Well maintained concrete floating docks in the heart of downtown Tampa. Excellent service from Dockmaster Jason and crew. We will be back!

Jason was awesome in getting us settled and docked up

We booked into a slip at the Tampa Convention Center. The docks here are nice floating concrete docks and you are just steps away from the Trolley and many restaurants. The issue here is a lack of security. We've been here two nights and had people board our boat around 2:00 AM both nights. Night one was a group of 4 young men, who we think were trying to steal items from the center console beside us and jumped on our swim platform. Last night, a couple decided that it would be fun to have the girl lie on the bow of our boat for a photo shoot. (our main bedroom is in the bow). There is no security gate, not even a sign saying private and the dock is shared with paddle boats, rental boats, booze cruise, and tiki boats. The dockmaster is said that the Convention Center is in charge of security, when we called Security last night, they said they would "send someone to check on the docks." We were up for over an hour calming back down, and we never saw them. So, nice facilities, but poor security. There are other marinas in the area, not quite as convenient, but I'd give them some consideration.

Really nice staying downtown...dock hands were great.

Jason, Dockmaster, and his team were superb in assisting us in getting into our slip and making sure we were taken care of. We needed to adjust our schedule and Jason made it very easy for us. We had a great time, and look forward to coming again.

The service was amazing- they have done a great job in creating a more "marina" like experience. Location is perfect -walkable to all attractions and great restaurants.

Very helpful and friendly crew on the docks. Docks are clean and safe.

Great dock attendant's, friendly. Riverwalk is a must when in Tampa.

by carnsie1 on Mar 13, 2020
Very nice docks and good location. They should increase the number of toilets available to boaters and make arrangements for 24-7 access for boaters.

There are many good things about this marina. The staff is great and deserves 5+ stars. The marina is reasonably priced for such a strategical location. The facilities are well kept. Tampa has done a good job of policing the area and while caution is still required I seldom feel threatened. I hate giving this only a 3 star rating after all it is a downtown location and you can't blame a dog for having fleas but do not expect to get any sleep as this place. It is loud!! Otherwise, if you come to party, or do the night life thing, or as we do to add a little fun to a business meeting and don't mind forgoing sleep this is the place. We'll come again and after we pull out find a nice secluded anchorage where we can saw some logs.

Making my reservation there was no feed back regarding power or no power. The site did not show docks with power full and docks without power available and no cost difference for non powered docks. Docks have no security and no shower no dedicated restrooms. The price is not reflective of services available. Location is central and convenient to many entertainment venues.

Jason the Dockmaster was very accommodating and helpful. And very pleasant stay

by rdianaaz on Feb 16, 2020
Was crowded that day, but fit me in and helped tie up boat.

by dfinn on Feb 15, 2020
Great service from Jason and his team. Plenty of loud music lasting late into the night from surrounding water front bars but that is to be expected in a downdown location on a Friday night. We will definitely be back!

it was a great time, everyone was great help.

Great place fo a one night stay, all happening around the area,

by victorl on Jan 02, 2020
Thank you for your service!!!

by kwhite8503 on Dec 16, 2019
Docks are clean and orderly. No security however in spite of significant activity downtown there were very few visitors other than those for the vendors on the doc. People from the paddle boat rental and a tour boat operator helped us dock as there was a pretty good crosswind blowing us off the dock. Never saw the Dockmaster or any one official or in charge. Went to the Dockmaster's office/booth and no one was there so I Left a card. We just had to guess at how things operate and where things were. It would be good to have a welcome packet with some information, guide to the area and riverwalk etc. I am sure some local restaurants would throw in some coupons to get you there. Still, overall a good experience.

Josh and the guys are great on the dock. Pros: (1) A Lot of Action and Entertainment. (2) Nice Concrete Floating Docks. Cons: (1) A Lot of Late Night Noise from Entertainment. (2) No Marina Services

by dianeandedward on Dec 15, 2019
Everything was perfect. Jason was very accommodating. It is a wonderful location.

by edboud on Dec 15, 2019
Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Even called the morning of arrival to give slip assignment. Great location for riverfront, nightlife and Amalie.

Great stay..........

by fhtt18202 on Nov 10, 2019
Excellent marina! It is nice to be able to reserve a slip. Dock hands are friendly and Dockmaster is very accommodating. Good protection, an occasional swell from wind and boat traffic, but not uncomfortable at all. Music plays till 3 am on the weekend and NE wind can blow it right to your boat. But other than that, the vibe is very enjoyable!

Dock staff was extremely helpful. Location was perfect. Lots to do and lots to see
