Summer Begins

We hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable boating experience over the Memorial Day weekend.  The Memorial Day weekend is always the kick-off for the summer boating season.  It was good to see so many old and new friends return to Holiday Harbor Marina and Sunset Grille.  Please have a safe and enjoyable summer, and let us know if we can help make it so.

Red Snapper Season

The red snapper fishing season has been established for both Federal and State waters.  Here are the basics:

FEDERAL WATERS: The recreational season for red snapper in Gulf FEDERAL waters is June 1-3 for private recreational anglers and June 1-July 19 for federally permitted for-hire vessels.  Federal waters are from 9 nautical miles and out.

STATE WATERS:  The recreational season for red snapper in Florida state waters is a total of 78-days.  Florida state waters are from shore to 9 nautical miles.

Further information on regulations for Florida waters and Federal waters, including open dates, gear requirements, size requirements and harvest limits, can be found at:


We have two gift shops, one at the main marina office and one at the North Store next to Sunset Grille.  We invite you to visit either shop and see our new unique coastal items, as well as old faithful items, like our own T-shirts and caps.


Sunset Grille has a new frozen drink machine that makes the best creamy smooth drinks.  One (or two) would be just right for a hot summer day.  Try one on your next visit.

Arrived mid December so it was very open. They had us dock at the restaurant dock for the night. Restaurant is basic but the food and service was good. New docks.
