Dockwa is managed by a bunch of morons. This marina was totally destroyed in Ian...yet, BEFORE our date to go there I was charged and NOW I get a request for a review. Can't fix stupid

It’s nice to be greeted by a friendly, knowledgeable dock hand - that was Jim! Check in gal in the office was pleasant too. Nice docks.

The marina has nice floating docks but is definitely more focused on the small boat rental business than transient boaters. Two small showers that were pretty dirty. Two good restaurants on the property.

Great service. Dockmaster came to help us in when we called on 17. Store staff and bar staff were really friendly. Many worked there for several years, which says a lot for how well the business is run. We were on D dock. There is a fairly strong current caused by the tide. I would recommend caution either side of high tide when it seemed strongest. We saw a lot of birds, tarpon and even dolphins around the docks. We enjoyed it so much we have now permanently moved our boat there.

Great Marina with two restaurants & occasional live music. The office is not really aware of what’s going on at the marina. It’s best to call the Dockhands on Channel 17 if you need anything.

Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Floating docks are nice. We also enjoy the restaurants.

Boat ramp closed all weekend and they acted like I was putting them out to open it for me to bring boat in and take boat out.

Nice marina. Fun watching the pirate ship come and go.

Previous review posted was old. This time they put us on the floating dock. It was great. Unfortunately no dock hands showed up to assist with docking. We did fine but how did they know? Only other issue is with Dockwa. We were billed when we made the reservation rather than after our visit. That is a terrible policy.

Courteous dock staff for assistance unto and out of our slip. So nice.

This marina is NOT accommodating to transient boaters!! We were placed on a dock that was allowed to fly politically affiliated, foul languaged flags. The bathrooms are not clean, and I would NEVER shower in there. The laundry room was filthy and stinky. When asked employees regarding who cleans that area, I was told nobody knew, and nobody really cared. Rude attitude from girls in office. Who is in charge of this run down marina?!?!? Just walking to the restroom area is stinky with trash bins. THIS is not worth the money!!! However, the city of Ft. Myers beach remain to not be able offer any mooring balls because they allow people to park unattended boats to rot on their balls, and spend NO money around their area. Unfortunately there's not really any other choices in Ft. Myers beach for boaters when storms are impending. NOT going to be a cruiser's stop if they don't get things straightened out around here.

If you want to rent a boat this is the marina to go to; HOWEVER, if you are a transient and have other options, I would stay elsewhere. We arrived with vague directions and no assistance whatsoever. Had to plead for a pump-out and actually hunt down someone to get that accomplished (took 2 days), were treated disrespectfully by office when we politely asked when water would be available in the showers as there was no water at all when I tried to take a shower on Saturday morning. It is obvious they prioritize the portion of the marina that makes the money with little regard for cruising mariners who are seeking a place to stay as they travel.

Beautiful, professional marina with great restaurants and plenty of ways to have fun!

Busy place. Not much walking opportunity. Parrot Key restaurant was good.

by Kevin A. - Verified user on Feb 15, 2022
What an absolute gem, the docks are excellent and the staff is even better. We are a 37ft monohull with a 5ft draft and it had more than enough water depth. The restaurants are delicious.

Staff was helpful. Fuel prices were reasonable. Definitely stay here again.

Only complaint is that wifi didnt work the whole week we were there. Other than that, a great stay

by Patrick H. - Verified user on Jan 19, 2022
With the current in there, dock hand was a great help. Floating docks, a cleat was loose but no big deal. Easy stop over and ice restaurants.

The dock help and employees at the ship store and restaurant were wonderful! Very dog friendly.
