Great Location and AMAZING Dock master. Doug is friendly and helpful. Super Time!

For the last several weeks we stayed on both the transient docks and the Mooring. Robert and Doug were extremely helpful in working with S/V Gratitude’s schedule and all the staff were responsive and helpful in meeting our needs. Definitely five stars!

I stayed on a mooring ball and I love it there. The main marina staff could use some help but Tony, Doug and Robert are the best.

The Marina emailed a reservation confirmation as well as an additional welcome with a clear and detailed marina map. Marina assistant Doug called us to confirm our approximate eta and asked that we call him approx. 1/2 hour away which we did. Doug gave us our slip number which we were able to locate on the emailed map. Doug followed up with a call to us as we were approaching the marina and talked us in by landmarks while simultaneously waving to us from the dock. Doug was at our slip to help with lines and hook up of power and water. He gave us a review/tour of amenities as well as secure key card and wifi. After a 25 hour Gulfcrossing, this simply could not have been a better process for someone new to the area.

The dock is well-maintained and the dockmaster, Doug was extremely helpful. Great location for all the downtown St. Petersburg has to offer.

Always a great stop. Robert and Doug exceptional!

by ipcaptbill on Nov 20, 2017

Robert met us at dink dock with keys Seamless and easy. Enjoyed dinner downtown

Doug was great in helping all 6 of our boats get in and safely docked. We love the new Dockwa experience over the old registration system. I can't say enough about how great St. Pete itself is.

by debbieplotts on Nov 19, 2017

I was frustrated prior to our arrival not knowing if we had an arrival due to the use of Docwa howeve one we arrived I could not have been more pleased. Doug called prior to our approach and made it right to our dock. He helped us tie up and made sure we had our keys and knew exactly where everything was. The facility is within walking distance of everything. We had a great time.

It would be nice if shower and bathrooms were cleaned after check out time.

by marta on Nov 13, 2017

The marina people are very friendly and helpful. Free pump out, nice and clean restrooms and showers. Marina is right down town St. Pete - great location. I give one star less because the water around the docks is really dirty, full of trash and debris.

by stevemaher on Nov 12, 2017

We had a fantastic weekend getaway from our typically hectic days. Great location and dock master!

by ghersche12 on Nov 12, 2017

St Pete is a wonderful water town. Always something to do. St Pete Municipal is perfectly located and more importantly protected for a comfortable stay. If you're here on the weekend Doug the Dock Master will make sure you're taken care of. If you're on a.mooring ball make sure any easterly wind will be less than 8knots or you're in for a roll night.

by ftaute on Nov 10, 2017

Spent a night on a mooring buoy. The buoys are all well marked, and in good shape. Marina folks were quick to bring us a key card for the gate. Probably would be bumpy if there is an easterly wind, as there are a lot of reflective waves that bounce off all the seawalls around the mooring basin.

St. Petersburg municipal Marina is excellent. Dockwa is not.

by bg5w on Nov 06, 2017

Have stayed before. Doug is always most helpful and right on top of things.

by tootssea on Nov 03, 2017

Doug was an amazing dockmaster. He was very friendly, helpful and when we couldn't get us on the face dock he accommodated us by providing a slip that was actually owned by the people in the slip next door. Way to go above and beyond for customer service. Thank you! We all had a great time and the Punta Gorda Sailing Club will be back!!!! Dotti and Mark Vaivoda S/V Toots Sea

I love this marina and the staff Tony and Robert are the best but I dislike the fact the City has started using Dockwa. This is not an improvement. However Dockwa is not concerned or interested in why I do not like Dockwa. However I will hit on a few points just in case this gets posted in its entirety. 1) I cannot verify my reservation timely.
2) I need to find a WiFi to verify, something that is sometimes difficult aboard 3) I have to phone the marina for particulars and to cancel 4) I am unable to request special services when making reservation 5) All the above creates a lot of uncertainty 6) Phone App does not use TEXT messaging only email see #2 above 7) There is no way to op-out of Dockwa unsolicited advertisement. 8) Additionally, if I wanted to leave a review I would do it in Active Captain. 9) Last Dockwa would not accept my personal email address because it didn't meet its criteria.

This service could be greatly improved by updating the app to use text. Additionally, why cannot Dockwa calculate "face dock" docking correctly? This failure creates lost dockage revenue. Fix this.

It was great, thank you!

by carlg on Oct 13, 2017

Very fine facility. Friendly, helpful staff. No information handout, so I had to call for wi-fi password. Way, way overpriced. Should not charge for bowsprit length. Charging by length is done to approximate usage of facility. A bowsprit does not add people, interior space, electrical usage, trash, etc.

by kingge on Aug 26, 2017

The staff was great Doug was extremely helpful. Great location. Would definitely use this marina again if in the area.

by thicks39 on Aug 07, 2017

Everyone was so nice and helpful

by loralock on Aug 06, 2017

Nice docks, friendly staff!

by bruceetzler on Aug 05, 2017

Very friendly and helpful. Doug was awesome. Thanks

by mwkuzel on Jul 12, 2017

It is always good at St Pete Marina. Extra nice and helpful staff and very decent facilities. However the new reservation system Dockwa leaves much to be desired. Having to wait up to 24 hours for a confirmation is wrong. I used to be able to call the marina from the middle of the bay and they could tell right then and there if there was a vacancy. Or not. So I went online and did the reservation request. Now, it was getting real close to 24 hours later when I decided to call the marina directly. I mean if it was full I could stay at Marjorie Park Davis Islands and see fireworks. So a marina person lady was saying welllll,,,, we will have to see if there are any cancellations and such and that the transient dock was for 29 ft and up. (I'm 26') . So I asked at least call and tell me if I cant come so I can make other plans and she did call back within the 24 hour window and say they could put me in a slip instead. Great joy for real. We shared an end dock with another craft about the same size. Kind of tight but ok. But the transient dock had two boats on it and 350 feet of open space. It just made all the drama and waiting seem unnecessary unless a dozen boats had cancelled all of a sudden on a beautiful July 4th. This is the electronic age, the system it should work faster and be more accurate. I mean, I can call a hotel and know immediately if there is a vacancy. Is Dockwa charging the city for this inconvenience? I like talking to a dockmaster, not a website.

Marina Response:
Good Morning Mr. Kuzel, We are disappointed that you did not have a good stay at the St. Petersburg Marina and sorry that Dockwa was not what you expected. Please feel free to call us direct and we can always make a reservation for you. It will go through Dockwa, but the confirmation will be immediate. For safety reasons we do not put vessels on the transient dock, less than 29' in length. We do our best to find an empty slip or seasonal slip, for smaller vessels, so we may accommodate as many visitors that may want to visit our great city. Please feel free to call me anytime. Sincerely, Joan McGowan Marina Operations Supervisor 727-893-7329

Doug was amazing!!! Called to see where we were around our arrival since we were a bit late. Met us on the dock. handled all our lines and electric. Tide was really high and he even loaned us a ladder to get on and off the boat. Great experience and great customer service!!! We will be back.

by kinler333 on Jun 06, 2017

Great folks and lovely area. We will be back again in the future.

by drvraney on May 30, 2017

Remarkable Municipal facility with outstanding helpful people.

by larrytibbe on May 25, 2017

Very adequate and convenient to St Pete activities but could be improved.

by scolman on May 21, 2017

Everything was great but mooring rope on 25 or 24, the one further west was so covered with growth I couldn't use it . Other than that great stay
