planning on eating dinner at the restaurant, we recommend you call ahead for reservations. We arrived on a Wednesday (dinner special is lobster tails) and assumed we could get a table. Well, had to eat at the boat.

        We spent three nights at RMRM recently. Nice floating docks, great fuel and dock prices and a helpful staff. It is a short walk to a hardware store, convenience store and restaurant. A taxi company offers complementary RT transport to selected local restaurants – a nice service.

        We had a WONDERFUL dinner at Snook Inn. Probably one of the best we have had the whole trip and spent the night at Marco River Marina. $2.25 per foot took on 50 gal. of fuel at $2.95 diesel. No discounts. We met friends for breakfast at the Sand Bar and did a quick Publix run. You could walk it from the marina, but it is several blocks.

        Stayed here for 2 nights the week before Christmas. Very nice top shelf facility for the reasonable rate of $1.90 per foot. Brand new floating docks, free pumpout at the slip, free laundry facility and a very friendly helpful staff. Highly recommended. Try Lee B Fish (in walking distance) for excellent fish tacos.

        With the dawn of a new day, the Esplanade Marina Association has not yet complied with the request by Commercial Realty Corporation ( CRC ), the commercial owner of the 8 public slips to remove the restrictive docking signage. I don’t know how much longer this will be in limbo. There is some indication they may be intransigent about the issue. The City of Marco Island and CRC seem to be in agreement that the current docking restrictions do not conform to the Land Use Summary of the 1998 Development Agreement. We’ll keep you informed.

        After being advised by the Marco Is. city attorney, that the Esplanade Marina was in violation of PUD agreements by restricting public docking at the Marina in Smokehouse Bay, The management entity of the Esplanade complex has advised the marina staff to cease enforcing the restriction that public dock users can only use the dock while patronizing Esplanade businesses. The signs should be removed shortly and the city of Marco should be accessible from the Esplanade dock. The “Dumas Gang” of the successful Marco anchoring challenge participated in this effort by researching documents and bringing them to the city’s notice. The City of Marco Island was on the boaters side this time.

        This is one of the best small town harbors in Florida. When entering Smokehouse Bay from the north, keep on the west side of the bay. There is a narrow, north-south 3′ MLW mud shoal in the center of the north half of the bay. The shoal can be circumnavigated on the edges of the bay. Depths are mostly 9-12′ in slimy mud; be prepared to hose down when retrieving your ground tackle. Allow your anchor to set a while before setting as the mud is soft and deep. There is a dinghy dock at the south end and you are within walking distance of anything you desire; West Marine, hardware store, Winn-Dixie ( dinghy dock ), rental car, many restaurants, propane, etc. On island taxi’s are about $7. We’ve lived here 34 years and if we didn’t live here, this would be our premier cruising destination now that anchoring is unrestricted.

        One requirement of using the Naples City moorings is that you get a pump-out first at the City Dock–no exceptions, even though we had been pumped out the previous day at Fort Myers Beach. We understand that this is a city requirement.

        Docked there earlier this year on our trip from Ft Myers to Islamorada, very nice stop, friendly people and the trolly ride is well worth the history and the opulence that exists there.

        Naples is our home port. The city docks are an excellent location. You would be within walking distance of 5th Ave. And 3rd Street for shopping and restaurants. A great foodie type grocery store and hardware store are a short bike ride away. West Marine and Enterprise just a couple miles away. By the time you walk down 5th you are only a few blocks from the beach. Our favorite restaurant (Bleu Provence and their new wine store) is within walking distance.
        Naples is a MUST stop.

        Had a great time in Naples! They have a limit to 4 nights for the mooring balls (something to do with the EPA owning the bay bottom, kind of a strange story if you ask me) but we got to spend 8 nights total on the Naples mooring balls. (Left for one night in between and got another 4 nights.)

        **CAUTION** The mooring balls DO NOT have a regular pennant on them. (It’s a rope loop that is about 5 inches long attached to the ball). You will not be able to pick it up with a boat hook and the dockmaster’s office for some reason does not inform you of this. When we are aboard when other boats have come in we have used our dinghy to help them.

        When we went back the second time one of us got in the dinghy when we were close and slowed way down so that we could “walk” with the dinghy forward, grab the line we had attached to the cleat, string it through the mooring pennant and then back aboard. Fairly simple if you know about it ahead of time.

        Naples is a great town to visit. There are a number of great restaurants within walking distance of the docks. (Bleu Provence is a stone’s throw away and has a great early dining special, $24.95 between 5-6pm for an appetizer, entree, and glass of wine. The food is first class, you won’t be dissapointed.)

        Definitely can recommend Naples as a cruising destination, Enjoy!

        Went to Naples and spent 2 nights there at the Naples City Dock. Nothing to complain about. The staff was very nice and the price with Boat/US was 1.50/ft. The Gordon river did not present any challenges as depths were atleast 7′ the whole way.

        Last winter we had the distinct pleasure of spending some time at Naples City Marina. Dockmaster Marlene and her crew are most professional, helpful, and most of all welcoming. What most cruisers do not know is that the City of Naples installed a mooring field, and for just $10 per night you are within walking distance to great restaurants (quite a few of which were offering two dinners and a bottle of wine for $30), concerts and other entertainment. The dinghy dock is located a short distance from the mooring field, the showers are spotless, and you can still do a load of laundry–wash and dry–for $2. Marlene wanted me to get the word out that Naples is no longer an unfriendly place to visit. Another easily missed attraction is the Boat House Restaurant located at the end of the Cove I! nn. From 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. they have 2 for 1 cocktails, a bar full of cheese and other goodies, as well as hot hors d’oeuvres for free. In the past we have avoided Naples, but never again!

        I have always stayed at the city docks but my last trip down there around Aug 1 I stayed at the Naples Boat Club. Much nicer then the city docks with floating docks, just as close to down town and about the same price. Fuel is cheaper at the Boat Club and they sell Valvtec diesel (less smoke).

        At this time there are slips available for long term lease and plenty of room for transient boaters. There is a free pump out on the dock.Only minor repairs can be made at the city Dock and these must be from approved contractors. Minor bottom maintenance is still allowed but no boats can undergo major bottom cleaning at this location. (major scraping and cleaning) regular bottom maintenance from monthly divers is still allowed at this time.

        Today we took a leisurely cruise inland up to Naples and are at the Naples City Marina (no mooring balls as stated in the cruising guide) $1.50 per foot with Boat US disc. HOWEVER, they included our dingy (which is on the back of boat) in the footage. Never had that happen before! On the way up we have NEVER seen so many boats, they were everywhere! People yelling at each other on the radios, using not so nice words, ripping and tearing around…WELCOME to South Florida boating. This is Wednesday, what do you think it will be like on the weekend !!!
        That’s all for meow,?

        Nice high end marina to wait out a storm
        We needed to get a slip for a couple of nights due to an upcoming cold front approaching which would make the Gulf crossing quite treacherous. We called around and found this marina/boat club, spoke with dockmaster Frank who said he had a slip available. We arriived and Frank was there to greet us and guide us into our slip. The boat club is actually private slips individually owned but they will rent to transients if space allows. We felt dwarfed by the mega yachts surrounding us. The clubhouse & showers were very nice, something you would find at a high end yacht club. They have a small pool, and laundry to boot. We had a wonderful stay here. Walking distance to Tin City with t-shirt & trinket shopping and a few restaurants to choose from. Fuel, ice, water & pumpouts available too. Great stay, and worth the price for a safe floating dock to ride out the storm.

        Naples Boat Club is a deluxe facility run by down to earth, friendly and efficient people. Stayed there for a week. Close to most things in Naples including City Dock and Tin City. Wharf restaurant has very good food and is reasonably priced. Our GB 42 was about the smallest boat in the place but we were treated like we were a hundred footer. Heated, waterfall pool and great showers. Free washer and dryer.
        The Club is run by the same nice people who own American Marine and Fuel at the same location – Donn and Judy Shulte. This is a cracker jack operation. Very clean. Easy in and out. Discount on fuel if you stay in the Club.
