        When you arrive at either Marker 1 or the Dunedin Municipal Marina be sure to askfor your welcome packet if the dockmaster forgets. If you’re looking for peace and quiet try the Caladesi Island State Park Marina. Caladesi has one of the best beaches in all of North America, or so it’s been rated. Lots going on all around town; restaurants, shopping, farmer’s market everyFriday/Saturday.
        Dunedin is right on the Pinellas Bike Trail, midway between Tarpon Springs and St. Pete. The Trail is an easy way to get around. On the weekends trythe Jolly Trolley for transportation between Tarpon Springs and Clearwater Beach.

        Dunedin Municipal Marina is convenient to restaurants & shopping, just a 2 block walk to the main downtown area. We liked it so much here we moved from Illinois to Dunedin while on the loop earlier this year.
        From Anclote Key follow the ICW south to G”7″, from Clearwater Inlet follow the ICW north to G”5″.

        Wife, dog and I have stayed a dozen times at friendly Dunedin Marina in the past decade. Dockmaster Bill is great and will assign an inside protected slip if available. The transient slips are at the entrance and can be tricky with current and uncomfortable with strong wind from the west so be sure to ask for an inside slip. The town has a great nightlife, all within walking distance.

        Subject: Duneden marina
        Message: Dunedin Marina is well located and shelterd however it seems always fully rented with no permanent transient slips. They may have an opening if someone is out but advanced reservations are not possible according to the dock master as of last year.

        Cruising News: We were able to get a transient slip at this marina for the December 6 boat parade. Only needed a couple of days advance notice. The harbor master was extremely friendly and helpful.

        When making your Gulf Crossing plans, please consider staying at Marker 1 Marina! We’re only 800 yards off the ICW in Dunedin, FL (halfway between Tarpon Springs and Clearwater). We have good power, good water, well maintained docks, 24 hour security, and a well-trained staff that’s eager to please. Even better: AGLCA members receive fuel and dockage discounts! Looper transient dockage is only $1/ft/day, $5/ft/week and $11/ft/month, and includes water, power, cable TV, and WiFi. You’ll find a grocery store, pharmacy, bank, dentist, dry cleaner and several restaurants all within a half mile of the marina. And if you’re staying with us around December 7th, plan on taking part in our annual Christmas Boat Parade and join us for a Cajun Christmas Shrimp Boil!

        Now you’ll be able to enjoy that same level of friendliness and service at a new location a few miles farther south! Marker 1 Marina, (http://www.marker1marina.com – my new home in Dunedin, FL) is located on the [Western Florida] ICW just north of Clearwater and is a wonderful stop along the Loop. With grocery stores, restaurants, banks and thrift stores just a few blocks away, you’ll find just about everything you need close by. Caladesi Island State Park (recently named the Best Beach in America) is just a short kayak or dingy ride away. Meanwhile the town of Dunedin is proud of their Scottish roots and has a diverse selection of bars, restaurants and shops that just beg to be explored. And with 300 feet of lay along transient dock, private showers and 24 hour security, your boat will feel right at home, too.
        I look forward to sharing my new hometown with many of you in the coming years!

        While on our trek home from Florida to Nashville, TN my wife came down with a very bad case of vertigo. What to do? We decided that we would have to cut short our journey but where? We ended up staying at Port Tarpon Marina.
        The management of that marina went above and beyond what we could have asked them to do. Not only did they make sure that we had transportation to and from town but also the doctor and the pharmacies. The beauty of this marina is not only the management but it is the first marina on the port side as you approach Tarpon Springs, the water is over 9 feet at the dock, so there is no worry about running aground. The marina was clean, etc. I can not say enough good things about Port Tarpon and the crew.
        After talking with them they are now members of the AGLCA so if you are going to stop at Tarpon Springs, please stop at Port Tarpon Marina.

        Turtle Cove Marina in Tarpon Springs was our northern most stop for three nights. On our first night the town was celebrating “Night in the Islands”; a very romantic Greek food themed evening where several restaurants filled the street with long tables and strung up small overhead lights. Odyssey, one of the best Greek bands in Florida, supplied soothing, sensual, traditional Greek music. While some people danced in the streets, others formed a large circle where local ladies instructed them on traditional Greek dances. All this, while the wait staff continually delivered tasty Greek food and wine to the large crowd made this a truly memorable evening. Over the next two days members were on their own to explore the town. One night, we gathered at Hellas Restaurant and Bakery. Everyone was able to select a Greek dish to suit their desire. Several dishes of Saganaki (flaming cheese) were delivered to our tables as shouts of Opa made the meal festive.
        Turtle Cove Marina was very accommodating to our club, dock hands were prompt, helpful, and attentive. One night, with a threat of rain, the marina opened the lounge for us as Phil and Gary prepared their famous fish bites. We also used the lounge the next morning where the cruise leaders prepared a pancake breakfast. One note here: a guest on a member boat slipped on the ramp of the dock, and fell, injuring his leg. An ambulance was called, and he was transported to a local hospital for x-rays. Fortunately there was just severe bruising with nothing broken.

        We’re at Turtle Cove Marina right now. We came to Tarpon Springs to have some work done on our 1976 Pearson 365 Ketch (sailboat). We’ve been here a few weeks and really like Turtle Cove Marina. Like others have said, the staff is friendly and very knowledgable, the location is very convenient to Olde Tarpon Springs (the sponge dock, the restaurants, etc) and is only a few blocks from both the Jolly Trolley (runs on weekends) and the Pinellas County Transit (runs every day) bus stops. The marina entrance was dredged recently and when we came in with the tide about 1 foot above Mean Low Water we never saw less than 6 feet (we draw 4’6″). The marina is a ‘work in progress’ with all phases to be completed this year. This includes a restaurant on the water (about a 5 minute walk from the transient docks) and a new Heads, Showers and Laundry Building ‘on the Island’ (it’s not really an island anymore but thats where the Transient Docks are). Oh, and rumour has it there’ll be an additional Tiki Bar there too.
        Dockage Fees:
        Right now it’s $1.50 a foot and that includes electric! Also, when you stay 5 days you get 2 more days free. When you stay that second week (and again, when you pay for 5 you get 2 free) you also get the next 2 weeks free!!!
        Yep, you pay for 10 days and end up staying for 30. (such a deal!)
        As I understand it from Ed, the owner, when the constuction is done and all the phases are completed he will probably increase the rate per foot but he said he will still have great discounts for transient cruisers.

        We stayed at Turtle Cove 2 years ago and are looking at returning for a week in just a couple of days. Top notch marina, top notch people.

        We have been tied up here for 2 days since our crossing from Carabelle. This is probably the friendliest Marina we have ever docked at. Check in included a tour of the town in a 8 passenger golf cart. The channel can be a challenge at low tide but easy to navigate. We may stay an extra day so we have another chance at the great Greek food.

        Let me chime in on Turtle Cove. I found it in a cruising magazine while we were sitting in Steinhatchee. We had been to Tarpon Springs twice before by car and knew that we did not want to stay at the city dock area. There was always too much traffic on the water there so we jumped at the chance to get in a more secluded spot. You have to be careful getting back to it and should holler at a local as you move down the canal off the Anclote River to ask about which side the locals hug. Turtle Cove was a treasure. They have this unique circular island with slips all around. I don’t know if it is manmade or not. We could walk or ride our bikes about two blocks and we were at our all time favorite restaurant “Mama’s Greek Restaurant” where they let us bring our bikes inside because they were worried someone might
        bother them. Mama’s is on the street behind the main drag. We spent several days at Turtle Cove, ate three times at Mama’s and if I could revisit any marina on the Loop it would be Turtle Cove.

        We stayed at Turtle Cove in Tarpon Springs, just after our crossing last January. We agree with every nice thing that’s been said about that marina. I would add that there’s a nice bike path, the Pinellas trail, that you can access not particularly far from the marina, and it goes all the way to Clearwater if I remember correctly (but be REALLY careful about riding in front of a stopped car–it might suddenly decide to take off!!!!!) Also, try Hellas Greek restaurant, and order flaming “oopa” cheese! Tarpon Springs was a fun stop, and the marina handy to all it has to offer.

        Sea Biscuit here for several nights. We draw 4.6 feet, and in our case, we can only come and go at, or near, high tide. We almost sit on the bottom in our slip, but not quite. A very nice marina, we like it, just that the water depth at low tide is probably about 3 to 3.5 feet total depth at lower tides during the approach, 5 to 6 at higher tides. Easily doable, but requires a slow and careful approach, which is necessary anyway due to busy traffic, close quarters, and some narrow channels. Enjoy, as the hospitality is tops! Perfect location and excellent security.

        Visited the first week of Feb. Nice marina w/ floating docks. Looong walk to laundry and showers. New showers planned near docks. Problem being water depth. I draw 57″. At MLLW I had 32″ under boat (by lead line). Probably the shallowest dock in the marina. Poor choice by dockmaster. Great location to visit sponge dock area with restaurants and shops (two blocks) and also the downtown with cathedral, upscale antique shops and historical buildings. Approach channel had 6′ spots near high tide. Timing is important for deeper draft craft.

        I can only endorse Cambren’s remarks about Turtle Cove Marina.
        Our sailing club, Hudson Beach Yacht Club, has sponsored several weekend cruises to this marina. I took a “women-only” crew there in June. We have always received the best service and enjoyed the Tiki Hut, pool, and bar. The shower facilities are exceptionally clean!
        One tip: Try Rusty Bellies restaurant, just a 5 minute walk from the marina, for their good food and fun entertainment.

        We stayed at Turtle Cove after a rough night at Anclote Key (the winds were from the East). Having previously stayed at the City Docks with it’s strong current, I was pleased to find this sheltered marina with floating docks. The staff was very accommodating and the facilities were clean, the pool was great. Too many good restaurants to name within walking distance, but try Mama’s – you won’t be disappointed. I will definitely return to Turtle Cove.

        This is indeed a nice spot with wonderful amenities as described in the post below. Ed Spaeth the GM / owner is a very welcoming individual. It was a real treat to be met & welcomed by Ed & his team after our long crossing from Carrabelle.
        Note that the approaches to this marina are not as difficult as it would appear from the posts below. Proceed up the Anclote River to red 50 and turn to Stbd and then closely hug the port shoreline passing closely to the vessels tied to shore. Avoid the shallows on the Stbd side of the channel as you enter.
        There are a number of larger boats in the marina area that likely draw more than 5 feet.
        From the marina it is a short walk into the center of town with grocery stores and bars. The floating dock area where we had tied up was very nice and new. It was however quite a long walk maybe 200 yards to the showers, laundry & clubhouse facilities
        The rate of $ .75 per foot (per day?) for weekly stays for Loopers as posted below is incorrect. The correct rate is $7.50 per foot per week. That meant that instead of $199 per week for our 38 footer we were looking at $285 per week. We required a stay of between 2 & 3 weeks. On the very positive side If you pay for two weeks you can stay the next two free. Sort of like pay for 5 days stay for the next 2 free and equally pay for 2 weeks and stay free for the next two weeks I believe?
        The Looper daily rate is 1.50 per day per foot which is a discounted rate from the normal $2.00 per foot per day rate

        Lisa and I are docked (for a week) at Turtle Cove Marina in Tarpon Springs Florida. Based on prior posts on this forum, I thought I’d add our two cents worth as it relates to our positive opinion. Turtle Cove is the place to be in Tarpon Springs if you like these amenities:
        1. New floating docks
        2. Free washer and dryer
        3. Easy walk to sponge docks, restaurants and downtown
        4. $1.50 per foot or discounted weekly stay (we’re paying .75 per foot for
        a week)
        5. Hot tub & swimming pool
        6. Free pumps outs
        7. Marina will also make arrangements for a fuel truck to come to your boat
        8. Free truck and trailer storage (we have a trailerable Ranger Tug)

        I’ve always been a great fan of the [Tarpon Springs] municipal marina because it’s so close to the main drag on the island. However Turtle Cove sounds almost too good to be true. I know “the Judge” wouldn’t lie to us. After three times at the municipal dock, with its problems just to be close to “Hellas Greek Resturant” its Turtle Cove next time!!!
        Thanks Judge!

        We are presently at the best marina we have encountered so far and that is saying something. Many friends had warned us about the perils of getting into the city dock and the poor facilities and then I saw a chance posting about a looper who had stumbled onto Turtle Cove Marina. I looked at it on Google Earth and said why not. You ease up the Anclote River to Red 50 and turn right just past the marker. Next take the first left and be sure to hug the boats on the port side through the turn as there is a shallow spot. You will dead end at Turtle Cove which has an artificial island in a cove with slips all around . Floating docks, great electrical. I have never seen better pedestals in a marina. It all looks brand new. Secure facility with locked gates. You get a key. They have a clubhouse and pool too. Gas at pumps and diesel with one day notice delivered direct to your boat by a truck that drives on the island and backs up to your slip. Ed is the owner and Peter is the dockmaster. The marina is one short block behind the town. No current, no wind, no problem. $1.50 per foot for loopers and BoatUS. Pumpouts at every slip. Can you believe this? And it is all a hidden treasure. You can call them at 727-934-2202. If you want to see it on Google Earth it is at 827 Roosevelt Blvd. I give it an A+.

        We stayed at Tarpon Springs City Marina the nights of 21 and 22 November 2009.
        There are only four transient slips available so call ahead for availability.
        We were disappointed with the narrow, unsteady finger piers. We felt uncomfortable when using them.
        In addition, the finger piers are relatively short and could pose a problem for a boat with a side entrance.
        The rest rooms are open to the public during the day. A $5 deposit will get a key to enter after hours. If there are showers there, we failed to find them.
        The location is great for shopping, eating, and sightseeing but noisy as it is very near the Route 19A bridge over the river.
        However, the noise drops after dark as traffic lessens.
        A Winn Dixie Supermarket is a pleasant, but long, walk. Walk South on 19A to East Athens street, go left to Safford Avenue, then right on Safford.
        Return to 19A by turning right onto West Morgan Street. Winn Dixie is on the East side of 19A to the left.
        Safford has a pedestrian/bicycle walk in the median with benches placed here and there.

        We were in Tarpon Springs in May and stayed at the municiple marina. We draft 5′8″ and had no problems navigating up stream or down. We arrived early evening on the 15th and left the marina the afternoon of the 21st to anchor near the park at the river entrance. We spent two nights there o th ehook before heading to Apalachicola.
