Balls are great. Water and trash, even doggie bags available at dinghy dock. Shower facilities too! Do Wish they would enlarge the dinghy dock though. But glad your back Fort Myers Beach and Matanza pass mooring field.

Love using Dockwa and Ft Myers is great location and mooring balls very good and we always stop here when possible

The process worked well going through Dockwa. It’s good to know you can still call and speak to Patty if you have any questions. Plenty balls available 4/14/24.

The current was fun but all new moorings made it a good stop

Great to have FMB mooring field back in action. Great folks and service.

And the current works against each other, the more ball is right up against the hall of the boat. I know this is picky, however, is there any way to put a rubber bumper around the middle of the ball?

Everything is fine, staying longer than expected. Is there pumpout services?

We were assigned ball 77 but there was a boat already moored there. We moored on another ball. However mooring is well protected and quiet with several restaurants close by

Exactly what was expected

Mooring balls in excellent shape, showers and restrooms clean, and plenty of fun with the businesses that have opened! Added attraction we were able to listen to High Tide!

There are a lot of positives about the Mooring field. The balls are in very good shape with numbers that are easy to read. The dinghy dock is convenient to many good restaurants and bars. The staff is always very helpful. In particular, Patrick met us as we walked off the dinghy dock the first time and showed us where all the facilities were. The last time we went in, he was standing on the dock and helped tie us up. We had a bag of trash that he took from us and disposed of. There are some negatives. The website seems to be out of date, and should be updated to show exactly where the facilities and the dinghy dock are located. Although it is marked as a no wake zone, many boats go speeding through the mooring field. There is a constant battle between the effects of current and wind, so the mooring balls end up banging against the hull of the boat. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to fix this problem, but if you know it is going to happen, you will be more prepared for when it does.

Awesome place to stop and visit, easy in and out , not expensive with brand new mooring balls.

by Darrell J. - Verified user on Mar 28, 2024
Mooring ball was easy to locate. Lead was in good shape and there was plenty of swing room. Dinghy dock was adequate and made accessing the local area easy.

Amazing! Austin was a real help! Wish they had guest wifi but all in all perfect!

by Tim V. - Verified user on Mar 20, 2024
The staff was very nice and helpful, although they leave at 2 pm each day. THey come out to your boat for pumpouts. SHort dinghy ride to dinghy dock between the Mantanzss Inn and Nervous Nellies, both of which are open and pretty good with live music. Also three other restaurants acroos the other side with a dinghy dock at Bills, the place with the 42’ boat halfway up the dock, compliments of hurricane Ian. We stayed two nights and one night was windy and very bumpy, I think because the winds and the tide currents didn’t get along. Short walk to showers, laundry and the Ft Myers Beach which is coming back after Ian with much construction going on. We would stay here again.

Great mooring field. Austin is amazing and always very professional and willing to help everyone. We've been staying in the mooring field since 2016

by Ann D. - Verified user on Mar 19, 2024
The balls were clean and you could easily read the numbers.

by Robert H. on Mar 16, 2024
This was our first visit back since Hurricane Ian. They have expanded mooring area now to encompass all the way out to in front of Pink Shell resort. The mooring balls are new so felt very comfortable spending the night out on one during our transit to Key West. Kudos to the friendly staff and the team out at Moss marina who got us out of a jam when boat developed some shift issues after fueling. Great place to stay. Wake from traffic was bearable, but we were there on a Wednesday night off-season, would expect a lot more during a busy weekend.

The mooring field is back and better than ever! Captain Austin and his team are doing a fantastic job! We truly enjoyed our stay!
