Wonderful staff, and amenities.

Location, staff and cleanliness make this marina stand out! Staff is welcoming and willing to help. Bathrooms are spotless and water is always hot. Parks, coffee shops and restaurants are only a short walk away. This marina isn't just a stop over, it's a destination.

Overpriced for what you get. $3.5/ft plus $20 for 50 amp and tax equals $192 a night for a 46 foot boat. Very small pool, grills that are not clean and a boating lounge that is old and stuffed with packages. Breakwater does not stop wave action if east winds are moderate strength. Dock hands turned down our request for line handlers due to lack of staff but when I went to the office there were 2 men sitting at desks and one person in a safe harbor shirt playing on a phone.

Great stay! We look forward to staying again.

Friendly staff and excellent floating docks, it can be a little tight coming in and out.

Loved this marina! Well maintained, friendly people all around, walking distance to st. Pete, ice machine that takes a credit card, and a nice pool! We will be back!

Great find! The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable, beautiful pool, walking distance to all things St. Pete & the pier AND a great dog friendly beach! Definitely will be back.

The marina is 1.2 miles from the Pier & downtown area, so a bit far for those with bad backs to walk. Floating docks are nice. Fuel dock almost a mile from the slips, and very narrow there w/long wait due to in & out volume. Very protected harbor w/sea wall. Andrew helpful and nice. Shawn demeaning to women was my impression from the way he spoke to me when I called for fuel & docking directions. My husband was so agitated that we did not call again for docking assistance after waiting and not getting fuel. I would have been helpful to have, but thankfully a slip holder came & assisted w/lines. Fees $1 less per ft. at Municipal marina which is far better location. We will plan ahead in future to use that marina for convenience to restaurants, provisions & attractions. We use Safe Harbor Marinas frequently.

We had an amazing stay at Safe Harbor – Harborage in March. It’s a very nice marina with clean grounds, very nice pool/grill/tiki area and even an Amazon Locker! The slips are on floating docks with dock boxes which is very nice when traveling with your four-legged kids. They are very pet friendly with water bowls placed around as well as a special area for them to do their business with complementary poo bags and trash can. The staff and Marina Members were very friendly and welcoming. There is a restaurant on the water (Big Catch at Salt Creek) a couple blocks down that is attached to the Harborage Marina. The food was great, including the Yappy Hour menu where the “Hot Diggy Dawg” did not disappoint our pooch! We were walking distance to town, the Dali, and more… We will absolutely be back.

Excellent service and location. Can pump yourself out from vacuum pots on the dock which is very convenient. Staff friendly and cooperative. Neighbors quiet and friendly. The wifi worked but slow at times as expected. Convenient location. More expensive than St Pete Municipal but was worth the price difference.

Great Marina! It is convenient to downtown, nice floating docks, friendly and helpful staff. Clean restrooms and showers. Amazon Locker Pickup Location right at the dock! We'll visit again.

by rcwilkins on Jan 28, 2021
Staff was very helpful; however, they were short staffed and no one was there to help guide us into slip and help with docking. Its a huge marina so its a hike to walk the dogs. But overall, a good marina and the office staff was great.

Great place helpful and friendly

by beachbound2 on Oct 29, 2020
We had an excellent stay and experience at Safe Harbor Harborage Marina. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. * Floating docks! You really appreciate this after spending time tied up to fixed docks. *Harbor area very well protected by breakwater so water in the dock area is calm. *Fairly close to amenities however next time we will be bringing bikes. *St Pete is worth visiting We will be returning!

by kevincodol on Oct 12, 2020
Great location , Great amenities, close to downtown, just an all round great marina.

by jeffdarr on Sep 17, 2020
We stayed at this marina for a little over a month and had a vey good experience. The staff were super helpful, most everything was in good repair and the marina is well protected from weather. There are a lot of liveaboards in this marina which make for a very nice community. Restaurants are in walking/biking distance if you don't mind walking/biking a mile. St. Pete is a lovely city and we are looking forward to our next visit.

by ddabs on Aug 29, 2020
Easily the most protected marina on Tampa Bay. Floating docks, easy access to the Bay, and walking distance to downtown.

by billsseacraft on Aug 24, 2020
Very clean and staff was very friendly. Facilities that we used (shower and pool) were both excellent. Easy walking to 100's of restaurants. We will be back.

by brichardson on Jun 16, 2019

by sonlovers46 on Jan 02, 2019
Wonderful Experience at the Harborage ! Friendly staff and people on the docks. Nice amenities. Grills, a pool. Boaters enjoying the quiet life. Beautiful location with great water quality...tons of marine life...we even saw a Manatee near J dock. Downtown "Scene", museums, and parks are walkable along the water.

by ghersche12 on Sep 02, 2018
Great staff, nice clean facility, pool was nice. Close walk to downtown.
Marina Response:
Thank you for visiting Harborage Marina and for taking the time to leave us a review! We are happy to hear that you had a nice visit. Please come back and stay with us again soon.

by edboud on Jul 08, 2018
Clean, easy access, well shielded. Staff is very courteous, called the day befor with slip assignment. Needs to post slip map on their website.

by kristin_tonkin on Apr 27, 2018
Our party spent two nights in a wet slip at Harborage Marina. We stayed mid week so it was quieter and less traffic. (just the way we like it). The floating docks are nice and the restrooms and showers were kept clean. There are plenty of bars and restaurants with in waking distance and much more with a short Uber ride. We will be planning another stay with them in the future.

by bobgosse on Mar 22, 2018
Excellent facility and good service - weather was cold but that was not your fault. We will come again.

by chriscarina on Feb 17, 2018
Really an excellent marina! Easy, deep water access with easy docking. All the docks are floating and well maintained. Each dock comes with a dock box. Best of all, it is well protected from swells and wakes so you rarely even feel a ripple. The boating community there is very friendly and open. The staff are readily available and very helpful. Amenities include clean restrooms/showers, inexpensive laundry, fairly good WiFi, mobile pump-out, fuel dock, and a Captain's Den with coffee and widescreen TV. St. Pete is within walking distance, as is the library at USF (with free, VERY fast internet access.) St. Pete is a great city with lots of entertainment, restaurants, shopping, etc., and has an excellent public transit system. And some of the best beaches in Florida are just a few miles away. I think this is the best marina in St. Pete!

A Wanderer’s guide to Safe Harbor Harborage Marina

Nestled along the beautiful University of South Florida St. Petersburg campus, Safe Harbor Harborage Marina offers top notch amenities for any boater’s needs–from the small to the mega-yacht, as it is the only full-service mega yacht port on Florida’s West Coast. Pull in, tie up, and enjoy the pool or while also providing easy access to all St. Petersburg has to offer.

Approach and Dockage

Safe Harbor Harborage Marina is located in protected Bayboro Harbor on the south side of Albert Whitted Airport. Enter through the Bayboro Harbor Inlet channel. A Coast Guard station and Salt Creek Inlet will be on your port side. The entrance to the marina docks will be on your starboard side. Docks are labeled by letters and each hold different sized slips, so check with the dockmaster where you’re headed before pulling in. Be sure to keep an eye out on moving sailboat masts to see if any are coming out while you’re headed in.

Marina Amenities

Bathrooms/Showers The bath house is located underneath the marina office. Showers and bathrooms are located in each of the women’s and men’s rooms.

Laundry Credit card operated washing machines and dryers in the bathhouse.

Pet Access Poynters Park is located a quarter mile away with great green space along the water to take your pet to shore.

Pool Relax by the marina’s private pool with great views of the marina or at the tiki hut for shade.

Fuel/Pump-Out Fuel dock with gas and diesel is located near Harborage’s dry storage facility on Salt Creek half a mile from the marina. Harborage offers a pump-out boat for a charge on Tuesdays and Fridays or there is a public self-service pump-out available at the mouth of Salt Creek.

Grills Located in front of the pool making it a perfect spot to cook a meal with friends.

Proximity to Attractions by Land

Getting Around A lot of the main attractions are accessible by foot or bike. If you don’t have a bike (or even if you do), it’s easy to pick up an e-scooter for rent via Veo and Razor to scoot around the city. The city also offers trolleys for 50 cents a ride that can take you around downtown and even to the beach and back.

St. Pete Pier (1.3 miles) Opened in 2020, the newest version of the St. Pete Pier is a fun interactive park with restaurants, art, playgrounds, and more. Take a trolley or walk the roughly half mile length of the pier, stopping along the way to dodge sprinklers at the Splash Pad, run around the Glazer Family Playground (best to go at night to see the Bending Art Sculpture aglow), or grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants on the pier.

The Hangar Restaurant (0.6 miles) On the other side of the marina is the city’s Albert Whitted Airport, where small and personal aircraft take off and land from all over the area. Even better is you can watch the activity on the runway while enjoying a delicious meal at the Hangar Restaurant. They’re open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but recommend coming for their award winning breakfast and sitting on their back patio to enjoy the views.

St. Pete’s Art Scene (All museums 1.3 miles or less) St. Petersburg is home to a bustling art scene–with a ton to see and do within steps of the marina. The Dali Museum has the largest Salvador Dali collection outside of Spain. Over 20,000 works of art, including those by Monet and Georgia O’Keefe are on display at the Museum of Fine Arts. The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art is a collection cultivated by St. Petersburg residents’ Tom and Mary James and reflecting their love for the West. The Morean Arts Center hosts the Chihuly Collection featuring Dale Chihuly’s glass artwork.

Saturday Market (1 mile) If you’re here on a Saturday, you can’t miss St. Pete’s Saturday Morning Market, open every Saturday from 9 am - 2 pm from Oct-May in the Al Lang Stadium parking lot. Stock up on fresh produce, crafts, and tasty food from 125+ local merchants. Hardest part will be deciding what you can fit on your boat!

Flatbread & Butter (1.6 miles) Nestled in the Historic Uptown neighborhood on the edge of Historic Round Lake Park, some of St. Pete’s best pizza can be found at Flatbread & Butter. A cozy restaurant, you can order your pizza and a glass of wine and eat in the restaurant or take your pizza to go back to the boat or make yourself a picnic and enjoy at the park.

Vinoy Park (1.7 miles) North of St. Petersburg Municipal Marina, this park is great to walk, bike, run or take a blanket and relax in the grass all while taking in great water views of Tampa Bay.

Pete’s General & Pete’s Bagels (2.3 miles) Founded by a New York native with a vision to bring fresh bagels to St. Pete, Pete’s General and Pete’s Bagels is a must-stop if you love fresh baked bread, pastries, and creative, locally made crafts and goods. Half the store is a bakery and the other half is filled with fun Florida-inspired items for sale from t-shirts to posters and more. It’s worth the trek.

Mazzaro’s Italian Market (4.3 miles) A full-fledged Italian market with a bakery, deli, coffee bar, butcher, seafood counter, wine store, and more. It’s a bit out of walking distance, but if you have a car or bike, it’s worth the trip to check out the scene, and get some inspiration to book a future trip to Italy after you’re done cruising Florida.

Publix (0.7 miles) If you need to stock up on groceries, Publix is an easy walk or bike from the docks.

Proximity to Attractions by Sea

Sunshine Skyway Bridge (12 miles) St. Pete provides boaters with easy access to open water cruising as well as the intracoastal waterway. On a calm day (or windy one if you sail) cruise out to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, for views of one of the longest cable bridges in the world.

Downtown Tampa (21 miles) Head the opposite direction to Tampa where you can tie up to one of several restaurants or area docks to explore and enjoy a meal.

Gulfport via the Intracoastal (14 miles) If you’re looking for more protected waters, hug the coast (but follow the channel) and make your way to the intracoastal where you’ll pass Eckerd college students taking a break between classes on the campus beach. Continue farther north up the channel and either drop the hook and dinghy in or if your boat can fit, tie up at Gulfport’s free dinghy day dock to explore the shops and restaurants in this quaint town on the water.

The Big Catch (0.3 miles by land; 0.5 miles by water) Easily accessible by land or water (they have a small dock for a few boats and dinghies). Tucked away on Salt Creek, you’ll quickly understand why this charming tiki bar and restaurant is a popular watering hole for locals. Grab a seat at the bar or at a picnic table and admire the boats at the several boat yards that line this quiet cove. The food is fresh, the drinks are cold and the music is fun–what more could you want!
