People told us the water was shallow but when we came in (tide table said we were 1' above mean low water) we never saw less than 7' of depth. The marina staff in the office were very helpful and knowledgable. The same for the yard/dock crew.... (Jimmie is the best ever). The marina is easy to find. Turn to starboard just east of "50" and stay between the red and greens. There's a sign on the left about 200' into the channel that tells you to turn left into Turtle Cove. This facility is really nice but it's a 'work in progress'. Ed the owner says Phase 3 will be done in the spring of 2014. Right now it's kind of a hike to the Clubhouse (where the pool, hot-tub, showers and laundry are) but they'll be building new heads, showers and laundry this year within feet of the transient docks. We travel thousands of miles a year on our sailboat and this is one of our favorite marinas. It's a couple of hundred yard walk to 'old Tarpon Springs' and the Sponge Docks. Oh, the best 'non-greek' food in town is at Rusty Bellies. One note, the Greek people in town will completely ignore you if they're speaking greek to their friends..... they'll take your money but you can tell you're a bother :-(
I moved my 38 ft sail boat a year and a half ago from Boston. Fell in love with the location and the management of the Marina. 4 months ago it was time to have the bottom painted and sand blasted. The results were outstanding in every detail. Sending my guy I know from the Boston area Jay (diver) to clean the bottom 3 months later he was amazed of what a great job they had done. That is rather the true compared to the review from Heather who instead of trying to do a good job cleaning bottoms of boats is spending time badmouthing a marina. Other marinas keep your eyes open for her.
-Dock staff is cool -Getting my boat in the water is not an issue -Limited to 30 minutes on the work rack during the weekend which is not convenient -General Manager broke my transducer the first day I was there and offered nothing in return for doing so. Personally, I believe the staff as well as patrons are not fans of him at all. -Had issues with my invoices that lead to a headache trying to resolve
First boat and first time at a marina. Kept my boat here for a few months, then left to boat down south. I was mistaken to think that all marinas operate like Anclote Harbors. The service at Anclote is second to none, the staff is great, the facility is clean. They pay attention to details. I was spoiled, then I left to another marina for a few months, and couldnt wait to get back.
Ran a ground just before Christmas. Boat was towed to them. Next day it was out of the water and inspected. They started working on it that day. It had a bent shaft bent propeller and broken stanchion. All was repaired while I went home for Christmas. Had the boat back in the water when I came back. Very accommodating, great work at reasonable prices. Would recommend them highly.
Been a sailor since 1982 I have been in many Marina’s through the years. Mar-Marina has been nothing like any other. Friendly people and thriving to please. Did a paint job and the bottom 6 months ago. Amazing. Thank you guys.
mar-marina.net is one of the best kept secrets. Family size and treated me and all boaters as friends with excellent service and repairs
