KEEP YOUR BOAT IN TOP RUNNING SHAPE
With the off-season approaching, if you do not plan to use your boat much, it may be a good time to inquire about our monthly RUN AND WASH service for $60/month. With this service, we will launch your boat into the water and start it, let it get to temperature, then do a quick wash to get any dust off the inside. Running your engines monthly helps maintain the engines and batteries. If you are interested in this service, please call the Marina Office at 850-492-0555.
BLUE ANGELS HOMECOMING SHOW
The Blue Angels Homecoming Show is scheduled for November 11 & 12, 2022. At this time the Show is scheduled to be held at NAS Pensacola and is FREE and open to the public. Gates open at 8:00 a.m. and the show begins at 9:30 a.m. On-land spectators are encouraged to bring their own seating OR paid seating is available for purchase.
The traditional schedule would include:
Wednesday, November 9 – Breakfast with the Blues & arrival of other aircrafts
Thursday, November 10 – Arrival Day and Dress Rehearsal
Friday, November 11 – Homecoming Air Show, Day 1
Saturday, November 12 – Homecoming Air Show, Day 2

With the show at NAS, boaters will be able to see virtually all of the air show part by anchoring either in the bay or in Grand Lagoon adjacent to the base. With an incredible lineup of aerobatic performers, along with the Blue Angels, this is a great opportunity for Marina customers to see the spectacular show with less hassle than the summer show. Make plans now to be there!
COOL WEATHER? NO PROBLEM!
As part of our remodeling following Hurricane Sally, including new flooring and pull-down curtains, much of our seating is now “all weather”. Even on cold days the heated bar area, which seats over 65, is nice and cozy. And, you still have the great view. So, don’t let a little cool (or wet) weather keep you from enjoying a visit to Sunset Grille.
The 2022 Football season is in full swing. Sunset Grille has 6 big-screen TVs showing all of your favorite games that are broadcast. You can watch all of your teams compete while enjoying a delicious meal and drink.
