Nice mooring field, first class marina. A little dolly due to traffic.

Great marina and restaurant!

I’ve stayed here previously-even kept my boat here-for a few months and this time it was a poor experience; I requested mooring ball by phone and asked for something close-but when I got my assignment I was as far out as could pinger-and I could see tons of empty balls closer. The worst part is I had to drive around the mooring field for 49 minutes-hailing the marina on two different radios on ch16 and 68 and nobody would answer; I could hear my call on other boats as I went by them . Took 10 phone calls before I got thru to a person -was hung up on, and finally got my assignment. This was on a Thursday afternoon-not really a busy time. They told me they would see if they could move me closer on Friday but never followed up w me. Facilities are top notch.

Quite night,low winds. The marina hands were busy on the holiday, took a little time to get them on the radio for ball assignment.

Location,location,location! We went straight to the fuel dock: Diesel, water, & a pumpout. Enjoyed our two nights on a mooring, the City Park, and short dingy ride to and from. Ate a lunch at the Tiki Bar on the south side of the marina. A key F.O.B. gained access to the bathrooms and showers. Pleasant and helpful staff.

We enjoyed our time here on a mooring ball for 4 nights waiting out some weather. The field is in front of a small pedestrian island that is convenient for taking the dog to shore. The dinghy dock is a bit of a trek but the views of all the beautiful yachts make it nice. The bathrooms are very nice individual units. The outdoor restaurant is fun for happy hour and has great views.

We have stayed as transients many times at Marina Jack. But this was the first visit tied to a mooring ball. We chose it instead of a dock slip since we would be there nearly two weeks. The mooring ball was $30 a day and a slip would have been $100 more. After we tied to the pendant, I was skeptical of the mooring line but Patrick and Bill came out in a marina boat to inspect it. They assured me it was fine. We had two lines through the pendant eye, each coming back to a bow cleat. It did hold strong through several days of high winds (25mph+) and waves. Being a 45’ powerboat at over 35,000#, we were the largest in the field at the time. Throughout our lengthy stay we had superb service from everybody at Marina Jack. The facility and location are outstanding and we plan to return on our next visit. While this mooring field is exposed to SW and West winds, I recommend it to all my fellow cruisers.

A little hard to find the mooring ball—the electronic map of the mooring field couldn’t be opened on either Apple or Samsung. But after a quick search, was a beautiful cityscape and awesome evening.

Great stop. Cheap ($30), easy, right in the middle of the downtown action. Access to all the marinas facilities, which were neat and clean. Will always stop here when I’m town
