Nice location for visiting Clearwater area, especially downtown and new Coachman Park amphitheater. We saw Chris Young in concert that was lots of fun. Downtown area has 3-4 restaurants within walking distance that are pretty good. Publix is a few more blocks away but not far. We have folding bikes so it was no problem. Wards Seafood market is great, about 2 miles but worth it. Beach trolley or ferry to Clearwater beach is also close. Floating docks and new marina office has new bathrooms and showers. All very clean. Our slip was in the north marina near the Freedom Boat Club and entrance gate. Very close to the office and bathrooms. However, the Freedom Boat Club clients frequently leave the gate ajar so security could be better, especially with clients frequently coming and going. There is possible option to stay in south marina that would be quieter. The wifi was poor even though we were very close to the office and antenna. Connecting was quick but constantly got dropped even when using our wifi extender.

The marina called us exactly at 1 p.m. to confirm our reservation and gave us last minute docking instructions. The marina staff were standing at our slip when we arrived. They made sure to chase off the rental boats which were blocking our slip. Check in took only 5 minutes. Our slip was only a short walk to Clear Sky a very popular restaurant and Capital Theater. We took in a concert (The Fixx) and walking home late at night felt very secure.
Things to watch out for at Marina. Be very aware of the strong current in the marina. The only other thing is sea birds and what they leave behind. LOL.

Always a great stop over, be cautious using inflatable fenders at the south side of the bridge at the HARBOR MARINA. SOME VERY SHARP STAINLESS STEEL brackets are PROTRUDING OUT just below the lip of the floating dock.

by David L. - Verified user on May 08, 2023
A very nice facility with nightly security and helpful staff. I was there for 5 nights. No gas at this dock but it’s available across the bay with a 10 minute run.
A few issues that need to be addressed. Facility parking is not close by. Construction of the amphitheater has taken all the few remaining close spaces requiring you to walk 2-3 blocks away to find vehicle parking. They need a designated loading zone near the dock office so you can easily unload your vehicle.
The dock needs better cart management at the dock entrances. Some days they were available and other days you had to search for them which can be a long walk back and forth. The dock is quite long and if you’re trying to carry items to load on the boat it’s pretty tedious.
The provided security app worked well for access.
I would definitely stay here again and will bring a folding cart next time for loading and unloading.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and for recognizing the helpful staff. We certainly understand the challenges during this construction, but the end is in sight. There is a planned weeklong celebration leading up the grand opening on July 4th. Once the park opens there will be a parking lot accessible from Pierce Street and a designated drop off location. The Harbormaster’s office will be centrally located between the North and South basin, and we will certainly make every effort to keep the dock carts collected and available. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to your next visit.

My boat is in Tarpon Springs. I have come down to the Clearwater Harbor Marina thru the ICW twice now. Docks are floating and in good shape, power poles and water are spaced out nicely and there is a pump out, although I did not use it. The marina is right next to Coachman Park which they are currently redoing. There is construction right now (3-25-2023), but when finished should be really nice. It is maybe a 10 minute walk to some nice restaurants and a Starbucks. The only negative I would say is the current and wind whips a lot. I am 47 foot and have docked on the outside dock near the ICW. Make sure to double up on your spring lines. It is a nice spot and you can watch all the boat traffic and party boats going in and out. I will stay there again soon.

The experience was nothing short of just anchoring out. The staff was not at the office when I hiked the like mile to go to the office as instructed. Then. On my almost all the way back another mile I ran into the employee only to get to hike back up there again for a very pitiful excuse for a key app to use the gate. This could have been handled remotely to day the least. In fact while I was downloading this app to be able to stay and use the key code app another customer was not as fortunate with the app and choose to move to another Marina and I certainly couldn’t blame him. We were also asked to dock on the exterior facewall just out of the channel as that was all available, which certainly didn’t look the case to me either.

Pump out on north dock was broken so we had to move the boat to the south dock to do a pump out. The Pelican (and other bird) crap on the dock is vicious and gross. We stayed a week and only saw someone hosing down the dock one time; however, the marina does have a hose at each electric stand if you want to clean up around your boat yourself. There were no dock hands to help us into our slip. It's a nice marina with good docks, but I consider it a bare bones experience.

Good concrete floating docks. Helpful staff.

This marina is in an ideal location in downtown Clearwater and within walking distance to hotels, restaurants, and shops. The staff members are helpful and courteous, and all the amenities are updated. Well protected and easy access in and out. Fuel dock is on the other side of the intercoastal but access and navigation seemed easy. There is major construction on going which limited available parking. While not the marina's fault, this construction contributed to 4 stars, not 5.
The marina mostly caters to larger vessels, but I truly appreciate them finding room for our boat (Pursuit 235 DC) over the July 4th Weekend. This was our first stay and we're looking forward to returning soon.

We stayed at the harbor marina a few weeks ago and wanted to leave a review about our stay. Construction in the park makes for a lot of walking & the Wi-Fi is awful but the staff was amazing! When we arrived we had an issue with the shore power and one of the other dock masters told us that it might be a few days before an electrician can come take a look, which is terrible when you need power and AC. Word got to Dockmaster Michelle about our power and she came out right away to reset the main breakers and we got the power we needed for the rest of our stay. We can’t thank her enough for that with this heat! She also recommended restaurants in the area for us (Tequilas was my favorite) and made sure we had everything we needed at all times! Great experience all around thanks to her!

Absolutely a pleasure staying with the marina. I worked primarily with Dockmasters Shannon and Michelle. Both were accommodating, kind, and conscientious people with a passion for their jobs. Even with construction nearby, the amenities were available and bathrooms and showers spotless and clean- a true pleasure to have safe harbor with an unfamiliar and new boat. I’ll stay here again!
Update: stayed another 4 days for resupply stop and again- clean, accommodating, and friendly. I will always consider it as my go-to home marina.

The marina is great. The floating docks are first rate. We were just inside the outermost dock toward the ICW and yet zero rocking from passing boats. The floating docks seem to absorb any wave action. Only downside is construction noise adjacent to the marina - building a new park. AND, their gate codes only work on Apple devices at the moment.

The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. Currently the restrooms/showers and laundry are very far from the transient dockage, but they are building new facilities that will enable them to be closer.

What a great clean location. Dock master Saul is very attentive to boaters questions and needs. Called ahead for arrival time and was met at dock for line help. Docks are clean .

Easy in and out slips. Thank you Saul !

We stayed here for three months while getting our boat ready for the Bahamas. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The location is great - good views, good access to the gulf, restaurants and groceries within walking distance, West Marine and Home Depot / Lowes within a short drive. Part of the marina is long-term storage and part is for transient boaters, while we were there our neighbors were all kind and courteous.
The only downsides of the marina are that it's partly under construction with a major project the city is doing; the internet didn't work for me the entire time we were there; and there is a decent amount of current (time your arrivals/departures to slack tide).

Stopped this weekend. This used to be a nice Marina. Water was turned off for days from what we were told (Fire plugs not working either so it is a life/safety issue). South dock on the intracoastal is chained to the pilings, the dock is broken off of the pilings, we asked about it and were told it was since last March it has been like this (this is July). Docks are not washed off. Did not see any security either physical or cameras, was told they are no longer present. Walking up to downtown, it is all blocked off for 2-3 years for a project, you have to navigate around the large homeless population that hangs out at the Marina and surrounding area now, feels unsafe now.

Marina was great! Friendly staff, good communication! Be aware of a lot of construction in the area (6/21) (not the marina itself, but the city) which makes for tough parking, longer walks to the dock. Marina was in a great spot, definitely would stay again!
by Carol C. - Verified user on Jun 05, 2021
Michelle, Christina, Shannon, and Steve were wonderful! They have quite a hike from their office to the north marina where we stayed. Park construction made access to town harder than the usual almost straight up the street but maybe they can accommodate better soon. Facilities very clean and floating docks werewide and secure and cleaned every day from bird droppings. Many friendly people on the docks and in town. Only problem we had was a bent roller on the dock corner rendering it useless when we needed protection as the current pushed us into the dock. Currents can be very strong and run perpendicular to slips. We were not aware of this with all the water traffic during our approach.

Nice marina. The docks are beautiful and well designed. If you are on the inside there is almost no wave action. The bathrooms and showers are a bit of a hike, but clean and well maintained. The only downside was the incredible volume of bird poop on the boat!
We had some pretty good wave action out on the bay, at least 2 ft waves, but the docks stopped almost all of the wave action. Very calm in the marina!

Convenient location. Good service. Good floating docks. Clean showers/restrooms. Out of 2 pumpout stations one was not working and another was blocked of by a (permanently?) docked vessel.

Overall great staging point to jump to Dog Island / Carrabelle.

Great Experience at Clearwater Harbor again. Easy scheduling to meet my needs, Michelle Labrie checked in with me in late afternoon to check on my status, gave me my slip assignment and sailing directions to enter the marina. She helped me secure the boat in the slip, and made sure my shore power connections worked, introduced me to my transient slip neighbors (great people) and, in general, made sure I was at home in the slip for the duration of my stay at Clearwater.
Great security at night.

We would definitely stay again, but not on the G dock. We paid the same amount as a slip and had no guarantee of a parking spot. Every time we came in, public access boats were in our spot and had to be moved. In the morning, our boat was chained up and we had to have someone come unlock it before we could go out. If that dock space is going to be rented, there should absolutely be a better arrangement to reserve the spot and identify who is a paid boat. We could have had the same outcome without paying $90.

Horrible Marina, They gave us first a slip that did not fit, was promised a better slip by a nice fellow that worked there and was very helpful but the woman in charge of the place changed all that and gave us un unprotected docking on the outside at full price, wakes all night and day included....3 miles to the restroom....no fuel dock and we even got an electrical extension stolen during our stay there but they do think they are very fancy.....was told all kind of confusing thing to be change to "need you out of here before labor day weekend starts".. nice way to treat paying customers....over a $100 per day with all that included...place is not worth more than max $20 per day. Worst Marina we ever stayed at.

Great staff and super helpful- They set us up in a perfect location to just relax and watch the boats go by- lovely green area to take our dog out to do his business. Easy transport via water taxi or Uber to anywhere you need to go and a short walk to restaurants bars etc. docks are clean and well cared for and easy to deal with as they are floaters- overall wonderful experience and will absolutely stay there more often!

Great service and very friendly and helpful staff. Not a whole lot to do around the Marina. Most shops, stores and restaurants are a bit of a hike. But I would definitely come back there

Great view, great staff and great stay. My one little quibble would be the poor quality of internet service. But hey, we are boating...who needs internet? LOL

No one at the dock to help. Hard to dock without help and we were told they would be there to help us dock. Hard to get into with the wind and not knowing where to go.

Nice docks, helpful staff and walking distance to downtown. We have a large boat and they only have the outside dock for bigger boats. It sits along the ICW in a very busy section. It is all no wake but you still get a lot of wave action

Great marina. Clean facilities with floating concrete docks. Rick the Dockmaster was very helpful with guiding us in and helping tie up. He also gave us good tips on the area and checked us out in the morning.

Great clean, solid floating extra wide docks and catwalks! Easy on and easy off the boat. All docks have rubber rub rail the entire length of the slip. Other nearby city marinas should take a lesson from this marina and it’s style of dock system. Easy to use and easy to access the pump out station dock. Surprisingly quiet and peaceful for a downtown area. Large grass areas and park just steps off the dock. Great views and smooth calm water all week long even under heavy winds and waves. Thanks Steve!

Michelle was wonderful on the phone and Mike is a great dockmaster. We enjoyed talking to Mike as he is knowledgeable about Clearwater. He maintains the docks and facilities in a clean and professional condition. Downtown setting is nice too. Great transportation system—the Jolley Trolley—right off the docks.

Dock personnel didn’t have a portable radio so they didn’t Respond to incoming boats, key deposit with an office that was 0.2 miles from the transient slips was a pita., WIFI was worthless, docks were clean and well kept, noise from bridge was tolerable, grounds around Marina were well maintained.

We absolutely loved our slip assignment, so after a rocky start with getting moved and not making it in on Thursday, we were thrilled. Thank you!
Steve was a gem, as were the young ladies (I didn't get to meet Rick);

Just stayed for one night on the outside transient dock at our request. We stop here from time to time and always receive great service from the marina staff. You have an outstanding view of the sunset from this location. Just make sure you use adequate fenders since you are exposed to a busy channel and some boaters do not understand what a no wake zone is. It has never bothered us and I is not a big problem for us.

Samantha-Not so good. Upon check-in we were not informed about the WiFi code. We were also not informed that upon departure we only had to call the office for someone to pick up our key and deliver our deposit. Samatha was also not sure about general information about trolleys, etc. She could have been more helpful in my opinion.

This marina has pros and cons. I have spent many nights here going to shows at the Capital theater. The biggest downside of this marina is you have to get past Dockwa to reach the staff. The staff is very pleasant however, only a few have authority to assign slips located inside the basin that are vacant but rented on an annual basis. This is important for transients because if you cannot get a slip inside the basin and you will be assigned a slip on the outside even if they have empty slips inside. On the outside face dock you are in for a bumpy stay due to wakes. This is only a slow speed zone making it bad enough but many ignore even this courtesy and plow by the marina. It is so bad sometimes that it borders on dangerous. Without being able to speak directly with the appropriate staff you are going to be placed on the outside no matter size of boat. Otherwise the marina has great power and water and is only steps away from the downtown district. Clearwater has spent some $ improving this area. Increased security has eliminated most of the sketchy pan-handlers however my wife is still a little nervous waking back from the theater at night and I would certainly recommend Uber any later than midnight. We had only one person approach us during this stay and it wasn't on the walk back after the show but still not a pleasant experience. The marina itself feels safe with locked gates. To sum it up. My wife in the past has always accepted her feelings of insecurity about the dangers presented by threat of physical harm against the benefit of the entertainment provided by the shows. She says life is a compromise however, since Dockwa now manages the marina she informed me we no longer will be visiting the Capital to see the shows due to the discomfort of staying on the outside finger dock.

No one greeting on arrival to help tie up and securing our boat or help with hook up power, water, Etc. No marina packet or information given on codes, keys, etc upon arrival. Trash was overflowing and going into the water, attracting birds.

Great staff and courteous. Nice facilities. Office and Showers very far from slip. Our slip was located next to public pier and homeless people where overlooking our boat most of the night.

Docked in slip E17. Inside on the north side of the bridge. Loved being right on the intracoastal. Well maintained and protected marina. Took ferry over to the beach side - an easy ride. Wi-fi was down due to construction cable cut but they worked hard to get the provider to repair quickly. As soon as repair was complete, we received several making sure we knew is was operational. We would stop over here in the future.
We are glad you enjoyed your visit at the Clearwater Harbor Marina! Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again in the future!
