Nice marina with everything you need, and the tide is really not that bad. Super convenient (walking distance) to downtown St A. We had a nice stay.

Really enjoyed our stay. Staff is super nice and friendly. Nice floating docks with good power. (Some are in need of repair from the last storm, but they are working on fixing them). The wifi can be sketchy on the docks, but you can get good WiFi in the hotel lobby or bar.The view is outstanding. The social hour is a nice plus. The snacks are good and you get to meet not only fellow boaters, but hotel guests as well.

The hotel & Marina looks like it’s recently been refurbished very nice. It wasn’t crowded at all when we were there the currents are strong and crazy and they don’t tell you this when you make the reservation, they call you you the morning of your reservation, they want you to come during slack tide. That would be good information to have the day before. Not the morning you’re leaving for the marina . It’s right beside the bridge, you can walk over to go to everything in Saint Augustine maybe five minute walk.

Getting a slip was easy, great proximity to hotel. Very good experience.

Such a convenient marina to dock the boat, stay in the motel, and enjoy St Augustine. This was our second time visiting. Admittedly, the marina lacks a fuel dock/pump out, and the staff is more focused on the motel operations than the marina. Be sure to come and go at slack tide to avoid the strong currents. For us the location is wonderful as it is a short walk over the bridge to all of the restaurants and shops in St Augustine. If you want to rent bikes, go with Anastasia Bike rentals - they will drop off and pick up at the marina / motel.

very good location , very nice and helpful people at the desk but please be aware there are no dock hands and the current is very strong you'll want to dock at slack tide. we would love to come back some time !!!
Marina Response:
Glad you enjoyed your stay. We do have 3 dock hands available upon request. We do always suggest that it is best to dock at slack tide which is 30 to 60 minutes past the published high or low tide. Next time please request docking assistance ahead of time and we will be glad to assist you.

Love the small community atmosphere and the friendly staff. We will be back!

This is a non staffed marina and depends heavily on dockwa for all its communications and as a result can not communicate in a timely manner if there is weather or other pressing concerns. We did attempt to cancel a reservation request before our reservation was accepted- while it was still pending-but no one received our message. Instead it was accepted and treated as inside the non refundable window even though our request had been turned in long before. If you have any thought that you may stay for 10 days then try to book for one month because the cost is the same and you will be protected for a longer time if you do not get the weather window you are looking for. The monthly rate is a fair deal. The terms and communication style from the owner and dockwa are all intended to keep you guessing and spending. This is not uncommon in St. Augustine where there is an incredible shortage of dockage and services for boaters. The current is incredible at the end of the dock and quite unsettling. The spa was not functioning during our stay. The lighting was not good and I did hurt myself and walked with a limp for a few days due to no lighting on some of the steps in the dark so be careful. There are some "sleeper" steps so watch out. There is no staff or experienced dock hands to take your lines so current is especially a consideration. The owner did make sure there were many willing dock renters on hand to help when arrived but they were not skilled and we had to make two attempts. So "A" for effort but... again... not really a marina. This is not run like a marina but like a hotel so be advised. The happy hour is pretty neat with modest free food each day and good company from the denizens of the dock. There are good restaurants nearby. The hotel staff are kind but the owner is not interested in your challenges and not a presence on site but a presence in the sense that she is very much in charge. Just an odd vibe. We might come back. But just sort of unsettling. Rock on denizens of Marker 8!

Nice, clean dock. Easy access. Current isn't that bad if you know how to handle your vessel. The whole river has a strong current, so if you can't handle the marina, you can't handle St. Augustine.

It was great we had a nice time.

by Craig H. - Verified user on Dec 12, 2023
The facility is nice but the rate is significantly higher than the City Marina. I was assigned a slip with a partially blocked entry. Waited for slack tide to back out but there was a strong south west wind. Banged into the dock and scratched the hull even with assistance of three people. This slip should only be used for a row boat. No marina dock hands unless you call and sxhedule one.

Wonderful little marina. Great facilities, wonderful staff, and daily social hour to meet other marina and hotel guests. Close walking distance to downtown and several other restaurants. We loved our stay and will definitely be back if in the area again. No pump out at the marina, but Code Brown pump out service will come to your slip via boat for a small fee.
